Dr. Dean Kenny
I came to High Point to practice after graduating from National College of Chiropractic in 1979. Looking back, I can honestly say, I was ” Wet behind the Ears.” As I gained experience and proficiency treating musculo-skeletal conditions like neck pain, back pain, disc problems, and headaches; I realized that some patients were taking a lot of medication. I remember counting 15 medicines for a particular patient and that’s when I decided I needed to learn more. After 3 years of postgraduate certification in Internal Medicine on the weekends, I became board certified as a Chiropractic Internist and felt competent enough to recommend natural alternatives to patients for many of the chronic illness and co-morbidity that exist in our ” rat race” society today. With the rising cost of health care , prevention remains the best answer and the best medicine. The purpose of Chiropractic and this office is to remove nerve interference and improve the communication to the brain for better health and the prevention of illness and disease while adding life to the years and years to the lives of the patients we have the privilege to serve.
My father was a Chiropractor in rural Kentucky and took care of all kinds of problems from back pain to sore throats. There weren’t as many doctors to choose from back then like there are these days. That’s how I learned that we have the natural abilities to get well if we are given the right circumstances. With all the known side effects of medications today, doesn’t it make more sense to look for natural alternatives before giving medicine to your family. That’s what more doctors are suggesting now and that’s just what my father did. It’s why Chiropractors say ” Chiropractic 1st, medicine 2nd, and surgery last ! “
