Welcome to Awender Chiropractic
Redwood City Chiropractic Care

Welcome to Awender Chiropractic, your home for drug-free pain relief, medically-supervised wellness care. Serving the San Francisco Bay Area since 1961 and located in the heart of Redwood City, our chiropractor Dr. Joseph E. Awender II and our chiropractic care team are dedicated to helping you live your healthiest life! Whether you are searching for a natural treatment for back pain, headaches and migraines; need support healing after an injury, we are here to help. Dr. Awender and our wellness staff provide bilingual care; se habla espanol.

Bilingual Care also Servicing Menlo Park & Palo Alto: Se Habla Español!

At Awender Chiropractic, we offer comprehensive chiropractic care and conservative pain management techniques, including spinal adjustments, spinal decompression therapy, and massage therapy. We focus specifically on conservative, drug-free pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, sciatica, and extremity pain. Our Redwood City chiropractor is experienced in the treatment of a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries. We treat whiplash injuries, sports injuries, workplace injuries, herniated and slipped discs, and many other common musculoskeletal problems. This includes repetitive motion injuries like tennis elbow and golfer’s knee. If you are in pain, we are here to help!

Our approach to conservative pain management and injury rehabilitation is based on the simple belief that real pain relief starts by addressing the root cause for the problem. Pain medication only “covers up” pain; once the drugs wear off, pain will return. Chiropractic care is different. Our chiropractor Dr. Awender will conduct comprehensive diagnostic exams to determine the root cause for your pain or injury. For example, a spinal misalignment like a herniated disc may be compressing nearby nerves, triggering pain and causing nervous system interference. Based on the results of your diagnostic exam, Dr. Awender will create a customized treatment to bring correct alignment back to the spine.

The spine is the body’s foundation: when it is properly aligned, your body is able to function in a state of optimal health! We offer cutting-edge chiropractic adjustments, along with spinal decompression therapy and massage therapy for enhanced pain relief and injury rehabilitation.

Don't let chronic pain, an injury, or weight frustrations stop you from living an active life. Contact our Redwood City chiropractor today at (650) 366-1273.
