Treatments for Headaches

“(I’m a) student, 27 years old and I had migraines for 15 years (since 7th grade). Throughout the years I blamed many things for my headaches, including my long hair, the sun, not enough water, hot weather, too much sugar, the stress in my life, etc. My family doctor told me that I was just very sensitive to pain and put me on three different medications, which didn’t help. I couldn’t handle the migraines anymore and called Dr. MacDonald as a ‘last resort. He fixed me and I no longer have headaches. I feel great!”

“Our 8 year old daughter woke up one morning with a migraine headache that lasted for almost 6 months. After months of working with a pediatric neurologist, a week’s stay at the hospital, multiple medications, massage therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture and cranial sacral work, we decided to see a chiropractor. We were advised against it but didn’t see any other option. After a couple of treatments, we started seeing an improvement. We slowly took her off of the medication and continued chiropractic treatment for several months. Four days after her last pill, our daughter informed us that her headache was gone.” “We were very skeptical about using a chiropractor, but in our daughter’s case, was the only thing that relieved her pain. Needless to say, we are no longer skeptical…We are very thankful and grateful for being referred to Dr. MacDonald. He is excellent with children and puts 110% into his patients. I would highly recommend him and his treatment to my friends and family.”

Treatments for Back Pain

“When I first arrived at Cascade Health Center (Dr. MacDonald, Eugene Chiropractor) for chiropractic treatments, I had been suffering with lower back pain in my hips and legs and severe groin pain and very hot spot in my lower abdomen for some seven years or so. My walking distance was literally to the next or closest chair, bench or whatever would support me to ease my weight off my lower back. Standing and walking would cause severe groin pain, lower back pain and it felt as if metal spikes were driven into my hips. Simply I had to sit or stand next to anything that would reduce the weight off my back. After two chiropractic treatments, the severe pain in my groin disappeared and after about my fifth treatment, the pain in my hips and the hot spot in my lower abdomen was almost completely gone. I still get the hot spot in my lower abdomen about once or twice a week but it only lasts a few seconds at most. I am sincerely happy and appreciative of the wonderful and fantastic results I have achieved in such a short time via Dr. MacDonald’s chiropractic treatments to date”
G.L. Retired Engineer
“My experience with back pain has over-shadowed my life negatively for approximately 8 years. After coming to be treated by Dr. MacDonald I have finally felt a substantial loss of back pain, which has allowed me to have a renewed zeal for life without nagging back pain. I have a much more positive outlook on life, sleep better, and have resumed many activities I had given up due to back pain.”
“I’m a logger by trade. I walked into Dr. MacDonald’s office really unsure of the whole thing. Now I’m overwhelmed with how I feel: young, alive, and flexible. I can play with my grandchildren. I highly recommend Dr. MacDonald.”
(available for reference)
“My experience with chiropractic has helped alleviate or reduce my back problem that a regular M.D. could not. Dr MacDonald is also extremely knowledgeable and addresses his patients’ problems with knowledge and understanding.”
“Last year my cholesterol was 210, but the worst part was that my HDL (good cholesterol) was only 29; my ratio was 6.7. Ratios are supposed to be under 5. This year, after consistent supplementation with fish oil, my cholesterol is 179, but the best part is that my HDL is 44; ratio is 4.1. I am told that although it is one thing to lower LDLs (changing diet, and even medication), the only things that can raise HDLs are exercise and omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil). In my case, it certainly wasn’t the exercise. I’m thrilled with the benefits of taking fish oil and plan to keep it as a regular part of my diet..”

“In the past, my deliveries have been very long and difficult. 1st one resulting in a c-section after 19 hours of labor, second delivery 13 hours with back labor and a 4th degree laceration. My most recent delivery, labor began at 0630, i got to the hospital at 0910 and delivered at 1047 am. 4 amazing hours of labor and delivery with no complications and a minor one stitch repair. I attribute this wonderful experience to receiving adjustments with Dr. MacDonald every 4 weeks up to the 3rd trimester and every 2 weeks up to delivery. Adjacent to adjustments I added massage! I am convinced that consistent treatments and relaxation techniques decreased the time that I spent in labor and the result of an amazing delivery experience with my new daughter!”
“During my 2nd pregnancy I had regular treatment from Dr. MacDonald. The treatments were quick and easy. My 1st pregnancy was well over 20 hours and I was surprised when my second took only 6-7 hours. My labor went great as well as recovery. I definately recommend chiropractic treatment during pregnancy-especially from Dr. MacDonald, who has knowledge and respect for the pregnancy/delivery process”

