Dr Terry Zavitz
When I was seven years old I finally saw a chiropractor, Dr Craig Zavitz. (Oddly enough no relation to me). I went in because I was playing hockey and had a low back and hip injury that didn’t seem to go away. It was life changing for me, as once I started to get adjusted, not only did my hip and back pain go away, but my ear infections and recurrent colds went away as well. Not to mention I came off all antibiotics, a seizure medication and an anti-febrile medication. Since then I have been on regular chiropractic care once a week for health and wellness and not needed medications. I chose chiropractic as a career because of the miracles I saw in my life but also in the rest of my family’s life. I can remember my mother, a hair stylist suffering from back pain and being in the hospital, in traction, for weeks. It wasn’t until she started chiropractic care that she found relief. The first visit to Dr. Craig’s office, I remember my dad and my older brother carrying her in on a waiting room chair, she was in and out of consciousness because of the pain. The amazing thing is that she walked out of the chiropractor’s office after being adjusted and never ended up in the hospital for low back pain again. She is still under chiropractic care today and still is working passionately as a hair stylist. Dr. Craig Zavitz was instrumental in mentoring me to be a chiropractor. His passion and compassion to help people was contagious. I grew up spending Saturdays working around his house and in his clinic in my teenage years. The miracles I saw in his clinic of people healing and having their lives changed, inspired me to be a chiropractor. With my two hands and my knowledge of the bodies magnificent design and God given ability to heal itself, I could help many people get well and stay well naturally.
