Dr. Dakota Hegi grew up in Derby, Kansas. Being active and playing sports up until after his second year of college, he decided he wanted to pursue a career that would allow him to stay in the sports medicine field. After an injury at his regular job he discovered chiropractic being treated by a friend that convinced him to pursue the new career, he knew that this natural form of healing was what he would do especially after having been a patient and avoiding surgery in his Low Back.
After getting a degree at Kansas State University and Wichita State University, he then finished the prerequisites at the University of Cleveland – Kansas City in Overland Park, Kansas in pursuit of his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. Graduating from Cleveland University – Kansas City College of Chiropractic in 2017, Dr. Hegi has returned to the Good Life and is ready to help his community achieve optimal health!
In his off time, Dr. Hegi enjoys spending time with his family, including his wife Kristin, daughter Emma Louise, and excited about new baby girl in the Fall of 2021. He likes to stay active with exercise, hunting, and weekend golf time with friends! Dr. Hegi also enjoys Wildcat Football Saturdays for Kansas State University as well as being part of the community around him!
Dr. Hegi greatly understands the concept and importance of a close community and the effect it has on everyone. Dr. Hegi wishes to establish that small town community feel in his office, where he is not concerned just for your condition, but you as a person!
Dr. Hegi’s approach to chiropractic care is simple but very effective. Dr. Hegi believes that the body is designed to do ultimately one thing: MOVE. Many people may begin to experience their symptoms from a lack of movement, likely due to inactivity such as sitting for extended periods of time, a previous injury, or a new injury. Also, many symptoms can be produced by a lack of proper movement in the spine and other joints.
Utilizing specific chiropractic techniques, Dr. Hegi believes in treating your new conditions, flare-ups, existing conditions, or keeping you healthy and maintaining! We strive to prevent pain and illness from reoccurring. We strive to help you improve your quality of life, achieve your wellness goals, and heal your body to live your best life possible for you and your family! Your body and health is the biggest investment you'll make so why not enjoy life!
Dr. Hegi is knowledgeable in spinal and extremity chiropractic adjustments, therapy, mobilization, and movement patterns. The purpose of spinal adjustments is to return the spine to a natural state of health and to reduce pain, muscle spasms, and nerve irritation, so you can enjoy your life pain free with more mobility. Dr. Hegi also enjoys being able to co-treat with conditions if necessary with other medical professionals. Dr. Hegi believes that the more information about conditions people are experiencing will ultimately further increase the chances of healing faster. Although allowing the body to be mobile and heal without surgery and or medication is the ultimate goal for every one of Dr. Hegi's patients.
