About Dr. Riley
“At the young age of ten I remember experiencing severe neck and shoulder pain. My parents, in desperation to find the cause, took me to several doctors who were unable to find the source of this unrelenting pain. They were finally told, ‘There is nothing wrong with him. He just wants attention.’ It was not attention that I wanted. I wanted my pain to stop so I could ride my bike and play outside again. It was not until my mother took me to a local chiropractor in Newport, Arkansas that my pain was not only diagnosed correctly but the treatment of chiropractic manipulation completely alleviated my pain after just a few visits. I was a happy boy! I had a pinched nerve in my neck that was radiating pain into my right shoulder and arm. My wife and I now have two wonderful sons of our own who have received the benefits of chiropractic care since birth. I have a real soft spot in my heart for any child or adult for that matter, who is hurting.”
One of ten Board Certified Chiropractic Orthopedists in the state of Arkansas, Dr. Riley began his chiropractic practice in 1978. After graduating from the National College of Chiropractic in Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Riley came back to his home state to serve Little rock and its surrounding communities. He promotes the healing process by focusing not only on the injured area, but on the whole body.
He combines a wide range of therapies in his treatment including spinal manipulation (adjustments), Nutrition Response Testing, Acupuncture, and a variety of physical therapy modalities including K-Laser.
“My goal as a physician is to help my patients improve their daily life and reach optimum health using a conservative approach.”
