About Dr. Wigness

I was born and raised in Minot, North Dakota. I attended the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks and spent a semester in Karlstad, Sweden on an exchange. After returning to the states, I attended Northwestern Health Science University in Minneapolis, graduating in 2001. I started Whitefish Chiropractic in 2003 after working for a year in Ohio. Originally practicing in downtown Whitefish; current offices are located at the Bridge Medical Center, Glacier Medical Associates and in Kalispell. I specialize in soft tissue injuries, neurological pain, scar tissue release and extremity (shoulder, knee, ankle, etc) injuries. I am certified in Motion Palpation, Active Release Technique, and Graston Technique – soft tissue mobilization. I have taught nationally and internationally on concussions, soft tissue mobilization, peripheral nerve entrapments and taping techniques. I am currently working on groundbreaking neurodevelopmental and rehabilitation principles through the Prague School.

Just For Fun

When not at work, I can be found snowboarding, golfing, fishing, hiking, and hunting. I love spending time with my wife Patti and our three dogs Bridger, Odin, and Max.

Get to know Dr. Sybrant

Dr. Mike Sybrant Earned a degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic at the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon. Through the course of his education he grew to respect the complexity of the human body, sparking a desire to learn all he could about treating many conditions and injuries.

About Dr. Sybrant

I born and raised in Casper, Wyoming, where I was active in my church community and enjoyed learning various forms of Karate. I developed an affinity for the great outdoors at a young age while hunting and fishing with my family. While getting my baccalaureate in biology at the University of Wyoming at Casper College, I participated in a bighorn sheep research project. Spending 5 weeks living out of my tent well above tree-line in the Wind River Mountains of Western Wyoming, I realized that my home was, and forever would be, in the Mountain West.

I moved to Portland, Oregon to earn my degree in chiropractic at the University of Western States, based largely on the University’s evidence-based philosophy. Through the course of my education I grew to respect the complexity of the human body, which sparked a desire to learn all I could about treating myriad conditions and injuries. I am full-body certified in the Active Release Technique, highly regarded as one of the most complete and effective treatments for soft tissue injuries. I am also trained in and utilize the Graston Technique for the mobilization of soft tissues. Using the Selective Functional Movement Assessment during evaluation of a patient is also a great way to determine areas of compromise based on function, rather than “chasing pain.”

Just For Fun

After graduating Summa Cum Laude with my Doctorate of Chiropractic, I was eager to get back to the Mountain West, specifically Whitefish, Montana. I was familiar with the area after attending family reunions in Flathead County as a child; my grandmother is originally from Eureka and I still have family in the Whitefish/Kalispell region. I enjoy many activities that this valley has to offer, including archery hunting, fly fishing, hiking and snowboarding.

My wife Jen and I welcomed our beautiful baby daughter Finley to our family in August of 2014 and continue to enjoy watching her grow. An average weekend will find me hiking or snowshoeing with my wife, daughter and dog Molly.
