Dr. Richard W. Knipping
We are very excited to welcome Dr. Rich Knipping to our practice. He is an excellent chiropractor with 10 years experience working with patients of all types and ages. He is from Winterport, Maine, and went to college in Massachusetts before going to New York Chiropractic College (where Dr. Johnson went) in upstate New York.
Dr. Rich has been an athlete virtually his whole life, and is passionate about the human body being able to operate at its best. Chiropractic is a vital part of that, he points out, and so is fitness and nutrition. He is expert in all three areas. Dr. Rich is proficient in multiple adjusting techniques, ART (Active Resistive Technique), and NIMMO trigger point release work. He works with Kinesiotape as well. And he is a genuinely nice guy
When he’s not in the office he’s often at a gym. He is a competitive CrossFit athlete and coach, and a USA Weightlifting Performance Coach. He travels from Alaska to Newfoundland to participate in multi-day snowmobile adventure racing, and is the 2010 champion of Cain’s Quest in Labrador. He enjoys hiking, fishing, mountain biking and skiing as well. In his earlier days he played baseball, football and rugby.
His experience in sports has taught him the importance of never giving up. He brings that mantra to patient care, too, and is committed to doing what ever is needed to help each patient gain optimum results. He loves working with seniors and families and everyone in between.
We are very lucky to have him join us here at Gardiner Family Chiropractic!
