A native to the West, immigrating from Alberta, Canada, is Dr. Kyara Finney. Dr. Finney graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA, and has been practicing Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic since 2021. She was an associate for the founder of the Advanced HIO Knee Chest Upper Cervical technique, Dr. Steven Simmons in Michigan, and was certified in Blair Upper Cervical technique in 2020 under Dr. Todd Hubbard.
Dr. Finney loves helping patients who suffer from Migraines, Depression, Anxiety, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Seizures, Post-Concussion Syndromes, unexplainable debilitating pain, and so much more. She also cares for pregnant women and babies because she believes a well-functioning nervous system is optimal for the development of both mother and child.
The passion that Dr. Finney holds for her care and her patients stems from her past of dealing with severe unexplainable pain at a young age after a horse accident that left her with a knockout concussion. She had tried every avenue of care and even tried traditional Chiropractic, but nobody was able to help or had any answers. Three years of this went by and Dr. Finney was ready to give up. Thankfully, a friend had told her to see an Upper Cervical Chiropractor and by no stretch of the imagination, she left that office pain-free after her first adjustment and knew that this was her calling. Now, Dr. Finney searches for those that deal with these debilitating conditions to not just only help restore normal nervous system function but to restore hope to those that don’t have the answers yet.
Dr. Finney spends most of her time with her wonderful, caring husband, Dr. Jonathan Finney, and their two dogs, Nelly and Duke. She loves educating people on non-toxic lifestyles, making delicious and nutritious recipes, yoga, CrossFit, camping, hiking, horses, and really everything outdoors.
I was deemed with so many health issues as I was growing up; EVERYTHING under the sun from hormonal imbalances/irregular cycles to being chronically sick with strep throat & tonsilitis. I did not grow up with chiropractic care being implemented when I was younger, yet we had our horses adjusted regularly during the rodeo season. My parents, as many people do, had believed that chiropractic was specifically for neck and back pain, but not for other health issues like immunity or healthy growth/development.
So it wasn’t until I was 16 and had a major horse accident where I ended up getting a severe concussion and whiplash that I started looking for chiropractic care because I ended up in severe pain EVERYWHERE. With that being said, I was suffering from the traditional post-concussion-like symptoms that for about 3 months following, however nothing “too major” UNTIL 6 months after when my TMJ flared up (which it felt like I broke my jaw). Another 6 months following that, I started having rib pain, low back pain, and severe neck pain. This all led to my spine essentially being twisted from “head-to-toe” and where I felt it most, was my achilles tendon; it felt like it was so tight, that it was going to tear at any given moment. This went on for years and I tried literally everything; I was ready to cut my leg off.
Until my friend with MS told me about an upper cervical chiropractor back in Alberta, Canada.
Well long story short, I left his office after my first adjustment and was pain-free for the first time in a long time, where it felt like I was walking straight again! So I went for a run that night, and I cried because after 4 long years filled with excruciating pain, I wasn’t in pain anymore.
After that I made up my mind and wanted to go to school to become an upper cervical chiropractor. I wanted to give people the hope I was given after so many years of suffering. I encourage others to try upper cervical chiropractic for many reasons but to ultimately get their body to function optimally and to be able to live your best life for as long you can!
