Dr. Rob grew up in Saugatuck, a small town in Southwest Michigan. Dr. Rob sought out chiropractic care as a young athlete for neck and back pain after playing high school basketball, football, and golf. He found pain relief soon after starting care and continued his sports career. But it wasn’t until his chiropractor explained that chiropractic is more than just neck and back pain, that Dr. Rob really started to see chiropractic at its truest potential. He learned that specific chiropractic adjustments can help with infertility, asthma, ADHD, headaches, ear infections, and much more. When he was educated by his childhood chiropractor that by making specific adjustments to the spine the nervous system allows the body to restore and heal itself, he decided at that point he wanted to make a difference and become a chiropractor.
Dr. Rob is a graduate from Grand Rapids Community College, where he obtained an associates degree. He then received a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences from Grand Valley State University, and continued his studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida to obtain a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. Dr. Rob was very involved on and off campus with the Gonstead Technique club and continues to improve his skills by attending multiple seminars a year. Dr. Rob has extensive training in pregnancy and pediatrics and loves to serve families and children of all ages.
Dr. Rob has faced many health struggles prior to truly understanding how the body works, and its healing ability through Chiropractic care. Although it is too late for him to prevent his past surgeries, one of Dr. Rob’s passions is to spread health and healing through chiropractic care in order to provide an alternative to surgery and medications. We understand that people have different health struggles and different walks of life, but we know that your body is made to be resilient and can function far better without interference to your nervous system. Your symptoms do not define who you are; we want to be the key that unlocks the door to you living your fullest life through specific chiropractic care.
Outside of the office, Dr. Rob enjoys hunting, fishing, playing sports, and spending time with his wife and family. We are excited and blessed to bring Gonstead Chiropractic care, along with hope and healing, to the Kalamazoo and surrounding area. We can’t wait to meet you!
