attending college at the University of Pittsburgh Dr Tsai
seriously injured his low back by herniating two discs.
"I was a competitive bodybuilder at the time and was
working loading planes and trucks at the airport. I picked
up a heavy box being shipped to Vatican City of all places,
twisted to throw it in the truck and heard my back pop.
It was all downhill from there. For 8 months I laid around
with some of the most intense pain I'd ever had in my life.
My body weight dropped from 240 pounds to 170. My left leg
was constantly on fire. It was also very weak and the muscle
began to atrophy.
worst was yet to come. The nerves that I was damaging in
my lower back not only control the muscles in the back and
legs, but also the organs. At twentytwo years old I began
to lose bladder control! Having visions of graduating the
University of Pittsburgh as a Medical Doctor, all through
this ordeal I of course sought the best medical attention
that I could find. For that long eight months I was given
pain pills, muscle relaxants, physical therapy, M.R.I.,
piles of x-rays and no relief.
my wits end I finally saw a Chiropractor and he changed
just a few adjustments I began to have some relief...don't
get me wrong it was a long road back to getting healthy
but after a whole year constant pain I began to have hope!
was nothing short of miraculous!" In the midst of his
healing, Dr Tsai returned to college with a passion and
changed his major toward Doctor of Chiropractic!
