Common Questions Answered by Dr. Wells

1) How is Better Health Chiropractic & Physical Rehab different from every other chiropractic clinic I’ve seen?

There are several ways our Better Health facilities are different:

  • We offer full-scale chiropractic care and physical therapy under one roof.
  • We offer a 10-Minute Promise, which means if you wait for more than 10-minutes for a regular appointment, it’s free.
  • We also offer a First Visit Promise, meaning if you aren’t satisfied with your first visit, it’s free.
  • Our Same Day Promise ensures that, if you call us to book an appointment before 4 p.m., we’ll get you into the clinic that very same day. You won’t have to wait in pain for days to be seen.
  • Our Get a Ride promise is also unique to Better Health. If you miss an appointment for want of a ride, just let us know. We’ll get you a ride so you don’t miss an appointment again.

2) What is the Alaska Back Pain Protocol and how was it created?

The ABPP is a unique back pain treatment system I implemented in 2000 after many years of dealing with my own back issues and my training as a doctor of chiropractic. It combines chiropractic care, non-surgical spinal decompression, rehabilitative therapy, and massage therapy.  Using the protocols first studied in the early years of spinal decompression machines in the 90’s and early 2000’s, we were able to improve outcomes significantly by adding chiropractic and physical rehab to the therapy regimen.

The exact protocol is different for each patient, but it’s a safe and effective framework for treating back pain.

3) Why should I trust you?

I think trust is best shown by proof. Since the founding of Better Health, we’ve treated 64,926 conditions, helped 21,790 patients, and currently hold a 5-star overall review rating from 917 reviewers. This, combined with 23 years of experience, is why those in pain trust us to help them.

4) What does Better Health Chiropractic & Physical Rehab value?

We have 10 core values that drive us at Better Health. However, our biggest values are honesty/integrity & openness. Too often members of the medical community are poor communicators. At Better Health, we know communication is the basis for a great and lasting relationship, and great relationships are what we aim for!

5) Where have I seen Better Health Chiropractic & Physical Rehab before?

We have been a part of the Alaskan community since 1998, so chances are you’ve seen some of our signs or advertisements. You may know other previous business names such as Better Health Pain & Wellness Centers and Better Health Chiropractic & Physical Therapy- but we’ve always remained Better Health. We are also involved in the community and have a strong presence online. I also write a lot of articles across the internet, such as Dr. Axe, LifeHack and many others — nearly a thousand to date.

7) What are your outside interests?

I’m a lifelong learner, so when I’m not at work, spending time with my wonderful family, exercising, taking flying lessons, reading non-fiction, at a community function, or I’m furthering my education. I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, and I also play a bit of blues/rock guitar with my son Colton on drums- which is pure enjoyment for me. I also volunteer for the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Foundation, and we support many charities both personally and professionally.



Founder Dr. Brent Wells opened the doors of Better Health Chiropractic & Physical Rehab in 1998, after seeing the need for a multi-disciplinary clinic where Alaskans could receive a full range of effective, conservative treatments from an experienced, friendly staff in a comfortable, compassionate environment. Since then, we’ve helped thousands of Alaskans, driven by our commitment to help without invasive surgical procedures.

We plan to continue to expand Better Health to reach more Alaskans wherever they may be.

Our Company’s Goals

Throughout our history, we strive to: Offer our patients the most effective, technologically advanced treatments, be the leading provider of chiropractic care and physical rehabilitation in Alaska, and address patient concerns quickly and consistently. In short, we are progressive, we care, and we listen.
