Dr. Riddell has been a pioneer in the Chiropractic profession for thirty-eight years, beginning with her matriculation as part of the first graduating class of Sherman College, an innovator and leading member of the purist school of Chiropractic. She is an expert in numerous adjusting techniques, adept in the more physical methods, but particularly focused on gentler, “soft-work” approaches that get results through focused energy and minimal physical pressure. Dr. Riddell is committed to progress and growth in alternative healing. She has participated in hundreds of postgraduate professional seminars, and has brought restorative health and wellness to over 10,000 patients. Her place at the vanguard of Chiropractic is demonstrated by her status as the first certified practitioner in West Virginia of the ground-breaking Impulse I.Q. Healing System, the first instrument to utilize computer sensors to analyze and adjust misaligned bones and muscles. She is a certified chiropractic sports physician and also holds post graduate certifications in physical therapy and acupuncture treatment.
She resides with her husband, Roland, in Winchester, Virginia. Dr. Catherine is a proud mother of two children and stepmother of Roland’s six other children. She and Roland are blessed with four beautiful granddaughters. She is also an active member of her church, choir, and community.
Dr. Catherine, D.C., is a graduate of the Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina and a diplomat of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
Dr. Catherine is the recipient of the West Virginia Chiropractic Society’s “Presidential Award” for dedication to the Chiropractic profession for the year 1991. She received “Spirit of Sherman College” award from her alma mater in 2000 and was a guest lecturer at Pennsylvania College of Straight Chiropractic in 1982 and at Sherman College in 1997. Also in 2010, she was recognized by Governor Joe Manchin, III and the Small Business Development Center for her years of Chiropractic service in the Eastern Panhandle.
