Meet Dr. Ryan Wagemakers

Changing Course

Dr Wagemakers photoChiropractic was not Dr. Wagemakers’ first career—initially, he got a neuroscience degree from the University of Alberta and worked as a biologist. But in the early 2000s, he experienced his own health crisis. When the traditional medical route offered nothing but drugs to suppress his symptoms, he decided to try chiropractic care as a last resort.

His chiropractor explained how the nervous system works to allow the body to heal and regulate itself, which made sense to Dr. Wagemakers. What made even more sense was how much better he felt after just one adjustment. He also noticed that the other patients were happy, healthy, and living their best lives. He decided that helping people achieve their potential was a better fit for him than his career as a biologist.

Dr. Wagemakers enrolled at the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2008.

Changing Lives

After his many years in practice, Dr. Wagemakers still loves seeing people get better and live fuller, happier and healthier lives. He focuses on educating our patients about the body’s innate ability to create optimal health from within when nervous system interference is removed. He wants to help everyone understand they have control over their own health and don’t need to reach for a pill for every ailment.

Meeting patients where they are in terms of health is important to Dr. Wagemakers, and he offers friendly, compassionate, nonjudgmental care to everyone. We treat you like family & we want the same results for you that we’d want for our own loved ones.

Away From the Office

When he’s not at work, Dr. Wagemakers spends his time with his wonderful wife Natalie (who was his first friend in life) and their three kids. Natives of Calgary NE, they all enjoy being outdoors—skiing, rollerblading, walking and taking advantage of all that our beautiful community offers.
