Meet the Chiropractors



Dr. Hendrickson is a Washington native growing up in Sequim, WA. He received his Doctor of Chiropractic at Palmer-West College in Sunnyvale, CA and has been licensed in this state since 1991. He serves Tacoma and University Place and is busy promoting chiropractic healing to his community. With over 30 years of experience he has seen a variety of cases.  With advanced training in headache analysis and tissue injury care he has developed a system of in office and home care that gets consistent results.  As a result of these systems attorneys and medical doctors have referred many difficult cases over the last three decades to Dr. Hendrickson.



As a member of one of the largest  chiropractic families in the world, I’ve always had a passion for this profession.  After attending Washington State University back in the early 90’s, I received my Chiropractic degree from Life University in 1999.  Since then I’ve been a partner in one of the biggest offices in the state to a now slightly more scaled down, friendlier and casual environment to welcome new and longtime patients in, at Discover Life Chiropractic. I pride myself on being as thorough and specific with the analysis and management of one’s care as possible.  As a former athlete, I see many people for extremities and sport related issues of all kinds, auto injuries as well as general family care.  My adjusting techniques consists of CBP, motion palpation, Pettibon, Thompson drop and Activator methods which allows me to customize my adjusting based upon patient needs and requests.  Anytime you’re a patient of mine, I consider you family and will go to any length to make sure you get the results you’re after.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I have been going to Discover Life Chiropractic for 5 years. I am an athlete who went in with low back pain and some knee issues. It did take time but to this day I do not have low back pain or knee pain as long as I am staying healthy with periodic adjustments. Dr. Dave knows his stuff and is attentive to concerns (if you are feeling something make sure you tell him). I feel so aligned and feel like I am functioning at a high level each day. If I can, I like to use Dr. Daves partnering doctor for extremity adjustments (feet, arms, legs) he is exceptional especially with those! Like with anything you have to be consistent, can't just go 3 times and expect to be healed. Hope this was helpful! Best, Alex

    So... I have had back pain all my life and neck pain from a car accident causing severe and frequent migraines. Other chiropractors just did a "quick fix" that lasted a couple days at most. This chiropractor, David, has practically eliminated my neck pain and migraines and my back pain had decreased tons. Now usually when I have pain it is because I have bad posture or I need to stretch or build up muscle to keep my spine in place. I understand he can only do so much but to be pain free you have to put in work also. WITH ALL THAT SAID, the pain has gone down from constant to occasional and from severe pain to mostly mild and we are still working on it. Would recommend the chiropractic service there to anyone.

    I have experienced fairly sever neck pain for the last few years. Have been to my doctor, had ultrasounds etc. Nothing was working. I started going to David at Discover life a few months ago as a last resort to deal with the pain and the difference is amazing even with just this short amount of time. He explains everything very clearly and even has me doing stretching and work while at home. His staff is great and always friendly when I come in. I would highly recommend Discover Life Chiropractic.
