Dr. Freddie Ulan Celebrates 50 Years as a Chiropractor

As I look back over my 50 years since graduation from chiropractic college, and the 70 years since I had my first adjustment, it is easy for me to see that our profession has gone through several evolutionary changes. My first chiropractors saw themselves as whole-body healers with practices that routinely achieved miracles of healing, especially in a wide variety of medical incurable conditions.

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck that is responsible for producing some very important hormones. These hormones communicate with every cell in the body, determining the function of basic bodily systems. When something goes wrong with the thyroid, the consequences can reverberate throughout the body and cause a wide variety of uncomfortable symptoms.

You Can Do More for Patients than Manage Pain

I’m not a pain-based practitioner anymore. I’m a health-based practitioner. I didn’t go into chiropractic to handle sciatica and hot disks, or to relieve a migraine headache. Yes, I was glad to be able to help those people, but my purpose was to increase the overall quality of their health and their lives.
