chiropractor redmond oregonPractitioners:  David Otto, Payson Flattery
At the Center for Integrative Medicine, we take a comprehensive approach to chiropractic adjustment for chronic pain. Our Bend chiropractic physicians, Payson Flattery, DC, ND, DAAPM, and David Otto, DC, incorporate a variety of treatments into their practice, including Active Release Technique, the Graston Technique, or instrument-assisted soft tissue release (IASTM); low-level laser, spinal decompression,  and microcurrent. Drs. Flattery and Otto work closely with our physical therapists to help patients experience pain relief, greater range of motion, and improved function as quickly as possible.

We believe chiropractic adjustment should be delivered with the lowest amount of force necessary to achieve the end goals of increased mobility and function. The myofascial release techniques we practice in addition to chiropractic support that philosophy and lead to faster recovery, decreasing the chances of re-injury.

If chiropractic adjustment and physical therapy are only bringing you temporary relief from pain, you may already have laxity in the affected ligaments or tendons. Ligaments and tendons are the primary joint stabilizers. If they have become lax and can no longer hold the joint stable, the surrounding muscles will continually tighten up in an attempt to stabilize the joint, causing you ongoing pain. In that situation, you have two options: stabilize the joint by strengthening the surrounding muscles, or treat the cause of the problem with prolotherapy or platelet rich plasma injection. Fortunately, the Center for Integrative Medicine’s Bend chiropractors can help you with each of those options.
