Dr. Linden is a Dubuque native and 2015 Dean’s List Graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Dr. Linden has been an athlete for the majority of his life, and had seen many injuries improved through holistic care, one of those being Chiropractic. This inspired Dr. Linden to pursue a career that not only made individuals feel better, but did it naturally.
Dr. Linden uses a very unique model when examining a patient. He starts his checks in the low back, and moves to the hips, knees, ankles, mid back, upper back, neck, shoulders, elbows, and wrists. This is very important, as a patient should look at his/her body like a house. If the foundation of the body (Ex: hips/knees/ankles) is off, the above structure may suffer (Ex: low back/upper back/neck). If a pain is consistently present, or comes back after a short time, the ACTUAL problem may not be getting the treatment it needs to in order to restore full function.
The spine is a very important part of the overall health of the body. Dr. Linden looks at both the structure (spine and extremities) and the function (nervous system) when pain and dysfunction is present. If there is a misalignment anywhere in the body, pressure may be put on a nerve, causing the nerve to send mixed signals to wherever it connects. This can result in pain, numbness, weakness, and even organ dysfunction.
The highest priority to Dr. Linden is informing the community that they DO have choices. Pain, whether it be in the neck, back, toe, hand, ANYWHERE, has a cause and method of which it developed. Dr. Linden takes his time to diagnose and help make the patient aware of how Chiropractic can help NATURALLY ease problems and pain.
A goal of Dr. Linden is to make Chiropractic as affordable as possible. He is a part of multiple insurance companies, making out of pocket expense as little as possible. Dr. Linden strives to give patients the best possible treatment to get them back to his/her life before the problem occurred.
