St. Louis Park, MN Chiropractic Care & Adjustments

Spine Alignment

During this procedure, chiropractors use their hands or a small appliance to apply a controlled yet abrupt force to the spinal column. In turn, you can experience pain-free mobility and maintain the correct posture. 

Hip Alignment

Through varied techniques, this chiropractic approach can loosen tight muscles around the hip area to relieve chronic hip pain. Hip alignment also helps patients improve balance.

Back Alignment

Although more common in adults, children also experience back pain. During a back alignment procedure, chiropractors apply a sudden force to your backbone to relieve lower and upper back pain. This way, you can sit and stand for long periods easily.

Tailbone Adjustment

Those who have given birth and or been injured commonly experience tailbone pain. During this chiropractic procedure, we gently manipulate the affected bone, called the coccyx. 

Full Body Adjustment

Unlike the procedures mentioned above, a full body adjustment aims to relieve pain in all parts of the body. Hence, this procedure tends to take longer than the others. A series of full body adjustments aim to correct posture, improve sleep quality, and ease overall discomfort.

Holistic and Preventive Adjustments

At LifeClinic of St. Louis Park, we offer holistic care through our individualized treatment plans that focus on preventive care. This means you can still seek the help of our chiropractors even if you don’t have any chronic conditions. For example, we can help you prevent an underlying condition from getting worse.

Manual Therapy

Our therapists use their hands to apply force or massage the affected area. This way, you can experience relief from pain and discomfort. Other benefits include relaxation and reduced inflammation. Through different techniques and varying pressures, manual therapy can help you stretch muscles better, increase circulation, and improve range of motion.

Physical Therapy Modalities

Some of our physical therapy modalities involve the use of machines and gadgets to help in pain management. For example, our therapists can use heating pads to soothe injured body parts. In some cases, we use ice packs to reduce blood flow and manage swelling. 

Therapeutic Exercises

Apart from our chiropractic care and physical therapy services, we also encourage our patients to exercise. At LifeClinic of St. Louis Park, we will monitor your recovery and recommend low-impact activities. We will also advise and teach you when and how to perform these exercises. 

Functional Training

Unlike therapeutic exercises, functional training aims to improve strength, increase flexibility, and enhance your range of motion. This kind of treatment plan is recommended for recovering athletes and those who want to become stronger without being held back by their condition.

Accident Injuries

An accident can affect a person’s mental and physical health. At LifeClinic of St. Louis Park, we help speed up your recovery without compromising your overall well-being. Some of the conditions we treat include whiplash, strains, sprains, and other musculoskeletal conditions.

Sports Injuries

Athletic activities are a rewarding pastime and, for some people, part of their work. However, unfortunate events sometimes lead to sports-related accidents. Should you experience chronic pain due to sports, don’t hesitate to reach out to our therapists and chiropractors.

Work Injuries

Most work-related injuries include muscle and joint trauma, sprains, and strains. We offer non-invasive treatments for such conditions so you can go back to your daily activities.

Pre- and Post-Operative Care

In some cases, going through a surgery is a must. However, this type of operation could also take a toll on your body. A personalized rehabilitation program can aid you in achieving a speedy and healthy recovery. In the same way, it can also help prepare your body before undergoing surgery.

Special Services

Apart from our chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitation services, and physical therapy, we also offer a special therapeutic procedure for our patients.  


Dry cupping requires the use of numerous suctions to relieve pain and discomfort due to sore muscles and joints. Our therapists will leave the cups on top of your skin for several minutes to help improve your body’s circulation.

This non-invasive procedure helps relieve pain symptoms related to low back pain, arthritis, shoulder pain, neck pain, and other conditions. Due to the pressure from the cups, you might notice circular marks left behind on the affected area. But there’s no need for you to worry since these marks will fade after a few days.

Dry Needling

During dry needling, monofilament needles penetrate the skin to stimulate muscle tissue. The needles are placed in various trigger points to address neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. No liquid is involved during the process.


Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment method that promotes blood vessel and bone cell regeneration. The procedure releases high-energy sound waves to restore blood flow and encourage long-term soft tissue healing.

What to Expect

1 Examination

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.”
