Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "The best! I've been a patient since '96 and I love the care i get here. Top notch massages, top notch chiropractic treatments. I've needed additional help with sports injuries and Dr. King has been an amazing help for restoring injuries. When I needed nexk surgery from a skiing accident, she recommended the perfect surgeon for me. All in all, King Chiropractic is an essential part of my self care. Highly recommended..."

  • "I found King Chiropractic through my insurance and I am super impressed with Dr. King and the massage therapists. The clinic is warm and friendly, the service is professional and they are very customer oriented. The girls at the front desk are efficient and you can tell the office is run very well. I highly recommend King Chiropractic for massage, chiropractic and health & wellness services."
    Larisa K.
  • "While working in my back yard building a fence, I hurt my lower back. I went in to see Dr. King, and after about five visits I felt absolutely perfect. Most importantly, the experience at the clinic was nice and something I looked forward to doing day of."
  • "While training for a race I pulled a hamstring really bad. I didn't think I'd be able to run the race that was just 8 weeks away. With treatment at King Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. King and her staff were able to get me well enough to run and finish the Hood to Coast race!"
  • "My car was rear-ended and slammed me into the vehicle in front of me. I came to see Dr. King after two accidents over the past few years, and through her prescribed therapy I was able to get back to where I was prior to the accidents. Chiropractic care relieved my lower and upper back pain, as well as my neck pain after the accident. She and her staff are great!"
  • ""I had extreme pain in my right shoulder and numbness in my right arm. My regular medical doctor diagnosed me with a herniated disc in my neck (after an MRI) with recommended surgery. They gave me vicodin and then morphine for the pain. I started seeing Dr. King for relief of pain. Her treatment took the "knife" out of my shoulder immediately and over the next several weeks brought me back to normal. NO surgery needed! Medical doctor gave me drugs for the pain but Dr. King TREATED the pain."
  • "I was never a runner. This year I decided to run the Portland Marathon. During my training I continued to see Dr. King for maintenance care. One weekend on a run I tweaked my lower back and thought my training was over! Luckily Dr. King and the staff helped me return to pre-injury status, and I continued to train. Now, I'm a Portland Marathon FINISHER!!!"
  • "I couldn't stand up straight one day. I was in pain 24 hours. I had to walk like the hunchback of Notre Dame! I tried drugs from an MD (lowered my pain so I could walk straight) and PT treatments (helped a little bit). I prepared myself to learn to live with it, but the pain was such that it diminished the quality of my life. I decided to try a chiropractor and Dr. King was highly recommended. After a few visits I started to feel a real improvement. There were hours that the pain was completely gone. Now, after seven or eight treatments, I feel coming back to my old self and I'm very enthusiastic and grateful. It feels like my body is taking over and it is starting to heal itself!"
  • "I woke up one morning and couldn't move my head - I was in a lot of pain! I took aspirin for a month and hoped it would go away. I tried PT for six months, still suffering from chronic neck pain. Someone told me to try chiropractic care. After two months I feel like a new woman - the pain has subsided to the point I am seldom uncomfortable and I have much more energy!"
  • "My problems started about 31 years ago, when I started working as a secretary. A lot of typing and computer work - sitting a great deal of the time. I lived with my back problems for so many years that I thought that's just how I"m supposed to feel. I didn't "believe" in chiropractic, but someone referred me to Dr. King. After talking with her, I felt I could really trust her. I couldn't believe the energy I had just after a few visits. My mid back no longer bothers me, my shoulder and neck no longer get numb, and my lower back is improving!"
