The Doctor


Dr. Ryan Briggs is originally from upstate New York. He moved to Florida with his family when he was 1 and has resided in the greater Tampa Bay area ever since. After graduating from highschool in Spring Hill, Florida, he attended Palm Beach Atlantic University and graduated in 2008. He then attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida and graduated in 2012 with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree. He began his chiropractic career working under his cousin, Dr. Gabriel Boze in Spring Hill, Florida. Dr. Boze was able to give Dr. Briggs a head start on patient management and care right out of school. In April of 2013, an oppotunity became availible at Smith Chiropractic. After and interview and a job offer from Dr. Rick Smith, Dr. Briggs began working at Smith Chiropractic on April 5, 2013. After 5 years of teaching, guidance, and patient managment with Dr. Smith, Dr. Briggs purchased the practice in early 2018 and Dr. Smith retired soon after. Dr. Briggs' goal and vision for the office and chiropractic care is the same as the ideas shared by both Dr. Rick Smith, and his father, Dr. Robert Smith, who started the practice in 1962. At Smith Chiropractic, Dr. Briggs and staff strive to continue the tradition of serving the Winter Haven Community with the best care that chiropractic can offer for many years to come.
