Meet The Doctors...

Dr. Jamie Showersabout-drshowers

Welcome! I am Dr. Jamie Showers.  I grew up next door to Jefferson City in Holts Summit, and I attended Jefferson City High School where I played varsity basketball as a Lady Jay.  I will still on occasion play a little basketball, but my current passion is running.  I enjoy running local 5Ks and participating in half marathons.  My husband, Bobby Showers, and I have two beautiful daughters, Madeline and Ella.  We enjoy spending our weekends supporting local sports and attending MU basketball and football games.  We are also fortunate that our families live close by, so we are able to spend weekends with them.

Following high school, I played college basketball and completed two years of undergraduate work at William Woods University in Fulton, Missouri.  Afterward, I transferred to the University of Missouri – Columbia, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, graduating Summa Cum Laude as the valedictorian of my graduating class. I practiced as a Registered Nurse at both St. Mary’s Health Center and Boone Hospital Center, where I gained nursing experience in medical, surgical, operating room, and neonatal intensive care.

Following my nursing career, I enrolled at Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and a Doctorate of Chiropractic, again graduating Summa Cum Laude as the valedictorian of my graduating class.  My internship experience in chiropractic school included treating disabled veterans in a local veterans’ hospital and working in an obstetric and gynecology clinic where I treated pregnant women with musculoskeletal problems.

I have completed postgraduate work in myofascial release, tempomandibular rehabilitation, and the treatment of pediatric and pregnancy patients.  I have also received acupuncture training through Acupuncture Society of America, an affiliate of Logan College of Chiropractic, and I am board certified in meridian therapy, acupressure, and acupuncture.

Following graduation from Logan College of Chiropractic, I returned to Jefferson City and began my chiropractic practice.  My chiropractic experiences and nursing background have allowed me to better understand patient problems and to provide nurturing and effective treatment. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to improve the health and well-being of so many people, and I look forward to helping you!

Dr. Darek Funk

123_1Welcome! I am Dr. Darek Funk. I made Jefferson City my home and joined Showers Family and Sports Chiropractic in September of 2016. I am originally from a small town in Seneca, Kansas so making the move to Jefferson City did not seem too far from home.  I have found it easy to continue to enjoy my hobbies of traveling, exercising, kayaking and camping in Jefferson City and the surrounding areas.

Following graduation from high school I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology from Kansas State University and then continued my education at Cleveland College of Chiropractic in Kansas City.  After graduating in 2014 with my Doctorate of Chiropractic, I returned home where I practiced chiropractic for 2 years.  When my significant other, Kally, accepted a respiratory therapy position near the area I began my search for a clinic nearby.  I chose Showers Family and Sports Chiropractic because I found that Dr. Showers’ passion for her patients, gentle style of treatment and her integrative approach closely matched my personal and professional ideals.

I am advanced certified in gentle, low force adjusting techniques, specifically Activator Method, but also practice traditional chiropractic care.  Additional treatments I offer include muscle work, kinesiotaping, and therapeutic exercise to improve patient care and outcomes.

I am excited to be in Jefferson City and at Showers Family and Sports Chiropractic and look forward to serving this community.
