Gentle Chiropractic Care


We offer specific gentle chiropractic care at Portland Pro Health.

The focus of these gentle adjustments is the function and integrity of the nervous system, especially the spinal cord and brain. The purpose is to help each person gain new strategies for adapting to life and all its challenges, while also enjoying higher levels of health, wellness, and quality of life. We use the least amount of force necessary to achieve the desired outcomes.

Some of the unique features of this gentle chiropractic care include:

  • Non-manipulative adjustment: This is especially appealing to people who want to experience the benefits of chiropractic but are afraid or unwilling to have their neck  and back "cracked".
  • Corrections don’t stop when you get off the table, but actually improve with your body’s movements and breathing.
  • Your body continues to make more corrections and healing with ongoing care.
  • Because analysis and correction are not limited to just the area of pain and symptom, results tend to be more complete, and healing experiences are deeper in all areas of the body, mind and emotions.

The primary intent of this work is to progressively reduce tension and blockages in the entire cranial and spinal systems.

By releasing trapped unresolved patterns in the body, we are encouraging a greater expression of a person's healing and performance capabilities.

This type of gentle chiropractic adjustment is a perfect pairing with Bio Cranial Therapy, which also targets the brain and spinal cord specifically, although differently and at a much deeper level.

Because we are getting to the “problem behind the problem” by working with deep control centers in the body, people usually require a fraction of the adjustments they would need if they were seeing more traditional practitioners.


Kids Love Chiropractic

The Chiropractic care that we provide is an effective and affordable program that addresses children's health conditions associated with the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Gentle, noninvasive and drug-free, chiropractic adjustments help and prevent a wide range of health problems. Recent research by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) found spinal manipulative therapy safe and successful in caring for children of all ages.

Chiropractic Care and Acute Conditions in Children

Acute conditions may result from birth trauma, sports mishaps and accidental injury. Chiropractic care benefits children by correcting the spinal alignment to improve their overall health. When vertebral joints are misaligned during birth or from a blow or fall, muscle tissue and nerves may also be affected. Spinal adjustment frees joints, restores motion and relieves nerve pressure, which may be the cause of additional ailments. Parents report successful care initiatives of children's health issues such as acute earache, upper respiratory infection, muscle pain, neck pain and accident trauma.


Chiropractic Care and Chronic Conditions in Children

Chiropractic America reports that natural, drug-free chiropractic care is sometimes more effective than traditional medical approaches for chronic earache, scoliosis, and neck pain. Headaches and sleep disorders of nonspecific causes respond well to spinal adjustments, which affect and repair interrupted neural pathways. Asthma, allergy symptoms, and patterns of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may also be improved with chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Care and Prevention of Ailments

Periodic ongoing adjustments at a young age may help stave off the above ailments before they begin. Proper spinal alignment now may delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition to maintaining children's health, regular visits to our office will help instill the value of proactive health care in kids. They'll be more likely to monitor and manage their health as they grow up and less likely to be afraid or in denial of any health problems. Encouraging good lifelong health habits is one of chiropractic's best benefits for kids.
