Chiropractor Conroe TX Ryan Roeder


Ryan Roeder D.C.

Dr. Ryan Roeder attended the University of Texas at Austin prior to pursuing his chiropractic education at Parker University in Dallas, Texas. He graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 1997.

He has practiced chiropractic in the Dallas, Woodlands, and Conroe areas. He is certified by the state of Texas as a Designated Doctor to perform examinations for the Texas Workers’ Compensation Commission.

He is certified in the Cox® Technic for spinal manipulation and decompression of the cervical and lumbar spine. Cox® Technic is evidence-based spinal manipulation with a rich history of clinical and biomechanical research efforts performed in laboratories with federal grants and in private practices with practitioner excitement and desire to show what is possible with non-surgical, chiropractic spine care for many spine conditions.

Dr. Roeder is an avid believer in the importance of movement to your health, but more importantly he is a believer in moving the way we are designed to move. He has sought and continues to seek the best ways to evaluate his patients’ ability to move in a healthy manner. He believes that high quality doctors have 3 main traits in common:

  • Excellent Communication
  • Great Diagnostic Skills
  • In-depth Treatment and Exercise Knowledge

Because of this, he has pursued training with Functional Movement Systems, the world leaders in assessment of healthy movement patterns and in the diagnosis of unhealthy movement patterns. He is certified by Function Movement Systems in the SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment) Level 1 and Level 2. The SFMA is a movement based diagnostic system which systematically finds the cause of pain – not just the source – by logically breaking down dysfunctional movement patterns in a structured, repeatable assessment. This allows Dr. Roeder to treat a patient specifically based upon their areas of dysfunction instead of a generic one-size-fits-all approach so often seen in healthcare.

He is also certified in RockTape FMT Kinesiology Taping and FMT Blade instrument assisted soft-tissue mobilization or IASTM. Both are excellent tools for myofascial treatment to speed injury recovery and to improve movement patterns.

His personal interests include CrossFit, reading history, science fiction, University of Texas Sports, golf, and lots of other fun stuff. His greatest joy comes from his beautiful family – wife Christy, daughters Emily and Ava, dog Buttons, and their cats Ruby and Olive.

Dr. Roeder’s philosophy:

Remember, whether you are a lion or a gazelle: When the sun comes up, you better be moving, and you better be moving well!
