Fenton Chiropractor Dr. Richard Stork

As a child, I had poor health

I suffered from continuous sinus infections, headaches, frequent nose bleeds, and more bouts of tonsillitis than I care to remember. Because I could not handle being out in the heat and humidity, my memories of Michigan summers consist not of days spent playing outside but hours in the cool shelter of the basement. These problems followed me into adulthood. I wish my parents had known then what I now know.

As a young adult, I worked third shift for a local grocery store

It was during this time that I developed excruciating pain in my right hip. It would strike like lightning, cause my leg to buckle, and send me falling to the floor. I developed a habit of standing with my weight shifted to my left. I found myself walking from object to object as I crossed a room just so I would have something to catch myself with if the pain would happen to strike. Only after countless suggestions from my brother did I seek chiropractic care.

I have seen some pretty miraculous things happen as a chiropractor

I would love to tell you that the relief I experienced from chiropractic care was immediate, but it was not. It had taken years of neglect and abuse for my body to get into that condition. Likewise, it took time for my body to heal. However, within 90 days the pain in my hip was 99.5% resolved and was recurrent only when I allowed myself to get extremely fatigued. The real surprise was the relief I experienced from the other problems I had had since childhood. This is why I decided to become a chiropractor myself.

Chiropractic Education

I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. I chose Palmer not only for its prestige and standing in the chiropractic community, but also because my brother was a graduate. As a student I learned many different adjusting techniques. While each has value in helping people get well, I was most influenced by a specific and low impact technique commonly known as NUCCA. I decided to specialize in this technique, and it is the one I use in my practice.
