Balanced Life Chiropractic

I have been a part of the chiropractic world since I have been 8 years old.  I thought I was going into a career to help people with back pain because that’s what my dad got help with.  It wasn’t until my 2nd year of chiropractic school that I learned what chiropractic was truly about.  I didn’t know chiropractic could help with ear infections that I suffered with as a baby.  I didn’t know chiropractic could help with my focus issues I had in middle school.  I didn’t know chiropractic could help with my digestive problems in high school or sleep issues in college.  I’ve been around chiropractic my whole life and I didn’t know it could help with the very things I suffered with!  And what I have found in my 10 years of being a chiropractor, is that the general public doesn’t know everything about chiropractic either.  Did you know the brain has to tell your heart to beat, lungs to breath, digest your food, fight your cold and it can only do that through the spinal cord and nerves in your back? Did you know that any type of stress, whether it be from physical activity, poor nutrition, emotional feelings can shift your bones in your back affecting this communication?  Did you know there are scans that are safe for babies and adults that can show us if any nerves in your spine are being affected even if you don’t feel any pain? Did you know pain is the last thing to show up and we can find a problem before the pain even starts? Did you get a lot more no’s than yes’s to these questions?  People are looking for help, they are looking for answers, they are not looking to take another drug.  Patients tell me all the time-I wish I would have found you sooner, or I just didn’t know chiropractic could help.  Neither did I.  That’s why teaching my patients and my community about what chiropractic encompasses is a true passion of mine!  If you have never been to a chiropractor, or have but didn’t have the best experience, or “it didn’t work,” or are skeptical but have an open mind, give us a call, schedule an appointment and let’s see if there is anything chiropractic can help you with.  If I can’t help, I will let you know.  If I can help, I will tell you that too. Finally, what you do with the information is completely up to you! There are no strings attached, no hard sells.  Your health journey will always be your decision and I would love the opportunity to be a part of that journey.  Call when you’re ready.

Meet Chiropractor Dr. Brittany Akehurst

A native of Bloomington, MN, she received her undergraduate degree of Biology from Northern Michigan University. Dr. Brittany worked at 3M in the Critical and Chronic Care solutions division.

After being under chiropractic care, Dr. Brittany began seeing changes in her own life such as increased energy levels, improved moods, and stronger immune system! These experiences have shaped Dr. Brittany’s desire to assist people in realizing their true potential in health and break free from their health challenges and allow their body to soar!
