Meet Dr Robert Delgado

Dr. DelgadoOne Moment Changed It All

Following a motorbike accident in high school, Dr Delgado experienced years of neck trouble. At the urging of his school guidance counselor, he visited a chiropractor. He already wanted to enter the health field, but knew nothing about this strange profession. Without being able to move his neck, however, Dr Delgado figured the chiropractor was worth a try.

After a gentle adjustment, he stood up and waited for the medication prescription that he assumed was coming. But the chiropractor said something unforgettable: ”You won’t need any painkillers. The body has an incredible ability to heal itself.” It was the complete opposite of the belief system Dr Delgado held, which was that health could be found in the medicine cabinet. It resonated with him and completely changed his life’s path.

Obtaining a Global Education

Two years later, he enrolled at the Durban University of Technology as a chiropractic student. This medically orientated, world-class Chiropractic degree had very high academic standards, and he trained in basic medical sciences and chiropractic. Dr Delgado entered University thinking he would help people get out of pain, but as time passed he began to realize that Chiropractic had the potencial to have a massive impact on human health

After graduating cum laude in 2006, he went to the UK intending to gain a deeper understanding of how chiropractic could help people. He ended up staying for five years, being mentored by some of the best in the business and running a successful practice. There, he learned a more vitalistic, corrective style of chiropractic, complete with lifestyle coaching. Dr Delgado also studied chronic disease prevention and posture correction, using the philosophy of chiropractic fused with the latest research to benefit his practice members.

Bringing a Holistic Approach to Healthcare

He’s trained in Europe and the U.S. to continue learning more. A high point of these experiences was a certification completed with Dr James Chestnut, the world-renowned wellness expert, as a Chiropractic Wellness Lifestyle Practitioner. This holistic course has allowed Dr Delgado to educate his practice members on how to eat, move and think in ways that will optimize their spinal care.

The greatest accomplishment for Dr Delgado was opening Delgado Chiropractic. This dream was 10 years in the making and is a reflection of how we want to serve the public, with a body and mind approach to better health.

Staying Busy With Family

Dr Delgado and his wife Lindsey have been married since 2012 and have two young boys, Gabriel and River. Becoming a father was a transformational experience for Dr Delgado and family is the most important thing in his life. They’re active and spend lots of time outdoors, particularly around Table Mountain, which is right outside their doorstep at home. They use the principles Dr Delgado teaches to his practice members in their life, though they do allow themselves to stray from the path from time to time! Their family gets regular chiropractic checks, eats the right foods and moves around as much as possible. They’re grateful for everything they have in life and try not to take things too seriously!
