Meet the Doctor!
Dr. Ryan Duncan
Hello and welcome to Duncan Chiropractic. At Duncan Chiropractic, you, the patient are our number one priority. My name is Dr. Ryan Duncan. I am a chiropractor in Strongsville, Ohio and the founder of the company, Duncan Chiropractic, LLC. I grew up in Medina County where I attended Buckeye High School. In high school, I enjoyed playing varsity soccer where I learned the importance of focusing on “the goal” and staying physically fit in order to perform my best. I also discovered that an injury can really lower your performance and set you back. I found that chiropractic care was extremely effective in helping me return to the game as quickly as possible after getting banged up a time or two on the field. After high school, I attended the University of Toledo, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. I received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College in the upstate Finger Lakes region. After graduation in 2010 from chiropractic school, I moved back home to northeast Ohio to live and work in the area where I grew up. I have had a passion for chiropractic for many years and this passion continues to grow with every patient I am able to help to reach their goals to achieving a healthier life style.
I first became interested in chiropractic care when I was a young child. I injured my neck while trying to push down on a bike helmet that was too small for me. While doing so, I felt a sudden snap in my neck that instantly caused pain and spasm. I went to the hospital and was told to rest my neck for three weeks. After a few nights of little sleep, my mother took me to try chiropractic care. After a gentle adjustment to my neck, I felt amazingly better. I was finally able to sleep that night! After a few more treatments, I was back riding my bike again with my friends. While in undergraduate school I injured my neck again when I hit a low beam in a basement. I had headaches for several days despite using pain medication and icing my neck. With final exams the following week, I was desperate for some relief from my headaches so I pursued chiropractic care. Thankfully, after a few chiropractic treatments my pain had subsided dramatically and I was able to concentrate on my studies again.
As a child, getting chiropractic treatment got me back into activities I enjoyed and later on helped me succeed in college by reducing my headaches at exam time. As your doctor, my passion is to help you resume the lifestyle and activities you’ve always enjoyed, thus improving your overall quality of life.
When not treating patients, I enjoy many outdoor activities. In the winter, you will find me hitting the slopes and skiing with friends and family. During the summer I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, water skiing, and fishing. I also enjoy cooking, so feel free to ask about healthy recipes as I have a strong background in nutrition and would be happy to coach you on healthier eating habits.
Meet the Staff
Dawn Bellanca - Office Manager
I’ve lived in Strongsville since 2004. My home town North Olmsted, where I grew up as a child and graduated high school.
I started working at Duncan Chiropractic part time, in April 2015 as a chiropractic assistant. I also offer my own massage services under my company Strongsville Massage.
I had worked over 13 years at a local regional hospital. While I didn’t work in a clinical position, I found I really missed working one on one with people as my previous work history allowed. I enjoy meeting and serving the people in my community that come to see Dr. Duncan. I thoroughly embrace Dr. Duncan’s enthusiasm, sincere desire to heal, and we share the same customer service outlook.
I strive for positivity in my life and in the lives of those around me. I am married and have four daughters, two of which are mine and two are my step-daughters. I enjoy listening to live music, getting together with friends, wine tasting and traveling.
