Dr Ryan Yiap is the owner and Principal Chiropractor at Mills Chiropractic & Healthcare. He is originally from Malaysia and migrated to Australia with his family when he was quite young. He grew up here, studied and graduated from Murdoch University and has been practicing in Perth for over 10 years now. During this time he has seen:
- people of all ages; from bubs to the elderly
- those in different occupations; from office jobs to manual labourers
- and people with a whole range of conditions; from a simple sprain/strain to a inflamed disc bulge
Each person is different and techniques are chosen to suit what is needed at that point in time. Dr Ryan Yiap is proficient in Manual Chiropractic Adjustments as well as low force techniques. He incorporates massage, trigger point therapy and/or dry needling into his consultations to help the body relax prior to receiving adjustments. He will also utilise Kinesiotaping techniques when lymph drainage or support is needed for the body.
His interest in Chiropractic began when he knew he wanted to be in the health industry and to use his hands. He started researching different occupations and came across the Murdoch University Chiropractic website which explained that the word "Chiros" in greek, stands for hands on healing. He was drawn to the natural, conservative, surgery and drug free approach to healthcare and wanted to help others in that way.
Since then, his knowledge of Chiropractic Philosophy and the relationship of different parts of the body has grown. Everything is connected to each other one way or another. Pain in one area may be caused by pre-existing issues from a previous injury or an imbalance in another area. He is dedicated to helping people discover their cause of pain and what can be done about it to help and prevent it from occurring again.
Dr Ryan Yiap is married with two children. He loves to spend his spare time with his family, going out and spending quality time together. He is a deacon at his local Christian church and gets involved with leading, singing and playing guitar. He is gentle, caring, compassionate and easy to get along with.
