Krista King

 

Krista graduated from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and a Masters of Chiropractic. As a keen long distance runner and triathlete, Krista has first hand experience of the advantages of chiropractic care, noting significantly fewer sporting injuries, decreased healing time for those she has had, and decreased joint and muscle pains. Krista has personal best times of 3hrs09 in the Canberra marathon, 1hr28 in the SMH half marathon and completed her first ironman triathlon in 10hrs46 at Port Macquarie. She is a firm believer in chiropractic as a lifestyle and has seen the benefits to people from all walks of life, no matter their age, sex, occupation or body type.

In 2009 Krista had the privilege of treating international competitors at the Sydney World Masters Games across a variety of sports. In 2011 Krista published a paper alongside Brent Gordon and Henry Pollard on Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy, a condition that involves spinal cord damage due to arthritic changes in the neck. Previously, she was also employed by Macquarie University to assist in teaching Chiropractic students. Krista is currently training to compete in the Busselton Ironman in December 2015 (3.8km swim, 180km bike, 42km run). Krista is available at the Crows Nest office on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings and Tuesday afternoon.
