Meet Dr. Jensen
Dr. Mark Jensen grew up in Blooming Prairie, Minnesota, a small town in the southeastern part of the state. During his childhood he participated in many sports such as football, basketball, baseball, track, and hockey. He later became involved in golf and rugby as well, and has been no stranger to sports injuries. These injuries and a knack for science and biology led to an interest in health care, although it was an auto accident while attending the University of Minnesota that led to his first chiropractic experience. So impressed by the quality of the care and the 100% natural approach of chiropractic, he accepted the challenge of becoming a Chiropractor. Six years later in 1996, Dr. Jensen graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minnesota with both Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees.
Following graduation, Dr. Jensen relocated from Minnesota to Rocky Mount, North Carolina where, as an associate with Hammer Chiropractic, he treated thousands of patients young and old suffering auto accident and athletic injuries, neck and low back pain, headaches, TMJ, sciatica, disc injuries, and carpal tunnel syndrome, among many other conditions. After nine years of practice in Rocky Mount, Dr. Jensen decided to open his own office in Raleigh, and in October 2006, opened Corrective Chiropractic.
Corrective Chiropractic is conveniently located in the Glenwood South area of downtown Raleigh. This beautiful office offers state of the art technology used to detect and correct posture and spinal dysfunction, utilizing computerized thermal and muscle testing and high speed full spine x-ray as well as spinal traction. Dr. Jensen uses several spinal adjusting techniques (Diversified, Gonstead, and CBP) as well as soft tissue adjusting techniques (active myofascial release, trigger point therapy and electric stimulation). Neuromuscular retraining and exercise are also used to help retrain the body to healthier patterns of function.
Corrective Chiropractic is a large chiropractic office that services many Raleigh families. Dr. Jensen’s mission through Corrective Chiropractic is to educate and adjust as many families toward optimal health using natural chiropractic care. To fulfill this purpose, Dr. Jensen provides education through classes in his office and at venues around town such as the YWCA and Target. He is also active at many local health fairs and 5K races around Raleigh; he further donates his time in support of the Raleigh Rugby Club (2007 Division II National Rugby Champions), and is available to speak to local organizations and office groups about natural and proactive health care.
Continuing education is important to Dr. Jensen who consistently reads chiropractic journals for the latest news and health updates, and attends seminars throughout the country to study the up to date information and techniques for the benefit of his patients.
Dr. Jensen resides in Raleigh with his wonderful other half, Kelly and their four dogs (Argos, Zoë, Honey and Nala).
