Meet Dr. Scott Nims

I enjoy helping patients who don’t want to mask their problems with drugs and to do everything possible to avoid surgical intervention.

The Path to Becoming a Chiropractor

“Believe it or not, chiropractic was never on my radar of occupational choices. I grew up not knowing, or even hearing of, a chiropractor. My calling has always been to help people.”

Through college, Dr. Nims considered everything from nursing to medical supply sales. It wasn’t until he sat down and had a deep conversation with the chiropractor that he eventually saw for his low back pain in his 20s that he realized the full potential that chiropractic has to offer people. “After that, it was a no-brainer what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.”

Education & Techniques

Dr. Nims graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri in 2010 and immediately began his practice career at Koehler Chiropractic Sports & Spinal Rehab. Besides the various techniques he uses daily in practice, Dr. Nims also has special instruction and training in other alternative therapies.

These include Receptor-Tonus Technique, as originated by Chiropractor Dr. Raymond Nimmo, myofascial release technique, and acupressure to focus on the soft tissues of the body (muscles, ligaments and tendons) to release muscle tension and improve body function.

A Passion for Helping Others

Each day patients with new injuries and health concerns allow Dr. Nims to put his education and practice skills to work. “I could not ask for a more rewarding and fulfilling career.” What he loves about chiropractic and what drew him to become a chiropractor is the freedom to use various means (nutrition, adjustments, physical therapy, etc.) to treat the patient as a whole to improve their health.
