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?”
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.
Dr. Teena Rowe became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2022 when she began serving residents in the Asheville area, where she continues doing the work she finds so rewarding.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is being able to give people a better quality of life,” she says. I love putting a smile on people’s faces. I also love promoting health in a holistic way because it can eliminate the amount of toxins we put in our body.”
Dr. Teena, as her patients know her, grew up in Elkhorn City, Ky.,, but began working in Asheville after getting her doctorate from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Boiling Springs, S.C. She previously earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology at University of Pikeville in Kentucky.
“My first-ever adjustment was when I started chiropractic school,” she says. “Chiropractic was just something that felt right to me once I started studying it. Through chiropractic, I have helped two-day-old babies with colic, ear infections, constipation, et cetera. I have helped mothers get their baby to turn in the womb to avoid being breeched. I have helped people experiencing urinary incontinence. The options are endless with chiropractic. Each and every day, we get to help people with their quality of life no matter the situation.”
When she’s not working, Dr. Teena spends time with her Chihuahuas, Theodore and Eleanor. She also likes being outside and wants to travel the world.
In Case You Didn’t Know
If she could bring together any four people from history for her ideal dinner party, she would include Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon. “I’m a Queen fan,” she says.
Her most amazing experience is skydiving. “As crazy as it sounds, it gave me a completely different outlook on life -- in a good way,” she says.
As a member of the Asheville community, Dr. Teena naturally gravitates toward exploring the area’s various craft beers. “When in Rome,” she says.
Dr. Kirsten West joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2021 when she became part of the team at the South Asheville clinic, where she does the rewarding work of helping people as their local healthcare provider.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is helping people improve their quality of life naturally,” she says. “It’s gratifying to see people get hope that they can feel better.” Raised in the foothills around Wilkesboro, Dr. West grew up around “people who had no idea natural healthcare options were available.”
She earned her doctorate from Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Mo., after getting a bachelor of science degree at North Carolina State. She worked previously in Winston-Salem, and Greenville, S.C.
In her spare time, Dr. West enjoys hiking, kayaking, and visiting breweries, and spending time with her Labrador mix, Chance..
She knew chiropractic was her calling when, as an athlete, chiropractors helped her heal from multiple injuries. It was further validated as a professional when she helped patients with ear infections simply by using the chiropractic adjustment. “Kids not having to get tubes in their ears is an awesome feeling,” she says.
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. West says her perfect dinner party would include singer Prince, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, and entertainers Betty White and Ellen DeGeneres.
She is a big fan of author Brene Brown: “She’s a great motivational writer and speaker.”
The one thing that Dr. West always keeps stocked in her refrigerator is hot sauce. “Breakfast,” she says, “is so much better with it.”
April Berg, DC was born in Plantation, Florida. Dr. April was raised and grew up in Johnson City in Northeastern Tennessee. Dr. April attended East Tennessee State University where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Sociology with a minor in Anthropology and concentrations in Behavioral Studies and Sciences in 2007. Dr. April moved to Chesterfield, right outside of St. Louis, MO in 2009 to attend Logan College of Chiropractic. Dr. April obtained a second bachelor’s degree in Life Sciences in 2012 and her Doctor of Chiropractic in 2013.
Dr. April felt the call of the mountains and returned to Johnson City, TN. Dr. April took over the same practice that she herself had started off as a patient in, and she has been running Family Chiropractic Clinic since 2014.
Dr. April’s favorite thing about chiropractic is showing patients how she can have an effect on the nervous system without the use of drugs or medication. Dr. April enjoys spending her free time outdoors hunting with her husband and hiking with her Australian cattle dog, Maisy.
Dr. April always has fresh blueberries in her fridge, not only for the antioxidant effects but also to help regulate her blood sugar!! As an avid animal lover, one of the coolest thing she has done is work at a rescue science center that rehabilitated wild birds where she got to pet and hold owls.
