Christopher L. Moss, D.C.
Family Chiropractic Physician
Dr. Moss received his BA from The University of The State of New York, then studied at New York Chiropractic College where he graduated and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree (D.C.degree) in 1992. As a child and young man, he was always intrigued as to how things worked. He would take things apart and put them back together again so he had a full understanding of how and why it worked. He would usually fix the major appliances, the cars and the computers in the house. His interest in chiropractic came about when his mother, having suffered many years of migraine headaches, was improved greatly after seeing a chiropractic physician on Long Island, N.Y. where they lived. His mom had taken every known pill on the planet, both OTC and prescription, with no real relief for many years. He went with his mom on one of her chiropractic visits because he wanted to find out why she was so much better. After meeting the doctor and learning a bit about the spine and how the nervous system controls the health of all organs, muscles and tissues in the body, he received his first chiropractic adjustment and "felt like a million bucks" afterwards. After that experience, he had to know more. After much research into what a chiropractic doctor does, he knew this was his calling. It made sense to him that the body was controlled entirely by the brain. He did not want to be a medical doctor. He learned that medication only masks symptoms and can actually work against nature and can cause many other health problems in the body. He wanted to be a chiropractic doctor; a doctor that restores normal function and health back to the body, naturally.
Note From Dr. Moss :
"Your body has a God given gift of healing itself. No doctor heals the body. Medication does not heal the body. The body has the power to heal itself but you must remove the interference to that healing power. That's what chiropractic care does."
"My objective is to give you relief from your pain by finding and removing the cause of your pain and not just masking the symptom with medication. Every symptom in the human body has a cause and a reason for that symptom. Chiropractic care is very different than medical care. Pain killers, anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers only treat the symptom but do not fix the cause of that symptom. If you only treat the symptoms, you leave the cause of those symptoms in your body, only to return another day."
"I have been practicing for over 20 years and have a lot of experience in caring for babies and children (Yes, I can eliminate ear infections and colic without medication and antibiotics), and caring for adults and seniors. I have solved many tough cases that couldn't be solved by medical doctors and I enjoy the challenge. I have been in my current location on Battlefield Blvd. Chesapeake for over 16 years. I keep up to date with current spine reasearch by reading health care journals and taking continuing education classes ensuring that my patients receive the most comprehensive and advanced chiropractic care. I enjoy running races for exercise, playing all kinds of sports, perennial and vegetable gardening, smoking cigarettes (just kidding), and educating the public about improving their health naturally. I welcome you to my office and my staff and I will treat you like you are family."
