Napa chiropractor cares for more than just achy backs

0 2 years ago

Kyle Young was in middle school the first time he was seen by a chiropractor.

“I was playing no-touch, flag football and was tackled,” said Young, a lifelong resident of Napa. “I wasn’t sleeping well, and my mom took me to a chiropractor. It turned out I had injured three discs in my back.”

He said the chiropractor helped him.

At Napa High, he had good grades and when it was time to think about college, he wasn’t sure where he should go.

“I asked my mother what she thought I should I do. Her suggestion was to become a chiropractor, which didn’t appeal to me at the time. I was just finishing up four years of high school, heading into four more of college, plus an additional four for chiropractic school? No, thanks.”

Drawn towards science, he attended California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science.

“I enjoyed working with animals and the degree gave me the prerequisites for any post-graduate science work I decided to do, such as medicine. In my last year at college, I met a recruiter from a chiropractic college. What he said made sense to me.”
