Dr. Kathy Meyer
Chiropractic care is drug-free and focuses on the biomechanics of our bodies. It is a mechanical solution to a mechanical problem focusing on joints and the spine as well as the overall connection to the body's nervous system. While chiropractic care is typically associated with the neck and back pain, it is also very effective in treating a much wider range of healthcare issues including migraines and headaches, repetitive injuries, sciatica, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, knee, ankle, wrist, elbow and shoulder discomfort or mobility issues, and injuries from falls, sports, and auto accidents. Dr. Meyer has completed advanced studies in extremities. She combines manipulative techniques with a cold laser treatment to promote healing.
Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy
Dr. Jess Svingen
Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) can effectively treat conditions that impact the musculoskeletal system, digestive system, nervous system and the immune system. Techniques used by Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs) include stretching, gentle pressure and resistance on a patient's muscles and joints. These techniques realign the body and restore balance to bones and muscles allowing the body to work more effectively. OMT is used to treat many ailments including asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines, insomnia, sciatica and repetitive sports injuries and can help patients of all ages.
Non-Surgical Pain Management

Epidural Corticosteroid Injections, which reduce inflammation and expand nerve passages
Radio Frequency Ablation to heat up a pain producing nerve, thereby reducing pain signals
Nerve Testing to identify the pain-causing nerve and facilitate the development of a pain treatment plan
