Our Clinic

Drs. Ryan and Allyson Kathalynas formed their business, Kathalynas Spine, Sport, and Rehabilitation, in 2010 after graduating with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Logan University in Chesterfield, MO. The husband and wife team established and grew their practice for the next ten years in Dr. Ryan’s hometown of West Frankfort, IL. During this time, the doctors treated patients in three separate locations trying to fulfill the demands of their growing practice. With their patients’ best interests in mind, the doctors were prompted to build their dream practice. Construction of the new facility began at the end of 2019 and was completed at the beginning of 2020. Drs. Ryan and Allyson Kathalynas now proudly serve their patients at their new location, which is just six miles away in Dr. Allyson’s hometown of Benton, IL.

Stacey DeRossett

Stacey was born and raised in West Frankfort, IL. After high school, she pursued a career in a factory setting for several years but knew it was not where she wanted to work for the rest of her life. She saw herself in a healthcare facility, interacting and helping patients. In November of 2012, a quiet and shy individual started that dream when she began working part-time with Drs. Ryan and Allyson Kathalynas. Almost eight years later, both she and the practice have grown. Stacey is now a full-time employee and enjoys working with all the patients that come into the clinic. In her free time, Stacey enjoys spending time with her fiance, Josh, and their three boys: Giovanni, Brody, and Bentley.
