Jasz Couldn’t Turn Her Head… but Now She Can.

Recently we had an interesting case come through our doors and with our practice members’ permission, we documented how it started and how it’s going. Dr. Derek sat down with her to discuss a little bit about her case so you get to see firsthand, before and after, how chiropractic has helped her.

Dr Larsen is a wonderful chiropractor! He understands the body well and is a joy to have as a provider. He explains the interconnectedness of what he is treating and problem solves the cause and prevention of any ailments. He does manual adjustments and has a wonderful, kind, and friendly demeanor. He asks a lot of good questions and works with his patients to figure out the best treatment plan. He figured out a major problem I was having within minutes and I went from being in excruciating pain to painless movement within minutes. ??

They are always friendly, efficent and to the point. Family friendly and flexible. I've had hip issues for years, and was finally able to feel some relief and walk without pain after only a few sessions. Plus the pupper is such a sweetheart!

Dr. Larsen was able to get me in almost immediately. He and I had a great conversation my first time in. I had never been to a chiro before and he explained to me in great depth what he will be doing and why he was doing it. It is a very comfortable environment and Derek is very knowledgeable. If you are looking for a chiro in Juneau, Derek is your guy!

It’s been along time since I’ve had a chiropractor that I’ve felt can heal. Derek is not only knowledgeable about his practice and applications but also shows personal dedication and care for my personal well-being! Highly recommended. His care is much needed in our community.

I went in to my first appointment with Dr Derek, in pain and barely able to turn my head, due to a sports related re-aggravated neck injury. i walked out with almost full range of motion. Subsequent follow up visits only helped more, pain significantly reduced, range of motion increased. His kind and positive demeanor, explanations of what he's doing and why, in addition to suggestions for exercises one can do between visits all combine for top notch chiropractic care. Highly recommend Dr Derek at Happy Family Chiropractic!

Chiropractic FAQs

What are the health benefits of chiropractic care?
The wise Hippocrates once said – Look well to the spine for the cause of dis-ease”.

‘Chiropractic care is more than just making the pain disappear. It is about learning, understanding, and taking care of your body to improve your quality of life.’

Helping with back pain is just one of many, but the advantages don’t end there. We realize that health is more than just the absence of pain. It’s also about the ability to enjoy life to the fullest.

How can a chiropractor help me?
“Chiropractic is… a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column… for the correction of the cause of dis-ease.” ( Chiropractic Text Book, R. W. Stephenson,) As we go through life we all experience trauma, that trauma can be physical, emotional, or chemical. We typically are able to adapt to that trauma and carry on with life. Occasionally our bodies experience trauma that is too much to handle and we cannot adapt well. When this happens the body stores that trauma and then requires a bit of encouragement to overcome the trauma. It is in these situations where chiropractic can help by giving the body encouragement through a gentle adjustment. With that encouragement, the body’s restorative and recuperative properties are enhanced and the body can begin to heal more optimally. Through consistent chiropractic care, we are able to help the body achieve its optimal function. Allow us the opportunity to help you find your 100%.
Do you accept insurance?
At the moment, we do not accept insurance.
Do you do walk-ins?
We do take walk-ins, but be sure to call before coming in to make sure Dr. Derek didn’t take a fishing break.
