History of Why Dr. Malooley Became a Chiropractor
At 17 years of age, Dr. Malooley was working a summer job in a gravel pit and developed an infection on his skin from an adverse reaction to the lime in the gravel. That infection infiltrated his bloodstream, settled in his spine (osteomyelitis), and nearly killed him. After months in the hospital, he survived- but the scar tissue that remained where the infection once resided left him in chronic pain for years to follow. Fed up with muscle relaxers and pain pills that only masked the problem, Dr. Malooley decided to try Chiropractic. After his first adjustment, he felt instant relief because the adjustment released the chronic fixation that remained after his spinal infection! After about a month of treatment, his symptoms resolved and his quality of life significantly improved. Needless to say, Dr. Malooley became passionate about Chiropractic and realized his purpose in life was to help others as he was helped.
