Help your body heal itself.

The Gaitlink Method is a chiropractic technique developed to return your body to a state in which it can protect itself from injury and heal itself naturally. 

Our feet were designed to adjust to the uneven surfaces we see in nature. Unfortunately, the surface we walk on throughout our day is flat and hard. This surface prevents normal foot motion and shock absorption, causing the force from the gait cycle to travel up the leg into the pelvis and spine. In an attempt to stabilize itself, the spine tightens muscles and compresses joints to adapt to this continuous force. The result is a degenerating spine that lacks function and mobility, creating an environment for injury. 

Through a specific progression of treatments, Dr. Swanson applies the Gaitlink technique in patterns that cause the body to unlock itself naturally, and often permanently.   

With the Gaitlink approach. Patients report substantial and often permanent changes in:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Hip and knee pain (often to avoid surgery)

  • Sports injuries

  • Tennis Elbow
  • Carpal Tunnel

  • Headaches
  • Migraine Headaches

It feels wonderful to have my back feel great after finishing my treatments last June. I have spent my life (since 12 & I’m 49) getting adjusted & it never lasted. Having my spine be in great shape still after almost a year of no adjustments is something I never thought would happen!
