On a personal note, Dr. Karin Drummond wanted to become a doctor for as long as she could remember. She loved going to the doctor because they gave her yummy medicine that always made her feel better. But that changed at the tender age of 11 years old. The years of taking that yummy medicine may have helped her feel better, but it was not making her better, it was making her sick. The years of antibiotic prescriptions for common sniffles and colds resulted in IBS so severe that she could not absorb the nutrients from the food she was eating. She went from 110 pounds to 85 pounds. She became so weak that even brushing her hair was exhausting. After a year of this, the medical doctors gave her less than a few months more to live if not resolved. Her uncle, studying to become a chiropractor at the time, encouraged her mom to take Dr. Karin to a chiropractor. Her parents signed paperwork allowing her to be removed from the Hospital (promising they would not sue if she died). After chiropractic and natural remedies, she felt better within a month! Ever since natural remedies and chiropractic have been her passion.
Dr. Karin’s Uncle took her to a seminar designed to teach chiropractors how to explain chiropractic to laypeople. When the speaker said about how the power that made the body heals the body, and how keeping the flow open between the mind and body allowed miracle healing to happen completely resonated with her. She had found her calling.
Fun fact, Dr. Karin found out during her career that her Great Grand Dad’s brother, Dr. Louis Schrank, was a chiropractor. He met and married Gertrude while in Chiropractic College in San Francisco. Drs. Louis and Gertrude Schrank lived in Llano, Texas.
She graduated with distinction from the University of Victoria with a bachelor of science degree. She obtained her four-year doctorate of chiropractic degree at the University of Western States. She moved to her husband’s hometown of Bloomington, Indiana in 2000 and has made it her home. She lives at the edge of Bloomington, in the wooded country, with her husband and two teenage children.
KD, Dr. Karin’s daughter, always helped out in the office, and now is our Business Coordinator. Sam, our office manager, joined Drummond Chiropractic in 2015. Dr. Karin moved Drummond Chiropractic to downtown Bloomington on September 9th, 2019. Dr. Mandi and Dr. Michael McCoy joined her at her new clinic during this time. Dr. Henry joined the team in 2021. Kate, our Front Staff, is our most recent addition. It took years to put together our amazing team, making it the Drummond Difference it is today. The chiropractors and staff all strive to provide a WOW experience. We are proud to be ACE chiropractors (Affordable, Convenient, and Effect). She has been voted her town’s number one chiropractor several times.
Passionate about living well, she keeps up with new research in the health field and practices what she preaches. Her patients have told her for years that she needed to write a book because she is such a great source of information on healthy living. Once she discovered how easy it was to publish a book, she decided to take advantage of this medium to help spread her thoughts on living well. Her first book, Top Seven Ways to Combat the Effects of Sitting, was published in 2015 and was a finalist in the 2016 Best Book Awards in the Health: Diet and Exercise category. She has published a dozen books since then and added a wealth of health information to YouTube, Facebook, and this website. After decades of practicing chiropractic, she still loves being a chiropractor and is passionate about helping others.
