Joel Richnak, MD

Since completing his residency in physiatry, Dr. Richnak has consistently pursued additional professional training, driven by his strong interest in regenerative medicine and its ability to help the human body heal itself.

This led to training in prolotherapy in 2007, followed by training in regenerative medicine concepts and treatments in 2014. In 2015, he was brought on as a Regenexx affiliate.

Today, Dr. Richnak is managing partner at Mountain View Rehabilitation Medical Associates, where he is co-chairman of their sports and spine specialty clinic.

Since 2003, Dr. Richnak and his family have lived in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California. He is an avid outdoor sports enthusiast, with experience as a climbing and back-country ski guide. He and his family spend much of their leisure time cycling, running, backpacking, and skiing the mountains of the Sierra Nevada.
