I started seeing Dr Benson in October of 2015. I could not swallow solid food and had not been able to do so for almost 3 years. I also had a Dowengers hump. By Dec of 2016 my swallowing was back to normal and the Dowenger hump is nearly gone. Dr Benson works intuitively with his hands in very nuanced areas that neurological diagnostic tools are not able to access. My issue with swallowing was neurological. His work helped the overall health of my nervous system as well as general wellbeing. I have had a lot of healing in this short amount of time with Dr. Benson. Now I come in to see him when I need a tune up and I always feel better.He also helped my husband overcome cronically painful back oroblems. I enjoy Dr Benson and his work and look forward to my office visits.
Dr Benson knows how to pinpoint the issue of whatever problem area I describe to him.His consistantly calm, quiet demeanor helps me relax as he works on the problem area.I have seen him for years for the relief of many aches & pains such as neck, upper & lowerback, shoulders, hips and sciatica at various times throughout those years---and I always getinstant improvement. Following his after-treatment advice is key to my healing the area, and issurprisingly do-able. Dr Benson works for me!
I was totally closed to seeing a Chiropractor from past bad experiences. However, when I wrenched something bending and twisting to throw something in the garbage, the night before starting a new job. Oh, yes, and the new job required lifting 50# and they meant it!Well, I started that new job, pretending nothing was wrong, but often leaving barely able to walk out the door.I tried all my old standbys, and while getting a treatment from an incredible massage therapist, she said "I think you need more than massage". "I've heard really good things about Dr. Benson, he's a Chiropractor in Poulsbo."Immediately I became defensive because of those past experiences, but she prompted me to consider him after hearing all the positives she'd heard from her clients.All I can say, is Dr. Benson is a professional healer, his focus is on you and the process of relieving your pain. And, a bonus for me is that no matter what we're working on, I leave his office and my head feels clearer. You just leave going "Ahhh" for the pain relief and just general well being.I will continue to see Dr. Benson regularly, even though he's totally taken care of my original issue. Hey, lifting 25-50# regularly, on your feet all day, bending, climbing, pushing and turning 67 in April- I want to re-adjust regularly!And, keep in mind that Dr. Benson's treatments are a process to healing. Be patient and diligent, those parts of our bodies that have been injured or misused for years (at least for me), probably won't be repaired overnight!I recommend that if you have pain, you consider visiting with Dr. Benson. Pain makes you tired, makes your brain fuzzy and changes your life while you compensate for it. Dr. Benson gives you a new lease on life.
Dr Benson has been treating me since 2001. I visited him on the advice of a friend and haven't looked back. He has treated and/or advised me through numerous complaints. I'm now 83 years old and together we are working to counteract the effects of severe arthritis in both hips. I highly recommend his expertise.
I have seen probably 10 chiropractors in various cities in my life and none have delivered the level of calm and consistent expertise that characterizes Dr. Benson's work. I've had particular trouble, due to a accident years ago, finding a chiropractor who can adjust my neck. Dr. Benson knew exactly how to work with it and that's made a huge difference in my flexibility. Visits are once a month for preventive care and more often if I've thrown something out of whack. I'm extremely grateful for this man's dedication to his profession!
Dr. Benson has made a major difference in my life. I have had episodic back spasm attacks for the last 20 years, when we came to Silverdale 11 years ago & I was directed to him due to his kinesiology background it was & is amazing. No more major back spasms, I come in once a month for a "tune-up" & am good to go for another month. I also have "Bilateral Thoracic Outlet Syndrome", which makes both arms go numb & is very uncomfortable. He takes care of it in our monthly session, never any numbness & tingling now!!
I think he is pretty amazing as well as very professional.
Over the years, I have been treated by 4-5 other chiropractors, and am pleased to recommend Dr. Benson as an exceptional practitioner. When I began treatment in January 2015, I was miserable, with headaches as well as with left-sided neck, upper back, and shoulder pain and numbness. As my symptoms were chronic, my progress has been in "baby steps". However, I am now grateful to share that my headaches are resolved, and my other complaints are easily managed with adjustments every 1-2 weeks. I am truly grateful to Dr. Benson for his expertise and support of my wellness.
I suffered from tennis elbow for 3 years. I had tried everything...massage therapy, sports medicine, occupational therapy, cortisone shots. After I visited Dr. Benson my elbow healed soon after. Also he seemed to be the only one who recognized that the neck pain I also had was connected to my elbow pain. I appreciate what he did for me and recommend him highly!
In early spring 2011, I did a number on my lower back (an MRI showed significant damage). It was so bad that I couldn't walk a block or stand up straight. I tried several options, such as physical therapy, chiropractic adjustment (with an activator), steroid injections, and pain pllls, all with minimal results. A friend told me about Dr. Benson, so I gave him a try. Shortly after I started seeing him he got the Cutting Edge Laser. After a series of treatments my back did improve, and I am about 90 percent of what I was before. Walking and standing are no longer a problem, and life is much better. Thank you Dr. Benson.
My jaw ‘issues’ began back when I was in my twenties. It was mostly nothing serious, but always a clicking, catching, or slight pain. In the last few years (I am now sixty) my jaw had become increasingly painful and stiff. I could not bite into apples, I could not eat sandwiches, and chewing was often quite painful. Repeated visits to a chiropractor did nothing for the pain, and I found my situation deteriorating at a rate that frightened me.
A friend suggested cranio-sacral therapy (I had never heard of it before), but I began doing research and ended up in Dr. Benson’s office.
And I must admit, nothing short of a miracle has occurred. In two sessions, all my pain was gone and it has not returned. I can open my jaw at least twice as wide and I now eat virtually everything with ease.
I continue to see Dr. Benson for maintenance of my jaw and now use him for all my chiropractic needs – which I can happily attest to his services in this arena as well.
I would refer Dr. Benson without reservation – he has been a godsend to me.
