Hendrickson Chiropractic & Wellness Center

Hendrickson Chiropractic & Wellness Center, located at 2020 Jackson Street, Oshkosh, was founded in 1980 by its director, Gerald F. Hendrickson, D.C. For over 20 years, the clinic focused on quality chiropractic care in its efforts to serve humanity. However, Dr. Hendrickson found himself increasingly distressed by what he saw in the overall health of the public. In short, our health as a whole was deteriorating, rapidly. AIDS/HIV, ADD, ADHD, Autism … these were issues that were either extremely rare back in 1980 or virtually failed to exist entirely. And these are health issues just from the letter “A” of the alphabet! (Add in childhood obesity, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, juvenile cancers – extremely rare in 1980 – along with a host of other illnesses, and the health situation of our country becomes alarming. Indeed, we as a nation have slipped to last place among the 27 developed nations on earth, according to the World Health Organization.)

Something had to be done. In 2003, following the severe illness of a close family member, Dr. Hendrickson began his quest for the answers to the dire health crisis in America. His path took him on countless dead-ends, but finally, he struck pay dirt. He discovered a core of doctors comprising 1% of his profession, who understood the concept of health restoration and maintenance, and who had the knowledge, skills and clinical expertise to address the disastrous health of our nation. In 2007, Dr. Hendrickson joined this elite group of doctors, and transformed his clinic and the patients it serves as a result.

The clinic began to address, teach and coach its patients about the essentials of good health. Getting and keeping its patients in optimum health became the highest priority. This involved the implementation of something referred to as “The Five Essentials of Health,” and it has dramatically changed the lives of those who have learned and abided by it. They are as follows:

Essential 1

Maximized mind: This essential encompasses areas such as time and stress management, improving your relationships with others and making sure you receive the proper amount of sleep. Working on this essential improves one’s attitude, overall peace and well-being.

Essential 2

Maximized nerve supply: Since the nervous system controls every single function in the human body, it is essential that any interference or damage to this system be eliminated. Of critical importance is the concept of correcting the CAUSE of this interference, not merely reducing the effects of it. Our doctors here are certified in techniques designed to correct spinal problems and return it back to normal. X-rays taken when the corrective care plan is completed confirm the effectiveness of these advanced, state-of-the-art techniques.

Essential 3

Maximized quality nutrition: This essential teaches which foods are “healing foods” and which foods actually are making us sicker. This is an enormous problem for people, as we are constantly bombarded with unhealthy foods everywhere we go. Furthermore, even if we have some knowledge of what quality foods really are, they are often modified by manufacturers, with devastating consequences to our health.

Essential 4

Maximized oxygen and lean muscle: We coach our patients on how to reduce body fat, get in the best shape of their lives, lose weight and have more energy than they know what to do with, on just twelve minutes per day! I personally lost over 55 pounds easily and permanently using this efficient, pleasant exercise protocol. Our patients have had similar results as well. We even have free workout sessions at the office on Monday and Wednesday nights at 6:10 p.m. You do not need to be a patient to attend this life-changing class.

Essential 5

Minimize toxins: We are bombarded with thousands upon thousands of toxic chemicals every day at home and at work. Additionally, the average American consumes over 150 pounds of toxic chemicals in their food EVERY YEAR. That’s not a misprint. No wonder the health of our nation is such a disaster. We instruct our patients on ways they and their families can reduce these exposures, and in doing so dramatically improve the health of themselves and those they love.

True health means that each and every one of your 25 trillion cells are functioning and healing at their fullest potential. To achieve this, our patients focus on “The 5 Essentials of Health,” and in doing so they make sure that their bodies are functioning properly and receiving what they need so that not only do they feel great again, they are also living the healthy lives of their dreams. Each of these essentials plays a crucial role in achieving that goal of great overall health and well-being. Nothing gives us more satisfaction than watching a patient’s life transformed to amazing health by utilizing these safe, natural and effective essentials.
