A Little More About Dr. Robison
What is the favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of being a Chiropractor is variety. No patient is the same, no condition is exactly the same, no day is the same. Its also very rewarding when a patient tells you that they have been to every other doctor and suffered for years with a particular condition, and I am able get them better and literally change their life.
Tell us about why you chose to become a chiropractor.
I chose to be a Chiropractor for two reasons. First, watching my Uncle Jim take care of family members at holiday gatherings. How everyone needed an adjustment and the ability he had to diagnose their problem and fix them up right there in my grandparent’s basement. Second, Chiropractic philosophy makes perfect sense to me. I never liked to take “pills” or medications. Finding the cause of the problem and fixing it made a lot more sense than putting a band aid on it for temporary relief.
Talk about why you decided to join this practice.
I decided to join Randour Chiropractic obviously because of the family connection, as Dr. Jim III is my uncle and Dr. Jim IV is my cousin, but even more so because I believe in the chiropractic philosophy and technique that Randour Chiropractic was founded on and continues to practice today. We have always used hands on adjusting and firmly believe in the core chiropractic belief that the body has an Innate ability to heal itself if given the opportunity. That being said, if a situation or condition presents itself, we will refer that patient to the right specialist or other medical field that will address that particular condition.
What do you like to do in you spare time?
Today I enjoy playing all of those sports I learned as a kid, along with hunting, fishing, skiing, boating and camping with my son Ben.
