Dr. Hayes first became interested in becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic when he was twelve years old. He had injured his head and neck falling off a roof. After a week long stay in the hospital, Dr. Hayes continued having headaches even months after his injury. Medical doctors could not find any other abnormalities with him and stated to take over the counter medications for his headaches and neck pain. His mother, who at the time had been a chiropractic patient already, decided to bring him to her doctor.
Dr. Hayes first experience with chiropractic care left an unbelievable impression in his mind. After a course of care he felt so much better that he thought he would like to help people in pain as well. Having had neck pain and headaches, he knew there were other people that could be helped. He never lost site of wanting to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.
To this day he always says that he was actually fortunate that he injured his neck at such a young age because it gave him his introduction to the benefits of chiropractic care.
