Dr. Fox is more than a chiropractor. He is a genuine, caring person that is not only willing to take the extra steps necessary to get his patients better, but also has the abilities to do it. He is one of those rare doctors that I am glad to call a colleague. Thank you Dr. Fox for your service to our profession

Dr Fox is one of the best in the business and his knowledge of sports injuries and medicine is extensive. He takes amazing care of all of us LA Derby Dolls!

I first met Dr. Rick in 2007 when I worked alongside him for the LA Derby Dolls. He did his chiro thing, and I stretched them out a la Thai Yoga Massage. Since then we’ve remained colleagues, and he is a wealth of information about health care, and a steadfast, awesome chiropractor. You will find he’s very easy-going, personable, and a super nice guy! Read bout his experience with Olympic medalists and professional athletes.
I finally needed to see Dr. Rick with the occupational hazard that massage therapist get: over-worked thumbs. You don’t realize how much work your opposable thumbs do until the joints start hurting, and everything you use your hands for — gripping a mug, pressing a zip-lock baggie, buttoning your clothes — hurts like a mofo! That’s on top of all the years of Thai Yoga Massage work, so my hands were severely abused.
Dr. Rick assessed the rotation and movement of my jacked-up thumbs, and with some soft-tissue work, released the sprain (yes, I’d sprain them!!). My thumb joints immediately went, “Ahhhhhhhhhhh!” and the achiing and throbbing stopped. He worked the joint with Chinese herbs to help the inflammation, and I got to dip my hands in paraffin (another “Ahhh” moment). Then he carefully taped them so the thumb joints wouldn’t move in any compromised fashion.

Dr. Fox came recommended by an entire roller derby league, and those ladies get hardcore injured, so their seal of approval really means something.
For a school health center, the building is quite pleasant, new, and professional; you don’t have to be a student for their services, either. Seeing as it’s a school, Dr. Fox and I weren’t alone; four interns observed and asked questions. A little unnerving, but since my problem was with my lower back, I got to keep all my clothes on, so whatever.
I’d never seen a chiropractor, so I didn’t know what to expect, but Dr. Fox really put me at ease and assured me right away that he’s not the sort of doctor who has a client come in for months; he fixes his clients in as little time as possible and sends them on their way. He took a detailed account of my injury, asked about my past, and had me stand and stretch a bunch of different ways to help pinpoint where my problem was, then did some more tests while I laid down. Lots of testing after he crunched me up some to see where I still hurt and if the pain had moved. Sympathetic when I winced or yelped.
And whaddya know, my back felt much better! It was pretty exciting. Dr. Fox told me to come back if I needed him again, and he’d see me at derby practices. No big deal, and I felt confident about his services.

Dr. Rick is amazing! I’ve always been a bit skeptical of chiropractors, but my sister had been raving about Dr. Rick for months and months. And this was before I even had an injury! She had mentioned that aside from being a great individual overall, he works with the philosophy that if he can get you fixed and out of there in one visit, he will. He’s not a chiropractor for the business of building repeat clients. He’s there to fix the problem so that you can move on and get back to doing your usual activities.
I had some bizarre ankle pain while training for the LA Marathon. After a 20 mile training run, I felt like I could no longer run on my ankle. I let it rest for a couple of weeks and it didn’t get any better. I was still determined to finish the marathon but wasn’t sure how I’d get through the pain. I was a little hesitant to get it checked out because of my financial situation and because I tend to avoid health professionals when possible. But with two weeks to go before marathon day, I finally gave in to my sister’s nagging and made an appointment with Dr. Rick. My only regret is not listening to her sooner! With the KT tape that Dr. Rick used on my ankle, I was able to get through the race. He patiently showed me how to tape myself up so that I could do it before my runs and after that one visit, I am a huge fan of Dr. Rick! I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I had never been to a Chiro before…and then I joined Roller Derby. 😉
Needless to say, after getting knocked around and hit into the rail on a 3-4x a week basis for the last 6+ years has made me a huge fan of Chiropractors, especially Dr. Rick who has been working on me since I joined derby. Dr. Rick is an expert! He’s great at adjustments, massage, and sports specific taping. He helped me rehab my shoulder from an injury in 2007, he’s helped me with lots of whiplash to my neck and keeps me at the top of my game with neck and back adjustments on a regular basis. Big thanks Dr. Rick

