laser light show

Dr. Chad Woolner: What’s going on everybody? Dr. Chad Woolner here with Dr. Andrew Wells. And on today’s episode of the laser light show, we have with us our good friend and special guest, Dr. Kevin Flythe. We’re so excited to chat with him about how he is using lasers to help high-performance athletes. So let’s get started. 



Dr. Andrew Wells

Dr. Chad Woolner

Dr. Kevin Flythe


Dr. Chad Woolner: Growing up in Portland, Oregon, I used to love going to laser light shows at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry; they would put on these amazing light shows with incredible designs synced up to some of my favorite music from the Beatles to Pink Floyd to Jimi Hendrix and Metallica. They were awesome. Little did I know then that lasers would have such a profound effect on my life decades later. As a chiropractic physician, I have seen firsthand just how powerful laser therapy is at helping patients struggling with a wide range of health problems. As the leader in laser therapy, Erchonia has pioneered the field in obtaining 20 of the 23 total FDA clearances for therapeutic application of lasers. On this podcast, we’ll explore the science and technology and physiology behind what makes these tools so powerful. Join me as we explore low-level laser therapy. I’m Dr. Chad Woolner, along with my good friend, Dr. Andrew Wells, and welcome to the laser light show. All right, welcome to the show, everybody. We are super excited we have with us today. Our good friend, Dr. Kevin Flythe, all the way from Georgia. Is that right down in Georgia.

Dr. Kevin Flythe: Yes, indeed, Marietta was right outside of Atlanta,


Dr. Chad Woolner: Marietta, Georgia. So we first met Kevin at our lab, I should say last and first-ever, not to be the last laser MBA seminar. And that was down in Phoenix. And Kevin was right there with us. We had an absolute blast getting to meet him and getting to know a little bit about some of the cool things he’s doing. So it’s great to connect with you again, my friend. We’re glad to have you here with us.


Dr. Kevin Flythe: Well, I’m glad to be here. Thank you so much for having me today. And allow me to share a bit of what I’ve experienced utilizing lasers over these many, many years. And then to hopefully enlighten and enrich some of the aspects of other physicians and other practitioners that are using them as well.


Dr. Chad Woolner: Fantastic. Yeah. Maybe for those listening, give us a quick snapshot of your story. Number one, professionally, how you got into what you’re doing. And then number two, kind of how your world got introduced in terms of incorporating and using Erchonia lasers?


Dr. Kevin Flythe: Well, I mean, first, me overall starting out undergraduate degree was in biology with a focus on biomedical engineering. So I’ve always grown up around the idea of health and wellness basically on the point because my parents were really those who are hard workers. So I’m a very humble background, but around people who always in pain. And then on the other side of it, it’s crazy now getting exposed to anatomy by having godparents that worked in the unfortunate point of mortuary business, always roam around bodies. So I’ve always been interested in anatomy and things of that nature. But growing up initially dealing with military doctors or Navy doctors. I initially started out as a Navy corpsman. And then my father passed away, and then I got out of the service, and then ended up going to college and started my college career with a focus on biomedical engineering. With the mindset of becoming a physician, as many of us as chiropractors, a lot of times say, we’re going to become medical doctors and we change paths. But that was directed by what I was used to dealing with. But after being an athlete all throughout, from junior high all the way through high school, and then when I did go to college, even playing ball, the first part of my time there and wrestling and martial arts and whatnot, the injuries that I had, and then looking at what my parents had endured with failed surgeries, I started studying the body more in detail. And then with the point of understanding energetic medicine, too. So I got exposed to it, I got certified as a physical therapy assistant, got certified as a personal trainer, started working at Duke University, and then physical therapy department and was one of the initial points of their reference as doing starting back school there. And most of the physical therapists there at Duke at that time were from the UK or either from Australia or New Zealand in places of that nature. So in those particular areas, chiropractic, physical therapy, your surgery, I mean, all aspects of medicine, they pretty much work together unlike what we have here. Interesting. So that exposed me to a lot of a lot of dynamics of how to integrate and being one who had many concussions and whatnot from football and of course martial law has been dumped on my head a few times. I suffer from migraine headaches. And one of my older fraternity brothers was a chiropractor. Chiropractic wasn’t even on my radar. I didn’t understand it. But I started learning McKenzie technique, which is, you know, basically long axis manipulation from one of my primary advisors when we started the back school layer, dude. So I chose the IDs, and chiropractic would be the way that I would go because chiropractic is what took my migraine headaches away. And from that point, I became a better athlete; I was able to function I’m able to think better. So I was like, this is definitely the route that I would take. So I ended up here in Atlanta, Georgia, and Life University at that time Life College, which is I’m old, William, so old school and 20 plus years of practicing. So that has been my start. What took me from there over time, upon graduation, I was always interested, and I was one of the senior assistants in the actual clinic. So I was able to adjust a bit more without clinic doctors because I could become proficient in techniques. But I knew there was more. So I got really further along into kinesiology applied kinesiology, clinical Kinesiology. And then I also traveled to India because my godparents were from there and started studying Ayurvedic medicine. Wow. Which is more looking at energetic aspects of it. So they got into it and started working with athletes during that time because I trained professional basketball players during the offseason while I was still in school, and then also when I graduated before I got licensed, that’s what I was doing. So I started understanding mind-body and adding in the additional aspect of spirit into the point of how I wanted to practice. When I got exposed to Erchonia lasers, it was to Dr. Jeff Spencer, which is uh, is the old one that’s out there, which at that time, he was Lance Armstrong’s Doctor sounds like how can this man utilize this type of energy or this type of medicine or this type of instrument, and help this man; he’s winning the Tour de France; he’s doing all this other stuff. And then I got exposed to a couple of other doctors, Dr. Evan Milan North, who was big in applied kinesiology but he was also using the lasers. Then it became Dr. John Brimhall. All of these doctors using lasers using footbaths, using muscle testing, doing all this stuff. I was like now starting to see what real hands-on points of chiropractic is along with the point of utilizing energy. So I looked at laser as an energetic medicine, more so than anything more an energetic force that I can use to enhance every aspect of who I was touching.


