"I’ve been doing CrossFit and going to different chiropractors for years. I’ve always had pain and an uncomfortable feeling in my shoulders when doing thrusters and pull-ups. Today Dr Paten did an adjustment that literally blew my mind. It was like that one section of my back/neck had been stuck for a lifetime. I took class afterwards and thrusters have never felt better. No pain, more range of motion than I’ve ever had, and I feel amazing. Dr Paten is super thoughtful and intentional with his work, which (in my opinion) is the most important characteristic of a chiropractor.SarahI am not easy on my body. I workout 4-6 days a week and am physical all day at my job. Before going to Dr. Wes I was having displaced ribs on a weekly basis, not sleeping well, and felt mentally drained constantly. Dr. Wes has treated everything from the physical, mental, and emotional. He treats the whole body and has helped me with ailments I didn’t even know I had. I move better, feel better, sleep better and can better show up for my patients and those in my own life, like myself! He takes the time to look at you as a whole, explain everything he is doing and why. He is professional, caring and brilliant. I could not recommend him more to anyone looking for help to feel like the best version of yourself! Thank you for all you do Dr. Wes!"
Pregnancy, Labor & Delivery, and Postpartum Care
Regular chiropractic adjustments for pregnant women are shown to decrease the time spent in labor and decrease pain while laboring. Aches and pains during pregnancy are decreased by addressing the areas of a mother’s body that are under the most stress as the baby grows. Specifically these areas include: the neck, between the shoulder blades, the lower back and hips, and the round ligament located at the front of the belly. By utilizing Webster Technique babies in a breech position will turn head down 84% of the time without more aggressive interventions.
"Dr Paten was the first Chiropractor I have ever worked with. I spoke with him when I was having a difficult time with back pain and cramps when I was pregnant. He was very knowledgeable and gentle, explaining how adjustments are different when you are pregnant because of your body's changes. I can’t begin to describe the difference it made! I visit him every chance I get now and would recommend Him to anyone (pregnant or not!)"
- Sarah S
"I started seeing Wes at the beginning of my second trimester of my pregnancy. It has always been very important to me to keep my body at its healthiest and feeling the best prior, during, and will continue to do so after pregnancy. I knew my body would be changing in many ways while pregnant and I wanted to make sure I was giving it the best care possible leading up to delivery. That was when I started seeing Wes on a weekly basis early on and sometimes even twice a week as I became further along for adjustments.
Each visit has been incredibly effective and he was able to relieve my back pain, ligament pain as my belly began to expand, keep me properly aligned, which allowed me to continuously workout and feel great during my entire pregnancy.
Wes always makes me feel very comfortable and I love how he thoroughly explains everything behind what and why he will be manipulating certain areas and what it will help. He is very intelligent and truly cares about his patients. Seeing him was one of the best things I could of ever done during pregnancy and I plan on seeing him after as well! I HIGHLY recommend him if you truly want your body to feel your best during pregnancy or not!"
When we reach our 30’s, 40’s and 50’s the need is how do I function at Peak Performance in my business ventures, family time, personal sports and daily activities? During the years of PEAK PERFORMANCE DEMANDS how do you maintain optimum focus, physical activity, and handle stress (Resilience)? Being in the game requires intention. At CLS we have unique exams, equipment and protocols, specifically, designed for the person who wants to perform at their PEAK; be it the student or professional athlete or high powered business exec. Our center is designed for treatment and high performance. Our approach of Applied Neuro-Science (ANS) makes it one of only a few in the world.
“I’m currently the developer/owner/CEO of a fast moving tech company and have been the President of two of the largest holistic healthcare colleges in the world. I have to be at peak performance as I have a lot of people relying on me for clear direction and decisions. I can’t perform at my best if I have brain fog, lack of energy or nagging symptoms...I just can’t afford these issues. Plus, my position/lifestyle makes me a prime candidate for neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Chiropractic not only helped me with some debilitating health issues that had led to tremors, but in-office visits take just a few minutes each month to keep me productive and able to manage stress. With CLS’s remote patient management system I can handle everything from brain health, focus, positive attitudes, nutrition and exercise outside of my regular visits, which allows me an efficient path to a lifestyle of prevention and being totally present for my family.”
