Dr. Zachary Romp
Dr. Zach attended Berry College in Georgia where he played collegiate football. He was then recruited to the University of South Florida where he played football until suffering a career ending injury. While his inspirations for professional football (USF) ended; his aspirations for a career in chiropractic had just begun.
After receiving chiropractic care and not only preventing the need for surgery but restoring his body and health, Dr. Zach decided that chiropractic was the career for him.
After graduating from the University of South Florida in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science degree with concentrations in Biological Sciences and Healthcare Management, he decided to attend the National University of Health Sciences in Illinois.
He completed his postgraduate studies and received his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from National University of Health Sciences in 2021.
As mentioned previously, Dr. Zach does not feel he was looking for the field of chiropractic, but instead, it was chosen for him after he fractured two vertebrae and sustained multiple concussions playing football.
Dr. Zach’s passion within the field of chiropractic is using various techniques (Thompson, Diversified, Motion Palpation, Toggle Recoil, Activator, etc) to correct spinal misalignments, improve nerve function and thereby improve health.
Through sound chiropractic care, he has seen the nervous system function at its optimal capacity. The results have not only been relief of pain, but overall improvement in health and wellness of these individuals.
Dr. Zach has seen firsthand the tremendous outcomes the human body can experience when put in a position to be the self-healing and self-regulating organism it was created to be. Part of his passion comes from helping his own father who has been battling the symptoms associated with Multiple Sclerosis for the past 16 years. Addressing his Physical, Chemical, and Emotional stressors has allowed him to live a much more fulfilled life as God intended.
