The first few visits at TWC

The first few visits are about information gathering by our providers. This allow us to build a comprehensive picture of your condition.

• X-Rays: are taken on your first visit to evaluate the spinal curvature, joints, disc space, skeletal health and to look for any reasons it may be unsafe to do spinal adjustments

• EMG: (electromyography) is a nerve study for patients with numbness or tingling to evaluate for nerve damage, impingement and where these are occurring.

• Ultrasound exam: of the muscles and tendons to rule out inflammation, dysfunction or injury. This is performed by the Naturopathic Doctor, who also evaluates your needs for other services in the office and helps coordinate your care.

• Acupuncture: is highly valuable in pain care and is a time tested, safe and effective way to boost your immune system.

As a multidisciplinary clinic we utilize the skills and knowledge of our entire team to guide your care.

Stages of Care

On your 3rd visit you will be presented with a treatment plan.

In the beginning of treatment it will be necessary to receive more frequent care. During this time we will:

• Work on increasing circulation, range of motion and mobility to your joints and muscles.

• Begin stretches and strengthening in physical therapy

• Provide passive therapies (acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, injections)

• Increase strength training as pain decreases

As your range of motion and pain improve, more exercises will be added so that the changes we are making can become long term.

Insurance Coverage

We run a benefits check for all patients prior to their second visit.

Your treatment plan (from your 3rd visit) will outline the services recommended as well as what your insurance covers We do our very best not to land patients with unexpected bills and are happy to arrange payment plans if needed.

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had a really attentive chiropractor who made sure that I was comfortable and heard about all of the offered services that would help me with my back problems. I came away feeling confident that the doc would help any way they can, and that's always cool. Definitely recommend."
    James Wells
  • "I was very impressed with the whole crew at Wellness Center PDX! Professional and compassionate, from the front desk to the clinicians. They talked me through procedures to ensure that I understood what was happening and what they needed to accomplish. Some temporary facilities issues (the A/C was scheduled for repairs, as it had not been operated since the previous autumn, and had been found to be out of repair) marred the visit, but staff had worked to mitigate the impact. Definitely worth a second visit. I'm glad I went."
    Brian Hester
  • "Everyone here is so nice! From Catina and Patricia at the front to Dr Gabriel, Nicole, and Daniel, everyone is so amazing! They are dedicated and patient with their explanations and treatments. Love my visits"
