Due to excessive use of computers, I have been suffering constant neck and shoulder pain for more than 5 years. At times, I could hardly sleep or move my head due to the tightness of muscle. I was recommended to Dr. Burg through my husband who is also a patient of Dr. Burg. My husband strongly encouraged me to see Dr. Burg because of the positive results he has had. I was already extremely impressed with Dr. Burg since my first visit. He had me examined and pinpointed the part of the muscle that causes the pain. He also did some adjustments to my back bones and neck. Already after the first session, I felt so much better. The pain-free experience that I haven't enjoyed for a long time. I am still continuing to see Dr. Burg once a week for treatment. I can feel I am able to function better and the flareups are less frequent. I am a strong believer in Dr. Burg and his Active Release Technique. By far this is the most effective method I have had in comparison to other methods of chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, massage... let alone other doctors! Dr. Burg knows how to eliminate my pain very effectively!! Thanks
When I met Richard, I have just recovered from a long-term Achilles tendon injury, which left me with a number of compensating problems along the side of my leg and hip. Richard's whole-body approach has helped me control the cascade of issues that arise as one body part compensates for issues in another. With his help, I have managed to keep running regularly since seeing him, and I'm getting back into shape. I have found the balance that Richard takes to be very beneficial. Since coming to him, I have learned a lot about how my body responds and what I need to do to control my injuries. Working with Richard hasn't been like getting lectures about my body, but more like having a study partner who knows a lot about nutrition, anatomy, and physiology and who's willing to work with me as I figure out the particulars of my own body.
I had a negative perception of chiropractors. I was referred to Dr. Burg by my personal trainer for my back issues. I am truly amazed by what chiropractic care has done for me. I have no lower or middle back issues at this time. In addition, through the exam process Dr. Burg identified lack of motion in my neck which he has been able to treat. I never knew that I could get my neck to move as much as it can now. Thank you! I am now a firm believer in chiropractic care! Richard has changed my view on the value of chiropractic care. He was most excellent! I was impressed with his knowledge of the body and he gave me many practical pieces of advice to make my back stronger. I will follow Richard wherever he decides to practice.

About me

Dr. Richard Burg is a licensed Chiropractor serving patients from Berkeley, Oakland and the greater East Bay.

He is an active athlete and particularly enjoys working with patients who have had to limit their sports or musical passions due to pain. He loves to help these patients get back to active wellness!

Of course, Dr. Burg works with a range of other patients as well including those suffering from personal injuries from accidents or work-related injuries.

As a Chiropractor with a background in nutrition as well, Dr. Burg is committed to promoting the health and well being of his patients using both chiropractic and supplemental approaches.

Dr. Burg uses a 'whole person approach'. This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. He has continued his education and is always learning new techniques to help his patients. He is certified in both Active Release Techniques (ART) and the Graston Technique. Using these unique approaches, Dr. Burg is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.

'Thank you for getting my 'old body' in shape. Last year and during my first triathlon this year, my knees and hip area (sciatic) gave me a lot pain. The last two seasons during training they would also bother me while doing the run and sometimes the bike.Having you work on me for 6 weeks before my last triathlon 'Escape from Alcatraz' seemed to really help. As I ran the grueling 8 mile portion of my race, neither my hip area or knees bothered me during or after my race. I was tired but no pain. This was the best I have felt during any of my runs, practice or events.

Thank you again, I'm sure I will see you in the future.'

Months of physical therapy did not give me the results that Dr. Burg achieved in only weeks. I was able to start running again and resume my other activities. I understand that maintenance is necessary after my injuries so I continue to see Dr. Burg on a regular basis. Dr. Burg is the reason I was able to run again!
"THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for using your intellect and magic hands to help me reach the goal of finishing my very first marathon! This ol' bag of bones couldn't have accomplished this feat without you and your support! You'll always hold a special place in my marathon memory."
Dr. Burg used a combination of chiropractic and ART treatments to affect my positive outcome. These therapies proved to be both immediately beneficial and of complementary value over the course of my treatment. Dr. Burg's style is kind and caring. I have already recommended Dr. Burg to a friend and would not hesitate to do so again in the future!
