About Dr. Mark

Dr. Mark, as most of his patients call him, began his chiropractic experience from the encouragement of his younger brother, who knew he wanted to be a chiropractor at a young age. Dr. Mark went to undergraduate school in Business Administration then worked 5 years in management with JCPenney. During this time his brother’s enthusiasm for chiropractic swayed him to go to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa.

After graduation he worked in the Midwest with another chiropractor before going back to Palmer to teach diagnosis and work with students in the clinic.

In 2002, while vacationing in Colorado, he had a freak accident where he fell 30 feet. This accident damaged both shoulders, punctured his right arm, caused five compression fractures in the thoracic spine, and multiple rib fractures. Now the manual adjustment that helped so many people was excruciatingly painful for him. But he knew chiropractic had an answer somewhere in which he could be treated with much less discomfort or no discomfort at all, and still provide the benefits of chiropractic., so he continued his quest for such treatment and found Koren Specific Technique (KST).

After being treated a couple times at a KST seminar he felt better than he had since his accident. This technique was not only gentle on the body but, amazingly effective because of its diagnostic/preadjusting questioning. Instead of the doctor determining what to adjust, you utilize a form of muscle testing, which allows you ask questions to the patient’s body. Along with this unique analysis we learned the importance of the cranial bones, especially their connection to the emotional part of physical pain. This was a huge discovery, the affect that emotions have on releasing your physical pain. Especially when the pain began with an injury.

Due to his own serious injuries, Dr. Mark understands those that don’t want manual adjustments because they can hurt. With the Koren Specific Technique and adjusting instrument whether you have a fear of getting your neck adjusted, had a surgery and you think that you can’t be adjusted or have a baby that needs adjusting, everyone can be comfortably and effectively adjusted.

Dr. Mark, because of his own pain, learned how certain foods if in the diet create an increase in the sensitivity of the neurotransmitters, thus create an increase in the pain level. By learning these things and taking those offending substances out of his diet, he was able to reduce his pain level quicker.
