Meet Dr. David Ritchie

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. David 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. David 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. David opened a practice in California and began helping people of all ages find health through natural means. Dr. David was introduced to functional medicine 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. David uses currently in practice. He became obsessed with nutrition and functional medicine 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. David, his wife Jane and two children, James and Owen decided to relocate out of California. They found a home in Charlotte.

Dr. David spends a lot of time learning the latest and greatest in chiropractic, nutrition and functional medicine. He loves spending time with his wife and kids outdoors in nature or traveling to the mountains or coast. He is always looking for a new place to hike. He is a guitarist and claims to be able to carry a tune. Dr. David also enjoys working out, yoga and he is currently a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
