Dr. Devyn Champagne, Chiropractic physician
I am a Chiropractic Physician who loves what I do and am compassionate and heart- centered. I like to create and hold open a space for you that is genuine, warm, and comforting. Holding this space is extremely helpful in furthering relaxation and releasing mental or emotional stress that may be contributing to the physical stress on the body. I am a strong believer in mindfulness to cultivate a healthy balance of body, mind, and spirit, and I love to incorporate breathing exercises to address this piece as well.
As a Chiropractor, my focus is on the root cause of dis-comfort, dis-ease, and decreased function. Movement and balance are key in creating both inner and outer alignment of the body. As an avid lifetime dancer, mover, and shaker, I place an emphasis on posture, musculoskeletal imbalances, biomechanics of the body, and nutrition. Since no two individuals are the same, I customize my treatments utilizing a variety of adjusting techniques and, if needed, muscle/ soft tissue work, as well as instruction for a home routine of stretches and exercises. These techniques and modalities help to aid in recovery from injury and promote longevity of general wellness. I love to educate my patients about their own bodies and to empower them to be proactive with their own health.
I am a licensed Chiropractic Physician nationally and in the state of Oregon. My treatment focuses include but are not limited to:
Injury due to auto accidents and whiplash
Pain associated with repetitive daily activities and stress
Neck pain/ cervicaglia
Pain, numbness, tingling, dysfunction, and/or injury to the extremities
Low back, hip, pelvic discomfort
Peripartum mommies and pelvic care
Pregnancy and chiropractic:
I am Webster certified, a member of the American Pregnancy Association (APA), and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). I have an extra emphasis on working with pregnant mommies, post-partum mommies, and children. Pelvic balance greatly influences the birthing process and helps decrease dystocia, one of the reasons for obstructed labor or lengthy labor, allowing for mother and baby to have an easier labor process.
Webster technique is a gentle treatment used to balance the pelvis and create an idyllic pelvic bowl for the baby to position him/herself properly for labor. It can be helpful for breech presentation, but also to maintain balance even if the baby is already in position. This technique is all about balancing the mother’s muscles, ligaments, and pelvic alignment, and does not in any way involve the doctor moving the baby. It’s about creating a nest that the baby will be more eager to lie in properly. The baby then moves him/herself if and when ready.
I have been a Portlander since 2003, and it was love at first sight with this city. I absolutely LOVE the PNW and there’s nowhere else I’d rather live. I grew up ocean swimming regularly, dancing a variety of styles since the age of 4 with emphasis on ballet for 10+ years, and playing many sports. I have a passion for yoga and how it brings the breath, body, movement, and mind together into the present moment. A night at home with my husband and two fur babies, Freyja the kitten, and Karma the pup, make for a perfect night.
Patient reviews and testimonials:
“I saw Devyn Champagne DC for an adjustment and was impressed with her thorough evaluation and care. She took the time to explain what her evaluation discovered and what I could do [about] some of my symptoms. When I left the office I felt so much better and appreciated the time she took to listen to the symptoms I was experiencing.” – S.K.
“A year ago I had a full hip replacement and wasn't sure how that would factor into chiro therapy. After speaking with Dr. Champagne she made me feel at ease and researched how to handle me properly. It's nice to have an eager Doctor really put their passion into helping someone seek the highest level of treatment. She was very knowledgeable in new holistic ways. Since seeing her I've never felt better. My range of motion throughout my whole body has never been better. I have to say I am impressed! She takes the time every appointment to focus on consistent healing.” – P.P.
