Our team is rooted in the Bend, Oregon community. We live here, raise our families here and have built our lives around serving people like you. Pangea Chiropractic has been serving Bend Oregon since 2012. Together, our doctors have worked with thousands of patients from Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Madras, Culver, Burns, LaPine, Sunriver and many other surrounding areas.
At Pangea, we believe that the power that made the body heals the body. We also believe that health is possible for each and every one of us. When the body becomes off balance from one of 3 stressors (physical, chemical, or emotional) it’s only a matter of time before the symptoms start to show up. Think of symptoms like the “check engine light” in your car. The light itself doesn’t represent the problem, but rather as an alarm notifying the driver that there is a potentially deeper and more serious issue needing to be addressed. When you visit Pangea for your first appointment, the doctors will address your symptoms while digging deeper discovering the root cause.
Our doctors are all licensed and certified physicians and have served thousands of patients around the world. They also regularly visit India to give care in underserved areas through Renegade Chiropractic Missions (soon to become 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) started in 2012 by Drs. Torchio and Campbell. The Pangea doctors have taught more than 500 educational health classes in Bend and have lectured at hundreds of local events and seminars. Our doctors talk the talk and walk the walk of what true health is and are committed to sharing their wealth of knowledge with you.
The Pangea team is focused on getting results and keeping you healthy for life. Our doctors have built a model for health that starts with listening. Next, they’ll set specific goals and perform very detailed examinations to get to the root cause of your condition. If needed, our doctors will take high-quality digital x-rays and motions studies to identify where the problem is coming from, how long the problem has been there, and what is needed to achieve correction. Lastly, our doctors have been selected by the Bend community for 6 years in a row as the BEST ALTERNATIVE HEALTH CARE PROVIDER. Starting with Pangea is the next best step toward reaching your fullest potential.

I can’t tell you how many people we see that come into the office with a problem that when we ask them when and how it first started they can point to the exact moment, sometimes decades earlier. At our office, we focus on how your body is functioning as opposed to how it is feeling. When the body is functioning correctly, the feeling will take care of itself. Unfortunately, too many patients only decide to seek care when they start feeling bad enough. The problem with that is pain is usually the last thing to show up and the first thing to go away. It is kind of like the tip of the iceberg. Just because it’s the only thing you see doesn’t mean it’s the only thing that is there.
When those patients that have been dealing with a problem for years or decades start to function (and feel) better one of the things almost every one of them says is, “I wish I would have found you guys earlier.” Not only could they have avoided unnecessary suffering but if they’d come in earlier we may have been able to help them more. You see, matter has limitations. What I mean by that is that when something happens, let’s say you are in a car accident, your body changes. Now if we are able to treat someone right away it is much more likely to get someone back to their pre-injury status because the changes haven’t set in yet. The longer you wait, the more those changes become permanent. Scar tissue builds up, the way you move changes, nerves can be damaged, and more. If we get to someone a long time after that accident, there is a good chance that we can get them feeling better but there is a certain amount of function that is never coming back, and if they aren’t able to function at 100% they will be more susceptible to injuries going forward.
Your body doesn’t want you to be in pain forever so it starts to adapt if an injury isn’t treated. For example, if you have knee pain in your right knee, your body may start to favor that knee and avoid putting as much weight on it when you walk. That in turn changes the way that you walk, which puts stress on your lower back. It also can cause your other knee to bear more of the weight so if the problem isn’t addressed you can end up with two bad knees. The body’s ability to adapt is powerful but those adaptions are meant to be short-term solutions. A lot of times when our bodies adapt it allows us to feel better even as the function decreases. If those adaptions are left to set in eventually the pain will return.
When those patients I mentioned earlier wish they’d found us sooner it is because they realize how much time, energy, and money has been wasted on dealing with the problem over the years. I implore you to not wait to get checked out because waiting will very rarely help. It will only help to hide the underlying problem and can create other compensatory issues as well as turning the original injury into a chronic one. The last thing you want is to have a feeling of regret that you should have taken care of something sooner. When dealing with a chronic health problem, I think of it like planting a tree. They say the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, but the second-best time is now. So don’t delay any longer. Schedule your appointment with one of our amazing Doctors today!
