Chiropractors are most often noted for fixing “kinks” in the spine, usually the neck, mid back , and lower back.
Dr. Craig and Christopher Mortensen are both experts in fixing and correcting aches and pains in the neck, mid, back, lower back, headaches and all the usual “chiropractic stuff”. What sets our office apart from the rest is that we are not just spine doctors. We provide care and health to the entire body. Both of our doctors of Chiropractic are experts in fixing aches and pains in the spine and have also become experts treating various sports, traumatic and overuse injuries of all kinds in the entire musculoskeletal system, which includes:
Shoulders (shoulder impingement, rotator cuff injuries, sprains an strains)
Wrist pain (carpal tunnel, tenosynotitis, etc.)

Common treatments that we use in addition to joint manipulation and adjustments include muscle stimulation, ultrasound, diathermy, flexion distraction, spinal decompression, rehab exercises and many others. Our office is not just a one trick pony like many other offices. We will do anything within our power and scope of practice in order to help you achieve your goals of less pain and a healthier lifestyle.
Chiropractic is based on the premise that when the joints and nervous system are working right the rest of the body will function properly as well. The nervous system is the MASTER system of the entire body and controls EVERY SINGLE aspect of your body functioning. In the same way that your arm falls asleep at night and does not function when your nerves are not functioning right your organs and other systems of the body will not function to their full potential, thus leading disfunction, which will eventually lead to DISEASE.
