The 28th #NEPACreative is Dave Fultz of Exeter. Dave brings creativity to the area as a chiropractor.

How does he bring creativity though? Simple explanation: The creative aspect comes from the way in which his office approaches health issues. Dave has been in practice since 2013, but his focus has shifted in the last year.

The creative factor came about when Dave stopped caring about just getting rid of people’s health issues. When a patient walks through the doors, Dave always does his best to look at people and what they truly want to accomplish in their lives.

“There are too many people looking at patients as problems to be fixed instead of trying to help them improve every day and work toward a life where their health isn’t getting in the way of what they want,” explained Fultz. “When you look at someone as a problem to fix, you get a community of people who are loaded up with medications and not experiencing any improvement in the way they live their lives. That is a community we hope to leave behind.”

This mindset comes from the idea that we are capable, as humans, of overcoming much greater odds than we give ourselves credit for and that everyone has the ability to improve from where they are.

“I could get rid of someone’s specific problem, but if they went home to a life that they were not happy with and never do the things they wanted to be able to do, then I didn’t really see the point in that,” Fultz said. “That shift in attitude alone has produced some near miraculous results in our office.”

To Dave, being creative means not letting what people expect you to do or be limit what you actually want to accomplish. His goal is to get that idea across to his patients so that they feel encouraged enough to go after what they want in life.

When being considered as an NEPA Creative, individuals are asked to explain how they bring creativity to the area, how long they have been doing it and why, and finally what being creative means to them. Once chosen, the next step is to bring each creative into CoalCreative’s studio space to be filmed for a 60 second video that is shared every Wednesday across all their social media platforms. The series plans to highlight all sorts of creatives throughout the rest of the year. There are no limits to who could be considered. Photographers, musicians, barbers, magicians and improv artists are just a handful of the submissions CoalCreative has received thus far.
