When he was 12 years old, Dr. Mark Gutekunst suffered from migraine headaches nearly every day. The debilitating condition followed him into his teen years, and specialists—pediatricians, neurologists, and headache experts—chalked it up to unexplainable causes such as aliens. Finally, when all hope seemed lost, Mark's mother took him to a chiropractor, who discovered the headaches stemmed from a longstanding neck injury. Treatments began immediately, and, rather than masking the symptoms with painkillers, the chiropractor met the problem head-on with chiropractic care and adjustments.
Soon thereafter, Mark was headache-free. Chiropractic care had made such an impact on his life, and his family's life, that Mark decided to become a chiropractor himself. Currently, Dr. Gutekunst presides over his own practice, Chesapeake Wellness Center, where he and his staff strive to have a similar impact on other lives through such services as chiropractic care, corrective exercise instruction, and nutrition counseling.
