Dr. Alex Rovos
As a former competitive soccer player, I know just how frustrating it can be to grapple with an injury. After hurting my back as a teenager, I ended up in what felt like a never-ending cycle of doctor’s appointments and pain pills. No one ever actually addressed my injury, until I saw a chiropractor.
My own experience planted a seed in my mind – how can we better address the root cause of an injury to help people recovery faster? After earning my kinesiology degree, studying chiropractic just felt right. And now, I run my practice with the goal of helping every patient live pain free, naturally.
I’m known around the clinic for being a hands-on practitioner. It’s not unusual for me to spend an entire appointment focusing on manual therapy. But one of the greatest strengths we have at Access Rehab is the number of modalities we have at our disposal to help our patients. Specializing in chiropractic and acupuncture has helped me take my patients’ recoveries to the next level, helping keep them pain-free for longer.
For me, the most gratifying part of my job is when a patient who has been in pain for a long time sees the light at the end of the tunnel. When I hear my patient’s say things like, “I haven’t felt this good in so long,” I know just how impactful that realization will be on their everyday life.
