Dr. Kent Sifford


chiropractor sifford

Kent was practicing chiropractic in Goshen, IN, and treating numerous patients. He was an industrial consultant going into industries and teaching every movement and ergonomic consideration to prevent injury.

Teaching nutrition and lifestyle changes to improve health and prevent illness. He practiced all of these health principals personally.

Then suddenly over a few days a slight ache in his neck became sharp and severe pain. Added to this a headache that was so intense he could barely work and could not sleep.

Kent sought out one of the top neck and spine researchers in the country and received a MRI. He was told that he had two leaking discs at the base of his neck.

This is a condition worse in severity than a disc bulge.

He was in more pain than almost all the patients coming in to his clinic. Going to several chiropractors and then spine experts they said he needed surgery. Unwilling to do that, he started researching even the smallest variable that would heal a disc;

nutrition, detoxification, mental emotional (spiritual), rehab/exercise and Cox flexion distraction. Learning every nuance of anything concerning the disc. Due to this experience, Kent became passionate to help anyone in this situation.

It takes time, patience and education to escape this problem.  Having no issues now, Kent can do any activity he wants; kayaking, biking, snowboarding, hiking and many more activities Rapid City and the Black Hills have to offer. Kent can help people out of this problem and even better, help someone know all variables to prevent it.
