Meet Dr. Kara Yantha

Experiencing the Effects of Chiropractic Care

While studying at McMaster University, Dr. Kara experienced a weightlifting injury that left her unable to move or even put on her socks. Seeking help, she visited a chiropractor for the first time.

Within a couple of treatments, the chiropractor was able to get me fully functioning again.”

This experience sparked her interest in holistic medicine and set her on the path to becoming a chiropractor.

Discovering a Passion for Pediatric and Pregnancy Care

Dr. Kara discovered her passion for pediatric and pregnancy care during her chiropractic schooling at Palmer College of Chiropractic. Working with her first pregnant patient at the student outpatient clinic was an eye-opening experience. She was inspired by “seeing how the body evolves throughout the journey of pregnancy, and then also seeing how chiropractic can help with a smoother delivery.”

She also appreciates that postnatal chiropractic fills in the gaps for women, who often don’t see a healthcare provider for six weeks after giving birth.


Joining the Practice Team

After connecting with Dr. Cathy as a result of meeting her niece, Dr. Kara reached out to Dr. Cathy, they met, and Dr. Kara began shadowing her throughout her chiropractic schooling.

The doctors decided a preceptorship would be the next step to allow Dr. Kara to gain valuable experience at the practice under Dr. Cathy’s supervision and mentorship, leading to Dr. Kara joining the practice as an associate.

A Commitment to Patient Well-being

For Dr. Kara, the most satisfying aspect of her job is making patients feel heard and understood. She strives to create a welcoming environment where patients can openly share their stories and concerns.

“I just love the interactions and the connections with my patients.”

Enjoying an Active Life

When she’s not at the practice, Dr. Kara enjoys going to the gym and weightlifting, hiking trails with her mom or sister, going to different restaurants to explore new cuisines, and spending time with friends. Dr. Kara is also an avid Kitchener Rangers fan!
