Need a chiropractor in NE Portland?
We are here for you. Are you frustrated with being told that you should just quit doing what you love because of an injury? Chances are, you won’t hear that from us. As your chiropractor in NE Portland, we value your quality of life and we know that it just wouldn’t be the same without that special activity. At Flex Chiropractic + Movement Lab, our goal is to get you back to doing what you love, faster. We have a “bigger picture” approach, which means that we will not only treat the injured area, but also any imbalances that may have lead up to injury or that were caused by the injury. We also like to take a stance on injury prevention so that you don’t have to take a time out. From climbing to throwing to crawling on the ground, we can help you do what you love.
What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic care is more than snaps, crackles, and pops! Spinal manipulation (aka adjusting) is a safe and effective treatment for neck and back pain without the use of pharmaceutical drugs, allowing the body to utilize its natural healing processes. By addressing the root of the problem and not just attacking symptoms, chiropractic care can reduce the risk of unnecessary surgery and drug use. Chiropractic is great for disc herniations, headaches, neck and back pain, whiplash injuries, and more!
Chiropractic care doesn’t just stop at spinal care! Chiropractors can adjust almost any bone in the body, including those in your shoulders, knees, hips, feet, and wrists! In fact, chiropractic has been shown to be effective for carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, iliotibial band syndrome (ITB syndrome), and more.
