God has designed our bodies to be in alignment. Accidents and injuries tear loose the tissue that holds the spine in place, which creates a weakness and allows our spine to break down and lock into a stressed position.

A misaligned spine is a progressive condition that breaks down the structure and tissues of our bodies and disrupts the communication between the brain and the body. This disrupted communication leads to poor health.

As a steward of God’s gift, my body, it is my responsibility to take good care of it. As a child I took a number of falls that severely misaligned my head and neck and led to compensating misalignments in my lower back and pelvis.

In my early 20’s I was working at UPS and doing landscaping and I began to develop lower back pain. That was the first time I ever saw a Chiropractor. My lower back improved and soon my girlfriend at the time (later became my wife) began to develop severe breathing problems and pain in her upper back.

Eventually, I convinced Julie to see the doctor as well. Her breathing and pain remarkably improved. After our experiences and my personal relationship with the doctor, I started talking with him about becoming a chiropractor, and eventually that’s what I did!

Julie and I got married and we moved to California so I could go to chiropractic school. While in school I did very well and graduated near the top of my class, but after graduation when I began working as an associate doctor in a general chiropractic setting, I began to become frustrated by the fact that people needed to be manipulated all the time.

I knew God created our bodies better than that!

I began to look into other chiropractic approaches that could give my family and my community longer lasting results.

And that’s when God led me to NUCCA!

The NUCCA System allowed the doctor to make a more dramatic and longer lasting impact on the body. After becoming a NUCCA patient myself and getting my wife and kids under care, I began to realize that this is the ultimate way to keep the spine in alignment and the brain and the body working optimally for a lifetime!

So I began the long and tedious journey to become a NUCCA doctor and opened my own NUCCA office in 2008.

So my family and I will always be NUCCA patients. I will keep my spine in alignment until I go to Heaven to be with Jesus!

Here in Southern California, surfing is a very popular activity. Surfing is great exercise and a lot of fun for millions of Americans but it can really do a number on your spine. One of the most troubling parts of surfing is the fact that you have to keep your neck in extension as you lay on the board to paddle out.  As mentioned before on this blog the most vulnerable positions for your neck to be in are all the way back in extension and all the way to the side in lateral bending.  Most surfers that I see are severely misaligned due to falls or other non-surfing related injuries.  Once that spine is misaligned…putting it into that extreme extension position on a regular basis will lead to increased Degenerative Disc Disease and eventually symptoms.  Some of the most common symptoms surfers experience is back and neck pain, numbness and tingling into the arms and legs and other related symptoms.

There is hope for those that want to surf throughout their lives…the key is alignment.  If the spine is misaligned the degeneration will occur at an increased frequency and quality of life will decrease.  The problems will typically begin in the neck and then translate through the spine until the condition is corrected.  If the spinal problems are corrected and the alignment is maintained throughout life, most people will be able to surf as long as they want to. 

Here is an example of a man whose ability to do one of his favorite activities was greatly affected until he got the problems in his spine corrected.

“When I first came to see Dr. Davis I was having severe lower back pain and it was greatly diminishing my quality of life. I had struggled with it for over 15 years but it had really gotten a lot worse in the past 2 years. Both at work where I have to stand for long periods and when I went surfing which I love to do.

Since beginning care my back pain has subsided enough to not impact anything that I do in life negatively. I can surf without any pain! I can stand for hours without pain at work. Surfing without back pain is a huge blessing!

I was a huge skeptic when I came to Breath of Life, but I figured I had nothing to lose. I gave it a year and I am so glad that I did. I feel so much better than I did a year ago! And I really enjoy knowing that Dr. Davis and I both worship the same awesome God!”