Dr. Chad Woolner: Wow, what an incredible and diverse background that you have. What are you going to say Andrew?


Dr. Andrew Wells: I found that for some reason, as chiropractors, we work in energy work, but sometimes I think it’s pigeonholed into like mechanical work. And, and that was, that was the thing, you know, we talked about this quite a few times on the podcast. You know, that’s the it’s like the universal tool technique that you can use is for everybody’s energy work. And then a little bit deeper it was well what tools can you use for energy work lasers across all all all across all boards, essentially. And that’s, but I want to just kind of echo what Chad said you have a really really diverse background. I don’t know anyone who’s been through PT chiropractic, air, air, Vedic medicine, bio, biomedical engineering, like you’ve had a, you have a valuable brain sitting on your shoulders. Yeah.


Dr. Kevin Flythe: I appreciate that.


Dr. Chad Woolner: I wanted to ask you it kind of alluded to this, but let’s get a little bit more specific. What sports were you specifically doing? What martial arts were you specifically do? I’m curious to know I’m sure other people are as well.


Dr. Kevin Flythe: Actually, I played football. I wrestled. I ran track. I played baseball. And then I did judo and jujitsu, outside of my wrestling. And then when I moved here, I got a bit more into jujitsu and then started Wing Chun kung fu. Wow. So now and now I’ve realized as getting older, being tossed around isn’t quite as much fun. So now I’m getting more into Tai Chi and more Qigong type work focusing on energetic internal healing. So the next time


Dr. Chad Woolner: I’m starting to notice a parallel path in terms of your eclectic background in sports, matches and dovetails pretty well with your background in medicine, no doubt. So it’s, it’s again, diverse as well. I’m going to take a quick personal moment to take a proud dad brag moment my son Sam just finished. He qualified for state for track here in Idaho. Just finished last week, in fact, placed fourth in the 100 He he broke the school was record for fastest 100. At his high school. He finished the 100 at 10.86 was his fastest time that was his PR. And to put it in perspective, the kid who took first in state was at a four-day school my son’s at a five high school this kid is in Burley Idaho you can look him up, he is the number one. nationally ranked sprinter in the 100. Right now at this time, his name is Gatling Baird, he blew everybody out it was it was a sight to behold, he blew everyone out of the water, he got a 10.15 in the 100. And so to put it in perspective, the next the next fastest kid was 10.7. So the 10.7 was the next fastest and then my son to put it in perspective, he placed fourth for the 5A 10.86 was where he was at. And just for those who I didn’t know this until like my son was involved in it, like, you start getting sub 11 in in track for the 100 You’re you’re getting crazy fast, like and so it’s joining, I was super proud of my son, he placed fourth for the 105th for the four by 200. And then six or the the 200 meter. And so it was cool. But But yes, so in terms of using these lasers with athletes, you’ve had the opportunity to work with, you know, obviously, middle school, high school, college and pro athletes tell us a little bit about maybe some of the ways in which you’re using these lasers, what you’re seeing how you’re helping maybe even some of the protocols for the docs, who are who are listening who are clamoring, wanting to know how they can get better results with high-performance athletes.


