Dr. Ryan Messina, D.C.
Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine and Athletic Training from Canisius College, Doctor of Chiropractic from Life University
My mission is to adjust and help as many people as possible, to relieve neck pain, lower back pain, headaches, shoulder pain, knee pain and various other conditions related to the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems, through chiropractic and progressive wellness. I have over a decade of experience in physical therapy, working with young athletes, Division 1 collegiate athletes and professional athletes such as the NFL’s Peyton Manning and the NHL’s Sydney Crosby, as well as those patients with desk jobs suffering from poor posture and sedentary occupations or those on their feet all day with physical and stressful jobs. Using a unique approach to health and wellness, here at HealthSource of Shrewsbury you are promised quality care and pristine customer service to increase your physical, mental and emotional well being toward optimal health and an active lifestyle everyday. We treat patients with multiple conditions such as, degenerative disc disease, disc bulges, sciatica, headaches and various other conditions that can cause neck or low back pain by utilizing spinal decompression to influence disc rehydration and decrease nerve pressure all while increasing nerve health. We also work closely with patients and their attorneys on personal injury and worker’s compensation cases to ensure they get not only the care they need, but also the care they deserve. By using a survey called the Health Risk Assessment, we can even figure out the other stressors in your life that can affect how your body handles healing and may be contributing and preventing you from achieving better health.
After graduating from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY with my Bachelor of Science in Sports Medicine in Athletic Training, I interned with four chiropractors in Buffalo with four different backgrounds and approaches. This experience inspired me to take my desire to help others to a whole new level. After applying to multiple chiropractic schools I ended up attending and graduating from Life University in Marietta, GA. I specialized in an upper cervical approach throughout my education and then ended up developing a global approach to analyzing the spine and other joints of the body. I have also obtained a vast knowledge of using kinesiology tape such as RockTape to support and stabilize athletic injuries, pregnancy and the common workday pains. While in school I played Division 1 rugby in Buffalo and Marietta at a prestige level with teammates from all over the world.
Son to a wonderful mother and father and brother to an older brother and younger sister, I am very much a family man. I have a beautiful southern mutt, American pit and greyhound mix, named Shelby. Kind, honest, caring and respectful to all those I come across and work closely with, I am determined and confident that at HealthSource of Shrewsbury you will get the results you want and the results you need to feeling better faster, stay feeling better longer and get on the right path to an optimal lifestyle and progress into overall wellness. We hope you take that step with us and become part of our HealthSource Nation family!
