Chiropractic Services 

Our Urbandale chiropractor offers a variety of chiropractic services. These services include concussion and brain injury rehabilitation, activator technique, spinal traction, prenatal and pediatric care. Below is some more details about several of these chiropractic services. 

Functional Neurology 

Dr. Wagner, our chiropractor, specializes in neurology. He can help people with concussions recover and offers brain injury rehabilitation at Family Chiropractic Care. Contact us for more information on functional neurology and how we can help you out.

Activator Method

The Activator Method is a special chiropractic technique that Dr. Wagner uses in our office to help alleviate pain in patients. This chiropractic technique uses a hand held instrument instead of the hands to manipulate muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue all over the body. Dr. Wagner travels all over the country to educate other chiropractors on how to use this chiropractic method.

Spinal Traction

Another type of chiropractic technique we offer is spinal traction. Spinal traction is a type of decompression therapy that takes off pressure in the spine. Machines or hands can be used to perform spinal traction. Degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, herniated discs, and other back conditions can benefit from spinal traction.

Pregnancy and Pediatric Care

Women who are experiencing pregnancy and children can also benefit from visiting Dr. Wagner for pain relief through chiropractic techniques. A woman's body changes throughout pregnancy. Posture can change as a result of the growing belly, making sitting and standing uncomfortable. Adjusting the spine and neck can bring relief to the lower back and other areas of the body. 

Children can also benefit from chiropractic care. Children who experience pain from a variety of conditions can also benefit from getting chiropractic adjustments done. Please contact us if you have any questions about our practice and the services we offer. 

Make an appointment at your earliest convenience so that we can treat and end your chronic pain. You can fill out our New Patient Form from the comfort of your home and turn it in at your first appointment. From there we will perform an exam and diagnose you.
