Why He Become a Chiropractor:

In the eighth grade, James was informed that he had scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine that can cause a multitude of problems. The curves in his spine continued to get worse over the next few years. The pain made was making it hard to focus in school and affected his ability to play in the sports he loved. Doctors were considering surgery to correct his spine, but just after graduating high school a friend referred him to a chiropractor. After the chiropractor was able to help him so much, Dr. Pietrek decided to study to become a chiropractor himself to help others get out of pain without surgery and injections.
