Naturopathic Physical Therapy Q & A

What is naturopathic physical therapy and spinal alignment?

Naturopathic physical therapy is a branch of holistic medicine that works to promote proper musculoskeletal alignment through naturopathic spine adjustments and other hands-on specialty adjustment techniques. 

At the Portland Clinic of Holistic Health, the team specializes in this type of treatment. In fact,  Eric Blake ND, Dipl. Ac., is a co-editor of the textbook Naturopathic Physical Medicine and is an authority in the field of naturopathic physical medicine. 

What issues can naturopathic physical therapy and spinal alignment treat?

At the Portland Clinic of Holistic Health, the team regularly uses naturopathic physical therapy to treat:

  • Scoliosis
  • Trauma
  • Acute and Chronic pain
  • Spinal Mis-alignment
  • Hip, Shoulder, and Foot Mis-alignment
  • Sinusitis
  • Ear infections
  • Lazy eyes
  • Hiatal hernias
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Joint injuries

The team also uses naturopathic physical therapy and spinal alignment to assist athletes who are recovering from sports-related injuries, as well as people involved in automobile accidents. 

How does naturopathic physical therapy work?

Naturopathic physical therapy works to realign your spine and improve your posture. Your spinal column consists of stacked bones called vertebrae. 

These vertebrae rotate and move with one another whenever you twist, turn, or bend. Over time, general wear-and-tear can restrict the movement of certain spinal segments. 

Naturopathic physical therapy restores the movement in your vertebrae with gentle naturopathic readjustments of your spine.

The process is similar for joint injuries and problems like sinusitis. During treatment, your doctor carefully manipulates the affected joint or the bones in the skull to encourage proper alignment and to promote healing. 

Does naturopathic physical therapy hurt?

Naturopathic physical therapy is safe and well-tolerated. Most patients remark how comfortable and painless the adjustments and maneuvers are compared to other treatments they have had. 

How many naturopathic physical therapy treatment sessions will I need?

No two naturopathic physical therapy treatment plans are exactly alike. The team develops a plan based on your current health, the nature of your discomfort, your medical history, and your goals for treatment. To achieve the best possible results, it’s important to attend all of your treatment sessions.
