Hidden Gems: Meet Sydney Bickmeyer of Powerhouse Chiropractic

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sydney Bickmeyer.

Hi Sydney, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
When I was 15 my dad took me on a work trip to a chiropractic seminar after telling him I didn’t want to be a chiropractor. I was searching out my options for the medical field. Before deciding what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, he told me I should tag along with him on this trip. During the first speaking session of the seminar, I was mind-blown. I had no idea that chiropractic was about so much more than neck and back pain. I sat there in my seat, amazed but also frustrated. How could I have been adjusted since birth and not realized the true healing powers of chiropractic care? It was at that moment that my drive began.

Fast forward to high school graduation, and I decided to forgo the “college experience” to save money and time toward my ultimate goal of chiropractic school. I earned my associate’s Degree at my local community college in Missouri in 18 months while working full time, then transferred to Life University in Georgia to complete my undergrad and work on my doctorate concurrently. At age 24, I graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic with two classes shy of completing a post-graduate program in pediatrics.

During my time in life, I went on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic, where we went into elementary schools, and one by one, classes would file in to get adjusted. It was there that I realized I wanted to become a pediatric chiropractor. I realized that the impact chiropractic has on kids is undeniable and that I wanted to be a part of it.

Also, I knew I wanted to open my practice while in school. The thought of doing it right out of school never really scared me. I knew that one of the biggest decisions I had to make was deciding where that would be. Missouri and Georgia were not screaming to me as a forever home, so I decided to pick 3 places I had never been and explore them! There was no doubt when I landed at the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport that I was in my future home. The people were friendly, the weather was hot, and the nature was nothing like I had ever seen. Two years later, here I am in Gilbert, Arizona, about to open my doors to Powerhouse Chiropractic.

We all face challenges, but would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Chiropractic school is tough, and through the journey, I learned to lean on my community and to ask for help when I needed it—now, being in a new city has proved to be a little bit harder. I have learned to do many things on my own and research the correct terminology when reaching out to professionals. Often seeking help consists of people not taking me very seriously as a young girl just trying to follow her dream. Although this tactic will never fix the problem 100%, I lean through the hard times, knowing one day I will walk into the room and people will know to take me very seriously because they will have witnessed what I’ve built by being that young girl just trying to follow her dream.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk about your work. What should we know?
I created the Powerhouse as a space for women and children to reconnect to their power source. A mother is a powerhouse for her baby. I want us all to feel like powerhouses: to live like we are truly living.

We are a nervous system-centered chiropractic office. What does that mean? It means we are restoring the connection between the brain and the rest of the body through the adjustment. When the brain can communicate and receive information better, the body can adapt to its environment as designed!

We specialize in pediatrics and women’s health. I am most passionate about caring for newborns because I know the impact chiropractic care can have on their growth and development trajectory. I also love talking about female hormones and how caring for our hormone health can improve fertility and help us create generational health! I am Webster certified to care for pregnant women and can’t wait to start helping new or soon-to-be mamas!

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
During Covid, I learned to create. I was constantly going to school clubs, seminars, and networking events. With all those things coming to a halt during covid, it allowed me to have some extra time back. I was able to get creative again. I painted my room, wrote my first poem, learned acro yoga, cooked new foods, and really took that extra time to explore my creative side.
