Our services are based on two main objectives – to offer personalized treatments tailored to individual patients based on comprehensive evaluation and to educate our patients and our community about health and wellness best practices. Our team is educated and experienced in Chiropractic care and Massage Therapy and work toward providing the best possible care for our patients.
Before beginning treatments, Chiropractic Adjustments from Hedlund Chiropractic are based on a comprehensive evaluation to determine the source of a patient’s discomfort and the correct plan of action. Our treatment plans are also based off x-rays taken of the entire back – not just x-rays of where you are experiencing pain. This is because we understand that a patient’s source of discomfort is not always directly located in the area of their pain; for instance, back issues can be the result of problems in the neck, and vice versa.
Customized treatment is the foundation of the chiropractic care you will find at Hedlund Chiropractic. Based on the clinical expertise and experience of our team, we offer a wide variety of chiropractic techniques and methods to get you back into life.
Massage Therapy Department
Our Massage Therapy Department provides treatments based on team discussions about your individual needs. Dr. Hedlund sits with the team every day to discuss different strategies that will achieve the best results for the patient. In working directly with Dr. Hedlund, our Massage Therapists have prior knowledge about a patient’s health before beginning therapy. We offer both deep tissue and soft tissue massages customized by Dr. Hedlund and the Hedlund team.
Custom Foot Orthotics
Improper footing can result in increased fatigue and degenerative arthritis, as well as pain in the ankles, knees, hips, and back. Over time, it can even affect the way you walk and move.
At Hedlund Chiropractic, you can benefit from our customized foot orthotics. We customize each fitting to the patient, instead of choosing the closest option out of a few different sizes. To do this, we use a digital scan of your foot to create your one-of-a-kind fitting.
Each of our custom orthotics comes with a 100% money back guarantee. We are not in the business of selling products — we provide custom care, and we want it to work for you.
We Offer X-Rays
An x-ray of your entire spine provides a blueprint of your spinal structure. If you only look at one region, you may be missing out one of the key elements to correcting your structure. This tells us where TO adjust and what NOT to adjust. We are one of the few facilities in the region that can perform full spine x-rays. Many doctors will take an x-ray of where the pain is located. We look outside of that region to determine if other areas may be contributing to your problem region. If the rudder of a ship is off, the front of the ship will move in the wrong direction. If your neck is out of alignment, it can be affecting your back and vise versa. More importantly, an x-ray allows the doctor to have a full clinical picture of what is going on underneath; just like listening to your heart with a stethoscope vs checking your pulse on your wrist. Knowing what is going on underneath is important, especially when dealing with your spine.
Although we do not have the equipment to conduct an MRI, we are happy to review MRI scans taken at other clinics at no charge. Dr. Hedlund has a certificate in Spinal MRI and is trained in examining them.
Not all exercises or stretches are created equal. While one exercise or stretch may be beneficial for you, it may not be beneficial for another. While someone may require a strengthening exercise, another may require a stretching exercise. Perfect practice doesn’t make perfect, practice perfect makes perfect! In other words, if you are not doing the exercise or stretch perfectly or correctly, you may be causing more harm than good. Different muscle imbalances can develop based on your personal habits or work routine. In addition to chiropractic care, we provide our patients with specific exercises and stretches to improve their muscle imbalances and provide them with different options to combat those imbalances. There is more than one way to stretch a muscle!
