Meet Dr. J.T. Richard

Dr J.T RichardDr. J. T. Richard’s connection with chiropractic care began in his early years, stemming from personal health challenges. As a child suffering from chronic ear infections and sleep disturbances, he experienced firsthand the remarkable effects of chiropractic care.

However, it was a severe traumatic brain injury at the age of 14 that truly shaped Dr. J.T.’s path. After he was put in a medically induced coma, chiropractic care played a pivotal role in his remarkable recovery, which was not necessarily expected.

I’m a big sign guy and that to me was a sign that being a chiropractor was what I was supposed to do.

Educational Background and Career Shift

Dr. J.T. first studied mechanical engineering at West Virginia University with the intent of taking that knowledge into a future career as a chiropractor.

Before going to chiropractic college, Dr. J.T. wanted to fulfill his passion for working with individuals dealing with substance abuse and mental health challenges. He worked as a counselor in that field for a few years here in Orange County, an area that he fell in love with.

Dr. J.T. then earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College West in the Bay Area. Ultimately, his path led him back to OC and he joined the Health Pro Wellness Center team.

A Passion for Making a Difference

My overall philosophy is ‘How can I make as big of a positive impact as possible?’ I see chiropractic as the safest, cheapest, and most direct way for me to help improve as many people’s quality of life as I can.

Life Beyond Chiropractic

When he’s not at the practice, Dr. J.T. is an avid basketball enthusiast. He also enjoys working out, hiking, camping, and going to the beach.
