Dr. Kent Carder is a third generation chiropractor that graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University with a BS in Human Biology as well as a Doctor of Chiropractic. He grew up in a family of chiropractors from Oklahoma dating back to 1908, where both his grandfather and father practiced chiropractic and taught him the benefit of chiropractic. He is the first to admit that he took for granted the benefits it has to offer because he assumed that everyone got the treatments and had the access as he did.

Dr. Carder has a passion for helping others and particularly enjoys that he is able to help people through an evidence based approach with their injuries to help them stay active. When he is not in the clinic you can find him building something in his garage or around the house. He may also be spending time with his wife Laura or their two kids. He also enjoys the outdoors where he can fish or hunt upland game birds with his dogs, as well as recreational flying.

He looks forward to the opportunity to help you recover from your injury as quickly as possible, help you with your nutritional goals, get your DOT or Basic Med Physical and help you develop a plan that best fits your lifestyle for your overall optimum health goals.
