Meet The Doctor

dr_tyler_1_.jpgDr. Tyler M. Richards

Dr. Richards grew up in Milltown, NJ, where he went to Bishop George AHR High in Edison NJ. After completeing HS, he went to West Virginia University and received his BS degree in Exercise Physiology from the School of Medicine. Upon graduating from WVU he knew that he had to continue his education and based on knowing the values of exercise on human health and well-being he had intentions of getting a PhD in Exercise Physiology where he wanted to do more research on the effects of exercise on the human body.

After a debilitating car accident had left him bed ridden with electrical shock shooting into his body, he was faced with taking medications and surgery to alleviate the presssure on the nervous system. Being educated about how the body works, he knew there had to be something else he could do. His sister worked for a chiropractor at the time, and suggested he "give it a try." As a skeptic, just like a lot of people, he was thinking "how in the world could twisting my body into different positions help MY situation"; but he was facing the surgeon's knife. About one month into his treatment program he was back on his feet and most of his ailments had resolved themselves. After that he knew what he needed to do for humanity. He attended Life Chiropractic School in Marietta, GA about 3 months after his accident. He received a Doctorate in Chiropractic and after graduation moved back to NJ to bring his great healing art back to his community that he grew up in.

Dr. Richards is a gentle, caring and highly experienced chiropractor. He has over 10 years of experience in treating patients with chronic or acute back, neck, shoulder, sciatic nerve and extremity pain. You will get Chiropractic care at his office. There will be no sugar coating with different therapies. Dr. Richards makes a conscious effort to explain things completely, to ensure his patients understand why he does what he does, and are comfortable with his treatment. He will correct the bony structure, that houses the nervous system, and by doing so the function of the body increases to its maximum potential. Health and healing are an inherent right; sickness, disease and symptoms are a result of not nurturing and taking care of the body.

Testimonial

  • "I've been coming to Dr. Richard's office for the past 3 months. In my opinion you are like an angel. I used to take sleeping pills for my neck pain and insomnia. Since I started treatment with you, I no longer have to take sleeping pills or muscle relaxers to sleep. Now I am pain free and seem to have more energy. I never felt as free from neck pain as I do now. I thank you so much fir being an excellent and knowledgeable healer."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
