Young chiropractor starts practice at Rodrock Chiropractic clinic
Caleb Ramsey feels at home in Baldwin City as he starts his chiropractic career as an independent contractor at Rodrock Chiropractic.
Ramsey, 26, grew up in Falls City, Neb., just across the state line north of Hiawatha.
“I’m from a town of about 5,000 so I’m used to small towns,” he said.
It was while in high school at Falls City that Ramsey started to pursue a career in health care, including training as a certified nurses assistant. Also piquing his early interest in medicine was his father’s chronic back pain and his own football injury, he said.
After high school, he enrolled at Nebraska Wesleyan University with a course of study in pre-med.
“We had doctors come talk to us,” he said. “One doctor, a chiropractor, came in and what I liked about what he did was that it was hands-on. I like talking with patients. You can’t really do that as a surgeon.”
After completing his undergraduate degree, he enrolled at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Overland Park. It was there he met Jeremy Rodrock, which opened the door to his coming to Baldwin City.
“He was a big influence,” Ramsey said. “We had the same philosophy of educating and helping the community.”
Ramsey said that in his practice he promotes an optimal living program that stresses wellness through a more active lifestyle, core exercises and working with people to get and stay in proper alignment.
The community will have an opportunity to meet Ramsey at a Baldwin City Chamber of Commerce open house from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. today at the clinic, 412 Ames St.
The clinic’s staff of chiropractic assistants Heather Jackson and Cheri Ochsner, message therapists Cindi Thomas and Jeanne Spradling and Rodrock and Ramsey would be on hand to greet visitors. Those attending will have the opportunity to tour the clinic and view its equipment, which includes an X-ray machine, electrical stimulus, core exercise apparatus and intersegmental and cervical traction, Ramsey said
