Dr. Brian Schnitta is the founder and owner of Natural Way Chiropractic Centers. He attended University of Mississippi where he received his bachelor’s degree in Psychology. While there he sustained an injury playing football that led him to personally try chiropractic. The results he received convinced him that he wanted to become a chiropractor. He moved to Kansas City, and in 1997 he received his doctorate in chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College. On February 8, 1999, he opened Natural Way Chiropractic in Overland Park.
Dr. Brian is dedicated chiropractor in Overland Park with the goal of helping his patients achieve optimum health and wellness. He believes that by removing interference in the nervous system it allows the body to heal itself. His time playing SEC football taught him leadership skills and how to focus on working together and listening, all of which he has found to be a critical part of health care. He believes that a patient’s care should be a team effort. He was voted “Doctor of the Year’ in 2007 by his peers. He enjoys spending his free time with his beautiful wife Kate and their two children.
My name is Dr. Brian Rissman and I received my Doctorate of Chiropractic from Logan College of Chiropractic in 2002. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Northeast Missouri State University.
My chiropractic philosophy is to take a “hands-on” approach to reducing and eliminating stress on the nervous system, allowing the body to function at its highest level. The chiropractic adjustment reduces symptoms caused by nerve and disc interference. My scope of practice is well-rounded with many techniques to suit your individual needs.
It is my mission in the healing arts to educate your spine and nervous system to operate at their fullest potential. I pride myself in the relationships and rapport I have built with my patients. I truly enjoy the satisfaction of helping others receive the best care possible.
