We had the good fortune of connecting with Ryan Crandall and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ryan, alright, let’s jump in with a deep one – what’s you’re definition for success?
For me success is defined by my patients not needing to see me anymore. Don’t get me wrong I love my patients, but I want to educate them and give them the tools necessary to be successful in life. So much of rehabilitation is performed outside the clinic. I explain to people that I am just a guide, pointing people in the right direction. I know I’ve done my job when a patient has a better understanding of their body and how to manage their symptoms.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My patients often tell me I’m not like other chiropractors they’ve been to. I use a lot of different tools to get results. I always strive to give my patients the highest level of care. I’m consistently trying to learn more and more keep an open mind about different ways to treat the human body. I’m constantly asking why when it comes to my patients pin or dysfunction. I treat every patient like a little puzzle. No two patients are the same so they can’t be treated the same. What works for one person won’t work for another.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would definitely take them to the Americano in Scottsdale. In my opinion it’s one of the best steakhouses I’ve ever been to. Crujente tacos and Brickyard are also must-gos for me.
I’m a big coffee drinker so probably hit up some local roasters like: Press And Cartel.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
A lot of my success comes from my parents. They have always believed in me and as much as they didn’t like the idea they supported me in moving halfway across the country to start my own business. My fiancé, Kailee, has also been a huge influence in helping me grow and encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone.
From a clinical standpoint I have a few mentors from chiropractic school, Brett Winchester and Corey Campbell, that taught me everything I know. They are part of a group called Motion Palpation Institute. I was lucky enough to represent MPI in school and I owe my entire success to their teachings. They taught me to think differently when it comes to the human body.
