Understanding Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a branch of rehabilitative medicine that primarily addresses conditions affecting the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems. This includes issues like back pain (acute or chronic), whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, disc herniation or bulge, degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, muscle strains, ligament sprains, plantar fasciitis, and more!

Chiropractic treatment emphasizes the use of manual touch, joint mobilizations and adjustments, and additional services including postural screens, imaging studies, and more, to facilitate a variety of specific treatment goals. These goals depend on several factors, including: 

  • The patient's age
  • The patient's condition or diagnosis (and how it's uniquely presenting/affecting him or her)
  • The patient's specific needs (e.g., decreased pain, swelling, or inflammation; increased mobility, strength, or endurance)
  • The patient's overall personal and family medical history
  • The patient's personal desires and lifestyle

Despite common misconception, chiropractic care is a lot more than just "cracking backs." Through targeted pressure, we can literally stimulate the central nervous system to down-regulate (turn down the volume on) pain signals and trigger the release of analgesic hormones to give you a natural pain-relieving experience as we work with your body through additional techniques (like massage, acupuncture, and corrective exercises) to help it heal itself. 

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care at Our Portland Clinic

Our patients tend to experience significant improvement in many of their symptoms and dysfunction. Here are a few specific benefits of chiropractic care services you can expect from our team:

  • Services and techniques are completely free of medications or invasive approaches, and have virtually minimal to no side effects.
  • Research shows that chiropractic care can significantly improve a range of conditions including back pain and neck pain - whether acute or chronic.
  • Chiropractic care is safe for people of all ages, from infants and children to people in their 80's and up!
  • A chiropractor can identify so-called "hidden" factors contributing to dysfunction - such as limited range of motion, weakness, old scar tissue, poor posture, etc. - which can exacerbate a condition. By addressing these issues, outcomes are much longer-lasting and complete!

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."
    Kelly McDonald / Portland, OR
