Chiropractic medicine is used to treat many conditions. Our chiropractor, Dr. Jerrod Puckett, has advanced training to work with athletes for sports medicine related injuries. Here are three of the most common complaints that we see in our Portland chiropractic clinic.
Low Back Pain:
Low back pain is probably the most common complaint in the chiropractic clinic. Low back pain can be caused by muscle tension, joint dysfunction, herniated discs or any number of other issues. Our great chiropractic care can carefully differentiate the cause of your pain and treat in the most effective way for best results.
Headaches vary from mild tension headaches to debilitating migraines. All of these types of headaches can have a significant impact on our quality of life, making work and family life difficult. Our Portland chiropractor can help relieve the pain by carefully restoring proper alignment to the neck and spine. With a gentle adjustment and proper maintenance your headaches may become a thing of the past.
Shoulder pain is another common complaint that we see here in Portland. While acupuncture can often address many of the muscle and tendon issues of the shoulder it’s important to remember that shoulder pain can be referred pain from spinal misalignments or actual misalignment of the shoulder. Our Portland chiropractor will help you relieve both the pain and any range of motion issues that are present.
