Doctor Richard Westbrook D.C., Chiropractor in Monterey, CA
“Amazing” best describes my personal experience as a Chiropractic patient. In high school, low back pain limited my ability to run track. After only my first week of care, I won the next race. Three months later, the miserable allergies I had were dramatically reduced. I soon realized the power of a Chiropractic adjustment and the innate ability of the body to heal itself when free from nerve interference.
I studied pre-med at Cuesta College before I was accepted at Palmer College of Chiropractic-West in San Jose, California. During my four years at Palmer, I studied the Art, Science and Philosophy of Chiropractic. This rigorous curriculum not only prepared me academically, it also inspired me to have a lifelong passion for learning about ways to better serve my patients.
In practice, my objectives are to address all of your health concerns by performing a very thorough history and evaluation. I will then sit down and explain what is wrong, how I can help, how long it will take, and how much it will cost. I use a wide variety of techniques that are designed to get you well as fast as possible. I work best with people who are very committed to being well and staying well.
On a more personal note, I met my future wife and colleague, Dr. Cynthia Martin-Westbrook while at Palmer (Wow! A degree and a wife!). After graduation in 1991, we immediately went into private practice in Monterey. We have two wonderful daughters that we are very proud of. And yes, we adjust each other and the kids regularly.
My personal activities include Kendo (Japanese art of swordsmanship), Improv, running, and Toastmasters. I also host the "Your Health" Radio & Television Program on the second Monday of the month at 4:00pm on cable television AMP Media channel 24 and KNRY 1240 AM.
