Chiropractor Kenneth Todd Hicks, D.C.

Chiropractor Johnson City TN Ken HicksDr. Ken Hicks began his career helping others with a psychology degree from Appalachian State University, earned in 1989. As a special education teacher at a psychiatric hospital in Georgia, he taught severely emotionally disturbed teens for several years.

In 1994, Dr. Hicks then had a personal experience with a chiropractor who helped him recover from his own long term health problem. Feeling the impact of chiropractic care first hand, he decided to leave his career as a special education teacher and study chiropractic.

Dr. Hicks graduated from Life University in Marietta, Georgia in 1999 with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. He then opened his first practice in Roswell, GA. Upon selling that practice, he went on to see patients in Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee.

Dr. Hicks uses a variety of chiropractic techniques to meet each patient where they are and works hard to help them achieve the results they are seeking. He brings his nearly two decades of experience to bear in each visit with his patients.

He spends his free time with Jenny, his fiance', and their dog Chico wandering around in the woods and listening to (and sometimes playing) music.
