We would like to extend a warm welcome the newest member of the Northwoods Health Centre team, Dr. Shaylin Prout. Shaylin grew up in Thunder Bay and has been an active member of the community her entire life. As an avid athlete and tennis player, Shaylin pursued a scholarship opportunity to play tennis in the United States. She graduated with top honors from Bemidji State University and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science. During her time as a student-athlete, Shaylin experienced various sports injuries however she was able to stay healthy and continue to compete through regular chiropractic care. Shaylin describes the impact that chiropractic care had, “Chiropractic care helped me to feel my best and I was amazed at how a gentle, hands-on approach assisted me to resolve my aches and pains.” Her success with chiropractic care as a patient peeked her interest in it as a career and as they say the rest is history. Shaylin was fortunate to spend time observing a number of chiropractors in the Bemidji area and that lead her to Chiropractic School in Bloomington, Minnesota.
In September 2016, Shaylin began the Doctor of Chiropractic program at Northwestern Health Sciences University. She focused most of her time at school working with the general population, but has additional training and interest in working with pediatric patients, children and pregnant/post-partum mothers. Shaylin is well-versed in various chiropractic techniques, and is excited to offer Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, Cupping Therapy as well as other soft tissue therapies.
For the final trimester of her schooling, Shaylin spent three months as an intern with Dr. Peterson here at NWHC. She was able to observe, participate in patient care and get to know many of the familiar faces around our clinic. In December, Dr. Prout graduated Cum Laude from Northwestern Health Sciences University. Shaylin is extremely excited to be joining our team at Northwoods Health Centre and she is welcoming New Patients beginning January 13, 2020.
