ABOUT DR. ROB JONES
Dr. Jones graduated from York University in Toronto, Canada on the dean’s list with a bachelor’s degrees in Kinesiology and Exercise Physiology. Dr. Jones’ undergraduate studies focused on human science related course work such as: bio-mechanics and human kinetics, human anatomy, exercise physiology, nutrition, fitness assessment and training and athletic injuries.
Dr. Jones was then accepted to and enrolled at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, Canada’s only program in Chiropractic education. The evidence-based school is a rigorous four-year doctoral program that involves intense academic courses. Cadaver anatomy, systems physiology, pathology, neurology, bio-mechanic and human kinetics, orthopedics, x-ray/radiology theory are just a sample of the many foundational courses taken prior to a culminating 12-month internship that focuses on evidence-based approaches to treating and rehabilitating musculoskeletal injuries. After his internship, Dr. Jones graduated in 2001 and moved to Lawrence, Kansas to start his practice Peak Performance. Dr. Jones is currently in his 24th year of clinical practice.
After selling his very successful practice in Kansas, Dr. Jones moved to Sarasota, Florida in 2022. In January 2023 Dr. Jones opened Sarasota Spine and Sports Performance.
Although Dr. Jones was educated as a chiropractor, he has spent the last 23 years educating himself and developing a skill set that has broadened his scope of practice to treat a wide variety of patients from professional basketball, baseball and football players, Major Champion golfers, NCAA Champions, Olympic athletes, high school athletes, weekend warriors and of course individuals from every walk of life from stay at home parents, police officers, office workers, trades people and fire-fighters. His skill-set focuses not just on chiropractic adjustments but soft tissue treatments such as ART (Active Release Techniques). His first certification was in 2000, making him the most experienced provider of ART in the Sarasota area. Other certifications include the most advanced rehab protocols such as DNS (Dynamic Neurolmuscular Stabilization), McGill pain and rehab protocols as well as The McKenzie Method. His knowledge and love for strength and conditioning as well as functional athletics has helped Dr. Jones work and consult with some of the best strength and conditioning coaches in the country.
Dr. Jones also consults with several corporations for injury prevention, exercise implementation, worker’s comp and safety training.
When not practicing Dr. Jones can be found doing what he loves to do: being active with his family, weight and fitness training, stand-up paddle surfing, playing tennis, volleyball, hiking and biking.
