Dr. Rob Harrison is a licensed Chiropractor who has been practicing since 1988.
Dr. Harrison is committed to promoting optimal health and well being of patients. Raised in Hawaii Dr. Harrison attended and graduated from Iolani. Upon graduation he took a year to work and lived in Aspen, Colorado. Early during the ski season of '80/'81 he had a bad fall, injuring his neck and left shoulder. He visited a medical doctor who then referred him to an orthopedic surgeon. He was told, after a short exam, that surgery was required to repair his shoulder, that his ski season was over and that he should schedule the procedure. Upon this depressing news Dr. Harrison was guided to seek the care of a local Chiropractor. After a thorough exam this Chiropractor told Dr. Rob two things that changed his life. 1. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself with gentle guidance. 2. Our bodies are designed to self heal and self regulate if the the spine and nervous system are functioning properly. The Chiropractor encouraged Dr. Rob to give his body time, trust in his care and that if things didn't work out he go always re-visit the surgical process. Three weeks later Dr. Rob was 90% better and skiing again. This experience became a life changing event for him and he choose to help people with the same way he had been helped. Naturally.
Dr. Harrison uses a "whole person approach". This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Harrison is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.
