Align Chiropractic opens in Rugby
Dr. Erica Jorde has joined the Rugby business community, offering chiropractic services. The office opened last Wednesday, June 7, located in Suite 108 of Hartley’s Mall.
Originally from Towner, Jorde graduated from Valley City State University in 2007. After continuing her education at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis and graduating in 2010, Jorde moved back to Towner to be closer to her family and to help her father farm.
She began working at a medical clinic until it closed. She then opened Align Chiropractic in 2013.
“I got into [chiropractic services] because I had a jaw issue in middle school. My uncle is a chiropractor, and after a few treatments, it was completely fixed. I never had any issues with it again,” Jorde said about her interest in the field.
Jorde specializes in most chiropractic services, including manual adjustments, drop piece technique, activator technique, and SOT (Sacral Occipital Technique) with cranial adjusting.
According to Jorde, both drop piece and activator techniques are gentler than manual adjustments.
“Activator technique is the most gentle,” Jorde said. “I really like to concentrate on gentle. I want people to feel better when they leave, but some pain is necessary for the healing process.”
Although Jorde’s main practice is located in Towner, she will be at her Rugby location twice per week and as needed.
“The Rugby community [is the reason I opened an office here], it’s very welcoming,” Jorde said, adding that it’s close enough to her Towner location for her to travel back and forth easily, instead of having her patients travel.
“There are a lot of good chiropractors in Rugby, but I really like to focus on the gentler approaches and the cranial adjusting. Cranial adjusting is just so good, as it helps with sinuses and overall mood. I think those two things are what separates me [from other chiropractors],” Jorde said.
Align Chiropractic’s Rugby hours are Wednesdays 1-5 p.m. and Thursdays 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The Towner location’s hours are Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Wednesdays 9 a.m. – noon.
Jorde can be reached for both offices by calling (701) 537-2080.
