Dr. Katie became interested in Chiropractic after an adjustment relieved her from migraines that she had been experiencing for years. That adjustment made her rethink what she wanted to do as a career and she began to research chiropractic. Dr. Katie loved that chiropractic allowed the body to heal itself and function more efficiently without the help of medicines.
While in practice, she found her patients needed much more help with their health. Many were just taking medication to get by and manage their symptoms.
