meet the doc
Dr. Rachel Ramirez
Owner / Chiropractor
Hello I am Dr. Rachel Ramirez and I am excited to start treating you at Rivertown Chiropractic!
I was born in Miami, but Jacksonville has been my home since 2006. I worked at The Mayo Clinic for 5 years before deciding to go to Chiropractic College at Palmer in Port Orange, Florida. I was eager to move back to Jacksonville after graduation to share my knowledge and help the people of Jacksonville improve their health.
I chose to become a Chiropractor after I received life changing care early in life. At the age of 12 I suffered from an accident which affected my neck and low back. After an examination with a Chiropractor, I went from feeling scared and in pain, to comforted. He explained what the issue was and reassured me that I would get better with Chiropractic treatment. After the initial adjustments I started to feel less pain, and after a few months of treatment I felt better and was able to resume athletic activity like any other young adult. This is what ignited my passion for the profession. I loved going to the Chiropractor because I felt so much better when I left, and it was such a great experience going to a doctors office where I knew the physician cared about helping people. That stuck with me, and I knew I wanted to touch the lives of others in the same way.
I am considered a Chiropractic Acupuncturist. Chiropractic and Acupuncture complement each other so that patients can improve their outcomes in a shorter period of time and have long lasting results. I have a passion for helping patients not only get out of pain, but also with concerns such as PTSD, smoking cessation, migraines, women and mens health and hormones, anxiety, depression and overall well being.
When I’m not at the office I love to be in the ocean or river, hiking with my dog and going to local art markets to support the community as well as local sporting events. I stay active with group fitness and frequent yoga and cycling classes.
I can’t wait to meet all of you and continue to help you improve your life and meet all of your health goals!
