Working with you ... and for you!
Rob Williams completed his doctoral degree in chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, MO., post-graduate study and certification in acupuncture from Logan University in St. Louis, MO and his Bachelors degree in Psychology from University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Dr. williams has been very intentional about the design of his practice, doing many things to attract people who are seeking a high quality healthcare experience that is streamlined and highly effective. Cost is more per treatment, but our patients come out ahead because we get great results without having to see you as many times.
Dr. Williams’ undergraduate studies in Psychology has helped him gain a different perspective on how we respond to pain, and on the healing process itself. His forté is helping his patient understand what's going on with their body from this different perspective, so he can help them understand how to participate in their own healing process. Our bodies are designed to heal on their own. By slowing down and allowing our patients to be active participants in their own healing process, we acheive excellent results, consistently.
In addition to Dr. Williams’ study of psychology he had a career as a studio potter. Through an apprenticeship and then working in his own studio he came to understand the design principle “form follows function.” Sixteen years in practice has shown him that our musculoskeletal system works according to a similar principle. Just as he produces pots on the potters wheel to perform their intended purpose such as pouring or serving, our musculoskeletal system is designed to be able to accommodate movement. As Dr. Rob and his staff work to restore a more normal movement to the tissues so they can move as they were intended to, the symptoms clear out on their own. Form follows function.
To Dr. Rob, a patient's set of symptoms is their bodies way of telling him what's wrong. His job is to listen. He begins by listening to the story his patient tells him. The history part of his examination, typically, is very telling, but it's when he puts his hands on the patient that he can tell what's not working the way it was intended to.
Years of working with clay on a daily basis helped him fine tune the connection between his finger tips and brain, which he credits for his intuitive palpation skills. The combination of Dr. Williams’ sensory skills he developed as a studio potter, his experience in the field of psychology, and his doctoral study of the human body provides him with a unique skill set to help people.
