Dr. Jon Moser

Dr. Jon Moser was a world-class wrestler. However, he suffered from asthma attacks and was taking up to 4 medications per day just so he could breathe and continue to compete in wrestling. After his retirement from the sport he enrolled in chiropractic school. He was introduced to Upper Cervical Chiropractic while working as a full spine chiropractor. With Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care, his health proceeded to improve until finally he was off all his medication. Dr. Moser immediately enrolled in seminars for his certifications in Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific and converted his practice in Duncan, SC to Upper Cervical with dramatic results. He had finally found the answer!

In 2010, Dr. Moser was asked to participate in a research project. He sold his established practice in SC and moved to Rome, Italy. There he participated in a groundbreaking two-year project working alongside a Cardiologist and Cardiovascular Surgeon to research the effects of Upper Cervical Care on patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, with astounding results. This work is now published in a peer-reviewed journal.
