About Cobb Rehab Wellness
Cobb Rehab Wellness has been serving patients in the Tampa Bay community since 2008. We are conveniently located at 4205 E. Busch Blvd, 2 miles from USF and a short walk to Busch Gardens. We are not your average Chiropractic Clinic! We take pride in providing quality care by meeting the individual needs of all of our patients. When you are suffering from soft tissue injuries, there’s nothing a hospital or medical doctor can do except prescribe pain medication. This will relieve the pain, temporarily. We strongly believe that an approach utilizing Integrative Medicine is essential in treating the patient. We work hand in hand with medical doctors and understand the use and necessity for prescription medication to help fight diseases and relieve pain. We advocate complementary medicine such as Chiropractic and Physical Therapy to help your body heal for a speedy recovery with minimal or zero use of drugs. We have patients that come as far as Orlando, Sarasota and even North Florida to treat at Cobb Rehab & Wellness.
There are many individuals who are not familiar with chiropractic or have a fear of being ‘cracked’. At Cobb Rehab & Wellness, you are in control of your care. If you don’t want to be cracked, there will be no chiropractic adjustments, no surprises! Some patients, including those with severe soft tissue injuries, are not good candidates for a chiropractic adjustment. We offer a highly effective alternative treatment, CTR (Connective Tissue Release). Dr. Cobb and our therapists have over 500 hours of extensive training combined through John Barnes Myofascial Release. Dr. Cobb introduced this therapy to the clinic in 2014 when he was frustrated when our patients were needing more than just an ‘adjustment’. Just as compelling, after a major hip injury, when Dr. Cobb wasn’t healing with Chiropractic care only, CTR was a savior for him. Our patients will agree that CTR integrated with Chiropractic care produces quicker recovery and longer lasting pain-free results. For specific details on CTR, check out our ‘Services’ section. What you need and what you want are certainly offered to you at Cobb Rehab & Wellness. We are not your average Chiro Clinic.
Meet Dr. Gregory Cobb
Dr. Cobb was born and raised in Tampa FL. Aside from a few years attending college elsewhere, he has been a lifelong resident of Tampa. He graduated from the University of Tampa with a degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. He is a proud graduate of the esteemed Palmer Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL and received his doctorate of Chiropractic in 2007. Dr. Cobb is a Florida Board Certified Chiropractic Physician with additional credentials as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) through the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians (ABCSP). When he started treating Auto Accident Injury patients, Dr. Cobb sought additional education and training in Whiplash and Traumatic Brain Injury in order to effectively treat these specialized injuries. Dr. Cobb is a huge Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan. He attended every game of the Bucs’ very first season in 1976 at the Big Sombrero. When he heard that Tom Brady was coming to play for the Buccaneers, he was so excited he reached out to our local artist and commissioned a gigantic mural to welcome Tom Brady and honor the Buccaneers. When driving on E. Busch Blvd, you can’t miss our Tampa Bay Buccaneers mural. We see hundreds of visitors stopping by to take selfies and videos. Buccaneers fans are invited to do the same. Dr. Cobb comes from a long line of successful Tampa business owners starting back in 1970 when his father and uncle opened their business in the heart of Tampa Bay.
Dr. Cobb’s Personal Story on Injury Recovery, Chiropractic and CTR:
I was introduced to chiropractic after suffering from debilitating back pain due to a work related injury. The pain was so severe that I couldn’t even drive myself to the doctor’s office. The care and treatment I received allowed me to return to work and my active lifestyle in a very short time. I wasn’t even aware of chiropractic and was just amazed that I was relieved of my pain without prescription medication or surgery! This was a life and career changing experience for me. My passion has always been to help people and I love working with my hands. After continued chiropractic care and meeting a dynamic chiropractor, Dr. Jeff Davis, I was inspired to pursue a profession as a chiropractor. I reinjured my back while I was in professional school. I tried everything that I had been taught but was only able to manage the pain. So I lived with lower back pain going down my legs for eight years. In 2014, I took a twenty hour course with renowned physical therapist, John Barnes, and it completely changed the way I view recovery and the human body. Today, I see how the importance of treating the connective tissue, integrated with Chiropractic care produces a quicker recovery and far lasting results. I have to give all credit and thanks to God for laying this path for me because in 2016 I had a total hip replacement and the following year, I was diagnosed with cancer. I attribute my quick recovery to CTR and chiropractic. I was on the golf course after 10 days post hip surgery and I could never have survived months of chemotherapy and radiation and continued to work daily while raising my son if it wasn’t for CTR. Today I’m golfing as often as I can (pain free!) and thrilled to share that I’m cancer free.
