Dr. Richards' Background
I am a sports medicine doctor practicing in Salt Lake City and Bountiful, Utah, and I am a member of the Intermountain Sports Medicine Specialty Group. I specialize in non-surgical treatment of muscle, joint, and bone issues. I have expertise in treating issues specific to active people and in helping prevent issues through proper movement mechanics, strength training, nutrition and post-injury return-to-play guidance.
I am the team physician for the West High School football team. I have been the past team physician for Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University, U.S. Speedskating World Championships, Ford Ironman World Championships, U.S. National Cross Country Championships, Utah Ironman Sprint and Olympic Triathlon, NBA Rocky Mountain Review, and U.S.A. Collegiate Rugby National Championships.
I was born and raised in Salt Lake City and love being in Utah. I especially enjoy the mountains (backcountry skiing and hiking) and the roads (running, cycling and triathlons). My wife Molly is a Bountiful native, an active runner, and triathlete. She is a professional home organizer and together we have five wonderful children: Cort, Macy, Caleb, and the twins, Jake and Emmy. As a family, we enjoy being outdoors, running, skiing, hiking, traveling, playing sports, and reading great books.
