The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce is excited to welcome Caribou Chiropractic and Massage. Dr. Todd Richards and his wife Kimberly Richards opened Caribou Chiropractic and Massage in February at 513 N Fourth Avenue in Sandpoint, next to the K2 Inn. They offer chiropractic adjustments through various methods including electric stimulation, ultrasound, drop table and diversified techniques and massage therapy.
After traveling through North Idaho going to rodeos as a young adult, Dr. Richards longed to settle down and call this area home. Last fall, the Richards’ visited Sandpoint and returned two months later with all of their belongings. Their focus was to bring affordable care to the area so locals could enjoy their services. The outdoors allows them to do all the things they love: camping, biking, fishing and hunting.
‘Everyone in Sandpoint is so welcoming and friendly,’ said Kimberly. ‘We have enjoyed meeting community members, getting involved in the Chamber, and I’ve joined the Chamber’s Women In Business and Sandpoint Rotary.’
Caribou Chiropractic and Massage’s philosophy is to start slow by analyzing the patients’ pain, explaining their body and customizing a treatment plan. They use gentle adjustments and empathize with patients during the treatment. They promote their emphasis on working with doctors and other health care professionals when developing a patient’s treatment plan to maximize the patient’s success.
First time visits to Dr. Richards cost $60 and all subsequent visits are only $40. They do not require x-rays and do not bill or accept health insurance to keep it more affordable for their patients. Their staff will happily deal directly with your auto insurance company in the case of auto accident claims. Massage therapy includes full body, sport and deep tissue massage and brief clinical massages which focus on certain areas of pain or tension which Dr. Richards will work on. The cost for massages is very affordable: $25 half hr. They make it easy to add them onto your adjustment to focus on the treatment area.
Dr. Richards started his own practice in 2010 in Lockhart, Texas after graduating from Parker Chiropractic College in Dallas, Texas. Kimberly left the banking world as an auditor and joined her husband in the office. She’s recently completed her schooling and received her license and certification for massage therapy. She’s also nationally certified in equine massage, since 2011, which made massage therapy a natural fit.
Please help the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce welcome Caribou Chiropractic and Massage to the Chamber and wish them success. Their office hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 9am-noon and 2pm-5pm, Tuesdays from 9am-noon and Saturday by appointment only. For more information, visit them at their office 513 N Fourth Avenue, at their website www.caribouchiropractic.com or call them at 877-633-2695.
