Dr. Carter was first introduced to the benefits of chiropractic care when he was playing lacrosse in college. He was suffering from neck pain and frequent headaches and a close friend suggested he try chiropractic care. Dr. Carter was surprised at how quickly chiropractic care was able to help his symptoms when so many traditional treatments had failed. Dr. Carter continued to use chiropractic care to help him perform his best for the rest of his college playing days. Dr. Carter uses his first experience seeing a chiropractor to help him relate to his patients seeing a chiropractor for the first time or seeing a chiropractor as a last resort.
