Keeping Your Health on Track
Serving Central Minnesota
Muscle stimulation therapy has been used for many years to treat weak or atrophied muscles resulting from an injury or from long periods of immobility. The electrical impulses stimulate muscles and nerve endings, causing them to contract and relax which develops strength and encourages blood circulation and healing in the affected area.
Similar to the effects of deep tissue massage, electrical muscle stimulation therapy is used to treat a variety of painful issues, from muscle strain and injury to fibromyalgia symptoms.
Misalignments and other joint problems can result in decreased mobility, pain, or other symptoms such as numbness or tingling, both at the problem site and elsewhere in the body. Dr. Spandl's specific and gentle spinal adjustments work to re-establish mobility and proper alignment of your joints. Often, this restores balance within your body and allows you to return to pain-free movement and optimal health.
At Spandl Chiropractic, we specialize in manual adjusting as well as incorporating the drop table technique. In order to maximize results, our office can utilize the Arthrostim adjusting instrument, which is a tool that assists in gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments to the spinal and extremities joints.
At Spandl Chiropractic, we treat not just the injury, but the whole patient. We offer a wide variety of treatments for everyone, each treatment designed for a specific purpose and each treatment plan as unique as you are. We also offer wellness care, exercise consultations, pregnancy care, and pediatric care services.

RockTape is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissue) to provide a lightweight, strong, external support that helps to prevent injury and speed recovery. By applying RockTape over the affected tissue, individuals experience an external support that helps to prevent further injury and allows the body’s damaged tissue to rest and heal naturally with limited restrictions.
It also reduces inflammation and increases circulation, which prevents muscle cramping and lactic acid buildup.
Therapeutic exercises are specific bodily movements prescribed to correct impairment, improve musculoskeletal function, and prevent further injuries from occurring. Our approach is individualized to every patient’s specific needs and is chosen from a number of highly selected activities restricted to specific muscles or parts of the body.
Therapeutic exercises can help the patient obtain specific goals, whether that means to become pain-free, or to run that personal best in the “big race".
Ultrasound has been a widely used and accepted modality for the management of many musculoskeletal conditions. Ultrasound is applied to affected areas and has been shown to decrease inflammation (swelling), remodel scar tissue, increase soft tissue healing, and decrease pain.
