Lyn Lake Chiropractic taking over Waxberg Clinic in Pine City

November 12, 2020
I just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support the Waxberg family has received during this difficult time. While we are still in shock at Rachel’s death, I have learned that the world must go on. It is apparent that many people besides my family relied on Rachel. Friends, family, staff and patients are all hurting.

Rachel told me a long time ago that if anything ever happened to her that I cannot legally own the Clinic, as I am not a Chiropractor. I never really thought or cared about that, because what could happen? This week I had to realize and deal with the fact that in Minnesota, I have a short window of time to move ownership of the clinic to another Chiropractor.

For the last few months Rachel had been talking about the future and what she Quick read more or view full article would like to do with the clinic. Every time we had that conversation, she told me she had someone in mind, and that someday she would convince him to come back to Pine City. This week when I realized that I needed to make some tough decisions about the clinic, my first call would be to the “Someone” that Rachel had chosen, Dr. Travis Shermer.

The first call I made this week was to Dr. Travis Shermer. Our family has known Travis and his family since he was a kid. I asked Travis is he would consider taking over the clinic, or if he knew someone who he would recommend. After some late-night phone calls, I met this week with some of the staff from
Lyn Lake Chiropractic

in the metro. (This is where Travis currently works and is a partner) We spent hours talking. We talked about the clinic, how Rachel loved her job, her staff, and the love she had for her patients.

I learned that it was not the right time for Travis to uproot his family on a day’s notice and move back to Pine City. But I was introduced to a great Chiropractor named Dr. Joel Blomberg. Dr. Joel has been working at Lyn Lake Chiropractic side by side with Dr. Travis Shermer and Dr Kevin Schreifels. Dr. Joel as he prefers to be called likes all the things Pine City has to offer. He is from a small town in Wisconsin, he likes to hunt, fish, and be outdoors. I think Dr. Joel will love Pine City. I am grateful to Dr. Joel and his wife Becky for being willing to uproot their lives, and move here. I am grateful to Dr. Travis Shermer and Dr Kevin Schreifels at Lyn Lake Chiropractic for coming and helping me make some hard decision about the future of the clinic. I know that Rachel would have wanted the clinic to stay open, and continue to serve her patients. Please stop in and welcome Dr. Joel to Pine City, and say hi to the staff.
Thank you again for your love and support, Todd, Duke, Cole Read Less

Dealing with Stress

May 11, 2020
While stress has been increasing in recent months and years and now with the issue with Covid 19, it's still a massive issue in the United States and has a detrimental impact on health. Sources of stress vary from person to person, but the most commonly reported causes of stress are money, work, the economy, family responsibilities and health concerns.
Thankfully, chiropractic care can help combat the symptoms of stress and help you live a better life. 

Stress in Children

According to a wide-reaching study by the American Psychological Association (APA), nearly a third of all children surveyed indicated they have experienced physical symptoms associated with stress in the month prior to the study, like trouble falling asleep, stomachaches and headaches. Even more staggering, the youth-suicide rate today is four times higher than in the 1950s.

Stress and Overall Health

The most common symptoms of stress are feeling irritable, angry, overwhelmed, anxious, Quick read more or view full article fatigued and depressed.  When under stress, different areas of the body are affected. Some issues that are affected by stress and certain systems in our body that respond to stress as follows.

Musculoskeletal system: Muscles tense up and contract under stress like the back of your neck which can cause headaches, migraines and other conditions.  Upper back more between your shoulder blades that seem to always get super tight when we are stressed can cause neck pain, upper back pain and between your shoulder blades. 

Respiratory system: High stress can cause rapid breath, or hyperventilation, and trigger panic attacks and some people feel stress can cause asthma. 

Cardiovascular system: Acute stress can increase heart rate and inflammation in the coronary arteries, potentially increasing risk of stroke, higher blood pressure and more.

Endocrine system: While stressed, the adrenal glands produce cortisol, increasing risk of heart disease and diabetes. 
Nervous system: Under stress, the body will act as though it's under threat. This reaction is an innate response that has been occurring for millions of years. When the mind perceives a threat or the body experiences a shock, the body releases hormones that boost the ability to either "fight" or flee ("flight").

Most modern humans don't experience the same hazards our ancestors encountered, but this natural response has now transformed to reactions to modern day stresses—work, deadlines, traffic, illness, arguments, etc.

Lyn Lake Chiropractic can help with stress, we feel a regular adjustment and some muscle work can help people deal with their stress.

Chiropractic care is essential to the healthy function of the nervous system, which contains the brain and spinal cord. Chiropractic adjustments activate the parasympathetic system, which calms the "fight or flight" reaction triggered in the sympathetic system. Research has also shown that chiropractic can reduce blood pressure.  Our chiropractors will also give you things do do at home such as stretching, proper ergonomics and if needed can point you in the right direction to talk to a PT to help you set up a personal stretching routine. 

Call one of our three clinics to talk to a chiropractic doctor about chiropractic and stress. We offer free consultations which means you can call or stop by and see if what you are dealing with is something Lyn Lake Chiropractic can help better your life.

November 8, 2018
Due to the weather changing and it's getting colder outside, we know there's a surplus of people living on the streets and with the encampments we want to help these people by giving.
 Lyn Lake Chiropractic  will be putting together something we call - Caring Bags.

These Caring Bags will allow us to go around the Minneapolis area and hand out to people that need a little hope and help. We're putting many different items in these bags to hand out. Some of the many items will be - hand warmers, tooth paste, tooth brush, warm hats and gloves, snacks, little water bottles and a gift card so they can get something warm to eat and maybe give them a chance to warm up.

If you want to donate something to put in these Caring Bags, just drop it off at either Lyn Quick read more or view full article
