Services & Techniques

At Westside Chiropractic, Dr. Nicholas Krysl and his team in Rapid City, SD, are entirely devoted to taking a whole-body approach to your pain relief and wellness. We offer a wide variety of treatment options so we can meet the needs of every patient. A full-body approach involves taking a look at lifestyle habits and nutrition. We also look at movements you might make on the job and consider any sports you play and any exercising you enjoy.

Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractic care methods include a variety of techniques. Some of the methods we use are Activator methods, Diversified technique, Thompson drop table, Zone technique, Impulse IQ, Chiropractic BioPhysics, Charrette’s Extremity Adjusting, and more. These methods work to realign the body, which alleviates tension, pressure, and pain.


Rehabilitation treatment involves ongoing care, healing, and strengthening techniques. Sometimes, a person’s body must relearn correct movements after being stuck or moving at the wrong angles for years. Our team is proactive in assisting you in relearning proper movements and strengthening inactive areas to help you avoid pain going forward.

Upper Cervical Care

The upper portions of our spine do many things. As we age, discs compress closer together. The compression pulls on the muscles in the surrounding area, which can cause:

  • vertigo
  • tinnitus
  • neck pain
  • shoulder pain
  • headaches
  • migraines

If you’re experiencing one of these conditions, treatment may include spinal adjustments and exercises you can do at home in between visits.


Our bodies respond in many ways to the foods we ingest. Taking the whole-body approach to health and wellness, our team will examine your eating habits and make specific recommendations for you in the future. We take your dietary preferences and restrictions into consideration when crafting a plan to help your nutritional health. Many foods can help improve your health, from dark leafy vegetables to proteins containing omega-3 fatty acids.

Headaches, migraines, and inflammation can all be tied to food ingredients. Removing them from your diet, once identified, can help. We can also advise you on different vitamins and supplements to consider and which ones will work best for you.
