What Makes our office unique?
Tri-State Healing Center is the only office around that offers Chiropractic BioPhysics, which focuses on structural rehab. Considering the fact structure dictates function, abnormal posture or any loss of curve in the spine will increase the stress and pressure on muscles, joints, and spinal nerves. Which happens to be triggers for several symptoms like headaches, migraines, radiculopathies, as well as neck and back pain just to name a few.
We are the only clinic around that takes before and after x-rays to show structural improvements, and Dr. Rob is the only certified Nutrition Response Testing practitioner in Angola and surrounding areas. Nutrition Response Testing is the best non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
Common Chiropractic Misconceptions
Still to this day, it's amazing how many old dogmatic misconceptions many people have about chiropractic care. These misconceptions started in the 1940s when medical doctors belonging to the American Medical Association (AMA) tried to eliminate the profession by portraying chiropractors as uneducated and unscientific charlatans. Their efforts to mislead the public about chiropractic professionals persisted until a 1980s federal lawsuit (Wilk vs AMA) found the AMA guilty of conspiracy against chiropractic services. Fact is hundreds of studies showing the effectiveness of chiropractic care has been published in major medical journals. For example, in 2017 even the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) adds to the growing research that supports spinal manipulation therapy for alleviating low back pain, a common ailment that affects millions of Americans.
Researchers analyzed the data of more than 1,700 patients with lower back pain and found that spinal manipulation was safe and effective in both reducing pain and improving function. Patients reported greater ease in performing everyday activities along with being able to walk more quickly and sleep more soundly. If chiropractic care was dangerous, malpractice insurance would cost more than a few thousand per year. Compared to the average medical malpractice insurance police being anywhere from $50,000 to as much as $150,000 per year! People are often surprised to discover that the education received at a chiropractic college is quite similar to the education received in medical school. Chiropractic students receive more training in areas like anatomy, neurology, nutrition, diagnosis, X-ray and orthopedics. While medical students spend more time in areas like pathology, chemistry, psychology, gynecology, and pharmacology. Education is a big part of Tri-State Healing Center. That's why we offer health talks to people in the community on various health topics.
Over the last 30 years I seen several chiropractors, some good some not so much, so I feel confident in saying he is one of the best. I never feel rushed and he always listens and gives sound advice. His staff is always friendly and accommodating with regard to appointments. I highly recommend this office.
From the receptionist who is friendly and can answer just about any question to Dr. Rob it was a wonderful experience. And, we left feeling better than we walked in! Thanks!
