Dr. Skow also have completed post-graduate work specializing in pregnancy and pediatric chiropractic care. Dr. O’Donnell continues to follow her passion helping patients utilizing Functional Medicine.

Chiropractors are experts in detecting areas of nerve irritation throughout your body. An impaired nervous system results in dysfunction. This is where the disease process begins. We start by meeting with you and learning a detailed history. You will then go through a complete neuromuscular evaluation. Our treatment focuses on removing irritation from the nervous system. The bones of the spine house and protect your spinal cord, which is an extension of your brain. The spinal cord carries information from your brain to body and back to the brain again. Misalignments in the spine and other joints, called subluxations, create nerve interference. Chiropractors work with your body to remove the nerve irritation and restore proper alignment and function. We do this primarily through the use of specific Chiropractic adjustments.

OUR APPROACH

Heartland Chiropractic is very fortunate to offer therapeutic massage therapy as a compliment to your chiropractic and wellness care. Therapeutic massage to provides relief from physical and emotional stress, facilitates the elimination of toxins and waste and improves circulation. Massage therapy combined with chiropractic care helps improve neuromuscular health and provide overall balance.
