At Arndt Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our Bettendorf chiropractic office, but please call us at 563-332-2211 if you have any questions!
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Andrew Arndt has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
At Arndt Chiropractic Center, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Bettendorf chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Arndt Chiropractic Center provides on site X-ray services for its patients saving precious time for the patient and providing more time to concentrate on treatment.
Depending on the findings, the Doctor may call for an MRI or other imaging study from an outside facility if necessary.
Arndt Chiropractic Center is the only Chiropractic clinic in the Quad Cities with access to your radiology records with Genesis Health System, UnityPoint Health (Formerly Iowa Health System) and Metro MRI. Our Doctors and staff can look up your imaging studies prior to your visit or within minutes of the procedure being performed. This saves precious time for the patient that might have to otherwise wait for a diagnosis.
Custom Foot Orthotics
Orthotics are a great way to help with issues related with walking and alignment. Some of these include but are not limited to knee, foot and lower back pain. The need for orthotics is often related to an issue with the natural functioning of the foot. Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure off other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot. Orthotics are really great for anyone with an issue of discomfort relating to walking or imblances in the body that are known to cause related pain. The great benefit of orthotics is that they can be worn on a daily basis and be utilized for most activities to take further stress away from the body.
We have partnered with Footmaxx, which create affordable custom orthotics by utilizing state of the art scanning technology. These come with a 90 day money back guarantee and unlimited adjustments to how your orthotics fit during the first 45 days. Footmaxx strives to create the best orthotic to fit its clients. This is a great investment for your overall health and well being via a biomechanical standpoint.

Physiotherapy is an excellent way to help the body in the healing process. Arndt Chiropractic Center has a full physiotherapy suite to help our patients with their recovery. Services that we provide include: Cold Laser Therapy, Cryotherapy, Electrical Muscle Stimulation, Heat Therapy, Manual Therapy, Stretching, Therapeutic Exercise and Therapeutic Ultrasound.
Laser Therapy (Cold Laser Therapy) is an FDA approved treatment for many pain syndromes where the use of laser energy is used to create therapeutic effects. research has shown that these effects include improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling.
When laser light is absorbed by living tissue, it triggers biological reactions in the cells. Chemical substances are produced, released and carried by blood and lymphatic flow to other parts of the system. In this way the effects of cold laser light create broad systemic effects. Research on humans and animals document:
- Reduction in pain by causing production of natural pain killer endorphins.
- Reduction in inflammation by suppressing inflammatory enzymes that create swelling, redness, pain and heat.
- Enhanced lymphatic drainage, which increases circulation and reduces swelling.
- Release of tight muscles that create chronic pain, joint problems and decreased mobility.
- Faster bone repair by stimulating fibroblastic and osteoblastic proliferation
