"My weekly running kilometers were taking a toll on my feet, knees and legs. Dr. Krista Klawitter was my fifth attempt at finding a professional that could help me. Being a runner herself she understood my passion for running. Her expertise and care was just what I needed. At 62 years young I not only completed a full marathon (42.2km) in the fall - I also completed the Dopey Challenge two months later which was a total of 78.3km over 4 days! Newcastle Family Chiropractic you simply are the best!

"About 15 months ago walking into downtown Newcastle was a painful and slow walk. Periodically I had to lift a leg up to give temporary relief from the knee pain. Several years ago I had success with acupuncture and felt it was time to get that kind of treatment again. The treatments by Dr. Krista did help and she suggested a monthly treatment as proactive protection. Our family Autumn get-away is located close to Barry's Bay and a highlight of that weekend is a group climb up "the mountain". In the recent past, this climb has been impossible due to the steep climb involved. This year, I made it to the top, a tad breathless, but I made it. The knee was tired and sore back once we were down at the bottom of the hill, but had recovered by dinner time. Walks downtown are common and pain-free for me nowadays, thank you Newcastle Family Chiropractic!"

She is one of the most professional, caring and genuinely empathetic health care providers I have worked with. Her treatments are effective and have successfully aided with my pain management and healing. I strongly recommend Dr. Klawitter to any individual seeking effective chiropractic treatments, the highest level of professionalism and a truly caring healthcare provider."
