About Us

Convenient, Compassionate Healthcare Expertise

Berntsen Chiropractic has been conveniently located in the heart of East Portland since 1988. The Gateway neighborhood is located at the intersection of I-84 and I-205, making the clinic very easy to get to from anywhere in Portland or Vancouver. Buses stop in front of our building and the Max train is one block away. There is free off-street parking behind the clinic. Walk-ins are welcome.

You will be greeted by Elsie, who has been the front office manager for 18 years. She has a complete knowledge of the administrative side of healthcare and will be able to assist you with paperwork, insurance and in answering your questions. Patients really appreciate her knowledge, compassion and desire to help. She also speaks fluent Spanish. Paperwork takes just a few minutes and you rarely have to wait for the doctor.

Our treatment approach is a balanced blend of personal hands-on therapies, as well as the use of state-of-the-art, high tech equipment. Treatment ranges from being gentle, to exceptionally gentle. For those patients who appreciate a more vigorous form of spinal adjustments, we do that too.

We specialize in treating neck and back injuries from car collisions and on-the-job accidents. We have been doing this for 28 years and have the specialized knowledge and expertise necessary to successfully help patients recover and to effectively work with the insurance industry.
