Adults should strive for 150-300 minutes per week of moderate intensity or 75-150 minutes per week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

    David Robinson DC

    Chiropractor

    Personal Fitness Trainer

     

    A native of New Bedford and the South Coast, when first learning about chiropractic as an undergrad, David developed a passion for chiropractic's drug-less, organic approach to health care that recognizes the body's innate intelligence.

     

    David's 30 years experience as a chiropractor includes private practices in New Bedford, Plymouth and Peabody, Massachusetts, and working as a staff DC in a Boston practice. He also had a house calls practice for private patients in the South Coast.

    David is one of the extremely small number of chiropractors world wide who have the ability to perform gentle, vertebra-specific adjusting by hand. He never uses random spinal adjusting, adjusting with table parts that drop/move, adjusting with instruments, or general manipulation.

    His current practice in New Bedford is a wellness practice specializing solely in locating vertebral subluxations and eliminating them only using gentle, chiropractic vertebra-specific adjusting by hand. Electrical and physical therapies are not used, and, diet/weight loss plans and nutritional supplements are not sold. Auto accidents and insurances are declined. The practice is private; potential new patients are by invitation only; acceptance of new patients is selective and limited.

     

    Seven years into his initial private practice, having been active in and passionate about daily fitness for more than 15 years, David became nationally certified as a Personal Fitness Trainer through the Athletics & Fitness Assoc. of America, Sherman Oaks California. At the time, AFAA was only one of two nationally accredited certifying organizations to require candidates to complete classroom and practical training, as well as successfully complete practical testing in addition to written testing.

     

    David has more than 23 years experience as a personal trainer, including private clients for in-home and on-site personal training, working as an independent contractor out of fitness centers in Plymouth and Pembroke, Massachusetts, being contracted as a personal trainer for the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Training Council’s police cadet physical training program, working as a personal trainer at fitness clubs in San Diego and Solana Beach, California, and at the Newport County (Rhode Island) YMCA.

    He has been a personal trainer at the Dartmouth YMCA Healthy Living Center since its opening in April 2014.
