Meet the Disc Doctor

Dr. Kent in front of Mount Rushmore

About Kent Sifford, D.C.

Dr. Kent Sifford (Doc to his patients and friends) is no ordinary chiropractor. From his clinic nestled in Spearfish, South Dakota, Kent has earned a reputation as the “Disc Doctor” — a testament to his unparalleled expertise and knack for helping patients with disc injuries deemed ‘impossible’ by others rise to new heights of health and performance! Nationally sought after, his patients travel far and wide to be treated at his clinic, because they know that he will succeed where others have failed. With over three decades in the field, he has worked with thousands of patients, helping them to heal fully and get their life, health and dreams back. 

His mastery extends far beyond just treatment. Kent dives deep, and with credentials backed by continuous learning from world-renowned experts like Dr. Cox, it’s clear why even other professionals seek his guidance when faced with challenging disc issues. He remains on the cutting edge of chiropractic techniques, dedicating countless hours weekly to research and continued education. This commitment to excellence has earned him trust from fellow chiropractors, who often refer their own family members to him.

At the heart of it, Kent is an educator, a healer, and a relentless advocate for his patients. Constantly updating his knowledge, his commitment is evident in every consultation, every treatment, and every success story. A champion for informed care, Dr. Sifford is passionate about educating his patients, often noting, “Education is the cheapest form of healthcare.” His insights on disc injuries, critical timelines for healing, and the importance of nutrition have reached wide audiences, solidifying his position as a thought leader in his field.

Owner of Vitality Chiropractic and certified in lifestyle training & integrative medicine, Doc’s approach stands out. Instead of short-term fixes, his treatments offer lasting relief. And his dedication to the craft isn’t just professional; it’s personal. He understands the journey from debilitating pain to the joy of robust health firsthand, having battled and overcome a severe disc injury himself (with no surgery needed!). An avid outdoorsman, he makes the most of his renewed health by hiking, snowboarding, sailing, and generally enjoying an active life more now at age 62 than he did when he was younger. His experience reminds him daily that healing is about more than just returning to the bare minimum of function – but rather about restoring you to full health plus performance!

In an age of impersonal care, Dr. Sifford stands out. He’s there for his patients, from one-on-one phone chats to thorough treatments. His keen eye can identify a disc injury with uncanny precision, and his commitment to patient safety ensures that any treatment given is always in the patient’s best interest. Above all, Doc’s dedication to his craft, and genuine compassion make him not just a chiropractor, but a trusted health ally in a league of his own.

So, if you’re looking to transform your health, particularly if you’re battling a disc injury, Dr. Sifford isn’t just an option; he’s the best call you’ll make. And while you’re there, inquire about the Disc Doctor’s innovative 4-step process. Word on the street is it’s a complete game-changer in chiropractic care.
