Dr. Richard P. Amon – Amon Chiropractic Center P.C.
Dr. Amon grew up with Chiropractic care in Fort Worth Texas. As a child the only time I went for medical care was for stitches. When I was sick I would get an adjustment from my Dad. He graduated from Texas Chiropractic College in 1948 and I graduated from TCC in 1984. I practiced with him for 4 years and came to Utah in 1988. I have been in the present location for over 26 years. My wife of 32 years Virginia passed away 5 years ago.
I have been married to Jan for 4 years. She came to work in the office 3 years ago. Patients love being greeted by her cheerful personality, southern accent and beautiful smile. Since coming to Utah I have been involved in going to state association meetings and been involved with the board. I was involved when the UCA joined with the UACP to form the UCPA. I have enjoyed being involved with great Chiropractors in Utah. I have filled in to offices of Chiropractors that have been injured or out of practice. I have enjoyed friendships with fellow Chiropractors and being able to stop into offices to get adjusted no matter which part of the state I am in. Locally I get adjusted by my Chiropractor and we play basketball 3-4x a week. We travel to seminars, conventions, meetings and benefit from sharing information and working on each other.
I enjoy golfing with Jan, playing coed volleyball weekly with Jan, bicycle riding with Jan and Chiropractor friends, basketball, and Jan & I work out at Gold’s Gym 3-4x a week. We feel that life is motion and we enjoy staying fit and enjoying life.
I love working with Chiropractic patients. Our office strives hard to put the “care” back into “Healthcare”. I love working with our wellness patients that come in regularly for tuneups. Rather than just adjust I enjoy using a variety of techniques from so many seminars over the 30 years of practice. I enjoy finding imbalances and helping the body heal itself. I work with Diversified Technique, applied kinesiology, kinesiotaping, pain neutralization technique, SOT, Leander Flexion Distraction, Thompson Drop Technique, Activator, Neuromechanical technique, Brimhall, MRT, Cranial adjusting, extremity adjusting the hands, feet, shoulders, hips etc.
It is amazing to me how the “Power that made the Body can Heal the Body” if we remove the interference that comes at us. It is wonderful to adjust the spine to stimulate the nervous system and see great things can happen. I love seeing patients limp into the office and walk out smoothly, to come in with pain and the weight of the world on them and left without pain and so much more enthusiasm and hope to enjoy life has been a wonderful gift.
