We help you live comfortably and actively as you’re meant to.

Many people know of the relationship between back pain and chiropractic services. Back discomfort is one of the most common reasons to work with a chiropractor. That’s because chiropractors are experienced in the workings of the spine and neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes the soft tissues, peripheral nerves, fascia and joints. 

Our Portland chiropractic clinic has multiple solutions to help end back pain at the source. Using natural, effective treatments, including adjustments, acupuncture, massage therapy, and many others, we can treat back conditions and injuries causing back pain of all severities. 

Comprehensive care is an integral part of your healthy healing and recovery. We never rely on a one-size-fits-all approach or pain medication but instead, focus on the body as a whole to ensure every structure is working and functioning as it’s meant to. 

No matter how active you are, pressures are constantly placed upon the spine and the back’s soft tissues. Whether your back pain is due to a decades-old sports injury, your pregnancy, or sitting at your computer all day, we’re confident our team can improve your comfort and get you moving safely once again.

Don’t let one more day go by filled with back pain, forcing you to miss out on events or activities. Not when effective, non-invasive chiropractic care is at your fingertips. 

Understanding Why You Have Back Pain

Do you ever ask yourself, “Why does my back hurt?” 

Our backs house the spine and numerous muscle groups, nerves, ligaments, and other soft tissues. Most of us depend on its function for more daily movements than we can count. From stability and balance to mobility, the back plays an essential role in everything from making the bed to lifting weights. 

A healthy spine allows us range and flexibility, connects portions of the neuromusculoskeletal system, and is the body’s central support, nurturing many of our most basic movements, such as sitting, standing, turning, walking, bending, and others. 

When the back or spine becomes impaired, many issues may arise, and all areas of life can be affected. So, finding and treating the injury is paramount to our overall well-being. 

You may have back discomfort for countless reasons, ranging from a poorly designed workstation to a car accident. 

Some common conditions that cause back pain include:

  • Herniated discs, such as a lumbar herniation (lower back) or cervical herniation (neck)
  • Sciatica 
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Neurological dysfunction 
  • Sprains, strains, or inflammation
  • Bruising of muscles or pulled muscles
  • Spine compression
  • Arthritis  
  • Habitual poor posture, movement patterns, or lifting techniques
  • Untreated or improperly treated spinal injury
  • And more

These conditions and imbalances may be due to any of the following:

  • Poor posture or ergonomics
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Regularly sitting or standing for long periods 
  • Working all day on a computer or device
  • Labor-intensive job
  • Poor sleep position 
  • Poor workstation setup
  • Continuously moving and lifting heavy items 
  • Improperly moving and lifting items
  • A traumatic event such as an auto accident or slip and fall
  • Repetition of muscle and joint use, often due to sports, activities, or work
  • Regular athletics, sports, or other physical activities 

Let us help you find a safe, non-invasive remedy to your back pain and help your body relearn how to properly support itself so you can enjoy your life in comfort.

What Our Patients Have to Say

“I left my appointment with Dr Allie Dashiell with my back feeling better than it had in a long time.”

“Dr. Allie is amazing! I just had my first chiropractic appointment with her and am already feeling so much better (I was having low back and neck pain). She helped explain everything that was happening in my body, and her adjustments were so helpful. She also gave me exercises to do at home to help.”

“I have been coming to neighborhood chiropractic for about three or four years now. I always leave feeling great. Dr. Allie has helped relieve my headaches and persistent lower back pain by identifying the root of my problem. Plus they always find a way to squeeze me in last minute when my back is out. I highly recommend Dr. Allie.”

“Dr. Allie provided very capable and knowledgeable help when I had lower back pain and again when I injured my neck. The exercises she taught me to do at home if I start to sense any tension have kept me from injuring myself again. Thanks!”
