Dr. Kit Newfield – Chiropractor

Dr. Kit Newfield, Sylvan Lake Chiropractor

Dr. Kit Newfield

I was born and raised in the great city of Red Deer and always had aspirations of becoming a chiropractor. After witnessing the benefits of chiropractic care in my own life as well as those around me, my career choice was confirmed.

My undergraduate requirements were completed at Red Deer College and Athabasca University before moving to Atlanta GA to pursue my doctorate studies.

My wife Megan and I have been married since 2001 and have three children Barrett, Brooks and Kendal.

As a doctor of chiropractic I am committed to optimal health, wellness, and improved vitality through natural “health” care without the use of drugs or surgery.

Dr. Glenn Sedun – Chiropractor

I always knew I wanted to help people and as a young child I suffered with chronic ear infections and low back pain. A chiropractor helped correct these conditions and I was sold. I graduated from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto in 1988.

Dr. Greg Gellert persuaded me to join him in Canada’s greatest province and I have lived here ever since. I have practiced in Sylvan Lake, Provost, Coronation, and I joined the Red Deer Village Team in 2002. I look forward to serving our clientele as they seek natural holistic health and well-being. I’ve practiced part time in Sylvan Lake since April 2013.

My wife Yvonne and I have been married since 1998 and in August 2005 we were blessed with our beautiful baby “Trinity”!

Brad Larson – Registered Muscle Therapist

Welcome to the Village Chiropractic Clinic; thank you for choosing this clinic for its multi disciplinary approach to natural health.

I graduated from the University of Alberta in 1995 with a Bachelor of Physical Education degree. I then finished my massage training in 1997 at the Alberta Institute of Massage with honors. I have continued to work with this group of chiropractors (Sylvan Lake, and Red Deer) ever since! I feel the combined efforts of correcting structure and soft tissue very beneficial in recovery.

In my spare time I am very active in the Massage Therapists Association of Alberta as a member of the Board of Directors and as a past Vice President. My wife Margaret and I also enjoy camping, hiking, slo-pitch, and volleyball!
