Rick’s passion for overcoming injuries through the use of movement began in 10th Grade, when he suffered an ankle injury playing basketball.

His success lead to a deep and lasting interest that inspired him to pursue his education in Kinesiology.
During college, he began working with people to rehabilitate injuries, and by 1995 he had his first job in the field helping people recover from automobile accident injuries. When he graduated in 1997 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology, he went to work at a physical therapy clinic where he helped patients who had suffered injuries at work, from automobile accidents, and sports related injuries. He soon expanded to working with people to overcome injuries at local gyms, in their homes, and at a rehabilitation center where he specialized in working with especially difficult cases.
In 1999 he added teaching to his resume, working to train other industry professionals how to more effectively assist their clients heal from injuries. Due to the demand for his expertise, he started Healing Through Movement in 2005. During that time, he traveled North America speaking, authored some of his very first books, and created digital training programs for professionals, including doctors, physical therapists, kinesiologists, personal trainers, and other exercise professionals.
His methods were so effective and sought after that he decided to shift his focus from training professionals and working with clients one-on-one, to reaching a broader audience by creating home-based injury recovery programs for those in need of a safe affordable healing solution. In 2008, Exercises For Injuries was launched, which is an international health and wellness company that provides digital and physical products and programs on a wide variety of topics.
