Chiropractor Bill Jensen D.C.
At the age of 9, Dr. Jensen was already actively involved with soccer, basketball, baseball, karate and amateur wrestling. While wrestling one day against a friend in practice he sustained a severe neck injury that left him temporarily paralyzed from the neck down. After a few anxious moments he slowly regained feeling in his arms and legs and it seemed that everything was fine, with the exception of a sore neck. Days later however, he began to have severe migraine headaches with any type of physical activity. Any type of activity would trigger a headache, followed by 8-10 hours of agonizing pain, nausea, and vomiting until the headache would pass.
At the advice of a family friend Dr. Jensen was taken to the local chiropractor for an evaluation. He was told he had a subluxation (bone out of its normal alignment) on the upper right side of his neck
which was pinching a nerve and causing the headaches. So he began
treatment, and within 3 chiropractic adjustments the headaches were gone.
It was three years before Dr. Jensen had another migraine, he and his family never thought it could be the result of the prior neck injury. When the only relief came from his father massaging his neck they knew something was wrong in the same area the injury had occurred. Living in a new town they visited a new chiropractor and found a subluxation in the same area as before, it had just not had been bad enough to cause the previous symptoms since his body had adapted to the misalignment. This chiropractor was different, he taught Dr. Jensen and his family the importance of correcting the problem and getting the symptoms under control, but also the value of supportive care and its role in sustaining health.
In high school Dr. Jensen used chiropractic care not only to prevent migraines but also to help prevent and aid in sports injuries. With his largely gained admiration of the chiropractic field it became clear to Dr. Jensen that he wanted to make a career of bringing people the same relief and success he had. He enrolled at the University of Minnesota followed by Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. In December of 2000, Dr. Jensen graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic and Bachelors of Science in Human Biology.
In June of 2001, Dr. Jensen made the move to sunny South Florida and began working at County Line Chiropractic Centers. Over the past 18 years, Dr. Jensen has helped thousands of people regain and maintain their health through his care. He has helped open and develop two successful practices in South Florida, has opened a third office in the Tradition Township in Port. Saint Lucie, a fourth east Port Saint Lucie on US Highway 1, and now a fifth office in Stuart. He has a background in the diagnosis and treatment of sports, auto and work related injuries and has authored several articles on treatment protocols for pediatric patients. His purpose in life is to teach people that good health is the door to improving every aspect of one’s life, and holistic health care is the key.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
