Dr Andrew Huston’s journey in chiropractic started when he injured his back as a collegiate track athlete Louisiana State University. Treated for the wrong diagnosis for over a month by the athletic training staff, he was referred to the team chiropractor, Dr Corbin, who was able to accurately diagnose and treat the root cause of Dr Huston’s pain and he returned to running about a month later.
