Because Quality of Life Means Everything!


Integrative Chiropractic utilizes structural correction chiropractic with active rehab to rehabilitate the spinal dysfunctions causing your symptoms and functional loss.

The goal of our care is to have the patient improve symptomatically, functionally, and structurally and most importantly teach you how to take care of your spine so you’re less likely to be dependent on doctors in the future.

Whether you’re looking for relief from severe chronic pain, searching for ways to beat the aches and pains of day-to-day living, or seeking the “Holy Grail” of optimal health and peak performance, you’ve come to the right place.

I think you will find we are a little different from other health care providers. It’s not just our commitment to providing first-class health care through natural chiropractic treatments or our great rates that provide a fantastic value for our patients. It’s our whole philosophy.

You see we are passionate about wellness on a structural, nutritional, and even emotional level That’s why once you are out of pain-whether it be back pain, neck pain, headaches, extremity pain, or other issues- we will teach you how to stay pain free while maximizing your “TOTAL HEALTH” for good.

We will not keep you coming back every week for years on end like some chiropractors do. We will get to the cause of your problem and correct it naturally and thoroughly so you can continue living your life the way you desire.

Please take a few minutes to browse our website and get acquainted. Then give us a call (205) 637-1363 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Why Integrative Chiropractic?

My name is Dr. Ryan N. Russell. As you’ll read, the story of how I came to be a Doctor of Chiropractic was no mistake. My journey from discomfort, pain and fear to wellness, relief and happiness is a very personal story.

The first step in the correction of the spine, is known as the MIX, involves increasing spinal flexibility , spinal disc hydration, and decreasing tight muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the spine through the patient’s use of specialized equipment.

Dr Ryan Russell’s treatment approach is based on clinical experience, scientific theory and individual patient preferences. This method takes a radically different approach to treating scoliosis than what mainstream doctors  typically recommend.

Neck pain is often related to loss of the normal curve of the neck. This irritates the nerves in the cervical area and localizes the pain accordingly. Usually the cause is pinched nerves in the cervical area or inflammatory processes around them. In this case, to achieve a long-term effect, it is necessary to rehabilitate the soft tissues and to treat all spinal dysfunctions.

Conditions We Treat

Unlike many other chiropractors in the Birmingham, AL area – we deliver overall wellness by unlocking and unleashing your body’s full potential.

While each person will experience symptoms differently, any of the following could indicate a back pain:

  • Localized back pain
  • Shooting pains
  • Stiffness and achy
  • Radiating pain into the legs and feet

Neck pain is often related to loss of the normal curve of the neck. This irritates the nerves in the cervical area and localises the pain accordingly. 

Recent studies have shown that the majority of headaches are caused by the neck due to abnormal spinal alignment and abnormal postures. They most commonly are from the loss of the normal lordosis or cervical curve  and forward head posture. We employ several techniques to correct or improve the cause and get you back to reduced or headache-free living!

Disc Protrusions and Herniations

A herniated disk can irritate nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness or weakness in an arm or leg. On the other hand, many people experience no symptoms from a herniated disk. Most people who have a herniated disk don’t need surgery to correct the problem.

Sciatica & Leg Pain

Sciatica refers to pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the leg. It is caused by injury to or pressure on the sciatic nerve and can involve multiple lumbar spinal nerves that control the legs. Sciatica is a symptom of another problem usually related to abnormal curvature in the low back, osteoarthritis, and spinal disc protrusions and herniations


Whiplash refers to an injury of the neck that is the result of a sudden excessive force that causes the neck and head to jerk forward and then backward or vice versa, such as in a auto crash. The injury typically affects muscles, discs, nerves, ligaments, and tendons in the delicate structure of the neck.

I had severe stiffness, pain, and discomfort. In the mornings, it was difficult putting on my shoes and socks. After one visit, felt like the gates of heaven opened. Now 4 visits in, I feel 1,000% better. This guy and his staff are truly “miracle workers” 🙌🏿. I’m afraid of what happens if I miss a visit. One of the best decisions I’ve made.... thanks doc

Dr. Russell and his staff are exceptional! They have formal training for degenerative conditions as well as deformities of the spine. They have the latest technology for diagnosis and treatment, including digital imaging. Dr. Russell has been able to pinpoint and minimize my pain in both the cervical and lumbar spine. If you need relief, I recommend Integrative chiropractic!

I got in a wreck a few weeks ago and have pretty intense pain in my neck and back. Ryan and his staff have been so great! Always so sweet and caring. The treatment has also been wonderful— and extremely helpful. They are really professional and make sure I know why they are doing certain things and what all my paperwork means. I always feel better when I leave!!

I have dealt with back, neck and shoulder issues after car accidents for the past 12 years and have seen several chiropractors, physical therapist and neurological specialist for treatment. Dr. Russell and the Integrative Chiropractic staff have not only improved my condition tremendously through treatments, adjustments and take home exercise equipment, but have given me a new outlook on life and my future. I am so grateful to have found them. They have been the answer to my prayers.

Lower back/neck pains definitely progressed over the years with consistent working out! Had no clue the shape they were in until I came to Ryan! Long time friend and definitely should’ve started therapy with him much earlier. Anyone that is experiencing any sort of back/neck pain, I highly recommend giving Ryan a shot. You will not think twice about continuing forward with the healing process! I have been going and will still be going weekly for the months to come. Keep up the good work guys!

I would like to give praise to Dr. Russell. I’ve had severe upper back pain for years. I’ve tried everything you can imagine, from prescription pain medications to herbs, &CBD. I even have a TENS unit. All of these only slightly dull the pain. After only one visit to Dr. Russell, he realigned my spine & I had instant relief!!!! Please do not waste your money on anyone else. He’s the best for a reason. I will be seeing him as often as I can afford. He is truly amazing. He’s also very kind, patient & considerate.
