Hi! I’m Dr. Dan Foss. I’m a chiropractor in San Antonio, Texas.
As a child I suffered from a condition called torticollis. I was in 3rd grade and bent down to pick up a pencil and my neck got stuck to one side. My teacher at the time sent me to the school nurse and then the school nurse sent for my mom who then took me to our family medical doctor. The family doctor took one look at my neck. Not even feeling it and told my mom this kid needs “valium” and “vicodin” or pain killers and muscle relaxants.
My mom, who did not believe or approve of such strong medicine, much less for a 3rd grader, decided to walk out of the medical office and across the street to a chiropractor. It was the first time anyone in our family had seen a chiropractor. After a complete and thorough examination the chiropractor touched my neck and said “we found the problem.” He laid me down on the table and I felt a painless “snap and pop” and my neck straightened out.
From that day forward I wanted to study everything I could about Chiropractic
