Dr. Tara Hogan’s Story:
As a competitive gymnast by the age of 11, Dr. Tara found herself flying through the air often but not always landing on her feet. This trend continued on throughout her life as she transitioned from gymnastics to track and field, specifically pole vaulting. In high school and college she was falling an average of 10-11 feet, and sometimes landing poorly on her head and neck. Performing as a collegiate athlete, she developed sciatica symptoms, which landed her in the athletic trainer’s office and in the ice bath most nights after practice. At the age of 22 she graduated with a Bachelors in English and chronic pain. After discovering chiropractic and maintaining care for one year, she realized that she had felt the best she had ever felt in her entire life. Athletically she was performing better in the gym and running road races faster than ever before. She believes chiropractic is responsible for the active lifestyle she has been leading many years after her college days.
Dr. Michael Hogan’s Story:
Dr. Mike grew up as a very active child involved in soccer and wrestling. In high school, he was a state ranked wrestler and can remember getting his body wrenched into many unfavorable positions which effected his health. Around this same period of time he developed a serious sinus and head pressure problem, for which he sought help from an ENT. They prescribed a nasal inhaler that helped for only short periods of time but did not fix the problem. It wasn't until he moved out west to pursue his love for snowboarding that he sought help from a chiropractor. He had taken a bad fall on the mountain and thought he should get checked. Miraculously after getting adjusted a few times for a neck problem, his sinus pressure problems stopped all together and he has never needed an inhaler since. This of course, lead him to question why and how this could even be possible, and ultimately lead him to pursue an education and career in chiropractic.
Many problems can start in early childhood and go undetected until we experience more severe problems in adulthood. Don't delay, get yourself of or a loved one checked to see if Chiropractic and help you too!
