Meet Dr. Derek Rodeback DO
Regenerative Medicine Specialist
Derek Rodeback completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Utah, earning a bachelors degree in Public Health. He continued his education at West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine where he earned accolades including being invited into the Honor Society Sigma Sigma Phi, graduating in the top 10% in his class. Residency was finished in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Loma Linda University in Southern California.
While in residency, Dr. Rodeback was able to learn more about bio-mechanics and mechanisms of injury, how the body truly can heal itself if provided with what it needed to do so. To him, the standard treatments available did not seem to provide good relief for muscle, joint, nerve and general body pain. Physical therapy, steroid injections, nerve blocks and even manual medicine OMT were mostly temporary pain relief or unable to resolve the issues in many cases. Feeling like the standard medical treatments for muscle and joint problems were inadequate, Dr. Rodeback focused his efforts on learning and researching Regenerative medicine. He began attending conferences for regenerative medicine which was not taught in the residency program. Bringing what he learned in regenerative medicine back to his Loma Linda program, Dr. Rodeback was asked to help teach regenerative medicine to his peers in the program. Once graduated Dr. Rodeback continued his learning and practice in regenerative medicine, working with some of the best regenerative specialists in the nation and is now bringing this cutting edge expertise to Southern Utah where he and his family now reside.
"After years of treating patients with Regenerative Medical treatments, I can confidently say there is no better method to help those who suffer from pain." --Dr. Derek Rodeback
Meet Dr. Mark Albright DC, CME
As far back as I can remember, I experienced headaches that would last 2-3 days and a few times a month. My parents would take me to the doctor many times and was given many prescriptions. Finally, at age 19, I saw my first chiropractor. The pain went away with one adjustment! Now, when a headache arises, an adjustment takes care of it. The doctor told me that there must have been some type of trauma when I was young. I inquired my parents. It turns out, I was in my mother's arms at 2 years old when we were in a head-on collision with a dump truck. (there were no child restraint laws back then) It had to be this accident. The experience with the chiropractor sparked my interest to the point that I went back to school and eventually graduated from, at the time, Parker College of Chiropractic in 1996.
I was born at Yale-New Haven Hospital and lived in a suburb of Bridgeport, Connecticut, until I was 5. My parents then moved to Bozrah, Connecticut, which has the distinction of being the only town in the world named such. The local high school was Norwich Free Academy where I graduated from in 1984. I attended Brigham Young University where I first majored in English and minored in Greek and Roman Mythology. That changed when, at 25, I decided to go to chiropractic school and then had to get caught up on the science courses.I married a wonderful girl, Christine, and have 6 wonderful children.I currently teach at Dixie State University as adjunct faculty in a gross anatomy lab setting. Students range from pre-nursing to pre-med. One of my nerdy dreams is to get a math degree and I am currently taking upper calculus and math courses on my way there.
