The Misery of Migraines

Dr. Rick Means II, Corrective Spinal Care of Florida

When you have a migraine, you can’t even move. You feel nauseated, and your whole life stops.

Plagued by migraines during childhood, the only way that Dr. Rick could put a halt to his suffering was through his dad giving him specific chiropractic adjustments to the top of his neck. Luckily, his father, uncle, and a cousin are all chiropractors, making the natural healing profession a true family tradition.

It was not until he began attending Florida State University for prelaw that Dr. Rick realized he wanted to help people in a different way. He called his father and told him that he wanted to make a change to the chiropractic profession.

The next stop was Port Orange, Florida to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. There, he learned how to assist others who were afflicted with problems like the ones he’d experienced in childhood. “I get incredible results helping people with headaches and migraines. I know what it is like, and you don’t have to put up with the pain.”

Discovering Upper Cervical Chiropractic

While gaining his chiropractic education, Dr. Rick met Dr. B.J. Kale and started training with him. Dr. B.J. brought Dr. Rick on three mission trips to Nicaragua, where they saw 15,000 people in just a few days who needed health care. He taught Dr. Rick the Upper Cervical Technique he uses in practice today – the same method Dr. Rick’s father learned from Dr. B.J.’s dad, Dr. Michael Kale.

When Dr. Rick graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic, he was given the Virgil V. Strange Philosophy Award, bestowed upon a single graduate. He is the past president and current member of the Xi Chapter of the Delta Sigma Chi Fraternity of Straight Chiropractic, which is one of the oldest chiropractic associations in existence.

Dr. Rick is a current member of the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Florida Chiropractic Society.

When he is not seeing patients, Dr. Rick and his wife are involved with Bo Nose Rescue. They travel all over the state to save dogs that have been abandoned or abused, with a particular interest in German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois dogs. His wife does dock diving with them, as well as protection training.

As Dr. Rick has been surrounded by chiropractic care for his entire life, he is passionate about the profession and is extremely knowledgeable about helping people. He particularly enjoys providing care for first-time chiropractic patients, putting them at ease and helping them feel confident and comfortable.

“I treat you just like you are my family.”
