Let me tell you my story.
It was nineteen years ago when I was a varsity wrestler for the University of Minnesota, but I developed a painful condition that caused numbing and tingling in my left arm and hand knows as carpal tunnel syndrome. In my case, it came suddenly. The pain in my hands was so intense that I could not clench my fist, or even button my shirt, let alone compete as an athlete. I was afraid that I’d lose my scholarship if the disability continued. The orthopedic surgeon for the Minnesota Vikings said that surgery was all he could do for me. So, they performed surgery and after many months of rehabilitation I tried to return to competition but just couldn’t. Years later the same symptoms began to occur in my right hand and arm. A friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The Chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then adjusted my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I got relief and I could use my hand again. It worked so well that now I’m a chiropractor.
My name is Michel Buechter-Philipak and I have worked in office administration for twenty years. The past fifteen have been spent in the medical field specializing in Chiropractic care. I believe that healthcare should focus on natural, safe, non-addictive remedies to decrease pain and improve quality of life. I enjoy drawing, exercising, and listening to music. I look forward to meeting with the people in this community.
