Dr. Bill Schuver will host an open house Wednesday, at his office, 201 Lakeview Ave., Jamestown, to acknowledge 25 years of chiropractic practice in Jamestown.
Treatment will be given for a $20 donation to the Salvation Army Anew Center. All proceeds will help the centers outreach programs which provide counseling for children who are victims of abuse.
In 1987, Schuver graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in St Louis and returned to Jamestown to begin his career. He went to work as an associate for Dr Bob Schaffnit, who was a chiropractor in the city for 51 years. Schuver has continued on in solo practice after the passing of Dr. Schaffnit in 1999.
Schuver has a family practice with treatment for people with many types of spinal problems. Patients are cared for with a combination of gentle chiropractic adjustments, myofascial therapy, rehabilitation and nutrition with an emphasis on a return to a healthy lifestyle. Schuver has treated patients both young and old, from toddlers until they were 100 years old. His affiliations have included the American Chiropractic Association, New York State Chiropractic Association, Sacral Occipital Research Society International, and Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research.
"I wanted to thank my patients with a special day, and give back to the community,'' Schuver said. "I also thank all who have helped the practice over the years.."
When asked what has changed in 25 years, Schuver replied, "More research in spinal manipulation has led to an improved perception of chiropractic, and better inter-professional communication."
