Testimonial

Dr. Chris has been instrumental in helping me find truly vibrant health
from within! I have layers of issues varying from minor to somewhat major
that have appeared over time, and I wouldn’t have known how to address them without Dr. Chris’s help. He is able to interpret what is happening in my body and address the symptoms at a foundational level, restoring true health in me. He has helped me heal from infection, is helping me repair a torn rotator cuff, and generally stay strong and keep up a fairly active lifestyle. Not to mention the daily dose of humor that accompanies each office visit. Healthcare has never been more fun!

I began care with Dr. Chris for a lower back issue that had given me trouble on and off over the years, but had recently flared due to beginning a new workout regime. Dr. Chris took the time to really evaluate me from both a physical perspective and understanding my lower back concerns, but also completed a more holistic evaluation to understand my overall health. He took the time to share his thoughts on my health, ideas on improvement, and we crafted a plan together. A few months into our plan, I feel great and have seen improvement in my lower back pain as well as overall health improvement from a quality of life perspective and feel great! Dr. Chris always takes time to listen to my concerns and is open to finding the right solution for me and not just a cookie-cutter response and definitely doesn’t limit his care to what people may perceive as back care.

I initially came to Dr Chris Frykman to resolve nagging ankle and achilles tendon pain. I’m an avid runner and wannabe triathlete, and the ankle pain was so limiting that I couldn’t run at all and it was also impacting my cycling. Needless to say, this was a major blow to my lifestyle! After a thorough consultation and a very holistic examination, Dr Frykman and I sat down and designed a program that met my needs and propelled me to levels of health I haven’t experienced in some time. Not only am I back to running pain free on my favorite trails, but we are continuing to work on healing strategies that improve my body’s ability to recover from daily workouts. My care at Transforming Chiropractic has profoundly improved my quality of life for years to come. Thanks Dr Frykman.

imagined! With 4 active kids, a career, and the demands and pressures I put on myself to
maximize my life and Ironman Triathlon Training, I had forgotten how it felt to feel this good
and energized all day, every day. Thanks so much for all the guidance and help Dr Chris.

Dr Chris Frykman has saved me from major pain the last few years.
I had searched around and went to many different doctors for pain in my back. He was the first to see what was wrong and within a few minutes I had adjustments and tape and NO PAIN. I was like, “Are you kidding me?”
I recommend Dr Frykman’s services to anyone in pain. There’s no need to keep suffering.

It’s hard to believe that after months of daily constant headaches (before finding Transforming Chiropractic), that I’ve been headache free for a month now. I can’t tell you how much it means to be able to get up out of bed in the morning pain-free. It’s a life changer! Thanks for the loads of education about how health works. Your skillful and compassionate care set you apart from the rest.

I’ve been suffering from severe back pain for about 4 years now and depression and stress since I was a child. I am now 31. I suffer from 2 bulging discs, scoliosis, I’ve broken my neck and have numerous other health problems. My back pain was so bad I couldn’t even play with my kids which was the one thing in my life that I valued most. I am on lots of pain medications and depression medications …and I thought this was the way the rest of my life was going to be. Then I went to Dr. Chris Frykman at Uptown Minneapolis Chiropractic and Kinesiology and my life has changed. After just the first visit I felt so relaxed which I haven’t felt in years. He has given me a new lease on life. He has so much passion about what he does. I would definately recommend Dr. Chris Frykman to anyone who experiences back pain.

I first came to see Dr. Chris at Transforming Chiropractic due to a condition with my arm in which I was unable to sleep through the night without waking up in excruciating pain. This condition had come on gradually, seemingly out of nowhere, and I could not figure out what was going on or who to go to for help. I had to take pain relievers so that I could sleep and I really did not want to have to resort to that.

After a free phone consult with Dr. Chris, I decided to come in and start treatment because of the caring that he conveyed. I felt that he was a person who truly wants to help people.

Over the course of my care, we decided to run a functional medicine assessment to learn more about the chemical side of my cells and he put me on a detoxification and nutritional protocol. We ran stress response evaluations in which he was able to tell me about how my body responds to the stress of everyday living. I was amazed at how accurately he was able to describe me based off of that.

Recently, we were discussing my health goals and he mentioned my shoulder. I suddenly realized that I had totally forgotten about the pain! I had not taken pain meds in weeks. I sleep well through the night and don’t wake in agony. My range of motion is not 100% yet, but has DRAMATICALLY improved from when I walked into Transforming Chiropractic a few short months ago.

