W. Kyle Padilla, DC

Dr. Padilla is a native Oregonian dedicated to helping people reach their God-given potential for life and wellbeing. His interest in the medical field was first discovered while volunteering on the local fire department after high school and he went on to become certified as an emergency medical technician. While studying to become an EMT, he was continually awed by the incredible beauty and design of the human body.

In college, he worked part-time on an ambulance for Dallas Fire and EMS and began pursuing a career in emergency medicine. When his father was tragically and unexpectedly diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2017, he gave up his spot in the upcoming paramedic program in order to be closer to family. In the difficult months that followed, a sense of calling towards natural, preventative healthcare began to solidify and he made the decision to become a chiropractor.

While in chiropractic school, Dr. Padilla was introduced to the positive impact that gentle, specific adjustments can have on pregnancy and infants. It was such a profound paradigm shift that he went on to choose a pediatric office for his clinical internship. This experience, along with his background, have given him a genuine desire to care for families, expectant mothers, the first responder community, and those struggling with chronic illness. Through holistic chiropractic care, individualized nutrition, and lifestyle education, Dr. Padilla is passionate about finding the root cause of his patients’ health challenges and helping restore their quality of life.
