A regional man changed his career from chemistry to chiropractic after having a life-changing change.
Chris Rynd graduated from Coffee County Central High School prior to attending Tennessee Tech University where he earned a degree in Chemistry. Throughout his time at TTU Rynd had the ability to get a grant to conduct field research study on shamanic medication in Peru for 4 months, studying a plant called Cat's Claw.
Rynd finished in 2012 and started a profession at Vi-Jon in Smyrna. He operated in the research and development department for about 5 years where he helped developed solutions and quality scalability for a variety of items consisting of aerosol sprays, hand sanitizers, laundry and dish detergents and so on.
He was about 2 years into his profession when he began returning to the gym to be active once again as he started to get sick every when in a while.
“I grew up skateboarding and used to compete a lot so I was quite active,” Rynd stated.
Rynd said he was doing cross hatches in the fitness center when he got injured.
“I heard a pop and it actually dropped me to my knees,” Rynd stated.
Soon later on Rynd was experiencing one-sided headaches and was removing of one eye for 18 days straight while experiencing “10 out of 10” discomfort.
Rynd stated he went to his primary care to be informed he was looking at spinal surgical treatment on his C1/C2 vertebrae, which is based around the skull and the brain stem. Rynd wasn't pleased with the idea of getting surgery on his spine while he was 26.
“That was a little earth shaking and I was probably a little young to be cut on with spine surgical treatment.”
Rynd said he pressed away from the concept of surgical treatment and relied on muscle relaxers and discomfort medicine however nothing was working. He stated he missed a lot work he was losing money so he finally looked for a chiropractic physician and stated after one change he was all better.
“All my signs went away, no removing of one eye or my '10 out of 10′ discomfort,” Rynd stated. “It literally saved me from surgery.”
Rynd mentioned, with routine chiropractic care, he hasn't been ill in over 5 years because his very first modification.
With the life altering modification, Rynd reached out to his pal Dr. Rick Longie and informed him he was thinking of changing careers and going to chiropractic school. He said Dr. Longie connected to the president of Sherman College of Chiropractic to talk to Rynd and to have him visit the school.
Rynd said he spent the next three years conserving up his money while continuing to work for Vi-Jon. After saving up adequate money to pay tuition, he participated in Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida in 2017 and graduated this year.
He said while in school he was surprised to learn how a little modification can help someone with chronic pain exceptionally.
“I did not anticipate the human mind to understand the human body,” Rynd said. “I never ever understood so much things played a vital function to the nerve system, where any small changes can make a big difference to the entire body.”
Rynd worked for a chiropractic workplace in Murfreesboro prior to receiving his license in March. Regrettably, due to the COVID-19 pandemic his graduation ceremony was cancelled. He did get his diploma in addition to his cap and gown prior to being able to go house.
Rynd now operates at Family Chiropractic Complex in Tullahoma and stated they've been following standards and security procedures like other medical workplaces. Rynd stated organisation is back to regular but he was worried in the start, particularly for other small companies that don't have the very same resources as corporations.
“That's what I like about small businesses cause that's part of a neighborhood and not a corporation that thinks individuals are vital. People appreciate that here more than in the larger cities,” Rynd stated.
Rynd said he's seen patients get better after they've concerned see him and encourages anybody suffering from chronic pain to see them as it helped him out.
“It's fantastic how it altered my life and I wish to give people hope that they do not need to live in persistent pain all the time or take a tablet all the time for persistent pain,” Rynd said.
