Carrin Buckmaster,
Manual Therapist

Carrin is from Pillager, Minnesota, and lived there for 20 years. She moved to Michigan four years ago and started her career as a Chiropractic Assistant here at Shields Chiropractic.

Together, they have two dogs and two cats. While she’s away from the clinic, Carrin enjoys spending time at the gym and cooking.

She thinks that chiropractic is so great because it is a natural approach to health. It doesn’t put in or take away anything from the body. Chiropractic allows our body to work the way nature intended.
