Dr. Sanders

Dr. Robert Sanders DCDr. Sanders was born in Des Moines, Iowa. He grew up in Arizona and spent his adulthood in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. He graduated from University of Oregon in 2001 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business and a minor in Computer Science. While in school at Oregon, he raced for the cycling team and played for the ultimate team. Following school he worked as a marketing executive, when he felt compelled to leave his career and pursue providing care for others. He began as a massage therapist in 2009, quickly excelling in clinical care. He realized early on that massage was only the beginning of his health care career. While in private practice he returned to University of Oregon to obtain a Bachelor’s of Science in Human Physiology and a minor in Organic Chemistry in 2015. While in school he investigated careers in Physical Therapy and Osteopathic Medicine, finally choosing Chiropractic as his preferred profession to care for patients through physical medicine.

Dr. Sanders graduated from University of Western States with a Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2018. While in school he was Student Body Representative for his class, Teaching Assistant for the Human Anatomy Lab, President of both the UWS and Portland-wide Integrative Medicine Club, as well as the UWS Functional Neurology Club. He also discovered a passion for powerlifting, setting the school record for heaviest deadlift.

In addition to traditional Chiropractic care, Dr. Sanders has an expertise in Osteopathic manual therapies, especially cranial and visceral manipulation. He has also several hundred hours of training in functional neurology for post-concussion syndrome and other neurological disorders. He is a member of the American Chiropractic Association the Idaho Association of Chiropractic Physicians, and the International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I'm a young and fairly active woman. I started having a pain in my hip area and thought it was a pinched nerve or something. The pain was getting stronger every time this would happen. The last time it happened the pain was so bad it put me into tears! I didn't want to go to a doc in the box because I figured they would just prescribe me pain pills and not fix the problem... whatever that would be. My Office Manager suggested that I go to Dr.Klena. She and the staff here at my new job all used him. Idaho Chiropractic got me in first thing in the morning and took good care of me. Come to find out it was from a previous car accident and when I had started playing golf four months earlier I was just irritating that hip and inflamed some tissue in that joint. Dr.Klena made a complete plan for me that included adjustments, ultra sounds, stretching and strengthening on top of a payment plan! I'm fixed and so grateful that they could do it without medicating me."
