TESTIMONIAL FOR FOOT PAIN AND HIP PAIN
"I've been seeing Dr. Kate for chiropractic care for 10+ years. I've been having hip issues off and on for at least 2 or 3 years. I had four treatments of Shockwave therapy and I have not had ANY pain since! She also did one treatment on my plantar fasciitis and after a few weeks I noticed I no longer had any pain in my foot. It's been wonderful to be pain free."
"II struggled into my thirties with carrying a great deal of tension in my frame with many side effects including shallow breathing, headaches, and poor performance while playing sports and exercising. Honestly, it made anything but a sedentary lifestyle seem unreachable even though I thought I was perfectly healthy."

"If you just want a "crack and come back" approach, Dr. Kate is not your cup of tea. If you want to change your entire being, resetting our body to the way it was created to be, Dr. Kate is the one. After years of abuse (working, driving, repetitive motions, poor diets) my mind and body suffered chronic pain. While it's a work in progress, I actually enjoy waking up and moving. Dr Kate understands the stress of our modern lifestyles, treating soft tissue as well as bone alignment
She is constantly on the front edge of techniques to help heal. This includes chiropractic, lymph work, muscle release, fascial chain, among other cutting edge approaches. Dr Kate's work is not done at the end of the office appointment. She offers tailor made suggestions to work on between visits to increase well-being for those who are willing. At 65, I often wonder how much my life would have been debilitated from pain and inflammation had I not been fortunate enough to know Dr Kate. I'm not only killing it on the BMX racing but pro-actively enjoying life. Words can't thank you enough!"
