Ryan Bones: He’s got your back

Print Article

Meet Dr. Ryan Bones, a loving husband, chiropractor, speaker and entrepreneur — a facilitator of human potential and adjuster of spines and destinies — whose mission is to elevate the health, happiness and success of all those around him.

Generation: I’m a Millennial through and through, in the best of ways!

Career and community involvement: Professionally, I serve as student chair for both ChiroSushi Media and the International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations, as well as adjunct faculty at Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, Ga. Locally, I serve on the board of directors for Heritage Health and the Kootenai County Young Professionals, and am a part of Coeur Group and TEDxCDA. I also seem to find myself in just about every single charity fashion show, dance off or golf tournament. I just can’t say no to any chance to help this community!

Parental status: Dog father to an outstanding 2-year-old chocolate Lab, Kila Babushka Bones (@kilabones on Instagram), and my wife, Cassidy, and I are working on adding a little human to the pack.

1. Why did you become a chiropractor?

I knew I was meant to be a chiropractor when I saw entire families having their lives transformed through the power of a chiropractic adjustment, having their life given BACK to them by simply allowing the body to do what it is meant to do — function normally. Once I witnessed the potential this career has to make people better, and thus the world better, I was hooked.

2. What do you enjoy most about helping people feel better?

What I enjoy most about my job isn’t simply helping people feel better, it’s helping people heal better. It’s a husband thanking me for giving him his wife back, because 20 years of migraines had changed who she was. It’s a mom thanking me for allowing her kids to see her as her true self, rather than the broken, sick woman she had become. Pain just scratches the surface, compared to what chronic health conditions can take from someone. That’s why I love the type of chiropractic I specialize in.

3. Why is human contact important?

We as humans need each other. We are social creatures, and our psychology and physiology depend on human interaction. As a doctor, so much of the healing I see happening in our practice comes from the simplest of “procedures," like listening, restoring hope or even just a hug. Without human contact, we cannot be human — we cannot be complete.

4. What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?

I know every single word to John Michael Montgomery’s “Sold” and Toby Keith’s “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue.” And I absolutely slay them when I sign karaoke.

5. What is your personal philosophy on life?

If you’re not making someone else’s life better, you’re wasting your time on this planet.
