"Dr. Backlund is a miracle worker! I broke my foot 5 months ago, and the pain would not go away. After doing some adjustments, in just one visit, the pain is gone. I had numbness in my hand and arm, and that is completely gone as well. Dr. Backlund told me I was "toxic" and gave me some supplements, and within days, the rash on my chest disappeared and my skin looked better. Amazing! Twenty years ago I discovered Chiropractic Kinesiology, and it was the only thing that worked to alleviate my chronic back pain from a herniated disc. I don't know why everyone in the world isn't visiting doctors like Dr. Backlund because this stuff WORKS. It's great to have a doctor who asks so many questions and looks at the whole "me" instead of just looking at my symptoms.Thank you again, and I look forward to my next visit with you!"

"It's been almost a year that I had my first visit with Dr. Backlund. I was having alot of joint pain and cramping in my legs. I was also very overweight. All I wanted to do was sit and watch TV. I just felt miserable! At my first treatment, Dr. Backlund discovered with a kinesiological assessment that I was sensitive to a number of foods. By balancing out my nervous system, my metabolism started to work again. I also started to eliminate the food sensitivities from my diet. With the changes in my body, I was able to drop 40 pounds in 5 months without exercises or dieting. I didn't feel hungry or deprived and there was no nasty food cravings. With the advice of Dr. Backlund, I added an exercise routine and was able to drop another 45 pounds in the next 6 months. I have seen so many dramatic changes, not only the shedding of pounds and no more aches, but I can focus better and I more confidence. I also have more energy to do the things I loved doing that I never thought I never thought I would do again. Working with Dr. Backlund on my return to a "Healthy Life"is one of the most important decisions I have ever made."

"Dr. Backlund has helped me with my low-back pain and fatigue when no other doctor could. I spent 2 1/2 to 3 years trying to get better when other medical doctors and chiropractors could only make me feel ok for a short period of time. Since I started treatment with Dr. Backlund, I have felt better with more energy than I have in 10 years. If you think that feeling ok is normal, IT IS NOT! Come and try someone who can help you with your overall health. Thanks Dr. Backlund!"

"My twelve year old son was having severe anxiety, panic attacks and his mind was racing with worry and obsessive thoughts. I took him to see Dr. Backlund and the change has been dramatic. Dr. Backlund is very thorough and explained everything he was doing and why he was having these attacks and thoughts. He also gave my son simple brain exercises to do at home. My son is also in sports and he gives him great exercises to strengthen and stretch his muscles. I am so grateful that my son has a smile on his face again and no longer is having panic attacks. He loves seeing Dr. Backlund."

"I took my son, then 13, to Dr. Backlund seeking help with persistent Mono after seeing several MDs and getting no help. My son was unable to eat without severe nausea and heartburn, he had aches and pains and was extremely tired all the time. In just a few weeks he was eating and running around again. Dr. Backlund was also working on some brain balance issues my son was having and I noticed a significant change in his behavior. He is no longer anxious and getting stuck in his anger and fear. He is now getting caught up on his school work and is better able to understand what he is learning."

"As a mental health therapist in the metro community, I am often referred children, adolescents and adults who suffer from ADHD, anxiety, anger, and a host of other diagnoses. Many parents and individuals would rather use medication only as the last resort. Dr. Justin Backlund has done excellent work in discovering what techniques might work for a person which are noninvasive and can be reinforced at home. Chiropractic Kinesiology is a great adjunct to mental health therapy and uses a holistic approach as well. I highly recommend Dr. Backlund."

"I have had RH since 1973. During that time I have taken much cortisone on various forms. The last few years I was able to get off of it except when I had to deal with viruses and colds. When I came to see Dr. Backlund on Sept 12, 2011. I had just finished a forth sessions of prednisone and antibiotics since February 2011. In addition to the prednisone and antibiotics I would take cough drops. I became weaker and weaker. Dr. Backlund checked me for food and chemical sensitivities and neurological function. Among other things, I am sensitive to sugar. My cough drops had sugar. I also had a sensitivity to dairy and gluten that was not detected by conventional lab testing. Because of Dr. Backlund’s testing, my diet has changed considerably, I am doing Core Balance exercises and I avoid things that I now know I am sensitive to. Dr. Backlund used very precise and specific clinical nutrition to detox my body. When I first came to Dr. Backlund I could not walk down the stairs to his office. He examined me in one of the examination rooms up-stairs for our first two visits. Now one month later I am able to walk four blocks. What a joy to be getting my life back. Thank you Dr. Backlund."