Dr. Chris is very thorough, and I appreciate his holistic approach to my health. I have recommended him to my loved ones. Take him up on his offer of a free phone consult, or attend his free health talk. You’ll be glad you did!

Ping YehI first came to see Dr. Frykman in Shakopee because I had several aches and pains related to the “computer” posture I hold at work as well as the stress I put on my body through working out and playing sports. Having been a collegiate student athlete at UC San Diego in tennis, I want to maintain and improve my physical and mental performance well past my college years.

Every trip to see Dr. Frykman yields new insights into my health. Not only have I become pain free from old nagging injuries, I’ve been able to achieve a level of wellness that improves my state of mind and well-being. After each session, I feel more centered and aligned. This helps me feel more relaxed and stress-free which leads to a positive mood.

From a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) perspective, I feel as though my Chi (energy) is flowing better. I would recommend my family and friends to experience Vibrant Potential a few times to feel if they too can go beyond just pain-free and attain complete wellness

Dr. Chris is so friendly and is great at explaining what’s going on inside the body. Through my treatments and his GREAT workshops he does, I’ve learned so much about my body. I have a new appreciation for how it all works together. It’s not just about the one pain or injury you may have… it’s how your whole body works together and how to get it to optimal condition. Also, with Dr. Chris, health doesn’t just mean physical health. Dr. Chris addresses mental and emotional health as well and explains how they are all interconnected.

I recommend Dr. Chris to all my family and friends because it’s ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! It’s not just about chiropractic. It’s about a lifestyle!

Before I saw Dr. Chris I had terrible hip pain. I had difficulty sleeping and trying to get out of bed was even worse. Nothing helped. I had seen other chiropractors and the pain just kept getting worse. A friend from my gym recommended I see Dr. Chris and I took her up on it. After two visits my pain was 60% gone and after three is was 95% better. Dr. Chris helped me so much. Thanks!

Chris,

WOW, I just got done with my late night workout and I am amazed! You were right, the soreness in my right arm was not present during my workout and I felt stronger than I have in months. I was tired from the long day and still did more weight for more reps than I have done all winter! For the first time that I can ever remember my right arm actually felt stronger than my left when I was lifting.

Thanks again and I look forward to future treatments!

I love Dr. Chris’ authenticity. He is genuine and really cares and that shows in his treatments. I also value the holistic nature of his approach to health. For me, when he fixed imbalances in my pelvis it helped my low back pain but I’ve also noticed the clicking in my ankle has subsided. I finally feel like I sit straight at work. I’m more aware of my body, in general. I recommend him to my family and friends.

Thanks Dr. Chris.

I had been plagued by back pain from a car accident and that is what brought me to Dr. Chris Frykman. After being treated by him, I have had great results, no more pain and a huge improvement in range of motion. I had seen several chiropractors prior to him and did not get the same results. I believe the difference is the Applied Kinesiology that he uses to determine what adjustments to make.

What keeps me coming back to him is that I have learned more about nutrition and overall well being, and I feel the positive effects of his care in many areas of my life. I learn so much from the monthly emails he sends. My whole family benefits from his chiropractic care.

I’ve been suffering with Fibromyalgia for years. I’ve been stuck in a rut and no one could
help me out of it. I had absolutely no quality of life. I couldn’t do much of anything.
Soon after seeing Dr. Chris I had more energy, my pain decreased, I was able to move my hip again and maybe most importantly I was feeling motivated to change. What impressed me most with Dr. Chris how he always takes time, truly listens, and I feel understood.

Now I’m starting to feel human again. It’s been a great few weeks and I’ve learned a lot about how the body works together. I definitely recommend you try Dr. Chris.

My experience with Dr. Chris was in my opinion, “heaven sent.” I was suffering from severe vertigo and I felt as if my life was turned upside down and becoming extremely scared by the entire experience.

Regular physicians were not helping so I searched the Internet and fell upon Dr Chris’ website. Without hesitation I scheduled my appointments and I cannot thank Dr. Chris enough for curing me from my debilitation.

I have not suffered from vertigo since seeing him and I cannot wait to start visits again on a regular basis at his new location.

Many heart felt Thank You’s,

After unsuccessful visits to my primary care physician over the past few years for extreme fatigue, shakiness and general malaise, I decided to elicit the help of an alternative medicine professional. While researching local providers on the internet, I discovered Dr. Chris at Transforming Chiropractic. Dr. Chris used the Stress Response Evaluation to accurately point to areas in my body that were deficient or not working properly, and developed a program to help me get my life back. The evaluation pointed to adrenal exhaustion and metabolic syndrome, which was literally causing me to sleepwalk through life! The program consists of a change in diet with the addition a few supplements, and a regiment of treatments. I am now climbing out of the dark and exhausting abyss of ill health, and into the world upright, energized and alive!

