About the Doctor

A native Rhode Islander, Dr. Picard grew up witnessing health-related issues with his family, always believing there was a better way of achieving good health. His personal story of chiropractic began with his mother. When Dr. Picard was a teenager, he saw his mother go through many health-related challenges, one of them being low back pain. Seeing his mom regain her health through chiropractic care was the motivation that got Dr. Picard interested in chiropractic medicine.


After attaining his undergraduate pre-med requirements at Rhode Island College, Dr. Picard attended the National University of Health Sciences and graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1990. After being in practice for a number of years, Dr. Picard went back to school and attended the University of Rhode Island’s Nutrition and Food Sciences program. He also attained a national certification as a nutritional consultant from the American Association of Nutritional Consultants. Through chiropractic care and nutrition, Dr. Picard has helped thousands of patients live a pain free life.
