Even before he became a chiropractor, Dr. Robin Roberts understood the power of a good adjustment. He played on a minor league baseball team, and before and after every game, he observed the team chiropractor keeping players healthy enough to hustle for ground balls, swat dingers, and run away from broken windows. It was enough that, once he hung up his glove, he decided to become a chiropractor himself.
Since 2003, Dr. Roberts has been administering his hands-on chiropractic techniques to professional baseball players, hockey players, and patients suffering from aches and chronic pain. Eschewing every ounce of conventional medication and invasive techniques, his non-invasive methods trigger the body's own self-healing resources to correct ailments ranging from chronic pain to migraines.
