Dr. Ciro Rustici

Class of 1970


When I was in school, there were only two classrooms, and it was called lower division and upper division. And so, all the students that started, the basic freshmen and some sophomore classes were in that room. Since it rotated, it didn’t matter when you started, you just sat right in, and you would go from one class, to another class, to another. Then, the upper division was more of the sciences and things, adjusting and that kind of thing. So, it’s changed a lot since then.

Chiropractic saved my life when I was 15. I was a severe asthmatic from birth that got worse and worse. By the time I was 15, two specialists in children’s asthma told my parents I wouldn’t be alive in another year because of the drugs and the asthma. One of my mom’s friends referred her to this chiropractor who did specific upper cervical. I started getting adjusted, and it was probably five weeks later I was off the drugs and never looked back. I never had another problem. Needless to say, that’s what I’ve been doing for the last 52 years.
