Meet the Doctors – Megan and Adam Ries

We appreciate you taking the time to meet the doctors. We are both 2009 graduates of Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. While we received our degrees in Biology, we also participated in music ensembles and met through mutual friends from those.

We attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. We both graduated summa cum laude in 2013. During our time in chiropractic school, we studied techniques focused on locating and correcting structural shifts of the spine. Today, we practice our unique focus NeuroStructural Correction in West Des Moines and work to guide our patients through their health challenges and optimize their life.

We live in the Beaverdale neighborhood of Des Moines with our two cats and backyard chickens. Both of us enjoy running the miles of local trails and hiking through the many local and state parks in the area. We also volunteer at church and operate a “Little Free Pantry,” in our front yard.

Keystone Chiropractic: What’s in a Name?

meet the doctors

Keystone Chiropractic isn’t a name we simply stumbled upon. So, what’s in a name?

A stone archway is one of the strongest and most stable structures in architecture. Each stone supports the load while evenly transferring it to the foundation. The MOST important block is the Keystone, the block in the center, without which the entire structure would fail.

If optimal health were an arch, it would include blocks such as diet, exercise, rest, and caring for your mental health. The Keystone holding everything together is an optimally functioning nerve system, free from obstruction.

While eating well and exercising are certainly necessary, normal spinal structure and a properly functioning nerve system are the Keystone. These keep everything locked in place. Our focus at Keystone Chiropractic is on restoring YOUR body’s Keystone to help you function and perform at your best.
