meet the doctors
Dr. Philip Rodger
Owner / Chiropractor
I grew up in a very small town in south central Wisconsin called Oxford. When I was young I spent a lot of time outside in the woods and helping out at my aunt and uncle’s dairy farm feeding calves, mowing hay and even milk cows once in a while. I learned a lot about the importance of family and working hard.
Growing up I was always trying to help people in any way that I could. It always felt very rewarding to know that you helped someone out in some way, shape or fashion. So now that I have the opportunity to help people regain their health as a chiropractor is the most rewarding thing that I could ever do.
I started Chiropractic school at Cleveland Chiropractic College – Kansas City in the fall of 2010. Before I started chiropractic school I had only been adjusted once in my life. It did not take long for me to absolutely fall in love with the principles of chiropractic and to be honest, just how awesome getting adjusted regularly made me feel! Chiropractic College is also where I met my wife, Dr. Angela. So I can definitely say that without chiropractic I would not have the life I have today.
While in Chiropractic college I attended a multitude of elective seminars outside of school through the Motion Palpation Institute so I could hone my adjusting skills. I graduated in December of 2013 with Cum Laude honors and moved shortly after that to practice in Colorado. We spent just over two years in Colorado and then decided to move closer to family here in Central Florida.
Nothing would make me happier than to have the opportunity to meet you and see if chiropractic care can improve your life. I’d love to see how we can get started to meet all the health goals that you want to achieve.
Dr. Angela Rodger
Owner / Animal Chiropractor
I grew up a long way from where I am now in Central Florida. I was originally born in Cape Town and I grew up just out side of Johannesburg in South Africa. As a young girl I was absolutely obsessed with horses and learned a very young age I wanted to ride. I became a distinguished rider in show jumping, eventing, equitation and dressage. It was here in horse riding that I had my first exposure to chiropractic and learned that this is what I was meant to do.
One day back in South Africa my champion show jumper Midnight started to go lame. We could not figure out what was wrong with him or how to correct his lameness. We had the veterinarian, physical therapist, tried lasers, infrared lights you name it we tried it and nothing corrected the lameness. Then one of my equestrian friends asked me a very simple question, “Have you tried an animal chiropractor?”.
At the time we didn’t know that anything like that existed but we searched and found a provider in our area. He assessed Midnight and found a subluxation in his mid back where the saddle sits. After one adjustment Midnight let out a huge sigh of relief and was back to his old self. It was then that I knew that this is what I wanted to do, help animals with my hands to be the best versions of themselves.
I received my Chiropractic education at Cleveland Chiropractic College – Kansas City in April of 2014. While I was finishing my Chiropractic education I was also studying animal chiropractic at Options for Animals in Wellsville, KS. I received my diploma from Options for Animals in February of 2014 before graduating from Chiropractic College.
From there I continued on with my education of animal chiropractic by getting certified through the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association in October of 2016. Certification is a voluntary process by which a non-government entity grants a time-limited recognition and use of a credential to an individual after verifying that he/she has met predetermined and standardized criteria. Certification is distinct from licensure in that it is voluntary and requires recertification to maintain the credential. Earning certification from the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association represents a significant professional achievement. AVCA Certification makes an important statement about professional competence that is recognized by the profession, the public and some regulatory bodies. Since then I have taken many continuing education courses to stay up to date on the most advanced techniques so I can provide the best cutting edge treatments to all my furry clients.
Nothing would make me happier than the opportunity to meet you and your furry family members and check if chiropractic care can help you. Reach out to us today and lets see how we can improve the lives of your furry family members and yourself!
