Due to the latest updated and recommendations from CDC guidelins and restrictions from the State of Oregon, we have made the decision to close our office temporarily starting Monday March 23rd through Friday April 3rd.
At this point, we feel it is our social responsibility to lessen the spread of COVID-19 and make sure our patients can stay home and support their family, friends and loved ones.

If you have an appointment within that time period we will be reaching out to you to noitfy you and to reschedule.

Thank you in advance for you flexibility as we figure out our next steps.
We will be checking voice messages (503) 419-6220 and emails [email protected] daily.

If you have questions regarding your home program or are in significant pain, please reach out to use and we will work over the phone or video conference to get you back on track.

Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

If you’ve recently been through a motor vehicle accident, the experts at Synergy Spine Therapy can help you get relief from your injuries!

Motor vehicle accidents have devastating effects on the body. The most common injury received in an car accident is whiplash. Over 3 million people in the U.S. will report having some form of whiplash injuries sustained in a car accident each year. Physical therapy is the most common treatment for whip lash. It is not uncommon to see everything from muscle strain to fractures and tearing. Physical therapy is important in helping those who have been injured to aid recovery for motor vehicle accidents, as it helps to reduce stiffness and improve range of motion.

We treat all types of injuries related to car accidents and are focused on helping you to full recovery as quickly as possible. By utilizing hands-on manual therapy and therapeutic exercise, we can help you get back to your life as quickly as possible, while also ensuring long-term relief from injuries. We work closely with auto insurance adjusters, patients, and referring providers to provide the most comprehensive care, ensuring a full return-to-function for each individual.

Our MVA is made up of four stages:
  1. Post-Accident education and modalities are emphasized to reduce pain and inflammation.
  2. After, gentle exercises are introduced to begin remodeling tissues and restoring ROM.
  3. As the patient recovers, we transition to hands-on techniques to improve joint function and mobility,
  4. Finally, graduated active exercises are incorporated to strengthen tissues and restore pain free movement for long-term recovery.
