Meet Dr. Bruce Swickard

Owner and Founder,  Swickard Chiropractic Clinic Chartered

Chiropractic and its natural approach to health just seemed to make sense to me.

Overland Park Chiropractor, Dr. Bruce Swickard

I received my first chiropractic adjustment when I was just a few hours old from my father, Dr. Ken Swickard, and I have been following this path to natural health care ever since.

My Journey to Becoming a Chiropractor

Growing up my parents always stressed the importance of good nutrition, exercise, and a properly functioning nervous system. I actually decided to become a Chiropractor after I injured my neck playing little league football. I was helped through chiropractic care and decided that I wanted everyone to experience the relief that I felt.

Chiropractic Education

After graduating from Kansas State University, I attended Cleveland Chiropractic College of Kansas City and graduated in 1990. I enjoyed studying diet, nutrition, anatomy, biomechanics, and neurology. I have continued to expand my knowledge of these subjects over the past years, so that I can pass this information on to my patients.

My Practice Philosophy

I have always liked the holistic approach of chiropractic. In practice I enjoy working with patients to find solutions to all of their health care needs. So many times in health care we wrongly focus on just one problem and ignore how it affects the other parts of the body. I like to try and help patients put all of the pieces of the puzzle together to make them a healthier whole. This can sometimes mean using other health care providers to achieve this goal. I feel that chiropractic fills a very unique niche in the health care system and I think the need for chiropractic care will continue to grow as more people experience the benefits.

A Little About Me

My wife, Denise, and I have been married since 1991 and have two boys, Nick and Tommy. Our son Nick is now married and we are happy to have our daughter in law Emily in our family. I grew up in Stilwell and graduated from Blue Valley High School. Although the area has changed a lot since I was a kid, it still has a strong sense of community. That is why we decided to not only raise our family here, but in 1990 I decided to start my practice here as well. When I am not in the office, I can usually be found at a local high school sporting event with my kids or just hanging out with family and friends. I love the outdoors and I particularly enjoy hunting and fishing with my boys.

We all experience a lot of ongoing stress in our daily lives. That is why I receive regular chiropractic care to help me adapt to the many stresses that we all see on a daily basis. I also feel that we are only as healthy as what we eat. I regularly take whole food supplements and follow a specific diet to help my body be able to adapt to the many stressors in our activities of daily living. By doing a few simple things right, you can avoid many of the chronic degenerative diseases so many people are suffering from.
