Dr. Kristina Ruddle


Dr. Kristina Ruddle graduated from Logan University in 2015 and is a licensed Chiropractor serving the St. Louis community. She was born and raised in South County, attending Assumption grade school and Cor Jesu High School. She has always enjoyed helping people and knew she wanted to be a doctor from a very young age. As a child she began seeing a Chiropractor for scoliosis, and from then on she knew Chiropractic was her calling. Kristina studied Biology, Pre-Medicine, and Business Administration at Saint Louis University. She then attended Logan University and received her Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and Doctorate in Chiropractic. While attending Logan, Kristina realized her love for treating pregnant women and children; she began putting in extensive hours working towards her Certification in Pediatrics outside of school. In 2017, she earned her Certification by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics. She now enjoys being able to keep the whole family healthy by treating pregnant women, infants, children, and adults of all ages!
