Dr. Ryan D. Fisher DC: I have been a chiropractor since 2002 here in Tigard, Oregon. I graduated from the University of Western States also here in Oregon. I began working with Dr. Tony Illo DC in 2002; which is where I studied how to apply the upper cervical (NUCCA) and Pierce drop table techniques. Dr. Illo is an expert with over 30 years experience of these manipulative techniques, which I was grateful to be a part of for over seven years. Having an opportunity to begin my own business adventure in the summer of 2009, I moved into our current facility in January of 2010.
My past experiences have over time directed my path towards a career in chiropractic. I have always had a passion for sports, so my expectations initially were to earn a degree that would center around athletes. My focus started with an education in physical therapy but through various on the job work injuries and a great recommendation from a close family member, I became enamored with the notion of healing people from the inside out with the use of chiropractic treatment. I had never been treated by a doctor of chiropractic until I turned 21. This positive experience sealed the opportunity of re-focusing my energy on earning a chiropractic education soon after my initial chiropractic treatment.
I have never lost sight of the impact quality chiropractic treatment can provide. Over the years of my practice, I have treated people who have been to numerous other physicians with unknown chronic conditions along with those who just needed a tune-up from their desk job with great success. I was meant to be a chiropractor. I can’t imagine doing anything else with the skills that I have been provided.
Sarah Labonte LMT: I've been a Licensed Massage Therapist since early 2006. I specialize in a number of different modalities including Myofascial Release, and Deep Tissue which when used together get phenomenal results. For example, I have treated clients with Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis. It has made a significant improvement in their stress, pain, and insomnia. Also I have seen similar results for clientele suffering with Frozen Shoulder Syndrome, and old/new injuries.Massage helps to increase circulation and therefore range of motion. It promotes relaxation and a sense of well-being.
