Chiropractor Baxter MN
At Hedlund Chiropractic in Baxter, our goal is to build and maintain the overall health of our patients. Our Baxter chiropractor offers personalized treatment that is tailored to you and your symptoms. We don’t give treatment for the sake of treatment; we work to discover what is causing your discomfort before deciding on and implementing a plan of action.
We understand that even though one patient might have the same diagnosis as another, the same treatments do not always generate the same responses. The Hedlund Chiropractic team works to understand changing healthcare needs and approaches — both in our patients and in the chiropractic industry.
Welcome to Hedlund Chiropractic
Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of physical ailments, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

THE HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer.
In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
