Dr. Ken Kilgore began his pre-chiropractic education in South Florida where he studied the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses. After completing his study there, he attended Chiropractic College, completing courses including: biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care. He graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri.
“My philosophy is simple,” states Dr. Ken. “We all have a brain and spinal cord that controls everything in our body. The brain communicates via the nerves. The nerves exit the spine from spaces between each spinal bone. Even the slightest spinal misalignment can interfere with the control and regulation of your body and your capacity to be healthy. My job is to find those areas and reduce their impact on your health.”
Chiropractic is the foundation of nervous system function from a structural perspective. However, there can be limitations on our body’s ability to heal and express health. One of these limitations is nutrition. Dr. Ken has explored multiple supplements and a variety of companies but one recurring thought kept coming up “How do you know when and why to take a supplement?”. This quest for an answer was cumbersome and filled with resistance; however Dr. Ken pressed on and was rewarded for his efforts. The reward was finding a high tech piece of equipment that could provide the answers he was looking for and a huge list of additional solutions even dealing with homeopathy.
Dr. Ken found a technology being used that could evaluate many different aspects of a person’s health in a non-invasive manner, this relief and solution to the pressing question “When & Why” was in front of him. Now he has brought this technology into his Woodstock practice. Dr. Ken states I am amazed at what is possible these days with technology. It is refreshing to know that there are non-invasive alternatives to complex issues like allergies, nutrition, stress, hormonal imbalances and much more.
Dr. Ken is married to Cari and they have three beautiful children, Kenady, Weston and Tucker. They relocated to Cherokee county from Central Florida, where Dr. Ken was practicing until April 2006. January of 2010 Real Health Solutions joined Ribley Chiropractic to better serve the Woodstock area. Almost every Sunday you’ll find them at Woodstock City Church. Family time is important to Dr. Ken. That’s why when He’s not in the office you can find them playing with their Boxer, on a walk, canoeing, mountain biking or just hanging out. Dr. Ken has enjoyed opportunities to coach his daughter in softball, track, and swimming, and his sons in soccer, baseball, and football. He looks forward to growing his involvement in the community.
“Giving back from the abundance God has blessed me with is exciting,” beams Dr. Ken. “I look forward to meeting you and your family and learning how we may be of service to you. Give our office a call today and let’s arrange a time to explore your options.”