Dr. Kevin Flythe: Well, one of the best parts about it. And it’s crazy enough, even not directly in my back door, but close to me. One of my classmates is one of the teachers for Erchonia. Dr. Jerome Maruka, Jerome and I actually went to school together. So he and I have both have always been on the point of lifting and sports and athletics. So we pretty much don’t talk very often. And whenever we do, it’s like a solid brotherly workshop connection, energetic mindset. So the way that we look at athletes, the way we talk about it, especially if the younger we can get them, the more advanced and more dynamic, they’ll become the majority of the kids that I work with. And if I catch them at an early phase, utilizing laser, the adjustments, and then also what I call my body spirit connection work during the energetic medicine, because a lot of times these kids have to find themselves. The lasers help enhance it. Because the thing is, naturally when we start talking about frequency, I use sound I use color lenses along with the lasers, and then nutrition, and then to a lot of positive affirmation work. So when I tell them a lot of times utilizing laser, all I’m doing is driving and into you with at speed of light. You know, and that’s the main part about it. And now we’ve gotten to a point of utilizing the violet laser violet laser, we know what Erchonia It talks about an opponent of it with you know, Alta, antiviral, antifungal, and all the other things, it’s great, but at that particular nanometer of that point, that also exposes all the deep emotions of a person. So I can find where there’s weakness in the body. And then to we can bring it to the forefront. You know what the red, we’re going to upregulate downregulate. But now that I’ve gotten that green, it’s turned up the volume a whole nother level. And then as we learn and as we talked about there, and Phoenix when we’re stacking these things, which that gave me a whole new point, I’ve got the four or five here, the 635. I mean, I use mol Yeah, and it’s amazing working with these kids. But the main part about it, even my professional athletes, like I had a boxer in yesterday. Unfortunately, his last fight, it got pretty good. And it gave him a concussion, a real bad concussion. So I had to reset his brain, I mean, everything I do is in motion. Because the body is in motion, the brain has to correspond with the motion. So and then to whatever sport or athletic if there’s a golfer, I’m putting a golf club in his hand, and I’m laser laser in his brain laser in his body. If it’s a boxer, we put gloves on and put mitts and I put them on vibration plates do everything that I can to bring as much information to their brain as I can. If we have concussions on the other hand, and the thing is we start out slow and we start working on finding the most intricate parts of the brain so we can end up finding out where the weakness is like I had a kid and the other day when we do the countdown from 100 to one when looking at left brain activity, it can make it to 98 without full blown totally weak, so we had to find out whether weakness was so that laser has advanced so much of the points of recovery while on your normal type of deals. When they go in for a concussion test or any custom concussion protocol. They tell these kids lay down, relax, chill out, don’t move. Don’t do it. That’s that’s totally contradictory to anything. What should we do?


