Meet the Doctor: Bethany Long DC
Dr. Bethany Long was born and raised in Overland Park, Kansas. She grew up dancing and being very active, which fostered an interest in health, and fitness from a young age. Ever since she was a little girl, Dr. Bethany and her family joked that one day she'd become the "Dancing Doctor."
After having lived in Overland Park her whole life, she attended the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona for her undergraduate studies, earning a BFA in Dance Performance with a minor in Physiology. During her time in Arizona, she danced professionally, taught, and was also a personal and group trainer. Dr. Bethany always knew that she wanted to do something health-care related once her dance career was over, but she was uncertain as to what to do until she sustained a back injury while living in Arizona.
After her back injury, Dr. Bethany decided to seek out chiropractic care for the first time. While undergoing care, she gained a mentor in Dr. Eric Vindiola, who played vital role in fostering Dr. Bethany's interest in the chiropractic field. Eventually, she began working as a chiropractic assistant for Dr. Vindiola, and her interest in chiropractic care grew exponentially.
In 2013, Dr. Bethany moved back to Kansas City to further her education at Cleveland University- Kansas City (formerly Cleveland Chiropractic College). While at Cleveland, she worked closely with her mentors to gain additional knowledge in prenatal, pediatric, and sports care for her future patients. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from CU-KC in 2016. She also received both the Clinic Excellence and Clinic Performance award for her work in the clinic.
Dr. Bethany is Webster technique certified, FAKTR taping certified, Activator proficient, and is working towards completing the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) seminar series.
From the moment you meet Dr. Bethany, you will feel the love she has for all of her patients. She has a passion for helping others unlock their potential and live a healthier lifestyle. She is committed to helping each patient feel their best, so they can thrive in all aspects of life. Outside of the office, Dr. Bethany can be found teaching dance, working out, reading, spoiling her nieces and nephews, and cuddling with her fur babies.
