Dr. Ryan Engstrom
Dr. Ryan uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Ryan takes a 'whole person' approach to chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Ryan will work to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
Dr. Ryan earned his Bachelors of Arts, (B.A.), degree in Business Administration in 2003 from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL and later his Doctorate of Chiropractic, (D.C.) degree in 2007 from the renowned Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Dr. Ryan has been in full-time practice in Washington, DC and the Chicago metropolitan area prior to moving with his wife and daughter to Colorado to serve the Denver region.
Dr. Ryan’s journey to become a Chiropractor was born out of a family experience. At the age of four, his mother woke up and found that she was unable to walk normally. Dr. Ryan’s grandparents took her to two different medical doctors who were unable to reach a diagnosis. Unsatisfied, they went to another Doctor, not knowing that the Doctor was a Chiropractor. After a brief exam, the Chiropractor determined that she had somehow misaligned her pelvis and after a quick adjustment, she jumped off the table as if nothing had happened. Thanks to this event, Dr. Ryan’s parents decided that from an early age, he and his sister would be checked by a Chiropractor regularly. Dr. Ryan always enjoyed the experience at the Chiropractor’s office, and remembers thinking as a child that he’d like to be a Chiropractor. After graduating college and exploring his options, a conversation with his uncle re-ignited his interest in Chiropractic and a week later, Dr. Ryan set on a path to becoming a Chiropractor. He’s loved every moment of the journey since. Ryan Engstrom, D.C. lives by the motto, “It takes 65 muscles to frown and 13 to make a smile. Why work overtime?”- quoting B.J. Palmer. Through his association with the American Chiropractic Association, Dr. Ryan has been an active advocate for active duty military personnel and veterans’ access to Chiropractic care as well as working to ensure a patients’ bill of rights for all Americans.
As a Denver Chiropractor, it is Dr. Ryan’s mission and the mission of Level Chiropractic that every person experience true health from within. In his spare time, Dr. Ryan enjoys a variety of hobbies including writing and recording music, cooking and traveling with his wife and daughter.
