Dr. Potter’s Journey to Chiropractic

Network Chiropractic of Somerset, P.C.In my office, most of the people that come in to see me tell me they’ve “tried everything.”

They’ve had “every” test, wound up with huge medical bills, and are still no better off.  Often, they’ve been subjected to medications that have only served to temporarily mask symptoms.  That’s not what most people are looking for.

Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections.  That’s what I’m going to tell you about.  But before I tell you more let me tell you something about me…

Over 20 yrs ago, I was on tour as a musician doing what I love and getting paid for it.  Life is good.  But then it happens…  my car was struck by a ¾ ton pick up going over 60 mph.  I sustained severe head injuries, ruptured spleen, lacerated liver, broken ribs, dislocated shoulder, but amazingly, never lost consciousness.  My health and my way of life had been taken away from me in an instant.

It was a long road back to health and I will be honest, I was scared that I would never get back to the person that I was before.  Having been an NCAA soccer player both in College and in Europe, it was devastating for me to feel so weak, vulnerable and helpless.  I felt “stuck” in my life, physically, emotionally and financially.

I began having seizures and was unable to go back to work.  The pain in my body was constant and that began to reflect in the way I was approaching my life. Time goes on and I feel no better. But, I refuse to give up and there’s more…

My Mom convinces me to give her doctor a try.  This doctor does a “different” type of work, he does an exam, a scan, then ‘adjusts’ my spine and nervous system.  He tells me that nerve pressure on various nerves are causing my back, neck, shoulder and leg pain.  The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good.  I get relief and shortly, I can bend and lift without pain again.

Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor?  Chiropractic in conjunction with Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) worked so well for me, and I was so impressed with the other miracles I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself.  And that’s how it happened!”

Chiropractic and NSA is one of the biggest “secrets” in health care.  Few people (relatively, only 10% have been to a chiropractor) know about it.  And, many of the rest could be helped, if they only knew the true story.  So, I often feel like shouting it from the mountaintop!  Is that “professional?”  Well, maybe it is or maybe not.  But I’ve decided people should know.

For the last 21 years, people from Somerset/North Brunswick and the surrounding area have come to see me with their neck, shoulder, back and leg pain.  They also come to see me with: Headaches, Migraines, Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Arm pain, Whiplash from car accidents, Numbness in limbs and Athletic injuries just to name a few…

Here’s What Some of Your Neighbors Had to Say…

“Dr. Potter came into our lives about 20 years ago and has seen us through many phases of our health issues with positive results.”

-Bill & Pat Cunningham, Commercial Realtors, ages 86,79.

“Dr. Potter has treated me when I was at my worst and at my best. I have literally changes my life, (lost over 100 lbs.) and feel that I am in the best shape of my life at 66 yrs. young!”

-Ernie Polgardy, Retired travel consultant, age 71.

“I am a twice survivor of breast cancer having gone through both chemotherapy and radiation therapy. I am a firm believer in how keeping my body balanced has helped me through many phases of my life. I have 10 children and have enjoyed all the stages of their lives. My health salvation has always been Dr. Potter and Network Chiropractic.”

– Mrs. Bobby Bulger, age 78 yrs. old.

Dr. David Potter Has been the only practitioner who has given me relief from the pain of fibromyalgia and arthritis; I am eternally grateful.

-R.S., Teacher

Dr. Potter could not have come more highly recommended.  I knew it was no accident when on my birthday I ran into my former Network Chiropractor (who had moved his office too far for me to see); he suggested I see Dr. Potter, his chiropractor.  Later in the year I had to face a very challenging course of chemotherapy and thanks to Dr. Potter’s heartfelt support; I came through feeling stronger than ever. My thanks to Dr. Potter, everything happens for a reason- there are no “chance” encounters.  – Anonymous

September will mark ten years that I have been a practice member at Network Chiropractic.  I presented with sever low back pain and after listening to a good friend for over a year tell me I should see her chiropractor, I decided to attend an orientation.  Dr. Potter’s balance approach and wellness model sounded very appealing and a lot more than just chiropractic, something I was interested in. After three months of treatment my back pain was almost completely gone, I had lost 20 lbs., and had quite a new outlook on life. This more holistic approach not only treated my symptoms but also helped me to calm my mind and lift my spirit.

The work that Dr. Potter does changes lives, gives new hope, balance and much more.  Dr. Potter lives what he teaches which makes his work inspiring. I recommend him to ALL. I want to thank him for all that he has done for my family and me.  He is not only my chiropractor, but also my teacher, mentor and friend.

-TSA, Teacher

Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. The truth is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. Of course, all people respond differently to care, but we get terrific results. It’s as simple as that!

I am honored to have been recognized by my peers over the years and have received numerous awards, including: The Excellence In Care Award (’95), Above and Beyond Award for treating first responders at Ground Zero (’01), and was One of America’s Top Chiropractors in 2004.

I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies to pro athletes that you may know. For the past 21 years, I’ve been taking care of your neighbor’s in Somerset/North Brunswick/Central Jersey.

Chiropractic and Network Spinal Analysis Inspired Me

dr potter mrs potterThroughout my entire life, I had always been interested in holistic modalities and the way your body works.  It was not until a major car wreck as a young adult that I truly understood first-hand, the transformational work of Chiropractic and Network Spinal Analysis (NSA).

While it was extremely impressive that my pain reduced and my function improved; what really blew me away was that I began to “feel” better.  Of course, if you have less pain and greater function, you would think…obviously you “feel” better.  But, I mean I “felt better” than I did BEFORE the accident.  I “felt better” than I could EVER remember feeling.  Not just physically, but, emotionally and energetically as well.

It is difficult to explain, but after approximately 3 months of Network Care (NSA) in conjunction with conservative Chiropractic care, the little things in life did not bother me.  The big things, I handled with greater ease and efficiency.  After 6 months of care, I slept better, felt much more relaxed and made better and immediate choices both in my personal and professional life.

This type of work opened up my eyes to the possibilities in my life and assisted in creating opportunities in a vast array of area, both personally and professionally.  It INSPIRED me to completely turn my life around, change careers and live a truly PURPOSEFUL life!
