Dr. Wes Sheader - I became a doctor to help you gain control of your health and your life.
My mission is to help as many children and their families as possible with exceptional natural health care and educate them on how to be healthy so they can educate others which allows the greatest number of people the opportunity to reach their full potential and enjoy life-long health. My goal is to care for others physically, nutritionally and emotionally. To coach and encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle by eating right, proper physical activity and by following the golden rule in all their thoughts and acts.
A few years ago, Aetna Insurance did a review of the prior 10 years of all claims to try to show that chiropractic was expensive and not effective. However, it showed just the opposite: those who were under chiropractic care had on average $3000 per person less claims then those who were not under chiropractic care. Conclusion: paying people to go to chiropractors save the insurance companies $3000 a year per person. So, I am literally saving lives when I help someone regain their health, and saving them and our nation money.
I did my undergraduate studies at Mesa State College leading to a B.S. degree, and then received my doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1996, which is the founding college of chiropractic. I continued my studies and became one of only 153 Board-Certified Pediatric Chiropractic Diplomats in the world which required completing a three-year post-doctorate degree in the specialized area of Pediatrics, including pregnancy and infertility. I have been an instructor for the International Chiropractic Association Pediatric Conferences and published articles on Attention, ADD, Learning Disorders, and Colic. Articles submitted for publication: Urinary Tract Infections, GERD. I strive to expand my knowledge and skills and to impart these to others.
One of the ways I give back to the community is by presenting workshops on a variety of health-related topics to businesses, clubs and organizations. I serve my profession by being the president of the Mesa County Chiropractic Association.
Personally, I love spending time with my two sons. I am one of those dads that are out climbing on the playground and enjoying it as much as the kids do. I enjoy just about any outdoor or physical activity. One of my favorite hobbies is to restore and modify old muscle cars. I love my job--I get to see miracles happen in my patient’s lives every day!
