Chiropractor Randolph NJ Patrick Ryan

Patrick Ryan D.C.

Dr. Ryan hadn’t encountered chiropractic care before receiving his first adjustment at Life University. He was awarded a four-year rugby scholarship, and to indulge his love of the game, he decided to attend chiropractic college. “I grew up with ear infections. I was on antibiotics and had irrigation done. The doctors said I had swimmer’s ear, but I wasn’t a swimmer! After my first adjustment, I never had another ear infection.”

Dr. Ryan also met his wife Dr. Gerri while at college, so Dr. Ryan’s love of rugby gave him both a career and a family. While at Life, he learned the value of the natural, hands-on approach to health that chiropractic care offered. It helped him stay on the rugby field, improving his performance and eliminating the need for taking any medications. He earned a Doctor of Chiropractic and together with Dr. Gerri opened Ryan Chiropractic in 1998.

After 20 years of service as Ryan Chiropractic, Dr. Ryan felt it was time to change the name of his clinic to Total Life Chiropractic & Wellness. The intention is to broaden his outreach to the community to let everyone know the level of work and the amount of success we are having with infants, athletes, parents, and grandparents.

Staying Informed to Benefit Your Family

Dr. Ryan’s dedication to excellent patient care has put him on a continual quest for knowledge. He has earned Diplomate status with the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society (GCSS) and in 2016 was inducted into the Gonstead college of Fellows.

He has volunteered and is past president of the GCSS Board of Directors. He continues to teach pediatric chiropractic in the U.S. and Europe helping fellow practitioners elevate their level of chiropractic expertise.

Additionally, he holds a Diplomate in Pediatrics from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and holds a Certification in Wellness. To help pregnant mothers, he is certified in the Webster Technique, which offers a natural solution for intrauterine constraint.

Focusing On Children's Health

At Total Life Chiropractic & Wellness, Dr. Ryan feels fortunate to have assisted many people in our community. “Often, patients come in with a symptom, such as an ache or pain that is a warning signal to a bigger problem. Through chiropractic care, we fix the cause so they may realize a higher level of health.”

  • Girl’s Leg Saved: One such case involved a young girl who fell off the back of her bike. The medical doctors diagnosed her with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and she was prescribed the powerful drug Neurontin. Due to the unrelenting excruciating pain in her lower leg, the doctors even spoke of amputating her leg from the traumatic event. After two weeks of adjustments, she was pain-free, returned to normal function, and was able to dance in high heels at her cousin’s wedding.
  • Colic: A mom who was frustrated with her baby’s colic sought Dr. Ryan’s help. After the baby began adjustments, the mom reported her baby were able to sleep for five uninterrupted hours for the first time since birth…and so was mom!
  • Concussions: Middle and high school athletes with concussions have seen drastic improvements in their recovery speed; babies and children have stopped suffering from ear infections, asthma, bed-wetting, croup, and more. From every day successes to miracle cases, time and time again, we’ve seen that with chiropractic care, almost anyone can get healthier.

Living a healthy chiropractic lifestyle

Dr. Ryan practices what he recommends and teaches. He receives regular chiropractic adjustments, exercises several days a week, eats healthy organic foods and supplements. He is an avid reader, enjoys bowling, fishing, bike riding, playing golf, and watching his kids participate in their various sports. He and his wife have 2 boys and 2 dogs. Both boys were born at home and have been adjusted since birth.

Dr. Ryan is the founder and past director of Black River Youth Rugby and the former assistant coach of the Delbarton Rugby Club, which his son, Patrick Jr., captains. His son, Joe, plays club soccer and rugby at Wake Forest. Both sons have been adjusted since birth and have never been subject to issues like the ear infections and swimmer’s ear that plagued Dr. Ryan, even though Joe is a lifeguard!
