Dr. Kristen McClean has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Manitoba and is a graduate of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. She has been practising chiropractic since 2000, and uses a variety of muscle therapy techniques including Active Release Therapy®, Graston Technique®, Fascial Manipulation®, and Shockwave Therapy. Since she started her career, Dr. Kristen has helped hundreds of people achieve their optimum health potential utilizing chiropractic care, decompression therapy, custom orthotics, and compression socks/garments.
She has been working with us here in Okotoks since 2012 and is well known in the community for her respectful and compassionate treatment of all of her patients. She has experience in the care and treatment of an extensive number of conditions and injuries, such as headaches, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, TMJ, to name a few. She can also work on any joint of the body causing you pain (TMJ, shoulders, elbows, wrists, thumbs, knees, ankles, feet), and will not hesitate to recommend custom orthotics and/or compression socks if she believes they will help alleviate her patients' recurring pain. Dr. Kristen believes that health is not just about being symptom-free; health is about feeling young, being active and having lots of energy!
When not in the office, Dr. Kristen can be found enjoying all types of outdoor activities, especially horseback riding, tennis and downhill skiing and hiking with her husband, Mike. She also really enjoys squash, floor hockey, golf, reading, travelling and playing with her dogs, Callie and Max. She has been involved in sports since an early age which include competitive swimming, show jumping and long-distance running. Loving sports, she understands that injuries can be frustrating, so she strives to get her patients back to what they love to do as quickly as possible.

"I’ve been seeing Dr McLean for years and I’ve never had a bad experience with her. She’s personable and incredibly well-versed in all the things to do with the skeletal system. The front-end staff is friendly and efficient, and Savannah the masseuse is an absolute treasure. I’ve had such positive experiences here that my daughters and my husband have all become patients!"
