Here is Dr. Reichardt’s bio:

Christian H. Reichardt, DC, CCSP, has been a practicing doctor of chiropractic since 1983. He was a disability evaluator for the State of California, but then turned his attention from work-related injuries to sports injuries due to his own involvement in sports.

He became one of the first Certified Chiropractic Sports Physicians in the U.S.A. in 1986, as well as a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management. His practice in Santa Monica, California draws a large clientele of Hollywood celebrities, as well as professional and amateur athletes. He has worked with a number of US Olympic Team members and Golf professionals.

Dr. Reichardt”s love of golf inspired him to develop an extremely effective golf assessment and teaching system widely utilized by Golf Professionals in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia. He has written the acclaimed book “PainFree Golf”. He also contributes articles for a number of golf publications and publishes and writes for several prominent golf websites. His expertise in the physical components of golf and golf education resulted in his invitation to the Golf 20/20 task force and he is a highly requested lecturer at PGA events and tournaments.

While treating and training Olympic athletes for the past 20 years, Dr Reichardt became aware of vibration technology about 15 years ago and developed a line of Vibration units for the chiropractic and physical therapy market in 2006. The company is called PowerVibeUSA. He has successfully incorporated WBV in his office and Golf Teaching Facilities with profound results. According to Reichardt, “I find the PowerVibe WBV improves my clients bone density, circulation, strength and flexibility. It even seems to increase metabolism. It promotes bone growth by increasing the load on bone osteoblastic function and local bone circulation is increased. “Working with the Power Vibe Pro is like supercharging your exercise.”

“A majority of my athletes with chronic tightness are experiencing better Range of Motion and flexibility in their spine and they are achieving their goals and recuperating faster after hard workouts. They have less pain and therefore want to exercise more. Many golfers are attributing lower scores to the Power Vibe.”
