Born and raised in University Place, Washington. Attended Eastern Washington University on an Athletic Scholarship. Received his Doctorate in Chiropractic at Western State Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. After graduating, he returned to Tacoma and started his practice at Raymond Chiropractic.
Over the last 32 years, he has maintained a diverse family practice. He has also been the team doctor to many sports teams including the Tacoma Sabercats Hockey team and the Pierce County Bengals Football Team. He has also worked with the Tacoma Dome to treat many band/concert members over the years.
I started visiting Dr. Raymond about 5 months ago when I developed a mystery pain in my leg in addition to a very sore back. I immediately loved the whole place, from the cheerful and pleasant ladies who staff the front desk and keep calm in the often-full (but quickly processed!) waiting area. Dr. Raymond has done wonders for me. I went in once and mentioned some minor rib pain from a years-ago sports accident; Dr. Raymond made one adjustment and the pain was gone. We also were working together to get my mystery leg pain dealt with and he's been a tireless advocate for me the whole way through, pushing for me to request some procedures my general physician wasn't too sure about. Every visit to him leaves me feeling hopeful and encouraged, and because he's just so much fun, I always feel uplifted! Dr. Raymond's a great guy, someone you could definitely go say hi to if you saw him at a restaurant. I'd HIGHLY recommend him and his entire facility!
This office is amazing. Very flexible on scheduling, therapy ,etc. I recommend this office to anyone. My speedy recovery was due to them.
When I came to Raymond Chiropractic, at only twenty three years old, I could not stand up straight. Walking was difficult and working out was impossible. Now I am back to my energetic self and I work out every day! I am even performing at my job better because it no longer hurts to be on my feet for hours on end. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone with back problems!
Low back pain is a chronic pain, it's very easy to pop pills for pain relief. But the relief is short lived and has unwanted side effects. Dr. Raymond is helping me maintain a healthy and energetic life style by providing instant relief that lasts and is affordable. Appointments are made on same day for pain control. If I just call in for appointment verification, they make sure that an appointment is needed for pain relief before confirming the scheduled appointment. Being a former athlete, I'm learning Dr. Raymond's motto "IN PAIN, NO GAIN". Our lives are in flux, and so should be our treatment plan. I've been pain free for long periods of time, and when my L1-L3 area begins pinching, I return back for not only a back subluxation treatment but time is spent on what is going on in my life and the treatment plan is adjusted. Dr. Raymond includes a healthy home treatment plan also. This type of chronic pain management is cheaper than popping pills. Pain pills are expensive and so is the treatment for their side effects. I tried physical therapy, but uncontrolled low back pain persisted. Next step was facing surgery. If any one struggling with chronic low back pain, consider Raymond Chiropractic.
I have been a patient for several years. I haven't been a consistent patient though, but when I need to see Dr. Rick, they have always made arrangements to get me in within in a couple of days, many times, that same day. I receive excellent care and support from Dr. Rick and the staff.
Always there to help and your health is their number one priority.
I have been seeing Dr. Raymond since my birthday March 6th, 2013 when I had my accident. When scheduling an appt with him, I scheduled with Kathrina. Her tone and conversation I had with her made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. (Mind you I was coming from another chiropractor who I had a bad experience with.) Coming in every 2-3x a week as I currently do I am always greeted by Kathrina & Dr. Raymond's thriving energy! They make me feel special and unique every time I go in. Dr. Raymond has been very gentle with me and I feel as if his services are a great benefit to my body & health. You should definitely go in and get a feel for the atmosphere. Feels like you're walking into a home with all your family!
He's the man with the healing hands! Honestly you couldn't be in better hands than with this doctor. I've seen a lot of chiropractors and he is the only one I've felt improvement with.
I've been seeing Dr. Raymond for about 1-year and he is the best, I highly recommend him to anybody if you have any back pain. If he can't fix it, nobody can trust me on that. The whole staff is very nice end they will work with you. I look forward to seeing him every month.
Thank you so much!!! Without their truly concern, I would not be walking. They saved my life!
For 4 years, I've been having backache until I met him and just about few visits, my backache is gone so I recommend him to anyone.
I had injured my back three years ago, I've been taking pain pills, but one day a friend advised me to try Raymond Chiropractic, after that I got my back fixed and I'm working again, no pain pills anymore.
