Dr. Ryan Robinson
Guest Occupation: 
Chiropractic Physician and Functional Medicine provider
Guest Biography: 

Dr. Ryan Robinson is from Kenosha, WI. He has his undergraduate degree in Exercise Sciences and his Doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic. He is a Chiropractic Physician and Functional Medicine provider. He is the sole owner of Fundamental Health, a family practice with an emphasis on working with athletes.

Fundamental Health is located right off of the intersection of Hwy 34 and Route 59 in Aurora, IL. This office takes a unique whole body holistic approach to healthcare by utilizing chiropractic and functional medicine.

The doctor aims to fix patients physical ailments via chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Ryan doesn’t just focus on the spine but instead is focused on “building the person from the ground up” by addressing leg length discrepancies and working on the feet so that each patient has a solid foundation to support the rest of the body. Only by addressing these underlying issues can a person remain pain-free. This practice can help with: neck pain, back pain, shoulder restriction or pain, headaches, sprained ankles, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, knee pain, foot pain, bunions, and many other conditions.

What is functional medicine? Functional medicine is the future of healthcare (in my biased opinion)! Functional medicine is a patient-focused approach focused on the underlying causes of many chronic, debilitating and hard to treat diseases. Healthcare is focused on symptom control and very rarely looks at the causes of known conditions. Functional medicine can help prevent and detect diseases earlier. Through the use of advanced, specific lab testing, the physician can treat the pathology at the core of the problem. Functional medicine can help with: improving digestion, absorption and utilization of nutrients, addressing nutritional deficiencies, improving bowel elimination, brain fog, bone health, autoimmune conditions, weight loss, improving immune function, reducing oxidative stress, minimizing inflammation, improve blood sugar regulation, improve energy, combat stress, enhance metabolism, balance hormones and much more!
