AKRON — By the time Kevin Day graduated from Tippecanoe Valley High School in 2002, he had undergone chiropractic procedures that eliminated his asthma and successfully treated shoulder and knee injuries incurred in football. “I was impressed,” he said. “Before that, I was like a lot of other people, convinced chiropractors were people who cracked backs.”
Diploma in hand, he knew he wanted to be a chiropractor. “I knew that was my goal and that I had a great deal of work ahead of me,” he said. That included earning a bachelor’s degree from Manchester College with a biology/chemistry major and graduating from Sherman College of Chiropractic with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree.
Recognized by the International Gonstead Seminar of Chiropractic for outstanding dedication to the advancement of chiropractic, he also has been recognized by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and the Indiana State Board of Chiropractic.
With a busy practice in Warsaw, he graduated from the Fulton County Leadership Academy and earned certifications in athletic injury management, geriatric case management and pediatric management. He was elected president of the Lake City Chapter of Business Networking International in 2013.
He doesn’t consider himself a hero but he says he finds fulfillment in helping the area community while helping others reach their best health. This includes nutrition, infertility, pediatrics, geriatrics and sports-related injuries. His office frequently is headquarters for food donations and Toys for Tots.
Day says he considers marrying his wife, Caroline, to be his greatest achievement.
