Dr. Matthew L Weaklend
I am Dr. Matt Weaklend and I appreciate you reading this to see if we are the right chiropractic clinic for you. I was born in Omaha and raised in Fremont. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and soon after graduation went north to Minneapolis where I attended Chiropractic school at Northwestern and received my Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. Shortly after graduation I moved out to California and began work for an office that combined Medical Doctors, Chiropractors and Physical therapists together in the same office. After working in this environment I came across another wonderful opportunity and became the clinic director for California Pain Relief Specialists.
After a couple years in California I felt it was time to move back to Omaha and open an office. So back in 2004 I began work and opened this office, Lakeside Chiropractic Specialists. I am very proud of the business and product that we have created. We strive to make everyone feel welcome and will greet you with a warm smile whether it be on the phone or in the office. We do not qualify our patients by the quality of their insurance. Everyone that needs Chiropractic care will get that care in our office regardless of their financial situation. We will make it work for you and your family.
My passion within the Chiropractic profession is helping families. A typical story for us is to help a man or woman who is suffering from neck or back pain and then begin helping their wife or husband and before we know it, we are treating their kids as well as their friends and neighbors for a wide variety of symptoms as well as just wellness. Chiropractic and Acupuncture have the ability to change lives in more ways than just pain relief. What ways are you willing to let Chiropractic help?
Within the Chiropractic profession there are a tremendous number of techniques that chiropractors use to treat their patients. I use a wide variety of these techniques, but mainly I use a very gentle technique called prone specific. Without getting too technical we try to use as light of force as needed to get the vertebra to move and to get the pressure off of the nerves, often times with little or no popping. In fact, it is so gentle that we treat a whole lot of newborn babies!
As a business we take great pride in the fact that over 90 percent of our patient's come from direct referrals from satisfied patients. It has always been my dream to create a practice that delivers care in a way in which people not only get better but will willingly refer their friends and family who are in need. Our Mission is to have a positive impact on our community's quality of life through the use of Chiropractic and Acupuncture; focusing on one family, one individual, one adjustment at a time.

Anita has been with us since 2012 and brings a tremendous amout of love, caring and health knowledge to the office. Anita's background starts with her love of animals, especially dogs. She has worked in a number of different dog grooming facilities and stores but it was when she found and worked for a holistic animal doctor that offered chiropractic and acupuncture for pets that she began to see the value chiropractic can have on health. She had witnessed chiropractic miracles on pets long before she experienced them with people. Anita worked another chiropractic office in Omaha and when the doctor she worked for decided to move she knew she had to stay in the chiropractic field. In her time with us Anita has attended and even spoke at multiple Chiropractic seminars around the country and has become a role model or mentor to many other Chiropractic assistants. Anita is also has a limited radioligy license which allows her to take our x-rays. Lucky for us that when we were looking to hire she was looking for a position. My challenge to you when you come by the office and meet Anita is to find another person as nice and sweet as her.
Jenee started with us in 2016 and has been a wonderful talent to have in the office. She is great with people can handle a lot of things thrown at her at the same time. Jenee flawlessly handles the flow of patients in our office and makes everyone feel at home and welcome. In her spare time Jenee loves to play volleyball and softball. It is my belief that it may be hard to find someone who is "sweeter" than Jenee when it comes to personality.
