Dr. Nencheck has been an active individual his entire life; participating in multiple sports from his childhood through the present day. Living a healthy lifestyle is something he strives for through both diet and exercise, and he promotes it in his training style and chiropractic philosophy.
His philosophy is based on the theory of “structure equals function.” By focusing on postural imbalances and biomechanical abnormalities, Rob is able to differentiate between the areas of the body that need attention and is able to provide the appropriate exercises and manipulations necessary to help correct those issues. Doing so puts less stress on the body leading to a decrease in pain, an increase in range of motion, and an overall higher level of performance, both physically and mentally.
He also believes that training, chiropractic, and life in general, is all about balance. Many activities should be done in moderation and it is important to not overdo any type of activity or therapy. In general and depending on the specific goals at hand; a combination of manual therapeutics including chiropractic manipulation, soft tissue therapy, and physiotherapy modalities, along with active therapies like exercise, proper nutrition, mindfulness, and rest is vital to making progress and leading a healthy life.
Rob has been employed at several fitness facilities since he obtained his personal training certification is through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) in 2009. This certification is the building block of his career and enables him to train individuals of all fitness levels. On top of his personal training certification, Rob is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). This allows him to conduct sport-specific exercise programs for patients interested in improving their athletic performance. At Yoga Loka in Frenchtown, he completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training program which he utilizes to improve his patient’s flexibility and to increase their mental awareness of their bodies.
Rob’s college education is extensive. He holds an Associate’s Degree in Exercise Science from Raritan Valley Community College (2010) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science/Sport Studies from Rutgers University (2013). He is a recent graduate of the University of Bridgeport School of Chiropractic (UBSC) in Connecticut where he received his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine (2019). He graduated UBSC with Summa Cum Laude honors and was the class Valedictorian.
Throughout his education, Rob completed a few notable internships. The first one, at TEST Sports Clubs, focused on strength and conditioning where he assisted collegiate football players to prepare for the NFL Combine. The second internship was for athletic training at Rutgers University. At this internship, he assisted the Rutgers football team with treatments of athletic injuries within the Hale Center in Piscataway, NJ. He also completed a diagnostic imaging internship at Stony Brook University Hospital in NY. This provided him with more experience in reading and diagnosing pathologies through x-ray and MRI imaging. The final internship of note was at the Veterans Hospital (VA) in West Haven, CT. Here, he treated United States veterans with chiropractic manipulation. This integrated hospital setting was an invaluable experience as it showed how chiropractic can be incorporated into the pain management of patients along with other healthcare professionals, decreasing the need for medications and other more invasive techniques.
Rob has also served the community as a certified EMT for the Tewksbury and Califon Rescue Squads for about 5 years. His goal is to incorporate his professional experiences, and the advanced degree of Chiropractic into his training philosophy to further optimize his patient’s well-being.
In his free time, Rob enjoys various recreational activities such as yoga, sports, exploring the outdoors, traveling, and simply having a good laugh with family and friends.
Rob looks forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals. Please don’t hesitate to ask him any questions, as he is more than happy to help.
