The Body’s Endocannabinoid System
As a teenager, Andrew Kerklaan had to see a surgeon. He’d been having numbness and back pain, so he went to the doctor’s office, waited three hours, and was told that nope, sorry, he did not have a back problem and unfortunately the surgeon was really busy and there would be no time for questions. Then he went to a chiropractor. Kerklaan in fact had a stress fracture (something he actually attributes to the paper route he had as a kid). As unpleasant a medical journey as it was, it also brought a pretty big silver lining: Kerklaan became a chiropractor in London and later in his hometown of Montreal, and for the past twenty years he’s been helping people in pain.
