Dr. Richard Johnson, or as he is otherwise known as Dr. Rick, is one of our highly experienced chiropractors in Goodyear, Arizona. He grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado but moved shortly after his high school graduation. Dr. Rick moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to attend North Central University. A few years later, he graduated with his Bachelors in Business Administration.
After spending several years in the corporate world, Dr. Rick realized that he was missing something in his life. He looked toward the inspiring people in his life. In doing so, Dr. Rick found Dr. Jeff Danielson. Dr. Danielson is the owner of Northern Life Chiropractic in Savage, MN. Dr. Danielson was highly regarded within the community due to how many people he has helped under his care.
Soon after talking with Dr. Danielson, Dr. Rick enrolled in chiropractic school. Dr. Rick attended Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. Here he acquired his Doctorate of Chiropractic.
He participated in two clinical internships. The first one was at Advanced Medical of Twin Cities, an integrated medical clinic in Golden Valley, Minnesota. His second one was at Hopkins Chiropractic in Hopkins, Minnesota.
Dr. Rick became a strong believer in the integration medical model after his clinical internship experience. When he moved to Arizona, he heard good things about BackFit Health + Spine and was interested in their integrated care model.
When he is not working with patients, He enjoys spending time with his wife Dawna, son Kyrie and daughter Kinsley. He and his family enjoy exploring all that Arizona has to offer including restaurants, parks, pools, splash pads, and zoos. Dr. Rick is also an adrenaline junkie that is always up for an adventure.
