Are you looking for a great place to raise kids, but still has plenty to do for the adults?

Look no further. The Strawberry Fields Subdivision of West Fargo has great schooling and plenty for the whole family to do.

Tyler Lindell, Realtor® at Hatch Realty and winner of first time homebuyer awards, shows the possibilities of living in West Fargo with this great home on 4th Street East.

At 5 beds and with 5 baths, on a huge lot, this home has everything you need, but the surrounding neighborhood is the real star of the show.

With Independence Elementary School, Liberty Middle School and Sheyenne High School all in the district, your children will receive a great education no matter what age group they're in!

Stop after school to get in your work out at Venture Fitness/Venture Chiropractic just down the way for your family fitness needs.

Shadow Wood Park Splash Pad is right near by for the kids to play all summer long, and there is a pond in the back to shovel off and skate on all winter long. You can warm up after hockey practice with the indoors fireplace featured in the home, then head out again for dinner.

There’s plenty to eat and drink.

Brewtus' Brickhouse has awesome food and drinks for the adults. With plenty of taps to choose from and in-house homemade pizza, Brewtus makes for a great night out.

Otherwise, Plaza Azteca Fargo makes for a great stop for the whole family to try something ethnic and new.

Spend your weekend at The Lights, with a public skating rink in the winter and live concerts and entertainment all summer with the best drinks and appetizers available at Bar Down. The Lights really tops this area off as a new hub of West Fargo right in the same Strawberry Fields Subdivision.

With how much the neighborhood is growing, there will only be more amenities available over time.

If you’d like to schedule a showing for a house in the Strawberry Fields Subdivision of Fargo, or if you’d like to find out what your home is worth, give Hatch Realty a call today at 701-369-4839.

Chiropractic Care in the Winter - Venture Chiropractic 03/02/2022

Chiropractic Care in the Winter - Venture Chiropractic

In North Dakota we experience the freezing temps and snow all too often. Between slipping on ice to shoveling 12” of snow, our bodies are prone to becoming injured throughout winter. We also might feel achier in our joints or feel we become stiffer and tighter over the long winter seasons. There are reasons for this!
Read our blog on why chiropractic care can serve you many benefits this winter season!

Happy Valentine's Day from us at Venture to you!


This month we are focusing on boosting the immune system. Since the start of the year, most people have already experienced some sort of illness and there is never a convenient time to get sick. Continue reading our blog below on how you can boost your immune system!


Thank you Katie for leaving a wonderful review. One thing that we do here at Venture is educate our patients as to why their body is in pain, and more importantly how they can get out of it.


Dr. Melanie is often asked if she is able to treat kids, if our care is safe for them, and how they could benefit from chiropractic care.

Her answer is always that "children have spines and a nervous system just like adults. It is important it is taken care of especially during the developmental years. Certified pediatric chiropractic can make sure they are on the right track".

The nervous system controls everything we do. It is set-up like a fuse box. If the lights in your home go out, you go to the source, the home’s fuse box, to check for the root cause. Our nervous system is our body’s fuse box. Children can have a “blown fuse” and present with constipation, ear infections, bed wetting, colic, torticollis, sleeping difficulties, reflux, and behavior issues.

Pediatric chiropractors can help with these many childhood issues by not focusing on the presenting problem, but by going to the source and turning the “lights” back on by removing nervous system irritation.


Pelvic Bridges


The pelvic bridge is the perfect exercise to stabilizing your core again after baby. Here's how to do them:

- Begin by lying flat on your back with both of your feet on the ground.
- Roll your hips back, flattening your low back on to the ground.
- Maintain this lumbar position as you use your glute muscles to lift the hips off of the ground.
- Repeat!


We are in the thick of winter and our immune systems could use a boost. That's why Immune Resilience, Immune Support, Dynamic Immunity & Vitamin D are 20% off the entire month of February!

Want to skip the hassle of coming in? Order online at! Just create an account (if you don't have one) --> use practitioner code 610303 during account set up --> get 10% off everything for now and all future purchases, along with free shipping after $49!


It's the last day to get 20% off Dynamic Health Drink, B-Complex, & Mito Recharge!

Stop in today and get yours!


Grateful and blessed to be surrounded by this team. Always striving to provide the best quality patient care all while supporting and elevating each other to be better each day! Axes were thrown, fun was had, and no causalities occurred. Check out Rough Cut Social - Fargo, ND for a great time!

Did you know that Dr. Melanie is Webster certified?

The Webster technique aids in reducing in-utero restrictions. The better-positioned baby is for birth, the better mom will feel, and the easier the birth may be.

Our goals are to:
+ Align the uterus so the baby can enter the pelvis in the optimal position.
+ Release tight ligaments or muscles which may pull or twist, causing pelvic pain during pregnancy or discomfort during birth.
+ Open the pelvis with adjustments and exercises to let the baby move down during the birth process.
+ Provide information so parents can know their options, make informed choices, be active participants in their baby’s birth, and understand the entire process.

Schedule with Dr. Melanie today at!


Everyone understands that sleep is an essential part of life. Sleep is especially important for our kids, as they are growing and developing. Research suggests inadequate sleep results in tiredness, difficulties with focused attention, irritability and easy frustration, and difficulty modulating impulses and emotions.

As a chiropractor who treats children, this is a commonly discussed topic Dr. Melanie addresses with parents with children of all ages. Ensuring your child develops a healthy sleep routine is very important and chiropractic care may help.

For young children, lack of sleep or trouble sleeping can have some serious consequences both in the short-term and long-term, including the following:
+ Behavioral Issues
+ Hyperactivity
+ Stunted brain development
+ Growth and developmental issues

Continue reading our blog for more information on how your kids can get better sleep:


Did you know that when working with newborn babies, only finger-tip pressure, specific contact points, and gentle adjusting techniques are used? We like to say it's similar to the soft pressure one might use to check the ripeness of an avocado.

Infant chiropractic care is safe, gentle, and specific. It can help little ones in relieving:
+ colic
+ acid reflux
+ allergies
+ ear infections
+ challenges associated with sleeping
+ bed-wetting
+ feeding and latching issues

Have you had your little one adjusted? Dr. Melanie specializes in pediatric care, is certified in the Webster technique, and is a BirthFit professional!
