Hello! Call me Rob, your local chiropractor in the busy hub of Te Atatu Peninsula.
I am a father to two active boys and my journey into chiropractic care started in the mid-eighties. After suffering from sciatica for years, I tried everything I came across to help alleviate my symptoms but nothing helped until one day I had a chiropractic adjustment. A week later when I realized the pain was gone, I was intrigued.
In 1993 I left the police force and moved my family to the United States of America so that I could train to become a chiropractor with the Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Caroline. My youngest son was born there whilst I pursued my studies. So to support my family, I studied during the day and waited tables in the evenings.
In 1997 we returned to New Zealand and opened a practice in Ponsonby, which I consequently sold in 2005 and opened a practice in Te Atatu Peninsula. I have been here ever since. In 2012 I also started working as a student mentor at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, where I assist students with adjusting and managing their patients.
No matter what the age; from newborn babies to my oldest patient who is 90 years old, I love being able to help people naturally. I believe whole-heartedly in the benefits of chiropractic care, not only because of my training but also because of my personal experience and the feedback and gratitude expressed by relieved patients whom I have had the pleasure of assisting.
