Meet Dr. Amy Spoelstra

Dr. Amy Spoelstra began her undergraduate work at Michigan State University and would later graduate from Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Once finished with chiropractic school, Dr. Spoelstra and her husband moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho where they opened Spoelstra Family Chiropractic. After a couple of years, it was obvious to Dr. Spoelstra that working with children and families was her true passion and calling.

Dr. Spoelstra began pursuing qualifications in chiropractic pediatric care. Currently, Dr. Spoelstra is finishing a diplomat in chiropractic pediatrics through the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association), is a SHINE certified doctor (neurodevelopmental disorders), is a student of Intersect for Kids (Dr. Monika Buerger), and is pursuing a fellowship through the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies in Childhood Developmental Disorders.

In June of 2012, Spoelstra Family Chiropractic introduced a new program called FOCUS. The FOCUS program is a drugless approach to neurodevelopment disorders such as ADD/ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, or undiagnosed problems with hyperactivity, impulsivity, or an unexplained lack of productivity. FOCUS provides children, teens, and adults a way to manage and improve these traits without the use of medication.

Dr. Spoelstra strives to educate all of her patients to truly understand their health choices and to never make decisions out of fear. Healthcare is not about waiting around for the body to breakdown in order to become healthy again. True healthcare is about making responsible choices each and every day to make sure the body is always operating at its full potential.