Treatments for Auto Accident Injuries

“Thank you for the excellent care I received after my car accident. I felt your sincere care for my pain. I appreciate the time you took to explain to me my condition, the course of treatment, and answered all my questions. Your stellar office staff knows my name and always has a smile…a special thanks to all the massage therapists for the intense hands-on. I have already told some friends, who see you now, so there are more of us now walking upright! Thank you!”
(available for reference)
Following a car accident in 2003, I sought chiropractic attention from Dr. MacDonald, D.C., P.C. Not having much experience with chiropractors, I had a lot of initial skepticism. Dr. MacDonald took time to address each of my questions and concerns before and throughout my treatment with him. His vast knowledge and professionalism gained my full trust, as he led my body from pain to health and healing. Dr Garreth MacDonald is a name I would recommend to any one and everyone. If you need a chiropractor, you need Dr. Garreth MacDonald.”
Professional Musician


“I was very pleased with the care I received as well as the outcome of my treatment. I was not promised an over-night ’fix’ but given a carefully planned approach to getting me healthy and pain-free. I would definitely recommend Dr. MacDonald to others seeking Chiropractic treatment.”
HR Coordinator
“Dr. MacDonald is the most concerned, caring, and compassionate and trusting chiropractor I have ever known.”

Work Injuries

“My low back was injured on the job and due to that injury and ongoing occupational stresses, I have had chronic low back pain since 2000. After many trial and error efforts with local chiropractors and physical therapists, I was fortunate enough to find Dr. MacDonald. He has correctly re-aligned my vertebrae and taken the pressure off the nerves which were causing my pain and numbness down my legs, but I think, more importantly, has helped me focus on my day-to-day maintenance with his stretching and exercise program. Thank you Dr. MacDonald.”

I'm incredibly impressed with Dr. MacDonald. I've been having back and neck pain since around 2014, been to several acupuncturists,... chiropractors and physical therapists since, as insurance will allow, and not only did Dr. MacDonald narrow down all my years of pain to my spine being slightly out of wack, but he compared my x-ray to that of a normal spine, was very thorough in his explanations and theories about what was going on with me, and even brought up articles from medical journals about my issue and how it's related to other physical issues I've been having in the last decade. And he still had time in that hour to take new X-rays, measure them while I watched, gave me a pad to put in my shoe under my heel, retook x-rays right after, and measured the new X-rays again to demonstrate his point. He also had time to snap-crackle-pop my ribs and neck a bit before I left. It blew my mind to realize that it hasn't been an issue with my nerves and muscles this whole time like I'd been hearing from other chiropractors and the physical therapist, but that my bones are the issue that actually needs addressed. Simply inserting the heel pad into my shoe and seeing the before and after X-rays and measurements got me completely on board with his theory.He has obviously dealt with this kind of issue a lot and I honestly have never had a doctor actually show me medical articles to back up their theory before. That was awesome! I have a follow up appointment next week to see how well the simple change of the pad in my shoe works, but I'm loving Cascade Health Center so far! I initially just chose to go here for basic chiro or physical therapy or massage maintenance for my back and neck pain since I'd considered it mostly resolved by now and left feeling like I gained more information about the last decade of my physical ailments in one hour than I have in the entire decade from other health more

I have been to chiropractors before, however I just wasn't finding relief. Neck pain and headaches and intermittent back pain. And I was having... multiple headaches a week. Decided to try out Cascade Heath Center after my husband told me to give his Doc a try. After my first appointment a couple months ago, I learned about my neck and spine and how to help take better care of myself. Now I have a neck pillow, neck exercises and no notable headaches!read more

My lady goes to CHC for massage and was recently trying to set up her next appointment. She's had issues in the past with conflicting insurance... information and been stuck having to pay out of pocket for things that were confirmed as being covered in the past.Today she was trying to set up her next appointment and was specifically trying to set up an appointment with 1 of 2 specialists. These are the ONLY 2 people her insurance has verbally agreed to her are covered at this facility.She insisted that she could only make an appointment with one of these two people but the receptionist refused to book her with one of the specialists while the other supposedly no longer works there.The receptionist (Aaron I believe) was adamant that her isurance covers ALL specialists at their facility. My lady was not comfortable taking the chance of her insurance not covering it and politely asked to be booked with the one specialist left, even if it was a ways out.The receptionist refused and essentially gave my lady no option other then to cancel the appointment that had been made with what was told to her by her Insurance, would not be covered.Regardless of which side is not conveying information correctly to her, someone is incorrect and it isn't her. She's simply trying to get treatment for a medical condition. I requested to be called back by the receptionist after calling for her due to her being very upset after having to cancel because she's in pain.This was extremely unprofessional, and instead of just booking her a ways out with someone who she knew WOULDN'T be a problem, they refused and now she has no massage therapist.I work in customer service and when someone prefers something to be handled in a specific manor that has NO impact on the professionalism of my business, we accommodate. This is the opposite of accommodating your clients. This is terrible customer service. Get your information squared away with the insurance companies so you aren't causing people to pay out of pocket or make sure the insurance companies aren't conveying incorrect information about your more

