We have enjoyed sharing about the history of stem cells and now we want to take an opportunity to share the history of our clinic. In 2010, Dr. Marksfeld had a vision of creating an integrated clinic to utilize both medical and alternative procedures. He started the NW Pain Institute, which combined his love for chiropractic therapies, laser/decompression therapies, and medical injections. Dr. Tom Kessinger became the chiropractor for the clinic and has been providing excellent patient care ever since.
Due to injuries from a car accident, Dr. Marksfeld sold the clinic to a close business partner of his, Dr. Schneider. In 2014, Dr. Schneider hired Hannah and later, Amber, and renamed the clinic the NW Pain Relief Center. He integrated his philosophies about healing by merging with similar clinics up in northern Washington. Dr. Schneider brought many powerful healing techniques to the clinic and implemented the use of stem cell therapy in his treatment protocols. A few years later, Dr. Schneider partnered with 2 other chiropractors to further expand clinic aims. The clinics were primarily located in northern Washington and Alaska. It was during this time that Morgan joined our team.
Because the Vancouver location was very far away from their other clinics, Stephanie Jones, the clinic’s nurse practitioner, was given the opportunity to purchase the clinic on 9/16/17. She established an independent clinic with a new name: Pain Relief Partners. This name reflects the goal of partnering with the patient and other providers in the community to provide the best care possible to help people find pain relief. Stephanie also had the opportunity to change the type of stem cells used in our clinic, and we have seen tremendous results using Wharton’s Jelly Stem Cells. Pain Relief Partners specializes in treating back pain, joint pain, neuropathies, symptoms of autoimmune diseases (lupus, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.), and symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, etc.). We treat our patients using stem cells, other types of medical injections, nonsurgical spinal decompression, laser, light therapies, chiropractic, and more. We believe in working together to reduce narcotic dependency in our area while offering patients a hope for healing. As the clinic grew, Stephanie hired Cindy and Raychel, who excitedly joined the team in hopes of providing the most comprehensive care possible. Stephanie and Dr. Kessinger collaborate with the each other, the patient, and our team to provide thorough care for each and every patient.
Now we are able to announce the achievement of one of our first year goals: our move to a new building in a more central location! This September 2018, Pain Relief Partners is celebrating its first birthday and will be relocating to a clinic on Mill Plain and 131st. We are so excited about this move and want to share the joy with our patients. Our team will be working tirelessly to ensure the new location is the best it can be for you, our patients. Our clinic will be closed September 3 through September through September 6 in order to prepare to welcome our patients. We will host a ribbon cutting during the third week of September and would love for you to celebrate with us! Please see below for details. We are so excited about our new location and look forward to seeing you there!
