Working alongside Perham Health medical doctors, chiropractors Dr. Vincent Pankonin, Dr. Cheryl DeBoer, and Dr. Robb Reed help provide a non-invasive treatment option for patients with a variety of needs. Chiropractors consult with other doctors at Perham Health Clinic for items such as pain management medication. Patient care is connected as doctors work together to find the best treatment plan for each patient.
Common injuries treated include sprains of the neck or spinal region, lower back injuries, sciatica, headaches, foot/ankle pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and shoulder injuries. Many people suffering with these conditions also find the addition of massage therapy beneficial.
Chiropractic’s role in concussion management is in the role of assessment, post-injury treatment, and managing referrals to other health disciplines for concussion care/treatment.
We administer and interpret Impact test data both baseline and post-injury tests, assess for spinal and traumatic brain injury (concussion), and develop a plan for treatment and/or referrals as needed.
Chiropractic works closely with occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, and athletic trainer to provide well-rounded care.
