Meet Dr. Nathaniel Reese

How Chiropractic Changed My Life

Dr. Reese adjusting a patientAs a child and adolescent, I suffered from benign hand tremors. There was no rhyme or reason behind this, but it was a debilitating and embarrassing condition to deal with. Other kids would notice my hands shaking at church, in the lunch line, in chemistry class, wherever, and of course, I found myself on the wrong end of a lot of jokes and ridicule. I was told it was just a “phase” I was going through, and maybe I would grow out of it.

It was hard for me to understand why I had this problem and no one else my age did. I didn’t find my answer until I started seeing a chiropractor.

I initially started chiropractic treatments for a hip injury I suffered playing football. The trainer had told me I was going to miss a month of playing time and would most likely finish the year playing through pain, so I called my local chiropractor to get another opinion. Needless to say, I never even missed a practice!

Then Came the True Miracle

My chiropractor was able to get rid of my awful hip pain and kept me on the field playing, but that is not the true miracle behind this story.

After about a month of care, I began noticing my hand tremors were not as frequent or severe. At first I did not think much of it, but my “shakes” continued to improve.

Initially, I never mentioned this condition to my chiropractor because I did not think anyone could help, but when I mentioned my remarkable improvements, he was not surprised. He showed me my X-rays again and explained that my atlas (the top bone of the spine) had been out of position putting massive stress on my nervous system, the result was my hand tremors. My life has never been the same since.


Chiropractic Has Chosen Me

That summer, I talked to my doctor about the possibility of myself becoming a chiropractor someday. I had experienced my own small “miracle” and had a strong feeling that chiropractic had chosen me.

So my chiropractor offered me a job to get a stronger grasp on the philosophy and the lifestyle of being a chiropractor. He wanted to make sure that chiropractic was truly meant for me.

Since then, I have never turned back. I have worked with chiropractors ever since that day, through the rest of high school, undergraduate college, and all the way through chiropractic school at Life University! Chiropractic had changed my life, and I have devoted my life to make sure I can help my community in the same way.  Now, I am privileged to work with my wife, Dr. Beth, who is also a chiropractor every day. We have a true family practice!
