Bridgetown Chiropractic and Wellness

Bridgetown Chiropractic's philosophy is grounded in a whole body approach to health and wellness. As Portland residents and graduates of Western States Chiropractic College, the doctors combine their chiropractic experience with a nutritional and exercise-based sensibility that results in treatments that are targeted, effective and tailored to each patient.

The doctors also provide a tremendous level of personal customer service to all of their patients. At Bridgetown Chiropractic and Wellness, the patient comes first and the doctors are always available. Even first time patients can call and speak with one of the doctors, and we are usually able to schedule appointments for the same or very next day.
