What is Chiropractic Medicine?

Chiropractic care is based on the understanding that the human body is naturally inclined to maintain a state of health and well-being. When the musculoskeletal system and spine are properly aligned with the nervous system, tissues and organs can function properly.

When the spinal bones are not properly aligned, they create pressure on the spinal nerves and block proper nerve signal transmission. These subluxations are known to alter the normal function of cells, tissues and organs, creating a complex of symptoms and changes in function. Over time, these changes can result in chronic pain, loss of function, and loss of optimal health.

Chiropractic care is widely accepted in the medical field as a leading approach to non-drug, non-surgical intervention for neck and back pain.

Chiropractors complete a minimum of six years of university and clinical training. Additionally, they must pass a state board examination to become licensed Doctors of Chiropractic in Minnesota. As the only healthcare professionals trained to diagnose and treat subluxations of the spine, Doctors of Chiropractic can specialize in many fields of study.

Currently, Doctors of Chiropractic can specialize in: Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Neurology, Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Nutrition, Sports Medicine, Geriatrics, and Veterinary Care.

We believe our patients should have a clear understanding of chiropractic care and the professionals with our clinic.
