DASSEL, MN Joining Phenomenal Rehab, and ultimately completing the Stellar Health Center umbrella in Dassel, is Preferred Choice Chiropractic.
With Preferred Choice Chiropractic comes Andrea Wahlin, DC, who started with Stellar Health, based out of Howard Lake, in March. She will be alternating her days between Howard Lake and Dassel.
Wahlin is originally from Cold Spring, and graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington in November 2011. Prior to that, she received a degree in nutrition from Mississippi State University.
“It’s a good combination. It works well together,” Wahlin said.
Wahlin knows firsthand what injuries are like, having had three surgeries in four years on her hips and back due to injuries from track.
This led her down the path to becoming a chiropractor and “helping people before it gets that bad,” she said.
In her line of work, she focuses a lot on muscles and getting to the root of the problem, rather than on immediate relief.
“It’s good to focus on the whole body,” she said.
Working with Craig Butturff and the staff at Phenomenal Rehab is also a plus for patients who want to do restrengthening and stretching exercises.
“They go hand-in-hand much of the time,” Wahlin said, referring to chiropractic care and physical therapy.
Wahlin is excited to be working in Dassel, where she will be available by appointment Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
