Dr. Rex W. Roffler
I (Dr. Roffler) began my pre-chiropractic education at MDJC and the University of Florida; where I studied the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses. After completing my study there, I was accepted at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. During my four years at Palmer, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Palmer College Public Clinic. After graduating in 1976 I moved to the Orlando area to establish my practice.
Special training includes the Palmer Technique, Gonstead Technique, Thompson Technique (and advanced Thompson terminal point drop tables), Pierce Technique, Bio-cranial Technique, Pediatric adjusting, and Instrument Adjusting – which is offered for the elderly, infants, or for the person that likes more gentle treatments. Additional training has been taken in Radiology, Nutrition, Automobile Accidents, and Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression.
For people who have confirmed disc herniations and or more severe neck and back problems and symptom – we offer Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression; this is in many cases a great alternative to drugs, injections and risky surgeries. In fact I am one of a small group of doctors across the United States that is nationally certified in Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression — along with being a Disc Centers of American office.

I would highly recommend the Disc Centers of America in Winter Park. First, my husband went there on crutches and walked out with no crutches after completing his recommended sessions. After my... husbands friend went through physical therapy with not much change, he went to my husbands Doctor. He loves coming back to the Disc Center for his decompression because he is playing golf again. After watching people come in to the office and seeing the transformation they went through, while I was waiting for my husband, I felt very confident they could take care of my back problems. Sure enough they did X-rays the day I went in and they recommended a mri to show exactly what was happening on my spine. The mri was expedited so I could keep my appointment today. The people there are so nice, knowledgeable and willing to personally see you through the pain you have until you receive what your body needs to be pain free. If you are thinking about decompression, my husband, his friend and I would highly recommend you go see them.read more
After many frustrated attempts to treat my low back pain, I arrived at this location in March 2023. Before my consultation, on the phone, Audrey was already concerned about my pain and recommended... that I put ice.Once I arrived there, Kay registered all my medical history. Dr. Roffler, who is deeply knowledgeable in my problem, tried to understand the patterns of my pain and listened to me attentively. After the RX, which is in the office, he ordered an MRI. Audrey, from the front desk, very attentive, promptly scheduled the MRI and took care to accommodate me in a place that assists patients with claustrophobia. The best MRI clinic I've been to today. With my result ready, a herniated disc and a bulging disc were identified by Dr. Roffler, who laid out a treatment plan.Since then, I've followed my treatment with decompressions, ice, supplements and a support belt. Today, 4 months later, my recovery is already 80% better. Every time I needed to report something different that I noticed in my back, I was always promptly attended.This is not the kind of place where you suffer frivolous medical invalidation or minimization of your pain. This is not any mechanized clinic where you are just a number. Even though they have a lot of patients, they treat you as family. Everything is carefully investigated. My pain that radiated to the leg and prevented me from walking no longer occurs and I am able to exercise.Moreover, everything is recorded, documented and carefully evaluated by a team of extremely competent women who work in a very organized way. Among the various tasks they perform, Audrey and Shirley take care of their schedule and all administrative matters. Kay carefully records every improvement you have beyond your back pain history, and Angie is the professional who accomodate us on the machine, know our protocol and even offers us a blanket. All are kind, loving, proactive. In addition to the long hours of work during the week, they spend long hours in advanced training on the weekends.In conclusion, this place goes far beyond ethics and professional competence. Disc Centers os America is truly committed to healing. As person that already was submitted to a back surgery because this treatment was not available in my country, I am very grateful. Thank you for everything.read more

As a physician I am critical of other professionals and wary of chiropractors. There has been an inconsistency in the past in training and services.I have waited to write this until I have had... significant experience.Now that I have observed Dr. Roffler and his staff for over 2 months, it is evident that he is a unique, skilled, and compassionate specialist. His initial assessment determined if treatment or additional studies are required. He has standard chiropractic techniques in addition to the Disc decompression technology. This seems to be exactly as advertised. Some of the other patients were sent by surgeons in an attempt to delay or prevent the need for an operation. Either way, an opinion from Dr. Roffler will be enlightening.read more
