2020 was really... something... wasn't it? We sure are ready for a New Year! Despite what's happening in the world, we're always focusing on the positives and continuing to provide our patients the best Chiropractic care in West Tennessee! What better way to start the new year than to introduce another doctor to Carroll County!
Dr. Shelley Simpson is a native of Kenton, TN. She graduated from the University of Tennessee at Martin with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science in 2015. During her time at UTM, she was a Therapy Technician at Cane Creek Rehabilitation where she performed rehabilitation exercises and functional movements with patients. This hands-on care inspired her to pursue a career in Chiropractic with a focus on mobility. Dr. Shelley attended Logan College of Chiropractic and was awarded the Service Award for being actively involved as the Student Government President, Mentor and Peer Tutor for Anatomy, Physiology, and Neuroanatomy.
Dr. Shelley is trained in manual chiropractic techniques but also gentle treatments such as Activator, Flexion/Distraction and Logan Basic Technique. Dr. Shelley is also trained in SFMA (selective functional movement assessment). This is a movement-based diagnostic system that is designed to find the underlying cause of pain by breaking down dysfunctional movement patterns. This is a technique commonly used with athletes of all ages.
Dr. Shelley’s true passion is in pediatric chiropractic care. While at Logan University, Dr. Shelley was one of only fifty students that had the opportunity to intern with Dr. Muriel Perillat, a nationally recognized Pediatric Chiropractor for over 41 years. Through this mentorship, Dr. Shelley learned advanced pediatric treatment techniques including cranial therapies, manual techniques and reflex assessment. Dr. Shelley’s advanced training in pediatric care allows her to help children with colic, reflux, ear infections and sleep issues through natural treatments.
“My favorite part of treating pediatric patients is helping alleviate the child’s symptoms so the transition into motherhood is better for mom and baby. Listening to mothers say how much better everyone in the house relaxes and sleeps more after visits is one of the greatest rewards!” said Dr. Shelley.
Dr. Shelley spent the last year as a Chiropractic Physician practicing in the Memphis area and is excited to join our team of doctors at Southern Chiropractic & Acupuncture.
With the addition of Dr. Shelley, our office will be offering extended hours for availability as well as new services. We're so excited to have Dr. Shelley join us and provide exceptional care for all of our patients. Stay tuned for more updates on new services provided by Dr. Shelley!
Happy New Year from all of us at Southern Chiropractic & Acupuncture!
