Dr. Kristen Iman, DC, CACCP
A Salisbury native, Dr. Kristen Iman is the owner of Iman Family Chiropractic and Wellness. After graduation from Wicomico High School in 2000, Dr. Iman completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a minor in Exercise Science from Salisbury University in 2004. She then went on and received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College in 2009. It only seemed natural for her to obtain a degree in Chiropractic. Dr. Iman has worked in a Chiropractic office all through high school and college (the same office she now practices in!). Her mom, Peggy Iman has worked for a Chiropractor since Dr. Iman was 4 years old! Chiropractic has changed her life and she has made it her passion to change the lives of others through chiropractic!
As an intern at NYCC Dr. Iman wanted to see what it was like to live near the city, so she moved down to Long Island. Being born and raised in Salisbury, MD you can imagine what a big change that was! She gained a lot of experience working with different populations. Dr. Iman provided chiropractic care to a medically underserved geriatric population at the local Salvation Army. Managed chiropractic care for patients receiving treatment for mental illness and chemical abuse at the Central Nassau Guidance and Counseling Services. Administered chiropractic services for students, staff and faculty at SUNY Farmingdale’s on-campus multidisciplinary facility as well as SUNY Stony Brooke.
Dr. Iman is a board certified Pediatric Chiropractor. She has completed over 220 post-doctoral class room hours specifically in pediatric, pregnancy and family wellness care. She is also certified by the International Pediatric Association in the Webster Technique (2010 then again in 2018)! The love of caring for babies and pregnant mom's led Dr. Iman to pursue a certification to become a Doula. This additional training has given her a few more tricks to help her pregnant patients in the office.
Dr. Iman continues to expand her knowledge and learn to help others. Due to her own struggles to become a parent she has discovered the world of chiropractic and in-fertility. Dr. Iman has obtained the knowledge to help couples create health for themselves utilizing a specific 120 day protocol with 8 essentials. Healthy couples create healthy babies so creating healthy couples is her goal! In addition to that approach, Dr. Iman is also a Mercier Therapy Practitioner, a technique discussed a bit further under the fertility tab!
When Dr. Iman is not in the office she enjoys spending time with her family, especially her nieces and nephew and her two energetic dogs! In the warm months you will find Dr. Iman at Assateague Island with her husband and their four-legged kids on the beach or on her stand up paddle board.
