Shanna told us that they do both chiropractic and acupuncture and that they do something called AcuStaple for headache and migraine relief. They like to treat their patients efficiently to reduce the number of times they have to come in.

Building Success By Getting Their Name Out

Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture has managed to build a strong reputation over the years, and we learned that they have marketed and grown their business by trying out different marketing tactics to find out what works for them. So far, word of mouth has been their best source for new business, but they have also tried using billboards and sponsoring local sports teams.

Dr. Waind bought the practice in 2002, and has not only received a Top Rated Local Award but also received the 2018 Readers Choice Award for best Chiropractic Practice in Grand Forks.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Waind Chiropractic & Acupuncture has managed to. We asked if Shanna could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“I would say to try to get in front of your clients as much as possible. Having a Facebook page and a website is important”
