To be quite honest I don’t know where I would be if I didn’t have chiropractic in my life. In 2009, I had a huge near death experience. I had a severe allergic reaction to a medication that was given to me which placed me in a coma for over two weeks. Doctors were baffled by what happened to me and did not give my family and friends much hope for me to live. Thankfully God did wake me up but with that came challenges. I was in a position where I had no balance or coordination, I wasn’t able to walk on my own, my short term memory was affected, I had trouble with my speech, tingling and numbness in my hands and last but not least complications with my vision. From here my new home became Health South Rehabilitation Center. I would be here for another 2 weeks to work on these handicaps I developed. All the things that we can easily take for granted, were taken away from me! I was 26 years old at the time and I literally had to learn how to live again! As soon as I got out of rehab, I began to receive regular chiropractic adjustments and with just one adjustment the tingling and numbness in my hands subsided! Continuing with these adjustments gave me back my speech, vision, balance and coordination and my memory was restored. After my Doctors told me I would never be able to practice as a Chiropractor again nor would I fully recover I found myself running in the foothills of Albuquerque in less than a month and I started practicing within two months after being released from rehab.
Chiropractic works and you can rest assured because it gave me my life back, allowing my God given Innate Intelligence to work optimally by removing the nerve interference in my body! This developed my passion for Chiropractic even more so.
Chiropractic care not only helps with all the symptoms that I had but it helps with so much more, it has no boundaries. Chiropractic is designed to work with your body. The adjustments remove any interference to your Central Nervous System that can alter your body’s ability to heal from the inside out. With a strong sense of faith in God and chiropractic, I will give patients hope, from hope we have happiness, and through happiness we have wellness, which is a way of life we should all have and live.
Surrounding yourself with individuals who have the same mission when it comes to optimal health makes the journey that much more enjoyable. I have a beautiful wife that has worked her way through nursing school and shares the same drive as me! We have been a part of each other’s lives for over 15 years and we plan on being instruments of God’s healing power! Together we are fortunate to serve the Albuquerque community of all ages helping them reach their full health potential! I am a member of FCCI (Fellowship of Companies for Christ), currently serve on the Board of Directors for the American Heart Association, and have been voted Top Chiropractor in Albuquerque The Magazine’s Best of the City. I am also co-author to my book called “The Chiropractic Code”. I would love to be your Chiropractor and my wife and I would love to be a part of your health team!
Adrian Velasquez, D.C.
My biggest passion in life is to help others. Before joining Adrian here in the office I worked at Lovelace Westside Hospital for 6 years! Throughout the years Adrian and I have been together I’ve always had an appreciation and unconditional love for Chiropractic. I’ve always said that I owe my life to Chiropractic; my life just wouldn’t be the same without this type of health care. Why you might ask? Well, this type of care is what helped save my husband’s life! Knowing that with the regular chiropractic care Adrian received is what allowed him to have a life of serving and helping others! I’ve seen miraculous changes not only with my husband, but I’ve been able to witness countless patients’ regain their lives back with regular chiropractic care! This is one of the reasons why I decided I would make the transition from sickness care to wellness care. When I was at Lovelace Westside, I worked in Pediatrics my last two years. In those last years I came to the realization how important it is to have healthy alignment in your life and spine when you first come into this world. It’s all about preventative care! Let’s not wait for a problem to occur! Let’s prepare and help our bodies the best we can so we can have the best quality of life!!