Initial Intensive Care
The goal of IIC is to reduce your symptom or disease through active chiropractic care focused on correcting spinal malfunctions (subluxations), which can interfere with your nervous system and health.
Lower Back Pain/Sciatica
All of the nerves that attach to the lower back also connect to the legs. When there are misalignments in the last five bones of your lower spine this can cause abnormal tension on the nerves. Muscle compensation follows abnormal nerve tension and can cause local pain in the lower back or radiation of pain down one or both legs. Addressing these misalignments with the chiropractic adjustment relieves tension on the nerves and decreases pain and radiation.
"Dr. Paten is one of the best docs I've ever seen-- and that's saying something considering I've seen more than I can count trying to manage back pain and headaches, etc after an injury years ago. Before I started seeing Dr. Paten, I was struggling day to day to do things I normally could due to the pain in my low back and head. Dr. Paten explained everything to me and by using Applied Kinesiology, he helped get me to a pain free place where I can finally get back to a normal life! Anyone who sees Dr. Paten is in the best care possible and I highly recommend him! The absolute best!!"
"I injured my lower back at work, ended up in the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life and unable to walk normally. This greatly concerned me as I’m only 29. After attempting to ease the injury away on my own and being unsuccessful, I turned to Dr. Wes. After a noticeable improvement after the very first visit and additional improvements every day thereafter I’m now MUCH better. His knowledge, expertise, and treatment techniques are all encompassing and he ensures thoroughness in all explanations of what is going on with your body. With his treatments, I’m confident that I will be able to go back to my normal work out routines. I cannot thank him or recommend him enough."
"I was referred to Dr. Paten by a friend who knew how much I was struggling with back pain and rib pain, and knowing that I was seeing many different chiropractors for the same problem. I saw Dr. Paten consistently for a few weeks of care, and I am feeling better than I’ve felt in many years, not only in terms of pain, but I am able to breathe deeper and with ease and noticed improvement in my energy and sleep. I believe his technique, approach, and philosophy all play an important role. I have also taken my children to him and they absolutely love him and had incredible results. I highly recommend Dr. Paten."
"Dr. Wes has been helping me solve the mysteries of my body for the majority of this year. Between his training background & chiropractic education, he has the amazing ability to hone in on the needs of the body to better enhance your performance, reduce your pain level & provide you with resources & tools to help you understand your body along the way. He’s helped me uncover the layers of my physical issues involving pain & neuropathy, to emotional healing that I had no idea was affecting my body as strongly as it was. Who knew my chiropractor could help me on an emotional level!!!! But that is EXACTLY what he’s done. Being under his care has helped me in a very real, personal way. ♥️"
Neck Pain & Shoulder Pain
This often occurs with jobs that require sitting at a computer for long periods, excessive movement, or repetitive movements. When you exhibit poor posture for long periods of time it can cause compensation in the muscles around the neck and shoulders. Whenever there is compensation in the muscles our brain loses the ability to utilize these muscles accurately and optimally. This leads to misaligned joints, which then will inevitably lead to pain. Specifically, adjusting the joints in the neck and shoulders can relieve muscle compensations and reduce pain.
"I was having issues with my arms going numb and couldn’t figure it out, certainly didn’t think it was for a Chiropractor to fix. I WAS SO WRONG!! Dr. Wes has completely fixed the problem and help with so much more!! His knowledge combined with his amazing energy makes you look forward to your next appointments! I highly recommend Dr Wes. Even if you are remotely curious or skeptical... give him 20 minutes and you won’t regret it!!"
"Dr. Wes Paten is one of the most personable doctors that I have ever worked with. Not only does he care about his patients' spines but he also cares about their mental and emotional health! His care has been life changing for me. He has helped me with chronic shoulder pain and digestive discomforts just to name a few things. I would recommend his services to anyone I come across!"
"Dr. Paten is amazing! He is so talented, I have never met anyone that can get to the core issues so quickly. He has helped me beyond what I thought was possible."
The goal is to increase the function of your spine and nervous system, especially your brain health, thus correcting year’s, even decades, of damage and malfunction. Care is often coordinated with healthy lifestyle changes.
