Chiropractor Otto Janke D.C.

I may not have ever told you the reason of WHY I became a Doctor of Chiropractic. There is no time like today. So here we go.

Have you ever had at time in your life when deep in your bones you felt that you had something bigger and better to do?

Ever had that time when you knew that what you were doing was not nearly reaching your best? I had that while living in Las Vegas in the mid 80’s. While I had worked my way up a short ladder at a car rental company in Las Vegas, and even having a new franchise offered to me, I just knew this was not my destiny.

It has been known to get a little warm in Las Vegas. Since my roommate and I could not afford to run the A/C all day, I would go to the library where it was always cool. I could read anything I wanted for free, get comfortable, and even get in a little cat nap. A bit of heaven. It was during this time that my brother Kirby, who was a physical therapist at the time (he went on to become a Chiropractor also, he practices in Skaneateles) told me I should be a Chiropractor. To be honest, I had never even heard of Chiropractic. But I kept that in my mind and the next time I went to the library I looked up what Chiropractic was.

Have you ever had one of those moments in life that change your life? One was about to happen to me. I looked through a book to find out what Chiropractic was. I found a page while skimming through a large book and the next lines hit me like a brick. “We are the most over medicated country in the world, and we have the most surgeries of any country in the world, yet we are not the healthiest.” I was stunned! Some one else felt the same way I did!!!! I had felt that way since my teenage years. “Everything we have ever needed to be our healthiest is already within us, we just need to unlock it.” I had known this to my core. THIS WAS EXACTLY HOW I FELT!! It was the page for Palmer College of Chiropractic. It was at THAT moment I knew that I was a Doctor of Chiropractic! The schooling and studying was just a formality for me at that time.

We don’t need more medications to be healthier. We need more health. You and I were born with EVERYTHING we have ever needed to be our healthiest, we just need to unlock it and let it rock. I bet you agree with this. THIS IS WHAT CHIROPRACTIC STANDS FOR. Allow your natural, inborne health to be at its’ optimum for life. Unlock the system that is the master control system – the nervous system. You already agree with Chiropractic. You just didn’t know it was Chiropractic. It is not just the elimination of pain or symptoms that will help us be healthier, it is helping your body to overcome anything that stops it from being at its’ best that will help you to be your healthiest. I am sure you agree with that also. You had no idea that these are the same principles that Chiropractic is built on. I have spent the last 22 years learning more and more about Chiropractic and how I can help you to be your healthiest. Please share this with your friends, family and co-workers.
