Richard Ward has been working as a Physical Therapist in San Juan County for 21 years since graduating with a Master’s Degree in 1996. He has provided care for injured athletes, those who have undergone orthopedic surgery, and almost every joint & muscle pain the residents of San Juan County have experienced! He has been working in almost every aspect of PT during that time, including Nursing Home care, Home Health care, Hospital care, and Out-Patient care. He has years of experience in rehab for total joint replacements, athletic injuries, and helping people recover from auto accidents, sprains, and strains. Treating low back problems and sciatica has also been a large part of his professional experience. After working for a rehab company based in Salt Lake City for the first 11 years, Richard and his partners, Alon Pugh and Alan Ward, saw a need to start their own company. This allowed them the freedom to hire more therapists to meet the need for rehab services they saw in San Juan County. That company is Precision Rehabilitation. Since the beginning, they have expanded rehab services from Blanding and Monticello to include the clinics in Montezuma Creek and Monument Valley, as well as providing Home Health services to the entire county. Richard and his wife have raised their 6 children in Blanding, and have loved the wonderful life this area provides! They have become a part of the community and it has become a part of them. He hopes to spend his entire professional career providing care to the good people of San Juan County!
