Founding story of Competitive Edge Sports and Spine
Competitive Edge Sports and Spine established in 2007 when hope seemed impossible to grasp. Imagine training for half a year for 2-3 days a week in Chicago suburbs for something and a week away from the dream having it stripped away in a situation you had no control over. A high school dream turned into a nightmare in a fraction of a second. One single injury had changed the hopes of having a break out senior season to just being able to play a quarter of your first game. This is when chiropractic chose Doc J. A high school injury turned him to chiropractic, which in returned got him on the field faster allowing him to be able to continue a dream. A path of fate drew him from the field of football to the field of chiropractic.This is how he met a chiropractor in the suburbs of Chicago, this drew him into a new found passion of health care. Chiropractic Therapy had gotten Doc J on the field when all other doctor’s said it wasn’t possible. Doc J was born and raised in Michiana. He is bringing back something to this area that wasn’t here when he needed it most. He chose Michiana because he loves this area and knew it needed someone. His passion in sports and his success in sports enables him to relate to an athletes everyday struggles, without the burden of injuries. He relates to athletes because he was one. Doc J understands a mind set of a champion being a state champion and national champion in both high school and college football. To understand an athlete you must be an athlete. It was in chirpractic school at National University of Health Sciences where he had met his fiance, Katie. Together they decide to bring back their services and continue the dream of Competitive Edge Sports and Spine.
