"Chiropractic Adjustment." Mayo Clinic, 13 Aug. 2015. Web. 29 Aug. 2016.
Brett DeCou D.C., B.Sc., attended the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon to receive his Doctorate as a primary care chiropractic physician.
While under instruction for his Doctorate he completed 300+ hours of Adjustment Technique courses. Labs were held each quarter that were upwards of three hours, in class, hands on learning. In addition to these hours was the complimentary lecture that coincided with the hands on application.
However, nothing is a better teacher than time out in the field. Dr. DeCou completed over 20+ per week of in clinic care to his patients during his last three quarters of instruction. This amounts to hundreds of hours of patient care and adjustments.
In his last quarter, Dr. DeCou finished his Clinic Internship in Seattle, Washington. The chiropractic clinic he adjusted at saw upwards of 90+ patients a week.
After many years providing patient care within a high numbers, high overhead practice Dr. DeCou decided to move to Bozeman, Montana. In his practice in Bozeman, he is able to give more personal, hands on time with individual patients.
Dr. DeCou is grateful to have this opportunity in his career. He can now spend the time that is needed, with each patient, in order to practice the chiropractic profession with the quality, attention to detail and perfection that is most important to him.
