Meet the Doctor
Dr. Ronald O. Cooper
Dr. Ronald Cooper was born into a Chiropractic family on July 30, 1955. His entire life he was taught a belief system that health comes from “with in” the body, not out side of it. That God made the body to be a self healing organism. If anything got in way of your body healing itself, you just removed that interference and with time it would recover. That is the belief system he still has today, which led him to become a Doctor of Chiropractic and one that is applied to his professional and personal life.
He began his journey in 1973 in a pre-Chiropractic curriculum at Lindsey Wilson Jr. College in Columbia, Kentucky. He then moved on to Western Kentucky University before enrolling in Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1975. He graduated in 1978 with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After passing National boards and the Kentucky entrance tests, he received his license to practice in 1978.
After a short stint working with his father in Russell Springs, the office in Somerset was opened in January of 1979. The office is still open in the same location 38 years later. Since that time, there have been numerous continuing education courses with classes in radiology, practice management, manipulative techniques, orthopedics, etc.
In June of 1978, Ron married Sheryl Lynch of Davenport, Iowa. They have 3 children, Ashley, David, and Hollie. One of his hobbies include following UK basketball.
Dr. Ron, as many patients call him, has been on several Chiropractic mission trips to Vietnam, helping to introduce Chiropractic into their health care culture.
After all these years, Ron still has a passion for helping people to return to health thru Chiropractic. He recently stated that, “Educating our community about the benefits of Chiropractic is more important today than it was when I began practicing those many years ago.”
Ron still gets up 5 days a week to come to work. If you are having pain and suffering, maybe you should give someone like Dr. Ron a call. Dr. Ron and Chiropractic might be the “Perfect Combination” for you.
