Achieving a well-balanced and well-functioning body isn’t out of your reach, but it is very important to your quality of life, no matter your lifestyle. When the body is in distress, it can take over many aspects of your life. Your work can suffer, your energy levels may decrease, you may feel more emotional or depressed. And that’s not even mentioning how it affects your family and friends.
Knowing that chiropractic care can alleviate these problems quickly, easily, safely, and naturally should help you make a favorable decision about your health. Choosing to see our team is a smart decision. You’ll get results from the root of the problem and start to feel like your old self again (or better!).
We are visited by a variety of people with different aches and pains, but all are determined to get their bodies in check. It’s our job to help you reach your wellness goals, and we are dedicated to your progress.
What our patients say about their condition
Our patients come in with many theories on their condition and how they’ve been treating it, and sometimes they’re right. However, thanks to the internet, self-diagnosing is at its peak and while we appreciate the effort, speaking to a doctor about your ailment is always the smartest move.
Some of the conditions our patients assume they have are:
- Slipped disc
- Herniated disc
- Pinched nerve
More often than not, these aren’t the actual underlying causes of their pain. It’s crucial that we understand your discomfort area and level in order for us to start to determine the cause.
We get a lot of patients at our Oregon City chiropractic clinic who:
- Feel dull pain under the shoulder when working out
- Feel sharp pain in the lower back when lifting weights
- Can’t turn their head comfortably
- Can’t lift their arm overhead without pain
- Have headaches while looking at the computer screen
These bits of information arm us with necessary details for determining what’s causing your problems. After our detailed evaluation, we will be able to accurately find the root of your discomfort and start getting your life back on track.
Typical conditions treated
Spinal Musculoskeletal Injuries
- Back pain and low back pain (lumbar pain)
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Spinal stenosis
- Herniated disc
Spinal musculoskeletal problems can cause issues throughout your body if not treated. When one area of the body is compromised, it’s up to other joints, muscles, and ligaments to help out; however, in doing so, those areas can get injured too. Having a balanced and aligned spine means the spine is supporting the areas it should be.
Athletic / Sports Injuries
- Ankle problems
- Tennis elbow
- Plantar fasciitis / flat feet
- Bulging disc
- Golf injury
- Running / triathlon injuries
- Shin splints
- Lifting injury
- CrossFit injury
- Muscle overuse
Sports injuries can be very serious, even when they aren’t physically very serious. When someone is working toward a goal and an injury stands in the way of meeting that goal, training, time, effort, and passion are at stake. We understand that and will do whatever we can to ensure you make it to that competition, race, or event. Even if the event is simply getting back to the gym, we’re here to make it happen as quickly and safely as possible.
If entering an event, it’s important to maintain your strength throughout your training process, being sure to warm up and cool down and not to overdo it. If you’re looking for quality help with getting to the next level, whatever that means to you, we know what it takes to help you get there. Supporting your body to the fullest extent is what we do.
Personal Injuries & Accidents
- Car accidents
- Recovery through rehabilitation after surgery or accident
- Overworked muscles
- Orthopedic issues
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Poor posture
- Text neck
We put our bodies through a lot, and we expect a lot from them in return. Upkeep is vital to your health and body safety. Even if you sit at a desk all day, your body is suffering from overworked muscles and likely poor posture. Usually, some easy tips and fixes are all you need to get your body in optimal health and fully functioning, free of discomfort. Stretches and exercises are a great health strategy to implement into your daily routine. Our doctors can give you the tools to get your wellness goals met.
- Knee pain / IT Band Syndrome
- Leg pain
- Ankle pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Wrist pain
- Hand pain
- Rotator cuff
- Carpal tunnel
Joints, muscles, and ligaments run throughout your body, so it’s not just the back and neck that are prone to injury. For most of us, our extremities are crucial to our lifestyle, so when they start to ache, we take notice. Hurt knees, aching shoulders, sore ankles can all make a good day go bad. Taking care of your body through chiropractic techniques provide natural, effective support to the body parts used daily.
Family Chiropractic Care
- Pregnancy / prenatal
- Youth / pediatric
- High school athletes
We service all stages of life and are proud to offer our insight and care to anyone who wants it, no matter their age or ability level.
Back pain / low back pain / lumbar pain
Chiropractors are usually associated with back pain, and rightfully so. This is the number one reason we get for a visit to our office. When your spinal cord is in jeopardy, people take notice. Back discomfort can wreak havoc on your lifestyle and lead to other injuries and more pain. Your spine supports almost every move you make, so treat it well and when in doubt, visit us to ensure its health.
Neck pain and stiffness are a big problem, and that doesn’t appear to be slowing down. With our dependence on devices (including computers), our necks are paying the price. Proper posture is as important to the neck as it is to the back. Learning how to best support your spine will contribute greatly to your comfort and keep your body healthy.
From stiffness to radiating pain to loss of range of motion, shoulder pain can be debilitating. Exercise and stretching combined with chiropractic care can provide safe relief from the discomfort. Whether you suffer from a rotator cuff injury or an impingement, we can help reduce your pain from the source.
Anyone who suffers from sciatica knows the difficulty it brings with it. Your sciatic nerve starts in your lower back and runs down each leg. When it’s not functioning as it should, patients can suffer from severe low back pain, hip pain, and buttock and leg pain. All of these can affect the most minute movement. A chiropractic plan will help ease the pain and get you up and running again.
We see our fair share of sports-related injuries, and they never come in a one-size-fits-all, so we offer individualized treatment plans that cater to the patient’s needs and goals. Using non-invasive techniques, we’ll get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible, with low downtime and greater strength. We know you need your body to perform at its best, and we’re determined to make that happen.
We work with several kinds of athletes, including:
- Golfers: Golf (and many other sports) requires the constant, repetitive use of specific muscles and joints; this can lead to overuse injuries that make your sport impossible to play. Chiropractic care provides services that heal and strengthen so you can get back out there.
- Running / CrossFit (gym) / triathlon injuries: Excessive use of the knees and ankles can cause some irritation and easily affect your workouts and runs. Ongoing, proactive chiropractic care is a smart move if you are an active person, but especially if you’ve gotten injured. Pain management will play a big role in getting your lifestyle back, and we can help through joint and muscle strengthening.
- High school athletes: We want our high school athletes to perform at their peak without the use of medications to mask pain. Strength training and learning how to treat your body from a young age will pay off for a safe body and overall good health in the future.
