Dr. Richard Worley
Dr. Richard Worley (Dr. Ditto) was born over 10 weeks premature and spent days struggling to survive. The doctors told his mother that he would always have mental and physical delays. Fortunately, his mother—having been raised in alternative health care minded family—sought help from a Chiropractor. Within a year, Ditto had caught up with his peers physically and mentally. He grew up getting maintenance care from chiropractors to which he attributes his good health and his passion to help people of all ages live healthier, happier lives.
Dr. Ditto graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in 2005. He worked under the wing of several chiropractors in order to broaden his knowledge of Chiropractic technique, business, and clinic space efficiency before opening his own office in 2007.
He married his wife, Kris, in 2005 and now have three beautiful children who also receive adjustments on a regular basis. Back to top
Dr. Ashley Stranahan
Dr. Ashley was initially introduced to chiropractic through getting care for her horse, Wolfie (chiropractic care isn’t just for humans!). She grew up riding horses and felt that adjustments helped Wolfie feel better. After seeing the amazing results from her horse, and one too many falls from naughty horses, she began seeing a chiropractor herself and was able to feel the benefits of chiropractic care first hand. Dr. Ashley already had a passion for helping people and her pre-med background set her up perfectly for a career in chiropractic. She found that treating the body naturally and allowing it to function properly was far more healing than taking pills for relief.
Dr. Ashley and her husband moved to Austin after they graduated from Parker University. She has a special interest in treating pregnant mamas and kiddos. Dr. Ashley is Webster Certified and is a member of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association).
In her spare time, Dr. Ashley likes having adventures with her husband and their son, Case, hanging out with family, and low key nights at home. Back to top
Dr. Tim Stranahan
Tim Stranahan, D.C. has been serving Austin Families since 1993. His favorite thing about being a Chiropractor is watching the children in his practice grow up with healthy bodies and spines. Dr Tim has treated many celebrities and athletes, from weekend warriors to Olympic gold medalists. He is very active in the chiropractic community as a nationally known speaker, teacher and mentor in the profession. After running one of the largest Chiropractic offices in the city for many years, he decided to slow the pace of life and focus on family.
Dr. Tim is also an avid mountain biker, fly fisherman and competitive shooter, as well as being a former nationally ranked competitive barefoot water skier. He is currently serving his community through his church and Scouts BSA at the local troop and council levels. In addition to his personal and professional pursuits, Dr. Tim cannot imagine spending life without his wife and life partner, Meike and their two beautiful children. Back to top
