My name is Dr. Kile Kaspar, and my journey into chiropractic care is a personal one. At 15-years-old, I had an interest in diving, and seeing how many flips I could squeeze in before I hit the water. One day, after one-and-a-half flips, I hit my head on the diving board before landing in the water.
I saw myself floating there in the water, helpless. I was paralyzed and unable to swim but somehow I ended up on the side of the pool. A few months went by, and I thought I recovered from the incident. That is until I collapsed after bending my neck at drill team practice.
I underwent a battery of tests to try to determine what was wrong. I had brain scans, neck MRI’s and sleep studies. Doctors wondered if I had a brain tumor. No one could quite figure it out. The doctors prescribed me naproxen, muscle relaxers, and anti-depressants, and told me there was nothing more they could do.
My mother took me to a chiropractor, and after a single adjustment, I remained symptom free for 13 years. In my 20s I began to experience it again. I was scheduled for a surgery to address the issue, and the week before, I discovered light therapy. I healed my body through natural means and never underwent the surgery.
This experience has made me committed to not only promoting the amazing benefits of chiropractic but also educating people about light therapy and other forms of natural healing.
