Hey, my name is Dr. Kurt Perkins DC CCWP CFMP. I put a lot of time in and paid a lot of money for all those initials after my name but they don’t really matter unless I can help solve your problem. In fact, there are a lot of professionals with impressive initials after their names yet have no tools to help you get better.
My passion is to get you to create ‘More Health, Less HealthCare.’ What makes my heart sing is helping good people out of bad situations. One of the worst situations someone can face is poor health. One of my favorite quotes is that a person with great health has 1,000 dreams. A person with poor health, only has one.
We live in a time in history where we have unlimited resources to get and stay well. The irony is that we have the worst health outcomes and we pay the most money to get those outcomes. Remember all those other professionals with expensive initials after their names? Our healthcare system, though great at emergencies, has no answer for the 80% of Americans suffering with chronic illness.
The only viable, sustainable solution is to create health. That’s why I created this website and use the phrase ‘More Health, Less HealthCare’ as my guiding light when working with clients. I hope you find valuable insight on this website through the blog, podcast, Facebook, and speaking engagements. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
As for me, I’m married with 3 boys. My personal life is pretty boring. I start most of my days with some devotional readings and journaling, CrossFit, and breakfast with the family. During the day I’m helping people with all sorts of problems, you can take their words for it. When I’m reading or listening to books or podcasts, it’s centered around leadership, personal development, and health topics, though I’m starting to get into biographies.
I’ve called Colorado home for almost 10 years. Originally I’m from upstate NY, in a small town called Glens Falls. For some reason, out-of-towners have a hard time with the ‘s’ and call is Glen Fall. This would be north of I-90 along the eastern border. Because I’m from the state of NY, not the city, you won’t hear the stereo typical accent so many anticipate when they hear I’m from NY. All my extended family has migrated and settled in the Rochester area, where I went to college at Robert Wesleyan College, graduating in 2001 with a BS in biochemistry.
Following undergrad, I headed east about 60 miles to a small town called Seneca Falls. No, not every town in upstate NY ends in falls. There I attended New York Chiropractic College. My first day at NYCC was 9/11/01. I’ll never forget where I was when we were told “classes were cancelled, go back to your dorms.” There was no explanation, just tears from the administrative people. We quickly learned what was happening when we turned on the TV.
I graduated at the end of 2004, headed west for Bakersfield, CA. It was during this transition point that I met the woman that I would eventually marry and have kids. I ended up in Colorado because of her, got married in 2008, and never looked back, at either coast.
Because I have a laid back family, I like to extend that atmosphere to my clinic, Dr. Kurt’s Place. We laugh, share pain, but through it all we help make each other better and move towards creating a lifetime of sustainable health practices. Come be a part of our family, whether it’s online or in office.
