Before his life path led him to chiropractic care, Dr. Brian was a licensed athletic trainer. He loved working with high school athletes, but there was no room for preventive care. All of the work was reactive, rather than proactive. Dr. Brian was often left frustrated because there was very little he could do to help these athletes improve their performance and prevent injuries. Instead, he was only able to help manage their pain after the injuries occurred.
“I looked around for other options that would allow my proactive personality to be shared with others. It felt like Chiropractic gave me the best set of tools to do that.”
How Hard Are YOU Willing to Work?
For as long as he can remember, Dr. Brian has held to the belief that we get out of life what we put into it. In his chiropractic practice, that principle shows in his commitment to the health of our community one person at a time. His promise to each and every patient is, and will continue to be, that he will work for your health just as hard as you are willing to do the same.
The benefit to this, is that when you put in the effort, not only will you see great results to be able to “level up” your life, but you’ll also save money in the process.
You see, what led Dr. Brian to chiropractic in the first place is that in his previous career as a licensed athletic trainer at a large high school, he discovered that being forced to be reactive to injuries rather than proactive to prevent injury and elevate performance left him frustrated and unfulfilled in his work.
What he discovered during his chiropractic education at Parker College of Chiropractic was that the very nature of chiropractic care, when practiced in a wellness model, allowed patients to not only reduce pain and other symptoms, but also to begin to strengthen not only their muscles, but also their immune systems and healing processes.
By doing this, his patients begin to discover that what they thought was “top gear” for them, was often just a grind that kept them from becoming the powerful, impactful, fulfilled person that God created each of us to be.
While his own health and chiropractic journey is far from “complete,” what he has learned working in health care for the past 25 years all comes together to help you, your family, and (by extension) the rest of the community to become stronger, more efficient, more productive, and (potentially) happier that before.
Give us a call and let’s explore how you might be able to create a new Genesis of health and well-being you may never have thought possible before!
An Education in Chiropractic
Dr. Brian attended Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas. While, initially, the goal was to focus on sports chiropractic, he soon learned that chiropractic care could help people, from all walks of life, to prevent injury and sickness and live a full, vibrant life.
Dr. Brian gained the education and skills to be a great chiropractor and wanted to leave the school better than when he first began. He was elected student body president twice and was able to serve students from his seat on the student council.
Michelle is likely the first face you’ll see when entering Genesis Family Chiropractic. She serves as the Office Manager, New Patient Advocate, dog Mom and most importantly, Dr. Brian’s right-hand.
“The most important job I have is helping our patients feel like family.”
Michelle is very active and when she’s not in the office, you can find her hanging out with Dr. Brian and their dog, Boomer, training for marathons, sharpening her already excellent culinary skills, singing on the worship team at White River Christian Church, or reading and enjoying life with friends and family.
Michelle is also extremely passionate about helping others and literally “puts legs to her heart” by participating in half- and full-marathons that give back to causes like Team World Vision’s clean water projects in Africa.
Michelle has long been an advocate of chiropractic care. During Dr. Brian’s time as a student at Parker University, Michelle received chiropractic care from student interns in one of the on-campus clinics. This experience gave her a new perspective of what it means to be at an optimal level in her health and wellness without relying on medication to “treat” her allergies.
As the newest member of our team, Boomer is a 5-year-old Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog that we rescued through Blackjack Animal Rescue. He is Michelle’s running partner, having helped her train for for all three marathons and several half-marathons. In 2018, he logged over 500 miles training with Michelle.
When we’re at the office, he loves to hang out and get treats and snuggles from all our patients while brightening their day. And, on occasion, he’s been known to chase wadded up face paper to make sure it doesn’t escape the wastebasket.
Rita is the newest face of the Genesis Family Chiropractic team. She is an 8-month-old Catahoula Leopard Dog - Labrador Retriever mix that we rescued through Blackjack Animal Rescue.
She is full of energy and LOVES to greet everyone that comes to visit. Most days she loves naps, treats and playing with big brother Boomer.
Outside the office, she is the biggest snuggler we've met. She loves to curl up in the recliner with Momma or Poppa and snuggle in for another nap! Rita is in the beginning stages of learning to run with Michelle. By the end of 2020, she will have logged many, many miles helping Michelle train for her next race.
Boz was adopted the summer before Dr. Brian went to chiropractic college. Even at 16 ½ -years- old, Boz was a still fairly active Lab mix. He was the first canine Dr. Brian adjusted. In fact, Boz’s vet and Dr. Brian credit Boz’s longevity to chiropractic care, great nutrition, exercise and lots of love. Boomer and Boz used to love playing together. Boz would play intensely with Boomer for about 10 minutes or so and then he would decide he had enough and would retreat to his favorite spot on the couch.
Boz was a fantastic dog and he enjoyed every minute he spent with our patients, just like we enjoyed every minute we spent with him. He will be missed.
“When we adopt a dog or any pet, we know it is going to end with us having to say goodbye, but we still do it. And we do it for a reason: They bring so much joy and optimism and happiness. They attack every moment of every day with that attitude.” ~ W. Bruce Cameron
