Your Personally Dedicated and Effective Chiropractor in Sylvania
Believing that comprehensive chiropractic care is more than just a quick appointment, we will also take the time to educate you about what is going wrong and how you can help to fix it.
Harmony Chiropractic Center utilizes a combination of methods and techniques to treat the whole patient. We treat almost every joint in the body and we do it with safe and proven techniques.
Specifically, we leverage the Neuromechanical Resilience Method (NRM), a unique approach developed by Dr. Royer and utilized by the entire Harmony Chiropractic Team. It starts with the foundation that Dr. Bryan D. Royer has as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP). This specialty in Sports Medicine means that Dr. Royer has an expert knowledge of sports injuries and physical fitness.
Dr. Royer builds from this foundation by incorporating his knowledge from his certification in Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), as well as his experience as a Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES). He is an expert in the function of the body during movement, from high-level athletics to everyday activities.
Although our chiropractic treatments do include adjusting or manipulating joints, we also have a multitude of other things that we can use to ease pain and suffering. Like many other chiropractic offices in the Sylvania and surrounding area, we have modalities like electric stimulation and intersegmental traction to help with pain – but we also have so much more to offer our patients.

Expert Chiropractor, Specialized Certifications & Customized Treatment
Dr. Royer is credentialed as both a Graston Technique Specialist (GTS) and as a Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner (CKTP). Graston Technique and the Kinesio Taping Method are treatment systems that were developed to address neuromusculoskeletal disorders, particularly helpful in treating athletes. Often, athletes can still practice and play during treatment, which makes these forms of treatment preferable to other techniques.
We have a Rehab Specialist onsite to help people with their corrective exercises and stretches. We help patients get stronger, more flexible, and learn better ways to move and stretch. Our massage therapist will help loosen up tight muscles and work in conjunction with our chiropractic treatments.
Since we have so many options available to help you, patients do not always need to be adjusted. Some patients never even get adjusted.
Our Team Approach to Chiropractic Treatment
At our office in Sylvania, OH, we believe that getting better is a participation sport and that we are part of a team approach to recovery. We will teach you therapeutic exercises to help improve your condition and activities that you can use for recovery in a home exercise program.
If appropriate, we will:
- examine your gait and determine if your condition would benefit from custom foot orthotics
- examine any orthotics provided by another healthcare provider as well.
- assess concerning benefits you may derive from Graston Technique or Kinesio Taping
- discuss diet changes and supplements that will help decrease inflammation in your body
- reduce your pain
Under Dr. Royer’s direction, the Harmony Chiropractic Team combines these techniques to evaluate, treat, and strengthen patients through the Neuromechanical Resilience Method (NRM). Utilizing this approach, our team can help you to avoid injury as you continue to challenge your body and push your limits. We can help you get back into the game by identifying neuromusculoskeletal imbalances, followed by correcting them.
The Neuromechanical Resilience Method can help optimize performance in athletics and life by applying an advanced understanding of musculoskeletal function and performance enhancement. Our team offers individualized care that extends beyond spinal adjustment to include direct treatment of muscles, joints, and connective tissues. We focus on total body wellness and reaching optimal functioning, not just reducing pain, by being passionate proponents of physical fitness.
The Only Chiropractic Sylvania Team Dedicated to Unique Treatment Plans
We are the only healthcare providers in the area who offers this combination of unique techniques that have been used on elite athletes in the Olympics and professional sports.
These injuries can be the result of acute trauma to the muscles or joints or repetitive movements associated with the activity. Utilizing the Neuromechanical Resilience Method, we will help keep you on the track or get you back in the game quickly.
Here at Harmony Chiropractic, we take our time with our patients and to not try to cram as many appointments as possible into one day, as we refuse to treat patients in an assembly line. We usually work a few different treatments with a person, and allow time to provide proper treatment.
Board-Certified Functional Neurology Specialty
As a specialist in functional neurology, Dr. Royer also specializes in neurological disorders and offers unique treatments for conditions such as numbness and tingling, vertigo, headaches (migraine or tension), movement disorders, and post-concussion syndrome. He is the only Board-Certified Functional Neurologist in the Toledo area. He is certified as a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB). Dr. Royer has taken over 900 hours of post-graduate education in functional neurology and was required to pass a rigorous written and practical examination process in order to receive his specialty.
