Joint pain

As people age, it is a common often belief that the pain and discomfort associated with our joints is a normal occurrence that we are forced to live with. While our joints can experience levels of degradation as we age, the pain and reduced mobility that is often associated with arthritis doesn’t have to be something that we suffer through. Instead, let's review some of the facts around chiropractic care and how it can be beneficial in treating the pain associated with arthritis.

Hip pain

Hip pain can be temporary or chronic, and can be caused by a range of different factors, the most common of which is osteoarthritis. Patients with osteoarthritis experience inflammation of the tissues around the joint including damage to cartilage, and this can lead to pain, stiffness and mobility issues. Less commonly, hip pain can be caused by other issues with the musculoskeletal system such as problems with the shape of the bones, infections or fractures. The good news is hip pain can nearly always be improved using chiropractic treatment.

When I started going to Dakota Clinic my life was a mess. I could not walk without help of a walker or cane and did not have any feeling in my feet. As of today, 90 days later, I have feeling back in my feet and am able to do the things I used to do, thanks to Dr. Christenson...

My name is Peggy and I am 66 years old. In 2015 I started having severe left shoulder pain. I saw several doctors and they recommended Cortisone shots or shoulder replacement surgery. After having 4 injections in the next 2 years without results, I decided...


I am 38 yrs old and 5 yrs ago I was told I  needed a knee replacement by 2 very qualified doctors I trusted very much. I would still trust these men, I just think they are not as open to trying new practices that Dr. Christenson is providing. I’ve played sports my entire life...
