Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care focuses on how the nervous and musculoskeletal systems interact. Chiropractic care uses controlled and safe manual adjustments to restore proper joint function and alleviate pain and discomfort.

These adjustments primarily target minor spinal or skull misalignments that could strain the nervous system, and chiropractic care can offer a thorough approach to healing that enhances the body's nervous system's functionality, even at the cellular level.

Some benefits of Chiropractic Care include:

  • Reduced pain in the spine and extremities
  • Relief from headaches, stiffness, and muscle spasms
  • Improved mobility and range of motion
  • Increased performance and energy
  • Enhanced sense of well-being and relaxation
  • Reduced tissue inflammation

Advanced-Practice Chiropractic Care

In addition to his other qualifications, Dr. Pendleton holds a homeopathic medicine and anesthetic injection certification from the State of New Mexico. When standard chiropractic care is ruled out as an effective treatment or it is decided that a combination of treatments is required, he only uses therapeutic injections with the patient's full consent.

Prolotherapy is the second most popular method for treating trigger points in the musculoskeletal system after injection therapy. This method is especially useful for treating tendons or ligaments too loose to support a joint, causing pain and discomfort properly. Traditional chiropractic manipulations can cause more harm than good when a joint is too lax (loose). On the other hand, prolotherapy strengthens the weakened ligaments without causing further pain or wear.

What to Expect

What our patients have to say

I was a non-believer of chiropractic care, but with just one visit [to SWBPC], I am a true convert. I physically and mentally perform better after an adjustment. It has relieved pain from stress and from minor sports injuries. I appreciated the sharing of alternative health remedies that address the heart of an on-going health issue, instead of going to a medical doctor to receive a drug prescription that addresses only the symptoms.

Phyllis

I have been treated by this staff for over 20 years which should say something in itself. They are very professional and knowledgeable and have been able to correct my problem. I recommend them very highly.
