Dr. Ryan is incredible! As an athlete competing in CrossFit and as someone who deals with chronic pain; Dr. Ryan has helped me get through injuries and keep my "every-day" pain in check for the 2019 Crossfit Games Open. He is always willing to educate and share his knowledge base which in turn has helped me grow my arsenal of rehab and pre-hab exercises to keep me moving like a well-oiled machine!Catherine H.
Dr. Ryan treated me for 3 months for a long-standing knee injury. He used a comprehensive approach that assessed my whole body to find the limitation in my mechanics that was contributing to my knee pain. He was very approachable and caring throughout my care.Elise B.
