Infield Chiropractic has moved to a new location at 22570 Lakeshore Blvd. After four years at our previous location we have outgrown our space. We have decided to stay in Euclid and purchased the former Curves building about two years ago. Since then we have fully remodeled the interior and exterior of the building. We have been able to reinvest without passing the cost along to our patients, keeping our rates the same as the day we opened. Yes, we still offer $20 sports physicals for the community’s youth! This is a large investment in this community for a small business like ours. We plan on being in Euclid for a very long time and have come across some wonderful people in our time here so far. Dr. Paul has been very busy, not just taking care of patients but also by being very active in the community. He currently sits on the board of directors for the Euclid Chamber of Commerce, Northeast Ohio Academy of Chiropractic, and the Shore Culture Centre. In addition due to Dr. Paul being a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, he has been chosen for a volunteer role with the United States Olympic Committee’s Sports Medicine staff and is volunteering his time with the Euclid High School volleyball team. Thanks to the demand for high quality Chiropractic Care and the amount of time Dr. Paul spends working with various organizations in the community and nationwide, it was time to expand our staff. We have brought in an Associate Chiropractor, Dr. Michael Lozitsky, to help provide more same day appointments and also brought on two additional staff members to help with day to day flow. Infield Chiropractic is looking forward to serving Euclid and surrounding communities for many years to come.

He had just lost the love of his life, and he came to the Center because he didn’t want to be alone. His feelings and emotions were raw. They went from relief that the suffering was over, to anger and a horrible feeling of emptiness. Twenty-six years together is a long time.
During that time, they had shared everything in life. Good times, and bad. Happy and sad. It has been said that everyone needs a witness to their life and his had died, just this morning.
We talked about the belief that birth and death are opposites, but there is no opposite to life. We talked about life going on, but in a different form that we cannot see. We spoke about the gift that life together had been, and how it is better that the suffering is now over.
