Dr. Charles W. Schollmeyer ~ Schollmeyer Family Chiropractic
After 16 years at the corner of 19th and Bell Streets, Schollmeyer Family Chiropractic is making some adjustments.
Charles W. Schollmeyer, who opened his business in 1997, moved recently to 2415 E. 23rd Ave. South, Suite 200.
“There are new changes about every week because it takes a while to really get things organized,” Schollmeyer said.
Anytime Fitness moved into 7,400 square feet of the former Goodwill building last year after Heineman Properties LLC purchased the building and remodeled it.
Prokicks Martial Arts Academy and Glassman Hearing Aids are also located there.
“It’s all new, a new look, and we like being next to the fitness center. We feel that’s right up our alley,” Schollmeyer said.
“We needed more space for parking and we like the location,” he said.
Schollmeyer hosted an open house and Chamber of Commerce coffee last week to introduce his new facility, and the increased visibility afforded by the 23rd Street corridor is making his practice easier to find, he said.
“I get a number of people who are actually noticing we’re here,” he said. “They knew we were in town, but they just didn’t know where.”
With 1,200 square feet, Schollmeyer Family Chiropractic actually downsized a little from its original location, “but we’re utilizing it pretty well,” Schollmeyer said. “It was just a shell so we got to do a complete build-out.”
Customer reaction to the ultra-modern open area with its high ceilings and flat screen wall televisions, “has been very positive,” he said.
Schollmeyer uses digital X-rays, which he said are more accurate, and nerve testing features.
“It’s a good tool for the evaluation of their progress,” he explained.
A licensed chiropractor since 1994, Schollmeyer said educating his patients is an important aspect he stresses as part of their treatment.
“In our office we work together with our patients. We do a lot of in-home work, like teaching them certain exercises they can do at home by themselves. I let them do as much as they can on their own; it’s a more active approach,” he said.
Weekly workshops at Schollmeyer’s are a somewhat unique feature, he said.
“We do 30 different topics at different times of the year,” he said. “It’s sort of a rotation so it probably takes about 18 months to get into all the different topics.”
A recent topic, “Stress: Adapt or Perish,” addressed how stress affects the body, and an upcoming session is titled, “Cervical Brushing and Flossing.”
A class listing is available at www.schollmeyer.com.
“I’d say the education is a big thing,” Schollmeyer said. “It’s not only about getting you better physically, but also teaching you how to take care of yourself.”
