Hello, I’m Dr. Samantha Kennedy! I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and I’m proudly a Kennedy High School alum. I didn’t get far from friends and family when moving to Davenport for chiropractic school. I graduated cum laude from Palmer College with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2012 and moved right back to Cedar Rapids to help the community I know and love. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, I wanted to help my patients even more and took hours and hours of classes to become full body certified in Active Release Technique (2012-2019) , Graston, Trigger Point Dry Needling, and Acupuncture to help patients heal faster. I love soft tissue work because my patients see results faster. Muscle adhesions and joint restrictions can cause you pain, but with the work I do, I typically get the feedback “it hurts so good,” and patients walk out feeling better than they have in months.
Unfortunately I have experienced some of the conditions I treat. I struggled for years with migraines, pain from scoliosis, and poor gut health. Eventually, after a food sensitivity test, chiropractic adjustments, A.R.T., and dry needling, my migraines and inflammation went down and I finally felt healthy again.
When I work hard, I play hard! In my free time I play softball, sand volleyball and attend Cedar Rapids Sport and Social Club events. I love being outside boating, fishing, and hiking. I also enjoy good food, traveling and fitness. I recharge with a good podcast or Netflix binge with my three fur babies—yes, three. I’m an animal lover—including a Shih Tzu, Border Collie mix, and Cane Corso. I’m lucky to have a wonderful husband, five sisters and a great family that share with me an abundance of support and friendship.
