Doc's Story

Why “Doc” Became A Chiropractor

We asked Doc Bjork why he decided to go to school to become a chiropractor. He then told this story – with a tear in his eye. It touched our hearts and we thought you might enjoy it too.

“All was well until I got to be three or four years old and started getting earaches that got worse and worse. My mom and grandma had to put cotton in my ears to keep the wind out. It got so bad that they wouldn’t let me out if there was any wind — and you know how many days aren’t windy in Sioux City.

This went on for what seemed like forever to a little guy who just wanted to go outside and play.

I was six years old and my grandpa was at the chiropractor and he asked him, ‘What do you do for a kid who has earaches all the time?’ He said, ‘You get him in here and we’ll find out what’s causing the earaches and then fix it.’ So he x-rayed my neck and saw that it was way out of alignment! He adjusted my neck, the earaches left and just like that, I was out of jail!

He was my hero — and right then I realized I wanted to do the same for people too. And as they say — the rest is HIStory!”

My husband and I have been coming to Dr. Bjork for over 25 years now. Although the original reason we came in to see him has now healed (we were in a bad car accident), it’s always great to get a monthly tune-up to stay healthy!
