Meet Dr. Alyssa Kurth

Dr. Alyssa Kurth was born and raised in Green Bay, WI. She attended both St. Norbert College in De Pere, WI and Lancaster University in the U.K. to obtain her Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. She was involved in several research studies and published during her time there, graduating with Summa cum Laude honors.

A Changed Path

Dr. Alyssa West

“Dr. Alyssa knew she wanted to be a chiropractor as soon as she met hers!”

She met her chiropractor at a pivotal moment in her life, a time when she was planning on attending medical school but quickly learned that today’s mainstream “modern medicine’ was not what she had expected. Despite “wellness'” claims, Dr. Alyssa still saw too heavy a reliance on drugs and surgery, and too little faith placed in the human body. After learning that chiropractic centers itself around the nervous system (the master control switch of the human body) and that chiropractors believe and trust in the body’s innate healing powers, she made a proud decision to attend Chiropractic school.

Dr. Alyssa thus enrolled at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, where she graduated as her class Valedictorian. While attending Palmer, Dr. Alyssa became heavily involved in learning and teaching the Gonstead technique through the Troxell Intern Program run by Dr. Josh Lawlor. She also interned under Dr. Rick Burns, a famous Gonstead chiropractor and Illinois’ Chiropractor of the year several years running.

After attending Palmer, Dr. Alyssa worked at LaBounty Family Chiropractic in Ankeny, IA. Dr. Michael LaBounty served to be an immeasurable mentor to Dr. Alyssa, as he is one of the most well-known and successful pediatric Gonstead chiropractors.
