Dr. Richard Duenas

Welcome to my practice. I am pleased to meet and provide you with natural and evidenced based chiropractic health care. I am pleased to address a wide variety of conditions which may afflict you and your family. Such conditions may result from athletic events, auto accidents, work or any of life’s encounters.

There are so many reasons for ill health. There are also many opportunities to address and correct states of illness through natural and effective methods of care. The challenge in my practice is to provide the appropriate treatment (adjustments, dietary counseling, nutrient treatment, exercise therapy, physical therapy) for your specific and unique condition. It is this challenge which keeps me inspired to provide a variety of treatments and pursue continuing education in such fields as neurology, sports medicine and primary care.

I want you to know that I will pursue a simple, organized and effective approach to address your health care needs in a reasonable period of time. I will utilize a varied approach to your health care incorporating traditional and contemporary chiropractic physical treatments along with dietary and nutrient treatments. I may suggest certain supplies such as cervical pillows, orthotics and exercise equipment to compliment your care.

Please keep me informed of your specific health concerns and let me know how your condition is responding to treatment. Chiropractic health care is a process for me to establish an understanding of how your body responds to treatment and your activities of daily living. Your response to care helps determine when and if modifications to treatment are required. Get involved with improving your health naturally. You’ll be proud of your achievement.
