Meet the Doctor

Dr. Kimberly A. Martin

Dr. Kimberly A. Martin is a native of Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada.  After graduating from the University of Windsor, obtaining her degree in  Biological Sciences, she pursued her Chiropractic education at Parker  College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas, graduating in 2002.

 Although Dr. Martin's main focus is on family chiropractic care, she  specializes in children, pregnancy, and women's health issues.  She  has received many post educational hours in pediatrics, and  Pre/Postnatal care through the International Chiropractic Pediatric  Association (ICPA).

Dr. Martin has been practicing Chiropractic since 2003. That year, she opened Great Lakes Chiropractic in Maple Grove, working there for 8 years. In 2011, after being home with her children for a short time, she opened Great Lakes Chiropractic in St. Michael/Albertville to be closer to home and educate her community on the benefits of chiropractic. 

 As an experienced Chiropractor, Dr. Martin is committed to spending  quality time with each patient, ensuring they are comfortable and  understand exactly how chiropractic can help them.  Educating parents  on the role that chiropractic care can play in their child's health is also a  huge priority.  Dispelling the myths of chiropractic continues to drive Dr.  Martin in practice, both in the pediatric and adult patient.  Through basic  anatomy and function of the body, her focus and goal is to educate as  many as possible that maintaining the health of your spine is not  something to be thought of as optional.  The health benefits of chiropractic care are far reaching and Dr. Martin strives to educate even the most skeptical person that chiropractic can and will contribute to your well-being and general health.  Give Chiropractic a chance...you won't be disappointed!
