Restore, maintain and optimize your body.

Experiencing pain and discomfort in different parts of your body can drastically affect your quality of life. For instance, chronic and acute pain can change your sleeping patterns and disrupt your daily tasks. 

In particular, conditions like arthritis and scoliosis can affect your mobility and make it hard to perform things you used to do easily. Simply standing and walking can feel taxing if you leave musculoskeletal disorders untreated. Moreover, these conditions can make you reliant on pain medications and may even trigger feelings of anxiety and depression. 

Chiropractic care and physical therapy can help you manage pain and treat various conditions ranging from ankle injuries to an achy upper back. At LifeClinic of Chanhassen, our chiropractors and physical therapists will identify the cause of your pain. We’ll provide the right treatment plan to help you restore mobility, maintain health and wellness, and optimize overall body function.

By working with and being certified in CrossFit Level 1, RockTape level 2, Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP), Titleist Performance Institute Medical Level 2 (TPI), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM), cupping and dry needling, he tries to find the best tool for each patient to get the results they are wanting.
