Vacuum therapy, or cupping, is one of the specialized therapies we offer our patients at Lindstrom Chiropractic when appropriate.  This therapy delivers increased blood supply to muscles and skin to relieve chronic and acute pain and muscle tension.  (Cupping created a mild sensation at the summer Olympics  when it was used to treat members of the U. S. swimming team.)

When treating acute back pain, this therapy uses large cups to create a strong vacuum that mimics the rolling action of deep tissue massage to draw out inflammation with little or no pain.

Vacuum therapy is also beneficial in speeding recover from surgical procedures.  For example, patients with severe burns or deep abdominal scars, such as C-sections, use cupping to loosen and soften rigid tissue, no matter how old the scar is.

Cupping often creates a deep sense of relaxation.  Many patients have reported a deep warmth and tingling sensation long after the treatment has ended.

Today, two in every three American adults are overweight or at risk for being overweight.

Diet and exercise are the gold standard for weight loss, but the struggle to drop pounds and keep them off remains problematic for many.  As an addition to this regimen, UltraFlora Control from Metagenics may help individuals achieve body weight regulation by modifying microbiota composition.

Here's how it works:  UltraFlora Control offers targeted probiotic support by delivering 10 billion colony forming units (CFU) of Bifidobacterium lactis B-420 (tm)- leading to the production of beneficial gut metabolytes and helping to improve gut integrity.  By delivering 10 billion CFU of this probiotic, UltraFlora Control may help:*

- Support body weight regulation
- Control body fat
- Reduce waist circumference
- Control abdominal fat

In a 6-month clinical study of overweight individuals, those taking Bifidobacterium lactis B-420 (tm) showed reduced energy intake, making it a powerful ally in the war on weight.*

If healthy weight loss and weight managment are long term goals, consider adding UltraFlora Control from Lindstrom Chiropractic to your diet and exercise regimen.

*These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

With so many people waging this battle, healthy weight loss and management are essential for long term health and wellness.

Dr. Tom has added a new tool called RockBlades to his chiropractic "toolbox."  RockBlades is a lightweight tool designed to provide superior soft tissue therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal immobility and pain.
This therapy addresses soft tissue restriction, initiates healing mechanisms and stimulates mechanical receptors that create favorable changes in both movement and pain.  That sounds pretty technical, but the important thing is that RockBlades really works.

If soft tissue pain is slowing you down, contact us at 630-896-3377 or visit the website at  Dr. Tom will show you how RockBlades, in his healing hands, can minimize your pain and restore lost mobility.

Joe Berenyi,  a highly decorated U. S. Paralympian, won a silver medal in cycling (3000m individual pursuit) at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

Joe's story is a remarkable one.  Back in the early 90s, he found success in a handful of amateur cycling races, but, in 1994, he put his bike away when a construction accident cost him his right arm and left kneecap.  Nearly 13 years later, Joe decided to join some of his neighbors for a ride and his love of cycling was reignited from there.  He only had 3 years of experience riding at the national level when he won 3 medals and set a world record at the 2012 Paralympics in London.  Since that time, Joe has participated in 4 World Championships, winning an additional 6 medals (4 gold, 2 silver),

Joe was named the USOC's men's Paralympic Athlete of the Year in 2015, and was nominated for an ESPY in '15 in the Best Male Athlete with a Disability category.

Lindstrom Chiropractic is proud to call Joe Berenyi a client.  He's an inspirational guy!