Dr. Chad Woolner: Yeah,


Dr. Kevin Flythe: You know, so It’s been major in that point and like you’re talking about your son. I mean, I have kids that come in as far as a point for football, for example, that we’re running a 454 640. By the time I get them on a viaplay, start finding out where it is find out what’s offset in that nervous system. And then we come back, adjust, really laser, getting back on a vibration play, haven’t go through particular motions, the majority of my kids within appointment within 30 days, if not less, I have them running for 344 on the easing, cutting that time majorly. And then we do affirmation work. So as they’re going through the affirmations, I’m laser in their brain, I find it out in point are you depressed? Is that something that is pointed to allowing your left brain to supersede or be overthinking over analyzing, so I kind of take the laser protocols a little bit higher, a little bit different, which I’m pretty sure I’m going to spend time with Dr. Dr. Berry at the Chicago seminars. And so I’m actually gonna pick his brain, because I know that he does some of the same stuff, you know, that I do, but higher level. So our goal is the mindset of balancing that gut and you know, with Dr. Silverman, you know, going over that gut when you guys were exposing this Arona that’s the only one I don’t have any office, but I’ve got this, I got the 635 Well, I’ll take another laser, I’m over that gut, clarifying endpoint of cleaning and gut brain axis, you know, because a lot of these athletes will come across now have ADD ADHD. Yeah. And a lot of times it’s associated with their diet. So changing a lot of that to, you know, an endpoint. So I explained to them, when we put this light on, you were also firing off in water molecules, your brain is mostly water and fat. Until we hit that gut, if you’re not hydrated correctly, we don’t have the proper minerals. And the thing is we can’t get the electrical impulses, we need to go to the rest of it aspects of the body. So it’s wide based, you know, as we had discussed and talked about, I was abandoned Holyfield’s doctor. And throughout his years and before he finally retired was the thing is, is that I brought laser. That was when my time I had my peel five. Nicely, I borrowed a peel three, when I first started working with him, and then bought a peel five, and then started working with a bear and totally changed his order. Because a lot of the points of old concussions, old injuries, I had to go through a lot of form applied kinesiology, injury recall. So it wasn’t until we started peeling the layers, and utilizing laser with that, that we got the progress that we had, in fact, the first year that I worked with him, I I didn’t charge him anything. Some other doctors watch me at a seminar doing some work. And they were like we want you to come to work with and that whole motion then was doing the foot baths was clearing and cleansing his liver. But when I brought the laser into it, even lasering in the water while he was in the foot bath made a world of difference. Wow, by detoxifying his body. But the biggest portion of that I told him, I don’t want to charge you until we get a strap back around your waist, meaning that belt, and I have pictures on my wall in the office of him getting that me holding the belt. And then from there after. Until he retired. I was the one the fourth man in the corner and carrying the belt into the ring.


Dr. Chad Woolner: That’s amazing. So cool. A couple of thoughts that I wanted to kind of circle back to, you mentioned there. Number one, I love what you’ve shared here. I think a lot of Docs and a lot of patients are going to really appreciate what you’ve shared here because it’s incredible. There’s just a wealth of information there. But I was gonna say You know, it’s interesting because for those who are listening who may not be aware, the most current up-to-date literature somewhat contradicts some of the conventional wisdom in terms of management of concussions. Old school concussion management was very much this, you need to wait, you need to rest, you need to give yourself plenty of time off and not put any sort of what they would consider, quote unquote, stress on the brain. And it sounds to me very similar to what old school thinking regarding sprain Strain Injuries was, right? You got to bed rest, bed rest, bed rest is the answer. What the most current literature seems to be indicating. And it’s funny because I just came across a couple of studies yesterday doing some research. Showing the exact opposite is true is that the brain can tolerate so long as it’s being monitored or monitored appropriately. Relatively immediate input right in the form of various activity movement-based exercise-based activities. And again, you couple that with things like low-level laser, that’s going to dramatically help ensure that you’re not overstressing or overstimulating or overloading the brain after a concussion injury but definitely, for those who have heard that after a concussion you need to kind of watch and wait it out for a week, two weeks. however long, that’s not what the most current literature is suggesting, as you kind of had indicated already and what you’re doing, clearly you’re getting. And that kind of ties into the other point that I was going to say is that the thing that I really like, and I hope people are cluing into, is that when you look at not only what you’re doing, but also what Dr. Berry does, and a lot of these other really high-level brilliant practitioners are doing is the therapies that they’re prescribing and using and doing with their patients are highly functional, highly. I’m just going to use the term pragmatic, right? You said, for instance, if somebody’s a boxer, you’re going to put boxing gloves on them while you’re doing therapy. That might seem a little strange to someone. But I think the thing is that makes that should make tons of sense is what you’re trying to do is mimic as best you can real-world scenarios so that the therapy becomes applicable to as applicable or as close to real life for that individual as possible. Right. So maybe speak to that too, a little bit unless, Andrew, was there other points that you wanted to bring up too.


Dr. Andrew Wells: Yeah, that was a question. I have one of their one of their questions for you. But yeah, maybe start with Chad’s question?


