Journey of Becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic

eric-and-dad-athletes-corner“My name is Eric Shull and I am a senior at Milligan College where I have been studying Biology/Pre-Med and running cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track. I have enjoyed success in my long distance running career at Franklin County High School and Milligan College. So far I am the only male to ever qualify for state in cross country at FCHS. My collegiate career consists of being a part of two NAIA cross country national qualifying teams. In my younger years I was part of a USATF 4×100 national qualifying team called the Tennessee Cheetahs. I have been receiving chiropractic care from my dad, Dr. Kurt Shull, ever since I was born. I am convinced that the chiropractic care and healthy lifestyle from a young age is one of the key reasons I have been able to run at a relatively high level for almost ten years with minimal injuries. My Dad and the health benefits of chiropractic has inspired me to follow in his footsteps and pursue a career in chiropractic. I have been accepted to Life University in Marietta, Ga where I will begin my journey of becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.” Eric S.

I play basketball for Grundy County High School. This year I will be a junior and will be on the varsity team. I hurt my mid-back playing football my 7th grade year and it has caused me problems since then. I had physical therapy for 12 weeks and it was still causing me trouble. When I tried to lift or play, sometimes it would be painful. Since coming to Dr. Shull it has been happening less often and I hurt less.

I had intense therapy several times a week including dry needling, ultrasound and manipulation. I also run track and placed in the State of Tennessee and Alabama. I will continue my care with Dr. Shull to ensure that I will be my best.

nathan-baker“My name is Nathan Baker and I run track and cross country for Milligan College in Tennessee. I have been seeing Dr. Shull for the past year and a half now since I moved here from my hometown of Middlesbrough, England. I have been having problems with my upper back from sitting at a desk all day and training regularly. Treatment from Dr. Shull has relieved my symptoms and I now visit regularly as a preventative measure. Ever since visiting Dr. Shull, my running has reached a new level. This includes winning the NAIA 3000 meter Indoor National Championship as a freshman and running 14:58 minutes for a 5K. Thank you so much Dr. Shull for relieving me of my symptoms and for bringing my running career to new heights.” Nathan B.


ashtyn-2019“My name is Ashtyn Danley and I play travel softball and middle school basketball. Needless to say I have a very busy schedule with sports and school. Among my achievements include winning 10 & under and 12 & under PGF Nationals. I have also verbally committed to Florida State University for a softball scholarship. I sought chiropractic treatment with Dr. Shull for leg, ankle, and knee problems. I had issues with these problems for about 5 months. Things that I had tried in the past for relief included cryotherapy and I took time off from both sports for a month. Since getting treatment at Shull Chiropractic Clinic, I have been able to compete with minimal pain. I was playing with pain before. Dr. Shull did dry needling and ultrasound which loosened soft tissue that was knotted. The swelling and level of pain has decreased. Since I plan on playing softball and basketball for many more years in high school and softball in college, I feel that the natural approach with chiropractic care, dry needling, ultrasound, etc. will keep me on the playing field with little down time. I want to continue with non-drug treatments to stay healthy.” Ashtyn D. Brandi D., Mom
