2)How many of each do you have? (7-Cervical, 12-Thoracic, and 5-Lumbar)
3)What is the definition of health? (A state of optimal physical, mental and social well-being; NOT merely the absence of disease or symptoms)

4)What controls and coordinates all of the 75 Trillion cells of YOUR body. (Brain and Central Nervous System) (That is why it is called the master control system)

5)What is the “Purpose Statement” of Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness? Helping you, express life to the fullest.

6)What is a Subluxation? It’s a chiropractic term used to describe when the spine is out of alignment causing:

  • 2)pressure or pinching on the nerve, which interferes with the messages between the brain and body
7)What percentage of Americans currently have a Chronic Health Condition? (over 40% and the number is expected to reach 50% by 2030) Why do you think the number keeps increasing?

8)The United States ranks (37th) out of 39 industrialized countries regarding the quality of health of the population…. However, the US is #1 in the amount of money spent on health care per individual per year. (Over $10,000 per person per year)

9)The United States consumes (56 %) percent of all the medications and 80% of Opioidpainkillers prescribed annually Worldwide… BUT the U.S is only 5% of the World’s population. Does that make sense to anyone?

10)Chronic health conditions account for what percentage of health care cost? 75%

11)What is the Chiropractic/Holistic approach for treating non-emergency/non-life threatening health problems? Increase the level of health and function of the body… through chiropractic, rest, nutrition, exercise, acupuncture, etc to treat the cause of the problem…. and then if that does not resolve the problem, use drugs and surgery as a last resort)

12)What is the Medical/Allopathic approach to treating non-emergency/non-life-threatening health problem? Start with drugs to treat the symptoms and then give another drug to treat the side effects of the 1st drug.

16)Do we recommend that typical “healthy” adults or children get a flu shot? NO (they are less than 50% effective and there are serious safety concerns because it has the highest levels of Thimerosal (mercury-based) aluminum and formaldehyde of all the vaccines given. You would have to weigh 500lbs to be able to safely process the high levels of these toxic heavy metals)

17)What are the three phases/types of Chiropractic care? I)Relief care (treating symptoms only) II) Corrective Care (correcting the cause of the problem) and III) Wellness/Maintenance Care (optima the l function of the brain and nervous system).

18)What can subluxations of the nerves going to your stomach cause? (ulcers, acid reflux and indigestion) (drugs like Nexium and Prilosec are one of the largest money makers for pharmaceutical company’s and they don’t actually fix the problem)

19) What is the is #1 cause of chronic headaches? Subluxations of the cervical spine. (It is one of our favorite conditions to treat because we get such great results using our unique approach)

22)Common effects of “Whiplash” are: stiffness/general achiness, shoulder/neck/arm pain, headaches, dizziness, numbness/tingling/weakness, nausea, and sleep problems.

23)What is unique about Nokomis Chiropractic and Wellness that allows us to get great result for our patients’?

  • 1) Detailed evaluation and x-ray analysis, that allows us to identify the cause of your problem. Most chiropractors do not take x-rays
  • 2) Treatment approach that includes a combination of Chiropractic adjustments, massage and home rehab to correct the problem
  • 3) Affordable maintenance/wellness plans for individuals and families.
24)It only takes an accident of 6MPH to cause “Whiplash” injury. (Have you seen our website video?)

25)The pharmaceutical industry spends over 4 billion dollars in the United States each year on advertising directly to the public in order to create a demand for their drugs. (More than they spend on research and development)

26)What is INNATE intelligence? (The intelligence you were born with, that runs your body without you thinking about it) (ie. increase your heart rate when you run, or digesting the food you eat)

27)Why are the home exercises we give you important? (They help strengthen and stabilize the muscles and ligaments of your spine allowing you to get long-term sustainable benefits from your Chiropractic adjustments.)

28)What general supplements do Dr. Matt and Dr. Olson recommend that all adults should take? (Vit D, Calcium, Fish oil, probiotics and a daily multi-vitamin.

29) Sciatica is the numbness & tingling pain running down the back of the leg into the foot or toes caused by Subluxations in the Low Back.

30)The effects of “Whiplash” can take weeks, months or even years to cause pain or symptoms. (So always get checked by a chiropractor if your accident was more than 6 miles per hour)

31)Why do you need to take Vit D? Because Vit D deficiency leads to depression, MS, lower immune function and many other problems…. And you cannot make Vit D if you live in Minnesota from Oct to May, because the sun is at too low of an angle.
