Different Approach To Chiropractic Care

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - When you schedule a chiropractic appointment you may prepare yourself for a little cracking and twisting of your body. 

But if you're looking to avoid that form of treatment and try a different approach, a local office in Sioux Falls may be able to help. 

This isn't your typical chiropractic office.

All you need is an app on your phone to check in and find your exam room. 

"It takes me 5 minutes and I love it because I can change my appointment day," Crystal Christensen said. 

Christensen battled with migraines for 10 years, trying multiple treatments including acupuncture and botox. But it wasn't until she came here that she found relief.

"I had been to a chiropractor before, but I never remember having an X-ray done, so that was one of the first things that they did when I came in," Christensen said.

Dr. Nate DeJong uses pre-and post X-ray images to show the changes taking place.

"We utilize that technology to assess and track objectively to make sure that things are improving and we can see the spine improving," DeJong said. 

"I can't even tell you how much I just feel so much more relief now. I haven't had a migraine in months," Christensen said.

But DeJong isn't just here to treat patients, he's here to educate them. 

"We explain what's normal, what's not, what's the approach that we take, how do we adjust, why are things different, so then that way when they actually receive the care for the first time they're very comfortable with the process," DeJong said.

You can say goodbye to the usual cracking and twisting you're used to getting at the chiropractor, and hello to torque release technique. 

It provides an adjustment with the help of an instrument called The Integrator, eliminating the need for cracking. 

"We focus on neurologically based chiropractic corrective care. So when you hear that word neurologically based it can kind of spark some thought. So what that really means is we focus on optimizing the function of the nervous system," DeJong said. 

He says by getting to the root of the problem you can find relief.

"It's very non-invasive, it's in and out. I love it," Christensen said.
