CORE Chiropractic proudly announced the recent addition of Dr. Amanda Keppel to the staff. After a lifetime of sports in Springfield, Pennsylvania, where she was born and raised, she experienced a back injury and visited her mother’s chiropractor as a teenager. The doctor genuinely listened to her and was interested in more than just her current pain.
“That’s something that stuck with me, and I really got interested in chiropractic at that point,” Dr. Keppel said.
That visit made a significant impact on her, but it wasn’t until her junior year of college that she decided to revisit the idea of chiropractic. The industry was intimidating at first, and she initially studied business management but ultimately determined she wasn’t passionate about it and followed her first instincts after completing her degree.
To ensure it was her passion, Dr. Keppel worked as a chiropractor’s assistant (CA) for a year after graduation and decided that chiropractic was the career path she wanted to take. She moved to Houston to attend Texas Chiropractic College in 2019 and graduated as the salutatorian of the 2022 class, along with receiving multiple clinical awards.
“As doctors, we have the ability to use our hands to aid in the body’s recovery process, so we can assist in a patient’s overall wellness by keeping them feeling at their best,” Dr. Keppel said.
After graduation, Dr. Keppel settled outside Houston with her significant other, Nick, and their two dogs, Lacey and Kali. In her spare time, she enjoys exploring the city for new places to eat and spending time outside playing sand volleyball or taking in a sports game.
Houston’s Best Chiropractor
With her degree secured, Dr. Keppel signed on with Houston’s best chiropractic office, CORE Chiropractic. The company was named the city’s best chiropractor in the Houston Chronicle’s 2022 “Best of the Best” list. Though the competition was fierce, CORE Chiropractic focuses on the patients, overall health, and detailed explanations every step of the process.
Now a practicing female chiropractor in Houston, Dr. Keppel sees patients at the Galleria area CORE Chiropractic location. From the consultation to the examination and any necessary x-rays, Dr. Keppel helps patients identify the problem and develop a treatment plan. Her extended training and time as a CA make her a better chiropractor and able to offer more comprehensive treatment to her patients by viewing issues from multiple perspectives.
“I’m super glad that I was able to be also a CA at some point in my life, and now the doctor,” Dr. Keppel said. “Because they’re very different perspectives, and they get different sides of the patient. So, I’m really glad that I was able to get that opportunity as well.”
