My Path to Chiropractic
After receiving my degree, I pursued a career in corporate sales. Seven years later, being on the road led to a severe low back condition with 3 bulging discs with sciatica shooting into my feet. I was on bed rest for over a month, and felt no relief from prescription pills. Frustrated and unable to move, walk – let alone live a happy life- I went to a chiropractor. While addressing other life matters and adjusting my spine, I was able to be up and walking within one week. Over two years, through a series of chiropractic adjustments, massage, and acupuncture, I was able to rehabilitate and maintain a healthy, pain-free back.

My Path to Chiropractic
When I was 18 years old, I was working a lawn maintenance job, mowing yards and doing a variety of other yard work. One day I was bushhogging an area around a pond, I didn’t see a hole and stepped in it, hurting my lower back. It hurt for days, making it impossible to do my job properly. Being 18, I thought my back would get better, luckily my parents convinced me to go to the chiropractor. Within only a few visits I was back to normal. Soon after I attended college and like most students I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, so one day I went to the career center with a friend and saw chiropractic as an option. I did more research into chiropractic and fell in love with it, I made my mind up then and haven’t looked back since.
My name is Tori and I’m a licensed massage therapist, NCLMBT #15100. I attended school at the College of Wilmington and graduated in 2015. I chose massage therapy as a career because I had received a massage therapy session when I was a young teen and loved it. From that day forward, I knew that massage therapy was the path I wanted to take. I’m excited to be able to help clients with the skills and knowledge I have acquired from continuing education courses I have taken. Some of these courses include, oncology, sports, and frozen shoulder.

I was born with Cerebral Palsy, I have had numerous surgeries. In the last three years I have had three Achilles tendon lengthening surgeries done, twice on one foot. It has taken a long time for the last one to heal and I have put on a lot of weight. I was having a hard time getting around and then I saw a sign that Dr. Brooke was back, so I gave her a call to see if she could help me.
She and I worked out a plan for me, it included detoxifying my body by taking vitamins, drinking shakes, eating healthy foods and drinking lots of water. She does chiropractic on my hips and helps loosen my tight muscles to help them work better. I have also been doing a lot of swimming and exercising, I will start therapy too. Dr. Brooke has really helped me, this is the best I have felt in a long time. If you or anyone you know is having a hard time with some of the same problems as me I would give Dr. Brooke a call so she can help you too. I am so excited that I have already lost 23 ½ pounds and I will be going there for as long as needed.
