Dr. Seth Oquist

Dr. Seth Oquist was born and raised in La Junta Colorado. High school baseball introduced Dr. Oquist to chiropractic after an on-the-field injury to his back and leg. He went to his primary care physician to help with his injury, but traditional medicine just wasn’t helping and he was not getting better.

Young Oquist just wanted to return to the mound, and in order to play, he needed results. So, he went to a chiropractor who took time to explain his injury and developed a treatment plan that had Oquist playing again in a few short weeks. From that experience, Dr. Oquist knew he wanted to seek a career in chiropractic. Upon graduating from La Junta High School he attended Otero Junior College on a baseball scholarship and obtained a Bachelors of Anatomy, a Bachelors of Health and Wellness and his Doctorate from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas.

Dr. Oquist is an avid outdoors-man and enjoys sports of any kind. He especially enjoys golfing and hunting with his father and two brothers. Dr. Oquist and his wife Melissa feel blessed to be a part of the Canon City community. They are very proud to raise their daughter Ava and their baby on the way in a community that is filled with heartfelt people.

Dr. Oquist’s mission is to improve quality of life by delivering compassion and exceptional chiropractic care to facilitate a healthy lifestyle. He takes a “whole body” approach to treating patients, which is looking for the underlying cause of discomfort and pain as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Under the care of Dr. Oquist patients reported higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
