Dr. Kevin Michael Phillips, D.C. has long been fascinated by the many wonders of biology. Ever since he can remember, he has been drawn to the workings of the natural world and the seeming paradox of simplicity versus complexity in the animal world.
As an undergraduate, Kevin studied aquatic biology at the University of California at Santa Barbara. While there, he discovered the critical importance of the interplay between structure and function in living things. Every system in an organism’s body is purposefully designed with function in mind. Be that organism a plant, a fish, a dolphin or a human being, each system within it is designed to maximize function while at the same time optimizing efficiency under gravity.
Chiropractic was an immediate fit with Dr. Kevin’s growing understanding. The direct and powerful interplay between the spine, nerve system and the body as a whole correlated directly with his early studies and opened the door into the larger arena of health care. For Kevin, chiropractic is more than just complementary health care. It is an avenue whereby we can connect to those rhythms which connect us to every living thing on the planet. As we attune to our spines, our bodies become healthier because the nerve system is intimately related with every system in our bodies. It is the master control center, coupling with our hearts, to provide us with synchronous balance and coordinated efficiency.
Taking a larger context, as we ourselves connect and heal, we give others the opportunity to do the same. Healing, like happiness and love, is contagious. We can’t help but spread it to others. When we feel good inside, we radiate those good feelings outward into the world.
