Chiropractor Oakdale MN
When it comes to choosing a chiropractor, the options seem endless. That is why at Big Idea, our mission is to break through the clutter and share with you our vision for our patients.
Why "Big Idea?"
The developer of chiropractic, BJ Palmer, introduced the profession as the “Big Idea” in which a small adjustment by a chiropractor can have a BIG impact on one’s health. We like to call it the “I Have a Dream” speech of chiropractic. Palmer’s “idea” has grown into an art and science that is now practiced worldwide. We hope to instill this sense of “going BIG” within our patients as they continue to heal and grow through chiropractic care. The results may surprise you!
The Gonstead Difference
Our clinic specializes in the Gonstead System which is a scientific, logical approach of chiropractic care. Full spine X-rays are taken at the first visit on most patients. These X-rays are methodically analyzed and compared with the spinal exam. This allows us to construct a plan tailored just for you! Periodic exams and X-rays are taken to track changes and improvements in order to optimize the efficacy of the adjustments. At each visit, a thermal scan of your spine will be performed to find points of inflammation or “hot spots” caused by nerve impingement, allowing us to pinpoint regions in need of attention. Static palpation confirms tender areas, heat, swelling, and changes in muscle tone due to spinal misalignments. Adjustments are gentle and performed in a way that minimizes twisting and maximizes results.
A Stable Foundation
A unique feature of our clinic is its focus on gait. Just as a house built on a rock can weather the storm, so the stability of the spine depends on the integrity of its base. Watching your gait, or walking stride, allows us to see how best to adjust your ankles, knees, hips, back, and even shoulders so you leave feeling stable and balanced. Healing is in the details. Balanced motion slows the aging process and inhibits arthritis from forming. Joints that move well stay healthy and young!
