Our Portland chiropractor offers a variety of pain management treatments and techniques, including those that offer back pain relief. We treat chronic and acute back pain with a holistic, total-body approach that does not involve the use of any invasive medical procedures.
Our chiropractor in Portland treats:
Chiropractic adjustments with our chiropractor offer back pain relief for individuals from Portland, Gresham, Camas, Happy Valley, Fairview, Troutdale, as well as Vancouver, WA suffering from a wide range of illnesses and injuries. Best of all, our treatments don’t require expensive surgeries or prescription pain medications.
At Dr. Samantha Stuart’s chiropractic clinic we offer several types of spinal adjustments, including the Diversified Technique, Activator Method, manipulation of the extremity joints, cold laser and Myofascial Release. Our Portland chiropractor uses these techniques to realign and decompress the spine in an effort to successfully alleviate pressure on the discs and surrounding ligaments and muscles, and many of our patients report an immediate reduction in pain.
The Diversified Technique is the most common chiropractic adjustment. It involves the use of quick thrusts to realign the spine and joints in the extremities. During this treatment, the patient may hear pops and cracks but should not feel any pain.
The Activator Method involves the use of a specially designed medical device that delivers a very precise and gentle pressure to exact points. This method works well for arthritis patients seeking the care of a chiropractor in Portland.
Myofascial Release is used to increase flexibility and range of motion and reduce back pain. During this procedure, the deep tissues of the back are treated with varying manual pressure until they release. The chiropractor typically uses his or her hands, elbows and forearms to create the needed pressure.
Along with chiropractic adjustments, our chiropractor in Portland offer massage therapy, physical therapy, and counseling on nutrition. We strive to alleviate pain and facilitate healing with a total body approach to wellness. Massage therapy loosens muscles and improves circulation, which helps in pain management. Physical therapy helps strengthen muscles and improves stamina, and proper nutrition gives the body what it needs to function and heal injuries.
