Dr. Latimer, who graduated from Wenatchee High School, returned his family to the valley in 2002 and has been successfully treating patients since then.
After getting his chiropractic doctorate degree - a process that took 10 rather than six years since he waffled between journalism and pre-med in his undergrad studies and had to start over again after realizing sports reporting was not conducive to family time on evenings and weekends - he completed his sports medicine internship at a clinic in Vancouver, Wash. That clinic successfully integrated the five parts of the healing cycle - medical, chiropractic, physical therapy, occupational therapy and massage. The results for the patients was excellent, he said.
"They were pioneers of the multi-disciplinary approach. They did a great job," he said. "I worked there eight years. I don't know any other way to practice." He became an associate in the practice and the clinic manager.
When the pull of family prompted a return to the Wenatchee Valley, he couldn't take the clinic with him. The next best thing was to put all he learned there into his own practice.
He started with a two-room office in East Wenatchee, but space was tight, limiting the services he could provide.
A couple years later, a tip from a patient led to his first expansion, transforming about 1,000 square feet of warehouse space at 739 S. Mission into an adjustment room, massage room and small gym for physical therapy.
