Chiropractic Adjustment for Lower Back Pain in Gresham
If you are seeking effective low back pain relief in Gresham, our highly experienced chiropractor can help. Dr. Bradley Craig will evaluate your lower back pain to determine the cause of our pain. Then he will perform manual chiropractic adjustments, forceful thrusts to adjust the vertebrae in your lower back, so they are in better alignment. When the vertebrae are straight, nerve pressure is eliminated which lessens your lower back pain. This is especially helpful in conditions such as sciatica in which the sciatic nerve is being compressed. Manual adjustments of the vertebrae also reduce pain from herniated discs.
Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain & Stiffness
Lower back pain can cause the following symptoms; muscle spasms, difficulty moving and even pain just above the knee. Through chiropractic care, we can treat back pain through spinal manipulation (high-velocity low-amplitude thrust) and spinal mobilization (low-force treatment). Lower back adjustments can bring you immediate and lasting pain relief. Whether you are struggling with pain from a spinal abnormality, an injury, a herniated disc or sciatica, we can help.

Chronic pain, pain lasting longer than 3-6 months, affects more than 100 million Americans, according to a report by the Institute of Medicine. Many people living with chronic pain can find relief with the help of a qualified Reiki practitioner. Reiki is a gentle technique that promotes healing through deep relaxation, stress reduction, and opening the flow of energy through the body. Energy can become depleted or blocked from the everyday stresses of life or trauma. Over time, blocked energy can present itself in the form of chronic pain, also described as aching, stiffness, tightness, aching, and discomfort. During a Reiki treatment muscles are relaxed, and energy flow is unblocked, which helps reduce physical tension and chronic pain.
Chronic pain can also be associated with emotional distress and lack of balance. Reiki can resolve chronic pain by allowing healing energy to flow freely. The result is reduced pain and tension, as well as feelings of relaxation and rejuvenation. Unlike most other treatments, Reiki is a multi-purposed method that can heal both physical and emotional ailments.

What is Reiki
Reiki is a healing technique that promotes healing and reduces stress by using touch to channel energies in your body. Although Reiki was first started in Japan, it also incorporates wisdom from the Hindu tradition. One of the concepts that Reiki has incorporated are the 7 chakras. Chakras are energy centers distributed throughout the body and each chakra is responsible for different aspects of wellness.
Reiki is a gentle technique that promotes healing through deep relaxation, stress reduction, and opening and enriching the flow of energy through the body. Your energy can become depleted or blocked from the everyday stresses of life or trauma. When you experience sensations of tightness and discomfort in specific regions of the body, this is a sign of blocked energy. Over time, blocked energy can present itself in the form of anxiety and/or depression.
Reiki is a great resource for relieving stress related to anxiety and depression. Emotional exhaustion, fatigue, feeling overwhelmed, and experiencing sleeping problems can all be the result of stress accumulated in the body. During a Reiki session muscles are relaxed and blocked energy is released, helping to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Anyone suffering from pain due to a car accident can find relief from pain with the help of chiropractic care. Whether your injury stems from the impact of a major collision or a fender bender, the resulting injury can leave you unable to work, spend quality time with your friends and family, or participate in your normal everyday activities. Not every accident results in injury, but there are plenty that do, and those who have suffered from injuries are highly recommended to seek an experienced chiropractor.
Chiropractic care is necessary for maintaining the health of a spine that has been through trauma and to relieve pain.

Aging is a real pain in the neck...literally! Growing older can do quite a number on the mobility of your joints, but there are many effective treatments for age-related aches and pains, chiropractic care chief among them.
Aging causes general degeneration of joints in the spine, which triggers back pain. There is also a link between aging and problems with coordination and balance. This is largely due to the degeneration of structures known as mechanoreceptors. Located in the spine, mechanoreceptors play an important role in balance and coordination. Mechanoreceptors become impaired with time, and as they degrade, coordination and balance problems can arise. These common issues are experienced by more and more of the elderly population in the Portland and Gresham area every year.
Chiropractic care can aid seniors by increasing mobility in the spine and limbs. Proper chiropractic adjustment means the enjoyment of activities without the pain and discomfort associated with spinal misalignment. Additionally, through regular chiropractic care, problems associated with mechanoreceptor degradation can be repaired.

During a chiropractic adjustment you’re likely to hear your joints make a “crack” or “pop” sound which is the release of gas, specifically the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. This audible release of gas, also known as joint cavitation, is what releases the pressure in your joints. When pressure builds up it can create subluxations which jams up the communications channels of your nervous system. After the pressure built up in your joints is released your body enters a healing process and it tries to re-align itself to achieve a state of homeostasis. Basically, a chiropractic adjustment helps remove blockades so that your body can do its job!
Why Is Water Important After My Chiropractic Adjustment?
Once your body is properly aligned and tension is released then your body more capable of letting go of any toxic buildup caused by the blockade of tension. Drinking water helps flush out these toxins and reduce the severity of any unpleasant side effects from the adjustment. Keeping yourself hydrated in general is important for proper digestive and kidney function and removing toxins and waste you’re your body.

Nutrition Response Testing is a tried and true method of finding nutritional deficiencies in the body.
It is important to understand what Nutrition Response Testing is and appreciate how it works for it to be a successful part of your holistic healthcare plan. Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through with the actions needed to get well. You are more likely to experience the benefits you seek if you can commit to following through with the findings of your Nutrition Response Testing.
So What Is It Really?
Imagine a person standing in front of you who appears to be under no visible stress. Put a little pressure with your hand on their stressed-out heart while pushing on their outstretched arm and the arm will go weak. Why, because her body knows that it is more important to save her heart than her arm!
The body has the potential to fully repair anything for itself, given the right nutrients and care.
Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the root cause of ill health. It uses muscle strength testing to communicate with the body’s own innate intelligence to evaluate the body’s response to a broad variety of substances that may be affecting health and function. Analysis involves testing organs, glands, joints, muscles, etc., to determine your body’s neurological reflexes. These reflexes are the body’s way of telling us what and how the nervous system is doing.
The body responds to these procedures reliably and consistently. This feedback is so precise that it opens the door to a safe and lasting recovery, even in cases where everything else has failed.

Holistic health is a word that reminds us that we often separate health in three categories; physical health, mental health, and spiritual health. When we see health in these separate categories we are already forgetting the holistic picture. Healing wisdom teaches us that personal health is one thing. Holistic health encompasses all health.
Then what is holistic healing? Healing has many definitions, but the simplest one is working towards a balanced state. When all of your body, thoughts, and actions are in balance you are in a healthy state. Holistic healing looks at the big picture and works toward that balance.
Energy medicine, also known as energy therapy, energy healing, or spiritual healing, can come in many forms. Some energy medicine is hands-off like most Reiki healing. Other forms of energy medicine are hands-on like massage therapy. Some forms of energy medicine can be done distantly.
