Healthcare in the Kenton and North Portland Area
Dr. Glenda Culbertson DC,LAc
Chiropractic and Acupuncture
Your overall health begins with optimal spine health. When your spine is healthy, the whole body can be healthy. Dr.Culbertson has been a dedicated alternative care practioner of the Kenton neighborhood since 2012 and in the North Portland area since 2010. She has been helping patients since 2006 as a chiropractor and more recently has added acupuncture to her offerings.
Dr. Culbertson specializes in providing treatments that combine chiropractic and acupuncture in the same visit to optimize your healing. This combination is great for most patients and is perhaps especially so for the complex nature of cases involving motor vehicle collisions.
Dr. Culbertson became passionate about alternative medicine
after suffering injuries as a national level triathlete that she was unable to
heal with allopathic medicine. Alternative
medicine offered her a comprehensive approach to care that supported addressing
root musculoskeletal imbalances rather than masking symptoms.
Chiropractic medicine excels at addressing
spinal dysfunctions and Chinese Medicine supports that process while also being
able to support healing in a broad spectrum of other complaints. For instance, Chinese Medicine offers
treatment options for digestive problems, asthma, insomnia, fibromyalgia, sinusitis, traumatic injuries, and
many other disease patterns.
Dr. Culbertson has a reputation for being a conscientious
and gentle chiropractor. She does
utilize diversified manipulation, but can also offer lower force techniques
when that is more appropriate. Her
style of needling is similar in that she will work with you to find a needling
intensity that is suitable for you.
Patients of Dr. Culbertson have the option of doing
chiropractic or acupuncture independently or they can combine the two
modalities into one visit.
Dr. Culbertson is in-network with many insurance plans. Please call your insurance company to verify your chiropractic and acupuncture coverage with Dr. Culbertson.
Dr. Culbertson accepts patients who have been involved with work injuries. If you have a workman's compensation claim open, you may see her for treatment. She also works with patients who have sustained injuries in Motor Vehicle accidents. The combination of utilizing chiropractic and acupuncture at the same visit can speed healing and save you time going to multiple visits with multiple practitioners.
Under Oregon Law, victims
of motor vehicle accidents can see a chiropractor without a referral. After intake and evaluation, Dr. Culbertson can help determine if chiropractic and/or acupuncture would be best for your injuries. Additionally, there are several massage therapists and a physical therapist on-site, who can work with Dr. Culbertson in the management of your case.
