Richard regularly attends post-graduate continuing-education programs on the treatment of individuals with sports injuries, chronic pain, motor vehicle accidents, post-surgical care, back pain, neck pain, and more. In addition, he is certified in the application of trigger point dry needling. He is passionate about providing the best care to every patient.

“I believe the best outcomes are achieved in physical therapy when the use of manual therapy (hands-on treatments) are used in conjunction with specific exercises. This combination relieves pain and corrects the underlying muscular dysfunction”, explains Richard.
