Did you know? More women than ever before are joining the Chiropractic profession. In fact, in a field that was once almost completely male-dominated, some of today’s Chiropractic graduating classes are nearly a 50-50 male/female split.
On this International Women’s Day, Foot Levelers honors women the world over, with a special nod to those women Chiropractors who have dedicated their careers to helping patients lead healthier, happier lives. Here are just a FEW of the women DCs who have, or are, shaping the profession, many of whom we’re proud to call “partner.”

More from Dr. Kris Down Under!
It is my second speaking event of the Australian tour and tonight we were at the Atlantis Restaurant located in New Ryde. It was a great evening with more than 20 doctors in attendance to learn about women’s wellness. Some of the docs were those that I met at the CCA event the day before. It was an excellent chance for us to discuss more the popular women’s health topics in greater detail and focus on some of the biomechanical factors of pain.
Prior to my lecture I was beginning to feel as though I really needed to be adjusted as the travel impacts were starting to kick in, and across the street from where we were located there just happened to be a Chiropractic office with an open time slot! Dr. Top Kim from Riverside Chiropractic took excellent care of me and sent me well on my way before my lecture! I had a nice conversation with Dr. Kim about his love for the Chiropractic profession and different treatments he uses in his office. A huge thank you to both Dr. Kim and Dr. Fiona Plant!
As presentation day two concludes, I am now gearing up for presentation day three…Melbourne here we come!
