The energy of the North Dakota economy has enticed many businesses to make the move into the state --- and some of those businesses are ON the move.
Jennifer Kleen tells us about an office space on wheels in this week's Eye on Energy.
Western North Dakota is on the move.
That's why Black Gold Mobile Chiropractic was designed to keep the hours and locations of the workforce.
(Dr. Tanner Parizek, Black Gold Mobile Chiropractic) "I don't take the easy road all the time."
Dr. Tanner Parizek left Minot for his education.
When he came back, he found a custom office was what the area was missing.
(Dr. Tanner Parizek, Black Gold Mobile Chiropractic) "This wasn't my plan originally but after I moved back here I realized that this would give me the opportunity to help people who need it the most, really. Jobs in North Dakota, Western North Dakota in particular, people don't work 9-5."
Mobile business licenses vary from city to city, but Dr. Parizek says things are snapping into place, he currently spends parts of the work week in Minot, New Town, Stanley and Tioga and hopes to add Williston soon.
(Dr. Tanner Parizek, Black Gold Mobile Chiropractic) "People that come in, a lot of them aren't getting seen often enough. A lot of them, not only can they hardly work, they can hardly walk. A lot of people come here to work and if they can't work that can make life very difficult for them."
Dr. Parizek often uses truck stops as a back drop.
(Dr. Tanner Parizek, Black Gold Mobile Chiropractic) "Trucking is one of the hardest things on your lower back, actually. That's one of the common problems. Another thing for truckers, they can't drive a semi through the middle of town and park at an office space somewhere. If they don't know any doctors here, they don't know who to talk with to help them find someone. If they can find someone along the way that helps them."

Dr. Parizek is working to complete the certified medical examiner requirements which will allow him to do DOT physicals in the field.
