Chiropractor Mt. Juliet TN Evan Pridmore

Chiropractor

Evan Pridmore D.C.

For Dr. Evan being a doctor is not just a job but a vocation. Since he was in grade school when asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” the answer was continuously a doctor. Evan has always had a passion for helping people, especially children.

The reason Dr. Evan decided to become a Chiropractor is because he saw how chiropractic care maintained his father’s quality of life when many traditional medicine specialists were recommending spinal fusion surgery. Due to his low back degenerative disc disease there would be some mornings when his father would need help getting out of bed or be unable to play with his children, however with regular chiropractic care his father was able to regain his quality of life and avoid unnecessary surgical intervention.

This inspired Dr. Evan to provide preventative wellness care as a nervous system specialist correcting the true cause of symptoms. Now he is able to live his best life, providing families and people of all ages with effective, principled Chiropractic wellness care.


Education & Background

Dr. Evan received his Bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati in Exercise Science and Biomechanics. He then continued his education receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida. Dr. Evan continues his education today by participating in the Diplomats for pediatric and pregnancy care, from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, as well as Functional Neurology. In the fall of 2020, he attended Parker University and completed their Animal Chiropractic program.

Dr. Evan is excited to serve the Mount Juliet community through volunteer efforts with local non-profit organizations as well as giving back to the community a part of the practice culture.


Fun Facts

Dr. Evan backpacked Europe for two months, he loves being outdoors whether hiking, fishing, or hunting, and he enjoys all types of sports and music.

Chiropractor Mt. Juliet TN Ryan Hewitt

Chiropractor

Ryan Hewitt D.C.

Dr. Ryan has always wanted to serve and help people. His number one goal as a healthcare provider is to empower people to take control of their health and improve the quality of life of those around them.

Dr. Ryan was introduced to chiropractic care at a young age. While suffering from neurological issues as a small child, his pediatrician was unable to address his health concerns with anything more than a "He'll just grow out of it" diagnosis. After some time, at the urging of a family friend, he was taken to see a neurologically based chiropractor. Shortly after receiving multiple adjustments his neurological symptoms and pattern of dysfunction resolved. It was only later in life after a recurring golf injury that Dr. Ryan truly understood the importance of being under chiropractic care not only to address pain but to prevent issues from occurring in the future. This is why he is so passionate about delivering wellness-based neurological-specific chiropractic care to the community and inspires a proactive vs reactive approach, helping people avoid prescription drugs and unnecessary surgery. Dr. Ryan loves serving our military servicemen and women, first responders, families, and people of all ages.


Education & Background

Dr. Ryan received his Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology with an Exercise Science & Rehabilitation focus. He then pursued his Masters degree in Business Administration before completing his Doctoral program to be a Chiropractic Physician. Dr. Ryan enjoys teaching chiropractic techniques to fellow chiropractors along with pursuing continued education in chiropractic biophysics, pediatric and pregnancy care as well as craniosacral and extremity techniques.

Dr. Ryan could not be more thrilled to be able to serve the Mount Juliet/Greater Nashville area and give his all for Tennessee. #GOVOLS
