Meet Dr. Dylan Drynan

Making the Switch to Chiropractic

Dr. Dylan headshotWhen Dr. Dylan was in college, he suffered with shoulder and neck pain that had gotten worse over the years. Local medical doctors prescribed pain meds and muscle relaxers. The physical therapist he saw couldn’t help at all, and he had become frustrated that nothing worked. A friend suggested chiropractic, which Dr. Dylan didn’t know anything about and didn’t want to try. Finally, to make his friend happy, he went to a chiropractor—and felt better within a few adjustments.

That experience completely changed Dr. Dylan’s thinking about chiropractic. He got to know the chiropractor, and discovered that he loved his job and was excited about it. Since he didn’t know anybody else who felt that way about their job, Dr. Dylan decided that’s what he wanted to do.
