Hi! My name is Dr. Ashley Thompson and I was born and raised in Wichita, KS. I’ve been helping people achieve better health and wellness through chiropractic since I graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in 2006.
I first encountered chiropractic care when I was 14. I had been extremely active in sports and began having lower back pain that was preventing me from playing basketball. After several visits to a good chiropractor, my pain got better and I was back on the courts. A few years later, however, I began having severe headaches. I literally had a headache from the time I got up in the morning, to the time I went to bed. For three months I followed the mainstream medical approach; I was given a gamut of tests (to no avail) and put on pain pills. Although the medication helped some, it wasn’t until I went back to my chiropractor that I began feeling some real relief. Within several weeks of receiving regular adjustments, I went from having a headache every day to having one just occasionally. It was at that time that I decided I wanted to be a chiropractor.
As I went through school, I enjoyed learning about the natural, holistic approach to health and medicine and how I could help others. I love treating patients of all ages with various health goals but have a special passion for pregnancy and children. I am certified through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in the Webster Technique, a specific technique used for pregnant women. I have also received my pediatric certification through the ICPA. As a mother myself, I really enjoy meeting a new baby after I have worked with their mom throughout her pregnancy.
My husband Brandon and I have two kids: Joscelyn is 6 and Blake is 4. We love spending family time together at the lake and watching KU and WSU basketball.
I can be found at Reflection Ridge Chiropractic, right next to Old Chicago in Northwest Wichita. To schedule an appointment please call (316) 721-3003.
