Kristin assesses movement patterns throughout the body to help diagnose and treat stiffness and instability. She treats patients of all ages with a hands-on approach, using a balance of manual therapy, gentle adjusting, and craniosacral therapy, along with therapeutic exercise, so that patients heal faster with fewer repeat injuries.
She understands how the mind and the body are connected, and how stress can play a role in each of our lives. Reducing pain and stiffness can reduce that stress.
Her areas of interest include
- All aspects of injury recovery
- Sciatica and arm pain, numbness, or tingling
- Sport and exercise related injuries
- Pediatrics and childbearing issues
She believes that medicine is a partnership between doctor and patient. “I like to help my patients reach their goals. When they come in and tell me that they completed a triathlon after recovering from an injury, or that they’ve been playing with their grandchild when they hadn’t been able to do that before, I know they’re happy, and that makes me happy!”
Dr. Wright graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1983. Her post-graduate training included courses in craniosacral therapy with Alain Gehin DO of the European College of Etiopathy, Geneva, Switzerland.
Her volunteer activities have included the “Use Your Head, Use Your Helmet” YMCA bicycle helmet giveaway, where she purchased and distributed 500 new helmets for Bicycle Safety Week, and work with the medical support team for the 2014 Rock and Roll Marathon.
