Bio
While still a pre-vet/biology major at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2002, Dr. King began seeing a chiropractor for lower back pain. She was so impressed by how the chiropractor was able to diagnose and treat her problem with little more than his hands that she decided to change her career path from veterinary medicine to chiropractic. After graduating from WPI in 2003 with high honors, she enrolled at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. In 2008 she graduated as valedictorian of her class. She returned to Massachusetts after graduation and honed her skills as an associate chiropractor at Fairway Chiropractic Clinic in Tewksbury for a year and a half before deciding to open her own practice.

Dr. King takes an integrative approach to treating her patients. In addition to the usual chiropractic adjustment, most patients receive some type of muscle work (massage, stretching, etc.), rehabilitative exercises, and lifestyle modifications. She also commonly works in conjunction with other doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and acupuncturists to get the best results for her patients. Some of Dr. King’s specialties include prenatal and postpartum chiropractic care, and the Graston Technique®.

Dr. King lives in her hometown of Tewksbury with her husband, Jeff, and their two mixed-breed dogs, Lola and Bodhi. In June 2010, they welcomed their new son, Collin, into the world. When she is not busy seeing patients, Dr. King spends most of her time being a new mom. She also enjoys reading, watching movies, photography, and hiking with her dogs.
