Dr. Kathryn Kortering, B.S., D.C.
Dr. Kathie Kortering is a Chiropractor with over 25 years’ experience. She is the treating Chiropractic Physician at Total Care Injury and Pain Centers at their Gonzales location working for Dr. Jay Perniciaro.
She was born and raised in Michigan, graduated from University of Miami (Florida) with a degree in Biology in 1983, in 1991 received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University. She was the owner and sole practitioner of Kortering Chiropractic in Mammoth Lakes, California for 20 years. She moved back to Michigan for a few years in 2008, and moved to Louisiana in 2014.
As a chiropractor, she specializes in detecting and correcting interference within the nervous system; the body’s master control system.  The “adjustment” reduces nerve interference which restores energy to every cell, tissue and organ in the body.  She may also address nutrition, diet change, exercise and lifestyle modifications to help nourish and energize the body to heal itself naturally. She uses a caring and motivational approach when treating her patients and prides herself in educating patients about how to stay out of pain and prevent injury.
Dr. Kathie is an avid runner, and participates in 5k and 10k races or an occasional triathlon or half marathon.  Water has always been an integral part of her life.  Growing up just four miles from Lake Michigan, she was swimming, fishing or catching freshwater crawfish. At University of Miami she worked as a lifeguard and a safety diver for a dive shop in West Palm Beach, catching lobster and spear fishing for Grouper, Snapper and riding on sharks and turtles.  Mammoth Lakes, California is in the Sierra Mountains and home to one of the largest ski resorts in the country.  The lakes and streams are home to several species of trout and wildlife is abundant in the area. She is a compassionate supporter of environmental campaigns, and the mother of two daughters. Her oldest is a recent graduate from Michigan State University, and will be heading to Rwanda in September for her position as a teacher in the Peace Corps. Her youngest is a junior at Dutchtown High School, and a valuable member of the swim team.
Dr. Kathie is a new member of the East Ascension Sportsman league and will be speaking on the topic of “Repetitive Motion”.  Repetitive motion injuries, also called repetitive stress injuries, are temporary or permanent injuries to muscles, nerves, ligaments, and tendons caused by doing the same motion over and over again.
