It was a natural decision for Joshua Kruse, DC, to become a chiropractor; his father cousins, aunt and brother, are all in the field as well. He chose to obtain his degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University, in 2005 and is a member of the Minnesota Chiropractic Association. Today Dr. Kruse practices at Kruse Clinic of Chiropractics in Hopkins, Minnesota; success he says, come from focusing on each patients goals.

If you have been trained in home exercises to help prevent injury and preserve your progress, it shouldn’t be that debilitating but continued care preventative care is better than just waiting for symptoms to return.

Without seeing it and without examination I’m uncertain of the cause of this. It could be a developmental issue. However, I have seen it’s more associated with nerve impingement that has been unnoticed until your body has been challenged like hitting the gym. A functional examination via orthopedic and neurological test will provide a better insight. READ MORE

My father is suffering from severe back pain. Can it be treated with manual adjustment of the spine?
Manual manipulation has been effective at treating symptoms like your father’s. A thorough othropedic examination is required to determine if it’s the best option for his condition. If he is willing, call and schedule an appointment and we will see if he qualifies for chiropractic care. 605-217-2100 READ MORE
