Dr. Aaron Rice, D.C., C.A.C.C.P.
Hello! My name is Dr. Aaron R. Rice. I was born in Madison Heights, MI and raised in Hazel Park, MI. I received an excellent education from my primary schooling and had teachers that supported and encouraged me along the way. I have been a chiropractic patient since I was only a few months old. My parents after several months of their first born not eating, sleeping and constant vomiting were at their wits end. They had tried everything and had taken me to about every test possible without relief for me or them. Finally a friend recommended taking me to a chiropractor cause it had helped their children. Reluctantly they took me and it changed all of our lives. I slept for the first time in months for more than 30 minutes ……well actually closer to 10 hours. The vomiting stopped and I started to thrive. This was my beginning in the world of the natural form of healthcare called chiropractic.
In my summer going into high school I was hit by a full size conversion van, while riding my bicycle in the crosswalk. I was injured with pinched nerves in my neck and back as diagnosed by the emergency room doctors. I started freshman year in a neck brace and was miserable and in constant pain. My sports playing days were over, my friends continued to play basketball, which I loved and I sat on the sidelines. It was my chiropractor, who we finally went to that helped take the stress off my spine and get me back to being a kid. It was the second time that chiropractic had given me back a fighting chance and I knew then that I had found my calling.
My passion is to share chiropractic medicine, it has changed my life and my family’s. I appreciate the human frame and believe that we were designed to be healthy and vibrant. That self- healing and self- regulating are normal. Through the holistic approach that chiropractic takes I hope to reduce the stresses on those who I come in contact by through evidence based clinical care, specific spinal adjustments, lifestyle modification, supportive care and nutritional support. Sharing this passion is what he does best and it is easy to see the best care for you and your family is what drives Dr Aaron.
Anyone that knows these two knows that as serious and passionate as they are, they are also fun loving health orintated people!
