Dr. Adam Hughes joined The Joint Chiropractic network of doctors in 2018 when he landed at the Ladue clinic. A biology major at Christian Brothers University, Dr. Adam received his doctorate in 2005 from Logan College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Adam says the thing he likes best about being in the chiropractic field is the contact with his patients: “Helping, and educating, the public on natural methods of health and wellness are what I really enjoy,” he says. “That, and constantly learning.”
Dr. Adam grew up in Memphis, Tenn., and worked there and Nashville before coming to Missouri. He and wife Jackie enjoy their 75-pound pit bull named Connie, and in his spare time, Dr. Adam enjoys time with family, weightlifting, fitness, podcasts, reading and traveling.
Dr. Adam’s first-hand experience with the medical field ultimately led him to chiropractic.
“I had been a pre-med major throughout college,” Dr. Adam says. “”I had known I wanted to go into healthcare and a service industry, but was disappointed when I started working in hospitals. Most doctors I met did not enjoy what they were doing, and I was not impressed with the care many of the patients were getting with drugs and surgery. I was fortunate to meet some local chiropractors while still in college and began learning more about natural methods of healthcare. It was also very apparent that the chiropractors loved what they were doing and were able to help a large volume of people.”
That ability and willingness to help has allowed Dr. Adam to leverage that attitude at The Joint Chiropractic’s Ladue clinic. “Working at The Joint allows the doctor to focus on patient care above all else,” he says.

Dr. Adam says the one thing he always keeps around the house is a good steak. “Protein,” he says, “is good for the soul.”
So is good conversation, and given the opportunity to sit down with anyone in history over a good steak, Dr. Adam says he would choose muppeteer Jim Henson, Dilbert comic creator Scott Adams, and actors Kevin Smith and Betty White. “I would want to hear good stories,” Dr. Adam says, “and laugh the whole time.”
The coolest thing Dr. Adam ever did took place after college. “I took a cross-country road trip with some friends camping all along the way,” he says. “The Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, and all the way up the West Coast highways to Seattle. It was great to experience so many beautiful places with good friends.”
Dr. Kaitlyn Crosby became part of The Joint Chiropractic team in early 2019 working in our Des Peres, Sunset Hills, and Clayton locations. She received her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Liberty University, and her doctorate of Chiropractic from Logan University with additional training in Diversified, Cox-Flextion Distraction, Thompson, SOT, and Acupuncture.
Dr. Kaitlyn, as she prefers to be called, says “The best thing about being a chiropractor is educating patients on how the body can naturally heal itself without medication.” Additionally she loves being in the Chiropractic field because “I’m able to treat a wide variety of issues; not just back and neck pain.”
A native to the St. Louis area Dr. Kaitlyn grew up in Florissant, MO. When not working at The Joint Dr. Kaitlyn enjoys spending time with her husband Michael and 3 kids with the newest addition, Carter Crosby born April 2019. Dr. Kaitlyn has been athletic her whole life and ran D1 track in College; she still enjoys running, along with golfing and weight lifting. There is no surprise she also has a Boston Terrier mix named Nike - great running partner!
Dr. Kaitlyn first decided Chiropractic was for her when “I saw how chiropractic care and regular adjustments impacted the healing ability and performance of injured athletes.”

Dr. Kaitlyn has a twin sister!
