Dr. Lori Jokinen is a Doctor of Chiropractic in Woodbury, MN specializing in functional medicine, pediatrics, pregnancy, and acupuncture. She incorporates nutrition into all of her patients’ care. The most common conditions she assesses with diagnostic labs and uses nutritional approaches to correct are:
- thyroid and autoimmune disorders
- digestive problems
- inability to lose weight
- hormone dysfunction
- nutritional deficiencies
Whether you have a new injury, chronic pain, nutritional questions, need help with weight loss, hormones, digestion, have a colicky baby, sick child or are pregnant, I would be happy to discuss your condition with you and let you know how I can help! I seek to provide the most comprehensive treatments in chiropractic and nutrition in Woodbury and the surrounding areas.
The foundation of my practice is to find the underlying causes of symptoms patients are experiencing by conducting a thorough history and examination, running targeted diagnostic lab testing, and giving natural support to the body. This can be in the form of:
- Chiropractic treatment
- Specific dietary and supplement recommendations
- Pressure point therapy
- Graston technique
- Strengthening programs
As each patient is different in their presentation, I believe each patient should have an individualized approach to their care. With over 15 years of experience in nutrition and detoxification, I incorporate these principles into each patient’s treatment plan to help them attain true health.
, also referred to as functional medicine, views the body as a whole, with organized systems interacting and having an effect on each other. Standard approaches separate organs into different categories, such as cardiology for the heart, endocrinology for the hormones, or gastroenterology for the gastrointestinal system. By viewing the body as a whole and seeking to uncover the root cause of disease, functional health treats the whole body, not just symptoms. Provider and patient work together to construct a detailed timeline history, which is key to proper diagnosis.
