31, 2019 -- Brian Walsh, DC credits a chiropractor for saving
him from having back surgery.
Inspired by the profession, Dr. Walsh decided to leave
his career as an electrical engineer and began looking into chiropractic
“Logan just felt right to me right from the start,” he recalls.
“The beautiful campus, the welcoming details of our first visit, the ergonomic
classrooms—all of these things made it apparent this was the best choice for
While he attended Logan, his wife, Ann, worked as an
office assistant in a practice with three chiropractors in St. Charles. There she learned how to manage a practice.
After Dr. Walsh graduated from Logan in 1999, he and his wife moved back to
their native Melbourne, Florida, and opened up their own practice, CARE Natural Wellness Center, focusing on
chiropractic care, as well as nutritional therapy and wellness.
“We started our small, family-oriented, cash-based
practice with the goal of helping people in our community get healthy naturally.
I now see approximately 120 to 130 patients per week, ranging in age from one
month old to 90 years old,” he says. “Our practice has steadily grown over the
last 18 years, and I am now looking to hire two more practitioners.”
He thanks his instructors at Logan for an excellent
experience. “They are committed to this profession and to the process of
teaching,” says Dr. Walsh. “My wife and I enjoy giving back and we are big
believers that if everyone gave a little, Logan’s needs would be fulfilled.”
Currently, Dr. Walsh is working to obtain his
nutritional diplomate from the American Board of Clinical Nutrition. He has
seen an uptick in digestive and immune system problems in the past few years
and recognizes the importance of correct nutrition to alleviate these issues.
I believe in treating the whole person—body, mind and
spirit. This is how you achieve the best results,” he says. “While building a practice is important, I
suggest doctors stay focused on the patients and helping them get healthy and
stay healthy, as naturally as possible.”
