Meet the Doctor

.

Dr. Kristina Gibbons, D.C. earned her doctorate at Cleveland Chiropractic College, Kansas City. She has practiced in both the Kansas City metro area as well as Franklin County for over 9 years. Her emphasis is in upper and lower extremities including plantar fasciitis, shoulder injuries, sciatica, TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome and concussion care but has a full range of techniques to help with a wide variety of health and wellness concerns.

Her wellness centered philosophy includes nutritional counseling that starts in the refrigerator while offering an excellent variety of high-quality supplements to help with vitamin deficiencies and weight management.

1. Why/how did you become a chiropractor, and how long have you been practicing? 
In the summer of 1999, I was rear-ended by a semi-tractor trailer and pushed into another car. I was forced to deal with a tremendous amount of health issues which caused me to begin failing my college classes. As a last ditch effort, I sought help from a chiropractor. This chiropractor not only helped me with my health, he inspired me to do the same for others. It was from that point that I dedicated myself to the study of Chiropractic and natural healing. I have been practicing and sharing my story now for over 10 years. 

2. Have there been, or are there any other DCs (or DCs to be) in your family? 
I am a first generation college student. Neither my father nor my mother had a degree when I began to attend college. Due to the injuries sustained in my accident, I was advised that child-bearing may be difficult, if not impossible, so it is unlikely that I will ever have children to carry on the tradition. I would like to note, however, that I did encourage my mother to go back to school while I was attending Cleveland Chiropractic College, and she now has both her Bachelor’s Degree in Business and her MBA! She helps me quite a lot in my practice and it’s a joy to have someone help me who understands how much this profession changed my life. 

3. What is your favorite thing about being a DC, or about chiropractic? 
This is a difficult question because I have two: 1) Watching people begin the journey toward (and hopefully reach) their optimum health naturally; and 2) Educating people about health, life, nutrition, posture, etc. I never dreamed that I could incorporate my two favorite hobbies, healing and talking, into one profession, and make a living doing it! Someone pinch me…

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I like Dr. Kris & staff very much. Been dealing with chronic low back pain for years. Had seen another chiropractor but Dr. Kris was the first doctor who took the time to look at what might be causing these issues. Have had ankle problems and flat feet. 10yrs ago had severe ankle injury with surgery. Nothing but pain afterward that no other doctor could help. Got custom orthotics. These little inserts have done so much for the way I walk & stand that I don’t even notice I’m wearing them anymore. Can’t say enough but thanks!"

  • "Dr. Kris and staff are amazing! I'm working away from home. My wife found Dr. Kris online. I came in barely able to walk due to a back injury. Dr. Kris didn't just adjust me and shoot me out the door, she took the time to figure out exactly what my injury was then set up my treatment plan. I can now say after just 8 visits I'm back to feeling like myself again! I also have never had a doctor work with my insurance company the way they have. They go above and beyond to get my insurance claims taken care of with no hassles. I honestly feel I've not only found a great chiropractor away from home but someone who cares about my well being!!"