Repeated traumas to your brain from as early as childbirth, falls and injuries in children, sports injuries in teens and repetitive trauma to your neck, back and head causes the spine to degenerate through progressive phases. The symptoms from this trauma may not show up in the early stages of degeneration. While many patients consult chiropractic for symptoms, they soon realize that even though the immediate symptoms may go away, the decades of spinal trauma and nerve system decay take longer to correct.
"When I first came in to see Dr. Paten, it was for some nagging headaches and extremely tight neck/shoulder muscle tension. When we did the exam, the trauma to my spinal bones and discs were more than simple misalignment. There was obvious long-standing trauma. My headaches cleared up in a couple of months, but I wanted the underlying problem fixed. We’ve been working on increasing my spinal function and doing a lot of brain health exercises and I can tell it’s affecting my overall health. I’m feeling stronger and staying more healthy than I have in years."

"I’ve been under care as part of my overall life plan of living more naturally and fully. Along with my chiropractic care, I started using the My Lifestyle iQ app that CLS provided me. I”m looking forward to doing the 6 week program on sleep and the 45 Days to Wellness program is awesome. I’m not only feeling better than ever, I can tell my body is strong and healthy.

And btw, my 3 kids are under care and my son is now excelling in school and golf because of the programs at CLS."
Who doesn’t want their family to be healthy? However, the attitudes, behaviors, even where we get our health information from is passed from generation to generation. A recent study found that most young people believe they will be healthier than their parents and yet their behaviors were exactly like their parents. We need to break this cycle or we will continue to see the same health issues repeating. Plus, the attitude that “they will just grow out of it” is false. In fact, as children go through various developmental stages, if they do not realize their optimum innate development at one stage, it means the next stage of development will be incomplete, also. At CLS we’ve designed care for the entire family from birth to 101. We have equipment and protocols to measure brain health markers and can help with learning challenges, support teens through the years of hormonal development as well as giving adults their best options for natural organic health care with no negative side-effects.
Newborns are one of the populations most in need of chiropractic care. As the brain is developing it is important to remove limitations and compensations early so the body can grow optimally. With the trauma from labor, it is very common to see misalignments in a newborn. Commonly these misalignments can present as latching issues, only eating from one side, colic or GERD, ear infections, and sleep disruptions. Most commonly babies require very low-force, specific adjustments at the top of the neck and the lower back. These adjustments remove the interference from brain to body which reduces the symptoms listed above.
"I cannot thank Dr Wes Paten enough for everything he has done for myself and my 2 month old Maleena. I have been struggling with lower back pain and for over 3 years now since the birth of my first born and after seeing him for a month or so my major back pains have gone away. He is so educational and explains in-depth what he is correcting and doing. He makes you feel comfortable, educated on how your body works and things you can do to ultimately fix your issues. I feel so much relief! Maleena my sweet baby was so colicky, would spit up a lot and wouldn’t have a bowel movement for 7-10 dates. She is breastfed and should go regularly. I cut out all dairy and eggs from my diet and yet she was still in pain. Dr Wes helped fix my baby girl!!!! After just a handful of visits, my sweet Maleena is HAPPY! Her digestive system is working normally. She isn’t as colicky anymore ans smiles all the time. She has bowel movements daily now (when the pediatricians said it was normal to not go, I knew they were wrong). I am so beyond thankful for all Dr Wes Paten has done for myself but even more so my sweet little Maleena! He is the best around! Highly recommend him."
"Met with Dr. Paten after a friends recommendation and after learning of the specialization that he has. I have never been more impressed with a doctors knowledge or demeanor! I have a rather rare nerve disorder, which i am a little uncomfortable discussing. Previously, i met with three different doctors who had never even heard of the disorder but Dr Paten knew quite a lot about it immediately and began discussing treatment options right away. I felt comfortable talking to him about it, he put me at ease right away! I would recommend him to anyone! in fact he has been treating my 4 month old daughter since the day she was born! Her first adjustment was 2 hours after delivery. FYI, she’s been sleeping 9 hours a night straight since she was 2 months old…"
