Dr. Robertson's Story
I was twelve years old when first introduced to Chiropractic. My father injured his low back while working. His boss immediately suggested seeing a Chiropractor, but my father, a skeptic at the time, said they are "Quacks" and "I'll just give it some time, it'll get better." Three months later, and to the point of exhaustion from the severe pain, he went to see a chiropractor. He entered their office walking sideways. You see, he was so bent over from the pain that he actually had to turn sideways to fit through their door. After his first visit, he was able to sit with just slight pain and the pain was no longer excruciating! This gave my father hope and more than that, it opened up a window of alternative care that he never knew existed. We were all adjusted on his next visit, not because we had pain, but because my parents wanted our body to function at 100% enabling our health to soar! It was then that chiropractic became a lifestyle for our family.
From middle through high school age, almost every project submitted, was done on chiropractic, health, nutrition, and wellness. In college, however, my path shifted to broadcast journalism and marketing. After graduating I worked for WPCH-FM/WGST-AM to sell airtime. While on my way to work one morning I was involved in a car accident. I had immediate neck pain. This brought me back to my chiropractor. When I walked out of his office after the first visit, I felt like a new person. My fatigue was gone. I was able to hold my head up without severe pain, and I felt the life force in my body had returned! It was then that I realized what a gift it was to be able to use your hands to get people well. No drugs. No surgery - just your hands! I'm a chiropractor because I wanted to give to people what I had received, a better quality of life.
Our clinic is a family practice. Since I was helped as an adolescent, I have a special interest in working with children. I'm always delighted to help a youngster, and possibly prevent some of the problems I see in our adult patients. Prevention makes a lot of sense, especially these days with the rising costs of disease treatment.
Choose chiropractic! Not only will you begin a program of care likely to help you with unwanted symptoms, but chiropractic addresses the underlying cause of disease. For optimum results, contact our office and follow the recommendations that have helped millions of chiropractic patients for over a century.
