Meet Windie McKay, DC

Windie McKay, DC, discovered chiropractic care in the fall of 1990 after suffering a back injury from a car accident. Traditional medicine did not provide relief from her pain. Shortly after seeking care from a chiropractor in New Paltz, New York, she was pain free. This led her to alter her coursework in college and discover a passion for herbal medicine, aromatherapy, massage and chiropractic. 


Education, Training & Fellowship

Dr. McKay graduated (with honors) from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 1993 and went on to graduate (also with honors) from Cleveland University – Kansas City College of Chiropractic in Kansas City, Mo., in 1996.

In 2005, Dr. McKay discovered acupuncture when her second child was in breach position and a close friend and mentor used acupuncture to help correct the baby’s positioning. She was intrigued by the process, which led her to further her education with acupuncture training over the next two years at Logan Chiropractic College in St. Louis, Mo. 

Since 2005, Dr. McKay has studied with incredible masters of acupuncture, including Richard Yennie, Honora Wolfe, Richard Tan, Felice Dunas, Kiiko Mastsumoto and Giovanni Maciocia. In addition to an understanding of traditional Chinese medicine, her training has also incorporated the Japanese techniques of needling, laser acupuncture, Taoist acupuncture, auricular therapy, cupping, gua sha and qi gong.

Dr. McKay regularly attends the Academy of Oriental Medicine’s Southwest Symposium for Acupuncture in Austin, Texas. She has advanced training through Chicago Medical School’s Diamond Headache Clinic and has completed several extra years of study in nutrition, including studies with Northwestern Health Sciences University.

In 2014, she completed a fellowship program in anti-aging, regenerative and functional medicine through the Medical Educator Consortium. Since graduating college, she has studied to enhance her meditation knowledge and has completed several programs through the Isha Foundation. She has recently worked to further her meditation studies through coursework with the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health with the National Institute of Health.

Dr. McKay began her practice in Springfield, Il., in 1997, when there were few female chiropractors. She continued to seek further knowledge in additional areas of alternative medicine, such as Reiki and meditation.

Committed to bringing alternative medicine to a larger audience in the medical community, Dr. McKay joined Springfield Clinic in 2003, where she was able to establish a new department. This allowed her to connect with other medical providers and expand the awareness of chiropractic and alternative medicine. She also felt motivated to become a certified personal trainer and still maintains a love of exercise and fitness.

Dr. McKay has traveled the world in search of indigenous and ancient medicine. She has spent time with Native American medicine providers and tribal medicine chieftains. 

She enjoys time with her family, music, cooking and gardening. She has also been involved in missionary work most of her life and plans to continue to devote her time and efforts to that work in the future. Her dream is to provide central Illinois with elite alternative medicine that is easily accessible.

Tips from a Chiropractor

Dr. McKay has a list of tips that can save you a sore neck, back and wallet:

  • Use ice for acute pain – never use heat unless suggested by a chiropractor.
  • Do not sleep on your stomach. Sleep on your side or on your back.
  • Place your computer directly in front of you and not to one side of your desk. You do not want to have your head turned in one position all day long.
  • Keep your heel height below one inch. High heels can worsen low back pain.
  • When picking objects from the floor, use your legs and lift straight up. Hold the object close to the body.
  • Do not carry a heavy purse or bag on only one side of your body. Decrease the amount of items in your bags and frequently change shoulders.
  • Take frequent breaks at work if you have a computer based job. Sitting for prolonged periods of time can worsen low back pain.
  • Drink more water. Dehydration can cause headaches.
  • Cut down on caffeine.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Eat healthy and exercise at least 20 minutes per day.
  • Consider regular massage therapy appointments.
  • Deep breathing can reduce pain.
  • Good posture can prevent lumbar pain.
  • Decreased ranges of motion may indicate you need to see a chiropractor.
