FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our physicians are trained in the use of multiple techniques and choose from them depending on each patient’s unique needs. These are included, but not limited to: diversified technique, drop tables/speeder boards, activator/arthrostim, blocking, flexion-distraction therapy, muscle energy techniques, strain-counter strain, Fascial Manipulation (FM), Functional Range Release (FR), neurodynamics, etc.
We believe in the use of techniques that allow one to maintain their health. Does this mean adjustments every month? No, not for everyone. What about every 3 months? Again, no, not for everyone. Our thoughts are this: First and foremost, you should have something worth maintaining. If you are constantly hurting, but manipulation every now and again makes your symptoms more tolerable, then we would recommend uncovering the cause of the symptoms and treatment of this cause. Secondly, everything we offer in our clinics/gyms is a tool. You should be maintaining your health with the tool that is right for the job. This could include manipulation, but could also easily include exercise, dietary changes and lifestyle modifications. This is the type of maintenance care we believe in.

Yes! Our physicians are licensed as portal-of-entry practitioners in the State of Oregon. This means that they can perform these physicals and sign-off on participation in your sport. Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) physicals contain other requirements that should be discussed further with our physicians.
Absolutely. Our physicians are trained to manage most all neuromusculoskeletal conditions. A list of treated conditions includes, but is not limited to: disc herniations/bulges, headaches, muscle/ligament strain/sprains, TMJ syndrome, whiplash injuries, bursitis, tendonitis/tendonosis, rotator cuff injuries, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), golfer’s elbow, tennis elbow, nerve entrapment syndromes, trigger finger, ITB/TFL syndrome, femeroacetabular impingement, snapping hip syndrome, jumper’s knee, shin splints, patellafemoral syndrome, MCL/ACL injuries, metatarsalgia, plantar fascitis, tarsal tunnel syndrome and more.
An overwhelming majority of the public doesn’t know what chiropractors are licensed to do in the State of Oregon. Aside from management of most all neuromusculoskeletal conditions (barring some), chiropractors are licensed as portal-of-entry physicians in the State of Oregon. This means that all chiropractors in Oregon must demonstrate competence in (and pass state board exams) the ability to diagnose most any condition that the general public could present with, or at least be able to understand when the presenting patient needs a referral and who that referral should be directed to. Chiropractors are licensed to deliver babies (small amounts of extra training required), perform minor surgery (stitches and removal of non-cancerous lesions), order MRI/CT/X-ray/etc., as well as draw blood and collect urine/feces for lab studies (as well as interpret the results of the studies).
Absolutely. In regards to both, our doctors can be the attending physicians in auto accident and work injury cases. Get in touch with us if you have further questions about your specific case.

Nope. We refer our patients to imaging centers when needed. We do NOT perform x-rays on every patient we treat. We perform x-rays when clinically indicated. This is typically when fracture or structural derangement is suspected following trauma, or when cancer/tumor/infection is suspected. We will also use imaging at times when a patient is not responding to care as anticipated. The simple reason is this: Most conditions do not require x-rays (or any imaging) for diagnosis or successful management. Additionally, current recommended clinical guidelines do not support the use of imaging aside from the above-mentioned circumstances.

Our initial visits are anywhere from 30 min. – 1 hour depending on case complexity.

No. In our clinic, we only use the medical definition of “subluxation”, meaning partial dislocation. The chiropractic term “subluxation” doesn’t even carry an agreed-upon definition among the chiropractic profession. There is no current, consistent, agreed-upon research demonstrating the existence of chiropractic subluxations or the idea that these entities can impinge upon spinal nerves and cause disease/illness throughout the human body (including visceral/organ pathology). Our clinic is an evidence-based practice, meaning that we take the best available research and apply this directly to our management of patients and training clients. We feel that we owe it to our patients to give them the best of what we have in conservative neuromusculoskeletal care.
