In addition to chiropractic care, ASF offers on-site X-ray, corrective exercises, massage therapy and Ideal Protein. Massage therapy relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. According to the ASF website, “Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care.” Darian Geisser, LMT, grew up in Helena and received professional training at the Denver School of Massage Therapy. She offers several therapeutic massage techniques: structural integration, trigger point therapy, sports massage, cranial sacral therapy, advanced deep tissue, reflexology and chair massage.
Dr. Lance Doppler is a Minnesotan by birth but a Montanan at heart. After spending part of his childhood in Lewistown, Mont., Doppler graduated from high school in Minnesota and attended the University of Mary in Bismarck, N.D. After returning to Minnesota for chiropractic college, Doppler ended up in back in Montana. “Helena has always been a place my wife loved. With lots of recreational activities such as boating, skiing, hiking and hunting, I didn’t argue!” Doppler aims to help the community stay active and healthy by keeping them pain free.
When it comes to how quickly patients can expect results, Dr. Doppler explains, “The most common complaints we treat are neck pain, headaches, low back pain and midback pain. People should notice immediate results. It is keeping those results that is difficult!” Doppler compares maintaining spinal fitness to taking care of our teeth: “You take care of them every day by flossing and brushing, plus you get them cleaned two times a year. Treat your spine well—exercise, eat healthy and get regular monthly chiropractic tune-ups.”
Doppler joined Helena’s Most Wanted “to be part of a new and upcoming [sic] business and to help support other small business owners like myself.” He loves the opportunities that Helena offers, as well as the welcoming nature of the people here. Advanced Spinal Fitness is open Monday through Friday, and by appointment on the weekend. To request an appointment, call 406-443-5510 or visit ASF online at www.asfofhelena.com.
