Dr. Kirk Evans
Most chiropractors choose chiropractic as their career usually as a result of a life changing experience, like a sports injury or miraculous recovery from a health condition. Dr. Kirk (as he likes to be called) received his first chiropractic adjustment from his uncle at the age of four and never had to visit a doctor of medicine his whole childhood. Growing up with chiropractic and living the chiropractic lifestyle, he learned to appreciate the body’s ability to heal naturally without the use of drugs or surgery. When deciding his future career path in high school he knew that he wanted to help people. For him, becoming a chiropractor was the natural choice. He completed his undergraduate studies at James Madison University and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in 1996.
Dr. Evans’ philosophy, that health and healing starts from within, has been at the heart of his practice for 21+ years. He has found that a direct, hands-on approach with consistent awareness and education yields the best results for his patients. He is currently working on certification in Functional Medicine and has experience as a Functional Medicine educator.
As a father of three children and a professional, he knows first hand the demands of today’s lifestyle. From the sick and injured to those who want to stay well, Dr. Evans enjoys getting to know each of his patients and is able to tailor his techniques to their specific needs. When he is not providing chiropractic care, you will most likely find him spending time with his family, enjoying the outdoors and participating as a re-enactor for the Revolutionary and Civil War periods.

What to Expect From Your Visit
Prior to your consultation with the doctor, you will be asked to complete some brief paperwork that will give the doctor a synopsis of your health history. This assists the doctor in more accurately making his diagnosis.
At Delaware Integrative Healthcare, we offer a free consultation whereby the doctor will personally review your case to determine if you are a good candidate for care in our office. If he determines, based on the patient history and clinical experience, that you are a good candidate for care, he will then perform a thorough exam of the spine and extremities. If we determines that you are not a good candidate for care, we will then refer you to an appropriate specialist.
