TIMES STAFF REPORT
The concept of “health” has many facets, just as the human body and mind have many parts. Chiropractic care is one specialty that tends to a person’s health and well-being, and Minser Chiropractic Clinic was voted the Best Chiropractor in the 2017 Best of Central Minnesota contest. Mary Beth Minser, who owns the clinic and also practices there, answered the Times’ questions about chiropractics.
Why is it important to you to work for Minser Chiropractic?
At Minser Chiropractic Clinic, our motto is “Where Health Happens”. I believe we see that happening throughout the day with patients. The clinic focuses on women’s and children’s health issue but includes all family members. There is no better feeling than helping a colicky baby sleep better at night and seeing the relief in the eyes of the parents. Or being able to help a pregnant women ease the pain that comes with a growing pregnant belly and be able to enjoy every minute of that miracle. Working at Minser Chiropractic allows me to be able to treat these conditions in a caring environment where our No. 1 focus is helping our patients achieve the best health possible. Plus, working with other dynamite doctors and staff is a joy.
If you could give just one health tip to the people of Central Minnesota, what would it be?
Invest in your health. We spend money on our cars, phones, TVs and pets, but we far too often do not spend money on our own health or the health of our families. Maintaining good health is a multi-factorial event. It includes how you sleep, eat, breathe, move and think. The nervous system controls these functions and that is what chiropractic is built on. Most people think chiropractors work with bones or are the “bone doctor,” when in actuality we work more with the circuitry and function of the nervous system.
What is the best part of your job? What is the most challenging part?
The best part of the job is working with patients and great staff. Every day is different. I never know what condition will walk through the door nor how far-reaching my services can be in influencing a person’s life. I enjoy the diversity of conditions and the infants, children, adolescents, mothers, fathers and seniors. It is truly amazing. And the most challenging part? Paperwork!
What do you want Times readers to know about your business that they might not already know?
We offer a variety of services that include chiropractic care, acupuncture, nutritional counseling, rehab/personal training, DOT and drug screens for local employers, sports physicals, digital X-ray, massage and much more. We have all the tools to take care of our patients we treat to help them achieve their health goals. It is the goal and passion of the clinic to keep Central Minnesota healthy, naturally!
