Ryan was raised with a respect and love for Chiropractic care as he would visit the family chiropractor as regularly as possible. This appreciation grew into a great desire to gain the ability to help people in the way that his personal chiropractor always had. He re-devoted himself to his studies and enrolled in the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic at Southern California University of Health Sciences in 2009, where he attained the degree of Doctorate of Chiropractic, Cum Laude. Ryan has extensive experience working with athletes in both competitive and rehabilitative settings. Ryan’s passion for Chiropractic stems from a deep understanding of how the human body works and bringing that understanding to the people he serves.
Sciatica pain radiates downwards from the lower back, back of the thigh, between the calves and into the foot. Numbness and tingling may radiate into the foot. Inflammation near a degenerating inter-vertebral disk, a slipped disc, a pinched nerve, narrowing of spinal canal, and aging can cause sciatica. Alternative treatments include chiropractic manipulation, acupuncture, and massage therapy.
There are alternatives to analgesics and eardrops for earaches. Apply a hot or cold compress on the ear muscles – it will soothe the pain. You may also pour a few drops of warm olive oil into the ear canal to inhibit the buildup of earwax, protect against infections, and lessen pain. Enlist a Chiropractor to ease the strain in your neck to channelise fluid collected in the ear to the throat.
Identify your goal, dismissing any doubts that pop up. Concentrate on the positives only. Jot it down in a journal or on a Post-it, and set an achievable deadline. Pragmatically break down your course of action. Be accountable to yourself and others for these sub-goals. Be patient and persevere when confronted with obstacles. Remember to treat yourself when you succeed!
