What to Expect

Board Certified

Dr. Kari has earned her Diplomate in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (DICCP). Only doctors with the DICCP credential have graduated from the 3 year post-graduate program and shown proficiency in the knowledge, competency, and skills expected of a chiropractor specializing in pediatrics and pregnancy. Dr. Kari is the only chiropractor in Altoona with this credential.

The Diplomate in Clinical Chiropractic Pediatrics (DICCP) is a board certified specialty in chiropractic developed and established by the International Chiropractic Association Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics. The DICCP program includes more than 320 classroom hours and takes 3 years to complete. The curriculum is structured and balances academic knowledge with clinical applications. Testing is done at the end of year one to determine eligibility to continue on to the next level and at the end of year three to determine eligibility to sit for the Board Certification Examination. The Board Certification Examination is conducted by the International College of Chiropractic Pediatrics. The Testing Board for the DICCP includes both written and oral tests.

Dr. Kari continues to stay current on the most recent research and techniques in pediatric and prenatal chiropractic care through continuing education opportunities across the country throughout the year. As a DICCP, she completes well above the minimum 20 hours of continuing education to maintain her credentials each year and attends the International Chiropractic Association Pediatrics Conference annually. As an expert in the field of pregnancy and pediatrics, Dr. Kari teaches continuing education classes for other chiropractors through Palmer College of Chiropractic and the Iowa Chiropractic Society.
