At St. Paul Chiropractic, LLC, in St. Paul, MN we are proud to assist you in your chiropractic journey. We regularly hear from many people who have never been to a chiropractor. If you’ve never had chiropractic care, you might be surprised about how it can help you improve your health.
You’re probably aware of some of the benefits of chiropractic care, such as back pain or neck pain relief. But did you know that chiropractic can also help with general health and wellness?
Neck pain is a common problem in our society, and St. Paul Chiropractic, LLC is here to help. Neck pain can be caused by work or auto injuries, poor posture, or everyday stress and strains.
St. Paul Chiropractic, LLC sees a wide variety of health issues in our St Paul, MN chiropractic office, and one problem we see is frozen shoulder. Frozen shoulder generally consists of three stages:
- The freezing stage is when the pain sets in and motion starts to become limited.
- The frozen stage as the shoulder becomes stiffer and harder to move.
- The thawing stage is when the pain and stiffness begin to lessen.
While medications and injections are common medical treatments, St. Paul Chiropractic, LLC finds that chiropractic can also help. The scientific literature confirms that a non-invasive approach can work.
As reported in the literature, chiropractic has been found to totally alleviate frozen shoulder symptoms for some people, offering a complete recovery from the pain and stiffness that come with this particular condition. In others, people with frozen shoulder have reported significant relief, ranging from 50 to 90 percent improvement.
Pregnancy and Wellness
Approximately one-half of all women report experiencing some level of back pain during their pregnancy, causing some expecting mothers to feel that aches and pains are normal and to be expected when you’re carrying a child.
However, the reality is that this doesn’t have to be the case.
Chiropractic care can often help make pregnancy more enjoyable by effectively treating misalignments caused by the growing fetus, thus creating a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery.
There are other advantages of engaging in chiropractic during pregnancy as well. By treating subluxations and aligning the spine, the brain is better able to communicate with the rest of your body, which means more stable hormone levels, fewer headaches, less nausea, and more.
And It’s Safe…
Studies have found that chiropractic during pregnancy is both effective and safe, which means that expecting mothers can enjoy the benefits of chiropractic physically as well as mentally.
We see many new parents in our St Paul chiropractic office, and we know the challenges of raising kids. When your little one has colic, it’s hard on the whole family, as they appear to be constantly in distress and there seems to be nothing you can do to resolve it, leaving you feeling helpless and frustrated. Well, chiropractic may be just the peaceful resolution (for both of you) that you’re looking for.
Research Shows Chiropractic Relieves Colic
Research studies have found that one week of chiropractic care is often enough to “significantly” reduce a colicky infant’s crying time, shortening it dramatically in the process. There are many theories as to why colic exists, from digestive issues to hormones to oversensitivity, but one thing is clear: whatever the cause, chiropractic may be the solution.
This means that your baby will spend less time crying and more time laughing and learning. It also means that you get more quality time playing with and loving him or her versus trying to console or calm the tears. It’s a great trade-off, don’t you think?

Can I Choose My Own Doctor?
The general rule is that the injured employee is always allowed to choose the health care provider from whom they wish to receive treatment. This right may be limited in two situations:
1. If the employer has a managed care plan in place on the date of injury or opts to purchase one after the date of injury, the employee may be required to treat it with a participating provider on the managed care plan’s list. However, the employee is always able to treat with any provider with whom he/she has a prior history of care.
2. If the employee belongs to a union, the collective bargaining agreement may contractually obligate the employee to treat with specified providers
Questions Regarding Workers’ Compensation Claims
What Type of Injuries are Covered by Workers’ Compensation?
Employees can be injured either as a result of specific traumatic events resulting in the immediate onset of symptoms or as the result of repetitive minute trauma (referred to as “Gillette” injuries in Minnesota after the name of the case first establishing that such injuries are compensable). The date of injury in Gillette situations is the date of the “ultimate breakdown”, meaning the date the employee is first rendered disabled from working or the date the employee first requires significant treatment of his/her injury.
Employees can be injured in motor vehicle accidents while working. Under such circumstances, workers’ compensation benefits will be primary. Accidents that occur while commuting to or from work are generally not covered by workers’ compensation unless the employee is required to use his/her vehicle in the performance of his/her normal work duties.
