Meet the Doctors

Dr. Ryan Fessel, D.C.

Dr. Ryan Fessel, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Ryan began his undergraduate education as a Kinesiology Major at Cal Poly. While there, he had the opportunity to do an internship with a chiropractor. Already having an interest in the chiropractic philosophy, his time interning in a practice pushed him to realize a greater passion?restoring health and wellness naturally, without the need for drugs or surgery.

This internship prompted Dr. Ryan to attend chiropractic college at Life West. While in school, he had the unique opportunity to attend three mission trips, twice in El Salvador and once in India. On the trips, he'd see hundreds of patients each day and was amazed at the progress just one adjustment could bring.

Dr. Ryan is thrilled to have recently acquired Central Coast Chiropractic, Inc. and looks forward to getting to know more people in the community while helping them achieve their goals in health and wellness.

Locating and Resolving Subluxation

Dr. Ryan believes in providing focused chiropractic care that gets to the root cause of your problem. During care with him, he'll carefully find any subluxations in your body, also known as spinal bones that aren't in proper alignment. When your spine is positioned optimally, you'll be able to live better.

Outside of the Practice

When Dr. Ryan isn't in the practice, he enjoys spending time outdoors, especially at the beach with his dog. He's also a part of a local softball league through the Young Professionals Networking group.

We'd love to welcome you to our practice to learn more about Dr. Ryan's philosophy and how chiropractic care can naturally impact your life for the better.
