Meet the Team
Dr. Courtney Kautz
Dr. Courtney Kautz was born and raised in the Quad City area. She was a three-sport athlete at Pleasant Valley High School where she was first exposed to chiropractic care. It was her mentor, Dr. Shepherd, that treated her sprained ankles and got her back to the competition quickly. This experience sparked her interest in chiropractic care and led to her future as a chiropractic sports physician.
Dr. Courtney went on to play collegiate soccer at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL and then to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. To balance out the studying, Dr. Courtney was involved in numerous clubs including the women’s soccer team and the sports chiropractic club. After graduation, Dr. Courtney completed advanced training to become certified as a chiropractic sports physician which enables her to adequately treat injuries of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle effectively.
Today, Dr. Courtney continues to live in the Quad Cities with her husband, Mike, and their rescue dogs, Remi and Maisy. She loves to trail run with the pups and work on DIY projects at home with her husband. Dr. Courtney looks forward to continuing to provide top notch, individualized care as a leading sports chiropractor in the Le Claire and surrounding communities.
