Dr. Chelsey Walters
Dr. Chelsey Walters wants to spur people into action to focus on health and how it can make a dramatic difference in their life.
“One patient I will always remember had severe sciatic pain running down her legs. She worked for a local school and helped with sporting events and the pain was so bad that she had a hard time helping or working. After her initial plan of care, she took a trip with the girls basketball team to Virginia,” Dr. Chelsey said. “Why was this a big deal? Because she had never left the state! Later she sent me a text and said that what she learned from me also inspired her to start eating better and going to the gym with one of her good friend’s. Those are the kinds of stories that keep me motivated to take care of people and continue to educate.”
In an ideal day in our clinic we would see a variety of patients from newborn to senior citizens and having the ability to touch their lives and improve their health through specific chiropractic care and a focus on natural health. We want to provide a welcoming environment they love coming back to!
The thing that stands out to me about our clinic is the warm, welcoming atmosphere. Each time a patient walks in the door they are welcomed by one of our energetic staff with a smile on their face. Our patients are not looked at as patients but instead as a part of my chiropractic family and we take care of them as such. Office Coordinators Nikki and Katelyn have an incredible ability to relate to people. That’s their favorite part – getting to know people and how they can help them – and having that deeper connection.
At Alignlife of Lafayette it’s not just about getting them out of pain, it’s about being able to pick up your kids again, being able to have energy and being able to enjoy life. “We want to change the way people see health. People see a doctor when they are sick, when they have reached a crisis. We want to change that because that is sick care, not health care.”
What makes Dr. Chelsey different is because she is the same…she is just like most Americans. “I have the ability to relate to people because I didn’t grow up in a natural health care model. I grew up in the medical model. I had allergy shots and antibiotic shots every time I had an infection. I grew up on the typical American diet of chicken, mashed potatoes and corn…and a lot of sandwiches. I didn’t even like vegetables; I didn’t even like lettuce.
Growing up in Odessa, Texas she was an avid softball player and began to notice that when she ate better, she felt better. When she was on the field 4 hours a day and felt sluggish, she knew she had to do something different. Her undergraduate studies in exercise science at Angelo State University (where she played collegiate softball) also helped her learn how best to fuel her body. “I just didn’t know what eating healthy actually meant,” she said. “It’s the same thing, most people just don’t know. That’s why we have such a tremendous focus on educating our patients and the community.”
Dr. Chelsey’s completed her education by obtaining her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Parker University College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas. She is trained in the Gonstead Method of analysis which provides specific and effective evaluations and hands-on adjustments which are also gentle on the patient. Dr. Chelsey also has advanced training in functional neurology, radiology, functional nutrition and exercise science. “Functional nutrition means that we want to not merely look at ‘normal’ – not what is just above disease or keeps you from being sick – we want to look at what is optimal.”
Lafayette feels like home. “Lafayette feels similar to my hometown,” she said. “Mostly because the people are incredibly friendly. I have been welcomed with open arms, literally by everyone. It’s also similar because it’s spread out and flat and the dramatic shifts in weather remind me of home. Dr. Chelsey is a member of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, Tippy Connect and Business Networking International as well as the Chiropractic Society of Texas and the International Chiropractic Association.
Dr. Chelsey is a West Texan who is ready to rumble and make a difference in health care. She is a fast-pitch softball short-stop with a touch of soft rose because she loves to curl up with a good romance and some popcorn.
Movie genre: That’s easy, Romantic comedies
Genre of music: I was raised in west Texas so of course it is Country. I love so many kinds of music but country will always be my Go-to.
Snack: I love popcorn! I have an air-popper at home so I can make my own popcorn each time I sit down to watch a movie
