I was 15 years old performing a back flip at a gymnastics camp and landed awkwardly on my head and neck. I couldn't move my neck very well after and it was pretty painful, but I could move my arms and legs, thus nobody was real concerned about spinal cord injury. I was sent home and told to see a doctor when I could. The next day, my parents took me to a local Chiropractor for the first time. I walked in nervous but walked out of there completely pain free. I remember telling my mother as we left that was what I wanted to do.
On my journey through schooling, I considered different types of healthcare; Medicine, Chiropractic, and Osteopathy. As I researched the different philosophies and areas of focus, I eventually chose Chiropractic. In 2001, I began practicing Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Sioux Falls and in the spring of 2002, we relocated our practice and Natural Arts was born. I truly feel blessed to be able to do what I do every day and simply take care of my patients and feel just as blessed to raise our five children in such a great community.

After suffering a knee injury playing high school football, I was sent to a Chiropractor for treatment and remember very clearly seeing grimacing patients limp and hobble their way into treatment rooms and just a short time later leave upright, walking fine, and smiling! I was immediately fascinated how these people gained such immediate relief in such a short time frame. How was this possible??!! That day I began looking into a career in chiropractic and never looked back.
If you read my beautiful wife's bio first, which I know I most people will because...well, look at her! :) then you know our story of how we opened this place and how much we love living here and raising our minions. It is great to come here every day and do what we do as a team. We each have areas we like to focus on we've often discussed about how this allows us to cover a lot of ground in what we can effectively treat.
Personally, I have utilized our services to effectively treat and overcome an ever growing list of injuries; ruptured discs in both my neck and lower back, how to rehabilitate a torn rotator cuff and labrum in my shoulder without surgery, and most recently a suspected knee ligament tear or at least a severe sprain. I have used these experiences to incorporate into my treatment plants and provide better service to my patients. It is one thing to treat these things and gain effectiveness with experience, but its an entirely different thing to have a deeper understanding of what it feels like and to experience first hand how each therapy works and the timing of when to introduce what in a patient's treatment plan.
