Hello Falcon Family.
Our first guest for the Alumni edition of “Getting to know your Falcons” is our favorite Chiropractor, Dr. Kyle Wagner. Kyle moved back to his hometown of Kent, and started his career at Pollard Chiropractic, in 2018 after receiving his Doctor of Chiropractic from the University of Western States. His Bachelor’s in Kinesiology is from Western Washington University.
“I knew at the age of 16 that chiropractic was the career path I wanted to take. After suffering from a sports injury I started seeing Dr. Pollard. I was amazed at how much better I felt and knew that this was what I was going to do. After putting in 8 years of schooling with a lot of hard work, I am now a chiropractor and working with Dr. Pollard who inspired me so many years ago.”
Kyle is a graduate of the Kentlake Class of 2009 and his time on the football field was spent as Safety and Wide Receiver. He worked hard in the classroom and enjoyed seeing the concepts from science class come to life through the experiments!
It is no secret, if you follow Kyle on social media (facebook.com/kylewagnerDC) you will find out that he likes to test our song knowledge with ‘What’s that song Wednesday?’ where Kyle plays a short guitar solo for us. Of course, being a native to the upper left Kyle also enjoys the outdoors, camping and hiking in his free time.
We want to thank Kyle for taking time to think about Kentlake – volunteering his time to support the football players and program really means a lot to this Falcon Family. Kyle helps coordinate an Athletic Physical Clinic for student athletes at the start of the season (the school district requires all athletes to have a current physical on file before they are allowed to participate). He recently received an additional certification, the Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician certification, to help our Kentlake student athletes perform their best. During the football season Kyle welcomes all players to stop by the office. He wants to educate the players on the importance of good chiropractic health, just as Dr. Pollard had done for him.
