Dr. Rick Madsen has been in practice for 31 years. He grew up in Utah County, 2nd oldest of 7 in a single parent home with his mom. He served in the US Army from 1972-75 as a light air defense electronics system repairman working on heat seeking missiles and radar lock-on firing systems. After his mother died in 1974 from breast cancer, his Aunt Maurine and Uncle Kay adopted two of brothers and three sisters. He has always had an interest in architecture and wood-working. He remodeled fire damaged homes for a short period after serving in the army. While completing his credentials at the University of Utah he worked as an electronic technician for Sperry Univac until 1982. He then attended Palmer College of Chiropractic-West until he graduated in 1986.
A mild fender bender in 1975 was responsible for Dr. Madsen to change his major form architect to chiropractic. After one month, a medical doctor could not help his neck pain and headaches, but after only 3 chiropractic treatments, he was completely relieved of his symptoms and has had no problems since.This had a huge impression on Dr Madsen and was the reason for changing his major.
His philosophy of care: He works with an attitude that your spinal health is his utmost concern. With simple exercises, nutrition and regular chiropractic care most people can have a life time of pain free spinal health.
His motto: Every vertebra, Every patient, Every time.
