Dr. Brent Warner, DC

Dr. Brent Warner, D.C., B.S. has been practicing chiropractic for 29 years since graduating from Western States Chiropractic College here in Portland, Oregon.

He was head of the physical medicine department of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine for four years where he taught physical therapy, spinal and extremity manipulation, and orthopedics. Dr. Warner specializes in Diversified Technique, Nerve Gliding – a means of freeing trapped nerves, Strain/Counter Strain and other muscle release techniques.

Dr. Warner does Endo-nasal Technique – a means of opening the eustacian tubes to assist with middle ear drainage. He also does Nasal Specifics – a means of releasing tension in cranial bones. In addition Dr. Warner manipulates stomachs for hiatal hernia – a condition where the stomach has protruded into the diaphragm causing GERD (acid reflux) and other digestive problems. Among his orthopedic specialties are included knee and rib manipulations; by understanding the subtle but important mechanics of the knee joint (the most complicated joint in the body). Dr. Warner has been able to bring much relief to people suffering with minor to moderate knee problems.

The same can be said for his understanding of how ribs move during breathing. Again: ribs have a very complicated motion in that they are bound to the vertebrae at two locations along the rib. That means that both joints need to be evaluated not just one as is commonly taught.

Dr. Warner practices gentle chiropractic believing that introducing corrections into the body should be done with as little force as possible to assist with healing process.

Practice Philosophy

My treating principle is based on the salutogenic (health-based) model of health with the use of evidence-based modalities to help patients achieve their health goals in a safe, gentle, holistic, and sustainable way. The sociocultural and humanistic aspects of patient care is of great importance to me. I am a healer, an educator, and a cheerleader; I help my patients understand all aspects of their health care and make the journey to better health easier and less confusing.

*A quick note on the “salutogenic (health-based) model of health” vs “disease-oriented (pathogenic) model: In the salutogenic model, the emphasis is placed on the factors which support the patient’s well-being. The goal is to create an environment in the patient that is inhospitable to disease.  Whereas, in the traditional disease-oriented model of health, the focus is on the pathogen, not the patient.
