I am Dr. Timothy Kinsella, D.C., the owner and founder of Kinsella Chiropractic Clinic. I have been practicing in the Litchfield community since 2004.

I am a board certified chiropractic physician and acupuncturist licensed by the state of Minnesota. My ultimate goal for Kinsella Chiropractic Clinic is to have a faith based clinic that strives to serve the Lord. I am committed to bringing you better health and a better way of life by teaching and practicing the true principles of chiropractic wellness care. I have continued my education through many post graduate courses including but not limited to: Disc Disorders and Spinal Osteoporosis, Chiropractic Extremity Adjusting Protocols, Managing Chronic Patients, Sports Physicals, DOT Examinations, Dizziness, Graston technique and acupuncture. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, as well as expecting mothers, and formulate a treatment plan for each patient’s individual needs. I treat many conditions with acupuncture including but not limited to infertility, fibromyalgia, allergies, asthma, sinusitis, headaches and joint pain. On a personal note, I was born and raised in Litchfield to a wonderful family. My wife, Melissa, and I have four beautiful children – Ty, Jasmine, Gia and Roman. We are extremely excited to raise our family here. In addition to raising a family, I am also very active in the Minnesota wrestling programs and have a passion to give back to a sport that gave me so many wonderful opportunities.

My name is Mark Mahoney; I have been practicing chiropractic since 2004 and have with Kinsella Chiropractic since 2011. After receiving my undergraduate degree in biology from Moorhead State University, I attended Northwestern Health Sciences University to obtain my Doctor of Chiropractic degree. I later went back to Northwestern to complete my acupuncture certification and have been utilizing this form of medicine for the past three years. As a physician, I have found that patients benefit from many forms of care: adjustments, acupuncture, and muscle therapy are just some of the things that I specialize in. Using these methods, I have had the opportunity to see people heal and find relief from many things including headaches, musculoskeletal pain, sinus issues, and many other conditions. The Graston Technique and manual form of muscle therapy that has been effective in treating chronic overuse injuries like tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis and other sport/work related injuries. Professionally and personally I am excited to join Dr. Tim. This move is bringing my family and I closer to the things that are important to us – our extended families and the values of a close knit community. I look forward to sharing my chiropractic skills with the community and hope to serve you and your family at Kinsella Chiropractic Clinic.
Dr. Erin Hovey
Hello! My name is Dr. Erin Hovey, the newest member to Kinsella Chiropractic Clinic. My mission to become a doctor started way back in high school where I was encouraged by my science teacher who always told me “you can do it, Erin!” and my grandmother who said she “needed her back more than her teeth”. Following high school my journey took me to University of North Dakota (Go Sioux!) where I received my undergraduate degree in biology. From there I attended Northwestern Health Sciences University and graduated a Doctor of Chiropractic in the fall of 2013. After practicing in Minneapolis for a year I have returned to my hometown of Atwater, MN to serve the community that helped get me where I am today! My mission going forward is to provide Atwater and the surrounding area with a more natural approach to healthcare through chiropractic. I strive to teach my patients the benefits of chiropractic in hopes that they can achieve a healthy, more functional life. I offer a variety of adjusting techniques including diversified, drop-piece, activator, and flexion-distraction technique. Other modalities that I use in my treatment include but are not limited to myofascial release, soft tissue mobilization, therapeutic exercise, kinesio-taping, and supplementation. I believe chiropractic is for all ages, and modify my treatments accordingly. I am excited to be working for Kinsella Chiropractic Clinic in Atwater. I look forward to serving you and your family!