Dr. Kevin Flythe: Well, as you as you just stated, that’s what I want to do. The majority of the time, I mean, even an idea of track athletes. I mean, I have them go through the point of here in the office, I have enough of what I call my landing strip. And I pointed I have patients in the office sit in chairs, and I’m like, Why do you have this kid going through here doing a step by step, you know, like he’s on the track drill. And I was like, because I need his brain to fire off and calculate, but you walk them behind him with this light on his brain and you got another one on his lower back? What are you doing, that not only makes other patients aware of what I’m doing, but it also sees the dynamic, and then I’ll put him on our video. And sometimes I’ll even show him I said, Watch the lag in his movement. When we go down, I said, but when I come back, watch how his step picks up, the brain catches up because the aspect of utilizing the laser and the frequency, we own the cerebellum. And we know the majority of that information balance and coordination is gonna come on to that cerebellum. I said, I’m having him breathe, you will hear me breathe with your Hemi count with them. So I’m counting steps doing everything. So I’m putting input into the brain as he’s receiving it and the body is giving me that information back. So I can have not only a diagnostic measure, by the vision of seeing the movement, but we have a productive point at that time to to see what this is doing. The body is catching up. Our body is so dynamic. But you know, the thing is, most people only look at where dysfunction is. I want to find the function. So I calculate things from weakness first and build up the strength while most other practitioners and other disciplines look for strength. And they measured against the weakness. If we if we do like one of the prime examples, when I used to train some of the NBA athletes, Shaquille O’Neal was a prime example. from team to team that he went to he had injury after injury after injury. It wasn’t until he went out west and went to like the Phoenix Suns and went into the point of the Lakers and other points, they started training him from his weakness, not his strength. So when you find the weakness is like a house with an uneven foundation, you know, we utilize that in chiropractic talking about the point of balance the body all the time. But the same thing goes along with the point of utilizing the laser utilizing the technology we have. It’s about the point about find out where it’s weak, let’s build up that weakness and get it close to the strength. And then once we do that, and then we want a more even playing field. Otherwise, you go put somebody out there, then they’re going to get re injured after time after time after time. And then to the memory of pain from an injury, we have to eradicate that otherwise they’re going to be running scared playing scared, boxing, scared, whatever. So we have to erase that from the brain. So there’s other techniques that I utilize, which is quantum neurology. That will come into play and we go through a race protocol. So I’ll get literally on an open wound sometimes in here and tap all along and extremity while I’m lasering and tell him Does it hurt Does it hurt it long as they look at it and see it and I’ll have him sit up and look at it as I’m doing it because my first instinct is with the sympathetic nervous system being in that fight or flight mode. We have to get that to calm down so parasympathetic module is kicking in so we can calm their system down first. Because only at that point is the body’s going to heal. And we’re still running on fight or flight because the pain we felt initially that wound that sprain strain or any of that never get back to where it supposed to be that bring all of that to the forefront. It’s like a big screen like if you’re if you’re a trader it was that you never seen one trade stocks one screen in front of they got multiple screens when they want to make money. So I’d like to tell them I want to cash in today we will have to get assets. We don’t want to focus on the liability we have to bring up your assets. So that’s kind of the dialogue that I use in the office. So I’m utilizing the laser so we can bring it on. So like you said, putting on boxing gloves, I want you to put it on because thing is you got punched in the face. Next time you put gloves on your first instinct is going to be fight or flight as soon as you put the gloves on, and she’s like I’m about to get knocked out again, if I’m out here, and I’m gonna be playing tennis, and I sprained my ankle, and the thing is, when you move on a vibration plane, I want you to put that tennis racket in your hand, I want you to feel what it is that you got your grip because if you spray that left ankle and your right hand tennis player, your grip, the analogous point of it is the sense of it, your right hand is going to transfer that same motion, it’s coming across to your left foot. So I want motion and action, everything cross patterns, everything, I tried to put it all in there. So that way, when we’re bringing forth the laser, and we’re bringing forth movement, I need everything and be like the best calculation we can. And the points going forward. Yeah, obviously.


Dr. Andrew Wells: Dr. Kevin, you’ve been a lifelong learner. And if doctors are listening to this podcast and like, Man, how did he accumulate, learn apply these protocols? Where are some of the places that you go to learn these things like certification programs, lectures? Who do you follow? We’re like, Who are you studying right now? Where are you? Where are you? Where’s your academic focus?


