Dr. Ryan McGaughey, DC, BS: A Functional Medicine Doctor
Dr. Ryan McGaughey has collaborated with Dr. Marquis for over a decade. His approach to patient care is holistic, using a wide lens focused on musculoskeletal imbalance and pain relief as well as on neurometabolic conditions (thyroid, neurodegenerative disorders, endocrinology, concussions, etc.). He has over 15 years of experience in treating patients of all ages, including infants, geriatric patients as well as professional and amateur athletes.
Dr. McGaughey’s approach to chiropractic care is “Full-Scope”. He uses all the technology, tools, and resources available to care for patients. Musculoskeletal complaints patients present with may seem isolated to the neck, back, knees and/or shoulders but to Dr. McGaughey they are part of a broader system of interconnected and interrelated kinetic and metabolic processes occurring in the body and brain.
With his extensive experience, he realizes that suppressing symptoms will never produce a lasting healthy environment for the body, and in fact may only mask more serious underlying issues. While providing treatment and proper guidance, he also educates his patients. This is key in achieving their goals during their long-term optimal whole health journey as our bodies are created to be self-healing and self-regulating.
Dr. McGaughey, DC, BS Kinesiology also owns McGaughey Health Group in Atascadero with his wife, Dr. Carolyn McGaughey, N.D. They enjoy an active lifestyle and quality family time with their three wonderful children.
Dr. Mandy Boyle, DC, MSc, RYT: A Functional Medicine Doctor
