Belle Plaine Chiropractor Launches New Website, Expands Access to Wellness Resources

BELLE PLAINE, MN--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2012) - River Valley Family Chiropractic announced that the practice has launched a revamped website, The redesigned site features new wellness content, including a wellness library, 3D Spine Simulator and blog. These resources explain the science behind chiropractic care and how these treatments can effectively provide long-lasting neck pain and back pain relief. River Valley Family Chiropractic serves Belle Plaine and also the Henderson and Jordan communities.

Belle Plaine Chiropractor Dr. Steven Gansen announced that his practice has launched a redesigned website, The site was revamped to make it easier for patients to access
important information on natural pain management and back pain relief.

"Our new website is an important asset for patients, naturally complementing our practice's mission to educate and empower our patients," said Dr. Gansen. "Many individuals are unaware that real alternatives to prescription painkillers exist. Chiropractic care provides long-term back pain relief because these treatments correct the underlying cause for pain, rather than covering this pain up with medication. The educational resources on our site do a great job of clearly explaining this to patients."

Using the website's 3D Spine Simulator, patients can see first-hand how a misalignment of the spine affects the surrounding nerves, leading to chronic pain. For example, a sports injury such as a herniated disc in the lower back can compress nearby nerves. The 3D Spine Simulator demonstrates how a single herniated disc can cause pain in other areas of the body, including the legs and hands.

"The 3D Spine Simulator is a great resource for helping patients visualize what is actually happening in their bodies," said Dr. Gansen. "When individuals struggle with pain, it can be difficult sometimes to understand that pain experienced in one part of the body is actually caused by a misalignment in a different part. The Spine Simulator perfectly shows patients the cause of their pain. This also helps patients understand how restoring alignment can correct this problem."

Individuals who are new to spinal adjustments can learn more about these treatments in the website's "Community Content" wellness library. This library includes articles on the science behind spinal adjustments as well as how these treatments can help a variety of conditions, including whiplash injuries.

"An auto accident injury, even at slow speeds, can cause serious trauma to the musculoskeletal system," said Dr. Gansen. "Our new website is designed to help patients better understand their treatment options following a car accident, sports injury, workers compensation injury or personal injury. Prompt care can make a tremendous difference for successful pain management."

Dr. Gansen is also launching a new blog with the website. He uses the blog to post injury prevention tips, wellness news articles and keep patients informed of the latest in non-invasive pain management. "Every day, important breakthroughs are made for natural pain management," said Dr. Gansen. "As a chiropractor, I believe everyone -- not just elite athletes -- deserve high quality care. I'm excited to share these treatments with the Belle Plaine, Henderson, and Jordan communities through our new blog."
