She also has over 200 hours of continuing education in Nutrition. In April of 2017, she sucessfully completed an additional 120 hours in course work in sport injury care, becoming a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practioner ®.
Dr. Henderson employs the technique most appropriate for the patient’s needs. She is trained in Diversified, Gonstead, Activator Techniques as well as ART and PRT (Active and Passive Release Techniques). She also educates her patient in self-care, exercises and nutrition to further the healing process, allowing the patient to take control of their health and reducing the tendency for future injury.
Dr. Henderson grew up on a dairy farm in Ridgeway, WI and her interest in Chiropractic started with her care as a chiropractic patient since eight years of age as well as her longtime interest in health. This interest was encouraged by her hometown Chiropractor during appointment with him while in college. She also has Chiropractors in the family including her great-grandfather and uncle. Dr Henderson is very active and enjoys boating, biking, jogging and lifting weights. She likes to listen to music and play her piano as well as reading educational materials.
Dr. Henderson strives to introduce as many people as possible to a more complete form of whole body and whole person chiropractic care than what most people experience in a chiropractic office. She feels that doctors also need to be teachers. It is her goal to give patients the tools and knowledge to take control of their health and make to informed choices about their health care. “Teaching a patient why their condition exists and how to stay well without being dependent on passive care is one of the most important things we can do. In this way chiropractic can relieve pain but also change the course of patients lives starting at a physical level.”
