  • Dr.
    Frederick Claussen

    Dr. Frederick Claussen has been a licensed
    Chiropractor in Minnesota since 1983.

    Dr. Claussen has been helping to free people of pain since 1983 at his clinic in Watertown, Mn and since 1998 in his Wayzata, Mn clinic. In October of 2007, Dr. Claussen moved his clinic to larger spaces in the current location in Golden Valley, Mn. As a Chiropractor with extensive experience, he is committed to promoting the health and well being of his patients.

    Dr. Claussen uses a 'whole person approach' when taking care of his patients. By combining the very best in gentle hands-on-techniques, state of the art COLD LASER THERAPY and other physiotherapy procedures, Dr. Claussen is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.

    Dr. Claussen and his wife Susan have been married for 33+ years and have three children: Kelly, Christine, and Andy. Kelly and Christine have both been Minnesota State Meet Qualifiers in gymnastics and Christine has been to State twice for track. Both girls are past college athletes, as well. Andy was on the High School swim and golf teams. Having such an athletic family has sometimes been a challenge for a 'Chiropractor Dad', but also great experience in keeping young athletes 'in action'.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
