Kinesiology Specialist Joins Aery Chiropractic
Kinesiology Specialist April Kerr Roscher brings a wealth of knowledge and a history of compassionate care to Aery Chiropractic.
April Kerr Roscher, a doctor of chiropractic and former nurse, was in Highlands for a weekend to celebrate her sister’s birthday at Old Edwards Inn’s spa when she had an “aha” moment. She began talking to people at the inn about what it was like to live in Highlands.
“They all talked about how they loved the Highlands area … a great place to raise kids,” said Dr. Roscher. “Suddenly, I had a revelation that I was supposed to make this giant leap. I called my husband and said, ‘I think we’re supposed to move to Highlands.’”
Dr. Roscher had established for the last six years a chiropractic, kinesiology, and nutritional assessment practice in Atlanta.
However, she reached out to Sue Aery, D.C., Aery Chiropractic & Acupuncture in Highlands, to offer her complementary skills that focus on kinesiology, which is essentially a natural health care approach that combines muscle monitoring with the principles of Chinese medicine.
Dr. Roscher began in July establishing a patient base Fridays through Sundays every other week at Aery Chiropractic.
“Dr. April Roscher has already been a great addition,” said Dr. Aery. “Her extensive professional background as a nurse, chiropractor, and clinical kinesiologist will further diversify our offerings in the alternative health care model.”
“My goal is to build a clientele and relocate to Highlands full-time with my husband and four-year-old daughter, Addyson,” said Dr. Roscher.
She explained that an interest in chiropractic and kinesiology pulled her away from nursing due to her own health struggles.
“I was suffering from many issues and kinesiology changed the trajectory of my life. I am healthier at 37 than I was at 22.
“Clinical kinesiology is a little bit of a lost art. It is a comprehensive approach to treating the body through the use of muscle testing to address chemical, structural, and emotional imbalances. It is helpful treating various autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue syndrome, mold exposure, and various gastrointestinal disorders.”
She has already correlated the need for disc decompression and fascia work on the golfers that Highlands attracts.
