Dr. Kristine Maggs, D.C.
Dr. Maggs is a provider and owner of Active Spine and Sport. She attended the University of Western Ontario for Kinesiology and then went on to National College of Chiropractic in Chicago where she graduated in 1995 and has been in practice for 20 years in Virginia.
Dr. Maggs is "Level III medical" certified in the TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) which is the highest certification possible. This allows her to assess patients for dysfunctional movements using the SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment) and quickly pinpoint where their form is breaking down. For example, an elbow problem may be stemming from faulty movement in the shoulder, a foot pain may be caused by poor motor control in the hip etc. At the time of this writing, she is one of only 2 providers in Virginia to attain this level of certification.
As an Active Release Techniques provider, she is also full body certified in ART.
Dr. Maggs grew up a runner and figure skater and is still an avid runner. She has completed multiple marathons, half Ironman triathlons and 4 full Ironman triathlons. A large portion of her practice is devoted to runners and athletes.
Dr. Maggs has also been practicing acupuncture for 15 years and dry needling for 3 years and enjoys the wide range of conditions she has had the pleasure to treat. She finds the combination of chiropractic, ART, dry needling, movement assessment, rehabilitation and acupuncture gives her the ability to reach out to more people.
She has been part of the team of ART doctors at many marathons, triathlons and also at Ironman in Lake Placid where she has provided on-site care for the athletes.
