Dr. Ryu graduated from McGill University in Montreal, Canada in 2000 having earned a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering. It was sports that eventually brought Dr. Ryu to his first experience with Chiropractic care. While playing tennis, he suffered a lower back injury, which was the worst pain he had ever experienced. It was affecting the quality of his life and his ability to do the things he loved to do. Initially he received traditional medical treatment without satisfying results. Fortunately, he was referred to a chiropractor for help. He began getting adjusted regularly and thanks to chiropractic, his low back injury was resolved. Regular chiropractic care also helped Dr. Ryu get rid of migraines that he suffered from for several years. His improved health through chiropractic care inspired him to become a chiropractor himself, and he graduated magna cum laude in 2006 from Life University in Marietta, Georgia.

Dr. Ryu's practice is very versatile and treats patients of all ages from children to grandparents. He enjoys treating a wide variety of cases including, but not limited to: sports injuries, occupational injuries, families, sprain/strain injuries, pregnancy and motor vehicle accident injuries. Dr. Ryu tailors treatments based on your individual needs and focuses on your overall well-being.

Dr. Ryu's interest in treating extremity problems led him to specialize in treating foot, ankle and knee problems. He welcomes patients of all ages suffering from problems in their feet, ankles and knees to find natural relief.

Dr. Ryu uses a very specific adjusting method, The Gonstead Technique. Dr. Ryu took numerous courses over several years and became certified in the Gonstead Technique while at Life University. His focus utilizing the Gonstead Technique is to be as precise, specific, and gentle as possible. He takes great care in restoring the affected vertebra back into place as effectively as possible so he can restore the integrity of your spine.

Dr. Ryu enjoys playing tennis and soccer but most importantly, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Rachel, and their two amazing children, Joseph and Jayden.
