Our practice is based upon determining the needs of each individual client. You will not find any “cookie cutter” treatment plans or contracts to sign. Through a thorough history and evaluation along with standard orthopedic and neurological testing, we can determine if Chiropractic care is the most effective option for you. How you proceed is based upon your specific needs and goals for your health.
Should your care plan require Chiropractic adjustments, we offer a wide variety of adjustive techniques with varying levels of force. From traditional manual techniques, the Activator technique, Thompson Drop and a variety of soft tissue techniques, we strive to find an approach that is not only effective but also comfortable for our clients.
In addition to traditional Chiropractic care, we offer therapeutic options including interferential therapy, manual tens therapy and cold laser therapy. Acupuncture can be used with your Chiropractic adjustments or as a stand-alone approach to your health needs. Rehabilitation services for spine and extremities are available to help stabilize your core and enhance physical potential. Nutritional consulting and products are also available if needed.
This is generally where most clinics list the countless conditions they treat. As a family health and wellness clinic, we prefer to focus on your specific needs. Once we identify your areas of concern, together we will formulate a plan to address them and assist you in becoming the strongest and healthiest individual you can be. Give us a call today if you have questions about how we may be able to help you.
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Mike Christensen has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
The practice of acupuncture is the stimulation of certain acupuncture points on the human body for the purpose of controlling and regulating the flow and balance of energy in the body. The practice includes the techniques of piercing the skin by inserting needles and point stimulation by the use of acupressure, electrical, mechanical, thermal or traditional therapeutic means.
At Christensen Chiropractic Clinic, P.C., we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Carroll chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Spinal & Postural Screenings

In order to help the Carroll community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment.
