At Arndt Family Chiropractic, 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 Dublin office.
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle 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, BS, DC, FICPA, DACCP Tricia Arndt has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises 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. 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.
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 patient is a whole person, and helping 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? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At Arndt Family Chiropractic, we provide only the highest quality nutritional products. They are manufactured by Standard Process, Inc. which uses their own patented process to produce whole food supplements. This is done by Low- Temperature, High-Vacuum Dryers which preserve the vital nutrients in the food which would otherwise be destroyed by increased heat. It is this method that sets Standard Process apart from all other supplement companies.
Prenatal Chiropractic Care
Many women are seeking chiropractic care during pregnancy not only for pain relief associated with pregnancy, but for overall health benefits for mom and baby.
As a mother's weight increases, her center of gravity shifts. Postural compensations occur, leading to instability and misalignment of the spine and pelvis. The mother's pelvis has key ligaments attached to support the uterus. As the baby grows, their role becomes increasingly important. If her pelvis is well- aligned, the uterus will be supported symmetrically. This allows for greater comfort of the mother and better positioning for the baby's development. Proper alignment of both mother and child can lead to a safer, easier birth.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care
More parents are choosing chiropractic care for their children. Many common newborn health complaints such as colic, torticollis, nursing difficulties, and reflux could have occurred during the birthing process. Even having a "natural" birth can put stress on the developing spine and nervous system.
The spinal column houses and protects the spinal cord and its important nerve pathways. The nervous system controls and coordinates all of the systems in our body, such as respiratory, digestive, and immune system. If any bone of the spine, called vertebrae, goes out of alignment, it can impair proper function to whatever system it's controlling.
The Doctor of Chiropractic will remove these misalignments by a specific and gentle adjustment, therefore removing nerve irritation and allowing the body to function at full potential.
At Arndt Family Chiropractic, we recognize the importance of periodic chiropractic checkups to ensure healthy growth of the spine. Spinal problems that go undetected or neglected in children can become more serious problems in adults and compromise the child's quality of life. Our office looks forward to helping you and your family achieve greater health!
The Webster Protocol is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis and diversified adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction. As a result, neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved.
Dr. Larry Webster, the founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, developed this adjustment as a safe means to restore proper balance and function. This can improve comfort for the mother throughout pregnancy in preparation for a safer, easier birth. He reported that in women who presented with a breech baby,results of the adjustment appeared to normalize pelvic neuro-biomechanics and facilitate optimal fetal positioning.
Only Doctors of Chiropractic with training through the ICPA maintain recognized status as Webster Certified. Dr. Arndt has been Webster Certified since 2000.

Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy, otherwise known as Low Level Laser Therapy, is an elite tool for rehabilitation reinforced by the scientific literature in the field. It is used to treat inflammation, provide deep tissue therapy and accelerate pain relief. It offers an alternative to analgesics, NSAIDS, and other medications.
Cold laser therapy works to photo bio stimulate chemically damaged cells by way of specific wave lengths of coherent light. The photons penetrate the tissues to trigger a biological response. The cell membranes absorb the photons by way of a photo chemical effect that is not photo thermal. Therefore, it will not cause heat damage to the tissue.
This specific type of therapy can be beneficial in conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, headaches, plantar fasciitis, and numerous other neuro/ musculoskeletalconditions. It is non-invasive and has no side effects or pain.
