WELCOME TO Functional Performance Chiropractic and Wellness
Welcome to Functional Performance Chiropractic and Wellness with two convenient locations in Omaha, Nebraska, one in northwest Omaha and one in southwest Omaha. At Functional Performance our mission is in keeping with Dr. Nate's Army training to "BE KNOW DO" more for our patients. We strive to BE the doctor our patients are looking for, to meet their needs and provide the care the want to help them pursue their goals for health and wellness.
Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what it's all about. We are here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our Southwest Omaha chiropractors and also our Northwest Omaha chiropractors can help you and your family.
Functional Performance Chiropractic and Wellness
We strive to KNOW all that we can in order to help our patients return to health and constantly pursue the best knowledge and treatments available in order to provide our patients with the best care possible. We strive to DO by practicing what we preach and living a wellness-focused lifestyle that includes eating, moving, and thinking well and we strive to teach our patients that they are built to be healthy and live long happy and healthy lives.
Symptoms We Help
Most people are aware that chiropractic care is effective for neck and back pain and at our two Omaha locations we do treat a lot of those conditions. We also work with patients with headaches including migraines, vertigo (dizziness), TMJ issues, hip, knee and ankle pain. Dr. Nate, due to a history of shoulder pain and dysfunction has also completed post graduate study on shoulder function and rehab so, if he had a specialty, it would probably be shoulders. In addition, Dr. Nate and Dr. Bret are both certified in functional dry needling and they both perform a multitude of soft tissue treatments to include IASTM, soft tissue release and use of stim. In addition to those techniques, Dr. Bret and Dr. Nate both offer low force options for patients who prefer a gentler touch. In addition, Dr. Nate has completed the CCWP program and has spent the last 7 years teaching wellness lifestyle workshops on topics such as nutrition and fitness for a long and healthy life!
There are many misconceptions about what chiropractic is and how it most effectively used. For example, we have heard it said that, "Once you start seeing a chiropractor, you have to keep going for the rest of your life." Our goal is always to take care of the issue that brought you in to the office first. Many of our patients experience such amazing results that they will choose to continue with some form of ongoing care and evidence is available to suggest that ongoing care will in fact reduce recurrences of pain but, ongoing care is not mandatory by any means. In addition, many people believe that chiropractors only focus on back and neck pain and that they don't necessarily treat extremity problems. At Functional Performance we take a whole-body, functional approach to chiropractic care and have worked on nearly every joint and muscle in the body. Lastly, often patients think they need to see their MD prior to coming in to see a chiropractor. Chiropractic doctors are primary care and can be seen without referral. Chiropractors receive rigorous training on spinal anatomy and physiology as well as injury rehabilitation and are very well equipped to manage your care, no referral needed.
What Makes Us Unique
Why should you choose Functional Performance Chiropractic for you and your family? What sets us apart in Omaha is our constant pursuit of knowledge on the most up to date and effective chiropractic and rehab treatments. We do work with a lot with athletes in Omaha, which has helped us to learn and understand what proper, pain-free movement looks like and how to return people to effective functional movement patterns. Real life requires movement and knowing how to spot and help to correct broken movement patterns through chiropractic and rehabilitative care is our specialty. With the knowledge we've gained working with athletes from all sports and all walks of life, we are better prepared to help anyone learn to move and function better.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know us, our mission as stated above is to work hard to BE, KNOW, and DO for the people of Omaha. If modern and effective chiropractic care is something you're looking for, we would be privileged to be your doctor!
