Your Functional Health and Wellness Expert
Dr. Gordon (we just use his first name, it’s a lot easier than his last!) received his graduate degree from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas in 2007 and is a proud alumni of UVSC in Orem, Utah. Prior to that he served an LDS mission in Southern California.
Over the years he has attained much experience and diverse exposure to all facets of health and wellness and now utilizes some of the latest innovations in the industry.
I grew up in Southern California with a health conscious father. My dad worked out everyday of his life and always ate the healthiest foods possible. He grew up in a home where taking care of your body and eating right was very important. My mom on the other hand, grew up in a home where her parents had one of the worst diets you could imagine and topped it off with sodas, cigarettes and alcohol. Luckily she married my Dad who taught her the importance of eating right and the benefits it would have on her later on down the road. Her parents and siblings all struggle with major health issues that she has avoided completely leaving her free to travel the world educating people on the importance of good nutrition. So, all of my life I was taught the importance of taking care of my body and eating proper foods. I did not always follow my parent’s example as a kid, but as I got older I became more educated about health and wellness. Growing up, I always loved anatomy and I knew I wanted to do something that would help people.
I graduated high school at the age of 15 and started college on a path to become an Anesthesiologist. During my freshman year of English I had to write a research paper on anesthesiology. As I started to learn more about the limited scope of practice that an Anesthesiologist has, I decided that was not for me. At the time, my mother was working for a close friend of the family that was a Chiropractor. As I spent time in his office, I saw patients come in that were either in pain, or suffering from some kind of illness. As he worked with these patients, I was able to see them return to better health and most of them were better off than before they were injured or sick. He was able to get people better without the harmful use of drugs or surgery, and these patients were able to return to a normal healthier life. Seeing the difference this doctor made in people’s lives had a huge impact on me.
I wanted to be treated to see if chiropractic was really as beneficial as this doctor said it was. He started treating me and pointed out to me problems with my posture. As he began treating me, I noticed a great difference in not only my posture but also how I felt. I was impressed by the fact that I was not getting sick as often as I use to, and as often as the people around me were. It was then that I realized the importance of taking care of my body so I could prevent all the health problems my mother’s family has gone through. As I spent time in the office, I learned the importance of receiving chiropractic care on a regular basis and that by receiving chiropractic care you could prevent the majority of disease in the world today! I was also able to see people that were in pain and sick, like my mom’s family, return to a better quality of life with a better understanding of how to care for their body. For the next year, I was this doctor’s shadow. I wanted to learn everything I could about chiropractic. So from the time I was 16, I began my path of becoming a Chiropractor and have loved every step of the way!
