Living Tree Chiropractic is owned and operated by Chiropractor Dr. Kyle J Depinet. Born and raised in Seneca County, Depinet attended elementary, middle and high school at Seneca East where he developed a passion for sports of all types. Sports were arguably the most important thing in his life during those years . With that being said, as each week’s Friday football game approached there was no time for pain in his schedule. Kyle visited local Chiropractors and found great relief from the adjustments he received, but at that time he hadn't thought of chiropractic as a possible career path. It wasn't until after he had been accepted to Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio that his father suggested the idea. Kyle’s father, Scott, could see how his son’s passion for sports and his desire to give back to the community could be combined in one profession. For Kyle there was a moment of shocking realization of just how perfect the suggestion was and his decision was made. At his final home football game, senior night, the announcer stated “Kyle will attend Heidelberg University next fall to begin his path to becoming a Chiropractor”. After earning a bachelor’s degree in health science with a minor in wellness from Heidelberg, Depinet was accepted to the Palmer College of Chiropractic branch in Port Orange, Florida to continue his dream.
During his time at Palmer Chiropractic he earned and was awarded Dean’s List honors eight out of the nine academic quarters. In his clinical stage he acquired more than 900 clinical hours while helping a variety of patients and using many Chiropractic techniques. These efforts ultimately lead to his nomination for the school’s Clinical Excellence award. To further his education he participated in extracurricular classes to gain an understanding of the Pettibone,Trigger point, and Flexion and Distraction treatment protocols. He has also earned an Activator protocol certification and a certificate of completion of the Charrette Extremity and Spinal Adjusting Seminar. Prior to graduation he completed all aspects of the national chiropractic board along with gaining the certification of physiotherapy from National Board of Chiropractic Examiners. In December 2019 he graduated from Palmer at which point he was awarded academic honors.
Following graduation, it was time to decide on a location where he wanted to practice. There were many options but just as it was family and the local community that introduced him to chiropractic, it was family and the community that brought Kyle back home to Ohio and to the city of Willard. Kyle’s younger sister, Emily, married Jonathon Schloemer in the summer of 2018. The two settled in Willard where Jonny, along with his brother and father, is part owner of Schloemer Masonry and Excavating. Emily and Jonny welcomed their first child, Kolson, home to Willard in August of 2019. Dr. Depinet has met many wonderful people in Willard and is looking forward to building relationships with and providing healthcare for the hard working individuals of the community. The extensive amount of healthcare, farming, service and industry that coexists with a small town feel along with the camaraderie of the people involved with the organizations, churches and local school systems in the Huron and Seneca county area made Willard an easy decision as a location to start practice for Dr. Depinet. He is compassionate and very excited about providing chiropractic health care to the people of Willard and its surrounding communities.
