For those with insurance coverage, Chiropractic care as well as massage and other physical therapy are often covered under your standard insurance policy.  We are participating providers with Anthem/Blue Cross-Blue Shield, AETNA, Cigna, and others, and you can even use your insurance flex-plan or Health Savings Account.  If you are not sure if chiropractic care is included under your policy, give us a call, and we will contact them to find out for you.  If you are a cash patient paying out-of-pocket, we have affordable options for you too.


Your body is the product of what has happened to it over the course of your whole life.  Accidents, falls, taking care of others, hard work, stress... Think back....what has happened to your ​body?  Isn't it time you took care of it?  Isn't it time you felt better?

Everyone in our office, from our receptionist to your chiropractor, has one goal in mind:  to help you feel better fast.

Dr. Ryan has received additional training in the Webster Technique, which is the treatment of pregnant women and newborns. Dr. Rooyakkers,, and his wife, Hope Rooyakkers, are both doulas, and they offer a fresh approach to Childbirth and Parenting Education.
Additionally, we employ several very talented certified massage therapists who provide targeted attention that can enhance your response to your Chiropractic care.  This is no ordinary 'spa massage'!  By combining Chiropractic care with massage, you will feel better faster and in fewer visits!
Massage is also available during the weekend.​​

Our team

Did you know that CHIROPRACTIC CARE has a proven track record at helping relieve the symptoms of many types of musculo-skeletal problems? 
  • If you have had a major trauma, Chiropractic care can help you deal with acute symptoms of pain, inflammation, and muscle spasm.  We'll help you heal and get you back to feeling good again. 
  • If you suffer from on-going issues from your work challenges, or perhaps physical challenges of an intense fitness routine, poor body mechanics, or the challenges of pregnancy, Chiropractic Care can help you too!

Whenever we suggest a treatment plan for a patient, whether they are new to Chiropractic, new to us, or if they are a long-time established patient experiencing a condition flare-up, keep in mind that we always will make our best recommendation for what we think it will take to help you feel your optimal best in the shortest time possible.  FOR THE RECORD:  We do not schedule people by some rote system that we force upon everyone (the “you need to come 3 times a week for 3 weeks then 2 times a week...blah blah blah”).  We base our suggestions to our patients on a combined 25+ years of working on spines, which give us some idea of what it takes to get certain things better, depending on a patient’s history, what they do, how long they have been hurting, how likely they are to follow instructions, etc.
