Kevin K. Haussler

DVM, DC, PhD

Dr. Haussler graduated from The Ohio State University, College of Veterinary Medicine, and completed a small animal internship in Sacramento, California. To further his training in the conservative management of spinal-related disorders, he completed a certification program in human training at Palmer College of Chiropractic-West. He attended the University of California-Davis and attained a PhD focused on spinal pathology and pelvic biomechanics in Thoroughbred racehorses.

Post-doctorate training involved the evaluation of in-vivo spinal kinematics in horses at Cornell University. While at Cornell, Dr. Haussler directed the newly formed Integrative Medicine Service which provided chiropractic, acupuncture, and physical therapy services to both small and large animals. He is an Associate Professor at the Orthopaedic Research Center at Colorado State University and is involved in teaching, clinical duties, and research into the objective assessment of musculoskeletal pain, spinal dysfunction, and the application of physical therapy and rehabilitation.

Dr. Haussler is a charter diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation and course instructor for the Equine Rehabilitation Certification course, co-branded by the University of Tennessee and Colorado State University.
