Spine specialist, Dr. Jeremy Heidt shares a story of a woman with severe sciatic who came to his office after going to the ER.
My name is Dr. Jeremy Heidt. It is a personal experience with chiropractic care for a back injury and sports treatment that I had my first experience with chiropractic care.
At the age of 14, I suffered from severe low back pain and migraine headaches. I had a spinal fusion surgery recommended for me at the age of 15. Through chiropractic care and giving my back time to heal I saw improvements in both my lower back and migraine headaches and was able to avoid a spinal surgery. This personal experience got me involved in chiropractic and I believe the personal and professional experience is what makes our clinic unique.
In the past 10 years of treating patients, I have learned that paying attention to the little things in treatment can have a huge impact. I have learned manual chiropractic adjustments, combined with soft tissue therapies, and rehab exercises as needed can truly make a difference in patient's lives, myself included.
Whether it's helping a patient walk with less pain, that ability to get on the floor to play with their grandkids, recovering from a sports injury, or avoiding a back surgery, these goals are what makes going to work each day enjoyable.
It is my goal to get the most efficient response possible for each patient. Whether it's using chiropractic adjustments to improve function and decrease pain, soft tissue therapies, flexion distraction/decompression, or rehab exercises/plans. I truly believe we have the tools available to make a difference with our patients and have them leaving our office better than when they came in.
I grew up in Dickinson, North Dakota. Graduated from college at the University of North Dakota and graduated from Chiropractic School at Northwestern Health Sciences in Bloomington, MN.
After spending 14 years in Minnesota and owning Midwest Chiropractic and Wellness in Eden Prairie, MN for 8.5 years Jenny and I made the decision to move back to North Dakota to be closer to our family and have our girls, Finley and Emery, closer to home.
I am certified in Cox Flexion Distraction/Decompression, (The only chiropractor in North Dakota with the certification and 5-10% of chiropractors being certified nationwide.) I am also certified in a technique called FAKTR that uses multiple soft tissue therapies (Cupping, Instrument Assisted Tools, Functional Rehab Exercises) to get patients better.
I enjoy treating a wide variety of issues from Acute and Chronic Neck and Back Pain, Disc Herniations, Scoliosis, Facet Syndromes and extremity issues such as shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle issues.
