Lindsey Bennett, a Greenwood Township resident, said many people think their job as a chiropractor is to help with back and neck pain alone, but it’s not.
Chiropractors manipulate the spine to function as it should to allow the body to thrive to its optimum potential. He helped people be his best self.
“Light up their lives and help them live a better quality of life,” Bennett said.
And he’s helping people do it through his Ember Chiropractic business, a mobile chiropractic service that travels to homes in St. Louis counties. Clair and Sanilac.
Bennett, who graduated from the Florida campus of Palmer College of Chiropractic in March 2020 before working for a Port Huron chiropractor, had the idea to launch the business in early April.
He wanted to spend more time with patients and do something to make their lives easier, especially during COVID-19, when many people brought goods home.
Being a mobile chiropractor allows your patients to have the appointment in the comfort of their home. On nice days, you can even set up your table to make adjustments to the outside.
“Right now, mobile is where I want to be,” he said.
Bennett is flexible with schedules and one of the hardest parts of the business has been figuring out how to budget travel time between homes and therefore trying to make certain areas certain days.
He said working with a patient starts with the admissions procedures he looks at, so he has an idea of what the person needs. They then make a phone consultation to make sure both people are comfortable before the home visit.
During the first visit he performs a thorough examination, addresses specific complaints, and makes the first adjustment to improve body function.
Things take time to heal and resolve, so the next step is to talk about follow-up visits and how they will progress.
“I mean a lot of peeling an onion because you have to see how things go,” Bennett said.
One person who has used Bennett’s services is friend Brianna Swantek of Columbus Township.
“I thought it was such an amazing idea to have a walking chiropractor who could come to your home,” he said in a written message.
Swantek had never been to a chiropractor and was nervous about her first appointment. But he was confident that Bennett knew he needed more than massages or ice for his constant neck pain.
“Lindsey was able to adjust me for the first time and relieve the pain I felt for years,” Swantek said.
Bennett’s own experience with the field began when she was little. Her mother took her and her brother to a chiropractor.
His mother went to the chiropractor for pain, but Bennett went for respiratory problems and his brother for stomach problems.
Bennett did not realize how much his respiratory problems affected him until they left.
“It’s the body that does it all on its own,” he said.
