The Spine and Scoliosis Clinic is located at 1728 Iowa Street, near the west side of Whatcom Falls Park, in Bellingham, WA.
Dr. Elizabeth Johnsen has helped transform the lives of thousands of patients in the last 10 years, and is loving helping her patients in Bellingham, Washington.
She helps people by eliminating the source of their back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, and joint pain. Utilizing the most scientific, researched, and results-oriented chiropractic technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics® or CBP, Dr. Elizabeth Johnsen is able to realign the spine back to health, and alleviate any nerve interference that may be causing pain, fatigue, organ, dysfunction, or disease.
What is CBP or Chiropractic BioPhysics®?
- Following a scientific analysis of your posture and the curvature of your spine, we will create a treatment plan based on your deficits, to restore proper alignment, relieve pain, and improve function. Your treatment plan may include a variety of tested and proven CBP techniques, including adjustment, exercise, and traction or what is termed ‘Spinal Remodeling’.
- Your spine houses your nervous system - the most delicate and important organ system – responsible for your day to day bodily functions. From your immune, cardiovascular, and digestive system, to sexual function and mobility – your nerves are responsible for sending vital information and energy from the brain to your organs through your spine.
Correct Your Posture & Live a Healthier more Active Life.
At the Spine and Scoliosis Clinic, we care about your spine and nervous system, and use the best equipment possible to diagnose your spinal biomechanics. Whether you need to get out of pain, avoid a spinal surgery, or interested in prolonging an active lifestyle, we can help you. We never cut corners and always do what's best for you and your posture. You can trust that we will take care of you.
Correct posture is at the core of the Chiropractic BioPhysics method of treatment. The curves in your spine act as levers, shock absorbers, and resistance to gravity; they also protect and reduce forces acting on the spinal cord and nerve tissues.
Gravity, age, poor posture, improper physical activity, injury, and disease can all play a role in the misalignment of your spinal curves and, as a result, your entire body.
Will greet you, and let you know where to go and what to do for each of your visits. You will be asked at the beginning of each visit to travel with your "travel card" throughout your visit, and, at the end of your visit, please check out with the front desk and turn in your "travel card".
This is when you can make payment or change an appointment time around if needed.
If you miss a visit, we do ask that you make up a visit that week or double up on the following week. If you need more time with the doctor please let the front desk know - they can schedule that!
