Our chiropractic doctors are very experienced and skilled when it comes to restoring spine health and joint function. If you are suffering from lingering back, neck or shoulder pain, or if you are having issues with pinched nerves, our chiropractic adjustments can treat the source of the problem and provide you with long-lasting pain relief.
The spine is a very important and complicated structure. It allows for movement while simultaneously providing protection to the nerves that run up and down your back. When there is a problem with your spinal alignment, it can impact your nerve function. A vertebra that is slightly out of position can put pressure on the nerves in your spinal cord. When a nerve is pinched or compressed, its ability to communicate with your organs and cells is impaired. If sufficiently pinched, it can have a negative impact on your body’s ability to function optimally. Pinched nerves can happen anywhere on the body, but they are most frequently found in the back or neck. Twisting your body awkwardly, suffering a back injury or exhibiting poor posture can all lead to pinched nerves. A common treatment option for a pinched nerve is to take pain medication and to hope that the pain subsides. This does not treat the pinched nerve itself, but only masks the symptoms. With a chiropractic adjustment we can correct spinal subluxations and ease the inflammation that is pinching your nerve and causing you discomfort. There is no more effective way to treat a pinched nerve than quality chiropractic care.

Our Portland chiropractors are licensed professionals who can quickly find the issue and fix it at the source. We offer free consultations that can help you decide if our treatment is right for you.
