Early in his career, Dr. Robert Patterson became especially interested in the treatment of low back and leg pain. After hearing Dr. James Cox speak, Dr. Patterson’s eyes were opened to a vast amount of back pain research and a specific form of decompression manipulation, that was only touched upon in school. Dr. Patterson is one of the three percent of chiropractors certified in Cox Flexion-Distraction technique. He graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in 1988 and maintains a full-time practice. He is passionate about helping others learn or improve their skills in Cox Flexion Distraction. He serves as an adjunct instructor for Flexion Distraction at Cleveland University-Kansas City and is a workshop instructor for Dr. Cox.
