Dr. Michelle Lelwica, DC
Graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College and Northwestern Health Sciences University, I have been practicing Chiropractic in the Twin Cities and the Brainerd Lakes area for over 20 years. My focus in the Lakes Area clinic has been restoring normal function, alignment and neurological function to my patients through a rehabilitative chiropractic approach to care. I also love working with patients utilizing lifestyle approaches and clinical nutrition for weight loss, natural hormonal balancing, and other systemic dysfunctions that can be treated more effectively with a natural, functional medicine approach. I utilize a multi-specialty approach to treating many of our patients. Our clinic includes Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Massage Therapists, and also a very large Cybex gym that allows us to offer a very comprehensive approach to treating patients.

Learn about Dr. Lelwica

Care Philosophy

The majority of our patients are referred to our clinic from current patients or from other Lakes Area providers. I believe in a team approach to patient care.    We are a multi-specialty clinic with Doctors of Chiropractic, Physical Therapy Providers, and Massage Therapists.  We utilize a comprehensive, big picture point of view.   We teach our patients what is wrong, how to fix it, and how to stay well after our care plan is implemented.   In many cases, we also use lifestyle changes and clinical nutrition in working with weight loss, natural hormone balancing, or other systemic dysfunctions that are more effectively treated with functional medicine than drugs or surgery.    Our care plans are based on the cause of our patient's problems and on their goals that we want to obtain.  We teach our patients, "Come for pain relief, but stay for wellness."

I would and have recommended friends & family to go to Dr. Lelwica. She has helped me get rid of a terrible arm & back pain and has kept the pain from returning with monthly follow-ups for maintenance. Also, there are physical therapists in the her office and a exercise gym. How handy to have that in one building! She is professional, caring and fun! All the staff she employs are the same!
