I’m Dr. RJ Burr, a chiropractor in Plymouth, MI. I’ve never been much of a wordsmith, so I’ve always found writing these bios to be a little tricky. But hey, if I were a wiz at writing biographies, I probably wouldn’t have been able to focus on my true passion in life: helping people get back to doing what they love and performing better.
I graduated from Central Michigan University before I pursued my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the National University of Health Sciences (NUHS). I’ve accrued more than 700 hours of post-graduate work with an emphasis on manual therapy, rehabilitation, biomechanics, nutrition and movement restoration. I’ve earned various certifications such as McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (Cert. MDT), Active Release Techniques (ART), and Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) medical track, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and a candidate for the American Chiropractic Rehab Board Diplomate (DACRB). I discovered early on that truly solving problems wasn’t something I could do alone. As a matter of fact, we have to work together and you have to be the change. I don't "fix" people, rather work as a guide to solve their muscle and joint pain frustrations, so they can get back to the lifestyle they deserve.
