Dr. Bender is a chiropractor that values movement above all else. With a primary focus on biomechanics, he takes a deliberate approach to increasing mobility in every joint of the body through chiropractic adjustments, flexion-distraction therapy, therapeutic exercises and various types of soft tissue therapy. Patients will achieve increased mobility quickly, allowing their treatment plan to also focus on holding those corrections in place by training core stability, improving ergonomics, and perfecting standing and sitting posture.
Dr. Bender holds the distinction of being a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician. His training in sports medicine helps him to teach athletes to use their body in a way that lowers the risk of injury and increases their performance. For athletes that find Dr. Bender after injury has occurred, his skills in eliminating joint restriction, releasing tension from muscles and removing scar tissue are imperative in reducing time to heal and eliminating any lingering problems from that particular injury.
Visits in his office are generally more comprehensive than with most other physicians, and he always gives patients the time they need to get a complete adjustment, soft tissue therapy, and training on how to correct posture and poor movement habits.
