Dr. Brad Hendricks of The Joint Chiropractic Cottonwood wants people who have pain symptoms to know that there is a convenient, affordable alternative to traditional pain relief methods.
“We are a model that is convenient because unlike a doctor’s office, we are a walk-in clinic. Patients who come to us don’t need an appointment. That makes it easy for people to get better on their schedule,” said Dr. Hendricks.
Dr. Hendricks, who has practiced chiropractic for 30 years, considered retirement a few years ago. “I had worked as a licensed chiropractor and was certified in nutrition and forms of rehab. But I realized that I missed the patient interaction, so I came out of semi-retirement and started The Joint Cottonwood,” Dr. Hendricks said.
The location for Cottonwood Heights clients couldn’t be better. At 6910 S. Highland Drive, The Joint is near Whole Foods grocery store, Elements Massage and Blue Lemon restaurant.
Another thing Dr. Hendricks is proud to offer clients is extended hours. “We are open six days a week. Monday through Friday we are open 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., and on Saturday we’re open 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. We want to make it convenient for people to come in after work or on Saturday,” said Dr. Hendricks.
New patients are always welcome. “When someone comes in for the first time, we always take time to examine them and do a full consult based on their symptoms. They also get their first adjustment that day,” said Dr. Hendricks.
“Currently, we’re offering a special to new patients for $29. Like everything else, it is a walk-in service with no appointment required. Come in when it’s convenient for you,” said Dr. Hendricks.
Some of the common symptoms that bring people to Dr. Hendricks’s office are back pain, hip pain, neck pain and headaches. He is serious about getting to the bottom of what’s causing the pain.
“The spine is so important in terms of overall body function. A lot of pain can be relieved by manipulating the spine. With headaches there is often a neck tension component, even in migraines. Our adjustments can release the tension and send the message to the brain to relieve the pain,” Dr. Hendricks said.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Hendricks helps patients come up with a care plan. If additional diagnostics such as ultrasound or radiology are suggested, Dr. Hendricks will give his patients a referral to a trusted outside source.
“Sometimes the pain is minor and there is a quick fix. I enjoy focusing on patient care and spending the time to figure out what’s wrong. We want to find the proper adjustment to help people get better. And once they feel better, we want to help them stay that way,” said Dr. Hendricks.
The Joint Cottonwood doesn’t go through insurance companies, and they accept FSA and HSA payments. “We have a wellness plan where patients can get four adjustments per month for $69. That really makes it affordable when you break it down by visit. We really aim to be a model that is convenient and affordable,” said Dr. Hendricks.
Dr. Hendricks hopes that anyone experiencing pain will stop by and get help.
“Our mission is to help people get better. We have a simple, straightforward approach for licensed, quality care at an affordable price,” said Dr. Hendricks.
