Welcome to Adventures with Anne Part 5
We visited Dr. Michael Jerez Chiropractic – A Total Body Health & Wellness Center
Dr. Jerez was always attracted to exercise and working out and soon found his passion for fitness. Continuing his desire to serve people and love for his country, he enlisted in the United States Military, becoming a Navy Corpsman attached to Several Marine Corps Units with numerous deployments and a tour in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2003. After suffering several injuries, which left him with neurological deficits to his right arm, he began receiving Chiropractic and Acupuncture treatments. The relief he found with complimentary medicine gave Dr. Jerez better appreciation to the Holistic Approach in caring for patients after noticing major improvements and a decrease in his symptoms. With this new awareness, Dr. Jerez knew that he had to evolve to become more effective to service his patients. This evolution led him to begin the journey to his degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2009. Even during his studies Dr. Jerez was already working with patients, helping them with rehabilitation workout routines and weight management.
