Dr Bart Hodgins of River Ridge Chiropracric

Dr. Bart Hodgins grew up in rural Alberta, Canada. He graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon in 1997. He enjoys an active lifestyle with his wife and two sons. His enthusiasm for life is contagious.

Since beginning his practice in 1998, Bart has developed a comprehensive approach to health care that supports the patient on multiple levels. In treating a person holistically and combining chiropractic, spinal decompression, acupuncture, herbal therapy, orthotics, exercise, diet, and orthopedic supports, Dr. Hodgins often can find faster and more lasting approaches to both common and more concerning health issues.



Patryce is the Office Manager and Patient Advocate at River Ridge, providing many of the support therapies, and working closely with spinal decompression patients. She holds a bachelors degree in Psychology from CSU, Sacramento. Patryce first came to our office as a Massage Therapist in January 2001. She trained at the New Center for Holistic Health, Education and Research, Long Island, NY.

Prior to coming to Asheville she founded Blue Point Wellness Center on Long Island. Patryce’s strengths are her medical knowledge, her compassion and empathy, her communication skills, and her keen awareness of patient needs. Because of her deep respect for Dr. Bart and his commitment to his patients, she has put her massage practice aside to join him in providing patient’s the best care possible.
