Dr. David Vik
About our Doctor
Dr. David Vik was born on June 4th, 1964, in Ft. Stewart, Georgia and is last of four children born to his parents. He has colonial roots, the first arriving in Jamestown, Virginia in 1610. He comes from a long heritage of soldiers in the American Army, both of his brothers, his father, his grandfather and many in previous generations serving. His father, a native of Wolf Point, Montana, retired a Master Sergeant and afterwards pursued a career in the Boy Scouts of America for 20 years. His mother, whose family came west with the westward expansion after the Civil War, followed her husband around the United States and the world raising their children and providing a home. Dr. Vik and both of his brothers are Eagle Scouts.
While studying at Kansas State University he was stationed at Ft. Riley, Kansas where he served as an air evac medic, working in a nursing home once he was out of the Army. Based on his background in the military he planned to pursue a career in medicine, but after caring for residents in a nursing home and witnessing the effects of over medication, became dismayed when the residents underwent a medical procedure. Once taking them off of the medications prior to the procedure he noticed both their mental and physical health improve, only to deteriorate once again when they returned to the nursing home and resumed their medications. Upon mentioning this to his mother, who had been a chiropractic patient for years, she suggested he look into chiropractic as an alternative. This resonated with him, and Dr. Dave decided to enter into a career to help ensure true health and wellness to the people in his community he knew growing up as a child in Pueblo.
Upon graduating from Kansas State University with a degree in Languages he moved to Chicago where he received a bachelors degree in Human Biology, studied and graduated from chiropractic school. It was there that he met his wife to be, Dr. Angela Vik, who also moved to Chicago to study chiropractic. She is a native of Lindsay, Ontario, Canada. Upon graduation, they moved to Harlingen in the Rio Grand Valley of south Texas to pursue job opportunities that provided an opportunity to serve people in a unique clinical and cultural experience. This allowed Dr. Dave to further utilize and build upon his Spanish speaking abilities. After five years of practice, they returned to the Pueblo area in 1997 to be closer to family, raise their own family, and serve the families of southern Colorado in a vibrant, growing community. They have been married since 1996 and have three children, Alexa, Sydney, and Casey.
Dr. Vik believes that anyone who has the training, the skills, the education and the knowledge to care for people and their families live the healthiest and highest quality of life possible have the responsibility to do so and for as long as they can. He is constantly pursuing more ways to serve individuals and their families, and is currently advancing his education by working to receive his fellowship certification from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (I.C.P.A). He is also certified in the Webster Technique.
Dr. Vik is described by his practice members as animated and passionate about life, health and chiropractic. He and his staff practice with a warm and approachable heart, they are honest, committed, and hard working.
