We provide spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As doctors who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, our chiropractors have years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
The intent of acupuncture is to promote health and alleviate pain and suffering. The perspective from which an acupuncturist views health and sickness hinges on concepts of "vital energy," "energetic balance" and "energetic imbalance." Just as a western medical doctor monitors the blood flowing through blood vessels and the messages traveling via the nervous system, the acupuncturist assesses the flow and distribution of this "vital energy" within its pathways, known as "meridians and channels".
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
At Pure Life Clinic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractors will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
At Pure Life Clinic, we recognize the body’s need for balance. We also believe in empowering our patients to take their health into their own hands. These two principles were driving factors in the development of our exercise therapy program.
Through exercise therapy, we will assess your body to determine which areas need to be stretched and which areas need to be strengthened. We will diagnose any posture or balance issues and assess your physical endurance. After a thorough evaluation we will provide you with an individual plan that will meet your specific needs.
All of our exercises can be performed with minimal or no equipment, which makes developing your home routine a reality. If you are looking for more than “a quick fix”, exercise therapy is definitely right for you.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractors to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our doctors will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
Nutritional Counseling focuses on balancing the dietary needs of an individual. Just as no one shoe size fits everyone, no single diet works for everyone. We are all unique biochemical individuals.
The first step in our nutritional counseling is a one hour consultation in which you learn some nutrition basics and we look at your current symptoms and health goals. One week later we move on to a 90 minute evaluation session. In an evaluation session we take an extensive look at current lifestyle and habits. By using a thorough assessment to determine organ and system function, we formulate a clear picture of what your body is lacking, preventing you from reaching optimal health. From this first full session, you will have a comprehensive plan designed just for you and you will be well on your way to regain your health. Additionally, monthly follow up sessions will focus on adjusting your program as needed and tracking your progress. Together, we will continue to work until we have reached your health goals!
Spinal & Postural Screenings
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by our trained and experienced chiropractors can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Portland community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 503-288-4454 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
