A local guy changed his career from chemistry to chiropractic after having a life-altering adjustment.
Chris Rynd finished from Coffee County Central High School prior to going to Tennessee Tech University where he earned a degree in Chemistry. During his time at TTU Rynd was able to get a grant to carry out field research on shamanic medicine in Peru for 4 months, studying a plant called Cat's Claw.
Rynd finished in 2012 and started a career at Vi-Jon in Smyrna. He operated in the research and development department for about five years where he helped established formulas and quality scalability for a variety of items consisting of aerosol sprays, hand sanitizers, laundry and meal detergents and so on.
He was about 2 years into his profession when he started going back to the health club to be active once again as he started to get ill every as soon as in a while.
“I grew up skateboarding and utilized to contend a lot so I was pretty active,” Rynd said.
Rynd said he was doing cross hatches in the health club when he got injured.
“I heard a pop and it actually dropped me to my knees,” Rynd stated.
Soon afterwards Rynd was experiencing one-sided headaches and was tearing out of one eye for 18 days directly while experiencing “10 out of 10” discomfort.
Rynd said he went to his medical care to be told he was taking a look at spinal surgery 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 spinal surgical treatment.”
Rynd stated he pushed far from the concept of surgery and count on muscle relaxers and pain medication but nothing was working. He said he missed out on a lot work he was losing money so he finally sought out a chiropractic practitioner and said after one adjustment he was all better.
“All my signs went away, no removing of one eye or my '10 out of 10′ discomfort,” Rynd said. “It actually conserved me from surgical treatment.”
Rynd specified, with routine chiropractic care, he hasn't been ill in over five years considering that his first adjustment.
With the life changing modification, Rynd connected to his good friend Dr. Rick Longie and told him he was considering altering professions and going to chiropractic school. He said Dr. Longie connected to the president of Sherman College of Chiropractic to talk with Rynd and to have him check out the school.
Rynd stated he invested the next three years saving up his cash while continuing to work for Vi-Jon. After conserving up enough cash to pay tuition, he went to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida in 2017 and graduated this year.
He stated while in school he was surprised to learn how a small modification can assist someone with persistent discomfort exceptionally.
“I did not anticipate the human mind to understand the body,” Rynd stated. “I never knew a lot things played an essential role to the nervous system, where any little changes can make a big difference to the whole 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 event was cancelled. He did get his diploma together with his cap and gown prior to being able to go home.
Rynd now works at Family Chiropractic Complex in Tullahoma and stated they've been following guidelines and safety treatments like other medical offices. Rynd stated company is back to normal but he was worried in the beginning, specifically for other small businesses that do not have the exact same resources as corporations.
“That's what I like about small companies trigger that's part of a community and not a corporation that believes people are vital. People respect that here more than in the larger cities,” Rynd said.
Rynd stated he's seen patients improve after they've come to see him and motivates anybody suffering from chronic pain to see them as it assisted him out.
“It's incredible how it altered my life and I wish to offer individuals hope that they don't have to live in chronic pain all the time or take a tablet all the time for persistent pain,” Rynd said.
