The Doctor

Richard A.Lawson D.C.

After serving in the infantry in Vietnam I enrolled in C.U.N.Y. and recieved my bachelors degree in biology. I entered Chiropractic college (Life University Georgia) and graduated in 1983. I started my practice in Vernon and subsequently opened an additional office in Oak Ridge. I have taken numerous post graduate courses to keep abreast of current research in the health care field. I have expertise in the extremities and nutrition as well as the spine.

I am an avid gardener and refers to my garden as the “farmacy” I enjoy spending time with my family as well as golfing, running, reading, traveling and hiking.

I have been very fortunate to have a successful practice in my home community for over 25 years. I believe that a persons body has the ability to be healthy, given the right set of conditions: Proper spinal alignment,good nutrition and a positive mental outlook.
