Meet Dr. Richard Lawson
After serving in the infantry in Vietnam, Dr. Richard Lawson enrolled in C.U.N.Y. and received his bachelor’s degree in biology. He furthered his education by attending chiropractic college at Life University in Georgia and graduated in 1983. Dr. Lawson started his practice in Vernon and subsequently opened an additional office in Oak Ridge. Dr. Lawson has taken numerous post graduate courses to keep abreast of current research in the health care field and has expertise in the extremities and nutrition as well as the spine. He is certified as an advanced clinically trained practitioner in Nutrition Response Testing.
Dr. Lawson has been very fortunate to have a successful practice in his home community for over 25 years with Lawson Chiropractic & Natural Health Center. He believes that a person’s body has the ability to be healthy given the right set of conditions: proper spinal alignment, good nutrition and a positive mental outlook.
Dr. Lawson is currently only one of three doctors in New Jersey with his advanced Nutrition Response Testing training. This certification takes 6 months to complete and requires in-depth knowledge of human nutrition and cellular function. At Lawson Chiropractic & Natural Health Center, Dr. Lawson will make recommendations to help patients improve their health utilizing whole food supplements and dietary changes.
Outside of the office, Dr. Lawson is an avid gardener and enjoys spending time with my family as well as golfing, running, reading, traveling and hiking.