Dr. Kevin Flythe: Well, I have my academic focus, which I got a little juice, I guess being out with you guys. In Phoenix, I was actually the cat watching Dr. Berry when you guys had done some other work with him, with David Kirkpatrick. Looking, watching, watching him with her and watching some of the other ideas that he has. I know, he’s a brilliant guy. And probably hard to grasp a lot of information. But my mindset has always been if you’re the best of the best. And you’re doing something that I am interested in, I love the thing is I want to learn from you. And then the bottom line at the end of that, normally, when we meet, then we end up learning from one another. So it should always be a constant exchange, like, you know, like I named Dr. Brimhall. I mean, hardly anybody hears a lot about Brimhall anymore because he doesn’t show a lot. But guys had been in practice for a long time, because especially in Arizona, he was in Mesa flat forever, and everybody was playing for the miracles. Now he’s in Colorado. So you look at that Dr. Malana, which I mean was big time with the Kansas City Chiefs way back in a way. You know, those guys and the doc Dr. Spencer, so I look at those who are really progressing and the things that I’m interested in. And that’s what I would tell any practice, we can never learn it all. But if your niche is your niche, meaning your interest is what it is, I love sports and athletics. I mean, when I worked in physical therapy, one of the biggest things I enjoyed was training. Patients who have prosthetic limbs, was one of the biggest things once they get into getting their gait back together, getting their confidence in utilizing a prosthetic limb. And fortunately, right next door to the outpatient physical therapy, there was the process, they will actually build and create the prosthesis. I would actually go over sometimes and watch and learn what they were doing, because that was that biomedical kind of engineering mindset that I had. So everything I watched was based on movement. So my buddies now and even some of the surgeons I deal with because I do manipulation on anesthesia, too. And then Watch Me Move a joint and move in extremity. And I don’t have to use a lot of force. That’s because in my mind, and I adjust and do things, a lot of times my eyes closed because I rely on more on what I feel energetically and then to also what I feel with my hands because this is my tool. Sure, my brain is my brain. But my tools are my hands. So I want to feel what’s going on. That’s like, you know, you might hear a lot of people who we’ve ever had, which I’ve been fortunate enough to have a massage from a blind person, wow, is one of the best massages you will ever find. I mean, because the thing is they rely on that tactile sense. And they’ll find themselves and connect with your breathing; they’ll connect with every part of you versus a person who comes in and saying I have multiple, multiple degrees or certificates. And you know, and I hate to get spiritual, but the thing is, it says lean on each other in your understanding right? Now all the ways acknowledge him and he’ll direct your path meaning the God within. So the thing is, is that that’s what gave me your visions gave you your source of where it is what you’re choosing to do. So you tap into that source. So when you tap into that source, and the thing is, is that really the outcome is limitless. You know, and so that’s kind of how I’ve always operated.


Dr. Chad Woolner: That’s beautiful man. What a beautiful outlook, what a beautiful philosophy. And what a beautiful way to practice just in general. It looks like you’ve just done some really incredible things and no doubt many more years to come have some really incredible things So, any final thoughts? Andrew,


Dr. Andrew Wells: Thank you for doing the podcast, I just want to also thank Erchonia for letting Chad and me host this podcast because we get to interview just really amazing people. And I’m always like, I jump, we chat, I jump on these podcasts, and we never really know we don’t have scripting and plans for these, and we never really know what direction they’re gonna go in. And, and more times than not, I’m just kind of blown away and humbled by how many amazing health care providers and people like you, Dr. Kevin, who are helping people just amazing ways, and it’s just very humbling. It’s very also inspiring what you’re doing. And thank you for sharing your story on the podcast. And I hope you know I hope Doc’s and also people in the community that listen to this patients even got some good benefits from it. So thank you for what you do and for sharing this with us.


