Cadott Chiropractor : Dr. Shawn Kromrey
Hi! I’m Shawn Kromrey, better known around Cadott as “Doc”.
My Path to a Career in Chiropractic
“I was in eighth grade when I hurt my back snowmobiling. I went to the local chiropractor and his care brought me immediate relief.”
“Around the same time my father lost his job, and I decided then and there that I didn’t want to work for anyone else. I wanted to be my own boss. That, coupled with my sister’s encouragement to become a chiropractor and my desire to help people, set me on a path to pursue chiropractic as a profession at the age of 14.”
From High School to Chiropractic College
I chose high school courses that would benefit me in chiropractic school and completed my undergraduate degree in two years. Then I enrolled at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minnesota.
Achieving Goals, Opening Kromrey Chiropractic
Dr. Shawn graduated with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the age of 23. “What a sense of accomplishment! By the time I was 24, I had achieved my goal of opening my own practice.”
“When I started my practice in Cadott in 1989, most people in the area were unaware of or skeptical about chiropractic care. Over the years, the practice has grown and I’ve been able to see over 20,000 patients.”
I Love When My Patients “Get It”
It’s wonderful when patients experience and realize that chiropractic is not just for pain relief; it can prevent certain health problems and bring long-term wellness benefits, too. More than half of our patients realize the wellness benefits and have been coming to us for over 15 years.
When I’m working, my patients, their problems and outcomes often consume me. My wife is the hub that keeps the family going. That’s why family vacations are such a big deal for all of us. It’s a chance for us to get away from everything and just spend time together.
We have three children. Our oldest, Preston, graduated from Chippewa Falls Senior High School [Chi-Hi] in June, 2015. After attending the Commercial Diving Academy in Jacksonville, Florida, he is now employed as a commercial diver [NOT driver] in the State of Florida. Our daughter, Paige, also attends Chi-Hi and will be a Senior in the fall of 2016. Not only excelling academically, she enjoys playing soccer. She also spends a lot of time volunteering for different organizations, plus holding down a part-time job. Our youngest child, Alexa, will start Chi-Hi in September, 2016. She too enjoys playing soccer and is the musician in our family which includes playing the trumpet and piano.
After all is said and done, Dr. Shawn still loves to go snowmobiling.
