Over the years, this type of work has evolved into a recognized specialty within the chiropractic field. Dr. Andrew Bakken has completed certifications from the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians – Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner® (CCSP®) and from the Council on Extremity Adjusting – Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP). These certifications position Dr. Bakken as a highly trained Doctor of Chiropractic in evaluation and treatment from head to toe.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I have been suffering from sciatic pain for last 10 years. I have visited multiple doctors, and investigated many other types of treatment over the years with no relief or answers to what caused my intense pain.
    Dr. Bakken and his staff at Back in Action quickly diagnosed the cause of my pain and put an action plan together immediately to help me relive the pain I have experienced for 10 years.
    After a couple of visits I noticed a huge reduction in pain. I can't remember the last time I felt this great. Dr. Bakken's staff is excellent to work with and I highly recommend you visit them for any of your needs. I am a customer for life!"
    Truly grateful, Ted
