Chiropractic school gave him an opportunity to learn all about the art, science, and philosophy of chiropractic medicine.

In the time since, he has seen chiropractic adjustments work wonders for people who had already tried everything else. He sees chiropractic visits as an essential component of a healthy, optimal life.  Dr. Josh believes he can make the world a better place by helping people better express health. When people are healthy, their relationships, wealth, fulfillment, and sense of purpose also improve. Health is largely a product of our daily habits and actions, so a holistic view taking everything into account is the best way to achieve and maintain good health.
