Kirsten Petersen, DC
Chiropractic Physician

Dr. Kirsten Petersen loves to be a chiropractor. Her enthusiasm, balanced by her calming nature, brings a presence to her treatment that translates into great results for her patients. Getting to the root of your pain or dysfunction is key for Dr. Kirsten, and after a detailed assessment of your frame and your needs, she will design a custom care plan that is based on your individual goals and priorities. She uses a range of gentle yet effective adjusting techniques, including diversified, low-force, instrument-assisted and drop table. Along with learning from her patients each and every day, Dr. Petersen is always acquiring new modalities, and is certified in Graston technique, trained in Craniosacral therapy, and integrates myofascial release and functional nutrition. Along with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the University of Western States, she has a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences from Cornell University, and recognizes the importance of our lifestyle choices in our healing picture. She loves the diversity of lifestyles that exists in our community, and assists her patients in achieving their own definition of optimal performance, whether that means walking their dog or running a marathon. After practicing in Portland, OR for 8 years, Dr. Petersen is thrilled to have now found her home in Asheville. She loves exploring the amazing mountains and rivers, bluegrass music, nice people and good food in this perfect little corner of the world.
