Madden joins Soldotna Chiropracctic Clinic

Dr. Greg Madden, DC has recently joined Dr. Endsley and his team at Soldotna Chiropractic Clinic at the corner of Redoubt and Binkley to help keep you pain free. Formerly from Texas, Dr. has been in practice since 2001 and moved from the Lone Star State some four years ago. “I had come to Alaska years ago and fell in love with it and tried get back and have the rest of the family move up here but one day led to another and finally I said we’re going back to stay and here we are happy to be helping people be able to get out and enjoy this great land,” he told the Dispatch.

Dr. Madden says he uses a gentle touch to adjusting that gets great results. He also notes that he avoids neck rotation in most adjustments. “Chiropractors are a lot like a pair of gloves or shoes, the perfect fit makes all the difference in the world,” he said. “It’s very much a hands-on business. Chiropractic is about restoring bones to their proper juxtaposition, which means making joints properly align so that they’ll function at their best.” While low back or neck pain are common ailments that bring patients to a Chiropractor, Dr. Madden is quick to point out that Chiropractic is meant for preventing those troubles in the first place, “Getting a regular tune-up for your vehicle is important and beneficial. With aircraft it’s required by law. But you could always get a new vehicle or plane – you only get one body. The human body is the most complex machine ever designed, but it still needs either a little bit of preventative maintenance or a significant amount of repair,” says Madden.

Special training allows Dr. Madden to work with expectant mothers and newborns through something known as Webster Protocol, but he says he gets great results with people of all ages. Dr. Madden like most Alaskans loves hunting and fishing is a private pilot and embraces Alaska for all it has to offer, “Well maybe with the exception of my grudge towards the mosquitos and white socks.” As a chiropractor he utilizes Diversified, Thompson, Activator, Gonstead, SOT, Webster and other techniques or protocols that he refers to as, “Tools to help with any troubles you may have. Chiropractors are trained to maximize the function of almost every joint in the body, gently adjusting the upper neck vertebrae on newborns and children allows the Eustachian tubes to open and equalize pressure in the middle ear, for instance, keeping them from having to have tubes in their ears and the permanent (though slight) hearing loss that entails. Every cell in the body is controlled, for the most part, by the nerves. All nerves (except the cranial nerves) pass through the spine. Nerves carry messages to the brain as well as from it. If the spine is misaligned and putting pressure on a nerve, the body’s communication system is compromised. Chiropractic is about removing these interferences and keeping or restoring the body’s function as God meant it to be,” he says. For an appointment or more information call Dr. Greg Madden at the Soldotna Chiropractic Clinic at 262-9117 or stop by the clinic at the corner of Binkley and Redoubt in Soldotna.
