The Semlow Chiropractic Team

“Health once lost is difficult to regain,” forms the basis of our chiropractic practice philosophy.
Semlow Chiropractic Doctors

The Semlow Chiropractic of Macomb team consists of Dr. Kent Semlow who received his degree in Chiropractic from Palmer Chiropractic College.

We provide care to patients of all ages, from newborns to “seasoned” citizens. Patients have sought care for injuries from sports, work and home. People suffering with symptoms of: headaches, low back pain, neck pain or radiating numbness and tingling can find great results at our offices. We welcome difficult cases.

When you are around chiropractic and see the life-changing effects it has, it truly becomes a way of life.

I was born in Peoria, Ill., the second largest city of Illinois in 1959. I attended Woodrow Wilson Grade School where my mother was a kindergarten teacher, and yes, I had my own mother as my teacher. I then attended Peoria High School where my brother Bob was a teacher; sadly they would not allow him to be my teacher. In 1977 I graduated from Peoria High and attended Ferris State in Big Rapids, Michigan. I then went on to Illinois Central College in East Peoria and Scott Community College in Bettendorf, Iowa; it was then that my pre-chiropractic studies were completed. I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic and in March 1986 I received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

My reasons for becoming a chiropractor are numerous. My father, mother and brother had all suffered from different medical problems and the only treatment that had given them relief was through chiropractic care. My mother had suffered from a muscular wasting disease in her legs where she was instructed to go to the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic. At these clinics she was unfortunately told that she would be restricted to a wheelchair for the rest of her life, this being the ‘best’ they could do for her. She would not accept this, but with chiropractic care she was able to walk up until her death which was 24 years later.

I come from a large family of Chiropractors. I became the fourth family member to accomplish my degree and am now proud to say that we have nine chiropractors in our family. We have offices in Macomb, Troy, Norton Shores, Fremont and Grand Haven. I was married to Sandy for 24 years before her passing in 2008 and we have two sons together, Zach and Evan.

Our chiropractic clinics offer family plans as well as individual care plans for adults and children. Our experience is that most insurance companies offer coverage for Chiropractic Care. Our office staff can answer any questions that you might have about your particular insurance coverage and its benefits. We are happy to offer affordable cash plans for those with no coverage. We want to make your chiropractic care affordable!

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been in the need of Chiropractic care since 1988 due to a rear end whip lash accident. Starting in N.J. to Florida to Michigan, Dr. Kent has been the best at keeping my horrendous cervical spine out of pain and moving! He is the greatest!"

  • "After being injured in an automobile accident I was left with severe back, neck, and head pain. I was sent to one doctor after another and none of them seemed to be able to help me. My physician then sent me to Dr. Kent Semlow. I had never been to a Chiropractor before and was very skeptical and nervous about seeing one. After meeting with Dr. Semlow I felt very comfortable about him treating me. I can truly say that I was hooked after my first session! Dr. Semlow has been able to make me feel better then I thought I could."

  • "First, I would like to thank Dr. Semlow and staff for being so patient, kind, and understanding. But most of all they really care. I have been to several Chiropractors in my life, and have found the best results and well-being here at Semlow. My neck and back can be sore, stiff, and hurt to move. After an adjustment I feel like a new man again. I totally trust Dr. Kent. I also believe in Chiropractic care and would recommend it to any and all."
