Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Carrie Gingerich is new to the area of State College and Pennsylvania, but falling in love with it more and more each day. Before taking on the 4-year journey of receiving her doctorate degree, she was back in her birth state of Illinois at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. During her 4 years in undergrad, she earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Biological Science with a focus on Pre-Chiropractic and a minor in chemistry. She was also a part of the university’s cheerleading squad, taking part in many events, both athletic and campus related. She became a graduate in 2021 from Palmer College of Chiropractic Main Campus located in Davenport, IA.
Outside of regular school hours and required classes, she took the time to attend seminars and modules to better advance her knowledge and skills in a multitude of areas, such as Mally’s Upper and Lower Extremities. She is also a part of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association), with plans to become “Webster Technique Certified”. Webster’s Techinque is a sacral analysis and diversified adjustment to better help expecting mothers have an easier and more comfortable birthing process. Following that certification, she plans to take on the advanced “Perinatal Certification” to better equip her skills to help women both currently pregnant, postpartum, and their new little ones.
When she is not helping those around her you can find Dr. Carrie at home cuddling her dog, Jax. She can also be found riding 4 wheelers and spending time at camp, or spending time with her family and fiancé Jesse, who is a fellow Chiropractor in the area himself. She is an avid athlete who still enjoys tumbling when she can, goes to the gym and loves playing in various volleyball and softball leagues when possible.
She’s honored to now be a part of this community and team, and is going to do everything in her power to serve it well.
Dr. Carrie says, “I’ve seen first hand how quickly life can be taken from us. I’ve been givein this chance to be able to wake up every day, live life, and to help others. If I can help patients live even a little bit of a healither and happier life then I’m living the right purpose.”