My rib is still out painfully crunching around behind my shoulder blade. No x-rays after adjustments have been received. DC wanted to dismiss... me based on positive verbal feedback, but just because I'm happy to even be feeling .01% better doesn't mean I don't still need adjustments. I was "cut loose," to "just live" as I was told, even though I mentioned and spoke up about the rib still being out. When I was first treated there, there was a lot more thought and time into the approach of treatment, but it quickly turned into a quantity over quality type of clinic. Rush yah back, rush yah out type deal. Bummer. I will try a 3rd DC for the rib, but it may not be able to be fixed by a DC. I will ask one again with the time available.Why no follow up x-ray? Why release someone with one of the problems they came in with if it's supposedly treatable there, not improving, and mentioned by the patient repeatedly? No alterative ideas to treat it were mentioned. Best of luckread more

I've been to a lot of chiropractors over the years, and Dr. MacDonald is the best! He has an amazing intuition about how the back, hips and... shoulders are working, and can fix them to actually work together!Also, I haven't been this comfortable with a male health care provider of any kind. I have some anxiety/PTSD issues that tend to kick in with most males, but Dr. MacDonald has the nicest presence about him, I immediately felt at ease! And that was my first clue he could help me!I used to have to see a doctor or chiropractor every week or two, but since going here, I've gotten it down to every couple months for a tune up!So if you need a great chiropractor, GO HERE!read more

I recently started seeing Dr. MacDonald and he is the most thorough chiropractor I've been treated by. And just completely different compared... to other chiropractors I've gone to. He doesn't just adjust you and then send you on your way. He looks at x-rays and identifies exactly what is going on with your spine and then he educates you as well as figuring what treatment plan fits you. I Highly recommend seeing this more

My doctor sent in a referral so I could receive massages for my stress headaches, I didn’t hear anything after a week so I called Cascade... Health Center and they stated that they didn’t receive my referral, so I then had my doctors office resend another referral and again they didn’t receive it. I was told by the receptionist or whomever that they were having problems with their fax. So I asked her since they were having problems with their fax if she could get ahold of my doctors office for the referral that they needed. I was told that they couldn’t do that. To me this isn’t customer service or any service of professionalism. I have been waiting over a month now to get into this place only for them to give me excuses.And to the lady I talk to, I have every reason to be upset for having to wait this long and still got nowhere. When I worked in the medical field I went way beyond to help my clients. I learned how to defuse problems not create them, So instead of getting hurt feelings next time why don’t you learn how to defuse a problem. Because of the lack of help you showed, you came across as lazy and uncaring to solve the problem.With this whole experience I would’ve gave them a zero star if It was an option.FYI, I did check with my doctors office both times and they made sure that it said Cascade Health Center. But it’s also the fact that I had called and I Left messages with no return calls. The two times that I did leave messages I included my full name my date of birth and my phone number.But when your office staff says they’ve been having problems with your own fax machine and I made a suggestion of calling my doctors office to resolve the issue of getting my referral and they say they can’t do it says a lot about your office professionalism which lacks greatly. Sorry you felt like your hands were tied on a reasonable suggestion…read more

I started going to Dr. Macdonald about 3 years ago and continued to see him during my recent pregnancy. Being active, doing yoga and getting... adjusted regularly helped make the pregnancy journey that much easier. No back pain and a quick recovery. Thanks Dr. Macdonald!read more

I cannot express how grateful I am to have found this chiropractor. I have had pretty bad back pain for years now, and it took this... chiropractor only a couple of sessions to get to the root of the problem. He is thorough with his examination and explains your issues to you so that you can actually understand what is going on with your back. I went from not being able to walk, stand, or sit up straight without back pain, to now walking a few miles a day and workout like it’s no ones business lol. My lower back doesn’t ache at all. I have seen other chiropractors that adjusted me, but never actually figured out how to make the affects lasting and beneficial. I’m now only having to see him “as needed”, and at this point, I haven’t needed any other assistance. I HIGHLY recommend him, plus the staff is pleasant and more
