Dr. Paul Hennicken

Hennicken Family Chiropractic

The Activator Method


“Always treat others the way you want to be treated” perfectly describes Dr. Paul Hennicken’s compassionate nature.  At a time when much health care (even some chiropractic care) is impersonal and abbreviated, Dr. Paul takes time with each patient and treats not just the spine, but the whole body and all its joints.  Dr. Hennicken’s work is results oriented.  He has found that most people experience significant relief with 2 to 6 adjustments with his gentle technique.


Dr. Paul is Advanced Proficiency Rated in the Activator technique.  This is the highest level of training for an Activator Doctor.  Activator Method is extremely safe, gentle and effective.  It is a research-based light-force chiropractic technique that does not require any “snap, crackle, or pop” of the bones but relies instead on a precision adjustment delivered by the Activator instrument.  Activator is a wonderful technique for anyone, including children. 


Dr. Paul J Hennicken is originally from Monroe, Michigan (Go Blue!).  He earned his Bachelors degree in Biology from the University of Toledo in Toledo, Ohio in 2003.  Shortly after graduation he married his high school sweetheart, and they moved to South Carolina where their three children were born.  Dr. Paul studied chiropractic at Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic in Spartanburg, and graduated with his Doctorate in 2007. He began practicing in Duncan, SC, and later moved to serve the Greenville and Taylors communities.  Now, he is a team member of The Whole Health Collective.  He is excited to offer true holistic health services to his patients and the community at large.
