Meet Dr. Katherine Flesia

Dr FlesiaOne of the first things you’ll notice about Dr. Katherine Flesia is her passion for chiropractic. Knowing what she does matters for her patients’ health and wellness is what sustains her. So much so that she doesn’t know if she’ll ever retire!

Just how powerful the nervous system and spine are to the healing process is a message people need to hear. This truth enabled Dr. Flesia to find her purpose early in life. She’s been very fortunate to be able to educate others about this critical, life-saving health principle.

Why Chiropractic?

Dr. Flesia became interested in chiropractic as a result of severe menstrual problems in her teens. The issue became so debilitating she was placed on the pain-killer, Darvon. That did nothing to control the pain, and more invasive procedures were being considered when she found chiropractic.

Through a conversation, she learned a little about how chiropractic worked with the nervous system. She also learned that when the spine loses its ability to move correctly, it can affect how nerves work. Thinking this could possibly be the reason for her suffering, she decided to have her spine checked by a chiropractor trained in this area.

The rest is history! At the age of 18, she went through a care program for about six months. Chiropractic not only found her problem, it corrected the cause of it, as well!

Dr. Flesia became so excited about what this knowledge can do for others that she became a Doctor of Chiropractic. In her 30+ years of practice, she has seen many miracles happen for others, thanks to chiropractic care. Even people who have suffered for years with many types of illness, sickness and decay can benefit.

An Education in Chiropractic and More

Dr. Flesia earned her Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College in 1974. She’s very proud of the fact that Palmer is the birthplace of chiropractic; established in 1895.

Throughout her many years of practice, she has seen lots of changes in the profession. What has never changed is her commitment to put her patients’ health, wellness and education first.

Experience Counts

A man came in complaining of a muscle strain in his ribs after being hit by a grocery cart. After speaking with him at length, Dr. Flesia decided to do an x-ray of the area. The film showed a grapefruit-sized tumor under his rib.

He was immediately scheduled for surgery, and had a successful outcome. His doctors told him if the fast-growing tumor had not been found, he would have died within three weeks.

The Practice Today

The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Thomas Edison

These words are foundational to our practice. Educating her patients so they can make the best choices for their health is one of Dr. Flesia’s passions.

Outside of the Practice

Dr. Flesia enjoys hiking with her golden retriever, biking, reading and spending time with horses. Growing up on a hobby farm in Minnesota gave her a deep love of the earth and animals.
