Jones was unable to raise either leg high enough to climb the stairs out of his basement apartment.
Luckily, a friend took matters into her own hands and took him to her chiropractor. After a comprehensive evaluation and additional x-rays, the chiropractor determined that Dr. Jones’ pelvis and lumbar spine were out of alignment. According to Dr. Jones, “He did a very thorough exam, adjusted me, and when I got off of the table I was 90% better. I experienced a miracle.”
It took a few years before Dr. Jones decided to become a chiropractor, but that event changed his entire outlook on healthcare, and he is now lucky enough to observe similar “miracles” with his patients every day.
Education and Experience
Dr. Bobby Jones graduated valedictorian with the University of Western States’ class of 2001 and has practiced in the Portland area since 2005. He also has BS degrees in biology, chemistry and secondary education and an MS in geology.
Dr. Jones has studied numerous chiropractic techniques and obtained several supplemental certificates. He is an Activator Methods Advanced Proficient practitioner. This technique allows him to check the body at each visit to determine what levels of the spine need to be adjusted and which segments should be left alone.
He also studied with Dr. Tedd Koren, learning the Koren Specific Technique (KST) that allows the patient to be adjusted in a position that reproduces the stress and pain they regularly experience throughout their daily lives. This provides an even better way of analyzing segments that are causing stress to the body but only in certain positions.
In addition to expertise with various cutting-edge adjusting tools and methods, Dr. Jones is a strong advocate for proper nutrition including identifying specific diet sensitivities as well as necessary dietary deficiencies. Based upon the cutting edge work of Dr. Frank Springob, Morphogenic Field Technique, Dr. Jones is able to assess the body's specific nutritional needs. He understands that proper nutrition is vital to help the body heal injured tissue.
Dr Jones is also trained in homeopathy and will often recommend homeopathic remedies to stimulate the body’s own innate power to heal if indicated.
He is married to wife Sandy and spend their spare time (and money) restoring a 1912 Farmhouse in Gresham. He has a daughter, Caitlin, who lives in North Georgia and works as an elementary school teacher. They are the caretakers for four cats and several fish.
