Palmer

In 2001, Dr. Bender graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic.  The Palmer Package is a variety of techniques taught at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the birthplace of chiropractic in 1895.

The main techniques include:

Diversified: First, an analysis of your spine is performed. With the malposition of one or more spinal bones identified, a specific manual thrust is administered, based on experience, practice and a thorough understanding of spinal mechanics.

Thompson: This technique is both a system of chiropractic analysis and a way to minimize the amount of energy needed to adjust the spine using a special table with drop-away sections.

Gonstead: A small heat-sensing instrument and full spine X-rays may be used to reveal vertebral subluxation patterns in the spine. To adjust your lower spine and pelvis, we’ll have you lie on your side. Vertebral Subluxations in the middle back are corrected as you assume a comfortable kneeling position. When you’re seated, we can restore the integrity of your spine without twisting or rotating your neck.

Toggle Recoil: While you’re in a totally relaxed state, usually lying on your side, a high-speed, low-force thrust is delivered to the upper bones of your spine and the hands are quickly withdrawn. This allows the body to use the energy as it sees fit to “reset” the spinal joints.

No appointment needed. Drop in for care, or call us at (256) 423-8900 with questions.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had a rib out of place in the upper right shoulder area. I had suffered with the pain for about four months not knowing what the problem was and assuming that I was facing some sort of surgery. After my first visit with Dr. Bender, I knew I had come to the right place! In two days, I had my second visit and that was 5 months ago! No more problems with shoulder pain."

  • "After being in a car accident, I was experiencing pain in my back and hip that continued to get worse over time. I am skeptical when it comes to medical treatment, so, I put off getting the help I needed until the pain became so severe I could no longer ignore it. It was so bad that I wasn’t sleeping well and was unable to perform my daily routine. The pain was wearing me down physically and emotionally.
    I saw an advertisement announcing Dr. Thomas Bender’s chiropractic care in Ardmore. I made a call and learned that I didn’t need an appointment to be seen and that the office visit fee was very affordable. I found Dr. Bender to be friendly, caring, and honest. He not only cared about relieving my pain, but about my general overall health as well.
    After three visits, I no longer have the pain I suffered with for so long. I am sleeping well and able to perform my daily activities. I am thankful to have Dr. Bender here in Ardmore."
