Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Garcia was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. In high school, Dr. Garcia was first introduced to Chiropractic in a High School Career Day. This introduction sparked Dr. Garcia’s passion for helping those who are suffering. Dr. Garcia went on to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Loyola University of Chicago. During that time, Dr. Garcia volunteered at the Illinois Masonic Hospital In-Patient Psychiatric Care Floor. The exposure of working with those that suffered from chronic mental illness taught Dr. Garcia to become very patient and compassionate to the suffering of others. Dr. Garcia knew that he wanted to help, but at the same time, didn’t feel that “modern” medicine had all the answers. Dr. Garcia then remembered his Chiropractic introduction from high school and decided to follow a more Wholistic and Vitalistic (Non-Medicine) path. Determined to make a lasting difference in the lives of his future patients, he flew south pursuing his Doctor of Chiropractic from Life University located in Marietta, Georgia and graduated with Honors in 2001.
Dr. Garcia established his Chiropractic practice to care for all patients and not to exclude those patients without medical coverage. Promoting health and wellness within each family and each community has become a guiding principle of the Injury 2 Wellness Centers Mission. Inn addition to caring for those that have been injured in auto accidents or that are suffering from chronic pain. Currently, Injury 2 Wellness Centers has three family Chiropractic clinics helping patients with all of their Chiropractic needs.

Dr. Ritola was born and raised in chilly Northern Michigan where he enjoyed playing multiple sports growing up. He was introduced to Chiropractic when he was in high school after suffering sports-related injuries to his back and neck. He was amazed at how effective Chiropractic care was for correcting the severe spinal dysfunction he had when nothing else worked. His interest in athletics and the human body led him to begin his career in bodywork as a licensed massage therapist. It wasn’t until about ten years later that he realized he wanted to expand his education to include Chiropractic. He then attained his Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Chemistry from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC and his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, Georgia. Dr. Ritola enjoys working with Injury 2 Wellness Center patients that have acute (new) injuries and chronic pain, helping their bodies to heal properly, and teaching them about the benefits of maintaining a healthy spine and nervous system.
