Kelsey Lunt, DC
Kelsey Lunt, DC, is a Rochester, New York native and graduated from Hilton High School in 2005. She proceeded to obtain her Bachelor’s in Science from SUNY Geneseo before applying to graduate school at New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY. Kelsey graduated with honors from NYCC in November 2012 with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree, whereupon she obtained employment with Campanella Chiropractic and Wellness. Kelsey’s desire to be a Chiropractor was sparked by her own back problems, as traditional medicine did not work to relieve her back pain. This resulted in Kelsey seeking alternative methods for treatment of her pain with a Chiropractor, who was able to resolve her back pain with none of the side effects that come with prescription drugs. Her hobbies include spending time outside with her dog, Daisy, as well as reading, being physically active, and spending time with friends.
Doctor Kelsey values soft tissue work above all else, as she believes whole-heartedly that soft tissue injury is too commonly ignored and that patients are not always given the time and tools they need in order to gain maximal health improvement. By combining soft tissue work with the power of the chiropractic adjustment, Kelsey feels patients are able to get better more quickly and stay pain-free longer. In order to fulfill her patient’s needs, she utilizes a combination of unique approaches including, but not limited to: Myofascial Technique, ART, and Graston Technique. Kelsey believes in chiropractic care and what it has to offer and strives to educate her patients on the benefits of regular care and a wellness lifestyle. Ultimately, her goal is to provide an all-encompassing, lasting treatment option focusing on resolving and rehabilitating both soft tissue injury and decreased joint mobility that is cost effective and efficient for patients of all ages and social backgrounds.
