Welcome to Bente Family Chiropractic

Our office is committed to providing Quality Care for our patients in a Healing, Loving and Nurturing environment.  Our goal is to educate our patients about the many benefits of Chiropractic Care along with Nutrition to support a Wellness Lifestyle.

Dr. Kathleen Bente
  received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1992,  from
New York Chiropractic College, in Seneca Falls, NY.  She opened her office in 1993 in Westwood, NJ and is currently practicing in the same office.   Her practice focuses on Wellness and Nutrition for the entire family.

Her patients range from newborns to her oldest patient who was 94.  She uses a number of gentle techniques which are considered non-force.  This method is called the Activator Technique which uses an instrument to gently adjust the spine.  Dr. Bente graduated from the Swedish Institute of Massage, NY, in 1986 and received her degree/license as a Massage Therapist.  She incorporates the soft tissue work into her treatments which helps the patient relax before their adjustment.  She has been using Laser technology in her practice for many years, which has allowed her to speed the healing time and recovery of her patients’ conditions.  In November of 2010,  she added a new type of Combination Laser Therapy called Multi Radiance Laser and her patients are seeing amazing results. In 2014 she has added another new technique called Rapid Release Technology (RRT),  focused on the relief of soft tissue problems.

In February 2011, she has expanded her services and is now offering a comprehensive nutritional program   To complement this Wellness and Fitness program, she offers a Whole Body Vibration Machine treatment in her office. The WBV machine can be utilized for not only achieving overall health and vitality, but can be used to rehabilitate sport injuries, and strengthen joints and muscles.  Many other benefits include improving balance, bone density, weight loss, muscle tone and flexibility.

Dr Bente is currently
an accredited Tai Chi Chih instructor and is teaching classes at Madison Spine Physical Therapy Center in Westwood.

Our Philosophy and Care Objectives

We believe that knowledge can be empowering. The more we understand our bodies and the mechanisms that cause injuries, the more committed we become to getting better. Our office is devoted to educating you about your body, how it works and how to heal it. We believe in working with our clients as partners, to learn from each other in our journey together to maximize health.

The body has the ability to heal itself. In Chiropractic, we facilitate that ability by adjusting the spine and unblocking the life force of the body. This allows the body to heal itself as it is designed to originally. Our purpose in Chiropractic is to help people feel better and to educate them in proper nutrition, chiropractic health, exercise, and the true cause of injury and illness. We weren't born with owner's manuals unfortunately, so it's our job to educate you in the proper care of the body, and optimum performance so that you have the chance to optimize YOUR body's performance.
