New Patients

Family in the parkWelcome to Portland Chiropractic! Our friendly and upbeat environment is the ideal place to begin your healing journey. We understand that you may be coming in with pain so we always will be compassionate and caring. Rest assured that we will always put your needs first.

The First Visit

You can find the necessary paperwork on our website. To save time, we encourage you to download it and bring it in completed. You’ll then meet with Dr. McArthur or Dr. Grant Smith to have a consultation, which includes reviewing your history. We’ll take digital X-rays if necessary.

When appropriate, we’ll provide a treatment to alleviate the symptoms to get you comfortable as quickly as possible. You may or may not receive a chiropractic adjustment at this first appointment. If, for example, you were adjusted the month before your chiropractor will adjust you on this visit.

On the other hand, if you haven’t been adjusted previously, and are rating your level of pain as a 10/10, then we will provide you with some relief. We may recommend that you see our massage therapist and then we can give you some muscle stim and have you return.

Please allow up to 40 minutes for this initial appointment.

The Second Visit

When you return for your second appointment, you and your chiropractor will meet for a report of findings where we‘ll explain and show you why you’re experiencing symptoms and discomfort.

This appointment is an excellent time for us to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your problem or chiropractic care. We’ll take our time explaining everything so that you’re comfortable and know exactly why you’re having pain and how it can be addressed.

Regular Visits

On your regular visits to see us, you will be seen promptly as we have a no wait office policy. A typical visit to our practice includes filling us in on your symptoms and progress. Then, we’ll provide you with care based on your needs.

Do I Have to Go for the Rest of My Life?

It depends on what your body requires. We don’t want anyone to come in any more than they need to or any less than they need to.

Experience how fantastic you can feel with safe and natural chiropractic care. Contact our Portland practice today to book a convenient appointment!
