List of Services:
Physical, Orthopedic and Neurological Examination:
Dr Watson has completed over 1000 hours of professional education
in examination of the human body, and continues to stay current with
the ever changing field of healthcare by attending various seminars,
conferences, and classes. He believes in spending as much time as
necessary to arrive at the correct diagnosis. Generally the first
visit to the office is a half an hour, although every patient has
different needs and sometimes the first visit may last last longer. On
occasion Dr. Watson may reschedule you for further evaluation or refer
you for tests outside our facility (blood tests, X-ray, MRI, CT scan, Bone
Scan, etc.) or refer you to another specialty doctor (Neurologist,
Orthopedist, Cardiologist, etc).
Chiropractors receive an incredible, in-depth, education in
radiology (the study of X-ray) because it is a tool that is utilized
very often in a chiropractors office.
Dr. Watson uses a highly sensitive instrument called a Thermo Scope
that measures heat along the the spine. Increased areas of heat are
indicative of inflammation and irritation along the spine.
Spinal and Extremity Adjusting:
Dr. Watson uses only the precise
amount of gentle force necessary to facilitate a change towards
improved function. Dr. Watson is well versed in the care of the spine
and the extremities (shoulders, arms, hands, hips, legs, and feet) as he is a
sports enthusiast and has treated many athletes from amateur to
Olympic level and has even had an Olympic gold medallist as a patient.
He is very active with sports teams. He has worked with several hockey
teams and has been the tournament physician for the Oregon State
Ta-Kwon-Do tournament at Portland State University. He has worked with
the Oregon Ballet Theatre as well.
Nutritional evaluation and recommendations:
In most cases a patient needs proper nutrients to restore health. A
patient may have a lack of sulfate in the body causing a loss joint
and ligament health or It could be a lack of riboflavin causing
numbness, tingling, or a lack of energy. Nutrient deficiencies a vary
from patient to patient. I recommend supplementation to all my
patients, whether it be a general multi to a specific glandular
product to support the liver function. I will evaluate you to
determine what nutritional support will aid in your return to health.
Maintenance spinal care:
Regular care over a lifetime is prevention. Spinal misalignments
can cause degeneration and dysfunction without ever giving you an
alarm of pain. With regular care you are afforded the best assurance
possible in keeping your spinal column fit and free of misalignment.
In doing so you increase overall physical, mental, and emotional
performance and feel more connected in general. I recommend
maintenance spinal care once per week to once per month depending on
your lifestyle. Less often and your at risk for spinal degeneration
