    Doug Kennedy is a great chiropractor, intelligent, kind, considerate and thorough. He is always there to help me and my family. I highly recommend this man as your practitioner.

    Dr. Kennedy has helped keep me moving and healthy for many years. Beside the fact he is a very personable/funny character - the office is very clean, he is always timely, and listens completely why you are in for the visit. I have used chiropractic care as well as acupuncture for many different reasons, and I would rate him as an expert in all areas! Most recently, my neck was so tight it was causing my eye to twitch. I explained to him exactly what was going on and he fixed it. I am always very happy with his adjustments and will continue to visit his practice when I need to.

    Doug Kennedy is an amazing and compassionate medical practitioner. I met Doug through a friend and he came highly recommended. My earlier visits were necessary due to neck pain I suffered from a head on car accident. The most recent visits, and there have been many during 2010 and 2011, were due to a bad bicycle accident where I separated my shoulder which required two surgical procedures to put me back together again. For almost an entire year, I dealt with excruciating pain which was managed mostly through pain medication. I had been the person who rarely took medication, and I had never experienced such a set back before. I was in physical therapy on and off, mostly on, for almost 8 months. My shoulder, back and neck were all impacted (and severely disturbed) as a result of the surgeries and due to a period of ‘frozen shoulder’. Doug provided the necessary adjustments and acupuncture that helped me to regain strength and mobility in various muscle groups associated with my shoulder. Doug is an amazing chiropractor and he provides services beyond traditionally chiropractic medicine. By the way, I’m so healthy and happy now – I can do a cart wheel again at 51 years of age. And yes, I could do one before I had my accident.

    Our family has depended on Dr. Kennedy for years now. From my daughter who has a brain and neck injury, my son w rib issues,my husband w aches and pains for this and that's, myself w back, neck, knees, and even a Workman's Comp case-I did some damage to my ribs at work. We have been in the Boulder area for years, and have been to many different chiropractors, and stopped looking for the one that was 'just right' when we found Doug. Doug is extremely talented, gives real thought to each and every person, for each and every visit. Doug is a treasure we value beyond words, and can't imagine how our family would be without him.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Entrusting your health care to a provider is an important decision: take time to do your research on the Web, various rating groups, and ask your friends for their recommendations. Then meet with the doctor to ask questions and determine if it is a good match. Don't always look for the lowest price...scrimping here is usually not a good idea.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Many chiropractors will want to set you up on a long-term plan of care; I think that is "over-selling" the product. You should get a home-based stretching and exercise plan to help maintain your spinal health once you are out of pain. If your doctor just keeps adjusting you, and isn't working to move you into more and more activity, you may want to find another doctor.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Every person is unique, like a complex marionette with a million strings holding them together. I love to find ALL the connections that need correction: the tight strings, the loose strings, and the "sprung springs"...and set out on a planned re-tuning of the Marionette (oops...I mean the patient!) That also includes working with stress and their response to stress, exercises, stretching, and mental attitude. I love people.

Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

A. The spondylogenic reflex is going to become the new Normal when it comes to working with the body. European researchers discovered how each spine level has reflex-tightening of a variety of near (and far!) sets of muscles...and that once the reflex is set off, it tends to trigger OTHER spinal distortions, and on and on. Working with Dr Frank Jarrel, an innovative Clinician from Durango, I have been learning how to treat some amazingly "hard to treat" problems...with good success.
