Dr. Birk was introduced to chiropractic early in his University schooling. As the story goes..
"Like most students, when I was in University I wasn't exactly sure which field I wanted to go into, except that I wanted to do something that would allow me to help people. One day I was with a good friend and his mother on our way to school when she said she had to stop off somewhere, to see a Chiropractor who she went regularly to for relief from migraines. To be honest I was a bit skeptical and didn’t think it was something I needed. Then one day on my way to school again, it hit me! Literally! I was parked at a light when I was struck from behind by a truck going 50 kilometers an hour! The next morning I woke up with excruciating neck pain from whiplash and thought of my earlier visit with the chiropractor. Well, to make a long story short, I ended up going to him. He did a thorough exam, took some films, and then “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I got immediate relief and my neck healed within three months. It worked so well that I went to Chiropractic school myself!"
......chiropractic corrected the cause of his problems, restoring his health completely. Most recently he completed his long dream of becoming a published author with his book Back to Life which has many of his health and longevity techniques which he practices regularly himself. Dr. Birk remains excited about practicing chiropractic and about really helping people to eliminate their pain, improve their health, and improve their life. Dr. Birk works with the whole person in improving spiritual, emotional, nutritional and physical health. He likes you to know, no matter the circumstances, there is hope and that you can overcome illness, injury, pain and depression.
