Dr. Ryan Pilsner


As far back as I can remember I have always asked HOW and WHY. As a child I quenched my curiosity by taking apart anything I could get my hands on. I loved to find out how something was made and understand how it worked. When I began learning about the human body I continued to ask the questions, what is it made of (structure) and how does it work (function) but I realized another question needed to be answered. I have spent over a decade answering my third question which is “How does a human get and stay healthy?”

My path has taken me from the University of Wisconsin La-Crosse to Life University in Marietta, GA where I studied Chiropractic and found how I could help people find true health. I realized that a healthy lifestyle begins during childhood so I studied Pediatric Chiropractic and I’m currently certified in the Webster Technique by the I.C.P.A. I believe in living an active lifestyle so I performed post-grad studies in Sports Chiropractic and enjoy running, hiking, camping, biking and in 2006 I completed an Ironman Triathlon.

I currently use my background to help families in Fort Collins get and stay healthy by Listening to their needs, improving their structure and function with gentle chiropractic care and Teaching them how to reach their health related goals!

I’m waiting if you are ready to take action and make a change!
