While Mr. Dix was also under the careful training of Coach Rey Robinson, Dr. Rhee helped Mr. Dix earn 1st place in both the 100-meter and 200-meter run at the USA Track and Field Championship (Eugene, Oregon). Furthermore, also in 2011, at the World Championship in Daegu, South Korea, Dr. Rhee traveled with Mr. Dix to be his medical personnel.

Walter Dix continued to treat under Dr. Rhee’s care to prepare for the 2016 Olympics.
Back in 2008, Dr. Rhee moved back to Tampa to open his Florida practice. Coming from California, he brought with him a new West Coast approach to chiropractic care. Many Tampa residents, after being treated by Dr. Rhee, admit to Dr. Rhee being a one-of-a-kind doctor with incredibly unique approaches they have never seen or felt before. It became a major goal of his to continue that legacy in the Tampa bay area.
