Meet Dr. David Adich

Adjusting man's backUnsure of what he wanted to do after college, Dr. Adich accompanied his father (who was a chiropractor) to an appointment with his dad’s chiropractor.

I met him and saw how his patients loved him. I loved watching what he did and his interactions with people, and how he got to know them more than a family doctor does with a single annual visit.”

Dr. Adich knew then that being a chiropractor would match his personality well. Plus, he was always fascinated by the body and enjoyed athletics, so he decided to go to chiropractic college. He looked forward to learning about chiropractic and putting that into practice to help people.
