Dr. Dennis Lenselink, DC – Clinic Director

Dr. Dennis LenselinkAs a Doctor of Chiropractic, I see value in anything that enhances your well-being and comfort, without jeopardizing your health. Pain is the last symptom to appear and the first to leave. Therefore, even though you have no pain it does not mean that your spine is functioning normally as nature intended or that your nervous system is free of interferences.

While Chiropractic care offers an effective, drug-free, non-surgical alternative, Chiropractors also recognize that no single health care profession can universally attend to every health need. We work as a team with other health care professionals and may make referrals in the best interest of the patient. The spine needs to be maintained and the nervous system kept free of interferences in order for you to enjoy optimal health.
