Travis’ involvement in medicine began while volunteering as an EMT for a rural ambulance service as a teen and continued in college as he worked graveyard shifts, full-time.
Responding to the unexpected and treating those who had suddenly met the most vulnerable and weakest moments of their life was deeply humbling and impactful. These early, life-altering years defined how he witnessed trauma, injury, and the healing process. Treating and understanding how the body stores trauma remains one of his greatest areas of personal research and devotion.
He earned his doctorate from Northwestern Health Sciences University and became interested in integrative medicine. After graduate school he founded YHS Integrative Clinic, which later transformed into Healcove Clinic. Over the past 10 years he has helped create a platform for collaborative healthcare.
He has been an active leader and teacher in the San Diego community. You can find him pouring over a new book, on the sunny beaches, family in tow.
Dr. Ryan Silbernick
The bruising years of high school and collegiate wrestling found Ryan recovering in the hands of a sports chiropractor. The experience of performance and recovery launched his studies in human biomechanics.
He earned his doctorate from Northwestern Health Sciences University and joined the YHS Integrative Clinic (now Healcove) team in 2016. His interests lie in preventative medicine, strength training, and athletic recovery.
Dr. Ryan has enjoyed working with high level athletes, military, weekend warriors, the desk-bound, and those that just want to push the restart button on their health. He uses a combination of manual and active therapies to help his patients recover from injury, treat chronic pain, and improve performance. All with the aim to build a foundation that can withstand the test of time and keep his patients functioning well into their later years.
Dr. Ryan avidly studies preventative medicine, rehabilitation, and strength & conditioning research. He is part of a transforming profession and aspires to revolutionize the way patients identify chiropractic. He regularly teaches small group classes in the community, at their place of work, and in the Clinic.
He enjoys being at the dog beach, in the gym, or on the golf course. He looks forward to being a part of your health journey.
