Meet Dr. Garett Roop
Dr. Garett had a herniated disc at the age of 17. He continued to play sports and the pain got so severe that he could not even lift his leg up off the ground. He had partial discectomy surgery to remove the disc material that was placing pressure on his nerve root. After the surgery we was still experiencing limited range of motion and discomfort. He was referred to a chiropractor and after a care plan his range of motion had increased, the pain had subsided and he was back to playing sports and enjoying life. He graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, KS in December 2006. The highlight of his education was learning that everyone can benefit with Chiropractic care from infants to professional athletes. Dr. Garett Roop has been practicing for 10 years working with families, Top Olympian/ Professional athletes, as well as Kansas State University athletics. He is well-versed in Chiropractic care and has a passion for helping everyone perform at their peak level.
Meet Dr. Haley Roop

After considerable thought chiropractic just made sense to her as a career. She likes the ability to be able to help people with the least invasive care and make a lasting difference.
