Welcome to Aspire Chiropractic & Massage located in Gresham.  Chiropractic is an awesome tool for your healthcare, but very few people know what its all about.  

What is Chiropractic?  Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of conditions, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.

How can chiropractic help you?  Chiropractic is often thought of as something only for back pain.  It can be used for many physical conditions including, sprains/strains, headaches, extremity issues, carpal tunnel, and so much more.  What ever the issue the goal of chiropractic is to reduce stress on that area so you can get back to feeling healthy.

Whats the history of chiropractic?  Back in 1895 an individual named DD Palmer began studying how the spine and nervous system effects our health.  One of his first patient's was Harvey Lillard a janitor who complained to DD that he was partially deaf.  DD performed an adjustment to the neck of Harvey who later reported an improvement to his hearing.  Within two years Dr. Palmer opened a chiropractic college and now over 100 years later chiropractors continue to adjust spines to help with a wide variety of physical ailments.

How much education is required to become a chiropractor?  The doctorate of chiropractic is achieved after 4 rigorous years of schooling at an accredited chiropractic college.  Students are taught in basic sciences and anatomy followed by countless hours of specific health curriculum and adjusting courses.  Their schooling is completed after 4,200 hours in the classroom and 1,000 hours in a outpatient clinic supervised by a clinician who is a doctor of chiropractic.
