Dr. Rick Abbott

Specializing in Active Release Technique


Dr. Rick Abbott is the co-founder of Natural Health Center and a chiropractor trained in Active Release Technique. He graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon in 1984. He and his wife, Dr. Hope Wing, drove to Alaska and established their practices in Anchorage in spring 1985.

Dr. Abbott completed post-graduate training in Active Release Technique , which focuses on the muscle’s role in acute and chronic injuries, and is also trained in kinesio taping. He is very excited about Active Release Technique and its role in quickly getting injured athletes back to what they love to do.

He bases his practice on two simple premises:

  1. Treat patients the way you would want to be treated.

  2. Assist patients to get well as quickly as possible and teach them how to take better care of themselves.

In his private life, Dr. Abbott is active in masters swimming and holds many state, national and world records. He tries to live what he preaches to his patients.
