Portland chiropractor helps with back pain and neck pain.jpgHere at the office of Dr. Samantha Stuart DC, PC, we are proud to introduce a new educational resource for our patients through our new blog. We hope you will add it to your list of favorite online reading because we hope to bring you a steady stream of helpful and engaging information about our practice and chiropractic care in general.

If you are looking into chiropractic adjustment for the first time, you may be experiencing confusion or doubts about exactly what we can do for you. We diagnose and correct physical imbalances that may affect your posture, functionality and general health. Your spine may have been jolted out of balance due to an injury, or you may have suffered from an undiagnosed chronic condition for years. Chiropractic adjustment is a natural, non-invasive way to help relieve back pain, neck pain and a host of other physical issues.

Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy and More for Back Pain and Neck Pain Management

Our office makes use of two basic forms of chiropractic adjustment. Diversified adjustment, the traditional method of spinal manipulation used by chiropractors for decades, is highly effective in treating a broad spectrum of such problems. In our other method, known as the Thompson technique, we place you on a special table that allows us to precisely measure any misalignments related to leg length or other tiny physical differences that might cause neck pain, back pain or other symptoms.

We do much more than perform adjustments -- we freely employ other therapeutic techniques as well, including massage therapy, physical therapy, personal training and nutritional counseling to optimize your everyday health. We will discuss these various supportive therapies in future blog posts, along with new advances in the fields of health and wellness. We are more than just a Portland chiropractor -- we are your health and wellness information center!

Unless you treat the source of the pain, of coruse it's going to keep coming back. A massage might loosen the muscles and release the trigger points, but if you leave the massage table and adopt the poor posture and bad ergonomics that brought the problem on in the first place, then yes, it's going to come right back. If your engine is leaking oil, you can hardly expect that adding more is going to fix the problem permanently you need to find out where the leak is happening and fix it.Depending on what exactly is going on, it might be a case of needing ongoing maintenance. If it's a structural deformity like scoliosis, flat feet, or knocked knees that's the source of the problem, as an adult these things will probably not go totally away and need to be managed regularly. But if it's a case of using your body poorly bending over to lift heavy objects, using poor posture, holding a phone with your shoulder, etc., then you can change your habits and help the problem dramatically. Even fixable problems are going to take time to undo. You can't expect lasting results from one or two sessions. You didn't do this to yourself in 2-3 days, it's not going to go away in that length of time, either.
