My mission is to educate as many people as I can about these amazing health benefits."

Chiropractor David Ritchie D.C.
Dr. David Ritchie was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. He moved to California shortly after graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a BS degree in Computer Science. Dr. Ritchie suffered with many life-long health challenges including severe migraine headaches, debilitating seasonal allergies, and back and neck pain. Taking the advice of a friend, he found a chiropractor who helped him restore his health and he found complete relief from his symptoms. Dr. Ritchie found an incredible passion for chiropractic and the body's ability to heal itself. He decided to go back to school and graduated from Life Chiropractic College West, cum laude, in 2006.
Dr. Ritchie opened a practice in California and began helping people of all ages find health through natural means. Dr. Ritchie was introduced to clinical nutrition after his first son, James, was born with health issues that neither medicine nor chiropractic were able to help. A colleague was able to help his son in a matter of days using the same techniques Dr. Ritchie uses currently in practice. He became obsessed with clinical nutrition and quickly introduced it into his practice.
"I have seen some absolutely incredible things. When you give the body the opportunity, it can heal. I never underestimate the body's ability to heal itself."
Dr. Ritchie, his wife Jane and two children, James and Owen decided to relocate out of California. They found a home in Charlotte and soon-after he joined the team at Integrative Chiropractic & Natural Medicine.
