Dr. Ken Downing

Dr. Ken Downing

Chiropractor

I was born and raised in Aurora, MO where I attended Aurora High School. I then attended the University of Missouri and graduated in 1976. While at Missouri, I was on a full football scholarship where I played safety. I was honored with being a Coach’s All-American. I was drafted by the New Orleans Saints and then traded to the Chicago Bears before going to the Canadian Football League. While in the league, I started for the Ottawa Rough Riders and the British Columbia Lions. I still love for sports and enjoy treating athletes of all skill levels in all sports.

I am a 1986 graduate of Cleveland College of Chiropractic in Kansas City. I practiced in south Kansas City with two partners for six years before having my own practice at 98th and Wornall. I later purchased practices in Pleasant Hill, MO and Westwood, KS. I sold my Missouri practices and have been practicing at the Westwood Chiropractic location since January 2006.

I was the chiropractor for the Kansas City Chiefs for many years and also worked with the Royals. My background, understanding, and experience help me help you reach your health goals.
