Finding the Chiropractic Solution

In Dr. Sims’ teenage years, he struggled with uncontrollable high blood pressure that had no known origin. A walking time bomb for a stroke, he had no idea until his medical doctor informed him at an annual physical exam. The doctor’s answer was to place Dr. Sims on medication. Shortly after, an automobile accident caused Dr. Sims to see a chiropractor.

Chiropractic improved his neck and backaches. Amazingly, his blood pressure readings lowered, too! It took 17 adjustments before Dr. Sims’ blood pressure was the lowest it had been in years. He weaned himself off the medication and decided to join the natural healing profession.

Training and Associations

Dr. Sims attended Hampton University to achieve a Bachelor of Science degree. Then, it was onto Life University in Marietta, Georgia, to earn a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Today, he continues to take regular continuing education courses. He’s involved in our community through educational sessions and various health screenings. The memberships Dr. Sims holds include the following:

  • The American Chiropractic Association
  • The Maryland Chiropractic Association
  • The American Black Chiropractic Association

Living the Chiropractic Lifestyle

Dr. Sims resides in Calvert County with his wife, two daughters and son. When he isn’t with his patients or family, he enjoys reading and traveling. A black belt in Taekwondo, he is often exercising through martial arts, jumping rope or running. He is a lover of music who recently inherited his father’s guitar and plans on learning to play.

“I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge.”
