Allied Chiropractic was started in 2003 with the vision of bringing high quality care with a friendly atmosphere to downtown Hillsboro.
We believe in teamwork between a doctor and a patient. Because chiropractic is drugless and non-surgical, patients have a safe and effective way of caring for their body. We’re committed to providing a comfortable office experience with modern equipment and friendly staff. Our extended office hours and status as an “in-network provider” make sense for busy and budget conscious patients.
We also believe that everybody has the right to be healthy and that the body has the capacity to heal itself when it is allowed to. Instead of covering symptoms with medicines or resorting to invasive options, we feel chiropractic is a good first choice for someone who is looking to improve their health or get rid of pain.

A 2007 study of 50 276 chiropractic manipulations of the cervical spine which turned up no reports of serious adverse effects. The authors concluded that the risk of serious adverse effects was, at worst, 6 per 100,000 manipulations. The most common minor side effect was fainting, dizziness, and/or light-headedness, which occurred after, at worst, 16 in 1,000 treatments. (Thiel HW, Bolton JE, Docherty S, Portlock JC (2007). “Safety of chiropractic manipulation of the cervical spine: a prospective national survey”. Spine 32 (21): 2375–8.)
According to the World Health Organization “employed skillfully and appropriately, chiropractic care is safe and effective for the prevention and management of a number of health problems.”
Chiropractic services are in high demand. Tens of millions of Americans routinely opt for chiropractic services and this number is rapidly growing. In 1993, more than 30 million people made chiropractic a regular part of their health care program.
Chiropractors have Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degrees granted to them from chiropractic colleges. To receive the doctor of chiropractic degree, candidates must complete extensive undergraduate prerequisites and four years of graduate-level instruction and internship at an accredited chiropractic institution. Comprehensive knowledge of all systems of the body and diagnostic procedures enable the DC to thoroughly evaluate a patient, address disorders relating to the spine and determine the need for referral to another health care provider.
Doctors of chiropractic provide effective, low-cost health care for a wide range of conditions. Compared to alternatives such as medication and surgery, chiropractic care is quite inexpensive.
No. Doctors of Chiropractic are primary health care providers. According to the Center for Studies in Health Policy, “The DC can provide all three levels of primary care interventions and therefore is a primary care provider, as are MD’s and DOs. The doctor of chiropractic is a gatekeeper to the health care system and an independent practitioner who provides primary care services. The DC’s office is a direct access portal of entry to the full scope of service.”
The doctor of chiropractic can treat a wide range of conditions and is an effective source of preventative and wellness care. The anatomical focus of the DC on the human spine has created the perception of the DC as just a “back doctor.” Although this perception is not entirely incorrect, it is very much incomplete. Doctors of chiropractic are a highly appropriate resource in matters of work-place safety, neck problems, stress management, injury prevention, and postural correction.
Chiropractors provide effective treatment for all types of soft tissue disorders and not just back and neck ailments. This includes conditions of the joints of the extremities like the ankle, knee and shoulder. What you may not be aware of is chiropractic’s success in treating a number of non-soft tissue conditions like dysmenorrhea (painful menses), ulcers, migraine headaches, and ear infections in children. While we cannot claim to cure these conditions, we believe that many of these problems can be mimicked, aggravated and some times caused by disruptions in the nervous system as a result of spinal abnormalities. By correcting these spinal abnormalities like the vertebral subluxation, chiropractic has helped thousands of individuals overcome these conditions and regain control of their lives.
