Dr. Ryan grew up surrounded by a chiropractic family. It was an accident at the age of 16 that changed his perception. He was on a traveling ice hockey team when he was cross-checked in the lower back, fracturing his L5 on the right side. This type of injury never actually heals. His options were limited and he chose chiropractic management over surgery.
Dr. Ryan’s mindset about chiropractic shifted from thinking it just helped to improve posture to seeing how it could be therapeutic and relieve pain. His original goal was pain relief and sports chiropractic but grew as he saw the further health impact of chiropractic.
In 2012, Drs. Ryan and Denise opened their office on the east side of Wichita. They have developed great relationships with their patients. From infants to professional athletes, Dr. Ryan finds great joy in helping anyone with whom he comes into contact.
