Primary Natural Healthcare Physician
Hi there, my name is Erik Roach
I grew up on a farm in southern Wisconsin. Since the age of five I worked in the fields, and decided to make farming my career. This choice was not encouraged by the other farmers in the area. They said to me, "There are no other farmers with a 4.0 grade point average, son; you should go and be a doctor or something."
The local chiropractor was my family's primary doctor. I was surprised that chiropractic care made me feel so healthy. Besides the rigors of working in the field I was avidly involved in sports. Not only did they care for my injuries, but they also helped to maintain my overall immune system. There were also numerous times that my father was bedridden due to back pain. We would load him in the car and bring him into the office and the Chiropractor would have him back to mobility almost instantly. At the age of 12 I noticed an information packet from Palmer College in the office waiting room. It read: "Send away to find out about becoming a Chiropractor." I did, and started on the road to becoming a Chiropractic Physician. That decision changed my life.
I prepared well for the hurdles ahead of me through high school and undergraduate college courses at the University of Wisconsin in Oshkosh. I studied biology and chemistry and did research in microbiology. I received my BS in Biology. With undergraduate work complete, I went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. Palmer College, the first chiropractic college in America, was started by the Discoverer of chiropractic, D.D. Palmer. I spent four years there and studied under some of the best doctors in the profession. I am currently working on my post-doctorate degree in nutrition.
I am married; I have an eleven-year-old daughter and a 3 week old son. My family gets regular wellness adjustments. We all enjoy good health. We eat right, get plenty of exercise, and maintain our spines; all keys to living the healthy chiropractic lifestyle.
I confess that I am not the one who does the healing. The body heals itself. I only provide corrective spinal adjustments that take the pressure off the nervous system and remove the interference. This allows YOUR BODY to do the healing.
Chiropractic care is affordable! We make sure that everyone in our community can afford care, whether you have insurance or not. At our office you can get the care that you deserve and desire, provided by doctors who truly listen.
I am available to speak to you or your organization on a variety of health topics, such as back and neck pain, headaches, sciatica, arthritis, osteoporosis, and nutritional concerns, or other topics that you may be interested in. Just let us know when you come and what you are interested in. My family and I have now grown within the Central Florida community and will continue to strive to be the best Chiropractor in the Orlando area. I really do appreciate the opportunity to serve area residents.
