Chiropractic is for more than just your spine!

Did you know that chiropractors do more than adjust your spine? In fact, every day you can find Dr. Gabriel and I  at the Wellness Center PDX adjusting ribs, toes, feet, ankle, knees, hips, shoulder, elbows, wrists, hands, and fingers. 

Chiropractors are doctors specializing in neuromusculoskeletal conditions, that is we concern ourselves with nerves, muscles, bones, joints, and other soft tissue structures. We treat and provide support  care for sprains, strains, joint dysfunction, nerve impingement, fractures, and even things like ear infections, sinusitis, and seasonal allergies. 

It is important to look at how your body interacts with the environment, how nurture and nature have come together to develop your current condition – the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction. This allows you to actually deal with that underlying cause of your problem, rather than just masking the pain. 

At The Wellness Center PDX  we have a lot of tools at  hand to help uncover the underlying cause of pain. Then we put together an integrative treatment plan that often includes chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, and naturopathy. In the chiropractic department, we use adjustments, therapeutic kinesio -taping, therapeutic exercise, laser therapy, bracing,
soft tissue manipulation, and more. 

You don’t have to be in pain. If you haven’t tried chiropractic, and you have chronic or recurring pain, even if it is in your knees, ankles, hips, wrists, shoulders, etc… know this: most insurance plans provide access to chiropractic care – and we take most insurance plans, including Oregon Health Plan. 

Now is the time to start dealing with this, before it gets worse. If you have any questions, Call 503-389-5545  now and schedule an initial examination. We would be more than happy to waive initial  fee for you so we can start helping you out, and get you on the right track.

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    John Doe / Portland, OR
  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Gabriel and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."
    Jane Smith / Portland, OR
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Gabriel. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine - golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
