Amy Reynolds is a very well adjusted individual. You see, her grandfather and great-grandfather were both chiropractors. And today, she is chiropractor and owner of Columbia Chiropractic & Massage
in Downtown Camas.
“I have been adjusted my whole life and had the benefits of chiropractic care during sports, after accidents, and with migraines,” she said. “I wanted to be able to provide quality care for people to help them be able to live their best lives for as long as possible.”
The devotion to her craft over the past 15 years led Amy to the practice in downtown Camas. “I’m from a small town in Missouri, and I had been living and working in a city since 1998. I wanted to get back to a small town, community atmosphere. I had been looking at Camas for several years, and when the opportunity came about to purchase Columbia Chiropractic and Massage, I jumped on it. I’m excited to continue my journey with the Camas and Washougal community.”
After making the trek from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest, Amy attended the University of Western States and graduated in 2006 with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. “As my journey continued, it took me from Portland to Virginia and back, to finally land in Camas. I have been a lifeguard and trained lifeguards-to-be, worked in an Emergency Department and a phlebotomy lab, obtained my EMT-B, served in the United States Coast Guard, and most recently worked for the University of Western States as a Clinical Practitioner at the income-based clinic in Portland.”
Throughout her travels, Amy said she also had the opportunity to learn new and exciting things. “I obtained my Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician certification in 2017 and my FMT Movement Specialist certification. I am currently working on my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification and my Selective Functional Movement Assessment certification. All of this and more will help me provide the most up to date strengthening and rehab for each person that walks through the doors of Columbia Chiropractic & Massage.”
Taking over the Columbia Chiropractic business, she sought to make sure she was able to continue to provide known quality care that the patients had been accustomed to before and as they worked through this pandemic. “We did that by providing quality care to each person, listening to each individual, and providing an enjoyable atmosphere as soon as people walk into the clinic.”
Amy said she finds the most common quality among her local customers is “everyone that comes in is happy and positive about life and where they live and work.”
She said they welcome everyone into the office who wants to have less pain and be able to function easier, be it local community members, people who work in the area, or visitors visiting the area.
“Our approach at Columbia Chiropractic & Massage is to treat the whole person using chiropractic and massage therapies,” Amy said. “We offer a welcoming, warm and fun environment to help our patients get out of pain and back to living their best lives. In order to do this, we focus on movement and mobility as well as stabilizing and strengthening the body. Our main goal is for you to live your life without pain and with better movement. We want you to be able to sleep, work, run, participate in sports, bike and play with your kids or grandkids. We want you to be able to do the things that make you happy and thrive.”
Specifically, Amy is a musculoskeletal specialist. “I am a movement specialist,” she said. “I work to help every person achieve their goals, be it running their first marathon, playing their soccer game, playing with their kids and grandkids, working without pain, or sleeping a full night. The first goal is to get you out of pain, but the more important goal is to get you stable, strong and moving. As a human, our body is supposed to move, yet we spend the majority of our days sitting or just as bad, moving with bad mechanics, which is what we need to change.”
