Meet Dr. Nikki Cottis

Discovering the True Power of Chiropractic

Chiropractor Gulf Shores, Dr. Nikki CottisAs a field hockey player, Dr. Nikki had experienced her fair share of injuries. She went to the chiropractor and was surprised when he asked her more about her overall health rather than just the area of pain in her back. After care, she didn’t just experience relief – she was able to stop taking her medications for migraines and allergies.

The first step in Dr. Nikki’s chiropractic education was to attend Pennsylvania State University at University Park. There, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Afterward, it was on to Life University in Marietta, Georgia. As a student, she traveled to the Sichuan province of China to share chiropractic. “It gave me a global view of how many people need chiropractic. There were millions of people who were looking for an alternative to the medical model to live healthier lives.”

Developing an Emphasis on Moms and Kids

During her time in China, Dr. Nikki’s love of pediatric care blossomed. The people she adjusted there included babies who were just days old. Since then, she has gone on to achieve additional qualifications, including

  • Pediatric adjusting certificate from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA)
  • Webster Technique certification from the ICPA
  • Certified childbirth educator through the International Childbirth Education Association (ICEA)
  • Certified BirthFit Professional
  • Certified in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)

Over the years, Dr. Nikki has been continually amazed at all that people are capable of under chiropractic care. “The longer I’m in practice, the more miracles I see. Even the subtle changes chiropractic can make in people transforms my perspective on health and healing.”