I found Dr. Rick Fox to be one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate doctors I have ever worked with. HIs understanding of anatomy and biomechanics, combined with his years of experience working with world class athletes and musicians, made him the perfect match for helping me heal my work related injuries. After taking an extensive medical history, he focused on deep tissue work followed by spinal adjustments. He also applied kinesiology tape for stability and support. Dr. Fox is one of those rare doctors that is equally comfortable working alongside traditional western doctors, surgeons, acupuncturists, and physical therapists. He sees the whole picture and treats accordingly. I highly recommend Dr. Fox.
Dr. Rick is one of our amazing league chiropractors with the Derby Dolls. He is excellent with sports injuries and other orthopedic issues. He is extremely knowledgeable, expert at dealing with muscle trauma and use of kinetic tape and other taping skills to help with injury. Dr. Rick is also a blast to be around. 🙂
Now a lot of people out there pooh-pooh chiropractic. Had I not been active in a sport that introduced me to it, I probably would not have sought it out on my own. I went a few times in college to a chiropractor and found it to be unremarkable.
However now that I’ve been under Dr. Rick’s care for more than two years I can say that I’m a very fortunate girl. To the outside observer, his quick “rack and crack,” process appears to be simple, but seriously, lemme tell you there is absolutely nothing in the world as priceless as the pure relief from pain, which is what his adjustment can bring. The amount of knowledge in the hands of Dr. Rick when he makes a diagnosis and checks alignment is something that can only be acquired from decades of experience.
Last week during a roller derby practice I was involved in a collision with a rookie skater who slid into me without me anticipating the fall because she was behind me. For a week I suffered whiplash, vertigo, and a sore “stuck” neck from inflamed muscles tightening down and crunching, preventing me from nodding my head forward. Fast-forward to six days later to Dr. Rick’s table, he had me adjusted and fixed so quickly I wanted to cry from the immediate relief. It was precious bliss and instant gratification. Not a lot of that can be found in the world!
Also of note, Dr. Rick is always studying and improving and adding things to his arsenal- he is also a master of the art of KT taping, and I know he has some knowledge of herbs and tons of other tricks up his sleeve. and, he loves dogs so you know he is a good one. Thank you Dr. Rick

As good as it gets! Dr. Rick is the best!

Dr. Rick Fox has been treating me with patience and care this past year. He alleviated my years of chronic headaches at my first visit. He works diligently to obtain the correct diagnosis of my chronic pain syndrome. After careful studying of my medical history, he requested several blood tests to rule out other possible syndromes and tried different approaches to relieve my headache as well as my neck, shoulders, and back pain. He has used kinesiology tapes to provide support for my joints and reduce my shoulders pain. His professional and personable character makes me feel comfortable and trusted especially in the manipulation of the alignment and adjustment of my spine. His knowledge in the musculoskeletal structures and functions of the nervous system are valuable. He had shown me some physical and aquatic exercises so that I can perform stretching therapies on my own. I have referred friends to visit him and they have also experienced wonderful results. You’re awesome, Dr. Fox!

In recent months I went to Dr. Fox for stabbing pain in my right leg that caused me to limp with pressure on my knee. Dr. Fox listened to my story, checked my body alignment, and started massaging my knee. He put pressure with his fingers into the knee, pushing into the painful spots. This went on for several minutes, then he asked me to get up and walk towards him. I could not believe it! I walked towards him with no grinding, nor stabbing in my knee at all! Before this, I had knee pain for months, with my internist at the hospital giving me endless pain medicines, with no real results. But now my knee feels as if it has been put back in place!!! I haven’t had to wear a knee brace, nor take any horse pills since. And he did it all with a smile!!! The Man knows his stuff!!!!
Love me some Dr. Fox!

I’ve been seeing Dr Rick for a adjustments and he can do a mean tape up job too!
I’ve had him tape me up before a game and that little bit can go a long way. Especially if it’s done right like he does. I’ve had him look at my sprained thumb, a bum ankle, my knee problems, shoulder pain and the occasional muscle soreness.
And just last week, he did some awesome chiropractor work. I am so going to him again for that! I trust him and feel very comfortable

Now I’m a believer! Chiropractic really works!! Especially in the hands of Dr. Rick Fox (no, not the basketball player)- this one is better! You can ask Vanessa Williams that too!! 😉 If you’re are looking for a great chiropractor or in need of an adjustment, see Dr. Fox!
I come to Dr. Fox for evaluation of the knee surgery for meniscus torn a few years ago. I told him I don’t want do the surgery, I believe there is other way to ease my knee pain, Dr. Fox explained to me how the meniscus pain occur, and he is willing to work with me if I am. After 6 visits both my knee swollen and pain gone, Dr. Fox released me and gave a very clear instruction how to take care my knee. It is amazing, my knee pain never come back since. If you have knee problem Dr. Fox is the best in the best. I am highly recommend Dr. Fox to anyone. Thank you Dr. Fox!
I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Fox. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received.
As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Dr. Fox and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement.
I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Fox. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine – golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible.
Dr. Fox has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside.
It’s been 7 months since I got wiped out by a monster wave. I sought treatment at the hospital and they took x-rays and said everything seemed normal, that I would just have some pain for a few days. A few days actually turned into several weeks, so at the suggestion of my girlfriend, I went to see Dr. Fox and was feeling better in no time!
