Augusta Chiropractor : Dr. Richard N. Southiere

Injury of Baseball Teammate in College Introduced Me to Chiropractic

I was playing baseball in college. Our best pitcher (Ron) got injured in a collision on the base path. He went from doctor to doctor, specialist to specialist. He was not improving and unable to play. One of our assistant coaches suggested that he go to his doctor, a Chiropractor.

Honestly, I really wasn’t sure what a chiropractor was or what they did. After two visits Ron was back playing. I went with Ron to a couple of his office visits and talked to his doctor. I was very interested. Being the analytical individual that I am I started reading (no Internet) back then, and became extremely interested and impressed with what chiropractic could do naturally. I changed paths slightly and have been humbled and amazed and the results patients get from chiropractic.

Dr. Southiere attended Kansas Wesleyan University in Salina Kansas. He was a pre-med student majoring in biology and chemistry.

Our Practice Philosophy Here at Southiere Chiropractic Associates Is Simple

To provide the best care we can for our patients.

We do what we do very, very well. Our approach to care is aggressive yet conservative. We have many treatment options and plans that we can utilize on patients. However, we also realize that we may not be the answer for everybody. We refer to other specialists (and get referrals) on a regular basis. Sometimes drugs and surgeries are absolutely the best treatment options for certain conditions. If we think we can help a patient, we will tell them. If we don’t think we can help them, we will tell them that too!

Family, Hobbies and Volunteer Work

Dr. Southiere lives in Winthrop with Debbie his wife (35+ years) and son Cody. In his down time, he enjoys fly fishing, shooting sports and golf. He has coached youth baseball, football and hockey.

Dr. Southiere has always felt that he needed to give back to the community. “This is where I make a living and provide for my family and it is only right to help the people that support me.” He is Past President of the Augusta Rotary Club, a founding Board Member of the Kennebec Valley Volunteers Association, Member of the Children’s Center Capital Campaign Committee; he is a Member of the Salvation Army Advisory board and served as its chairman for over 8 years.
