As the seventh of eight children, Kim Osborne must have seen her fair share of bumps and bruises. Growing up with many siblings may have contributed to her decision to earn a Bachelor of Science degree with a pre-med emphasis. But nothing could have prepared her for the serious illness her third child experienced shortly after she was born. After an unsuccessful attempt to treat her daughter's condition with traditional medicine, Osborne turned to a local chiropractor. She was on the road to health within a few visits and Osborne has made it her life's mission to help others experience the same healing. Now a chiropractic physician certified in family practice, Kim Osborne, DC, has also received specialized training in acupuncture, botanical medicine, and women's health to better care for her patients.
Dr. Osborne leads the staff at Rockford Wellness & Diagnostic Center in performing advanced diagnostic testing and conservative treatments that focus on preventing disease by seeking out the underlying causes. She uses the low-force Activator Methods adjusting instrument to deliver gentle chiropractic care. Dr. Osborne can analyze saliva to reveal the potential effectiveness of bioidentical hormone therapy or evaluate hair samples to determine heavy-metal toxicity. She also combats the effects of aging and promotes physical healing by saturating bodily tissues with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
