Dr. Rylan Pearson
Dr. Rylan was born in California but soon moved to Chamberlain, South Dakota. After high school, he joined the Marines. While serving he sustained an injury, was medically discharged, and went to further his education at Mitchell Tech where he graduated as a Lineman. Then, a fall on the job caused major injury to his right foot and many surgeries later, he decided to switch careers and become a Chiropractor. In 2019 Dr. Rylan made the choice to amputate his right foot to avoid further bone fusions and constant pain. Now, he loves playing adaptive sports and meeting other amputees and hearing their stories. He graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2021. Dr. Rylan enjoys spending time with his kiddos, fishing, and learning new things.
Dr. Rylan is also a volunteer diplomat with the Sioux Falls area Chamber of Commerce. Time served January 2022-Present. He is also a board member of the Business Resource Network, elected for his first four-year term in March of 2022.
