2 simple tips to prevent lower back pain

Although many treatment options are available for patients with lower back pain, it is much better to prevent the problem. One provider explains how to do it.

How often should I get a chiropractic adjustment?

The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to improve the structural alignment and physical function of your body. How often you should get an adjustment depends on your individual condition and pain level.

Back pain? Before turning to surgery, discuss options with your doctor

Back surgery isn’t meant for everyone with back pain. Discuss with your orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon whether doing nothing at all, physical therapy or chiropractic care might be better for you.

Portland Alternative Medicines Reviews

"I have had chronic neck/back problems most of my life. I tried several other chiropractors but none of them provided me with any relief or answers. My life changed when I was referred to Dr.
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
almost 20 years ago. He is a gifted healer with an ability to troubleshoot and treat complicated chronic issues. He is a great listener, communicates very well with his patients, and is extraordinarily skilled at his craft. Yes, the wait is a bit over the top, but I usually call ahead to check on the wait status before heading out and that cuts my wait time in half. I hope he never retires."

"I went to Dr.

was unable to complete a treatment successfully on a dislocated bone in my foot. I was skeptical of chiropractors, but Dr.

was just wonderful. She is extremely competent, and I felt - most importantly - safe in her hands. I walked out (nearly skipping) and felt better than I had in my life - she also gave my back and neck an adjustment.

is great as the office manager also. Good vibes in that office overall!
I actually look forward to going back. How crazy is that?!?

"I had a head and neck injury for which I receive chiropractic care and massage therapy. The Chiropractor listens well and is very thorough in her exams and communicates well what her treatment is going to be before she does it. The Massage Therapist communicates well with the Chiropractor and does a good job. I have an intergraded treatment plan which I like."

"After a long weekend of moving and hooking up electronics, I woke up to very stiff screaming muscles in my lower abs and back. I tried my morning exercises in hopes that a little stretching would iron it out. In the middle of my stretches, I felt a twinge and was suddenly unable to stand up straight. I was instantly afraid of the seriousness of the injury and worried I might need to have surgery.

I had heard about
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
from a co-worker, but had never tried them. I called and they gave me an appointment the same day. The clinic is associated with the Chiropractic college, so students work on you with teacher or professional supervision. The head doctor in my care was
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
and she is a very experienced physician. She and the students were excellent and my care was first class. They gave me exercises and adjusted me several different times. It took 3-4 weeks for me to be completely over the injury, but they really took care of me. They evaluate overall health and wellness as well as adjusting your spine. I have continued to go back every 2-3 weeks since. The big bonus to this place is that they charge on a sliding scale. I am currently unemployed and due to the sliding scale I pay just $20.00 per visit for top-notch personal care. I love this place.

is the first chiropractor I've gone to.
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
did a good initial consulation. I went in 3 times total. Each time the session started with massage which was great. I wish the massage lasted longer as it was only 10-15 minutes. The massage therapist seemed very knowledgable about the muscles of the upper back and neck and was very effective. The chiropractic treatment was fine, but I don't know if it, or the massage was most effective. My husband read some articles saying that chiropractic adjustment of the neck was risky, so the 3rd time I went in I asked
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
about this issue. She was nice, but did seem a little put off by the question. She agreed to only do adjustments on my back (not my neck) but then didn't schedule another appointment for me. Overall I think I was helped by the treatments and would go back. But I'm not sure if they want me as a patient as I asked questions about safety.

"I was initially a little scared to try a chiropractor but Dr.
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
put me at ease. Every appointment is a pleasure--the staff is very personable and I've had no issues with insurance billing. Best of all, my back feels great!!! Could not recommend any more highly."
A
"He has a great sense of humor and is very effective! He is only $35.00 a visit if you do not have insurance, except for the first visit because there is a comprehensive exam that he gives you, as well. That price depends on a flip of a coin. We are more than happy with him. He also offers coupons for your birthday."

"He is excellent in his field. He gives what I need and doesn't try to oversell. He is very good at

what body needs. I recommend him highly for chiropractic care. I will use him again in the future."

"This visit, as all with Dr. Chaser, went extremely well. I was directed to a private room and was told the doctor would see me shortly. Within a couple minutes, while I listened to soothing music, Dr Chaser entered and began assessing my needs. Through a personable and friendly interview, as well as
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
tests for range of motion and flexibility, Dr. Chaser concluded what my treatment options were. Before the actual chiropractic treatment I was set up with muscle stimulation and heat, to better prepare for the treatment. I was left alone for the cycle of muscle-stim, which is great because it allowed me to relax my tensed and tired muscles. Then Dr. Chaser applied the various manipulations to start to correct the problem, knowing that it wouldn't be an instant fix, but an ongoing process. At the end I was reassessed for range of motion, which improved, was given some suggestions for stretching and relaxation to compliment the treatment, and went on my way. In the end I felt much, much better, and the exercises he suggested have helped to relieve this problem.
Very good experience.

"I had a horrible back problem and I thought it was an old problem flaring up so I got in to see her as quickly as I could. My internist ordered an MRI and it was much worse than what I had before. I only had a 35-40%

of getting through that without surgery but Dr.
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
did. She is a complete miracle worker. My orders from my internist and spine doctor were to see her immediately if I had any problems. I had a problem getting in to see my spine specialist so he didn’t even know that this was going on. I got my problem with Medicare straightened out but in the meantime my chiropractor had the entire
Portland Alternative Medicines Provider Name Locked
of my problem. What she did is exactly what he would have wanted her to do. She got me from a level 10 pain to a 0 and she completely fixed the problem; that is unheard of. Her office staff is also amazing. They are efficient and just really good. I recommend her all the time.
