“How else can we help our community?” was the question the team at Seland Chiropractic Center pondered last year. After decades of treating patients, much research and travel to tour other health care offices, Dr. Trond Seland expanded the services offered at Seland Chiropractic. These services are offered within their new Nauticus Laser and Wellness Center. Nauticus Laser had its soft opening the end of 2020.
“Nauticus means Adventurer,” Dr Seland says. Dr. Seland sees himself as a Health Navigator, helping people get back into the Adventure of Life!
“My patients’ health concerns have become more complex in the last several years with the demands and toxicities within our world,” Dr. Seland says.
Too many people within our community suffer with poor health that robs their ability to enjoy their every day. Dr. Seland’s team is now focused on “Adjusting with the Power of Light and the Inspiration of Hope!”
Seland and his team have used lasers for many years to treat joint pain, issues related to herniated discs, sciatica, whiplash and other conditions with great success.
“Our patients love the laser therapy,” Dr. Seland says. Summus Medical Laser, the company that made the lasers, upgraded their technology with a design aimed specifically to treat peripheral neuropathy.
Peripheral Neuropathy, which is typically caused by type 2 diabetes, chemotherapy or trauma, is when patients can no longer feel their fingers, toes or feet normally. They experience a burning, tingling sensation that feels like they are walking on glass. Many neuropathy patients feel like they have a sock rolled under their foot. Dr. Seland still vividly recalls a chiropractic patient he had three decades ago who suffered with this condition. Though Dr. Seland helped rid the man of his back pain, the patient’s medical neuropathy treatment was failing. Over the course of several months, Seland watched as this man first lost his toes, then his foot, then his lower leg, then his entire leg. He ultimately died of complications from type 2 diabetes.
“I’ll never forget what I witnessed that patient go through,” Dr. Seland says. “There was no hope.”
Now THERE IS HOPE, as this Nauticus Neuropathy laser program heals people three to five times faster than traditional methods. Using the healing power of high-power laser light, Seland treats people with peripheral neuropathy. The program includes the Summus Medical Laser, additional therapies and supplementation.
“Treating Neuropathy is the primary thing we do at Nauticus Wellness Center,” Dr. Seland says. “These advanced treatments tie in perfectly with our chiropractic care because chiropractic is all about restoring the flow of energy between the brain and the rest of the body to keep the body healthy.
“They leave feeling lighter and brighter,” he adds.
Another service offered at Nauticus Wellness Center is assistance with weight loss, which is a major benefit to overall health by reducing joint pain, stiffness and chronic weight related issues. A lighter body is typically a healthier body.
ChiroThin is a six-week, doctor-supervised weight loss program that can garner amazing results, with patients losing an average of 20, 30 and up to 50 pounds. Patients can boost their results by pairing the program with Nauticus’ Red Light Therapy. The Red Light Therapy assists with fat loss, body contouring and skin tightening.
Dr. Seland also prescribes Red Light Therapy for a variety of conditions including pain relief, mood enhancement for the winter blues (seasonal effective disorder), mild neuropathy and chronic pain.
“Hoosiers often don’t get enough healthy sunlight and florescent light drains one’s energy, but patients who use Red Light Therapy report having more energy than ever,” Dr. Seland says.
Voted top Indianapolis Chiropractic Office for the past five years, the team at Seland Chiropractic Living Well Center can help patients with everything from back, neck, shoulder and knee pain to migraines, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and sports injuries. All services on the Nauticus side are typically not covered by traditional insurance, so to help with the costs, they offer health care financing called Care Credit, which patients can utilize for neuropathy, weight loss or any laser and light treatments.
