Dr. Kristin loves helping people feel their best. To her, there is no greater reward than watching someone move beyond the things that have held them back, and really begin to flourish. Dr. Kristin’s strengths as a doctor are that she listens carefully, is thorough with examination and coordination of care, and truly focuses on each person’s unique needs. When it comes to chiropractic adjustments, she is proficient in several different adjusting techniques from dynamic hands-on adjustments to very gentle low force techniques, which allows her to tailor her care to patient preferences and circumstances. In addition, she has advanced training in specialties to complement her care such as acupuncture, Graston soft-tissue mobilization, nutrition response testing, and more.
Dr. Kristin is a graduate of Northwestern College of Chiropractic and the University of Wisconsin LaCrosse. Just like you, Dr. Kristin understands the demands of balancing work-life and a family. In addition to her work as a chiropractor and small business owner, she is a wife, mother, and a member of a large extended family. She credits chiropractic care and its emphasis on a healthy lifestyle for helping her to find balance and stay focused on what matters to her the most.
Dr. Kristin is an adjunct clinical faculty member at Northwestern Health Sciences University and often hosts chiropractic interns during their final year of study. Fun fact: Dr. Kristin began her work in this clinic as an intern under the supervision of our former owner, Dr. Michelle Greenman. Understanding how essential a comprehensive internship is to developing good doctoring skills, she is passionate about teaching the future leaders of her profession. And our patient’s love it too… the enthusiasm and attentive care that interns bring into our work makes it an extra special place.
“My husband and I often tell our son that in our family, we are ‘helpers’. Connecting with our neighbors and working to improve the lives of others is important to us. What a blessing it is that I get to wake up everyday and do this work to create a healthier community.”—Dr. Kristin Johnson
