I can honestly say that I never thought I could feel any better with the back pain that I have consistently had over the last 5 years. A completely different approach to what traditional chiropractic care looks like and it worked!! Highly recommend to anyone experiencing long term pain !!

Restore, maintain and optimize your body.
A chronic condition or physical injury can drastically change your lifestyle. Any of these medical issues can cause various symptoms such as persistent pain and limited mobility that can affect your quality of life.
Experiencing pain and a limited range of motion can make simple movement or performing simple tasks challenging. They can even affect your emotional well-being and other activities. You might give up a favorite hobby, change your career, and make lifestyle changes to cope with your condition, for instance.

LifeClinic of Laguna also offers Pilates physical therapy to help you stay active during your recovery. Here’s what you can expect from this special service.
Pilates Physical Therapy
Pilates helps people build stronger, more flexible bodies and better posture. It makes the mind more alert, as well. Moreover, one can have healthier joints and better bone density from doing frequent Pilates exercises. But Pilates isn’t just for better fitness and mental health, because it’s sometimes included in select rehabilitation programs.
If you’re experiencing back pain, you may want to try out Pilates physical therapy to ease your pain. For one, Pilates exercises strengthen your core for better spinal support. These exercises help back and neck muscles relax and also encourage them to stretch a bit more. Additionally, Pilates physical therapy can help the spine move in different positions so that it’s more flexible.
Back pain isn’t the only condition that you can manage with Pilates physical therapy. It also benefits those experiencing neck pain and knee pain, or recovering from orthopedic injuries. Plus, Pilates physical therapy can help you manage scoliosis or other conditions that affect posture. Our physical therapists can arrange Pilates sessions to keep you active as you heal.
Conditions We Treat
At LifeClinic of Laguna, we offer physical therapy to help you deal with any of the following conditions:
Arthritis occurs when you experience joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. This condition can also cause fatigue, fever, rashes, and other symptoms. Inflamed joints from arthritis might also leave you unable to move around. The condition could also prevent you from performing daily tasks, thereby affecting your quality of life.
Fibromyalgia mostly causes pain within your muscles and joints, making you more prone to fatigue. Other symptoms of fibromyalgia include insomnia and an overall lower pain threshold. Your face, arms, hands, legs, or feet can feel numb or tingly, for instance.
Foot Pain (Plantar fasciitis)
Foot pain is the result of injured, worn-out, or swollen bones, ligaments, or tendons. It can stem from a swollen plantar fascia, which is the thick tissue under your foot and the connective tissue between your heel and toes. Runners are most likely to experience foot pain.
Back pain can affect your upper or lower back. Injury, activity, and illness typically cause the pain. You’ll mostly feel the ache in your back, but it can also run along your buttocks and legs. Other symptoms include feeling uncomfortable when trying to stand straight, and less range of motion and flexibility.
Neck Pain & Stiffness
Neck pain refers to any ache in your neck. Intense pain, tight muscles, and headaches are all symptoms of neck pain. Meanwhile, a stiff neck may feel sore and hard to move. It can stem from strained muscles or sprained soft tissues.
As its name suggests, chronic pain can last for months or even years. People with chronic pain may experience headaches, back pain, arthritis, or other painful conditions. The intensity of pain could range from a dull ache to a stabbing pain, and it could also be accompanied by fatigue, insomnia, or mood swings, as well.
Meet the Team
Dr. Breanna Vikander
Doctor of Physical Therapy
Dr. Bre Vikander graduated and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy from University of Utah. She has been serving patients in the Laguna Niguel, Crown Valley, and Orange County area for three years. Dr. Bre was inspired to become a physical therapist after she volunteered in a physical therapy clinic during high school. She was immediately drawn to the medical world. She knew she needed a career she loved and knew that it had to be something hands-on, with a lot of social interaction. She worked as a technician in a PT clinic and really fell in love with the relationships she could develop with patients and the ability to help them get back to things they love to do. She enjoys learning about a person and what makes their world go around as well as helping them accomplish physical goals that allow them to continue to do those things. She is rewarded by watching a person go from not being able to do something they love, due to lack of injury or movement and strength, to being able to return to that thing they love and knowing she was able to help them get there. She has a passion for working with athletes, pre- and post-partum patients, pediatrics, and scoliosis. She is Polestar Certified Pilates Instructor and incorporates Pilates into rehabilitation for most patients. She also has a background in athletic training and has been trained in the Graston Technique.
What Our Patients Say
The attention to detail is very much appreciated. Other chiropractors I have been to in the past seem to give everyone the same prescribed exercises and routines. The work I do here at the LifeClinic feels much more customized to meet my specific rehabilitative needs. It also helps the staff is extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. I would enthusiastically recommend the LifeClinic to anyone who wants to feel better!!!
The doctors here go above and beyond their duty to not only make you feel better but to function better in every aspect of your life. Each of my visits have given me more mobility and a better ability to not only train but enjoy it again.
