If you haven’t heard of his name yet, you’ve undoubtedly seen his posts and videos of him talking about the importance of chiropractic care shared by dozens of your friends online. Through using social media, it is how he’s setting himself apart from the rest. He is continuously amplifying his voice to emphasize the significance of chiropractic as an option for health and wellness.
Before it all came to be, his journey of finding what his passion was started with traveling to different parts of the world being exposed to international culture and education. Dr. Ravi Patel was a first-generation American born in a suburb called Des Plaines near Chicago, Illinois. At that time, he did not understand why he had to go from place to place, but later on, he would realize how it was meant to happen.
The beginning of his travel around the world was when he was sent to a boarding school called G.D. Birla Memorial School, located in Ranikhet, India. Dr. Ravi recalls, unlike the rest of the kids in class, he was not academically talented. He had to try harder, study harder, and read harder than the rest of his classmates. While the rest are already playing and running around, Patel would spend time in his room to catch up with the lessons. No matter how many hours he needed, Patel dedicated all his time to learning. This experience made him grow by not just learning how to read and write in three different languages, but also realizing the true potential that he had from within.
Soon enough, he completed his Bachelor of Science in Biology at Loyola University and Masters in Public Health at Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois. Along with pursuing his education, he also worked towards helping people as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). With a developing interest in healthcare, Patel decided to take the MCAT to pursue a career in medicine. He scored in the 97th percentile of the MCAT and went on to his career path towards health and wellness. Throughout his career, he worked for different types of healthcare professionals such as Chiropractors, Surgeons, Physicians, Cardiologists, and Physical therapists to get a precise idea of his professional life.
At the same time, he handled his family business in the hotel industry alongside his parents, where he started scratching the surface of entrepreneurship and hotel management. Because of this experience of overlooking multi-million dollar properties, he was able to learn and develop his skillset in business that allowed him to connect his dreams to entrepreneurship.
It was when he watched a patient improve in health through chiropractic care that Patel realized what he was meant to do. It changed his perspective on health and wellness entirely and decided to pursue his career in Chiropractic Medicine at Life Chiropractic College West in 2016. It was at this time that he saw the potential of social media as a powerful tool in spreading more awareness of chiropractic care.
When he went on a service trip to Mumbai, India, it changed his life completely. Ravi saw the need for more chiropractic care, he then decided to give back to the community by returning every year. Spreading awareness was very important to Dr. Ravi Patel. Spreading awareness to not only Bollywood Celebrities and major influencers in India, but also working towards establishing a long-lasting idea on how important chiropractic care can be for an individual. His experience even further validates that Instagram can help spread more awareness about the benefits of chiropractic care.
Since then, Dr. Ravi Patel not only uses his social media to spread awareness, through partnerships with the biggest brands in health and wellness, he can provide the most state-of-the-art technology to his patients.
Dr. Ravi Patel began on his journey to find his passion, but little did he know, it was a way to bring him closer to what matters most: improving the quality of life in individuals through chiropractic medicine. In finding yourself, it’s also where you find what you can do for everybody else.
