About Dr. McCarthy

Kate McCarthy graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science in Scientific and Technical Communications. Her experience interning with Athletic Medicine at the University of Minnesota sparked her interest in chiropractic, so she then went on to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in San Jose, California, where she earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

Dr. McCarthy has been working in various chiropractic and rehabilitation clinics since 2011. While at the University of Minnesota, Dr. McCarthy worked in the Athletic Medicine department, where she rehabilitated the Division 1 athletes and ensured that they returned to play rapidly. She was selected for a chiropractic clerkship at the Las Vegas VA and was fortunate to treat a wide patient demographic with unique conditions. In addition to her rehabilitation and medical experience, she is also a Certified Personal Trainer.

Dr. McCarthy enjoys working with active populations as well as perinatal women and kids, and she is pursuing further training in rehabilitation and pregnancy care.