I’ve gotten my life back. Thanks Dr. Chris. I’m living a more healthful and active lifestyle and feeling great. I recommend Dr. Chris and the stress response evaluation he employs to all of my friends, family, and you.

Dr. Chris has been my chiropractor for a few years. Initially, I went to see him only when I was experiencing physical pain. When Dr. Chris introduced me to kinesiology, it was so effective that I became inspired to take a new responsibility for my health. I am seeing Chris on a weekly basis now, and am learning a lot about myself and am truly feeling better than I could have imagined. I have been encouraging all of my friends to give it a shot and I would encourage anyone else to do the same– see what you can gain. Thanks Chris!

Chris KostDr. Frykman, provides a great service to the community. His knowledge is exceptional and his ability to find the root of what is causing a medical condition is amazing. He found a shoulder issue I actually had forgotten about. I wouldn’t have remembered until softball season started.

The number one trait of Dr. Frykman, is his willingness to help improve the lives of each person who walks through his door. Many chiropractors are about quantity and not quality. Dr. Frykman is a quality Chiropractor that I have and will continue to recommend to others.

In 1984 I received a shoulder injury due to a water skiing accident where I dislocated my right shoulder. For 23 years I’ve been living with daily pain and discomfort. I’d seen Orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and other chiropractors.

I tried various exercises, cold therapy, heat therapy, and ultrasound. None of that provided more than temporary relief. It wasn’t until I met Dr. Chris Frykman and he administered Applied Kinesiology and Clinical Kinesiology that my problem of 23 years went away. In my case it went away after the first visit. I continue to see Dr. Chris on a wellness basis.

I came to Dr. Frykman because I hurt my knee training for a race. I had a shooting pain every time I stood and I could hardly walk up stairs. I tried everything I could think of to relieve the pain but I was having no luck.The day of the race it was worse than ever and I was ready to throw in the towel. In desperation I decided to talk to Dr. Frykman and he agreed to see me to try to fix the problem.

He was very professional and explained everything to me in a way that I could understand. After the session I couldn’t believe it when 95% of the pain was gone! I was so ecstatic! I was able to run the race with little problem. I have to admit that at first I was skeptical but Dr. Frykman made me a believer. He has a customer for life. I would definitely recommend him to others.

1. Running and core strength training without back pain (Primary Goal)
2. Learned the primary source of tension in my body is hips, glutes, quads
3. Improved complexion
4. Learned about diet and health
5. Learned how to cook and incorporate healthier diet into my lifestyle
6. Learned that removing refined sugar from my diet boosts my energy and reduces anxiety *big one for me. Thanks Dr. Chris!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Chris for the last couple years. Last summer (2006) I developed a pain in my back. I had made a couple trips to the ER, had imaging done, seen some specialists, and no one was able to tell me what was wrong. I was receiving chiropractic care for a couple weeks for it but the pain was not subsiding. Dr. Chris quickly determined that I was not responding to conventional therapy and referred me for an MRI.

Upon consultation with a radiologist, it was determined that I had stage IV lymphoma that had metastasized to my sacrum, which was what finally was causing my discomfort.

The last year has been quite a battle for myself and my family. I’ve had support from so many places and for that I am grateful. I credit Dr. Chris Frykman with finding my cancer and saving my life. Thanks.

Linda WaltersI have been in martial arts since 1983, and although I have remained uninjured for the most part, I have had problems periodically from misalignments. Even a minor misalignment greatly effects my ability to perform physically in my teaching and participation in my training.
Chiropractic treatment has been absolutely irreplaceable in my health regime, and a necessary component in my health maintenance…a component not replicated or replaced by any other therapy. I have used Chiropractic treatment to maintain optimal performance and to be pain free.

Dr. Chris Frykman has been a student and instructor with us at River City Martial Arts Academy for a few years now. His approach to fitness is total, using nutrition and other health approaches as well as Chiropractic treatment to maintain optimal health. He uses this same philosophy in his practice. In my opinion, his total approach is not only the most effective, but absolutely necessary to achieve and maintain total well being. I encourage all who want to be at the top of their game, to optimize and maintain their health with Dr. Frykman.
