Finding Chiropractic

Meet Drs. Rick and Megan Erickson

Meet Drs. Rick and Megan Erickson

“I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin,” says Dr. Rick Erickson. “During high school and college I suffered numerous sports injuries and developed acute back pain while working on a farm.”

“I had already decided I wanted to become a medical doctor, but my experience with chiropractic changed that.”

“Chiropractic had helped a lot with my pain and injuries, and one day my chiropractor asked if I’d ever considered becoming a chiropractor myself,” says Dr. Erickson. “He thought I would have more fun working as a chiropractor than becoming a family doctor and writing prescriptions all day – and that proved he knew me well.” It was an idea worth considering.

A Passion Coming Alive

“At that time in my life, I was on fire about helping as many people as I could.” To help in his decision, Dr. Erickson asked his chiropractor if he could watch him work with other patients. Seeing the difference that chiropractic care made to people of different ages, and with varying problems, was all he needed. “I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor.”

Dr. Erickson attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, and there met his wife, who was also a chiropractic student. He was so inspired by all that he was learning about chiropractic, and by working with patients, that he convinced his two brothers and at least a dozen of his patients to become chiropractors as well.

Serving Family and Community

Drs. Rick and Megan EricksonSince 1986, Dr. Erickson has been practicing in Winston-Salem. He and his wife are actively involved in the community and their church. “My wife is a Supermom,” he says, as he boasts of her caring for their 6 kids and keeping up with all of their sporting activities.

“I love hunting, fishing and golf – but with 6 kids I never get to do any of it!”

Through Erickson Clinic of Chiropractic, we support Brenner Children’s Hospital, Community Food Bank and the local YMCA. Community is very important to us – this practice is full of friends we’ve made over the years by being involved all over the area.

Don’t Let Pain or Problems Linger

Dr. Erickson promotes a proactive attitude. He encourages patients to fix a problem quickly before it escalates into something larger, and he follows his own advice.

Several years back, Dr. Erickson had a leaky mitral valve. He went to Cleveland Clinic and underwent robotic heart surgery to fix the leak, and was back to work in just 3 weeks. He teaches that we should “Fix it fast – be active and aggressive with your care and get health restored as quickly as possible.”
