Dr. Joe Ramirez, D.C.
Dr. Joe Ramirez, D.C. is the Owner and Doctor of Chiropractic at Dunamis Family Health. He has been in practice since 2011.
He is also passionate about health education and disease prevention as well as sharing messages of hope and transformation as a Teacher (former adjunct professor of Anatomy and Physiology at the University of Arkansas Community College) and Public Speaker. He has developed custom programs for, and been a featured speaker at, a wide variety of places including:
- Illinois Wesleyen University (on the topic of Scoliosis correction)
- Financial and insurance companies such as Allstate, State Farm, The Hartford, and Woodforest National Bank
- Community organizations such as the volunteer COPs in Volusia County, youth sports programs, and churches among others
He decided to attend Chiropractic School based on his personal experience with the life-changing power of Chiropractic. He and his wife saw their health in steep decline and nothing the medical doctors recommended was fixing anything. His wife suffered from migraines, unexplained heart pain, anxiety, and diagnosed Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Doctors said she could not have children and needed to be on hormones for life. Dr. Joe suffered from a crippling autoimmune condition called Ankylosing Spondylitis since the age of 13. It’s an arthritic condition that attacks the spine and causes bones to fuse together, ultimately leading to disability. At 13 years old, he was told by one of his Rheumatologists that he would be completely disabled by the age of 40 based on the rate of his condition’s progression. He was told his only option was medication to slow that progression.
He had been to a Chiropractor in his early teens, but received only symptomatic relief care. That means he was only adjusted where he had pain. He would feel a little better for a while, but it wasn’t fixing anything. So he was very skeptical when his wife dragged him into Dr. Dan Yachter’s office. Dr. Dan took the time to evaluate his entire spine and showed Dr. Joe how the misalignments in his spine were shutting down the normal operation of his immune system. He put together a corrective plan that included Corrective Chiropractic Care, Nutrition Counseling, Detox, and Exercise. Within 2 weeks, Dr. Joe felt alive again for the first time in 17 years. It took every piece of the plan Dr. Dan recommended for him to overcome his autoimmune condition. These are the Core Principles that Dr. Joe utilizes at Dunamis Family Health today.
It was also only 2 weeks after starting his own healing journey that Dr. Joe took steps to leave the IT industry and become a Chiropractor. He attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL, graduating in 2011. He was awarded the prestigious Virgil Strang Philosophy Award, which recognizes the student who has the greatest impact in promoting the principles of Chiropractic throughout the community. Throughout his time at Palmer, Dr. Joe spent hundreds of hours learning corrective adjusting techniques (Pettibon, CBP, and the CLEAR Institute), Functional Nutrition, and Detoxification strategies not taught as part of the traditional Chiropractic curriculum. He knew through his own struggles what he would need to help his patients get truly well.
In his final year of Chiropractic School, Dr. Joe and his wife added a son to their family. This was another Chiropractic miracle for them since medical doctors had said it would be impossible with her PCOS. With God, all things are possible.
Dr. Joe knows what it is like to suffer from poor health and watch loved ones suffer. He brings his passion to serve the sick and suffering of Volusia County with a mission to lead others to the same recovery he experienced and to help many more avoid having to experience it at all.
Dr. Joe grew up in Central Florida, earned his Bachelor’s degree at Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina in 1998 and his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2011.
