It All Began With Cousin Ed

While growing up, Dr. Rick always looked up to his older cousin, Ed. Ed was very popular at family gatherings because he was an experienced chiropractor. Dr. Rick would watch as aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, moms, sisters and brothers all lined up at family reunions for a chance to be adjusted.

“One day my Aunt Helen whispered to me that she thought I should be a chiropractor someday, too, just like Cousin Ed. Well, that suggestion became stuck in my head; I knew that someday that’s exactly what I was going to do.”

An Unwavering Desire to Help Others

Dr. Rick received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri. During the first semester of his studies, he was fascinated to learn how the nervous system controls and coordinates every function in the body. He began to understand how a misalignment in the spine could interfere with that function by pinching off specific nerves. The corresponding areas that were controlled by those nerve signals would then begin to get sick. This breakdown in function is common when critical messages from the brain to the body can’t get through.

I learned to look at symptoms from an entirely different viewpoint. I realized that pain was just a warning signal of a malfunction in the body. My years of study helped me to quickly determine whether the symptom came from a physical problem or a chemical dysfunction.”

Always Eager to Learn

Throughout his decades of practice, Dr. Rick has completed hundreds of hours of postgraduate study, including advanced X-ray studies and acupuncture training.

He’s also a graduate of the Parker Research Foundation and has served as the former secretary and current member of the Tennessee Chiropractic Association. Dr. Rick is also the author of the highly regarded book “The Cure Lies Within.”
