Meet Dr. R’Kione Britton
Getting Help from the Stars
“My dad was an emergency room doctor who always made me feel so safe and taken care of. I started college as a pre-med major, thinking I’d follow in his footsteps. That was the case until I was hit by a Ford F-150 that ran a red light; all my plans changed.
The medical doctors told me I’d need hip and knee surgery. The idea of all these pins and hardware in me was frightening. My roommate at the time was a dancer for Madonna and Pink. She kept a chiropractor on call to keep herself in the best physical shape, and arranged for me to see him.”
A Natural Alternative to Surgeries
“The chiropractor I went to see did functional neurology and orthopedics. I thought they just cracked backs, and didn’t realize they were about promoting health and wellness! After two months, I was moving around just fine. My chiropractic care was complemented by nutrition and rehabilitation exercises.”
Suddenly, I didn’t need those surgeries the medical doctors recommended.
Treating the Source of the Problem
Dr. Britton had racked up $250,000 in medical bills from his accident. After almost eight months of chiropractic care, the bill for it was only $10,000. He realized that he’d found the secret to changing how humanity lives. Instead of accumulating bills to pay for diseases like diabetes and cancer, it costs far less to go to a functional health professional that can keep you in great shape.
This prevention is far less expensive than the skyrocketing healthcare costs our country faces today! Speak with us today to discuss how we can help you.
Attending Chiropractic School
Dr. Britton knew he had to become a chiropractor to try and change the way that people thought about healthcare. During his undergraduate education at Toledo, he was named a National Achievement Scholar and was awarded a scholarship.
Dr. Britton then attended Life Chiropractic College West in the San Francisco Bay Area. While there, he was elected to serve two terms as president and was in the Student American Chiropractic Association (SACA).
Leaving a Lasting Impression
At Life West, Dr. Britton also began a group called Dr. Strange involving other students who were interested in following the neuroscience program. He created the Chiropractic Health Outreach Program to help people in the community learn more about chiropractic and preventative health measures. His organization volunteered at the local Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
Dr. Britton had the honor of being selected to the Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges during his time at chiropractic college.
Continuing to Learn
Dr. Britton is currently studying for his master’s in neuroscience to become a functional neuro-kinesiologist through the Carrick Institute. He has already completed over 500 post graduate hours in neuroscience.
