Dr. Therkelsen's Care Philosophy

As a chiropractor, I treat patients the way I would to personally like be treated by a provider. That is, in a warm friendly office, convenient hours, no waiting, participation in insurance, no long drawn-out treatment plans, reasonable fees, and a doctor who is knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to help. I don't think that's too much to ask, and it's what I demand of my office. We see patients as family and strive to give them the best chiropractic experience possible.

in Old Bridge, NJ |
Unbelievable service for a very reasonable fee. Got a great adjustment, did in-office exercises to strengthen my back, and finished off with a massage on a hydro-table; all for $35. Staff is great... friendly, professional, and super helpful. Highly recommend this office.

Inconsiderate and diagnosed me incorrectly. Other chiropractors are better in the area.
I can't imagine who this patient is. I've been in practice for 38 years, always treat patients with utmost respect and professional care, and have thousands of happy patients. I invite this reviewer to contact me directly at 732 290-8950 to let me know what exactly he or she was unhappy about, and I will do my best to correct it. -Dr Rich Therkelsen

Dr. Therkelsen says...

Our focus is on the treatment of low back and leg pain/sciatica using the best and most effective modalities in chiropractic and physical therapy, including Spinal Decompression Therapy and Therapeutic Exercise equipment.  Our goal is to relieve pain and restore normal function as quickly and effectively as possible.  Of course, I also have training in general chiropractic care, so we treat most spine-related disorders. 

For commercial licensed drivers, I am a certified DOT Medical Examiner.  We perform required exams every Mon., Wed. and Fri. at a reasonable fee.

Dr. Therkelsen says...

In practice for over 35 years, Dr. Therkelsen is a Palmer graduate, trained in Lumbar Decompression Therapy at the Lordex Spine Institute in Houston, Texas, for the conservative/non-surgical treatment of low back pain and disc disorders.  Also certified by the Department of Transportation as Medical Examiner for Commercial Drivers.
