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.

First off this is a nice facility and the front staff is really friendly, Matt likes to be tickled .. Dr. Bob is friendly and out going and so is Dr. Josh. Dr. Bob likes to crack backs and Dr. Josh likes to use what i call the thumper..I wished i had known this before starting my care.On Wednesday Oct. 19 2016 Dr. Bob set my ribs in place by pushing on my back ... on Thursday he cracked my back as i laid on my side and i heard a huge crack and pain and i asked him if he broke my rib and he stated with a smile on his face, No he did not.. from then on i had pain every day it got worse, i came in Friday did my exercise and they adjusted me again...the weekend helped the pain from not being as bad, but on Monday i went in for exercise and adjusted me again i went home and i could not sleep, so much pain on my left side that it brought me to tear's, on Tuesday Oct. 25 2016 i went to get xray's to see if indeed he did break a rib and nothing.. i had a massage scheduled and was hoping that might help the pain but when i came in i didn't want to be touched and Dr. Bob took me into the xray room and took another xray and then asked me if i wanted my spin fixed i told him i don't know i have such intense pain and started to cry.. I have a high threshold to pain so for me to cry it really hurt... He knew i wanted to fix it but i felt pressured i told him i was here for a massage and he stated, do the massage and no adjusting..so i was ready to leave and was told i need adjusting by Dr. Josh when i asked about the pain he stated that some times the cartilage will pull away and that is what im feeling, when i got up it was so bad... when i was checking out it was just burning... I had a hard time getting in my car and when i got home i had a hard time getting out. It took me 6 days for the pain to be minimal. Thankfully it's not Cartilage issue...Dr. Bob need's to remember bed side manners. I was NOT on a groupon, my insurance paid for every thing.
I went to another Chiropractor to have two ribs put back in place and then i decided since my spine bent i would have them straighten me, the first day was fine then second day he cracked me so hard i had a sharp pain just under my bra line... I asked him if he broke my rib and he stated no, the pain got worse and every time i went in they would readjust me, only to cause more pain by the end of the weekend last week i was really sore, i went in on Monday and told them i was sore but they stated i need to readjust again, but Tuesday i was in tears i even had my dr. do an xray to make sure i didn't have a broken rib.. i went in for a massage and was told i had to readjust, i just couldn't do it but felt bullied into it.. i couldn't get back into my car i couldn't get out of my car.. my husband tried to help and hit my elbow and i was crying again.. i have a high thresh hold to pain but this was intense.. the next day i cancelled the rest of my appointments with them and i was eating Aleve like it was candy.. I was referred to this Dr. by my neighbor she stated they do NOT crack... they got me in on Sat. the 29th, i was really nervous. He worked my right side and just a little on left, i went back today and he did it again and my pain is almost gone and i feel a ton better.He actually lines you up...he has a table that you stand on then it lowers. He checks my alignment with my legs and feet and my head and my hands in different ways.. he uses a thumper is what i call it lol It's not painful.
My family and I have been seeing Dr. Gary and Dr. Jesse for 3 years now. At first I was skeptical about his tactics, but EVERYTHING he's ever done for us has worked. He treats the cause rather than the symptoms. At 1 yr old, my son fell off the couch and later that night starting puking. The regular doc. at Providence childrens' clinic said it was a stomach virus and to ride it out. After another 24hrs of throwing up I had Dr. Gary adjust him and he IMMEDIATELY felt 100% better and had an appetite. When I first started going, I had headaches that made me noxious, now my headaches are gone! My two year old had not developed any speech. The regular doc. suggested speech therapy and that everything seemed normal. Dr. Webb tested her nutrition levels and gave us a supplement for her. Within ONE WEEK she picked up 10 new words and has been gaining vocabulary consistently. My lower back used to have pain every time I would lay down flat, and my legs would ache. That pain is gone now as well. I have too many stories to post. I just wish that I knew about the Webbs a long time ago! (Also, I once tried a different chiropractor - thinking they were all the same. The are NOT all the same.)
I’m Alicia and I came to Dr. Omeads office. I found it on a Google search, and basically I am very skeptical going to any chiropractors because I respect my body and I don’t want to let just anyone mess with my spine. I’ve been really bloated, I have sinus problems, and when I came here this morning I couldn’t move my neck. After a very long and thorough examination I feel better. I’m smiling! And my nose feels better, my posture feels better, I’m actually a lot more aware of my neck now too which I’ve been holding, I thought I had good posture so I’m learning to heal myself and I’m going to come back and I hope you have a good session too.
I always recommend Anchorage Spinal Care to my friends. I let them know that I've received the BEST care there. I came to see Dr. Trekell back in 2001 when I was very nervous about chiropractic care. He immediately made me feel at ease with the whole exam. Ever since then I've been a happy returning customer. I've also had excellent care from Dr. Ketz. He is very easy to talk to and immediately addresses any areas of pain I have. They even offer massage therapy!Thank you for quality care!!
Most amazing experience I have ever had ...very helpful, knowledgeable, professional, kind, caring. Her unique approach has been life changing, I feel hope for the first time in regards to managing my pain, she definantly has made a great impact on my quality of life. I highly reccomend her to all types of patients with a wide range of issues. Her flexibileSchedule makes it easy to make appointments with a busy life
Dr. Mike does a great job of explaining everything before he even does any adjusting and I appreciate the time he takes and the concern he shows for his patients. Although he's a busy man, you don't feel like he's rushing you out the door and you can tell he really cares. Thanks Dr. Mike!
Excellent care. Chiropractor massage therapist are the best I have ever experienced. They really listen to you. Office staff us great about checking insurance benefits so there are no surprises when it comes time to pay.
