Dr. Kristin Weikel, Chiropractor and Exercise Physiologist, is the owner of FitSpine Chiropractic, PLLC and part of the I Am Total Wellness Studios team. Applying her background in functional training and expertise in human biomechanics, Dr. Weikel uses a multi-faceted, patient-focused approach to care.
Born and raised in San Antonio, Dr. Weikel was subject to acute episodes of childhood neck pain. Having not been exposed to chiropractic care growing up, she believes “chiropractic found me”.
As a student-athlete on full academic scholarship, she obtained her bachelor’s degree from Texas State University before moving to Houston to pursue a career in exercise physiology. Working alongside a chiropractor, it was there that she found her calling in chiropractic. Dr. Weikel graduated from Texas Chiropractic College in 2015 with a Bachelor of Human Biology and Doctorate of Chiropractic. During her education, Dr. Weikel was a member of the honor society Omega Psi and a student tutor to her peers. She gained clinical experience in the treatment of faculty at the University of Houston – Clear Lake, Rice University athletes, and domestic violence survivors at The Bridge Over Troubled Waters.
With her passion for fitness and her belief in the body’s ability to heal itself, Dr. Weikel specializes in gentle and effective patient-centered chiropractic care. Her areas of expertise include: traditional and low-force adjustments to the spine and extremities, neurokinetic therapy, manual and instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, functional and kinesiotaping, scar release, sinus relief, pre/perinatal care, and pediatrics.
In her free time Dr. Weikel enjoys hiking the many trails of Austin with her 2 dogs, floating the river, and spending time with family. Her motto is “A fit spine is the key to aging gracefully!”
