to Creswell Chiropractic
Dr. Tamara Blum purchased Creswell Chiropractic in 1993. Dr. Blum uses a diversified Chiropractic technique that encompasses many different ways to perform an adjustment. She takes the time to listen to you and examine you to determine a personalize treatment plan. She addresses the muscles as well as the skeletal components of your pain to provide gentle effective relief.
Massage therapy is conveniently located in our office. Chelsea Pisani, LMT has been with Creswell Chiropractic since 2012. If you have greater need for whole body muscle work she offers massages for ½ hour up to 1 1/2 hours. You can also schedule your chiropractic treatment in conjunction with massage.
Oregon Revised Statute 742.518(10) covering motor vehicle insurance coverage refers to ORS 743B.001 to define who can provide medical treatment for someone injured in a motor vehicle accident. That definition is any person licensed by the state of Oregon to provide medical or mental health services. Chiropractors are included in that definition. You do not have to see a medical doctor before seeing a chiropractor after a motor vehicle accident. Again it is your choice which health care practitioner you see. Your insurance company CANNOT tell you who to go to for your injuries sustained in a car crash.
My undergraduate bachelor degree is in Industrial Engineering. Within a year of graduating I hurt my neck body surfing, when the waves slammed my head against the sand. If I didn’t move my head, it didn’t hurt. When I moved my head, my neck hurt. My engineering brain told me that the problem was something mechanical. I’d never been treated by a chiropractor before but I knew a little about it. I made an appointment with a nearby clinic. It turned out the chiropractor I saw was an engineer before he became a chiropractor. As he worked on me I kept thinking “I can do this”. So I did. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1991 from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic.
After 2 years of working as an associate doctor for other chiropractors my husband (and office manager), Al Bennett, and I decided to make the move to Oregon. We always knew we would not stay in California. We looked at several practices for sale but nothing stood out. As soon as we drove into Creswell, we knew we were home. That was 1993, and we’ve been here ever since!
“I have had chronic headaches and migraines for years. Since seeing Dr. Blum, I only have occasional headaches and no more migraines. I had tried all the other medical treatments and seen neurologists. Nothing helped. I've been migraine-free for over 15 years.”
“I have been seeing Dr. Blum for years. I don't have major issues but occasionally need an adjustment. I am usually corrected in one visit. I would recommend Dr. Blum if you are suffering from back pain.”
“Totally awesome! I walk in with back or neck problems and walk out feeling like a million bucks!”
“Dr. Blum is the best of the best. She is so thorough, knows exactly what to do for my aches and pains. Besides, she and her whole office staff are welcoming, warm and caring. What an asset to the community!”
“I have been having adjustments most of my life and I have never experienced a “gentler,” more compassionate, helpful practitioner. She never hesitates to teach you how to care for yourself and refers you to someone else that may be able to help you if she cannot. See her; you will always be in good hands.”
“OMG! You fix me every time!! Thank you!”
