Welcome to Dr. Michael Weber office
Body Works Inc. was founded as Weber Chiropractic in 1990 by Dr. Michael Weber, DC, ART in the Lead/Deadwood area. There the practice stayed for five years, acquiring some of our present patients. In 1995, the practice moved to Spearfish where it has had great success in improving the lives of many patients. Still, Dr. Michael Weber was unsatisfied because of the number of cases not responding to traditional chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage, or other types of medical care.
In 2002 he discovered Active Release Techniques, ART, a medically patented technique developed by Dr. Michael Leahy. Dr. Michael Weber was amazed at the ART treatment he personally received which immediately resolved his chronic shoulder, knee, and ankle problems that had responded minimally to other types of care. Dr. Michael Weber states, “ART gave me my life back.” I got my “game” back, I began running, cycling, swimming, etc.. I give all of the credit to ART.” ART has since become very popular to many US Olympic athletes. Many pro and college sports teams have an ART provider working on their athletes on the sidelines during games. This is now Dr. Michael Weber’s eighth year practicing ART.
A chiropractic adjustment can make you feel so much better. Your body does not want to be out of alignment, and that’s exactly what an adjustment can help address. It is also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation. The adjustment refers to the manipulation of the vertebrae that have abnormal movements and are not functioning properly. A chiropractic adjustment will assist in fixing these issues.
Corrective exercises are the use of bodily movements and/or postures to restore desirable changes in diseased or injured tissues. The corrective exercises are movement strategies that minimize or eliminate compensation. Corrective exercises should precede more integrated exercises, because they can cue the patient’s motor system to respond in a more desirable way and assist in removing or improving biomechanical constraints.
Since back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, it is vital to know how to prevent the cause of back pain. By maintaining a healthy diet and weight, remaining active and avoiding prolonged inactivity or bed rest are all important ways to avoid back pain. Before doing exercises or any physical activity, it is recommended to warm up and/or stretch.
Knee pain is increasingly becoming a more common problem in society. It is a complaint we see frequently. The most common complaint associated with knee pain is considered the normal “wear and tear.” Another ailment that affects the knee is osteoarthritis. The symptoms and progression of osteoarthritis and knee pain can be reduced through our individualized approach to chiropractic care.
The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. The cervical spine supports the full weight of your head which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.
We provide excellent chiropractic care to help our patients reach and exceed their health goals.
