  • Dr.
    Ralph Schipske

    Dr. Ralph Schipske is a native of Hamilton Square, New Jersey. He received his first chiropractic adjustment at just 2 weeks old.  A chiropractic patient throughout his life, he was just 12 years old when he decided to become a Chiropractor. 

    Dr. Schipske attended Ursinus College where he studied Biology as an undergraduate. After completing his degree, he attended Life University (School of Chiropractic) and in 2000 received a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree.  While in school, Dr. Ralph was an active student instructor, attending and teaching seminars and clubs. He uses over a dozen different chiropractic techniques and is an expert in sports chiropractic, exercise and rehabilitation.

    Dr. Schipske uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning.  Dr. Schipske takes a 'whole person' approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Schipske will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives. 

     Following graduation Dr. Ralph practiced in New Jersey for several years before in 2003 coming back to the area he fell in love with while at Life University.

     Dr. Ralph, his wife Susan, and their 4 wonderful children – Sophia, Isabella, Tucker and Noah live in the area and are active in the community.
