Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain in Portland OR

New solutions to neck pain and upper back pain

Patients can suffer for years with the same neck issue and all they are told by the doctor is to take over-the-counter medications or prescription medications to get through the day. Eventually they are told to get a cervical MRI to further assess their injuries and imaging shows a herniated disc, and this results in a surgical consult. Drugs and surgery are to two most common forms of treatment in America, and we as Americans don’t realize that other countries do not follow this approach.

Once a patient has a surgical consult, they are usually left with limited options and surgery is at the top of the list. There has to be a better way.

Utilizing natural healthcare as a conservative approach to chronic problems is in my opinion the best approach. Many times, neck pain results from fixated joints and joint dysfunction within the facet joints in the spine. Once these restricted joints are mobilized, patients usually see an increase in range of motion, decrease in pain, decrease in swelling and overall a sense of relief. Other symptoms such as headaches, muscle tension and stress start to diminish as well.


Traditional approach to neck pain:

  • Muscle relaxers
  • Painkillers
  • NSAIDs
  • Spinal injections

The natural approach to neck pain in portland or:

  • Chiropractic: chiropractic care utilizes light forces to mobilize fixated joints. By mobilizing a stuck joint, the doctor is able to restore normal range of motion and decrease pain associated with joint irritation. Chiropractic has been around for over 100 years and is utilized by millions each year.
  • Rehab: with a successful chiropractic treatment plan, homecare and a doctors treatment plan for rehab is necessary to restore to near normal function and to avoid future injuries and reaggravation.
  • Interferential current (IFC): electrical modalities are utilized to decrease swelling and decrease inflammation in effective joints to get optimal results with chiropractic and massage and rehab.

A common question by patients is regarding the frequency of care for chiropractic?

How often do I need to come in?

This varies from case to case. We have some patients that have an acute injury that may only need a few visits. We have some patients that have had chronic pain for years, headaches for months and they may need to come in 2 to 3 times a week for 5 to 6 weeks to handle their condition and then we able to tapper their care plan to 1x per week and eventually to 1x per month.

After a thorough evaluation, the doctor would determine the best approach and the best modalities for optimal outcomes. You do not need to suffer with daily pain.

Outcomes to measure:

  • Range of motion

  • Palpation
