You don’t pick chiropractic, chiropractic picks you. Chiropractic medicine needed Dr. Christian Carroll, and the divine hand guided Christian down the right path.

Christian’s journey towards health and the practice of chiropractic medicine started at a young age – and was strongly influenced by his mother.

In 4th grade I had daily stomach pains. My mom took me to the pediatrician repeatedly, but they kept reporting I was fine. My mom didn’t like this. She took it into her own hands and asked me what I ate for school lunch. I replied, “Cheeseburger almost every day.” She suggested I try just a plain hamburger next time. My mom, ahead of her time, had figured out I was lactose intolerant.Thank God for moms who don’t listen to the doctor when their kids don’t feel well!

Christian learned that he was lactose intolerant – but he understood the deeper lesson: food can hurt or heal the body.

As a young athlete, Christian dislocated and fractured his shoulder – and was introduced to the power of physical therapy and rehabilitation exercises. Christian also suffered the consequences of his playing style on the high school hockey team. One check too many led to a severe lower back injury that rehabilitation exercises could not touch. Christian’s mother again stepped in – this time to suggest that Christian visit her chiropractor.

I learned about the spine and misalignments and how those can interfere with our body’s innate ability to heal. After being adjusted for just a few visits, I was back on the ice – skating without pain! Thanks mom for my first foray into how chiropractic and spinal alignment can help heal the body!

Christian struggled with acne and fought Lyme disease in college. He continued to explore the idea of using food to treat himself according to Hippocrates’ teaching: “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine thy food.”

It became clear to Christian that chiropractic was calling him, and he answered. “By the time I got into chiropractic school, I was ready to become the doctor that didn’t treat the easy cases but rather the people that really needed help.”
