Dr Ryan earned his B.A. in Biology at CSU Channel Islands and earned his Doctorate magna cum laude from Southern California University of Health Sciences.
He initially began studying chiropractic after witnessing the healing power first hand when his mother in law was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. In addition to pain management Dr Ryan has extensive experience with sports and sports injuries and has participated in numerous sports over the years including Cycling, Surfing, Wakeboarding, Baseball, Snowboarding and Golf. He is also currently active with Crossfit and Yoga.
His interest in sports medicine led him to volunteer as a Chiropractor for the Aids Life Cycle and participate as a Rock-Tape Doctor for the Crossfit games in Los Angeles. His diverse experience with sports and sports injuries gives him first-hand knowledge of what specific treatment it takes to return to your sport, along with techniques for minimizing the likelihood of re-injury.
