Kelly Lesemann

Kelly Lesemann

Owner
Chiropractic Physician

Kelly, originally from the St. Louis area, moved to Morris in 2010.  She graduated from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana with a bachelors in Kinesiology.  She then went on to attend Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO.  While there she earned her Doctorate in Chiropractic as well as her masters degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation.  Not only does she use traditional chiropractic techniques, but is certified to provide other modalities such as acupuncture, Active Release Technique and class IV laser therapy.  Kelly takes a different approach to chiropractic looking at how the body moves and functions as a whole as opposed to treating just the symptoms.
