After successfully managing a busy chiropractic clinic in Singapore for several years, focusing on non-surgical spinal decompression and peripheral neuropathy, Dr. Parsons and Sarah brought their brood back home so they could raise their children closer to family.

Dr. Matthew Christenson

  • Doctorate of Chiropractic (Magna Cum Laude)

  • Bachelor of Science in Human Biology

  • Board Certified in Peripheral Neuropathy, BCN

  • Registered Trigenics® Physician/Practitioner, RTP

Dr. Matthew Christenson grew up with humble beginnings in Fargo, North Dakota and went to undergraduate school at North Dakota State University.  At 17 he suffered an autoimmune reaction to a flu vaccine (RA) that left him incapacitated and on many prescription medications.  Chiropractic and functional medicine saved his life so he decided to pursue it as a career.  He attended the prestigious Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN.  Here he graduated Magna Cum Laude with his DC degree in 2010 and was selected by his colleagues as class commencement speaker.  Within six months of graduation he moved to Texas and started from scratch one of the largest practices in the state and gratefully served thousands of patients up until he and his family felt called back home to North Dakota. 

His love and expertise is helping those who suffer from Peripheral Neuropathy, Knee Pain, Frozen Shoulder/Shoulder Pain and Plantar Fasciitis. The irony is he himself has experienced all of the above conditions at one point in life on top of his autoimmune disease and has had to put himself through the protocols he's created to improve.  

As a believer he knows that all things work together for our good (Romans 8:28) and now can relate with each and every patient on many levels.

Dr. Matthew has spoken across the country  to thousands on various topics and has trained/consulted some of the nations top doctors/clinics.  

His passion is serving people who have been told that there is nothing that can be done, as well as helping them get back to the lives they deserve.

In his free time he enjoys being a father, growing in his faith, reading, classic cars and the outdoors.
