The ChiroFix Team
Dr. Alayna Cronk Chiropractor/Co-founder & RYT 200 Yoga Teacher
I am a Doctor of Chiropractic as well as a certified yoga teacher with a passion for anatomy, functional movement, and biomechanics. I began practicing yoga in Los Angeles a lifetime ago when I had the bright idea of pursuing a career in modeling and acting. Between all of the auditions, all over a huge city, I used yoga to help alleviate stress in a tough industry. The more time I spent with the mat, the better I felt and realized there must be something to this yoga thing. So, I began attending the studio more, paying attention to body and movement, and pushing myself to see what I could do in each practice.
I have been in sports for most of my life, my biggest concentration on gymnastics. Needless to say, strength and flexibility have always been important to me. I would sit in front of the clock in all three split positions, and help these stretches for 30-60 minutes at a time. As I dove more into yoga, I began to revisit the flexibility that I was starting to lose. There is only so much the body can retain in short bursts of stretches. In this, I discovered something about yoga, and the body's ability to move, to stretch and to heal. Since then, I have been hooked and plan on incorporating my knowledge as a doctor with my passion for yoga!
Dr. Justin Cronk Chiropractor/Co-founder & Not a Yoga Teacher
Dr. Justin Cronk is a chiropractor and a 2013 graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University. He, along with his wife (also a chiropractor) opened up the ChiroFix in Otsego, MN in January 2018.
Dr. Cronk is an Iraq Veteran and became interested in working in healthcare after spending much of his deployment in Iraq (2003 - 2004) working in a combat support hospital in Baghdad which was later featured in the HBO documentary “Baghdad ER”.
Dr. Cronk utilizes the analysis of movement and muscle imbalances to form a basis of treatment. He takes pride in an evidence-based approach to treatment employing a variety of treatment modalities that go way above and beyond the typical practice of chiropractic (which generally focuses on spinal alignment and the utilization of adjustments as a primary treatment method). Much of his treatment approaches have been tailored specifically for the needs of CrossFit athletes and he has been involved in dozens of CrossFit competitions.
Dr. Cronk is also a father of three wonderful kids and also has a baby on the way! In his spare time, he enjoys working out, playing guitar and recording music, and reading.
Jon Frikken, DPT Doctor of Physical Therapy
Joining July 13, 2020)
I graduated from PT school in May of 2020 after working to reinvent myself to help people become more fit and work their way through injuries to stay active. I originally graduated with a Master's degree in Construction Management from NDSU in 2009. After years of wanting more out of life than a paycheck, I found Crossfit in 2012 and worked my way up to becoming a coach. While coaching, many people would come in with various issues including a hurt shoulder, hip, knee, or other issues. Instead of helping people work around their issue, I chose to become a physical therapist to help people reclaim their abilities and enjoy their life while pursuing better health.
