Just like you, Rising Sun Chiropractic and Weight Loss values the power of a balanced, healthy, reliable body. We use a combination of chiropractic, weight loss, and wellness solutions to help you develop a lifestyle to guide you on the road to wellness.

The Importance of Chiropractic Care and a Healthy Body

Whether we realize it or not, bodies experience stress every day!. Stress comes from habitual everyday routines,  prolonged physical activity,  or a severe accident. Wherever your stresses come from,  our team is here to create a custom care plan to achieve your health goals.

Healing from minor or chronic pain begins when the source of injury is determined through a thorough exam. Your body will find stability and strength with care,  allowing you to work, exercise, and live the quality life you desire. 

Chiropractic care is an excellent resource for non-invasive musculoskeletal care. We will help guide you through your injuries and get you on the path to recovery. At Rising Sun Chiropractic +Weight Loss, we are dedicated to health and overall wellness, and we have the experience and education to give you the tools to be your very best.

Everyone deserves to live pain-free! Achieve health and wellness at higher levels than you thought possible, and make yourself the priority! 

After you receive a warm welcome as a new patient from our front desk team, you’ll receive some brief paperwork to fill out. The paperwork provides us with general information about yourself and your condition. Dr. Nelson may ask you to complete more detailed questionnaires at a later visit to help him fine-tune your treatment plan.

Chiropractic care

Most people think of back adjustments when they think of chiropractic care, however, there’s much more we have to offer. Using various forms of chiropractic, we will find the cause of discomfort and put it to an end. Chiropractic services at RSC+WL are: 

  • Spinal manipulation: a quick, controlled manual thrust to a targeted joint in the spine; we use both traditional adjustment techniques and offer low force instrument treatments as well 
  • Adjustments to joints: these techniques are applied throughout the body, improving the range of motion of the  injured joint, effective with back, neck, and extremity (shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, etc.) pain
  • ART (Active Release Technique):  This service increases blood flow and oxygen and provides immediate relief in most cases by applying pressure to the injured tissues. Dr. Seth is certified in this service.
  • Graston and IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization): using specific muscle therapy instruments, we identify and treat areas with scar tissue limiting the range of motion and causing discomfort
  • The McKenzie Method: a low force, evidence-based technique using movement to help identify the injury ensuring we use the optimal treatment, this service provides relief from back and neck pain, sciatica, pinched nerves, and disc injuries  
  • FAKTR (Functional and Kinetic Treatment Rehabilitation): using various forms of therapy, this technique  guides the patient through a more complete recovery from injury
  • Laser therapy: a safe, comfortable therapy option that focuses on  affected areas of the body by stimulating  cellular activity, providing  a faster healing process, and immediate reduction of inflammation and pain  
  • Dynamic tape: tape applied to the injured area of the body that supports the muscles, tissues, and ligaments and offers support and relaxation for faster, more effective healing 
  • SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment) and FMS (Functional Movement Screens): these systems allow us to evaluate how the body moves, teaching us the body’s movement limitations, allowing us to determine a targeted exercise plan based on how the symptoms affect range of motion and movement patterns in the patient

We offer a variety of techniques that allow us to provide customized evidence-based, effective solutions to your pain. The chiropractors at Rising Sun Chiropractic + Weight Loss are certified and experienced in using several types of instrument-based and traditional chiropractic techniques. The variety of care options allow us to work within each patient’s comfort level, all leading to results.

Patient Testimonials

K. Okins-Mankato, MN Dr. Seth at Rising Sun Chiropractic is very accommodating. I love that he is so open minded to any and all option to making you feel better. He listens to you fully and makes sure he has covered all of your questions. I have had bad headaches since high school. Every chiropractor I have been to makes me feel better for a short time, but my neck would never stay in place. Dr. Seth suggested doing specific strengthening exercises. I think this was key. I hardly ever get headaches anymore. Almost any problem you have with body aches he can help you with.

C. Christy-Mankato, MN Thank you Dr. Nelson,for helping me with my foot pain. I am so happy to be running again!

W. Bruce-St. Peter, MN I went to see Dr. Nelson about my chronic lower back pain. He discussed with me the causes and solutions, not just to fix my current problem but to prevent any further injury. He taught me exercises to do at home to strengthen my back and stay in good shape. Always punctual, Dr. Nelson and his staff never kept me waiting, and they also helped me fit the expense to my budget. Cannot recommend Rising Sun more. And he saw me without a referral from a GP, which also saved me money.

M. Behrens-Mankato, MN I have been to chiropractor’s in the past and have been very disappointed, because they make adjustments and never care to help you improve. He cares more about your health and seeing you improve, than any other chiropractor I have met. I would recommend Dr. Nelson for helping heal all your back and body pains



~M. Behrens-Mankato, MN

H.Taylor-Cleveland, MN Honestly, I have been to a few other Chiropractors before but never like this one. Very friendly and caring office and easy to get in for appointments. Dr. Nelson was very positive in my situation, professional, gentle and easy to work with. I highly recommend going here if you’re in need of some relief. Thank you for helping me get better Dr. Nelson!!

H. Jean-Mankato, MN As I looked back on my Facebook memories today, I was reminded of a very scary time. I thought I was going to have to put my Furbaby Akasha down due to the tremendous amount of pain she was in. I had brought her to the vet(whom I really like and still go to). She was put on meds, but nothing was helping, and there was nothing else he could do. She couldn’t even move, had to be hand fed, carried out to take care of her business, and shook and cried in pain. THANKFULLY, a friend told me about Rising Sun Chiropractic!! They were so kind and turned her right around. After the very first adjustment she could walk normal again and the pain, I though was going to be the death of her, was gone just like that! We continued her adjustments until she was 100%, and I will be forever grateful toward them!! Thank you so much!! She is my world and she’s running around without a care in the world at this very moment.



~H. Jean-Mankato, MN

E. Dewes-St. Peter, MN I was at a loss. With back pain and sciatic pain-PT, injections, and other chiropractic care was not helping. I was actually terrified to come to another chiropractor because of a bad experience last summer. Dr. Seth calmed my fears-he explains everything he’s doing, and has helped me so much in my recovery process. While I am not totally pain free yet, I can see a day when I will wake up with no pain. Thank you, Dr. Seth and everyone at Rising Sun Chiropractic! You’ve helped me get my life back!



~E. Dewes-St. Peter, MN

L. Moriccal-St. Peter, MN Dr. Nelson goes above and beyond for his patients! He searches for answers and looks into all possibilities to find the cause of his patient’s pain and problems. He takes joy in continuing his path to becoming better and better. You’d be hard pressed to find another chiropractor like him.
