Chiropractors are trained to work with the whole body. In fact, chiropractors in Oregon are able to be primary care physicians although most of us do not practice this way. We help people with structural issues such as neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, jaw pain, numbness, tingling or pain in the arms or legs, ankle pain etc.
We also help people realize their optimum health potential since we can help people move better through rehabilitation exercise and through nutritional therapy.
Often times when we work with people visceral symptoms improve too. Often times improved digestion, reduced constipation and heart burn, improved immune system function, improved cardiovascular health and improved mental outlook are some positive side-effects of chiropractic care.
Many chiropractors have a wellness focus, helping people reduce physical, emotional and chemical stressors in the body so folks not only feel better they actually start functioning at a higher level. Most professional athletes have a chiropractor on board since performance improves with chiropractic care.
