Our neuropathic therapy and treatments are some of only a handful in the country, and have proven to effectively restore damaged nerves, joints, and other painful health conditions. Dr. Richards has unique training with an emphasis on extremity care (feet, wrists, ankles), in addition to years of spine and joint education and clinical practice. We are aware that nerve regeneration is complex and that there is no one-size-fits-all treatment, so our doctors cater their treatments to serve the unique needs of each of our patients.
