At Mahtomedi Natural Care Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our White Bear Lake office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As Doctors of Chiropractic Dr. Gina Nelson and Dr. Justin Nelson have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Gina and Dr. Justin can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Many people are surprised to learn that chiropractors adjust children, especially newborns. This stems from the idea that chiropractors are back pain doctors and only treat people with specific injuries or aches and pains.
Chiropractic is above all preventative. While children do experience many traumas to their neuromusculoskeletal systems, beginning with birth, regular chiropractic checkups and adjusting serves to spot problems early and lessen their impacks, all the while keeping the nervous system at optimal function for general health, well being and development. Chiropractic pediatric care should begin soon after delivery to foster optimal spinal and nervous system growth and development. While most babies are born healthy, every baby begins their life in the world with the trauma of birth. Traveling through the birth canal serves to form the skull and influences the cranial/sacral rhythm which pumps the nutrient fluid surrounding the central nervous system. It also exerts tremendous pressure on the newborn. This pressure may cause or accentuate biomechanical issues which have occurred in utero. Breach or assisted deliveries using forceps, vacuum extraction or Cesarean extraction increase birth trauma. A chiropractic exam can determine whether or not your child can benefit from chiropractic treatment or cranial-sacral therapy. As a child grows the vertebrae grow in relation to pressure placed upon them. For this reason it is vital to insure proper vertebral position and movement as each child experiences the spinal development from the single curve of the new born spine to the tri-curve form of the adult spine which takes place as the child learns to lift their head, crawl and walk. And let's not forget all the head bumping and falling that goes along with the process! Like chiropractic for adults, care is not limited to the spine. Once your child is up and walking we start to see all the fun filled incidents related to learning about the world, especially bikes and jungle-gyms, that can effect the limbs as well as the spine.
With over two thousand years of research and practice, Acupuncture is a highly effective and safe form of holistic medicine. There are a wide range of conditions that acupuncture has been found to be of benefit. Many conditions can be looked as an imbalance within the functioning system of your body. It is the job of the acupuncturist to find ways to balance your body systems by using a range of diagnostic information. Some of the most common reasons that a person may seek help from an acupuncturist are: pain anywhere in the body, including trauma and headaches, depression, anxiety and insomnia, as well as allergy and sinus issues, and menstrual/fertility problems. Acupuncture, as a form of therapy, is found by most to be a very relaxing experience, even those that may have a fear or initial hesitation about needles. Very often there would be some needling on the first visit to ensure that we are getting started on your areas of concern immediately. There may still be questions that you have regarding acupuncture and its practices, if so please feel free to contact the clinic or schedule a time to come in for a trial of therapy.
