dr richardsKatrina M. Mah, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Hello, my name is Dr. Katrina Mah. In order to better understand chiropractic and its importance to your health, I feel it is necessary that you learn a little bit about who I am, where I have come from, and the events that have shaped me into the practitioner that I am today.

I am a native of Canada, but have lived in the States, since 2002. I obtained both my bachelor’s degree in Biology and Doctorate from Life University in Marietta, GA. I am currently an associate Chiropractor at Colonial Heights Chiropractic and Wellness Center, one of five offices of Chiropractic Centers of Virginia. I am a member of the Unified Virginia Chiropractic Association (VCA), and certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.

At a very young age I knew that I wanted to become a Doctor of Chiropractic, however, my true passion for the profession was ignited when I worked for a Chiropractor two summers prior to high school graduation. The most fascinating patients to me were the ones who were coming in for wellness. Numerous athletes were under chiropractic care for injury prevention and peak performance, and various other patients sought care to reach their health goals and improve quality of life. Their connection with chiropractic was optimal health, rather than relief from aches and pains.

My understanding of chiropractic up until that point was that “it could help reduce and or eliminate one’s pain, through conservative management (no drugs or surgery),” and I loved that …BUT it was so exciting to discover that there was even more to the chiropractic story! This revelation confirmed for me that my decision to become a Chiropractor was without a doubt, the right one. I feel honored every day that patients allow me to be a part of their commitment to lead more healthy, quality lives!

It is my responsibility to share with you the chiropractic lifestyle and be an example for you. I am a believer in chiropractic hugely due to my first hand experience as a patient myself. Because of Chiropractic, I am a strong, healthy, active, and happy individual, committed to care for lifetime wellness.

Every day my passion grows from meeting extraordinary individuals and families. I take a lot of pride in making my patients feel that they can count on me no matter what challenges they may be facing. It is my hope that you don’t give up hope; don’t give up on yourself. Life is too short to be further minimized by sickness and suffering, forcing you to miss out on a healthy, happy life.

It is time to say goodbye to poor health and ill health related expenses, while you raise your wellness to an exciting new level! I look forward to getting to know each and every patient and their families, and welcoming them into my chiropractic family!
