I met Dr. James Zielinski while browsing through row of vendors at one of the shows held at Sullivan Arena here in Anchorage. Through our conversation, I came to know that he was in the chiropractic field and obviously a caring, knowledgeable and dedicated professional. His explanations broke down a complex field of practice into terms I could easily and clearly understand. Dr; Zielinski’s clinic was having a promotional special which he invited me to. After years of suffering in horribly debilitating back and neck pain, I finally decided to take a step forward and really do something about it. Shortly after the show, I took a deep breath and walked into his office. I did not realize at the time that this would be the best “steps forward” that I would ever take. To tell you the truth, it did not take only a session or two to “cure” my pain. There was a lifetime of problems to be addressed and so much work to be done. Dr. Zielinski took such excellent care of me from the word “go”. He patiently listened and learned about my overall health before administering his healing physical manipulations and therapy. After only having worked on me for a few weeks, the results were amazing! My pain was completely gone and I felt so much better. But here is the really good kicker. Because of Dr. Zielinski’s wonderful treatments, my body has become painlessly-fluid and much more active than ever before. I have truly surprised myself by the new things I have tried: rock climbing, high-elevation hiking, monofining, compound bow-shooting, to name a few. Just pick something and I have probably done it or will be doing it soon. Another side benefit of my increasing activity has been a weight loss, which I have kept off now for three years. But remember, none of the above-mentioned changes could have been made without the most important first step, addressing my pain through chiropractic care. If you go to see Dr. Zielinski for relief and healing and do precisely as he advises, I promise you will find that relief from pain and the changes through healing that you seek and in good measure. You deserve the most complete healing, the deepest and the most positive and productive change, and nothing will stop you from finding it in Dr. Zielinski’s office.

It is the mission of North Star Chiropractic to improve as many lives as possible through the correction of the vertebral subluxation complex (VSC). Our intention is to help our practice members achieve optimal health and wellness through chiropractic adjustments. By correcting nervous system interference we enable people to maximize their full innate intelligence therefore maximizing their full human potential. We intend to educate our practice members allowing them the empowerment to take charge of their health. Everyday more people like you are becoming conscious about their health and well-being, and that of their children and/or family. VSC often times does not produce pain or discomfort until it has progressed to an advanced stage. This is more evident in our pediatric population. The most critical time in life to have an optimum performing nervous system is when the body is growing and developing. The Insight Subluxation Station ™ has specific settings for infants and children. This technology helps me to identify these problems before they become symptomatic. Professional athletes like Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong and Dan O’Brian three time world champion and Olympic decathlon gold medallist, depend on their bodies and realize the important role their spine plays in allowing them to function at peak performance. I am very proud to be bringing the same level of technology that professional and world class athletes are using to my patients. Because having a subluxation free spine and nervous system is an essential component of optimum health, my vision and mission is to serve the community by promoting optimum wellness and health. In practice as well as online, we strive for excellence through first class care, education, and satisfaction. Within this site you will find all types of health-related information. Information about our office and services, chiropractic, wellness care, pediatric care, diet and nutrition, back and neck pain, work and auto injuries, a monthly health newsletter and much, much more. We hope you enjoy the information and share it with others. Again, thank you for visiting and remember to come back often. Yours in Wellness, Dr. Michael Hanifen, B.S., D.C. Owner
I cut my finger pretty bad preparing dinner, I just knew I needed stiches. Being so late in the day my options were the emergency room or First Care. I have to say I am glad I chose to go here. When I arrived I was brought back to the room right away, the staff was so nice. I was a bit nervous since this was my first time getting stiches, but the doctor explained the process to me, and before I knew it I was done. As I was leaving I made sure to let the staff know that I was so grateful they were open and there for me when I needed them. A couple days later they called me to see how I was doing. I would definetely recommend this clinic.
