The Doctor

I received my chiropractic education from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington Minnesota in 1994. After graduation I became licensed to practice in both Minnesota and Wisconsin. Iinitially practiced for a short time in Lady Smith Wisconsin and then returned to Minnesota where I associated with Dr. Tom Murr and eventually purchased his practice, Robert Street Chiropractic, in 1997.

Over my many years in clinical practice I have strived to improve my knowledge of the human body and chiropractic technique through ongoing education and specialised training in such areas as nutritional analysis, gait analysis, spinal restoration, rehabilitation, postural restoration, spinal decompression therapy and muscle testing.

I am a hands on adjuster and expertly evaluate and adjust both spinal and extremity joints utilizing low force, controlled adjusting techniques. The following is a list of the main techniques I regularly utilize:

  • Diversified technique
  • Gonstead technique
  • Applied Kineasology
  • Cox Flexion-Distraction
  • Cranio-Sacral
  • Activator

In addition to manual adjustments I incorporate manual massage techniques such as trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage and myofascial therapy to restore normal muscle tone and function. Individualized chiropractic treatment programs are built around each patient and may include the following:

  • On site Digital X-Rays of the spine and extremities
  • Electrical muscle stimulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Cold Laser
  • Spinal decompression traction
  • Custom exercise and stretching programs
  • Nutrition and Weight loss counseling

My philosophy is to meet every challenge head-on, find the best way to meet it and beat it. Never stop educating your mind, caring for your body, and feeding your soul.

A Message from the Doctor:

I have been delivering high quality, affordable Chiropractic care in the West St. Paul and surrounding areas since 1995. In addition to high quality Chiropractic care, I routinely provide nutritional and diet counseling as well as stretching and exercise programs specifically designed for each individual needs.

I believe the body is about balance and that in order to achieve optimal health your body should be treated as an entire unit during treatment and not as individual parts. To acheive this you will be cared for using a combination of soft tissue techniques such as massage or trigger point therapy, to target the connective tissues. Manual adjusting of your spine and extremities to reduce subluxations, improve motion and remove nerve interference.

You will receive a personalized treatment program with the goal of returning you to an optimal level of health and back to a normal lifestyle as quickly as possible. I do not run a practice that will have you returning for months to treat simple health issues. You will not be pressured to return for care if you do not want to. You will not receive harassing phone calls from my office staff. I do not babysit my patients. If a patient is truly committed to reaching optimal health they will follow their treatment plan by making their appointments, and adhering to any recommendations or restrictions.

I believe that my responsibility as your chiropractor is to listen to you and perform a competent evaluation to determine if chiropractic care is what you need. If i accept you as a patient i will advise you as to what needs to be corrected, how long this correction will likely take, and what your financial responsibility will be. I also need to work closely with you to determine the causation of your health problems, find ways for you to eliminate this irritation and prevent the development of future health issues, In addition i am responsibel for educating you about chiropractic and how chiropractic can help you and your family acheive and maintain the optimal health we all desire.

I am always available for consults and will gladly take any phone calls and answer all emails form both new and current patients. If you are new to chiropractic or are looking for a new chiropractor to work with i am always accepting new patients.

Please do not hesitate to call my office and talk directly to me.

Yours in Health

Dr. Allen Rydberg, DC
