My chiropractic practice is located at 5603 Chicago Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55417 within the Spark Wellness clinic.  There is a beautiful waiting area where you can sit and enjoy some tea, read an interesting book or magazine, or browse the awesome retail selection before or after your appointment.

After a thorough assessment, custom tailored chiropractic adjusting techniques are applied specifically chosen based on your preference and presentation.  Some possible treatment options include manual “hands-on” diversified adjusting, pelvic blocking, drop piece, activator and other light force procedures.  Adjustments can be performed to any restricted joint in the body, including the spine as well as along the arms and legs all the way down to the fingers and toes!

I am not currently in network with any insurance companies.  My practice is self-pay at time of service.   This allows me to better serve you by spending more of my time and energy on direct patient care and health promotion and less on paperwork and phone calls with insurance companies. I am happy to provide you with a super bill that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement, if you have out-of-network benefits.  Cash and major credit card are accepted forms of payment (HSA and flex spending accounts are gladly accepted).

$100 Initial Chiropractic Visit– lasts about 1 hour (more or less depending on complexity).  This visit includes a discussion of health history, a physical exam including range of motion and postural assessment, orthopedic and neurological screening tests and a hands-on examination of the area of concern.  At this point I review the exam findings and treatment plan with you and unless there are any concerning factors requiring imaging or referral, some muscle work and chiropractic adjustment are administered.

$40 Basic Routine Chiropractic Visit – focused on addressing your specific concern within the basic 15 minute appointment window.  The Basic visit may include full spinal adjusting with some limited muscle work, or a treatment session focused specifically on an extremity (arm/leg) or a region of the spine with more extensive muscle work.

When booking a chiropractic session, additional appointment time may be added on at the time of booking (or at the time of the appointment, if the schedule allows) for $20/15 minutes up to the first hour. In other words, available increments begin at $40 for the first 15 minutes of chiropractic care, $60 for the first 30 minutes, $80 for the first 45 minutes and $100 for the first 60 minutes. Beyond the first hour, pricing then moves to $100/hour rounded to the nearest quarter hour.

This system of pricing and scheduling puts the control in your hands as to how much time and money you would like to spend on particular goals.  I will always give recommendations as to what I think will give you the best results, but the choice is always made by the CEO of your health… YOU!

Additional Information:

During your chiropractic visit, I may recommend soft tissue work, postural exercises or nutritional support in conjunction with chiropractic adjusting to best address your particular presentation.   Here are some details about what those services may entail.

Soft Tissue Work:  The muscles, tendons and fascia all impact your structure and your ability to move freely and comfortably.  If there is soft tissue involvement in your presentation it is very helpful to include soft tissue work in your treatment for best results.  Soft tissue work can include some massage like strokes, holding pressure over knots (trigger point work), rolling out muscles with a roller stick, cross-friction massage to bring fresh blood flow and to break up old knotted tissue (Graston/Gua Sha), and hands on active and myofascial release work where different contacts are held and you may move parts of your body through different ranges of motion.

Webster Technique:  Webster technique is a very specific way of analyzing the position and motion of the pelvic bones.  This can have particular utility for pregnant women due to the ligamentous attachments of the uterus to the pelvic bones, particularly the sacrum.  If you are pregnant, or are planning on becoming pregnant and want to know more about how the Webster technique may be helpful to you through pregnancy and birth, please email or call me and I am happy to spend some time talking about the technique and answering questions.

Personally Prescribed Postural and Rehabilitative Exercises:  Yoga postures, Pilates exercises, postural and rehabilitative exercises are chosen based upon your concerns and presentation.  Postural awareness exercises may also be given.  Better posture helps you to feel and look better! Commit to aging gracefully and preventing postural imbalances by choosing to learn how to lovingly care for your physical form.

Nutritional Support:  If you are looking for practical ways to determine what sort of diet and supplementation best support you and your goals, then nutritional support sessions are for you!  The recommendations provided establish whole, nutrient dense foods as your base of support, then fill in with supplementation as indicated.  My thought process involving nutrition is informed by Weston A. Price Foundation, the GAPS diet, low inflammatory and low allergenic potential food choices and Paleo/Primal-ish diets with an emphasis on lots of plant material and organic/pastured/humanely raised/locally sourced food as much as possible.  Whether you are embarking on an elimination diet to identify potential food sensitivities or are looking to build a basic healthy nutritional foundation for you and your family, you will find the support that you seek.
