Dr. Kate Higgins, **Provisionally Licensed
Dr. Kate Higgins graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic (Davenport, Iowa) in 2021. Prior to graduating, Dr. Higgins was involved with the Student Canadian Club and served on the Executive Committee. In addition, she was a player on the Women’s Rugby team where she also served on the Executive Committee.
Dr. Higgins chose to become a chiropractor so that she could be an active participant in the patients’ healing process and encourage her patients to be active in their health care, know their bodies, improve their motion, and live to their fullest potential.
Dr. Higgins believes in the body’s ability to naturally heal and adapt, and that chiropractic can help give the body the needed push in the right direction to start that process. Dr. Higgins encourages her patients to make small changes to their daily routines – whether it’s improving mobility of joints, adding a little activity to their day, or making healthy changes in their diets. Her philosophy is that it’s the littlest things in life that go the longest way!
Dr. Higgins primary practice techniques include Thompson, Diversified and Activator. Given the Clinics’ inter-professional collaborative environment, Dr. Higgins regularly incorporates soft tissue therapy and rehabilitation where necessary when dealing with musculoskeletal (MSK) health issues, with the Clinics professional team of physiotherapists and registered massage therapists.
Dr. Higgins is passionate about giving back to her profession and the community. She is a member of the Ontario Chiropractic Association and the Canadian Chiropractic Association. In addition, Dr. Higgins hopes to help coach youth hockey and Timbits soccer as sports begin gearing up again.
When not in practice, Dr. Higgins enjoys finding new coffee shops and craft breweries, gardening, spending time with family, a variety of sports such as hockey and rugby, hiking, or just being outside!

Accommodations are temporary and as soon as practicable, new graduates who have been exempted from a requirement will complete them.
