Dr. Laura Sims, Chiropractor
As a child Dr. Laura Sims’ life goal was to become a chiropractor. When Dr. Sims was 14 years old, she fractured her lowest lumbar vertebra snowboarding. This caused her to suffer severe low back pain. As a first resort she sought Chiropractic Care and has since healed with no traces of any injury. Growing up in a Chiropractic home ignited a fire for Chiropractic that still burns brightly today.
Dr. Sims graduated from Life University in 2006. During her college studies she had the opportunity to learn pediatric adjusting, extremity adjusting and upper cervical adjusting techniques. She has taken care of many pregnant women, infants, children, and athletes. Dr. Sims has published a Case Study in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research entitled: Resolution of Infertility in a Female Undergoing Subluxation Based Chiropractic Care: Case Report & Review of Literature – Laura Sims DC [August 6, 2008, pp 1-6]
Dr. Jacob Sims, Chiropractor
Dr. Jacob Sims wrestled throughout his childhood for 10 years and injured his elbow. The orthopedic surgeon told him he would have to remove a portion of his elbow and re-route his nerves and arteries. He decided that God gave him that portion of his elbow for a reason and declined surgery. After experiencing many years of pain, he began Chiropractic care and his elbow is fully functional now and he has no pain.
This began his Chiropractic Journey.
His goals were to educate people about the Natural Law’s of Health. Dr. Sims graduated from Life University in 2007 where he had the opportunity to provide Chiropractic Care to Men in Drug/Alcohol Rehab, at Life Universities Outreach Clinic on a daily basis.
Dr. Tara Madden, Chiropractor
Dr. Tara Madden grew up in Southern California, where she enjoyed being outdoors. From the time she was a young girl she had a passion for serving others. She played soccer while studying for her bachelor’s degree at Salem College.
After graduating and moving home Dr. Madden was told that a medical condition she had was incurable and that she would have to take medications the rest of her life. That’s when she recalled learning about chiropractic at Salem and decided she wanted to help people without the use of medications. She began school at Sherman College of Chiropractic and her medical condition started to get better. She realized that living a life free of nerve interference was possible and it was the only way she wanted to live. She strives to provide all practice members with an interference free life. Dr. Madden lives here in Montrose with her dog, Daisy. Together they enjoy camping, rafting, hiking and playing outside.
Hi, my name is Josie. My family and I started receiving Principled Chiropractic care in 2013. In 2015, I became part of the New Life Chiropractic team. I am a huge proponent of Chiropractic because my family has had amazing health results! I really enjoy helping other people receive natural, drug-less healthcare that allows the body to heal naturally.
Hi, my name is Debbie! Before moving to Colorado from Illinois in 2015, I had taken a pretty serious fall. I tore the meniscus in my left knee, hyper-extended my left thumb and tore the rotator cuff in my left shoulder. I was in constant, unrelenting pain. I was on tons of medications, but none of them helped me. I also had to use a cane to get around and even worse, I couldn’t sleep flat in my bed, I had to sleep in a recliner!! After moving here, I was referred by my doctor to a place in Grand Junction to see if they would be able to help me with my pain. Well, after several steroid injections, I was no better off than when I started. They told me the next step would be to go in and cut the nerve! No thank you!! A few months had passed and when I saw the ad in the newspaper about a front/office medical position, I applied. Well to my good fortune I was hired at New Life Chiropractic. I started under Principled Chiropractic Corrective Care August, 2016. Since being under care, I am now off all my meds, I no longer use my cane and I can actually sleep in a bed. I also have my daughter, my mother, and several other family members under care now. The changes I have seen first-hand are absolutely amazing!! My mission now is to educate and help as many people as I can about Principled Chiropractic Care.
Hi my name is Maria, I had suffered from headaches and migraines on a regular basis. I was having a headache pretty much every day, to not have one was a very good day. I had a migraine at least once a week. Going to a medical doctor never cured my condition, only led me to get a new prescription every visit. Medications that didn’t help, but would cause more harm if I were to just stop. I seriously thought this was just going to be my life. Since I started chiropractic care, almost immediately the headaches went away and I have not had a migraine. It has also helped me with issues that had just become my normal. I’ve regained so much that I didn’t even realize I had been missing energy, sleep, and just plain feeling good. I’m blessed to also have my son under care. My heart’s desire is to serve, help, and educate people of the hope that lies in chiropractic care. Healing truly happens here and lives are changing. I’ve been able to witness this first hand. I am honored to be a part of this amazing team!
