Kevin Krautsack’s Story
Dr. Krautsack is a childhood cancer survivor passionate about teaching others how the body heals, how to eat right and exercise properly, and ultimately how to thrive in an increasingly toxic world. Through his sickness and fight back to health he has gained a wealth of information regarding nutrition, the human body, and ultimately what it takes to get well. He loves to share this knowledge with the world. He obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from life University and B.S. of Health Science and Exercise Physiology from Kennesaw State University.
Dr. Kevin’s Story
At the age of 15 years old, Kevin was diagnosed with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. The cancer, which manifested itself in his hip was misdiagnosed repeatedly as a “sports injury”. This was not surprising to him and his family, Kevin was a 3 sport athlete for his high school and sports injuries happen all the time. The issue with this was that well past the normal time a pulled muscle should have healed, Kevin’s symptoms were getting worse, not better. It was a chiropractor who discovered the mass in his hip which ultimately lead to his cancer diagnosis.
After chemo and radiation therapy, Kevin was free of cancer, yet his health issues had just begun.
Kevin had survived cancer, but his health was in even more disarray then pre-diagnosis. His body was free of cancer, however, the treatment drained the life out of him. He went back to his Doctor who prescribed pills to address the symptoms he had. But then the side effects of these medications presented new symptoms which presented new health issues. And thus began Kevin’s ride on the medical merry-go round till once again, his quest for answers led him to a chiropractor. Kevin wasn’t given pills to manage symptoms, instead he was given knowledge about the basis for living healthy. A simple yet powerful philosophy which changed the trajectory of Kevin’s life, giving him a purpose………
“To address the symptoms, one must treat the cause of health issues”
A simple, yet nearly impossible endeavour without the education necessary to sift through a sea of misleading marketing, fad diets, popular belief and above all, a health care system governed by corporations driven by financial gain. Kevin realized without his childhood experience, he might not have ever realized just how difficult uninformed we as a society are. His purpose, the logical next step…..
“To provide education to anyone who wishes to reclaim their health free from unnecessary medications, foods and supplements containing toxic and harmful ingredients, and simple, practical health care recommendations which promote long term health and vitality.”
Kevin’s pursuit of knowledge about health and healing took him to Kennesaw State University where he earned a B.S in Health Science. Upon graduation in the Summer of 2011, he enrolled in Chiropractic School in Marietta, Georgia. There he received his D.C from Life University. Dr. Kevin saw patients across much of the south east, obtaining licenses to practice in Georgia and Florida before moving to Oregon in 2017.
Here, he opened his first clinic, Emerald City Family Chiropractic with his wife Diane who was pregnant with his son Kaden. Long days and short nights were the norm for Kevin and Diane as they hosted community events, shopping tours and lunch and learns. Dr. Kevin truly believes in exceptional customer service. His investment in each of his patience is unparalleled. Today, his practice is thriving, helping people free themselves from pain and poor health from Salem to Cottage Grove and all the way to the coast. His approach to individual health is comprehensive, involving nutrition and physical rehabilitation with chiropractic at its core. His patients aren’t simply adjusted, they are empowered to reclaim their own health with practical education and chiropractic care, allowing for long term and sustainable health and well being.
I believe in a functional approach to healthcare. An approach that focuses on getting to the cause of health concerns rather than just treating symptoms. A system that focus on building health and improving function rather than treating disease itself.
