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.

Dr. Joseph Awender opened the doors to Awender Chiropractic to the community of Redwood City, CA. Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Awender Chiropractic emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; one that will help them achieve and maintain optimal health. Patients come in to see Dr. Awender for many reasons, such as back pain, headaches/migraines, whiplash, sports injuries, herniated/slipped disc, tennis elbow, and golfer's knee. Awender Chiropractic offers a variety of treatments to suit the unique needs of each patient. Such treatments include spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, and massage therapy. Dr. Awender has also been voted “America’s Top Chiropractor” by Consumers’ Research Council of America.

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

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.
