Meet Our Practitioners


Jeremy Maxwell, D.C.

I grew up in Pleasanton, CA and graduated from Amador Valley High School in 1992. I then attended York College in York, NE on a soccer scholarship to attain my undergraduate studies in pre-chiropractic. It was in York where I met my wife Shelby, who is from Rhinelander, WI. I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic and went on to open my own practice in Fayette, MO from April 2001 through June 2018, and now practice in Columbia, MO since 2005. Shelby and I have four wonderful children: Aiden, Myya, Emilia, and Zechman. 

I absolutely love what I have been called to do, and that is to help family's maximize their health potential through Chiropractic and through The Wellness Way. No other profession gets to intimately work with the innate healing potential the Creator placed in each of us like the Chiropractic profession. Every day we get to witness lives changing and health improving by turning on the power of the human body through spinal corrections and removing stressors. When the brain and body can talk without interruption, the Creator's design of continual self healing can be expressed.


We look forward to the opportunity of sharing our passion for living full and healthy lives.

James Hamilton, D.C.

My chiropractic story started with my mom. She had been suffering from chronic migraines, and fortunately our neighbor recommended my mom to try their chiropractor. After she found relief from her daily migraines my family began regular maintenance care with an upper cervical chiropractor. When we moved to Salisbury, MO, we continued care with Dr. Jeremy Maxwell. 

While I was in high school I made the decision to pursue Chiropractic as a career. I attended undergrad at North Lake College in Irving, TX, and Parker University for chiropractic training. At Parker I received my Bachelor's Degree in Human Anatomy, and in Health and Wellness. In 2017 I graduated with my Doctorate of Chiropractic and then practiced in Salina, KS. In December of 2018 I saw Dr. Jeremy's Ad looking for an associate and I decided it was time to come back home. 


Connie Tebbe, R.N. 

Mid-Missouri has been home for me my entire life.   I married my high school sweet heart and we have 2 amazing children that have families of their own.  We also, have a set of amazing twin grandsons that we adore. 

My passion to help people has always been very important to me.  That is where my nursing career began and I worked in that role for many years.  Fast forward to 2018 where I began to experience daily pain and other health changes.  I knew that I did not want to end up going down the path of medications on a daily basis just to get through my day.  I knew what that meant for my quality of life and how that would affect my ability to help my family and others going forward.  Medications have negative effects on the body that I was not willing accept and I knew that as a nurse.  I had also seen how that affected others around me.

I have been a chiropractic patient of Jeremy Maxwell for many years.  Jeremy had mentioned The Wellness Way to me and I began learning more about this awesome and powerful perspective on health and the bodies’ ability to heal given the right tools!  What a revelation that was to me!  That is where my own journey to wellness began in June of 2018.  This renewed my excitement to learn more and so I attended The Wellness Way Academy.  Completed that training this past August.   I am so excited to begin my journey as a Wellness Way Practitioner!  I have seen so many positive changes in my own health and the health of others.  This is what true health and prevention looks like!  I want to give others hope and guide them toward TRUE WELLNESS!!!

It’s literally a dream come true be able to work beside an awesome team of professionals such as The Wellness Way Columbia Missouri team! 



Making a difference one life at a time


Here at The Wellness Way Columbia we are dedicated to finding the answers you need. Our approach is centered around one of the major principles of chiropractic care: The Three T's.

Traumas are events both big and small that effect your physical body.

Toxins are external substances that invade your body and compromise the function of key systems.

Thoughts are patterns of beliefs that inform mental and emotional distress both consciously and unconsciously. 

Our Philosophy

At The Wellness Way we take illness and disease seriously. Our motto is: Do Health Differently

Once we discover the root cause of your sickness, we love nothing better than to see your symptoms disappear as the cause of your illness is eliminated. No matter what the health problem is, don't surrender to a life of pain and misery until you see us. There is hope!

Our clinics use The Wellness Way approach to assess and treat your health concerns. Perhaps you have experienced being examined by a doctor, having blood tests done, x-rays and other diagnostic tests taken, only for your doctor to report back that all your tests are normal. Yet, you know something is wrong. 

Unfortunately, this experience is all too common. Most physicians are trained to look only in specific places for the answers, using some familiar labs or diagnostic tests. Yet, many causes of illness cannot be found in these places. The usual tests do not look for food allergies, hidden infections, environmental toxins, mold exposures, nutritional deficiencies, and metabolic imbalances.

We use a variety of innovative testing techniques and procedures to help our patients prevent illness and recover from many chronic and difficult to treat conditions. Our clinicians are highly skilled in evaluating and assessing chronic problems such as fibromyalgia, fatigue syndromes, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory disorders, mood and behavior disorders, memory problems, heart disease, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, autism, and other chronic complex conditions.
