"A Doctor's Confession to the Elk Grove Village Area"

And Why, Despite all, I still do what I do...

Dr. Dan and twins

Dear Friend,

I want to give credit where credit is due. So prehaps a confession can help clear the air so there is no misunderstanding. Before I talk about my confession though, let me say a few other things first.

Let me start by explaining the photo in this letter. You know, when I meet people in town they usually say, "oh yeah, I know you, you're Dr. Dan. I've seen your ad with that picture of you and the cute little girls." More about the twins later, but first I need to tell you a little about my childhood.

I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin. I started doing farm work for our neighbor when I was 10 years old. When I was 12 I suffered a terrible accident. While sitting in front of a tractor to pick the rocks out of the field, I fell. Not only did the tires of the tractor roll over me, but the trailer filled with rocks did too. I was rushed to the emergency room where they did an exam and x-rays. I had no broken bones and the bruises faded with time, but now my hands and feet were always numb. I also had a stiff neck and difficulty walking. My parents took me to many doctors before someone suggessted trying a chiropractor. 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 soon walk again without pain. It worked so well that I believe that is when I decided what I wanted to be when I grew up.

Now for Danielle & Antoinette, the beautiful babies in the picture. When they were born they were very small. One twin was so stiff she couldn't bend & her neck was twisted to one side, while the other was so loose she was like jelly. After discussing it with their mother I adjusted the twin's spines. They loved it! It was extremely comfortable. Within weeks we saw tremendous results. Now at the age of six months, Danielle can actually support herself & has more strength & Antoinette's muscles have relaxed and she can move her neck all around. Both are gaining a lot of much needed weight.

It's strange how life leads us where we are supposed to be because now people come to me for help with their neck problems and childhood illnesses. People also come to me with headaches, migraines, back pain, shoulder/arm pain, whiplash, numbness in limbs, carpal tunnel syndrome, ear infections, asthma, colic and allergies just to name a few.

Several times a day, patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I really can't take the credit for their health.

My confession is that I've never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure and allow the body to heal itself. We get tremendous results. It's as simple as that.

Many people find that they are actually saving money on their healthcare expenses by seeing a chiropractor...studies show that chiropractic can double your immune capacity, naturally and without drugs. The immune system fights colds, flu and other sicknesses. With regular chiropractic care, you may not be running off to the doctor as much.
