Melynda Donais, Chiropractic assistant
Ms. Donais holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration (2010). She started her studies by completing a college diploma in human resources (2004). Then, she carried on by completing a second college diploma in commercial business administration (2007). During her studies, she worked for five years as a receptionist and stylist in an optician’s office. Thereafter, she worked two years in a dental clinic, first as a secretary, but then, less than three months into that job, she was promoted to administrative assistant. She has developed valuable healthcare experience and expertise in management. Since her arrival at Clinique Solution Santé Chiropratique, she has continued to acquire skills and knowledge by taking part in various trainings and seminars with Dr. Pascal Paquet, chiropractor, D.C., and the well known Dr. Parker (2013).
Her chiropractic history
After a car accident, she was diagnosed with a cervical-thoracic-lumbar sprain, which means neck, shoulder and back pain. Her condition restricted her from standing for long periods of time, despite that being a requirement for her job. This meant that normal tasks, like carrying grocery bags, would cause her real pain. Since she never liked to take painkillers, she tried physiotherapy, which provided her with temporary relief. Then, traditional medicine sent her to occupational therapy and sports medicine, where she saw even better results, but which were still only short-lived. At last, a friend told her about chiropractic medicine. Even though specialists discouraged it, and her family told her horror stories about it, she gave it a shot. She has been able to clearly see the difference in the approach, that being chiropractic treats the causes instead of the symptoms. Only a few treatments were necessary for her to experience a real difference. Due to conflicts in her schedule, she transferred to Clinique Solution Santé Chiropratique where she joined our team a year later. For Mélynda, chiropractic is more than a treatment, it is a lifestyle.
Her job at the Clinique Solution Santé Chiropratique
Like many people, Ms. Donais discovered chiropractic accidentally because the usual treatments were not working and she was looking for a drug-free solution. Her personal experience made her aware of how doubts and fears make us feel bad. She can answer your questions, listen to your fears and help you. She is dedicated; she focuses on your needs and puts all of her energy into helping you find your optimal health. Her goal is to ensure that you have a pleasant experience. Her favourite quote reflects this attitude: “Everyone that comes to you needs to leave a better and happier person.” [Translation]. She works alongside Dr. Pascal Paquet, chiropractor, D.C., helping him with x-rays, treatments and chiropractic exams, all while taking care of patient files and follow-ups. If you have the time to take few minutes to relax after your treatment, she will even cover you up with some very comfortable blankets. She is a pillar of the amazing customer service you will receive at the Clinique Solution Santé Chiropratique.
