As you can imagine, Dr. Richard’s, DC services were dearly needed.

“Dr. Richard is a lifesaver! He has kept me out of the excruciating pain I had prior to his care. His staff is great, as well. I have also hugely benefited from the addition of laser therapy and the exercise regime that was prescribed.”

“I was feeling all locked up and fatigued from the long hours I was working to create the perfect new home for The O’Donnell Family while I was working in Austin. Thanks to Dr. Richard’s great adjustments, I felt much better and regained my energy! Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition cast and crew while we were in Austin.”
