Chiropractic is the largest and best recognized alternative medicine profession. Chiropractors practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care. They have broad diagnositc skills and may also be trained to recommend therapuetic and rehabilitative excercises, as well as dietary and lifestyle counseling. Their schooling includes a four year undergraduate degree and four more years of professional study at an accredited chiropractic college.

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Dr. Andrew Bakken can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs. The research done by Metagenics and First Line Therapy have convinced us the nutritional supplements they produce are top of the line.
Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of soft tissue therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
