Dr. George Rhodes
At 18, I was in Wildwood, New Jersey, for a first time ever week long vacation with my high school buddy, Chris. On Day 2, while body surfing, I whipped my head around to get the hair out of my eyes, (not a problem now) and my neck locked up. I knew my vacation was shot until Chris said, "Mike here is a Chiropractor, he can help you"! I had no idea what that meant, and the next minute, I found out. The adjustment melted the stiffness and pain immediately. Within that hour, I knew I had been called to be a Chiropractor.
In 1982, I opened up my practice in Philadelphia. My adjusting technique was pretty traditional. Palpate the spine and introduce forces by hand to correct subluxations. Worked pretty well!
Then, in 2005, my wife and I welcomed our baby girl into the world. Naturally, the first thing I did was check her for subluxations. Using slight finger pressure, I adjusted the first bone in her neck to take pressure off her brain stem. This subluxation occurs in about 99% of births. I knew that my traditional technique could not injure my baby. But, big hands, little baby, I might miss something. So, I learned a new technique (KST). This allowed me to use a binary biofeedback protocol to ask the body what was going on and how to proceed with the proper adjustment. This technique has revolutionized how I understand the subluxation. Every moment to moment stress is recorded in the good column or bad column. When people present themselves for help, I can decipher the picture using my creative instincts to bring about the fastest resolution of the problem. It is about shifting events from the negative column to the positive column.
My mission is to wake people up to a bigger reality. To provide the unique service of analysis and adjustment of subluxation so that people can heal and thereby raise the consciousness and vitality of humanity.

"The ultimate purpose of the chiropractic adjustment is to reunite man the physical with man the spiritual so that the finite may know itself as the infinite."
- D.D. Palmer, discoverer of chiropractic
Quanece has been working for Dr. Rhodes since October of 2020. Previous to working as a CA, she had no previous knowledge on the world of chiropractic. When she received her first adjustment, immediately she was hooked. Chiropractic had to be her norm. Thankfully, now it is. When not at the office, Quanece is an actor, educator, and dog boarder. Regular adjustments definitely helped her with auditions and feeling more comfortable in the acting whelm. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, playing video games, axe throwing, and going to paintings with a twist!
