Community Highlights: Meet Karley McCloskey of ChiroPlus- Karley McCloskey

Today we’d like to introduce you to Karley McCloskey. 

Hi Karley, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
I am a Louisiana native relocated to San Diego (Imperial Beach) due to my husband’s job in the Navy. I am a chiropractor specializing in sports injuries and manual therapy. My interest in chiropractic began during my time as a track and field athlete at the University of Houston. I was always amazed by the human body and knew I wanted to work in a field that promoted health and wellness, as well as injury rehabilitation and resolution. After working for an amazing chiropractor in Pacific Beach (shout out to Dr. Liz Farrell at Pacific Wellness), I opened up shop in my own neighborhood of Imperial Beach. Imperial Beach is such a hidden gem in the greater San Diego area and I saw a need for my unique approach to chiropractic care. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Moving across the country in the middle of a pandemic definitely came with its challenges, as well as transitioning from working for a large, well-established company in Houston, TX to being a small business owner in IB. Taking a leap and trusting yourself and your skills can be difficult, but I’m so proud of myself for sticking with it. Taking care of the amazing community of Imperial Beach makes all the struggles worth it. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
I am a chiropractor specializing in sports injuries and manual therapy as well as general wellness care. I take a unique approach to chiropractic care by combining manual therapy, chiropractic spinal manipulation, and prescribed corrective exercises to make lasting changes for my patients. Each visit is completely individualized to each patient and will last anywhere between 30 minutes to one hour of complete one-on-one care. I am a one-woman show. I am the doctor, the receptionist, the social media manager, event coordinator, and janitor. I have treated professional athletes, expecting mothers, grandparents, active-duty military, and veterans. I am passionate about educating patients on how their bodies should move and how to prevent further injuries so they don’t have to rely on me to feel good. I believe the ultimate freedom comes in the form of movement.
