Dr. Keirstyn Moran
Dr. Keirstyn Moran completed her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2017, at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Dr. Moran was inspired to become a Chiropractor through dancing competitively for 14 years in her youth and dealing with injuries. During her undergraduate degree at the University of Ottawa obtaining her Bachelor of Human Kinetics (Hons), she ran varsity cross-country and track. Her injuries forced her to cross train by swimming and cycling which led her to a sport she now participates in, racing Triathlons. Dr. Moran is passionate about continuing education and providing evidence based treatment. Her philosophy is educate each patient so they can actively part take in their rehab and ultimately feel in control of their own health and wellness, despite needing a professionals help from time to time. She believes that collaboration between health care professionals is important in order for the patient to receive optimal results. Her treatments include a combination of education, mobilizations/adjustments of the spine and joints, rehabilitation exercises, modalities, taping techniques, and soft tissue techniques. In her free time, she is usually training in swimming, cycling and running for her up coming Triathlons or playing a variety of sports. She spends lots of quality time with friends, family and the cutest puppy in the world, her dog Nala.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I will always take the time to make sure every one of my patients feels important and heard. I believe there are no 'stupid' questions, and pain is never ' just in your head.' I am very meticulous about time, but will always find a way to make time for anyone who needs me. All of my patients will feel like they have learned something when they come to me and that they have a better understanding of how their body works. I believe this will motivate them to really take charge and allow them to be more preventative with their health.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
1. Concussion 2. Upper Cross Syndrome ( working on posture for those who sit at a desk for hours on end, daily). 3. Ankle
What are you proud of in your practice?
I have worked really hard to get where I am in order to provide the best possible care for patients. I will always do my best to educate them about what I am doing, and why, and how they play a role in their wellness. I believe that all health care providers should work together as a team to allow for faster and better results for the patient. I will always find a way to improve the patients condition, even if that means referring to another professional if I am unable to find results. It is always about the patient and making sure they feel their absolute best.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy any case where the individual is motivated about their own wellness and improving themselves. It makes a case more enjoyable when it feels like you are really working together as a team to get a better result.
