What my patients are saying:
I injured my back on vacation in Portland, and needed to see a chiropractor, on short notice, in a unknown city, on a weekend. Dr. Craig came to my rescue. He was very accommodating and understanding of my situation. Dr. Craig is pleasant to work with, gentle, and knowledgeable. He was even willing to work with my out-of-state insurance. I can’t say enough good things about Craig Total Health Chiropractic.
I visited Dr. Craig for a hamstring injury I picked up playing soccer. I’ve had slight injuries to various leg muscles in the past and knew resting up for several weeks was the only cure. This time when I pulled the muscle, I knew it was bad enough for a month or two lay off. I first called Dr. Craig and explained the issue, and he was very accommodating to my schedule. His office was very calm, peaceful and inviting. It was also conveniently located, just to the east of the Morrison Bridge. He took a very detailed medical history and explained everything he was going to do to examine my injury. The first session involved a little back adjustment (for a pre-existing issue) and some deep tissue massage and ultrasound work. The next appointment, less than a week later, was more of the same as well as increased stretching of the muscle. He also used Kinesio (aka magic) tape on my muscle and explained all the benefits of the tape. By the third appointment my leg was feeling almost perfect and he had increased the stretching angles on both my legs beyond what I was able to do before my injury. By the final appointment, less then 4 weeks after the initial injury, I was back playing, several weeks ahead of what I had initially thought. Dr. Craig was very welcoming and professional throughout each visit, always taking the time to explain each treatment he was about do. He also gave me some detailed stretching exercises which have helped my overall movement on the field. I have recommended him to team-mates, friends and co-workers, and will continue to do so.
Two out of six chiropractors that I’ve visited previously, grew on me over time, but this is the most calm and safe I have ever felt on an initial visit.
I wholeheartedly recommend Alex as a chiropractor — he helped me get my life back!
Nine months after I started treatment with Alex, I walked through China for 2 weeks absolutely pain free. I shudder to think what my life would be like had I been convinced that surgery was my only option, limiting my physical activity.
Throughout the entire treatment, Dr. Craig continually monitored my progress, answered my continued questions, and offered the enthusiasm and support which I needed and had not gotten from my previous doctors. I must add that, as an unexpected bonus, I have lost 38 lbs. and found the motivation to live healthier and more fulfilling life. I recommend Dr. Craig wholeheartedly for his efficiency, calm, kind and caring manner as a physician. Thank you Dr. Craig!

Can I get an AAAAYAMEEEAAAN!
I was in a car accident about 10 years ago injuring my neck, jaw and back which caused a great deal of pain. I tried 3 other chiropractors; some were good at neck adjustments, but not back adjustments, and vis-versa with the other doctors. Dr. Craig is excellent at ALL adjustments. I have had an immense reduction in the severity and episodes of pain. He is gentle and never forces an adjustment. For those TMJ sufferers, Dr. Craig is excellent at neck adjustments without touching the jaw—Very important.
I first came to see Dr. Craig after having been rear ended at a stop light. I was at a dead stop and didn’t see it coming so I really got a good jolt. Two days after the accident, I knew I needed to see someone. I could barely turn my head from side to side and had severe pain from my neck all the way down to my lower back. I was having trouble sleeping and working 8 hours at a desk was very difficult.
I first saw my regular doctor who prescribed muscle relaxers so strong I couldn’t take them during the day. I tried to ignore the problem but after a month of continued pain, I decided to seek alternative solutions. I had never been to a Chiropractor and was a little nervous. Turns out I had no reason to be. Dr. Craig is thorough, thoughtful and very patient. He explained everything that he was doing and why. After our initial meeting, which lasted about an hour, Dr. Craig prescribed three sessions a week with him along with massage therapy twice a week. We started out slowly with a lot of work on the muscles surrounding my neck. Dr. Craig started with small adjustments in my lower back and upper neck. Over the next 3-4 weeks, I started feeling amazing improvements in my condition. I was able to turn my head from side to side and I was starting to feel almost normal.
During the next month the frequency of our sessions went down and my condition continued to improve. All said and done I feel better than ever. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Craig for his treatment and recommend his services to anyone looking for excellent chiropractic treatment.
I had been experiencing dizziness, or vertigo, for a couple of weeks and had no idea what was causing it. The problem was unsettling as many times I shifted position from sitting to standing or lying to standing it felt like the room was spinning. I went to a medical doctor who could not diagnose the problem. The doctor suggested that it could be an inner-ear issue, perhaps a virus, but had no treatment for it. As the condition did not improve, I sought the help of Dr. Craig. He was familiar with the issue and told me he was aware of a couple of things he could try to help rid me of the vertigo. Dr. Craig had me follow some very simple movements for the inner ear. I am happy to say that after only two treatments my vertigo was gone and I have not experienced any problems with vertigo since.
