We interviewed Dr. Guy Caspers and Dr. Dan Daly of Caspers Chiropractic to see what has inspired them to be chiropractors and how they stay healthy. Here is what they said about when they discovered they wanted to be a chiropractor, health advice, and how the decision to be a chiropractor has affected their health.
What is the #1 health advice that you give to your patients?
Dr. Guy: Pain is a poor yardstick to measure your health. Just because you are pain-free does not mean you are healthy. Just because you have pain does not mean you are not healthy.
Dr. Dan: Be proactive about your health, focus on staying healthy rather than waiting until a problem occurs. Health takes effort.
When did you first discover that you wanted to be a doctor?
Dr. Guy: I knew from Junior high I wanted to be a doctor. When I saw chiropractors, Dr. Linden and Dr. Sheehan, for neck pain and fever blisters around my mouth, they helped me get rid of them naturally. I knew that I was meant to be a Doctor of Chiropractic and help others relieve and prevent future pain and sickness by removing nerve system interference. It just made all the sense in the world to me.
Dr. Dan: Growing up I always had a desire to help people and then I discovered my love for biology and the body in junior high and throughout high school. I put those two things together and decided that the health care field was what I wanted to pursue in life.
What one thing can people do to feel better during the day?
Dr. Guy: Move. Motion is life and it’s absolutely true.
Dr. Dan: Besides staying active, make sure to drink plenty of water and avoid added sugar in your drinks and foods.
How has the decision to become a doctor affected your own health, and the health of those you care about most?
Dr. Guy: I have to walk the walk and talk the talk. I cannot change a person’s health unless I own good health on my body and lifestyle.
Dr. Dan: I feel that if I am giving health advice to my patients, I need to set an example of how to live healthily. When I receive advice from people who clearly are not following what they say, it is not as impactful. If I want to change the health of my community I need to set the example.
