We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Jane Brewer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Jane, how does your business help the community?
Precision Chiropractic is not your traditional chiropractic clinic. We focus on a specialized niche in chiropractic called Upper Cervical Care. This approach is different in that our focus is directed toward the underlying instability of the spinal system, which is often the root cause of many secondary conditions (symptoms) such as headaches, migraines, neck and back pain, numbness, tingling, and vertigo. When people are experiencing health issues, the spine is often overlooked as a potential underlying cause. This is unfortunate since the spine protects the most vital organ in your body – your brainstem and spinal cord. If your brain is not able to properly communicate with the tissues and organs of your body due to a spinal misalignment, then a loss of function (and of course pain and discomfort) can result. Conventional options for treating conditions with structural origins include medications (pain killers, anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxers), cortisone injections, and even surgical intervention. While there’s certainly more than one way to cook an egg, Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is a gentle, natural way to restore integrity to the central nervous system by correcting the structural foundation of your spine – the atlas! We help people from all over Northern Colorado and beyond not only feel better in the short-term but regain their quality of life for the long run. What this means for our community is transforming “I’ve tried everything” into “I wish I had found you sooner.” I believe that a community thrives when its members are educated and empowered about their bodies and what being healthy truly means, and we are blessed to play a role in that.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
For me, starting a business has been a labor of love for sure. It takes some long days and sleepless nights to make everything work – especially in the beginning when I found myself wearing many hats! I wouldn’t say it has been easy, but I would say it has been fulfilling. There are days now when I walk into my clinic and say to myself “I made this!” and that really is an incredible feeling. I’ve overcome challenges with the help of family, friends, and mentors. It can sometimes feel isolating when all of the responsibility falls into your lap. Having others to talk to who have walked similar paths has been very reassuring to me. Burnout for entrepreneurs is real and having a support system that can help you recognize this and help you chart a new course is essential. Precision Chiropractic is still 6 years young. I believe we have been able to build a loyal following and great community partnerships because we offer a unique approach to care. In the future, I hope to add other passionate providers so that I can have a bit more freedom in my personal life.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Oh man…there is so much to do in Northern Colorado! Breakfast would have to consist of a coffee and empanada at Bindle Coffee in Jessup Farms. We are a bicycle family, so we would undoubtedly cruise around the bike paths of Fort Collins and hit up some of the many amazing breweries as well. No day would be complete, either, without all the cheeses from The Fox and the Crow. The best part about living here is access to the outdoors. Winter would definitely call for a ski weekend (Steamboat? Breck?). Summertime is for mountain biking and hiking. Horestooth is a summer favorite for both, as is all of the beautiful terrain up Poudre Canyon. We’d definitely check out some music at the Red Rocks or the Mish, too.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I am currently working on a post-doctoral degree to become credentialed in my area of specialty. Our class was supposed to graduate in June 2021, but due to the pandemic, our studies have been delayed. I would love to recognize my DCCJP (Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures) classmates for staying the course and dedicating themselves to mastery, even through an incredibly challenging year. I would also like to recognize Dr. Kevin Lin with our sister office, Precision Chiropractic (Fernandina Beach, FL) for his ongoing support and mentorship.
