Practicing for over 10 years in the Kalamazoo Portage area, Dr. Jonathan Vahue first graduated from Western Michigan University in 1992 with a degree in chemistry. He spent 5 years working for a local pharmaceutical firm as a drug and later a nutritional chemist. During this time, he suffered a serious neck injury in a sporting event. He experienced intense, sharp pain into both arms and could barely turn his head.
Medical consults found "no cause" for his symptoms, and only prescribed high doses of some of the very drugs he had worked on, which caused unpleasant side effects. They never mentioned chiropractic. He was no longer able to do the things he enjoyed and his life was deteriorating.
