Today we are joined by Skip George, a veteran functional chiropractor from California. Skip is part of the faculty with the Postural Restoration Institute and runs his own practice, La Jolla Sport and Spine. Skip values using an eclectic number of disciplines to improve his patient’s health over just selling products. In this episode, Skip discusses the changes in the industry since he graduated in 1980 and how he finds fulfillment through continuous learning.
