From a young age, I knew I wanted to heal people, it just took a couple of tries to get the right shoe to fit. Originally I was inspired by a Physical Therapist I met who worked so hard with a US Veteran to get him back on his feet, I thought perhaps that was the path for me. What I found was that shoe really didn’t fit well. Next, the arena of becoming a medical doctor appealed to me. After volunteering in a local Emergency Room, I quickly realized I didn’t want to be part of the medical world that just prescribed medication and hoped for a cure. I felt in my gut that there had to be a different way. One day on a drive with my mom, I asked her what she thought about chiropractic. She surprised me by answering that she had been adjusted by a chiropractor as a child. This was news to be as I knew very little about chiropractic and had never had an adjustment in my life. I was given the opportunity to shadow a local Chiropractor in my home town and was thrilled after I watched her adjust an older lady on my first day. The patient came in with chronic pain and just a dim sadness in her eyes. After the adjustment not only did she stand up straighter, she was moving without pain and restriction and she even had a twinkle back in her eyes. I was sold, if I could make that big of a change in someone’s life with just a few maneuvers and the patient could see those kind of results, I knew this was my path.
Dr. Shimer is amazing. After a very serious illness which included having to learn to walk again, Dr. Shimer helped me with not only very beneficial adjustments to my hips and spine, she also gave me exercises to strengthen my core. I will not have another Chiropractor work on me, because they have done more damage than good. I HIGHLY recommend that you check her out.
Dr. Wendy Shimer is the best Chiropractor I have ever found. I have been going to her for years and followed her to her new practice in Longmont. My lower back was injured when I was very young playing volleyball and then a car accident and Dr. Shimer has been able to give me great relief after all those years. This summer I received a concussion and, my head and face were out of place and Dr. Shimer was able to work on my neck, skull and face to get it all back in alignment. I can’t thank her enough for giving me back my quality of life. I highly recommend Dr. Shimer and the quality of care she gives to her patients.
