About Dr. Wendy Shimer of Shimer Chiropractic
Walking the path to health
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. Wendy Shimer's Story
I decided to attend the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa after much research.  I graduated in 2005 and later learned that I was a bit unusual in the chiropractic field.  Most chiropractors joined the profession after seeing profound results in their own lives.  I never experienced the advantages of chiropractic medicine until I was already in school.  My first adjustment was rather painful because of my spine flexibility.  Normal adjustments given while lying on the side, just wouldn’t work for my spine.  In fact, it took over 25 tries to get my spine to finally cooperate.  If there were people just like me out their struggling, I knew I could help them and I wouldn’t give up on them just as my teacher and fellow students didn’t give up on me.

This also ingrained the knowledge that one technique won’t always work to adjust every patient.  I decided to learn as many chiropractic techniques as possible, so that I would be able to help as many people as possible in whatever way their body would respond.  I have never stopped learning, I think this is one of the reasons I see such great results in my patients health.  I’ve learned that patients bodies are like puzzles, no two are alike and I love figuring out the puzzle.

Dr. Shimer is incredible! She takes the time needed to understand what is going on with her patients. I was in so... much pain that I didn't even know exactly everything that was hurting. She did and in just 2 visits, I feel like a new person! Thank you so much Dr. Shimer for the skill and compassion you bring to your profession. I look so forward to continuing my journey with you to overall great health!read more

Between the work of Dr. Shimer through regular cranial therapy and my massage therapist (SunMoon Medical Massage) my... TMJ problems have almost disappeared! My mouth and jaw feel completely different. I no longer deal with daily discomfort/pain. And bonus, my face has literally changed shape! Things are getting put back where they should be, and I no longer have a favored "good side" for photos, making my face more symmetrical.read more

I had not been adjusted in almost a year. Dr. Shimer took the time to explain her adjustment process, and she also... spent time learning about my family history. She provided thorough care and taught me the importance of proper walking. She also provided me some useful stretching exercises to keep me flexible. I would recommend Dr. Shimer!read more

Having had back problems for over 20 years, this wonderful lady walked in our shop one day (3 doors down from the... office). She told me she was a chiropractor and I mentioned an issue i had. She came over and looked at my neck and said she could help. Well that was during the holidays. I was scared. I had back surgery in 1983 and was worried about it. Well today I walked in for my first appointment. She made me feel at home, answered all of my questions, explained every step and OMG I feel like a new man. There was zero pain with the process, she explained each step and each move, walked me through everything including a follow up plan. I feel a zillion times better, I can walk straight instead of the 4-inch difference in my legs they are now equal. I could not possibly be happier! Thank you, Dr. Wendy, and Hassie for all your help, reassurance and support today. I highly recommend anyone needing chiropractic care to come here! Do not delay! Jeffread more

Wendy (Dr. Shimer) is simply fantastic. She has wonderful chiropractic skills and awesome equipment. I began seeing... Wendy when she was practicing at The Joint and followed her when she started up her own practice in Longmont. Among her new equipment is a wonderful chiropractic bed that does everything but hug you and pat you on the head. I highly recommend Dr. Shimer.read more

When Dr. Shimer opened her own practice, I was ecstatic! I hunted her down when she left her former employer until I... could find her because she is that good. Dr. Shimer has helped me so much with strength, core exercises, and, finally, I can stand up straight. She has a very gentle touch if that is what you need, and she explains everything she is doing and why. I will NEVER see another Chiropractor again. If you have not tried going to a Chiropractor before, you should come see Dr. Shimer. She is DEFINITELY worth the visit. Highly recommend.read more
