Dr. Ryan earned his Bachelors of Arts, (B.A.), degree in Business Administration in 2003 from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL and later his Doctorate of Chiropractic, (D.C.) degree in 2007 from the renowned Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Dr. Ryan has been in full-time practice in Washington, DC and the Chicago metropolitan area prior to moving with his wife and daughter to Colorado to serve the Denver region. Dr. Ryan's journey to become a Chiropractor was born out of a family experience. At the age of four, his mother woke up and found that she was unable to walk normally. Dr. Ryan's grandparents took her to two different medical doctors who were unable to reach a diagnosis. Unsatisfied, they went to another Doctor, not knowing that the Doctor was a Chiropractor. After a brief exam, the Chiropractor determined that she had somehow misaligned her pelvis and after a quick adjustment, she jumped off the table as if nothing had happened. Thanks to this event, Dr. Ryan's parents decided that from an early age, he and his sister would be checked by a Chiropractor regularly. Dr. Ryan always enjoyed the experience at the Chiropractor's office, and remembers thinking as a child that he'd like to be a Chiropractor. After graduating college and exploring his options, a conversation with his uncle re-ignited his interest in Chiropractic and a week later, Dr. Ryan set on a path to becoming a Chiropractor. He's loved every moment of the journey since. Ryan Engstrom, D.C. lives by the motto, "It takes 65 muscles to frown and 13 to make a smile. Why work overtime?"- quoting B.J. Palmer. Through his association with the American Chiropractic Association, Dr. Ryan has been an active advocate for active duty military personnel and veterans' access to Chiropractic care as well as working to ensure a patients' bill of rights for all Americans.

Why It Matters: Dr. Engstrom's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.

What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
