Restore, maintain and optimize your body.
Two types of pain exist: acute and chronic pain. The first kind goes away easily, and after that, you can already return to your daily activities. However, chronic pain is characterized by more persistent discomfort, which can last for up to more than six months. Experiencing chronic pain could have a negative impact on your functioning and well-being. As a result, health experts recommend seeking treatment to alleviate chronic pain.
Remedies for chronic pain conditions include medication, and in more severe cases, surgeries. But if you prefer non-invasive treatments (and also want to avoid dependency on painkillers), you might be looking for a different type of treatment. This is where chiropractic and physical therapy comes in.
But how does chiropractic care work? Chiropractors use their hands or small equipment to apply a controlled and abrupt force to the affected area. These treatments alleviate discomfort while conditioning your body to prevent chronic pain.
At LifeClinic of Lakeville, we focus on restoring, maintaining, and optimizing human function. Our team is trained in treating various musculoskeletal diseases. Since 2007, we’ve been treating various conditions and symptoms, including knee pain, arthritis, scoliosis, tension headaches, growing pains, and more.
If you’re experiencing any of these conditions or symptoms, visit our website to book an appointment. We are happy to be your partner in health and recovery.
Meet the Team
Dr. Aaron Howe
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Aaron Howe graduated from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire and received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University. He has been serving patients in the Lakeville, Farmington, and Rosemount area for over eight years. Dr. Aaron was inspired to become a chiropractor after he had seen what regular chiropractic care had done to help his mother, who has been living with scoliosis and severe asthma since her youth. During his years of being a multisport athlete and witnessing what chiropractic care was doing for his mother, he sought treatment himself. After only a few visits, Aaron was not only performing at a higher level, but also experiencing less fatigue and increased flexibility. During his time at UWEC, Aaron’s mother had continued to get regular chiropractic care and was feeling the best she had felt in years. She was breathing significantly better, had noticed an improved range of motion throughout her spine and was able to stabilize the scoliosis near her lumbar spine. This made Aaron’s professional decision an easy one. While attending one of the top chiropractic colleges in the nation, Dr. Howe was also a captain of the school’s men’s ice hockey team, the Northwestern Naturals. During the three-and-a-half-year program, Dr. Howe was able to perform at a high level both on and off the ice. He attributes this success to regular chiropractic care, an active lifestyle and significant support from his close friends and family. After practicing as an associate for 4+ years, he decided a change was in order and accepted a position at the Lakeville LifeClinic in August of 2017. He enjoys providing chiropractic care to the individuals and families of Lakeville and surrounding communities. Dr. Aaron is very thankful for this opportunity and will strive to be the best care provider that he can be. He has particular interest and thoroughly enjoys working on the shoulder region while also helping numerous individuals restore, maintain and optimize their health.
Dr. Devin Jeffries
Dr. Devin Jeffries graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Montana State University with a concentration in Kinesiology. While at MSU, Dr. Devin had the privilege of being a defensive end for the Bobcat football team. During his tenure with the football program, he gained valuable experience in preparing, training, and rehabilitation as a division one athlete. After attending MSU, Dr. Devin received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University. He enjoys serving the patients in Lakeville, MN, and surrounding areas.
He was inspired to become a Chiropractor at a young age, as it played a pivotal role in optimizing his mother’s overall health after a whiplash injury. He was also a multi-sport athlete growing up, and chiropractic care was a key component in keeping him on the field and excelling at a high level. Dr. Devin loves to help individuals that are in pain overcome their obstacles and achieve the active lifestyle they want to live.
In the clinic, he enjoys being able to build long lasting relationships and likes to get to know his patients more than just their symptoms. A patient can expect to be put through a functional full-body assessment to help determine the root cause of the problem. One shoe size doesn’t fit all, and Dr. Devin will take a different approach with each patient and their treatment plans to optimize their overall health. He will display honesty, integrity, and passion in the clinic, as he inspires to be the best and most reliable healthcare provider to his patients.
Dr. Devin has an interest in working with athletes of all types including weightlifters, runners, and the weekend warriors. He believes movement is medicine and a combination of exercise education and manual therapies will provide the best outcome. When he’s not in the clinic, you can find him golfing, hunting, fishing, or hiking with his border collie Paisley.
