Personalized healthcare designed to get you results
Functional Medicine at its core utilizes a highly personalized approach, designed to address today’s healthcare challenges by defining, addressing and correcting the underlying cause of disease. The initial visit begins with a conversation about each client’s health history, current concerns, and personal goals. Specialized in-office tests are performed, while additional labs may be ordered to fully measure function rather than just disease. Taking this collective information, an individualized and holistic treatment plan is then designed to correct the source of the true problem versus a reactive series of solutions that will only treat the symptoms. Functional Medicine is a completely different paradigm and was developed to effectively address the underlying causes of disease and poor health, using a systems-oriented approach. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a client-centered approach, the refined protocols utilized in Functional Medicine target the actual source of the problem, instead of an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine’s focus on improving function rather than managing dysfunction makes it the ideal choice for everyone from elite athletes to the chronically ill.
Chiropractic is focused on the relationship between the structure of your spine affects the function the nervous system and how this relationship affects your health.
Misalignments of your spine and poor health
No part of your body can function without the control of the nervous system. Improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments, called subluxations create disturbance to the signals traveling through the nervous system causing poor health and function, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally.
Natural health care without drugs or surgery
Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment—the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment—corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to heal itself.
Chiropractic care should be part of everyone’s healthcare program. Chiropractic helps the musculoskeletal system work better so you perform your everyday activities now and helps prevent arthritis from a poorly moving spine. It also improves the function of your brain, spinal cord, and nervous system. Your brain and nervous system controls all of your organs, all of your muscles, and even how your body perceives sensory information. Think of the nervous system like the electrical wiring in your home. If you have bad wiring that’s not good.
NO-FAULT MEDICAL AND WAGE LOSS BENEFITS
North Dakota and Minnesota are no-fault states concerning motor vehicle crashes. This means that North Dakota and Minnesota require all drivers to maintain an insurance policy that includes no-fault benefits. The most commonly used no-fault benefits are medical expenses and lost wages. Sometimes no-fault benefits are also referred to as PIP (personal injury protection) benefits.

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle crash that requires you to seek medical treatment or causes you to miss work you must file an application for no-fault benefits with your insurance company. The application process generally requires you to fill out a form with information about the crash and to sign authorizations allowing your insurance company to get copies of your medical records.
MEDICAL EXPENSE BENEFITS:

You should cooperate with your adjustor to make sure all of your medical expense and wage loss benefits are paid as quickly as possible. Your insurance company will send you explanation of benefits forms (EOBs) explaining what bills have been submitted and how much has been paid. You should review these EOBs carefully and contact your insurance company and medical care provider if it appears that your crash care bills are not being paid in full.
