Total Health and Wellness
Many people believe they know what a visit to their local chiropractor would look like. Many treatments indeed include chiropractic adjustments which are targeted manipulations of some part of the spine to reduce or eliminate pain and promote natural healing.
There’s so much more to pursuing total health and wellness than Googling “chiropractor near me” and hoping for the best. Dr. Bender and his staff at the Bender Chiropractic offers attentive, state-of-the-art services for Ardmore, TN, and the surrounding communities. We believe that cutting-edge techniques and modern technology are wonderful tools, but only if they serve your specific needs and help make your life better.
Chiropractic Care (Emphasis On “Care”)
For patients that are unfamiliar with modern chiropractic care, some of the terminology can seem a bit daunting. That’s why it’s important to choose a chiropractor that is just as interested in working with you as working on you.
If you’ve been in an accident or suffered illness or deterioration limiting your movement or causing regular discomfort, we may recommend personalized physiotherapy as part of the treatment. Traditional “physical therapy” too often reduces the healing process to a series of stretches and exercises. These are important elements, but so are nutritional counseling, whole-body movement, and collaborating on possible lifestyle adjustments. Why stop at addressing existing conditions if we can reduce the chances of similar problems in the future?
Modern Chiropractic Treatments for Pain and Discomfort
One treatment with which many new patients are unfamiliar is the use of therapeutic ultrasound to reduce muscle pain and improve mobility and movement for injured or weakened parts of the body. The use of high-frequency sound waves helps break down scar tissue while drawing blood and nutrients to the injured area to promote healing.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS), on the other hand, uses a mild electrical current. EMS, or “muscle stim” for short, helps injured or spasming muscles to relax and releases your body’s natural endorphins to reduce pain and inflammation.
Of course, Dr. Bender is experienced with a variety of effective approaches to chiropractic adjustment based on your specific situation. At some point, you may even lie face down on a table while he precisely targets sections of your neck and back to re-engage your body’s communication with itself.
