Dr. Kyle Longo is caring, compassionate, and highly experienced.
Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Dr. Longo left home and attended undergraduate studies at Western Kentucky University. Dr. Longo later returned to St. Louis and enrolled at Logan College of Chiropractic. The results of Dr. Longo’s studies earned him a Bachelor of Arts in Human Biology and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. Since graduating from Logan College of Chiropractic Dr. Longo has obtained the following statuses and certifications: Trauma Team, Interdisciplinary Hospital care, and Primary Spine Care provider. These qualifications come through both chiropractic and medical academia, as recognized by Univ. of Buffalo School of Medicine.
Dr. Longo opened his first practice in Clarksville, Tennessee. The practice integrated Chiropractic, Nutrition, Rehab, and Interventional Pain Management. It was the experience of owning and operating a practice that employed Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Medical Doctors and Nurse Practitioners that enabled Dr. Longo to open a second multi-specialty healthcare clinic in Illinois while simultaneously operating his original practice in Tennessee.
Desiring to settle down and start a family with his beautiful wife, Sarah, Dr. Longo sold both of his practices to a nationwide medical group and moved back to St. Louis to open Empower Health.
Dr. Longo has dedicated his practice to helping his patients heal from chronic and acute conditions. His goals for his patients are to help them avoid surgery, reduce or eliminate medications, and to live the fullest and most healthy life possible. To help his patients achieve these goals, Dr. Longo has spent countless hours studying spinal biomechanics and trauma related spinal injury. This quest for knowledge allows Dr. Longo to stay ahead of the pack and to get results when other options have failed.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO – DR. LONGO’S PERSONAL STORY
I grew up playing sports, running around outside, and staying extremely active. That type of lifestyle continued into my college career as a soccer player at Western Kentucky University. Having been an athlete my entire life, I sought a career that would enable me to continue to work in sports and around athletes. Knowing that all professional sports teams and all major universities have chiropractors on staff to keep their athletes performing at their best, I chose to become a chiropractor. However, it was only about a year into my chiropractic education at Logan when I realized that I could make a MUCH larger impact on my community by going into traditional family practice. Sure, it would be cool to help an athlete run a little bit faster or jump a little bit higher. But in the grand scheme of things, does that really make as big of a difference as helping a single mother be able to get back to work to provide for her children? And, in the current state of affairs, WAY too many families are struggling with opiate addiction. Chiropractic is the premier solution to helping many people avoid the need for those dangerous drugs. So, I am proud to be a chiropractor that not only helps athletes, but also helps families to be healthy and pain free naturally.
