032: Posture, Chiropractic, and Brain Health with Dr. Roger Elmer



Roger Elmer graduated from Palmer, College of Chiropractic in 1992 with the desire to change peoples lives for the better. However, he quickly learned that the things taught in school did not correct the spine or posture like he had hoped. He found adjustments and treatments merely put a bandaid on the symptom, while ignoring the actual problem. Throughout his first few years as a Chiropractor, he became frustrated when each patient follow-up x-ray did not show the kind of changes in the spine he thought were possible. After years of looking for a better solution and almost quitting his profession for a career in teaching physics, he found the answers to what he was trying to achieve: The Pettibon System. He began his journey helping people regain their lives by fixing the problems that caused their ailments. Fast forward 14 years, Dr. Elmer is one of the leading instructors and innovators in the Pettibon system for improving and correcting the spine. He has made a reputation for taking on and solving “the difficult cases” throughout the Nation, Mexico, and Canada. In his determination to help more people who are suffering, he has become a board qualified Functional Neurologist. It has significantly opened up a variety of disorders and diseases he has been able to treat. Dr. Elmer is very excited about the effects that have come through healing the brain. The results from combining Structural Correction and Functional Neurology is what sets him apart as “the man with the answers.”
