As a high schooler at Chariho High School in Richmond, Dr. Benjamin Algiere was an avid soccer player until he hurt his hip. Seeking a noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment, he tried chiropractic care.
“It segued pretty well into a chiropractic career,” said the 27-year-old, who holds a doctorate from Connecticut’s University of Bridgeport.
For five months Algiere worked at a Westerly-based chiropractic practice but decided to strike out on his own in January to focus on care emphasizing “whole-body wellness, rather than just necks and backs,” he said.
Located on Route 138, in the “hub” of Richmond, Algiere said he chose to open Algiere Chiropractic Inc. close to home because he saw a “good opportunity” in an area that wasn’t saturated with competing chiropractors.
Algiere encourages his patients to come to him with concerns ranging from nutrition and diet, to plantar fasciitis and knee pain. “I want people to understand I can deal with any of their complaints,” he said.
