Dr. Troy Hayes

Dr. Troy grew up in the small town of Cambridge in western Nebraska. After growing up receiving chiropractic care, he knew from age 16 that he was going to pursue Chiropractic as his profession to help people the way he always saw the benefits. He graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with an exercise science degree where he gained a deeper understanding of how the human body works. He then went on to pursue his passion at Cleveland University – Kansas City to receive his Doctorate in Chiropractic. There, he explored many different routes of Chiropractic until he learned about the body’s ability and potential to heal itself, bringing him to where he is today. While attending Cleveland, he also trained in the Webster Technique, which is an advanced certification that instructs doctors how to specifically care for prenatal and postpartum mothers. In his free time, you can find Dr. Troy on the golf course, hunting, grilling on his Blackstone, spending time with his family or even refereeing high school basketball!

Dr. Ashley Hayes

Dr. Ashley grew up in Yankton, South Dakota. She always wanted to serve in the healthcare field, continually being pulled towards a natural way of health and healing. The seed of Chiropractic was planted in Ashley’s life while swimming in high school and later college at the University of Nebraska at Omaha when she suffered from sciatica pain down both her legs, which is why she is so passionate about her career. Ashley saw chiropractic as her way to achieve this goal of helping people naturally and allowing them to live up to their God given potential, so she went on to receive her doctorate in chiropractic from Cleveland University-Kansas City, where she and Troy later met. Dr. Ashley has taken specialty courses outside of the curriculum help her care for pregnant and post-partum moms, infants, and children. In her free time Dr. Ashley enjoys traveling to new places, whipping up new recipes in the kitchen and watching cooking shows, learning to play golf with Troy, and spending time with her family, friends, and dog!

He is super friendly and loves everyone, so feel free to cuddle him any time!

Outside of the office, he loves to go on runs, go hunting with Dr. Troy and play with his sisters, Emma and Madelynn.
