Chiropractic Physician

There is no question in Dr. Keri’s mind that she has chosen the right profession to fulfill her life purpose.  From her first encounter with chiropractic ten years after being injured in a car accident and suffering daily migraine headaches, the principles and philosophies of chiropractic perfectly aligned with her core beliefs about the body’s inner wisdom, the power which allows the body to self-heal and self-regulate.  A chiropractor, who she met at a community event, helped her overcome spine and nerve injury and educated her on maintaining her health.  This positive experience changed Dr. Keri’s life forever.
