Dr. Bryne Willey DC, MS was born and raised right here in Springfield, Illinois. During early childhood, Dr. Willey’s father suffered a tragic accident in which his back was broken in multiple areas as a result of a workplace accident. His father was given no option other than to be placed in a body cast. There was no plan to regain the quality of life he previously had; no hope, just acceptance. Mr. Willey could no longer play catch and chase fly-balls with his son like he used to. Throughout Dr. Willey’s years as a competitive baseball player, both high school and collegiate, he was searching for that special something that would make a difference in the lives of others. As he was researching his options he decided to shadow a Doctor of Chiropractic. He was impressed with the variety of conditions and ailments being treated, the smiles on the patients’ faces as they entered the office, and the warm feeling they expressed when they left. He was also consumed with the feeling of being able to help people from all walks of life with many different ailments, including the one in which his father suffered from.
During Dr. Willey’s studies at Logan College of Chiropractic, he was trained in several chiropractic techniques as well as becoming certified in acupuncture. Along with his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree, he successfully earned his Master’s in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. He also earned the Red Badge Award for Excellence in Clinical Application of Rehabilitation for his work at the BIOFREEZE Sports and Rehabilitation Center. With these three qualifications, Dr. Willey is able to not only diagnose numerous conditions, but also successfully treat the problem with the goal of helping the patient obtain optimal health.
Dr. Willey and his wife, Kellie, continue to be active in their church and service in their community. Kellie, a former collegiate soccer player, is currently a third grade teacher at Chatham Elementary and a high school soccer coach for the Chatham Women’s team. Together they raise their daughter named Ava Lynn. They enjoy leading active lives and spending weekends with their family and friends.
