November 11, 2018
Dr. Kevin Schreifels started Lyn Lake Chiropractic in 2000 located in Uptown Minneapolis just a few blocks from the four inner city lakes we have in the Minneapolis, which is a Mecca for runners. Anyone that is a runner, or training for a marathon, 1/2 marathon or one of the many 5k or 10k races that Minneapolis offers have ran around these lakes.

 Dr. Kevin Schreifels has finished 12 marathons, at least 10 1/2 marathons and many shorter races.  With his personal experience with Minneapolis running injuries and treating himself he felt with the growing city of athletes it was very important to add two more amazing chiropractors to help with healing our athlete’s.  Lyn Lake Chiropractic is the Official Sponsor of the Twin Cities Marathon for more than 18 years, meaning in 18 years with TCM we have seen and treated many runners.

Helping our community - Caring Bags.

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
Lake Chiropractic Uptown or Lyn Lake Chiropractic Northeast. We just ordered 300 draw string back packs and once they get here (within two weeks), the chiropractors and staff at Lyn Lake Chiropractic will stuff the bags and hit the streets.  If this is a sucess we would like to do more of these Caring Bags all winter.

Just trying to give back and help our community!

If you were in a car accident and starting to have symptoms

November 7, 2018

With the weather changing and the roads are getting icy and slippery, there seems to be a number of auto accidents. If you were in a car accident and starting to have symptoms such as whiplash type pain - headaches, neck pain, increased neck pain when you're turning your head or if you have some new odd lower back pain, any of these symptoms could mean it's time to seek out some medical care and just get checked out.

Our Chiropractors at Lyn Lake Chiropractic serving Minneapolis and St. Paul Minnesota know what it takes to help get you back to how you felt before the car accident.  

Remember when the temperatures drop and there’s ice or snow on the road, allow more time to travel and for sure, keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, giving you plenty of time to stop.  Quick read more or view full article Always wear your seatbelt. 

Our Minneapolis chiropractors at Lyn Lake Chiropractic are specially trained and have years of experience in treating car accident injuries.  We treat St. Paul Chiropractic patients and surrounding suburbs.  

If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please give us a call.

When to take my child to see a Chiropractor

November 6, 2018
How can I tell if my child has spinal problems or needs to be taken to a chiropractic clinic for treatment?

Unless your child has obvious problems it can be difficult for a parent to know when a child’s spine is not working correctly. There are some signs which can indicate spinal problems.

These include:
  • Sleeping patterns changing for the worse
  • Breastfeeding difficulties 
  • Can't turn their head to one side
  • One shoulder higher than the other as you stand behind them

Common childhood disorders can also be linked with spinal dysfunction, these include:
  • Having too many ear infections
  •  Regular sore throats and colds
  • Colic/reflux
  • Asthma 
  • Scoliosis
  • Headaches - child should not have headaches!
  • Bedwetting and/or constipation
  • Growing pains - usually the muscles are sore from the bones growing and muscles catching up.
  • ADHD
One of the most common reasons for parents to do look for a chiropractic clinic is after some type of injury happens, we see a great Quick read more or view full article deal of playground injuries, gymnastics injuries, football and soceer injuries.  Neck pain and back pain seems to be common withthese sports.

Spinal misalignments that may occur at the time of the injury will not necessarily result in immediate pain or symptoms.

In addition to physical stress, parents should be aware that emotional and chemical stress affect the child’s nervous system and may also warrant a spinal check up and maybe some regular adjustments.

Having three girls and very active in sports, there has been many times I was able to help them.  And, there has many times we had to take them in to see an Orthopedic for broken bones, but even after they getthe cast off we were able to help them get there already sore muscles to heal faster with some hands on massage, stretching, Rock Taping and other physiotherapy.  When look for a chiropractor or a chiropractic clinic, one advice I tell people is, see if that chiropractor has child of his own.  Chiropractic care for children is for sure something worth checking into.
