Dr. Stan Setzer received his Bachelors in Business from the University of North Carolina Asheville in 2010. He then chose Sherman College to complete his Doctoral Studies and officially became a Chiropractor in 2016. It is his mission to bring Chiropractic to as many people as possible and demonstrate the power of the human body to heal itself when the nervous system is clear of interference.
Originally from Newton, NC he moved to Asheville to attend undergraduate college and quickly fell in love with the mountains and the city. Not too long after he fell in love again, this time with his now wife Melissa. Together they have four children Michael, Mathew, Melody and Grayson. Dr. Stan found such a wonderful home in Asheville that after graduating from Sherman College he chose to start practice there and joined the team of doctors at The Joint Chiropractic in October of 2016.
Dr. Stan has a great love for cinema and when asked which four notable people would make up a dinner party Dr. Stan replied with Joss Whedon, Stephen King, George Lucas and Quentin Tarantino.
In addition to his traditional education Dr. Stan has been training in Heishin Ryu Karate for over 15 years and has earned the rank of 3rd Dan (3rd degree black belt), as well as a 1st Dan (1st degree black belt) in Toyama Ryu Iaido, a style of Japanese Sword. He has found great satisfaction over the years teaching students of all ages how to face their fears and build confidence in their ability to protect themselves.
He believes that life should be a process of constant improvement and that everyday a person should work to better some aspect of themselves, no matter how small the improvement.
Through striving to better ourselves we should also work to better the communities in which we live and offer a helping hand where needed. He further continues to educate those who come to him for chiropractic care in ways to improve the function of their bodies and how to protect themselves from disease. It is this aspect of constant improvement that Dr. Stan finds to be the greatest benefit of chiropractic care as every adjustments helps to improve the health of every individual.
Dr. Christina Wocial was born in New York City and raised in Rockland County (45 minutes north of NYC). She attended Rockland Community College and graduated with an Associates degree in Math and Science in 2010. Afterwards, she attended Life University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic in 2014 and 2015 respectively. After graduation she worked in New York City for over a year, practicing Chiropractic Biophysics and the Gonstead Technique. In December of 2016, Dr. Christina joined The Joint Chiropractic Team, and has been loving working here ever since. For Dr. Christina, the very best thing about being a Chiropractor is watching patients smile when their pain has improved or is gone.
Her love for the mountains brought her and her husband, Matthew to Western North Carolina. They are both avid outdoor enthusiasts, love hiking, kayaking, four wheeling, target shooting, and working on their farm. They have three dogs: Akira, Sasha, and Star; two goats: Groot and Rain; a cat: Watermelon; and multiple chickens, ducks, and fish.
The one thing Dr. Christina must have in her fridge is milk or cream for coffee. She loves to drink coffee in the AM but does not like it back.
Four notable people, living or dead, that would comprise a dinner party with Dr. Christina would be: Jesus Christ, because if there were any idols she had, he would be it. Dr. Gonstead, because he was one of her role models throughout chiropractic school. And Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla because she has a lot of questions for them.
One of the coolest things Dr. Christina has done is fly an airplane. To her, this is cool because there really is nothing else like it in the world.
I grew up mainly in Chicago, except for 5 years between ages 4 and 9, I lived in Peru when my father worked for our church mission. I got my Bachelor's with a minor in Chemistry at Northern Arizona University. I joined The Joint in August 2016. What I love about Chiropractic is the incredible help you can give a patient. With no I'll side effects. I especially love adjusting children (no preconceived notions).
In my spare time I love being with my family. My wife's name is Carrie. We have 4 wonderful kids and 3 great dogs (a great Pyrenees, a toy poodle and a lab mix).
Dr. Dwight Whynot, originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada) completed his undergraduate in Physical Education at Dalhousie University and completed his graduate education in 1999 from Logan College. In addition, he has been a nurse for 5 years. Dr. Whynot is a sports enthusiast, and in his free time loves to golf, scuba dive, hike, and watch his children compete in volleyball and soccer.
Dr. Nick Hightower is a native of Aiken, SC and completed his BA is psychology at The Citadel Military College of South Carolina in 1993 in Charleston, SC. His firsthand experience with chiropractic made such a positive impact on his quality of life that he decided to pursue a career in chiropractic. In 2009 he received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University’s College of Chiropractic in Marietta, GA. Shortly after graduating he started practicing in Bellingham, WA and then relocated back to the Athens, GA where he had his first experience with chiropractic. One too many hot Georgia summers (and the news that he was an uncle-to-be) urged Dr. Hightower to move closer to family in Asheville, NC. Since October 2014 Dr. Hightower has been serving the Asheville community at The Joint Chiropractic Place.
When he isn’t in the office helping patients, Dr. Hightower enjoys camping, martial arts, playing music and paintball.
A few things about Dr. Hightower:
-What’s the one thing in your fridge that you must have, and why? Bacon because it is bacon.
-What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever done, and why was it so cool? Heading out to Washington state for my first job in chiropractic because it was such a giant leap out of my comfort zone.
