Chiropractic Services for Humankind

Diversified Chiropractic Technique Chiropractic as we know it begin in 1898 under the development of D. D. Palmer. The Diversified Technique adjusts the vertebral subluxation complexes (VSC) (problems caused by restriction between vertebral joints and their ligaments, blood and lymphatic vessels and other associated tissues) of the spine and pelvis to directly affect skeletal joints, nerves and muscle function, while indirectly affecting visceral or organ function of the body. Diversified Doctors of Chiropractic are also trained how to adjust extraspinal joints of the limbs, temporomandibular joint (TMJ or jaw) and ribs. DeAnn Adams completed her Doctorate of Chiropractic training in this technique at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, MN in 1998. Dr. DeAnn Adams is licensed in the state of MN by the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners (MBCE).

Acupuncture – applies needles to points along the meridians of Qi flowing throughout the body in order to optimize and balance that flow thus affecting the balance and health of the body. Dr. Adams’ training for pain management and preparation for the chiropractic adjustment was studied at Northwestern Chiropractic College and she became certified for that in 1998. She is registered with the MBCE and may use acupuncture on humans only.

Applied Kinesiology – is an evaluation tool developed by Dr. Goodhart that considers the structural, chemical and mental aspects of the body via manual muscle testing along with other traditional diagnostic tools to help determine the health of the body and its systems, as well as, determining some of the corrective care. Dr. Adams attained her 100 hours certificate of completion in 1998 through the International Certified Applied Kinesiology (ICAK – USA) program.

CranioSacral Therapy – an osteopathic technique developed by Dr. Upledger that assesses the dural components of the cranial and spinal cavity (protective layers of the brain and spinal cord) and corrects any dysfunction detected in order to optimize central nervous system function. Dr. DeAnn Adams studied and attained her certificates in CranioSacral Therapy (CST) Levels I & II, as well as SomatoEmotional Release Technique Levels I & II (addresses physical body complaints that arise from emotional distress) training between 1998-2002.

“I first went to Doctor D to try acupuncture treatment of chronic pain related issues.  She provided me great relief, plus solid recommendations regarding my nutrition.  I subsequently became a chiropractic patient; and when I was pregnant she was extremely helpful with painful hip issues.  When my son was a newborn, we both had treatments from Doctor D and it was a wonderful experience.  I have referred many friends to her over the years with great confidence.  If she was still in St. Paul, I would still be seeing her!”
