Dr. Richard Bend Jr, DC
I have dedicated my entire life to helping people get better and stay better. As a Navy Corpsman I was trained in combat injuries and basic health practices primarily dealing with combat related trauma. During this time I also learned my bedside manner in the understanding that being calm while others are in distress is key to their recovery. As Third generation chiropractor I have taken this experience to address patients who often come to me 'after' all else has failed. What you will discover at Bend Chiropractic Center is an old fashioned, no nonsense approach to your care where questions are encouraged. It is our view that if you have any concerns or fears based on any irresponsible comments you may have heard we will clarify those concerns immediately. Payment plans are available to those who do not have functional insurance which we understand is a growing concern in today's health care market. In fact our plans are often less expensive than your average deductible. Yours in Health and Wellness Dr. Richard Bend.

Dr. Bend Jr's Care Philosophy

Do what works, suggest what works and help the patient avoid mistakes that are counter productive. We speak to our patients on an individual basis so that they can learn what to do better and what not to do at all. So often it is the simplest thing that sends us to the ER. Learning what not to do or what to do instead can save you thousands of dollars and countless hours in a crowded ER only to be given a drug and told to go home. As mentioned earlier we do not waste time on nonsense care. We do what works...only what works...nothing more.

Dr. Bend Jr says...

In 1925 Dr. Samuel Chandler Bend, my grandfather, discovered the key to Migraine headaches. From that he developed a protocol that has created a 98% success rate...without medication.

It is for this reason, chiropractic has been maligned, for its high rate of success minus the use of toxic, side effect laden medications.  For 89 years my family has known the secret of managing migraine headaches.  The problem is the protocol is so simple and so effective our patients often get angry because they have had to live with this misery for years...because nobody ever told them that chiropractic could help.  Either that or they chose to believe the tripe so often spewed by those who view drug free professions as 'weird'.

As you might guess by the tone I'm using...I do not hold back my opinions where ignorance is present.  I will not tolerate it and to not expect my patients to be subjected to ignorance either.

Thompson drop...effective, safe and will allow the doc to remain in practice until he dies of old age.

Activator, small impact instrument used on Osteoporosis patients, infants and persons with acute injuries where manual adjusting is contraindicated.  Very safe, effective.

Classic, Gonstead manual adjusting,

Diversified manual adjusting

SOT, non-force technique

Logan Basic.

Toggle Recoil

Each technique is modified to the patients tolerance.
