Welcome to The Backbone-Naprapathic Rehab Clinic
Rhonda Benavides and Rozee Benavides are a mother-and-daughter team and have been dreaming of opening a 'wellness' clinic for the last 12 years. Back then, it was a pie in a sky dream; we had no idea what our clinic would look like, or what we would be doing exactly, we just knew that we wanted to have some sort of clinic where we would be helping people as a team. Today, we are operating our clinic focusing on chronic and acute pain pathologies for all ages in the City of Albuquerque.
The Backbone is changing the way that pain is treated - we treat more than just symptoms; we treat the whole person. Every individual we care for is different, so we create a treatment plan specific to their needs. We take the extra time to understand our patient's individual needs and understand our role in helping every single patient.
Whether it is relieving chronic pain, correcting posture with therapeutic exercise, navigating the healthcare system, getting you a handicap placard, or advocating for improved ergonomics at your workplace, we help, validate, advocate, and care for every patient at The Backbone. The Benavides team is dedicated to keeping our patients healthy, moving, and pain-free.
So What is Naprapathy?
Naprapathy (nuh·pra·pa·thee) is hands-on connective tissue manipulation therapy combined with therapeutic exercise, and nutritional counseling aiming to decrease pain and disability in the neuromusculoskeletal system. Doctors of naprapathy use different adjunctive therapies and manipulative techniques depending on the patient's presentation and the patient's goals, to relieve pain and return the body to normal function.
