Dr. Ryan Macedo
Dr. Ryan Macedo was in practice in the Vancouver, WA area for 9 years prior to moving to Kitsap County with his wife and joining the team at CLC in 2017. Dr. Macedo graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in 2007. He believes if you take care of your body, it will take care of you. The basis of this is to eat well, move well, and think well.
Dr. Ryan was first introduced to chiropractic as a collegiate wrestler. He also played rugby in college and was an elite level competitive fighter. With years of physical contact and injury, he found chiropractic a necessary tool to keep his body in peak shape and able to compete for longer than most.
As a competitive athlete, Dr. Ryan understands that there are several components to a healthy lifestyle. He integrates nutrition, exercise, stress management, as well as a diversified chiropractic technique into his practice. He loves working with people of all ages, ability levels, and lifestyles. He has worked with infants just hours old, to youthful 97-year-olds. He has also worked with high-level athletes, to people who have never played a sport.
In his free time, Dr. Ryan loves spending time with his wife and daughter, being on the water, playing golf, and coaching youth sports. He is a high school wrestling coach and also works with MMA fighters. He brings a light-hearted, humorous approach to practice that helps his patients feel comfortable and at ease right from the beginning.
“I am excited to leave my mark on this community. I love empowering people to take responsibility for their health, and to help them achieve their very best out of life”.

Dr. David Powell
Dr. Dave has been with CLC since September 2010.
A former Naval officer, Dr. Powell experienced chiropractic care for the first time after he was injured on active duty and he has been an active proponent ever since. He is particularly sympathetic to those of us who suffer acute and chronic aches, pains, and injuries from the wear and tear of daily life. “When people reach their late 30’s or early 40’s they start to take notice of their health a little more seriously. I really enjoy working with this population because often for the first time they realize that they can influence the quality of their life” says Dr. Powell. “They don’t have to live with acute and chronic issues; often routine chiropractic adjustments can help”. He is an outstanding adjuster and loves to help people live happier healthier lives.
Before joining the Navy Dr. Powell did graduate work in marriage and family counseling with an emphasis on body-oriented psychotherapy and holistic health. Though not a licensed therapist, he brings this unique perspective to his practice of chiropractic with a clear understanding of the relationship between the mind and body and how it can physically manifest itself as pain or stiffness. Dr. Powell has also earned his animal chiropractic certification for domestic and farm animals. Although this practice is not directly connected with CLC, we are happy to pass along his business card if you are interested in this service for animals.
While not at the office, Dr. Powell enjoys being physically active, and can often be found hiking or working in his garden with his wife Kristina, or paddle boarding with their dogs Eli and Jackson.
