Chiropractor Randolph NJ Patrick Ryan


Patrick Ryan D.C.

Doctor Patrick Ryan is a chiropractor at Total Life Chiropractic & Wellness in Randolph, NJ. If you are struggling with neck or back pain, headaches or migraines, carpal tunnel, sciatica, or any other health condition please contact us today.

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 at 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.


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 the 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 constraints.


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 was 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 everyday successes to miracle cases, time and time again, we’ve seen that with chiropractic care, almost anyone can get healthier.


Dr. Ryan practices what he recommends and teaches. He receives regular chiropractic adjustments, exercises several days a week, and eats healthy organic foods and supplements. He is an avid reader and 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 Captain of both his son's teams, Joseph and Patrick Jr.. Patrick Jr. is currently a kicker for the Georgetown University football team. Both sons have been adjusted since birth and have never been subject to issues like ear infections and swimmer’s ear that plagued Dr. Ryan, even though Joe is a lifeguard!

We look forward to meeting you. Contact our Randolph office today to schedule your appointment! We’re pleased to offer complimentary consultations so that you can find out more about what we do.
