I’m sure your have heard the phrase, “The Mind Body Connection”, but did you know that the mind body connection is at the core of what Chiropractic does best? Chiropractic adjustments optimize the connection between the mind and the body through a spine and nervous system that is free of interference. This vital connection of the nervous system not only controls your entire body, it allows you to adapt to the daily stresses we all encounter. Most people think of seeing a Chiropractor for back pain, neck pain or head-aches and it is great at helping with those things, but it is so much more.
Take the time to have a Chiropractic exam for you and your family today.
Wishing you Health and Happiness,
Dr. Mark Lindholm

Dr. Martens has experience treating patients with severely debilitating neurological conditions (traumatic brain injuries, seizure disorders, Parkinson’s), patients in the initial stages of neurological disease (pre-Parkinsonian syndromes), as well as patients with minor neurological disorders (ADD, ADHD, motion sickness). Dr. Martens serves in the treatment of typical Chiropractic patients as well as those with neurological problems.
