Welcome...We serve men, women, and children of all ages, looking for relief from back, neck, and joint pain. Just like the medical field where patients see a specialist beyond their general practitioner, Dr. Bendiks D.C. is your Harlingen chiropractor go-to professional within the field.

Pain isn’t uncommon, but it is unique to the individual. Every person who lives with pain has a different lifestyle, job, activity level, medical history, genetic makeup, and other factors. There is no one single approach to relief that works for everyone. Instead, every individual needs a customized, comprehensive treatment plan that addresses their specific needs.

Dr. Jean-Scott Bendiks of Harlingen, TX, is dedicated to providing this type of care to every individual he treats. He has served in the chiropractic field for 42 years in various capacities, including as an assistant professor at Parker Chiropractic College. He is a multilingual chiropractor who has helped his patients find true and lasting relief from issues such as back pain, neck pain, disc problems, spinal injuries, whiplash, arthritis, spinal stenosis, headaches and migraines, leg and arm numbness, pregnancy pain and discomfort, sciatica, muscle strains, scoliosis, work injuries, vertigo, and more. He also provides wellness care to keep patients feeling their best.

Dr. Bendiks is certified in post-spine surgery care and manipulation under anesthesia. Additionally, he concentrates on the Cox Flexion Distraction technique, adjustments including the Diversified technique, therapeutic exercises, soft tissue techniques, and more according to the patient’s needs. His dedication to his patients has led him to develop a network of highly trained specialists in and around Harlingen, TX, which includes orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, pain management doctors, and more. If chiropractic alone is not enough to provide the most optimal results for his patients, he’ll recommend the necessary specialists and work closely with them through treatment.

Nothing should stand in the way of receiving the relief and general health you deserve, and Dr. Bendiks is dedicated to helping you overcome any obstacles so that you can live a healthy pain-free life. If you are in the Harlingen, TX, area, contact our office today to schedule a chiropractic appointment.

The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.

D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.



The education of a Chiropractor DC is held to similar educational standards as other health fields. After completing basic sciences, DC attends 4-year chiropractic college. This means DC are primary care doctors, which means you don't need a referral to see a chiropractor.
