Dr. Richard Ulm
Raised in Rhode Island, Dr. Ulm has been involved with sports his entire life. With the prospect of training with Jud Logan, a 3-time Olympian in track and Field (now a 4-time Olympian), he attended Ashland University. While at Ashland, he studied English, philosophy, and political science. Although he didn’t know it at the time, he was lucky enough to have met his future wife (Jackie Jeschelnig), to whom he is happily married. At Ashland he also developed a great love of the Mid-West, its people and its landscape. After graduation, he continued training and coached track and field at Emporia State University, where he received a Masters of Science. In 2004 he competed at the Track and Field Olympic Trials in Sacramento, California. Following the Olympic Trials he coached at New Mexico State University where he was both a strength and
conditioning coach as well as the head throwing coach. During his time as a NCAA division I coach, his interest in the human body and performance grew and in 2008 he decided to pursue this passion more and become a chiropractic physician. To this end, in 2008 he enrolled at National University of Health Sciences. National University is an evidence-based institution for Chiropractic Physicians. While at National, he focused his efforts on biomechanics, anatomy, orthopedics, gait assessment and rehabilitation.
In 2011, Dr. Ulm opened Columbus Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center (CCRC) with the intent of providing high quality, patient-centered care to the greater Columbus community. To ensure that he is providing the best, most cutting edge care to his patients, he has continued to study multiple techniques and approaches from around the world. He is now full body certified in Active Release Technique (perhaps the best soft tissue technique in the world); he became one of only 177 Chiropractic Physicians in the world certified in the McKenzie Method (traditionally a certification reserved for physical therapists); he became a certified therapist of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization by the Prague School of Rehabilitation (regarded by many as the most cutting edge rehab approach in the world). Dr. Ulm blends all of these techniques to provide the most effective and patient-specific care he can to the patients and athletes with whom he works.
Dr. Ulm inherited a passion for teaching from his mother. He teaches rehabilitation and strength training to medical professionals, personal trainers and strength coaches all over the world. He is a International instructor of DNS for the Prague School of Rehabilitation; he is an instructor for the Motion Palpation Institute and is the founder and lead instructor for Athlete Enhancement, an education platform where Dr. Ulm is able to take his clinical experience and knowledge and apply it to the performance industry, helping coaches better train their athletes.
