Suffering from constant neck pain and headaches, Dr. Kennedy was at a wedding when the bride noticed his stiff neck and asked him "what is wrong with your neck?" As he tells it, " I had never had anyone notice that subtle problem in me...how did she see it so easily? Turns out, she is a chiropractor, and was able to tune in to my problem easily.
