Dr. Kirby is a native of Hickory, North Carolina. He is a 2013 graduate of Lenoir-Rhyne University where he studied Biology and minored in Chemistry and Psychology. Dr. Kirby received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Boiling Springs, South Carolina, where he completed additional training in the field of pediatrics and special techniques for adjusting women during pregnancy, known as the Webster Technique. While at Sherman College, Dr. Kirby was named to the Academy of Chiropractic Excellence (ACE) program which was an elite group of interns that were able to assist students in chiropractic technique.
The two types of adjusting that Dr. Kirby uses are manual adjusting and instrument adjusting. Manual adjusting is performed using a variety of techniques including; Diversified, Gonstead, Thompson Technique, & Webster Technique. A low force instrument technique is also used in the office. Dr. Kirby will use the Activator technique at the patients request. Although instrument adjusting is not as deep as a manual adjustment, it is delivered at a much greater speed and thus provides many of the same benefits as the manual adjustment.
He and his wife, JoLeigh, currently reside in the Wilmington area with their two dogs Maggie and Andi. In his spare time, Dr. Kirby enjoys relaxing at the beach and working towards his pilots license.
