Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

It’s time I opened up about it. Because when I dig deep, I realize that this is why I want to help people find their path to better, long lasting health. When I was a kid, I was the sick. I was in and out of the hospital, they did tests, biopsies, surgeries. They did all the β€œright” things to find out what was wrong and what do about it. They determined that it was a lung infection. In the end, they explained that there was nothing they could do about it. It would have to run its course.
In order for that to happen, I had to radically alter my life. Playing outside was limited, activities restricted.
I am thankful for all of the doctors and nurses who helped me, they were amazing.
Later, I suffered from, what we called being β€œdouble jointed”. My knees would pop and hurt, my shoulders would pull out of place. I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. A genetic connective tissue disorder. It lets your joints slip out of place. Again, activities were restricted, no gym class, no sports because it would make it worse.
In college, I was walking across campus and felt my pelvis shift. The pain was severe, and it lasted for days. Just moving was painful, walking across campus was nearly impossible. I remember sitting on my kitchen floor. Trying to sit in a way that would give some relief. I could’t sleep, couldn’t concentrate, but life had to go on.
I knew β€œabout” chiropractic. My parents had gone to a chiropractor. I had never been. I was a pre-med student at the time. That eventually lead me to look into what chiropractors do.
I was like a lot of other people, I thought that chiropractors just β€œpopped” things. When I was hurting, that sounded like it could make it worse. I talked with friends who had mixed stories. Some loved their chiropractor and what they did. A few were afraid, but had very limited personal experience.
I drove 3 hours to see the chiropractor my parents saw and I got my first adjustment. He explained in detail how the adjustment effects the nervous system and how the nervous system connects everything in your body.
I changed my plans from becoming a Medical Doctor to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.
After 9 years of college, I graduated from Chiropractic College and opened Lowe Chiropractic & Wellness in Louisville, Kentucky.
Over time, I got more adjustments. I started working out, ran several races, including two full marathons. I did martial arts and still do Jiu Jitsu and Crossfit. I went to Philmont with my son and did another 30 mile backpacking trip with our Boy Scouts.
I am grateful for the person who guided me to chiropractic care. I want you to have the same opportunity as I had.
I can’t imagine where I would be today without it.
We know that neck pain, back pain, headaches and sciatica are your body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. Left untreated, these problems can lead to chronic and severe pain.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

We recently had a young man who came in unable to walk. He had been in a car accident 9 months before he came in. He couldn’t stand straight, He measured 5 ft 4 inches on his first visit. He couldn’t sit in a comfortably, the pain would shoot down the front of his legs. He could not drive or walk without a cane. He had been to other doctors, had MRI’s. He had been to other chiropractors. His brother referred him to our office. We did and exam, and made a plan and showed him the high tech chiropractic care that we offer in our office. He trusted us with his care. We used Non-surgical spinal decompression, laser therapy and chiropractic adjustments. He was soon able to drive again. Over the next 4 months, he began to lay flat on the table. He was able to sit comfortably, we was able to walk without a cane. At the end of 4 months, he stood beside me at over 6 ft tall. music.

None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

We provide 500 bicycle helmets to 500 Kids each year as part of our Brain Injury Awareness program. Our goal is to raise awareness of brain injuries and provide a means for kids to prevent them. We see a lot of injuries from, falls, car accidents and bicycle accidents. The most life changing injuries are seen when there is a brain injury. We want to help prevent that.

We also support Chiropractic Students and interns through our mentoring programs at Life University and Palmer University. Dr Lowe is extension faculty at Life University.

Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

I have worked, first to be someone that other people would benefit from being around. Then I make sure to schedule time around people who inspire me, encourage me and hold me accountable.
