Meet the Team
Dr. Luke Jakubowski
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Luke Jakubowski graduated from the University of North Dakota and received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University. He has been serving patients in the Edina, Southdale, and South Metro area for 15 years. Dr. Luke was inspired to become a chiropractor after being a lifelong athlete who experienced a long list of injuries. The injuries were bad, but not nearly as bad as the guidance, rehab, and advice he got about how to manage them. This sparked a deep passion inside him to become someone who could be a resource to athletes and active individuals to help bring them back from, and prevent, injuries. Due to his intense passion and knowledge, Dr. Luke has been able to help thousands of people over the last 16 years. He enjoys being able to teach people how their bodies work. Additionally, he loves being able to feel and see immediate change through thorough soft tissue work, adjustment, and proper rehabilitation protocols. He is grateful that he can use his hands and mind to create physical, mental, and emotional changes in his patients. Dr. Luke has a particular interest in athletic mechanics. He performs IMJT, Graston, Trigger Point Therapy, Kinesio Taping, and PNF stretching to help create mobility in the soft tissues. His greatest specialty in practice is his knowledge of athletic movement patterns and how to re-establish and advance those patterns through rehabilitation to help prevent injuries. He has experience in post-surgical rehabilitation of knee, ACL injuries, rotator cuff and hip surgeries, acute injury management, and correction of movement patterns to correct chronic issues associated with an active lifestyle.
Dr. Adam Sagedahl
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Adam Sagedahl graduated from St. John’s University and received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University. He has been serving patients in the Edina, Southdale, and South Metro area for 16 years. Dr. Adam was inspired to become a chiropractor when he first started utilizing chiropractic care for himself as a high school athlete when dealing with sports injuries. While studying biology in undergrad at SJU, he knew he wanted to do something in the healthcare field. He later decided to become a chiropractor after seeing multiple family members have huge success overcoming both recent and past injuries with chiropractic care. He witnessed this when other, more traditional medicine approaches didn’t help. He enjoys seeing his patients feel great after dealing with pain, but even more so is when patients are then able to go on to do the things, they’ve always wanted to do but never thought they could. Things such as, taking part in an athletic competition or just being able to keep up with their children or grandchildren. Dr. Adam has a particular interest in treating lower back pain and disc injuries as he has personally experienced this debilitating condition in the past. He believes chiropractic care and rehabilitation can go a long way in preventing unnecessary back surgeries. He also sees many patients who have desk jobs and deal with the common symptoms that go along with that such as headaches, neck and back pain. He is a certified RockTape provider. RockTape can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain. RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect.
What to Expect
During your 1st visit, our providers will hear the story of what brings you in, perform a new patient examination to determine the root cause of your problem, and briefly summarize what was found.
The examination consists of motion tests, palpation, reflex testing, and muscle strength, to help identify dysfunction in movement patterns and poor muscle engagement.
2 Report Of Finding
During your second visit, your provider will recap what was found in the examination, discuss a solution, review what your personal contribution to care will be, and begin treatment on that day.
3 Daily Appointments
On each subsequent visit, our providers will perform routine assessments to ensure you are track with your treatment plan and provide treatment.
Treatment visits typically consist of a combination of:
- Chiropractic Adjustments: restores, maintains, and optimizes human function by eliminating interference within the joint and soft tissue thus restoring the synergy between your joints, nerves, and muscles. Chiropractic adjustments are only available during sessions with a chiropractor.
- Integrated Muscle and Joint Therapy (IMJT): an advanced, active form of soft tissue treatment that effectively integrates the mind, muscular, skeletal, and neurological systems to achieve optimum balance throughout the body. IMJT is a patented technique available exclusively at LifeClinic.
- Rehabilitation: carefully selected exercises and activities used in a specific sequence in order to reinforce changes made with the adjustment and IMJT. Rehabilitation retrains the body’s “movement habits.”