Dr. Chad Woolner: Yeah, yeah, I would simply 100% Echo exactly what Andrew just said, Dr. Kevin, we, it has been our privilege and honor to have you here with us. I can’t help but think anytime we have guests on the show, whenever they start talking and just sharing their experience and their wisdom, I get excited because I just know just how much other practitioners are going to value it and patients alike are going to value it. It makes the job that we have hosting this podcast and one so stinkin easy, because we just get to have these just really awesome fun conversations. And number two, we just know that the heavy lifting is all on the practitioners we get to interview they just get to share just all this incredible wisdom and knowledge and experience. And so I just know that it’s going to be of a tremendous amount of value, and no doubt it’s going to help change people’s lives. For those who are in the Georgia area, we’ll make sure to put a link in the show to Dr. Kevin and his contact information in clinic because no doubt, we’re gonna get listeners who are gonna be like, I want to see that guy. I’ve got a child who’s doing sports and I want to I want to get some help. So no doubt, we’ll want to connect them with you. And obviously, Erchonia lasers, there’s they have a practitioner finder, if you’re not in that area, or if you’re not having any sort of plans to travel and see Dr. Kevin, but we definitely want this to be a resource for those because obviously, the work that you’re doing can help change a lot of people’s lives. No doubt it already has. And so again, just a tremendous amount of appreciation for you and your time, Dr. Kevin, so thank you.


Dr. Kevin Flythe: Well, thank you both Dr. Andrew and Dr. Chad for having me on the podcast. I mean, I listened to it regularly when you got us on there, and I love it. Because the idea that if we don’t share with one another, then we’ll never learn. So I mean, it’s all about sharing experience sharing testimonies. The whole idea of it is I explained to a lot of doctors even that I am one of the adjunct professors here for life. And I explained to my students all the time, I don’t want you to be like me, I want you to be better than me. So the mindset of it is this, we have to grow one another and to you know, each one, teach one. So that’s the main portion of it. And I will say never allow fear to be the thing anything that stands in the way of working with anyone because that’s false evidence appearing real. So just have faith in focus and that point of focus, follow one course until you’re successful. Don’t stop. Just keep doing it. And you guys keep on and lighten up the world with the idea of this podcast because people need to know more about Erchonia need to know more about laser and just healing overall. I appreciate you for having me on the show today.


Dr. Chad Woolner: Amazing. Yes. And what a great note to end on Dr. Kevin, thank you so much. You know, my son has been entertaining the idea of Cairo school. And I’ve told them to check out life and knowing that you’re an adjunct professor down there, stick with it for a little while longer at least tell my son, if he decides to become a chiropractor, I would love to, I would love nothing more than to have you as one of his adjunct professors. No doubt all the students there are extremely lucky to have you mentoring them and to sharing your wisdom with them. So that’s awesome. We appreciate, again, not only being here with us, but also what an incredible blessing to the profession to have a mentor like you. So that’s awesome. And keep up the great work there in Georgia. And yeah, for those listening, we hope that this has been immensely valuable for you. Share this with others that you feel could benefit because we know that there’s a lot of wisdom and value in what Dr. Kevin is shared today.

About The Guest(s):

Dr. Kevin Flythe began as a Navy corpsman, who soon later found an interest in biomedical engineering and aspirations of becoming a physician after experiencing injuries from athletics and observing their parents’ struggles with failed surgeries. After graduation, Dr. Flythe pursued kinesiology, applied kinesiology, clinical kinesiology, and Ayurvedic medicine in India. 


Dr. Kevin Flythe’s exposure to Erchonia stemmed from Dr. Flythe’s passion for integrating the mind, body, and spirit in their practice. Driven by desire to enhance chiropractic care, Dr. Flythe has expanded into the realm of understanding energetic medicine, seeing lasers as an energetic force to benefit those they touch. 

Key Takeaways:

Find out how a chiropractic neurologist loses faith in traditional medicinal practices and turns towards laser treatments in treating arthritis and joint pain. 

Dr. Flythe partners with Dr. Jerome Maruka, one of their classmates and Erchonia teacher, through their strong connection in lifting, sports, and athletics. Their collaborative approach involves using laser therapy, adjustments, and a unique body-spirit connection work in energetic medicine. Since then, Dr. Flythe has found it imperative to bring attention to the advanced recovery potential of laser therapy compared to traditional protocols.


“So the way that we look at athletes, the way we talk about it,..I call my body spirit connection work during the energetic medicine, because a lot of times these kids have to find themselves. The lasers help enhance it.” -Dr. Kevin Flythe

“I explained to my students all the time, I don’t want you to be like me, I want you to be better than me. So the mindset of it is this, we have to grow one another and to you know, each one, teach one. So that’s the main portion of it.” -Dr. Kevin Flythe

“But you know, the thing is, most people only look at where dysfunction is. I want to find the function. So I calculate things from weakness first and build up strength while most other practitioners and other disciplines look for strength.” – Dr. Kevin Flythe
