CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES IN BILLINGS, MONTANA AND SURROUNDING AREAS
The brain stem and spinal cord are the primary pathways for nerve impulses to and from the brain. Nerve tissue is so important most of it is protected by bone. The brain is protected by the skull and the spinal cord by 24 movable bones called vertebrae.
Many everyday things can cause these vertebrae to lose their normal motion or alignment. This can set off a chain reaction of tensions, pain, inflammation, and loss of motion in the joints of the spine, nerves, and muscles. This is called a vertebral subluxation.
Vertebral subluxation can be caused by physical trauma such as a car accident, a slip and fall, repetitive motion injuries, postural strains seen with desk and computer work, and emotional stress.
Doctors of chiropractic can detect and correct vertebral subluxation allowing your body to heal itself and return to normal pain free function. Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxation with an adjustment. A chiropractic adjustment is a technique in which a specific force in a precise direction is used to free up a fixated join. This allows the pain, inflammation, and tension related to that subluxation to resolve.
We have found patients who address a musculoskeletal complaint with a conservative approach like chiropractic and massage can resolve the problem faster, without taking prescription drugs, and for less expense. However, if a patient is not responding to this conservative approach we are always ready and willing to order additional diagnostics or make a referral to a specialist for a second opinion.
Getting our patients better is always our first priority.

ABOUT LISA LARSON DC
After graduating college she decided to spend the summer in Montana with her dad who had returned to his home state. While working in Billings, she met her husband David and they were married in 1982. In 1985 Lisa decided to pursue a degree in physical therapy. They returned to New Jersey to begin this process. Over the next several years Lisa earned an associates degree in Biology. She was also involved in a motor vehicle accident that led her to have her first experience with a chiropractic physician. The benefits and relief she received from her chiropractic care for her neck pain and headaches led her to re-evaluate her career choice and she applied to chiropractic school. She attended Western States Chiropractic College In Portland, Oregon and graduated in 1992.
Lisa and David returned to Billings and opened a chiropractic practice in which they both work; David as a massage therapist and Lisa as a dedicated chiropractor. They have served Billings and its surrounding areas for 24 years and hope to continue that service for years to come.
Lisa is a mom of two fantastic kids and enjoys nothing more than spending time with family and friends. She loves the outdoors and spending time in the mountains, supporting her daughter at horse shows, and anything that has to do with animals.
