We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Seth Storment and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Seth, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
I believe that the one thing that is most misunderstood about Chiropractic is that it is only used to treat neck pain, back pain, and headaches. Sure, is the lessening of these things a natural side effect of Chiropractic care? Absolutely! It’s so much more than that though. First off I believe I don’t “treat” anything. Our bodies are a self healing, self regulating, self organizing organism that is driven by an Innate Intelligence that we all have. Our Nervous System is how this Innate Intelligence communicates with the body and how we respond to the environment. As a Chiropractor, it’s my duty to locate interference in this communication and remove it via the Chiropractic Adjustment. This allows the natural flow of communication to happen throughout the body to help it heal itself. This is why people will come to the office with back pain and over the course of care they realize they’re sleeping better, their regular heart burn or digestive issues resolve, they have more focus and energy throughout the day. I believe most people misunderstand this aspect of Chiropractic because a lot of chiropractors don’t talk about it this way and only want to talk about pain and how they can “fix” you. It makes sense that it is much more than that because if we know that our Nervous System controls everything in our body and we remove any interferance in that system, there’s no telling how many things can get better. Not just your back pain.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Chiropractic was developed on three pillars; science, philosophy, and art. Yeah through out school we learned all about the science of how the body does what it does. We studied the philosophy on which Chiropractic was built. But the art is where all the excitement comes in. The art is the application of the philosophy and science. It is the expression of the individual Chiropractor and how they choose to serve the person on the table in front of them. The art of Chiropractic is where I found what resonated the best with me and how I chose which path in Chiropractic to take. This is what I love most about what I do. How I express my art in Chiropractic is what sets me apart from others in this amazing field. It is what makes our office different. As I stated before it’s a difference in intention. The intention to “fix” someone or the intention to bring more peace and ease to ones system to allow for more life expression and quality of Life. This is my art. What I’m most excited about is to continue to change how people see their world. When someone tells me “this changed everything”, that’s exciting. To know that my facilitation has helped someone have a new perspective and outlook on their life because they have a clear nervous system, free of any interference. Knowing the ripple effect that has on the community, that excites me.
The road to being a Chiropractor was not the easiest. There are different ways to get there but I chose to do 4 years of undergrad, then took a year to figure things out, then finally went to 4 more years of Chiropractic school. Throughout school there were plenty of ups and downs and what really kept me going was my drive to learn from professionals in the field. I wanted to be the best Chiropractor I could be when I graduated, not 2-3 years after. I went to countless seminars and workshops put on by masters of their expression in the art of Chiropractic. This all led me to the open doors that have got me to the place I am today.
I want the world to know that I am a Chiropractor, one who facilitates more life per moment, through freeing the nervous system of any interference that may hold one back from expressing their full potential.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would first take them to the mountains! Thats what is amazing about this place is that you have the city life and everything you could ever want from that but you also have one of the most amazing mountain ranges out the back door. The sky is the limit to what fun could be had. As far as the city goes, one of my favorite areas is the RiNo Arts district. It has some of the best food and the vibe of that area is on point for anyone in their 20-30’s. I’m also a huge fan of the Highlands for all the same reasons. Food spots like the Happy Camper or Avantii are amazing. As far as hanging out in a park or anywhere to enjoy the sunshine, take your pick! There are so many different parks around the city and they are alway filled with great people and beautiful landscape. Can’t beat a night out in Cherry Creek either!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Wow, this could be a long list! First off I want to thank my parents for their never ending love and support for the passions I have chosen to pursue. I also want to give a huge shoutout to my partner Taylor who has been nothing short of incredible throughout this entire journey to get where I am today. Shoutout to Dr. Darren Murphy and The Source Chiropractic – Denver for providing such a beautiful space and the opportunity to serve this Denver community at a hight level.

So much love and appreciation for all of you!
