A Bit About Me
Having been in clinical practice for over a quarter century, I have treated everything from straight forward back and neck pain to complicated disc herniations and nerve impingement injuries, from mild joint soreness and muscle stiffness to severe and debilitating pain, from work injuries to car accidents. I also have enjoyed working on sports injuries and other common problems of the foot, ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. I enjoy the challenge of complicated and difficult conditions and the outside-the-box thinking necessary to successfully treat them. Helping a person avoid surgery or injections, or helping them to reduce their dependence on medication is especially gratifying, but, from experience, I have also learned when it is necessary to refer for surgical consultation or an expert second opinion. It is humbling to consider the trust people place in my skills and experience and I take that trust seriously.
I enjoy watching my children pursue their passions of basketball and volleyball, singing and acting in chorus and theatre. I enjoy nurturing my faith and spirituality through my family’s place of worship in the neighborhood: Blessed Sacrament Parish. I enjoy hiking and backpacking and helping boys develop leadership skills through scouting. And I enjoy working with the Monroe Street Merchants Association and Dudgeon Monroe Neighborhood Association to keep our neighborhood vibrant, fun and a welcoming place to live.
Professional & Community Involvement
I also have a passion to give back to the profession that I love. I currently serve as President of the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association and as Delegate from Wisconsin to the American Chiropractic Association. My vision is a chiropractic profession fully integrated into the health care delivery system. My mission is for the citizens of Wisconsin and America to have full, equal and unencumbered access to the services of a chiropractor and for those services to be fully covered by their insurance. My reason is that people should have the ability and freedom to choose the highly effective non-drug and non-surgical care delivered by chiropractors to treat their muscle and joint problems and to empower them to enjoy a healthier lifestyle. We are currently working to pass legislation in Congress that would modernize Medicare by providing full coverage for all the services seniors receive from a chiropractor, as well as legislation, introduced by Senator Tammy Baldwin, that would provide a chiropractic benefit to retired members of the military, a benefit currently denied them. Americans who seek the services of a chiropractor should not be discriminated against when it comes to coverage and reimbursement and I am dedicated to making that day a reality.

Front office staff are very friendly. I have had lower back, hip and leg pain for more than five months. I never went to a Chiropractor before but it was Amazing! After one visit I noticed a huge difference in the pain level. Went back yesterday and this morning I feel great. I highly recommend this place!
I want to say thank you to the drs at LSM. I have never been to a chiropractor before and I was having horrible back pain. I've gone in 3 times and I am feeling 100% better! I was scared of making the pain worse at first, but the dr explained everything and helped me relax. Thank you for being so great!!
Had chronic hip pain and tried everything but replacement. A friend suggested LSM. I didn't have anything to lose, so I gave it a try. It wasn't instant relief, but after a few sessions I could feel significant improvement. I was pain free by the sixth session. I want to see what the doc can do with my shoulder. She is amazing!
Huge shoutout to the docs at LSM Chiropractic - they have helped me immensely! First they asked the right questions, answered all my questions thoroughly and offed a lot of advice in the areas of health, diet, and exercise that will benefit me. I have made it to the maintenance stage of chiropractic needs and have never felt better!!!
I have had back issues all of my life and primary doctor only offered pain pills. I found LSM and they even accepted Medicaid. I have had back,neck and upper leg issues(going numb). The doctor really helped me where I have mobility again and much less. Dr. E is wonderful and the entire staff treats you like family! Thank you!!!
