The back is one of the vitalest parts in the human body that, when misaligned, cause your world to become a confusing swirl of doubt, remorse, and confusing eye contact. Stay in line with today's deal: $60 gets you a chiropractic exam and treatment from Clearwater Clinic, a $305 value.
If the body is a machine, then chiropractors are the necessary mechanics. The chiropractors at Clearwater Clinic are highly trained in orthopedics, neurology, anatomy, physiology, nutrition, and metal-bending. Their years of experience with human spines have made them skilled healers and excellent double-dutchers. The Clearwater chiropractors will find the source of your pain and threaten it out of town with the appropriate taunts, gestures, medical experience, and physically restoring services.
After taking your history and evaluating your condition, your chiropractor will administer chiropractic manipulation on up to four regions and follow it with 15 minutes of physiotherapy in the form of myofascial release, ultrasound treatment, muscle stimulation, or a tailored combination of the three (a $260 total value). Your treatment is then topped off with a 30-minute clinical sports massage (a $45 value).
Patients say sitting at a desk for eight hours a day isn't the same after the amiable back-benders are through with you: joints fit together, back pain vanishes, and your guilt for ditching your prom date years ago disappears. A session also helps with nerve, muscle, and organ disorders, and fights fatigue and depression. Should your relieved back serve as a reminder of the other parts of your body in need of salvation, the healers at Clearwater Clinic also provide adept services in naturopathic therapy, sports medicine, and acupuncture.

A Select Clientele
Many rely on chiropractors for regular check-ups to maintain health and comfort. If you belong to one of these specialized subgroups, you might be interested in what a chiropractor can do for you:
- Skeletons: Chiropractors typically work their magic through skin and muscle, but direct access to the vertebrae will allow them to realign your boney corpus, whether you're preparing for a night of singing Cab Calloway in a cartoon cemetery or recovering from the arduous cycle of perpetually dropping from the rafters on a system of pulleys and wires.
- Octopi: Compressing your entire body to squeeze through a gap the size of your own eyeball can cause undue strain on the ink bladder. A chiropractor can adapt to your unique physique with a warm-water tentacle stretch and massage, followed by refreshingly hurling you onto the ice at a Redwings game.
- Robots: Your modular composition makes you the perfect candidate for a complete disassembly and compressed air dusting, followed by an isopropyl alcohol bath and quick and painless meltdown, you deceitful metal snake.

Clearwater Clinic’s three chiropractic doctors, Bryan Baisinger, Jacob May, and Greg Lekas, all share at least one other passion: athletics. Dr. Baisinger, the owner, specializes in sports medicine and performance, and is the former medical director for the Portland Fit marathon-training group. When he isn’t in the office, he’s serving as team physician for Portland State University’s athletics department or hapkido instructor at Portland State.
Dr. May is a member of the physical therapy team at the Oregon Ballet Theater, Dr. Lekas teaches martial arts, and both donate their time and skills to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training sports-training program. At Clearwater, all three doctors combine their areas of expertise to provide integrative chiropractic care with manipulative therapy and manual-adjustment techniques.
They’re aided by a team of specialists that helps identify a range of issues—whether it’s mental stress caused by working too much or physical stress caused by tunneling out of a work cubicle. Naturopathic doctor Lindsey Nelson educates patients on plans for stress reduction and proper nutrition. Lori Petras, meanwhile, treats clients with acupuncture or Chinese herbs. And, using modalities such as deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot or cold-stone massage, a pair of licensed massage therapists removes tension from muscles.
