Chiropractic doctors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body's ability to self-heal. Sounds ideal, but just how does it work? Chiropractic looks at the whole picture. Like other health-care providers, chiropractors follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient. Chiropractors consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and we may request laboratory analyses and/or x-rays. Unlike other health-care providers, however, chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient's structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We also ask you about your life- Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work? And so on. Chiropractic seeks the origin of the problem. Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms. If your roof is leaking, do you simply catch the drips in a bucket for years on end, or do you repair the roof to prevent it from leaking? Similarly, if the migraine headache you've had all week is being caused by misaligned vertebra and an irritated nerve, do you continue to take pain killers indefinitely, or do you realign the vertebra to prevent the pain? You get the picture. Chiropractic fixes the origin of the problem. Chiropractors have a term for misalignments: subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. It's a leak in the roof. Or a kink in the wiring of your nervous system. The severity of the subluxation can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors that can be physical, emotional, mental, or chemical. The subluxation can be caused by any number of incidents, from birth trauma to an auto accident to simple repetition or over-use. At Backstrom Chiropractic and Wellness, Dr. Donald Backstrom and the chiropractic team seek to uncover you whole health and wellness picture, find the origins of health problems, and fix those at the cause.

The best ever

To all of you who are not believers in Backstrom chiropractic wellness care....believe it!!!! My name is Carol and I drove 1300 miles to see this great man and his staff. I live in Florida and was on pain meds, not being able to move my hand from off the top of my head. The only hope in Florida was to keep me medicated....I had my brother pick me up and take be to Dr. Don. In two days I was pain free and three weeks off of all pain meds. This place is amazing, and I wish I could move them all down here. I have been home for about a month and still doing well, the supplements (all natural) have been a godsent, and I also have a rolling routine and exercisises to do for follow up. At one point surgery was the only option they gave me down here...my friend Dr. Don and his staff has changed all of that.....Believe and give them a try, I promise you they can help. Cant wait to get back there, or maybe have them come down here.....My love to all at Doc Dons...you are all the best .


Backstrom Chiropractic and Wellness

I have been seeing Dr. Backstrom and his staff for treatment since February of 2010. It is June 2010 now and I have never felt better! I was muscle tested at my first appointment and had some issues involving some scar tissue. With the help of adjustments, cold laser treatments, and supplemental treatment, I have not had a headache since the start of my treatment! I used to have them all the time, as well as a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders. I have more energy during the day, sleep better at night and eat better as well! Thanks Dr. Backstrom, Justin, Barb and Kristin for helping me on this journey to wellness! You all always make me feel comfortable and calm and welcome! See you on Tuesday,GG
