Meet Dr. Richard Archer

Male placeholder imageDr. Richard Archer has a different approach to chiropractic. He believes in treating your whole body, not just the symptoms. With hands-on, personal interaction, we find the source of your pain and address it.

Dr. Richard works to develop a partnership where the patient and the provider are equally invested in your care. Our goal is to help you get better and learn how to manage your health for a lifetime.

Dr. Richard knew chiropractic was his future after a severe shoulder injury while at Western University. Being unable to participate in sports activities was devastating. He did everything the medical team advised – X-rays, MRIs, months of physiotherapy.

With minimal improvement, and still in a lot of pain, a friend referred him to a local chiropractor. That referral was life-changing. The chiropractor changed how Dr. Richard viewed his injury. He showed how unaddressed issues in his neck and upper back were actually causing his pain.

After 3 weeks of treatment, Dr. Richard experienced a significant reduction in pain. He was also able to participate in some activities as well. In time, treatment helped him to regain his range of motion and get back to sports.

He also found the informal, welcoming atmosphere in the practice to be appealing. Safe and comfortable, it provided an environment where healing could happen. Intrigued, Dr. Richard did some research on chiropractic and knew he had found his calling.
