At Bodywise Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Elk River office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Dan Moore has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
The incorporation of Certified Space Technology in the form of the Insight Subluxation Station allows for the most technologically advanced evaluation procedure to assist in determining areas of nerve interference. This system will actually show differences in function as your body heals and changes.

At Bodywise Chiropractic Center, massage is more than a luxury. It promotes health by relieving stress, reducing muscle tension, increasing circulation and enhancing your overall energy and vitality.
By providing you with a wide range of therapeutic massage procedures, we aim to improve the quality of both your life and your health.
We cater to all our client's individual, medical needs and provide wellness care, deep tissue massage, sports massage, and recovery from injury. We also accept most personal injury protection insurance, and are therefore able to help you get the care you need at little or no cost to you if prescribed by the chiropractors. We have seen that massage in conjunction with chiropractic care offers tremendous healing and vitality.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
If a condition requires in-house rehabilitation, the Synergy Rehab System is used. This is a series of exercise bands and specific exercises geared to strengthening the small supportive muscles around the spine as well as the larger muscles that enable proper functioning of the extremities.
We also offer whole body vibration to help with your health and wellness. Whole body vibration is an expanding technology that is helping many people. On a WBV machine, the platform you stand on moves very rapidly. This controlled motion is transferred up through your body. All of your body tissues are forced to react to the stimulus of the vibrating platform. Blood flow increases considerably and more oxygen gets circulated throughout your body. Lymphatic drainage improves which aids in detoxification and increased bone mineral density. The way you position your body on the vibrating platform determines what tissues are affected. You have complete control over the body part you want to target and how challenging the workout is.
- WBV works and tones your muscles more efficiently than conventional exercises
- WBV increases your lymphatic drainage and the release of endorphins
- WBV trains your equilibrium sense for improved balance and coordination
- WBV enhances your blood flow and oxygenation
- WBV improves bone mineral density
- WBV lowers your stress hormone Cortisol
Cold Laser Therapy
Laser therapy has been successfully used around the world for over 25 years, with no reported long-term or irreversible side effects. Laser therapy provides the benefit of relieving pain, increasing the speed and strength of tissue repair, increasing blood suppy, stimulating the immune system, stimulating nerve function, healing muscle, reducing inflammation and even more. The device we use is the first ever device to be approved by the FDA for treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. It has been effective in treating arthritis pain, back pain, neck pain, bursitis, fibromyalgia, plantar fascitis, injuries, tendonitis, tennis elbow, sprains/strains and swelling.
The laser causes a photochemical reaction in the tissue that increases metabolism to speed up the cells repair and stimulate the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Dan Moore can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs. Standard Process is the supplement line of choice used by Dr. Dan Moore and can only be purchased from a doctor. A wellness supplement package is available at a discounted rate to all patients at Bodywise Chiropractic Center.

Acupuncture treats the human body as a whole that involves several "systems of function" that are in some cases loosely associated with (but not identified on a one-to-one basis with) physical organs. Many people seek acupuncture treatment for pain relief, smoking sessation, and weight loss among many other reasons. Dr. Todd Sparks is experienced in acupuncture treatment and has had great success working with a variety of conditions.
