Chiropractic Services

Working alongside Perham Health medical doctors, chiropractors  Dr. Vincent Pankonin, Dr. Cheryl DeBoer, and Dr. Robb Reed help provide a non-invasive treatment option for patients with a variety of needs. Chiropractors consult with other doctors at Perham Health Clinic for items such as pain management medication. Patient care is connected as doctors work together to find the best treatment plan for each patient.

Common injuries treated include sprains of the neck or spinal region, lower back injuries, sciatica, headaches, foot/ankle pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and shoulder injuries. Many people suffering with these conditions also find the addition of massage therapy beneficial.

A new chiropractic offering is Decompression Manipulation or Cox Technic -- a gentle, low-forced procedure which works with the body’s natural design to aid in proper healing. This treatment is unique to Perham Health with Dr. Vincent Pankonin the only chiropractor certified in this technique in the region.

Decompression Manipulation is used to open the spinal canal, increase spinal joint mobility and relieve pressure off of spinal nerves for conditions including disc herniation, spinal stenosis, and disc degeneration.

Massage

Massage therapy and chiropractic care work hand in hand at Perham Health. With massage therapy included as a part of their recovery plan, patients often require fewer chiropractic treatments. Massage works to help warm up the muscle tissue, which allows for a more effective chiropractic adjustment. Other people simply find the relaxing experience of massage to increase general well-being, promoting health and relaxation.

Reflexology and raindrop technique can be incorporated into massage offerings. With reflexology, pressure is applied to certain areas of the feet, which results in a beneficial effect to other areas of the body. This technique helps improve circulation and is especially useful for people with plantar fasciitis or flat feet.

Raindrop technique involves dropping essential oils onto to the feet, spine, and other areas of the back in a slow manner--creating a sensation similar to falling raindrops. When applied, the oils help stimulate the body, boost the immune system, and bring the body to an overall sense of wellbeing.
