When Dr. Ashley Ryan, DC and Dr. Zach Ryan opened A to Z Chiropractic they had zero patients when they first opened their doors in Winnetka in 2013. That did not stop them. They had a dream to help others with their wellness needs. Their goal at A to Z Chiropractic was to do everything possible to increase your well-being, treating you as a member of our practice family. With this vision their practice grew just by word of mouth and moved their office to Crystal Lake.
In 2018 Dr. Steve Hatcher, DC joined our team. Dr. Steve attended Northern Illinois University, earning his Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2009. After a few short years in the work force, Steve knew it was time to return to school in order to fulfill his dream of helping people in the healthcare field. Dr. Steve decided to take that next step and attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 2012. Throughout school, Steve was heavily focused on incorporating multiple areas of rehabilitation in order to develop a unique and effective set of skills to help his patients with the best available evidence-based methods.
In 2022 we also added Physical Therapy with Dr. Evan Corsolini, DPT to our practice changing the name to A to Z Chiropractic and Physical Therapy. Dr. Evan figured out early on that he wanted to help others. Through his own weight loss and fitness journey, along with a few bouts of Physical Therapy for various issues, he knew he wanted to help people feel and move better, so they can live their lives on their own terms without limitations..
Dr. Evan attended Bradley University where he earned a Bachelors of Science in Health Science, and subsequently went on to attend Governors State University where he received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy. After graduating, Dr. Evan worked in an outpatient clinic for almost 4 years where he treated a wide range of orthopedic and neurological conditions. He has pursued continuing education in chronic pain management, low back pain, and treating fitness athletes. He also specializes in treating vestibular conditions, dizziness and balance issues. Dr. Evan believes that graded and progressive movement and resistance training are essential to reducing pain and building resilience so that your body can perform the functional activities you need it to.
In 2022 we also added Dr. Gabby Laurino, DC. Dr. Gabby attended Illinois State University, earning her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science in 2014. She then went to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA where she specialized in Activator protocol (Basic, Advanced, & Extremities), Thompson, Diversified, Gonstead, NIMMO, soft tissue, and Extremities. She was nominated at Palmer College of Chiropractic for a Clinical Excellence Award.
In 2018, Dr. Gabby took a postgraduate certification program in the advancement of Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (VSMT) at the Healing Oasis Wellness Center in Sturtevant, WI. This is the only accredited school for Animal Chiropractic. She successfully completed the State Approved Post-Graduate Certification Program in Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy (CVSMT). 226 hours of post graduate education specifically in animal chiropractic emphasizing functional neurology, muscular, and osseous anatomy specific to small and large animals.
The goal at A to Z Chiropractic & Physical Therapy is to do everything possible to increase your well-being, treating you as a member of our practice family.
