Montana Chiropractic welcomes new D.C. with focus on peds

BIG SKY – Local chiropractor Jeff Saad, D.C., has added some help to his small practice, Montana Chiropractic, in Big Sky Town Center. Lisa Lundstrom, D.C., moved to Big Sky permanently in November after selling her Rapid City, S.D. practice in summer 2014, and began chiropractic work in early December. She brings an extensive background to the area, and one with a little-known focus.

“I have a huge pediatric chiropractic background,” says Lundstrom, who in 1998 received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minn., and who trained under Anne Langford, D.C., in St. Paul, Minn., with a focus on pediatric work.

While Lundstrom adjusts people of all ages, she saw a need in the Big Sky community that she was happy to fill. “There are so many [chiropractic] studies on kids it’s not even funny,” she says. “A missing piece in the healthcare field in Big Sky is … adjusting kids.”

Lundstrom points to the balance and health benefits that chiropractic work has on people, and says that starting young can benefit a child whether they play tennis or ski. As for overall health, she adds, chiropractic work is being prescribed these days for everything from colic and ear infections to teething, pneumonia, asthma and migraine headaches.

“It’s healing from the inside, out,” Lundstrom says. “The true meaning of chiropractic is releasing that nerve root – the nervous system. If you live life with a balanced nervous system and your nerves are free-flowing, your life is better from every aspect.”

As the official chiropractor for the Big Sky Ski Education Foundation, Lundstrom was drawn to the beauty of the area, as well as the ability for her two daughters, Ashley and Macy, to ski.

BSSEF U-16 skier Sam Johnson is addicted to Lundstrom’s treatments, according to his mother, Martha Johnson. “It’s amazing,” Martha said. “He feels better and the coolest thing is that he said, ‘Mom, I think I could be a [Doctor of] Chiropractic.’”

But Lundstrom’s adjustments aren’t relegated to the young or the avid skier, she says. “Everybody needs to be adjusted. It depends on how often.”
