“I only attended Dr. Turnbull’s seminar to get my CEU credits [I even brought a book to read in case it was boring]. The seminar was so good that I now drive 2 hours to train with Dr. Turnbull on my days off.

I have had thoracic pain for over five years. The pain would range from mild to severe. When the pain was severe I would get adjusted regularly and the pain would be mild at best. I could not jump rope or jog for more than 10 minutes without my back going into spasms and making it difficult to breathe. I had constant pain all day. Dr. Turnbull worked on my thoracics and the pain was gone and is still gone after four months. This technique is so effective that your patients will see immediate results.

Even if you are not interested in learning a new technique you should go to this seminar just to have Dr. Turnbull work on your spine, it is well worth your time and money. If you have any questions about how awesome this seminar is please email me at or call 304-472-6393.
Thank you Dr. Turnbull for getting me out of pain and more importantly making me a better chiropractor.”
