Dr. Kent Ferguson, D.C.

When there is a game or sporting event on, he has to watch.  It is impressive to see someone master a shot, stroke, dive etc. It takes a great deal of skill and dedication to do this. Athletic competition is what drew Dr. Ferguson to health care in the first place. Dr. Ferguson particularly likes to play basketball. During one of his high school basketball seasons he began to experience ankle and foot pain. His injury prevented him from participating with his team’s games and practices.  It kept him from doing something he loved to do.  This experience gave Dr. Ferguson a pretty good idea of what he wanted to do in life. He wanted to help people continue to do the activities or sports which they loved for as long as they wanted. For some this means participating in team sports or individual sports. For other this means gardening or enjoying their children and grandchildren. Dr. Ferguson saw that a healthy and properly functioning body is the only way to achieve this goal. Knowing this Dr. Ferguson focused his education to gain the knowledge necessary to help him help others. He holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Manitoba and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic. In order for any person to be healthy they must control their physical, chemical and emotional stresses. This means maintaining posture, reducing repetitive stress, paying attention to what they eat, supplementing appropriately and finding a way to manage responsibilities. Dr. Ferguson’s practice is wellness oriented, helping his patients prevent injury by maintaining their health through sound chiropractic principles.
