Dr. Bishop's chiropractic story began before he was even born. For 10 years his parents tried to have a child and were unsuccessful. But soon after his mother received a pelvic adjustment, they finally received the news that they had been longing to hear for years. The news that his mother was indeed pregnant. Dr. Bishop received his first adjustment just days after he was born. He has been a life-long patient of chiropractic care and now is offering the same care to patients that he has been receiving his entire life.
