Chiropractor St. Charles IL Kyrie Kleinfelter

Chiropractor, Clinic Director

Kyrie Kleinfelter D.C.

Before she became a NUCCA chiropractor in St. Charles, Illinois, Dr. Kyrie was a teacher when she fell seriously ill with “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome” in her early twenties. She was unable to work or even participate in the everyday activities of life.

Suffering from constant bodily pain and weakness, memory loss, inability to concentrate, and severe lack of energy she sought care from several medical doctors. She was told she might always be like that. It wasn’t until she started NUCCA care that she got her life back. It was then that Dr. Kleinfelter decided to dedicate her life to helping others with NUCCA Chiropractic.

Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA in 2001. She founded 1st Place Chiropractic in 2002 helping thousands of people over the years and training many new NUCCA chiropractors.

Dr. Kleinfelter and her husband Marc homeschool their five children and love to travel the world with them. Checking and correcting spinal misalignments since birth is the foundation for the fantastic health these Kleinfelter kids enjoy. Dr. Kleinfelter is a true missionary for NUCCA Chiropractic and is almost always teaching or recruiting students to NUCCA when she travels. Her goal is to let the world know about NUCCA. She says, “Everyone should at least know about it and have their Atlas checked.”

Chiropractor St. Charles IL Justin Coop


Justin Coop D.C.

Dr. Justin Coop became a doctor to help people with the most precious gift a person can have – a state of good health. After a childhood of witnessing his mother living in constant pain, she finally got life changing relief from chiropractic care.

It was observing people getting well from so many different problems and the joy the patients and staff had in the chiropractic office he observed that made Justin change from studying Pre-Med in college to pursuing a Doctor of Chiropractic degree instead.

Dr. Coop graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, MO in 2003. He brings much experience with him to 1st Place Chiropractic. Dr. Coop has advanced training and certifications in multiple chiropractic techniques, muscle therapies, and even Functional Medicine – a natural approach to addressing the root causes of chronic conditions. Dr. Coop has had a very successful chiropractic career, helping thousands of people. He’s been the Clinic Director of a very busy clinic; he’s owned his own Functional Medicine practice. With all he’s learned, Dr. Coop comes to the conclusion that precisely correcting the Atlas Subluxation is the necessary foundation to good health. This is why after 19 years, he’s practicing NUCCA with us at 1st Place Chiropractic. “I’m excited to join 1st Place Chiropractic because they are known for their excellent care and precise adjustments. Without fully correcting the Atlas subluxation, adjustments cannot stay in place. The body is only healing while it remains in its proper alignment.”

Dr. Coop and his wife, Dorothy, have three children who are active in school activities, club soccer, and club volleyball. In his spare time Dr. Coop loves to watch his kids playing their sports, cooking, and having fun creating new healthy meals for his family. Growing up on a farm as a child and spending a great deal of time outside-he loves being outdoors and simply being out in nature.

Chiropractor St. Charles IL Megan Pearson


Megan Pearson D.C.

Ever since Dr. Megan Pearson was little, she was always sick and had a lot of falls but remained very active in soccer and volleyball. Throughout middle school, she developed food sensitivity, dizziness, fatigue, and overall body pain. Her parents took her from doctor and doctor, but no one could give answers as to why this was occurring.

Eventually through a family friend, Dr. Pearson's mom took her to a chiropractor. They were able to provide relief and improve her health tremendously. This was just the start of why Dr. Pearson wanted to become a chiropractor.

After high school, Dr. Pearson attended Undergrad at University of Minnesota Duluth. After graduating with a degree in Exercise Science, she decided to take a year off in Duluth to focus on being a personal trainer. After that year, Dr. Pearson applied for chiropractic school, and got accepted at the beginning of 2020 but then the world changed. She started chiropractic school in the midst of covid in the fall of 2020.

At chiropractic school, she had taken an elective class that focused on upper cervical, and she was chosen to be the class demo patient. After that 1st adjustment, her immune system improved and no longer dealt with low back pain or restless sleep. Being able to experience NUCCA, Dr. Pearson knew she wanted to take that route for her chiropractic career.

Dr. Pearson moved from her home in Minnesota to come master the art of NUCCA with 1st Place Chiropractic, as she knew this was how she could best follow and fulfill her passion of helping people and changing lives. She is eager to share NUCCA with the world and is ready to help patients live their best, healthiest, and happiest lives.

In her spare time, Dr. Pearson still enjoys participating in any sports especially volleyball and pickleball. She also enjoys making art, being outdoors, and being with family and friends.

Christine has always had a love of the health care field and a strong desire to help others. She took an interest in chiropractic when she experienced back pain, as well as gallbladder pain, and was told by her doctor that she may need surgery to remove her gallbladder.
