Palos Hills Chiropractor : Dr. Robert Wright and Team
Dr. Robert Wright, Chiropractic Physician, Certified Clinical Nutritionist, Certified Applied Kinesiologist
Dr. Wright has become known as the “go-to Doctor” when patients need answers.
With his vast clinical nutrition and amino acid knowledge, patients are also seeking his expertise for their family’s Overall General Health as well, knowing natural and holistic medicine is the route we should try first – – before resorting to drugs and surgeries.
Dr. Wright, a graduate of the prestigious National School of Health Sciences has been serving Palos Hills residents and surrounding communities for over 26 years now. His comfortable manner and honesty with patients have gained him a reputation in the community as “the doctor where family and friends refer.”
On a Personal Note…
He lives locally in Palos with his family. His wife, Joyce is active in the office. She regularly works out and believes this plus excellent nutrition is what makes them such a healthy & happy family. And Dr. Wright’s young son at 14 is already into nutrition and working out. He plans on taking over Dad’s Health office one day, or being a hockey player or real estate mogul… depends on which week you ask him …. Lol.
Note from Rob’s wife, Joyce (he didn’t know I added this): Most women lose their husbands to sports, TV, bowling with the boys, etc. My husband can be found 99% of the time in his study or man-cave, reading, researching patient cases, listening to videos, learning, learning, learning. That’s why I can definitely say, “when you’re under my husband’s care, you have one of the most caring and involved doctor’s on your side that you’ll ever meet.”
As I evolve within my practice a few things have become more clear.
- My job is not to heal the body, that’s the patient’s job.
- My job is to identify obstacles to healing and help the patient remove those obstacles.
- Obstacles to health and healing tend to be either mechanical, chemical or emotional in nature.
- Lifestyle sits in the front seat while our genetics sit in the back seat.
- Natural healthcare is for those who choose to play a pro-active role if their life, not a passive role.
- If you’re doing or thinking what the average person is doing or thinking today, sad but true, chances are you’re on a destructive health path. And it’s not your fault, federal safety agencies (FDA, EPA, etc., pharmaceutical companies, advertising, marketing, conventional medicine) all tell you, you have No Control Over your Own Life / Your own Health. You must take drugs, have multiple surgeries, remove organs. Pesticides are okay to ingest, chemical are okay to be used on your skin, in your house, on your lawn, drank in your water. Abuse yourself, it’s okay. We’ll be here with a medication to fix it, and if a med doesn’t, we’ll cut it out – then you’ll be fine. Now, does that sound rational?
- We are not created equal on the physical realm. We have to learn which lifestyle habits work best for us personally. Believe it or not, small changes add up to BIG CHANGES.
- Have some fun and enjoy life!
Exercise and diet are key factors to my health, all health. They just make everything better. I eat well and exercise regularly. I feel my best when I do weights for 30 minutes about 2-3 times per week and play basketball, football and running exercises about 1-2 times per week. I have to admit I like sweets . . but in comes that “moderation” word again – it’s true.
I also benefit from detoxing occasionally. I am not against medications (for crisis care) but prefer to manage things with natural remedies when possible because they work better with the body, and do not have any long term toxic effects on the body. I also get adjusted regularly.
I was 17 when I read my first book on nutrition.
The idea that food and natural remedies could “make or break” the quality of someone’s life in a major way blew my mind. How come I didn’t know this, how come my family didn’t tell me this ?? So, I started reading and reading, and learning and learning. And it became evident that there was a ton of important information relating to our health that people simply were not getting.
So, this is when I had that “light bulb moment” in your life when you know . . . exactly what your mission in life is meant to be. I immediately changed my major from Architecture to Chiropractic, later going on to get my Diplomat in Nutrition Degree. I knew the combination of the two was big, I could transform people’s health and their lives.
I’m still doing it, still loving it, and will continue to heal, educate and motivate people until my life’s work is done.”
I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. Call and schedule an appointment today!

Joyce Wright, Office Manager and Nutritional Assistant
With Palos Chiropractic & Holistic Health for 18 years.
I absolutely love the direction our office has expanded and grown into. We have truly evolved into our dream office; a healing and prevention clinic. People not only get healed in our office, they get educated. They learn things they never knew about their bodies, and how to function each day without re-injuring. They learn that food is your body’s foundational blocks. They learn that what they think absolutely affects how they feel . . . More and more people are starting to embrace holistic medicine; they are starting to understand that what’s out there in conventional medicine today is not working. And I believe with every ounce of my being, that what we are doing and teaching, IS WORKING. Just see our hundreds and hundreds of success stories and testimonials from patients.
Prepare to start feeling good again, like you did years ago Prepare to start having energy again. Prepare to start looking good again. Welcome, you are in wonderful hands here with Dr. Wright and his tremendous staff.
We’re glad you’re hear and ready to start – ‘cause we’re ready for you! Joyce

Casey Rivera, Chiropractic Assistant, Office Insurance & Billing
Originally hired as a Clinical Massage Therapist, Casey continues to work hand-in-hand with Dr. Wright administering spot / soft tissue massage and teaching exercise and strengthening to patients. In addition, Casey also runs the Front Desk of our health office, as well as handling patient billing / insurance for our patients.
SCHOOLING/ HISTORY: “I decided to go into massage largely because of my family’s health history. I had always been interested in alternative healing methods but when my brother was diagnosed with several severe spinal diseases, we sought the help of a local therapist to work with him. After seeing the healing capabilities of massage within my own family, I knew it was something I wanted to pursue as a career.”
Ticelyn Sallis, Chiropractic Assistant, Licensed Massage Therapist
Ticelyn will be handling our Front Desk as well as being Dr.’s right-hand-person in the afternoons.
She will be using her strong massage skills and teaching strengthening exercises daily to patients.
Look for Ticelyn to be expanding into 30 & 60 minute massages in our office as well.
Her skills include: Swedish, Sports Massage, Myofascial and Trigger Point.

We not only love Ticelyn’s strong skills she brings to our health office, but her positive energy and fun sense of humor make her a perfect fit.
Ann Pikula, Licensed Massage Therapist, Fitness Professional
I knew I wanted to be a Massage Therapist since I was 10!
I’ve always loved helping people feel better, but more importantly, even at such a young age I wondered why it took medicine to heal even the slightest of aliments. I instantly took to holistic healing as soon as I learned what it was. It’s not just about relieving pain or feeling better, it’s about actually BEING better. It’s about finding the reason behind the “what” and not just masking the condition momentarily.
Since 2007 I’ve been a Licensed Massage Therapist working alongside Chiropractors, Physical Therapists and Nutritionists. My knowledge of, and appreciation for the field only grows.
I specialize in:
– Therapeutic Massage
– Deep Tissue
– Trigger Point Therapy
In 2013 I decided to expand my career in the health industry and become a Fitness Professional. I am certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and specialize in corrective exercise, strengthening, and weight loss.
Dr. Wright’s office is an environment where I practice both Massage Therapy and Exercise Rehabilitation and look forward to being a part of true physical healing and emotional well-being of others.
Shanna Wilson, Licensed Massage Therapist
