An Experienced Chiropractor for Back Pain in Billings, MT
Dry needling works by the needle itself acting to physically disrupt the tension within the trigger points or tender muscles. It unlocks the tissue and encourages it to return to a more normal and improved level of function. It helps resolve symptoms more rapidly in many cases. It helps boost the effect of the chiropractic adjustment and its effect on the synovial joints.

I grew up on a ranch in southeastern Montana near the Rosebud Creek/Forsyth area. As part of a family that was avidly involved in rodeo and in particular barrel racing, I was raised with a strong work ethic, values and a love of the western lifestyle.
I attended grade school in Rosebud, high school in Forsyth, an undergraduate at Montana State University-Billings, and then chiropractic college at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minnesota. After I graduated, I wanted to return to the open spaces of Montana and found the countryside around Billings as a good fit.
I became a true believer in chiropractors while in junior high and watching my mother struggle with injuries sustained in a serious car accident. At that point in time, the insurance company directed her care and she was sent to a variety of medical doctors, neurologists, surgeons, and therapists. They tried to help her but her soft tissue injuries were not relieved by their care. She was told that she needed to learn to live with it. That was not an option as she had constant neck pain and debilitating headaches. I remember her vomiting off her horse while trying to help with ranch work because of her headaches.
She finally told the insurance company that she was going to a chiropractor, and with a lot of work, she got back to a normal, active life including riding horses and barrel racing. The change in my mother’s life and injuries myself while playing high school basketball have driven my passion to help others to live healthier lives.
