Dr. Richard Davidson, DC

Dr. Richard Davidson started his health career as a massage therapist in 1985. For seven years he worked as the massage therapist for Ivan Lendl, the world's number 1 ranked tennis player and winner of 7 grand slam events. In 1990 he graduated from New York Chiropractic College and in 1992 he became a board certified chiropractic sports practitioner (CCSP).

Dr. Davidson has used his unique combination of massage therapy and chiropractic to treat thousands of athletes over the past 27 years. Olympic gold medalist Jenny Thompson (swimming), Million Wolde (track) and Christine Tuescher (swimming) have all been under his care. His interest in chiropractic began when he was a young boy. He would accompany his mom to her monthly chiropractic visits and would be adjusted by Dr. Guarino when he was run down, sick, or suffering from the structural imbalances caused by his active sports participation.

Dr. Davidson was an All-State swimmer while at New Rochelle High School in the mid 70's. He earned an athletic scholarship to the University of North Carolina and was selected by the Educational Foundation as the team's Most Outstanding Senior Swimmer. He now swims on a Masters team, rides his mountain bike and does yoga regularly.

He is past president of the New York Chiropractic Council's District 5, which includes Westchester, Bronx and Rockland Counties. He and his wife Mary live in New Rochelle and they have four children and six grandchildren.
