Kelsall Chiropractic is happy to welcome a new Portland Chiropractic Physician to our practice: Dr. Andrew Caroon. His holistic approach to treating patients focuses on injury prevention, intentional healing and rehabilitative exercise to promote the body’s resiliency to future injuries. Furthermore, Dr. Caroon believes patient education is critical to help you understand the “why” behind your complaint and what you can do to prevent similar problems in the future.
Dr. Caroon is a Washington State native, growing up in the city of Bellevue where he developed a love for athletics and the outdoors at an early age. This passion lead him to study at Western Washington University where he received a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology and a Minor in Sports Psychology. After completing his undergraduate education, Dr. Caroon began searching for a career that would allow him to educate others on the mental and physical benefits associated with living an active lifestyle. This search led him to the University of Western States here in Portland, where he earned his Doctorate in Chiropractic along with a Master of Science in Sports Medicine.
While completing the Sports Medicine program, Dr. Caroon volunteered as an athletic trainer at multiple high schools around the Portland area, treating and educating young athletes on training principles and injury prevention. Additionally, he worked as medical staff at numerous events throughout Oregon, including the Seaside Volleyball Tournament, Canby Rodeo, Pacific Crest Sports Festival and Race The Freeze Obstacle Course. Whether treating sports injuries, extremities, postural aches, or any number of conditions, his approach combines manual adjusting, low-force muscle relaxation techniques, soft tissue therapy, home-care rehab, and nutritional support. Treatments are focused on assisting the patient to achieve individualized goals and perform at their optimal level.
When Dr. Caroon is not in the clinic, you may find him enjoying one of the many fine food establishments around Portland as food is another passion of his. He also spends his time hiking, camping, bike riding, playing basketball, fly fishing, and kettlebell training in which he is also a Level 1 Certified Instructor through StrongFirst. Dr. Caroon is excited to join Kelsall Chiropractic and help you get back to a pain free life.
