Dr. Robert Almeida has been practicing chiropractic care for over three decades now. Born and raised in Rhode Island, he attended Mt. St. Charles Academy where he was a part of the National Championship Ice Hockey program. He would later attend the University of Connecticut and would eventually complete his pre-med and chiropractic education at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles, California. After becoming board-certified in chiropractic care within four states, Dr. Almeida continued his education with one year in chiropractic sports therapy, and one year in chiropractic rehabilitation therapy. He would later receive a diploma from the American Academy of Pain Management and became a Fellow of the American Board of Disability Analysis. He returned to New England in 1995, and briefly practiced in Arizona and California. He began his own chiropractic practice in 1996. Since 1999, he’s been a Diplomate of the American Board of Pain Management.
Dr. Almeida’s first experience with chiropractic care occurred at the age of 19. He was cutting down, cording, and removing trees from a construction worksite when an accident occurred. He suffered for several days with lower back pain. He was unable to gain relief from traditional medical approaches, so he decided to do something different. That first step changed his life in many ways.
While he no longer plays ice hockey, Dr. Almeida does enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle that includes regular exercise, including practicing Pilates and yoga.
