In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With chiropractic care, your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .
If you are in pain when you come into our Fargo chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning. It is typical to need chiropractic care or adjustments about 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

I was pregnant when I first went into Dakota Clinic of Chiropractic and was having problems with my middle back going numb, my hips and a sharp pain going down my left leg (sciatic) and headaches. my husband would have to pick me up off the bed and help me stand up so i can get my day going. I would walk into work walking like i had been riding a horse all day long! I started seeing results within the first month of seeing Dr. Christenson. I was able to stand longer at work and actually get off the bed without my husbands help.I would have put my self on bed rest if it wasn't for Dr. Christenson and his team.
Dr. Christenson and his staff are very personable. They greet me and my kids, by name, every time I walk in the door. I have also received a birthday card and a congratulations card on my new baby girls arrival. He's professional and does everything he can do to make you feel comfortable. Definitely a life changing place!
