Dr. Tara Z. Kern, DC

Dr. Tara Zempel Kern is a native of western New York and has relocated to the DMV area to provide chiropractic services to Montgomery and it's surrounding counties.  After graduating from John Carroll University with a Bachelor's degree in Biology, Dr. Kern continued her education by obtaining a Doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College.  While in chiropractic college, Dr. Kern achieved certification in Whole Foods Nutrition, Applied Kinesiology, ConnecTX (a soft tissue therapy), and custom stabilizing orthotics.  She was awarded the remote internship at Monroe Community Hospital where she was able to treat patients who had suffered from severe neurological damage.  Dr. Kern is also a certified Kinesiotape practitioner, a taping method that is popular among athletes.  Dr. Kern was in private practice in Rochester, New York for two years before transitioning to Maryland.  After practicing with a group for one year, Dr. Kern decided it was time to branch off on her own and open Complete Chiropractic & Rehabilitation.  She believes that her dedication to a patient's individual needs and love for the healing nature of chiropractic sets her apart from other practitioners.  Currently, Dr. Kern is pursuing her Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) distinction. This will provide Complete Chiropractic the necessary tools to appropriately treat and manage athletes and their injuries. When she's not in the office, Dr. Kern can be found exploring the DMV area with her husband, Andrew, their dog, Bandit, and two kitties.  She loves cheering for the Buffalo Bills, reading anything non-fiction, and trying to stay as active as possible. Dr. Kern truly looks forward to meeting any new patients- please call, e-mail, or stop by with any questions.
