Dayton Functional Medicine:
Dr. Rick Hasemeier


Dr. Rick Hasemeier

I grew in unique household were my father was a chiropractor and my mother a registered nurse. The 2 opposing beliefs about health sometimes created for some interesting conversations around the dinner table.

I made the decision to go into the healing arts at the age of 12 when I saw my grandfather lying in a hospital bed dying from cancer. I then in my junior year of high school I was trying to decide to become a chiropractor or becoming a nurse anesthetist. I came to the realization that there has to be a better way to help the body heal itself and be healthier. I then decide to go chiropractic school.

I have exclusively been practicing Functional and Lifestyle medicine for the last 5 years.

When I’m not working with patients, I volunteer with the Middletown Senior Citizens and participate with the Springboro Rotary Club. I enjoy listening to audiophile recordings through headphones, and learning to help individuals be the best version of themselves. My wife Dana and I live in Trenton with ducks that are herding toys for our four Cardigan Welsh Corgi dogs. (Traci, Nell, Aero and Chip).

I constantly strive to learn new ways to help people overcome health challenges and learn the why behind things in the world around us.
