Book by Dr. Jerry Dreessen of Back to Action Chiropractic

He was born in Davenport, Iowa, where his dad and his uncle were finishing chiropractic college at Palmer. He watched with amazement the great work his dad would do with patients at their house until his dad established a practice in Lynnwood. People would come to his dad in pain, frustrated that no one had been able to help them, often coming with some skepticism and as a last resort. As Jerry watched people getting better and walking away pain free, often after just one or two adjustments, he realized that this was "his calling" too.

Dr. Dreessen's commitment to Chiropractic was strengthened by his own experiences with pain. As a senior at Lynnwood High School, a football injury left him with a debilitating headache, blurry vision and fatigue. After a cervical manipulation from his father, his foggy demeanor immediately disappeared. This firsthand experience helped confirm his desire to become a chiropractic physician.
