Dr Robert Walker
In 1987, Dr Robert Walker graduated from Chiropractic College in the USA. Whilst in Chiropractic school, Dr. Walker also studied various Cranial manipulation techniques and Visceral treatment approaches.
To this knowledge, he added his previous extensive background in Biology, Physiology, Biochemistry, Toxicology, Nutrition and Physiological Psychology.
Once in practice and faced with many difficult headache and pain patients, he found huge gaps of knowledge in the education of both Chiropractors and Dentists, as well as the entire Medical profession. The Chiropractic schools, while stressing body Biomechanics and neurology, had ignored the craniomandibular system and the importance of proper dental occlusion. The Dental schools had missed the importance of overall body posture and organ function, especially as it relates to head posture and occlusion. He also realized that the cranial system and Nutrition were almost totally ignored in both fields at the undergraduate level.
So he set out to acquire further knowledge in the fields of Cranial mechanics, TMJ and Dental Orthopedics. This included study under such renowned Dental clinicians as Merl Bean, Derek Mahony, Jim Broadbent, Terry Spahl, Brendan Stack, Ralph Garcia, Skip Truitt, John Witzig, Bill Clarke, and Jay Gerber.
He also studied various Cranial manipulation techniques from many renowned Doctors including Dr’s DeJarnette, Upledger, Denton, Pick, Goodheart and Rees.
Since 1987, Dr. Walker has been developing and teaching Chirodontics™ to a global audience. He teaches a multidisciplinary approach to Health, Head pain and TMD, utilizing Chiropractic, Dental Orthopaedics, Cosmetic Dentistry, Nutrition and Cranial Orthopedic manipulation techniques.
