Nutrition & Chiropractic Care

The Benefits of Good Nutrition With Chiropractic Care.

What is the Connection Between Nutrition & Chiropractic Care?

Everyone knows that the organic, non-GMO, and unprocessed foods are best. But, did you know that none of that matters if you don’t have an optimally functioning nervous system? This is where our chiropractic care will help you!

Disrupted Nervous System, Disrupted Diet

Your nervous system influences every single part of your body, especially your digestion. When the nervous system is not balanced and experiencing disruptions, chances are that no matter how nutritious your meal is, the nutrients that your body needs won’t be properly stored, broken down or even entirely used. But, why?

The nervous system is responsible for telling your body what it needs to do with its fuel. If a disturbance is present, the messages sent between your brain and body will go unread.

Family First Chiropractic Center’s Nutrition Expert, Katie Vigesaa, RD

Hi! I’m Katie Vigesaa, and I am a registered dietitian (RD) with a simple philosophy: nutrition can help. I am an advocate of the real food movement and love teaching my class members and clients the power of real food eating. I graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN in 2009. From there, I was selected to be part of Concordia’s Dietetic Internship program. I passed my RD exam in 2010 and have been a practicing dietitian ever since.

The nutrition counseling process is incredibly rewarding; I have helped people with a variety of conditions including autoimmune diseases, sleep problems, fibromyalgia, skin conditions, mood disorders, eating disorders, metabolism imbalances and more. I never tire of watching my clients start to thrive once they change the way they are eating. Increased energy, decreased aches and pains, bright moods, and of course weight loss when needed are all benefits of changing your food. If you want to see how nutrition can help heal your health, all while learning how to eat real foods, I can help.

Herniated Disc & Chiropractic Care

How Can Chiropractic Services Help With A Herniated Disc?

Herniated Discs Are One of the Top Causes of Pain We Treat Patients for.

What is a Herniated Disc?

herniated discThe Mayo Clinic refers to a herniated disc as a “problem with one of the rubbery cushions (disks) between the individual bones (vertebrae) that stack up to make your spine. A herniated disk can irritate nearby nerves and result in pain, numbness or weakness in an arm or leg.”

The most common symptoms of a herniated disc include but are not limited to:

  • Arm or Leg Pain – depending on where the disc herniated, you will feel pain in your arms or in your legs.
  • Numbness or Tingling – the majority of people with a herniated disc often feel numbness or tingling in the body part served by the affected nerves.
  • Weakness – the muscles that are served by the affected nerves often experience weakness.

How Can Chiropractic Services Relieve the Pain?

If we feel that you are a suitable candidate for chiropractic services for herniated disc pain relief, we will do the following:

  • Develop an individualized treatment plan that includes adjustments and other techniques.
  • Your treatment plan is determined from a number of factors including; pain, level of activity, and health.

Our chiropractic services provide effective relief to those who suffer low back pain, neck pain, whiplash, sciatica and disc herniation, headaches and migraines, dizziness, work/auto/sports injuries, sprains and strains, arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome
