Meet The Doctors

Dr. Stanley Setzer, D.C. is a Clinic Director, Chiropractor at North Asheville

Dr. Stan Setzer joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2016 when he became part of the team at the North Asheville clinic, where he does the rewarding work of helping people as their local healthcare provider.

“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is being able to help people with problems that other health practitioners aren’t able to,” he says. “I love building relationships with patients.”

Known to his patients as Dr. Stan, he is a product of Newton. He and his wife have three sons and a daughter, as well as a high-energy Australian shepherd named Marvel. When he’s not enjoying quality time with the family, he likes tending to his YouTube channel.

He earned his doctorate from Sherman College of Chiropractic after having received a bachelor’s degree in business administration from UNC Asheville.

His decision to become a chiropractor had a bit of a philosophical bent. “Like a lot of chiropractors and chiropractic patients, I had a lot of questions about my life and chiropractic seemed to be the answer,” he says.

One of the moments that validated that decision took place with a patient who was in a wheelchair “because she couldn’t walk,” he says. “A month later, she wasn’t even needing a cane to get around.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Stan describes himself as “a movie and Hollywood fanatic,” so if he could bring together any four people for his ideal dinner party, he would sit down with directors Quentin Tarantino, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and actor Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock).

One of his favorite books is IT by Stephen King: “It shows how people, even children, can accomplish great things if they are brave and have faith in each other.”

Around the house, he always makes sure there’s something cold to drink in the refrigerator “because who wants to drink anything at room temperature?”

Dr. Kenneth T. Hicks, D.C. is a Chiropractor at North Asheville

The North Asheville clinic location is proud that Dr. Ken Hicks joined its team in 2022 to provide important healthcare services to the local community.

“I always loved helping others and working at The Joint gives me the opportunity to do this every day,” he says. “I love that the job is physical -- as opposed to a desk job -- because it helps keep me healthy.”

Dr. Hicks worked previously in Roswell, Ga., Blacksburg, Va., Mannington, W.V., and Chattanooga and Johnson City, Tenn. Born in Roswell, he moved to North Carolina while in middle school.

He and his wife have “a sweet and silly black Lab that just seems to love everyone.” His hobbies include hiking and photography.

Dr. Hicks earned his doctorate of chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, Ga., after getting his bachelor’s in psychology at Appalachian State in Boone.

“After suffering from gastrointestinal issues for years with no good answers or solutions from the medical community, I saw a chiropractor and my chronic issue resolved itself in a matter of weeks,” he says. “This piqued my interest in becoming a chiropractor.”

It has led him to some great professional moments, including one early in his career. “I had a patient who could not lay down or she would throw up,” Dr. Hicks says. “I wasn’t sure what to do, so I propped up a table against the wall and had her lean on it so I could adjust her. It worked well and she greatly appreciated it. After a few weeks of adjusting her this way, she was able to lay on a regular table for her adjustments. She credited this to her chiropractic care.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Hicks’ ideal dinner party would include comedians Steve Martin, Ellen DeGeneres, Robin Williams, and Kevin Hart “because laughter lightens our load.”

One of his most amazing adventures involved him and two wheels. “I took an off-road solo motorcycle trip across the U.S. called the TransAmerica trail,” Dr. Hicks says. “It added to my confidence regarding handling difficult situations by myself.” Perhaps that’s why the title of his biography would be called Little Adventures.

He always keeps peanut butter stocked in his refrigerator: “It’s an easy go-to snack I’ve enjoyed since I was a kid.”

A book that has been influential to Dr. Hicks was written by Victor E. Frankl titled Man’s Search for Meaning. “It showed me what we’re all capable of doing,” he says.
