“In order to help you, we must first get to know you.”

Inspiration

Dr. Roger Lyss didn’t need to look far for inspiration when deciding to become a chiropractor. “My father, who was a chiropractor, began teaching me chiropractic techniques at age 14. I began attending chiropractic seminars with him at age 15.” Dr. Lyss also assisted his father in teaching seminars before attending Palmer Chiropractic College. This unique background has provided him the strong desire to naturally heal patients.

Education and Background

Dr. Lyss graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1984 from Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa. The day after graduation, he married his wife, Elizabeth Lyss.

Dr. Lyss moved his growing family to Springfield, OH in 1985, where he joined the practice of Dr. David Polen. “Dr. Polen’s specialty was nutrition combined with chiropractic. He was a brilliant man, when it came to nutrition, that taught me a great deal.”

In 1989, the Lyss family moved to Gahanna, OH. Dr. Lyss opened his practice shortly after, in April of 1990. Within 6 months, he had a waiting list. “I believe in trying to help those who have yet to find help.” With this mindset, Dr. Lyss has helped numerous patients, locally and throughout the country.

Dr. Lyss stays abreast of new information by steadily attending post-graduate chiropractic and nutritional seminars. Dr. Lyss is also a member of the Ohio State Chiropractic Association.

Family and Personal Interests

Dr. Roger Lyss enjoys spending time with his wife, Liz, whom he met in the 8th grade. They have 2 sons, 1 daughter, a daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren. Dr. Lyss likes spending time out in nature as much as possible.

Nutrition and Chiropractic

Dr. Lyss has not lost sight of his passion for healing. “Patients are the heart of my practice….and all of my patients know my heart.” Lyss Chiropractic Center is a location for physical, mental and emotional healing through nutrition and chiropractic techniques. “We empower our patients to take control, support them in making good choices and to reach their full potential in a healthful lifestyle. To be a part of a patient’s life, witnessing their health progress and seeing their life change is a privilege. It’s my biggest reward.”

"Educating patients on optimal health is my goal…. Helping people heal is my passion!"

Inspiration

I have always been interested in medicine and helping people. I thought I wanted to be a medical doctor, but I had personal experience that changed that for me. My brother, father and step-father were diagnosed with cancer. They endured surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy. I came to the realization that becoming a medical doctor was not for me, as these experiences ignited my passion for health prevention of disease and functional medicine.

Education & Background

I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Environmental Science and a minor in Business from St. Norbert College in DePere, WI in 1993. I then went on to Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO. I met my husband, Dr. Charles Irvine while studying at Logan. Graduating in 1998, I worked as a chiropractor in Woodstock, IL, before marrying my husband and moving to Columbus, OH. (The movie Groundhog Day was filmed in beautiful Woodstock, IL)

Family and Personal Interests

Chuck and I have one adult son. I love to travel and spend time with my family, as well as gardening. I enjoy cooking home-made meals and entertaining friends and family. I get such pleasure making healthy, delicious tasting food, mostly from scratch.

When cooking, I focus on making food from the Paleo and Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) diets for myself and family. I make bone broth, ferment coconut kefir/yogurt, kombucha, water kefir, sauerkraut pickles and vegetables.

I continue learning and stay up to date on the latest research by attending post graduate nutritional and functional medicine seminars. This allows me to keep my passion for healing ignited and gives me an advantage to help heal and educate my patients.

Nutrition and Chiropractic

My passion is to educate patients on how to optimize a lifestyle and environment that can maximize their healing potential. Suffering from Hashimoto disease (an autoimmune hypothyroid disease),   I know exactly what it feels like to be really sick. I have empathy and compassion for anyone that is suffering with dysfunction or disease. I am here to help people regain their optimal health and maintain a balanced lifestyle. It’s my calling.

"What our patients are saying"
  • My name is Chris Whitcraft and I have been a patient of Dr. Lyss since 2006. I was a professional super cross athlete that relied on treatment from Dr. Lyss, due in part to the impact and injury my body experienced on a regular basis. I have endured many physical hardships through my career in which I firmly believe if it weren’t for Dr. Lyss, I would not be here walking in the condition I am. I have been taken care of for alignments, broken bones, concussions, and a temporary paralysis that I was not supposed to recover from. I firmly believe Lyss Chiropractic is a strong reason why I can walk today. There were ailments I endured that only Dr. Lyss was able to crack. I have an eight vertebra fusion that I only trust Dr. Lyss to alleviate the daily pain I endure. I even have a 5 month old baby girl who sees Dr. Lyss and he eases the tension and fussiness I see her experience. The knowledge from Dr. Lyss is unmatchable and when you combine the chiropractic adjustments with the supplemental assistance offered, I don’t think you will find this anywhere else. The entire staff treats you like family. There is no other doctor I would recommend aside from Lyss Chiropractic.

  • After years of horseback riding, my body was screaming (neck and back). I finally went to a chiropractor and found the experience rough and the adjustments never holding. Then a friend recommended Dr. Jennifer Irvine. What a different experience! From the first adjustment everything was different. I felt like I had a new body and eight years later I’m still coming back a very happy patient.

  • I consider myself most privileged to have been under the watchful care of Dr. Jennifer Irvine and Dr. Roger Lyss since the spring of 2007. I had come to them at a critical time when I was experiencing what Dr. Jen so aptly referred to as “a healing crisis”. My weight was dangerously low and unable to eat most foods because of violent allergic reactions. I was literally wasting away. I know that without their intervention, I most likely would not have survived. Both have listened carefully, responded compassionately and guided me gently through critical years of recovery. I am most grateful for their commitment to even the most challenging patients. I believe Dr. Jen and Dr. Lyss to be God’s provision for me and I continue to be blessed by their practice, experiencing ever increasing strength and wellbeing and once again, I am able to enjoy being involved in life! Might I add that the Lyss Chiropractic support staff also graciously assists in making even the most difficult times most pleasant.

  • Dr. Jen is an amazing doctor! From the moment you walk into the room she makes you feel comfortable, listens to you, and she truly cares about you and making you feel better. Our whole family sees her, including my 5-year-old and little baby. I don’t know what we would do without her! We are so thankful to have her in our life!

  • I strongly recommend Lyss Chiropractic. The entire staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. The doctors are very committed to providing high quality care to all of their patients. My family is extremely grateful for everything we have learned about health and wellness from both Dr. Lyss and Dr. Irvine and for the great care they have provided to all of us.
