Dr. Ryan Blouin
I am excited to introduce myself as a new chiropractor here at Hinterland Chiropractic in Nerang!
My passion for this profession began the moment I first got under chiropractic care at the age of 16. An ice hockey injury initially brought me into my local chiropractor’s office, but it was the unforeseen effects that truly gripped me. As a child growing up in the cold northern parts of Canada, I for unknown reasons, suffered from major migraine headaches throughout my entire life. Having seen numerous doctors and specialists, the only option I was given was pain medication. After getting under chiropractic care not only did my injury subside but to my surprise my regular migraine headaches also went away. I found I was sleeping better, I had more energy and my sports training was also improving. It was then I knew that if these effects could occur so naturally by adjusting the spine and nerve system there must be something to this whole chiropractic ‘thing’. From that point on, I developed a burning passion for natural health and wellbeing and knew I would someday become a Chiropractor!
I moved to the Gold Coast having completed my training at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. Before these studies, I completed an honors degree in Science and Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo, in Canada. I have a background as a certified personal trainer and I have always had a strong interest in health, exercise, sport, travel and working with people.
After graduating from NZCC in 2012, I had the honor of being selected as the national team chiropractor for the NZ National Ice Hockey Men’s and U18 Programs. This amazing opportunity allowed me to travel around the world with both teams for 4 months as they participated in the 2013 World Championship Tournaments.
Now with over 2 years experience and settling in Australia, I look forward to doing what I love most: teaching and practicing a healthy lifestyle. I hope to share my passion for chiropractic and healthy living with people of all ages
and look forward to being a part of the amazing team here at Hinterland Chiropractic!
