Reflections on 30 Years in Practice
This month marks my 30th year in Chiropractic practice...22 of those years here at Remington Chiropractic. A lot has changed in the past 30 years! When I started in practice, Chiropractic was frowned upon by the medical establishment and many people didn't even know what Chiropractic was. But I was young, enthusiastic and ready to tell the world that I had something better to offer than drugs and surgery. Now I am older and wiser and still enthusiastic. I can't say that I enjoy keeping up with technology and regulations, but I love helping people get well and stay well through chiropractic treatment. There is nothing quite so rewarding as seeing the relief on someone's face when they are no longer in pain, or sharing in the joy they experience when they are able to return to a favorite sport or activity.
Over the years I've worked to remain true to my values of delivering exceptional care at a fair price. I believe that the best way to accomplish this is by emphasizing hands-on techniques and procedures that the best research evidence supports, and by empowering my patients to take an active role in their healthcare. One of the most important things I can do as a Doctor is to teach my patients how to manage their condition, how to get well, and how to stay well. That's why we insist on exercise and movement training and encourage everyone to make healthy lifestyle choices.
I've learned so much from my patients over these past 30 years. Your diverse backgrounds, needs and goals have expanded my thinking and challenged me to become a better doctor. I have had the privilege of treating many of you for the past 22 years and a few of you for even longer. I've treated pregnant mothers and children and watched them grow. I've treated folks in their later years, working to keep them moving and comfortable. And of course, there have been many of you in-between, juggling family and work, and trying to find a way to make health a priority. It has all been good!
Thank you for an amazing 30 years!
Yours in health,
Dr. Pamela Wells
