A new chiropractic clinic has opened in Chetek.
Dr. Trevor Secraw and his wife, Katy Secraw, have opened Foundations Pediatric and Family Chiropractic in Chetek, in the former office of Chetek Chiropractic Health Clinic and Dr. Gerry Hovde. The Secraws are from Colfax, and are also joined by their 14-month-old son, Isaac.
Trevor specializes in pediatric and maternity chiropractic work. He has a focus on behavioral and neurodevelopmental health; helping people with conditions including attention deficit disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression or autism. But he also works on people of all ages and also does traditional adjustments.
Secraw said he works to clear a person’s nervous system so it works better. He can help people deal with back pain and headaches and get better sleep or concentration. He uses thermography, electromyography and heart rate variability scans to help with diagnostic exams.
The clinic has an open layout, as well as a private consult and exam room. Trevor noted that the open layout is better for families, so family members can receive good healing, together.
However, the open exam room isn’t just for families. Trevor said building a community among people—his patients—is important. Katy noted that at other clinics, patients who didn’t know each other but had appointments at the same time, often become friends. Their appointments become a social, as well as healing, activity.
Whether that is among family members or fellow patients, when people have better communication, they also have better treatment outcomes, Trevor explained, and an open-flow adjustment area helps foster that.
But they also have a private exam room if people wish to have adjustments alone or discuss issues with him privately. There is also a kids’ room for when parents have appointments.
Trevor studied at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where he earned his bachelor’s degree. After he graduated and he and Katy married, Trevor studied chiropractic medicine at Life University in Atlanta, Ga. He became fully licensed earlier this year, after interning last year.
At the Chetek office, they also have another employee, Kenton Troutman, working at the front desk in the afternoon. Katy works in the office in the mornings.
The Secraws opened the office on June 1.
On Saturday, June 19, from 1–4 p.m., they will have a grand opening. There will be door prizes, a small petting zoo, fun activities for kids, food and tours of the clinic.
The clinic is located 600 First St., Chetek. They can be reached by phone at 715-924-2998 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
