About Dr. Kip - My Chiropractic Story

Email Dr. Kip

mayo_01.jpg

From 1980 to 1986 I played full contact football both in Junior High and High School.  My team mates and I endured form tackling drills every practice.  One day when I was a freshman I told my mom my lower back hurt.  She told me to go see her chiropractor.  I told her the typical male response - “I don’t need a doctor”.  A few days later I asked if she could drive me to her chiropractor.  I hadn’t missed a game or a practice, but the ache in my back was getting worse.  The doctor helped me, and I have been a believer in chiropractic ever since.

Although my back was rarely a problem again, six years of football and other sports had taken its toll on my neck by the time I was a young adult.  I visited another chiropractor.  The x-ray of my neck told the tale - I had cervical degeneration.  This explained why my neck was often sore and at times became painful.  The doctor put me on a treatment plan to slow the degenerative process and restore the proper curve in my neck.

mayo_02.jpgYears later, after a career as a coach and teacher, I decided to help kids in a different way, I returned to school to become a doctor of chiropractic.  While at Parker College of Chiropractic, I learned the full scope of chiropractic care.  Chiropractors help with more than just muscular problems.  The nervous system is the command center for our bodies.  If there is interference to the nervous system, then something else is also affected in the body.  It may be a muscle, or it may be an organ, the skin, the blood, the immune system, or any thing else in the body!  Chiropractors remove nerve interference.

Now, my goal is to raise a wellness generation by helping as many people as I can, especially children.  My hope is that people view chiropractic as their first stop for any health care need. Drugs and surgery are options, but should not be at the top of one’s list.  People should give their own body a chance to heal itself, and chiropractors help their patients do this.

Through the years I have leaned heavily on my beautiful wife, Laina, who has always supported me.  Her love for me was essential years ago when I decided to change my career.  She too believes in the chiropractic lifestyle, and together we are raising our three children to view the body as a whole, and let it heal itself.  My kids have heard me say it many times, “The power that made the body heals the body.”

Psalms 139: 14 declares, “I will praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” In a sense, this verse refers to the incredible nature of our physical bodies.  The human body is the most complex and unique organism in the world, and every aspect of it, down to the tiniest microscopic cell reveals that we are fearfully and wonderfully made by our supreme creator.  Our bodies deserve a chance to heal themselves.  I truly believe that with God all things are possible.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been going to chiropractors off and on for many years but only when my back was hurting to a point where I had trouble walking due to the back pain. I’ve had a bad back off and on for as long as I can remember so I was anxious to find permanent relief. I started going to Dr. Kip about 2 years ago and after several months I was put on a maintenance program, initially twice a week and months later, once a week. Since I’ve been on the maintenance program, I’ve had no regular issues. These regular visits also have other benefits due to discussions with the Dr. and office staff and info on the “health T.V.”"

  • "I have been coming to see Dr. Kip for almost a year. I started coming in because of my back pain but I wasn’t really sure what chiropractic was or how it could help. Today I feel I have a much better understanding and that chiropractic is a very good and necessary asset of healing. My back pain is not so severe now. It feels better, and when it does begin to hurt I know what to do to make it better. The kindness and understanding of the office staff give the whole experience a calming and reassuring vibe."
    -Joycie G.
  • "Our family has been coming to see Dr. Kip for 2 years. We came in initially because Julie was having severe shoulder pain along with numbness in her arms. She thought it was linked to a problem in her neck. Brian suffered from migraines every few months. We didn’t know much about chiropractic care before. We’d had some in the past but never on a regular basis. I believe our family is healthier as a result of chiropractic care. In fact this year has been the healthiest year for our family with no sickness other than colds and Brian experiencing fewer migraines! We love the staff, of course, and the affordable care plan allows our entire family to receive care."
    -Brian K. and Family
