PRESCOTT - Brent Seifert fell from a pine tree when he was 7 or 8 years old.

That fateful experience led to his career choice of chiropractor, and Seifert is trying to get established in his new hometown of Prescott.

Seifert, a native of Florence, Ore., opened his practice in suite 104 of the Creekside Center at 337 N. Rush St. after obtaining his state license in September.

He recalled falling about five feet to the ground during his youth. "I landed on my back," Seifert said. "When I fell, it knocked me out. I woke up and was in pain."

Seifert said the accident caused him to slump forward, but the pain disappeared as his back "popped" after he received a bear hug during his teens. "I could breathe, and I could stand up straight," Seifert said. "It inspired me. Then, I went around popping everybody's backs. One day somebody said, 'If you like doing this, you ought to become a chiropractor.'"

Seifert earned a bachelor's degree in public health and minor in psychology at Oregon State University, and later enrolled at the Western States Chiropractic College in Portland.

Seifert started his chiropractic career in Oregon in 1998. He moved to Phoenix in November 2010 with the intent of setting up an online health and wellness program.

After a stint in a career change as a recruiter for engineers in Polson, Mont., Seifert moved this past July to Prescott, seeking a milder climate with four seasons.

Seifert said he does not have a niche as a chiropractor, and takes a "diversified" approach. He treats patients with a variety of conditions, including auto accident and sports injuries, herniated discs, arthritis, headaches and neck pains.

New patients undergo a "full, comprehensive consultation, a detailed exam and complete treatment," Seifert said. Treatment starts with the patient lying on a heated table.

"Then, I use massage oil and give them a brief massage while I am detecting muscle tightness and trigger points," Seifert said. "And once I get them all limbered up, the heat relaxes the nervous system and the muscles, and then the adjustments are very gentle. I don't need to put much force into the adjustments."

Seifert said the frequency of visits depends on what his patients seek. He added most patients relate to pain relief, which requires three to six visits.

To build up his practice, Seifert said he is working "basically seven days a week all hours." He accepts most insurance plans, including from health maintenance organizations and for workers' compensation.

Seifert said he wants to become well-known in the community, and eventually move into a larger office.
