Dr. Ron Sweeney, D.C. is a chiropractor serving the Olathe, KS and and greater Kansas City areas.
Dr. Ron, as the son of career military parents, grew up all over the globe. He was born in Virginia; moved to the former West Germany at the age of two, Nebraska at the age of seven, and northern Japan at the age of 13. He finished high school in northwest Florida and is a graduate of Florida State University, where he achieved his Bachelor of the Arts Degree a double major in Psychology and German Language. Dr. Ron went on to earn a Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree from Life University College of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia. While at Life University, he served in many different roles including Chief Content Editor of the Vital Source Student Newspaper, VP of the ΔΣΧ chiropractic fraternity, President of the campus chapter of the World Congress of Chiropractic Students, and a founding member of the campus chapter of the Student International Federation of Chiropractors and Organizations. Following his time in school, Dr. Ron practiced chiropractic in the Jesús María district of Lima, Perú.
Dr. Ron works with patients of all ages, including pediatric and geriatric populations. He has studied several chiropractic techniques, including both manual and low force/instrument-adjusting approaches and upper cervical-specific techniques (Gonstead, Diversified, Thompson, Activator, Grostic Blair, Atlas-Orthogonal, Toggle-Recoil, Torque-Release, and Sacro-Occipital Techniques, to name a few). He is committed to the Lasting Purpose described by Life University's founder, Dr. Sid Williams, '…to give, love, do, and serve out of sense of abundance' and is firmly committed to the principle that every man, woman, and child with a spine should be afforded the opportunity—from birth—to be checked for vertebral subluxation and, if need be, adjusted.
Dr. Ron uses chiropractic care as an opportunity to assist people re-take control of their own health and vitality. His goal is not to treat any specific condition, as symptoms are all too often a secondary expression of a more serious underlying cause. By treating the person and getting to the root cause of the problem (interference to the optimal function of the nervous system), patients are able to enjoy improvements in all aspects of their health and wellness. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Ron will be able to create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractors, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
