You are a critical part of your care plan

We believe that our patients are powerful
and we give them tools to succeed.


All patients have three
similar goals:

  1. to understand what is causing their pain,
  2. to receive skilled treatment to help alleviate their pain,
  3. to learn what they can do to keep the pain from coming back.
    At Positive Motion Chiropractic, we have the same goals and firmly believe that educating our patients is a key ingredient in healing fast and staying pain-free. We have an extensive library of resources to help our patients become active participants in their healthcare for long-lasting results.

At Positive Motion Chiropractic, we know that you want to feel like you did when you were young. In order to do that, you need to be pain-free. The problem is that something in your body is not right and causing you pain, keeping you from the things you love to do, which makes you feel hopeless. We believe you don’t have to live that way. We understand how horrible it feels when pain stops you from doing what you love, which is why we specialize in liberating you from pain so you can reclaim your best life.

Here’s how we do it: we meet with you for an hour to do a thorough, personal exam to truly understand your unique situation. Then we craft a custom careplan and help you implement it so you can learn how to stop feeling hopeless, stop settling for less and missing out, and instead get back to doing what you love—like you did when you were a kid.

Nine Tips to Improve your Run

Nine Tips to Improve your Run
Before we begin, take a look at the image below. You will see four columns paired with a left and right foot strike of 28 different runners from the 2012 US Olympic Trials 10k race. What do you notice about all of the runners? Stride length - Over striding is when foot hits the ground in front of the knee. Optimal foot strike should be sightly in front of body or center of gravity, or under the knee and hip. This will decrease impact forces, therefore decreasing the injury rate. Quick Fi...

A Crossfit + Chiropractic Success Story

A Crossfit + Chiropractic Success Story
The following is an account of experience from one of Dr. Nordin’s patients who was so transformed by her care at Positive Motion that she wanted to share her story. Hi, I’m Stef, a 37 year-old female, who has been on the lengthiest hunt for the healing I needed desperately. Over the last 20 years, I have seen 17 chiropractors (yes, 17) who claimed to heal me from the car accident I had as a high school senior. My straight neck had no curvature, my low back constantly was in achy di...

Orthotics: An Answer to Your Chronic Pain?

Orthotics: An Answer to Your Chronic Pain?
This blog post was originally published by Positive Motion Chiropractic in 2018 by our associate chiropractor Vanessa Nordin, DC, CCSP Hearing the suggestion of orthotics is usually met with curiosity or skepticism from most patients. At Positive Motion, we suggest orthotics after a full gait evaluation and FootLevelers laser scan of the foot (check out some of the information gathered in a foot scan). Orthotics are suggested only if there are clear indications that the patient would greatly be...