"Dear Dr. Backlund, I recently had about with BPPV or Benign Vertigo. This was by far the most debilitating, scary “sickness” I have ever experienced. The onset was instant and the dizziness was indescribable. I completely lost control of all coordination. When it first hit, I was on the floor in the fetal position screaming “Make it stop, what’s happening?”. My husband was barely able to load me into our car and we visited the doctor at the Apple Valley Medical Center. Although the doctor there was very nice he was only able to prescribe anti-motion sickness medication which really didn’t help at all. He told me that this usually fixes itself in a week or so. There was no way I could go through this for a week! So 3 days in, still having intense dizziness and being unable to sleep through the night, I decided I needed to call Dr. Backlund for an emergency visit. Not only did he show up at 5pm that same day, completely out of his schedule, he brought his knowledge of the human body and fixed me in 20 minutes. I was amazed by his thoroughness and the testing he used to help eliminate all the variables. When he finally had it pinned down he adjusted my shoulders and neck and utilized some techniques specifically for vertigo. With-in 30 seconds of beginning the techniques, the dizziness had dramatically decreased. He even went a step further, he taught me these techniques to do myself in case the dizziness would come back, I could make it stop. The dizziness never did return, and I can’t thank Dr. Backlund enough. He truly saved my week and brought me back from one of the scariest situations I have ever been in! I thank him very much for his great work and dedication to his patients!"

"Dr. Backlund has helped me with his healing skills and alternative approach to health. He has assisted me in shedding aches and pains in my back, neck, and hip. I feel that we are partners in my healing. While I am a full participant in my own healing, Dr. Backlund coaches me through all that he finds in my body - what my body likes and does not like. I can tell that he is right because of the way my body responds to his muscle (strength) testing. At the end of an appointment, I know where I stand, how much progress I have made, and what the plan is for me to achieve optimal health. Then I have control through my choice to do what he recommends. I believe that each of us has the power to choose our own health. Our minds have amazing power. You can read about this in many books. A few examples are, The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. , The Molecules of emotion by Candace Pert, Ph.D., and The Spontaneous Healing of Belief by Gregg Braden. An older book, You Can Heal Your life by Louise Hay is also an awesome resource. I know we can heal our own lives because I did this for myself. Eighteen years ago I was diagnosed with M.S. and had a pretty rough go of it for 13 years. Then on July 30, 2005, I assessed my life and decided I did not need to have M.S. any longer. And guess what? I have not had any M.S. attacks since. I believe I can heal myself of my aches and pains as well and so can you! Dr. Backlund is supporting me in that belief and on my healing journey. He will do the same for you! Be well. Choose health. Choose health care providers that support your health and your positive beliefs. Dr. Backlund is your partner in healing!"

"Over the years, I have tried all of the various diets/gimmicks/plans. You name it: Atkins; South Beach; the soup diet; the grapefruit diet; Weight Watchers (several times); Jenny Craig; Women’s Workout World, “Bootcamp” at the Grove. The list goes on. Although I managed some level of success with each of these plans, most progress was short lived, and unfortunately, the pounds would ‘find’ me, after I lost them. Starting with Justin it was different. Working with Justin improved my success with weight loss, where other workout alternatives had failed. First, Justin is well trained, and knowledgeable. His education and work experience allows him to provide current information not only about exercise, but also nutrition, physiology, chiropractic, and other health areas. My workouts with Justin include time for questions, on all related subjects. It is obvious to me that he knows his industry, and can answer the questions I have. Second, Justin started with me, at the level I was at. He didn’t judge or condescend, he merely started a process with me, which I could not start on my own. He has provided various workout options, some basic, as well as some challenging. Ten months ago, if you would have told me that I could do numerous crunches, lift 20 pound dumbbells, or jog on a treadmill, I would have laughed out loud. Now I can do all of these things on a regular basis! Third, working with Justin has taught me what works for me. Learning about myself, and basics of weight loss and well as overall health issues will allow me to continue to lose weight, and strengthen the areas which need it the most. AND, his direction has given me the confidence to know that I will get where I want to be!. Finally, although I have not yet attained my original goal (I’ve lost 27 pounds); I have achieved other milestones I didn’t expect. My cholesterol is now 153; I have lost more than three clothes sizes; the pain in joints, etc. is a thing of the past; I can see bones and muscles I haven’t seen in years; I look younger, I feel younger, I’m getting compliments from unlikely sources; I smile more, and I like to see my picture! But most importantly, my family is proud of me for setting a goal, and pursuing it! Thanks Justin! I couldn’t have done it without you!"

"A few years back, I started having more and more aches in my neck, shoulders and arms. After going to a different Chiropractor and orthopedist, we discovered that I had a herniated disc in my cervical spine. My issues started decades prior when I had a couple of bad car accidents. The Chiropractor said he couldn't help me and the Orthopedist wanted to operate. Fortunately, I met Dr. Justin and he was able to use his skills to assess the situation and apply the necessary adjustments. I am now pain free and did not need to go through unnecessary surgical procedures. I am very impressed with Dr. Justin's abilities and his professionalism. He has an overall approach to the body and doesn't just treat the area where the pain is. He knows that the cause of the problem could be in a different part of the body and not where the actual pain is. I recommend to all my friends that they should go see Dr. Justin when they are feeling pain and/or weakness. I get adjustments even when not feeling pain just to make sure my body stays in alignment. Thank you Dr. Backlund."
