Edina Chiropractor

Optimizing function and providing pain relief, structural correction, and lifetime wellness care to the community for over 35 years

Our team of skilled practitioners will thoroughly evaluate you to determine the root cause of your health concerns and then will develop a personalized program of treatment to address precisely those factors. We offer a variety of treatment methods to help you achieve your health, fitness and life goals. Here are some of the treatment methods that we can provide:


Your First Visit With Chiropractic Health & Wellness

When you have your initial consultation with us, one of our doctors will sit down with you and discuss your past medical and family health history so that we can gather important clues as to what might be contributing to your condition. We will then move on to discussing your specific complaints and the impact that those complaints are having on you and your life activities. It is also critical, at this time, to identify your specific health and life goals because any treatment plan that we develop must encompass those goals.


We will then move on to performing a thorough physical examination. We will check your vital signs such as height, weight, body composition, blood pressure, heart rate, and rhythm. We will evaluate your posture using cutting edge posture analysis software. We will assess the movement of your spine and extremity joints, both generally and also very specifically looking for particular misalignments or malfunctioning joints. If necessary, we will do specific orthopedic tests to determine if you have joint damage and we will do specific neurological (nerve) tests to look for any negative impact on your nervous system.

At Chiropractic Health & Wellness we also specialize in Applied Kinesiology, a system of analysis that uses muscle testing to determine the source of problems in the body. As part of your initial visit we will do a full-body muscle testing analysis to look for imbalances, weaknesses and hidden problems.


If we see that you have postural/structural issues, abnormal spinal function, or have had a history of trauma or accidents, we will likely take spinal x-rays. We are very precise in our radiological procedures and have the latest digital x-ray equipment. We are interested in identifying not only pathology (disease processes), but also the existence of any damage, changes or congenital (from birth) abnormalities. We have a strong structural emphasis in our practice and therefore x-rays are an essential tool to identify key postural/structural issues that might influence your treatment program.


Once we have had a chance to study all of the information gathered in the consultation and examination we will have a meeting with you called a “report of findings” during which we do just that, report to you on what we found both through the examination and any x-rays we may have taken. We discuss with you exactly what we have found and whether or not we feel we can help you. If, for whatever reason, we do not feel we can help you, or we feel that other diagnostic work should be done, we will make appropriate referrals to other healthcare providers. During this report of findings, we will also clearly discuss your goals and how the various treatment options will help you achieve those goals.


Our treatment plans generally fall into four categories. The first category is what we call “pain relief”. Pain relief programs are designed to alleviate pain, and reduce muscle spasm and inflammation. Most people will achieve this goal within 30 to 60 days. The 2nd category is called “functional care”. Functional care plans are designed to go further than simply alleviating symptoms and seek to restore as much function to joints and associated soft tissue as possible. Functional plans generally range in duration from 2 to 3 months. The 3rd category is called “structural correction”. Structural correction plans seek to accomplish what the previous 2 plans did, plus they address the particular structural/postural issues identified on physical exam and x-ray.


Once a person achieves either pain relief or functional or structural correction our goal shifts to “wellness/maintenance” care. The goal of such care is to help a person maintain a high level of function and health throughout their life.

I have had the best possible experience with Chiropractic Health and Wellness.I have suffered with low back pain for at least 10 years. This is the first time I have had relief from constant pain. I have been taught exercises that relieve pressure and help with my poor posture.These structural changes have eased my pain and make me feel strong again.They operate like a well oiled machine. One day I came in fresh from a fall that would have been a problem for days.When I explained what happened, an intern got right to some therapy that took care of it.They know what they are doing and have changed my outlook. The entire team is patient oriented. A rarity these days.I will be forever grateful.

I visited the place on a recommendation from a friend for shoulder pain while playing sports. After couple of visits with Dr Fargo, I had absolutely no pain in the shoulder.I have been impressed on how the team is always available to help out. Also, Dr Fargo does such a great job at listening to all the concerns and explains the care plan in detail.

I came to this clinic with a curvature in my spine that destined me to be among the hunched-over old men. The X-Ray confirmed that I had one of the worst tilts forward of my cervical vertebrae that any man had. In three months of work, this clinic got me to an amazing improvement in my posture and an awareness of where my head is at all times. And once again, the X-Ray confirmed the improvement.

Excellent, personalized care. The whole team at Chiropractic Health and Wellness is very knowledgeable and professional. Holistic care is provided not only through adjustments but also by being taught home exercises, getting XRays, nerve stimulation treatment, massages… The front desk staff are welcoming and accommodating. My symptoms improved within a few weeks of working with Dr. Kailey - I can’t recommend this office enough!

I am a 67 year old woman who came to CHW less than two months ago seeking help for migraine headaches. I had experienced headaches beginning in early childhood, struggling with about 20 migraine headaches monthly. I had been actively seeking help through medical doctors for almost 30 years.When I met Dr. Fargo he told me he could not only take away my headaches, but he could also help me with a myrid of other health problems that I had. Pain in my lower back, feet, knees and hips. GI tract problems. Arthritis in my feet, hands and lower back. Obesity and trouble keeping up with my friends and family. I wondered how I would ever keep up with grandchildren someday.Following an evaluation it was determined that I had scoliosis and was out of alighnment in all my aching body parts. A program treatment plan was developed. After my first adjustment by Dr. Fargo I have not had any migraine headaches!MY LIFE HAS ABSOLUTLEY CHANGED!Continued adjustments along with traction and home exercises have made my body feel so much better. My arthritis is now not affecting me. Finding out my food intolerences and avoiding them has cleared up my colitis and GI tract difficulties. I began the Ideal Protein weight loss program at CHW and I have lost 32 pounds so far!I now feel that I have real possiblities and choices in my life ahead, free from pain and headed in a very positive and happy direction.I am incredibly thankful for Dr. Fargo and all the staff at CHW.Marnie
