Nampa Chiropractor : Dr. Ken Swaim

I just wish I had known then what I know now.

Dr. Swaim, Nampa Chiropractor

After having swam so many miles a day while in high school , I developed a slight bend in my spine that has continued to be a problem 25 years later. It wasn’t until I went to chiropractic school and had an examination that I realized there was a problem. Now that I understand spinal balance and symmetry, my problem could have been corrected years ago. I wish I had known how vitally important a balanced, dynamic spine is to my total health.

I was in my late 20’s when I met a man that changed my life.

He was a chiropractor and was playing national level racquetball in his mid fifties. I had always tried to do healthy things, like eat better foods, drink tons of water, get some rest, run, ride or swim as often as possible, and Dr. Nelson invited me to look at what he did for a living. I did not fancy going back to school for another 5.5 years, but the idea of working with my hands to enhance peoples health and well being was really appealing. So I quit my job, went back to school and opened our practice in 2002. I cannot imagine doing anything else.

Chiropractic Education

I attended Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward California because they have a reputation for producing excellent doctors. I wanted to be a part of an institution that cared deeply about chiropractic principles. Life West is that. Dr. Malik Solsberg, arguably the most well read man in our profession, was very thorough in his approach to teaching the scientific validation that our profession rests on. He was very influential in my staying and finishing school.

Dr. Swaim at Home

My little family is composed of my wife of 27 years, Linda, and my delightful 16 year old daughter Abbey Faye. We love to be together and ski and ice skate in the winter, and ride bikes and water slide in the summer. Having adventures of any size gets us all jazzed up. When it is late and there is no more sun to play under, we like to watch old Andy Griffith TV show episodes, or go to Flying Pie Pizza in Boise.

I get adjusted at least once a week and sometimes twice. Because I spend so much time in the swimming pool in the winter, my neck and right shoulder tend to become tight and he helps keep it in balance. I also like to ski as often as possible. In the summer I ride mountain bikes and play tennis. I enjoy being in motion and chiropractic makes that possible. I can’t imagine a life without motion.
