Quality movement is key to a healthy, high functioning lifestyle, or for those who are highly active, your body is exposed to more impact and repetitive movement. If your movement is not biomechanically sound, you may be susceptible to more repetitive stress injuries. We help athletes avoid these pitfalls while improving their performance simultaneously.
For those who are more sedentary, you risk developing injury from deconditioning and small increases in activity levels often cause unnecessary injury. Don’t injure your low back on your first day out gardening! We can help prevent those unnecessary injuries as well as fix you up when they occur.
Whenever we add stress to the body, it’s important to take action to ensure the body can support us as it is intended. This is true for both our daily life and throughout our physical activities, sports, games, and workouts.
We work with all kinds of athletes:
- Avid weightlifters
- Everyday gym-goers
- And more
No matter your sport of choice, your talent matters. Your body is relying on you to take care of it so that it can take care of you. If you lead an active lifestyle or want to, proactive maintenance is just as essential as getting your injuries mended so your body can heal correctly.
Our team is here for your sports chiropractic care and rehabilitation. We recommend a visit to see us at the first sign of discomfort, pain, or loss of motion. By treating your injury quickly with natural, evidence-based solutions, you have less downtime, you avoid putting other areas of the body at risk, and you efficiently and quickly get back to doing what you love.
Our sports chiropractic patients trust us to get them ready for events and competitions, and you can too. We know what it takes to get your body and mind prepared, balanced, and performing at their best. No matter your current ability level or what your goal is, we will be of benefit.

Visiting a Chiropractor for My Sports Injury
When your body isn’t working at its potential and is consistently put at risk through repetitive activities, a chiropractor will help. Our team finds what’s causing your pain or other symptoms and remedies the cause at its core.
We don’t want our athletes to miss out on their events and have open communication regarding their abilities. We know you’ve put the time in and have been devoted to preparation; let our doctors safely and naturally keep that momentum going through our non-invasive solutions.
To get you up and running, you need to start the healing process as soon as possible. After we determine the root of your injury, we provide support through manual therapies, rehab, exercises, and stretches. These work in unison to strengthen your body and give endurance and sustainability before, during, and after your event.
Your unique plan is designed around your body’s current state and ability, your goals, and your protection. We will discuss your options and our solutions with you, so you feel confident in your results and can stay focused on your health and performance.
Let’s get you functioning at your peak and ready to give it your all.

Our Chiropractic Care and Rehabilitation Services
Sports chiropractic and strength and mobility rehabilitation go hand-in-hand at our Oregon City chiropractic clinic. We focus on sports medicine using a modern blend of functional movement assessments, strength and conditioning rehab, manual therapy techniques, along with massage therapy.
When you visit with us, you’re not just receiving an adjustment but getting a comprehensive review of your movement patterns, a dialogue about your personal goals and needs, and a breakdown of how we intend to optimize your body.
We use safe, non-invasive chiropractic solutions that aid the body in recovery for less downtime as it builds strength and supports you naturally and proactively.
Some of the therapies and techniques used by Dr. Ben and Dr.Kyle are:
Active Release Technique (ART)
This treatment works on the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves and quickly targets scar tissue, restoring function in the affected areas and minimizing pain. We use this safe solution on many of our muscle- and joint-overuse athletes.
Diversified Chiropractic Technique (DCT)
A targeted low-amplitude, high-velocity, manually-provided thrust to the restricted joint. Often, the DCT will immediately restore range of motion and offer comfort to the patient.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM)
These soft tissue manipulations utilize chiropractic instruments that deliver targeted pulses to specific joints, restoring range of motion to the affected vertebra or joint. We use this solution on patients in training and after an athletic event.
Laser therapy is a painless, non-invasive procedure that increases oxygen circulation and blood flow in the body, which helps the body to relax and heal. Our doctors use a class IV laser therapy that is the highest, most advanced level for ultimate results.
Covering injured areas of the body with this specially designed tape, pain and inflammation are reduced, the muscles can relax, and mobility will be restored.
Athletes see us for preventative support, enhanced performance and endurance, and to remedy pain and discomfort. Using rehabilitative therapies, our team can effectively maximize the body’s healing process and get it highly functioning.
Corrective exercises and stretches
We offer our patients in-office and at-home corrective exercises that promote higher function and health, offering preventative care through strength and endurance. These exercises are designed for the individual athlete to aid in performance, longevity, and overall movement.
Functional Movement Assessment
This movement assessment uses seven full-body movement tests that relay irregular or improper patterns so we can determine the best, fastest course of action for treatment.
Massage therapy allows the body to relax, stabilize, and rejuvenate. Our bodies take a beating, especially when we put them through tireless training and activity; we’ll help support yours through massage, which provides healing time and prepares it for its next endeavor.

“I am an athletic guy, and I was looking for a chiropractor that was more sport’s based instead of the normal adjustments that most chiropractors do. Not here. Dr. Kyle and his team go above and beyond to get you 100%. They don’t just look at the area that is bothering you they look at absolutely everything that could be causing your issue.
