Meet Dr. Beau Sparks
Beau was raised just northeast of Portland in the small town of Brush Prairie, Washington. His academic career began by studying kinesiology at Washington State University-Pullman. His passion and hard work in the subject gave him the opportunity to design and lead the strength training protocols for division-1 athletes. The University‘s teachings on proper spinal mechanics is what intrigued his curiosity in the chiropractic profession. This inquisitiveness drove him to graduate from University of Western States in 2019 with a doctorate of chiropractic and masters of sports medicine.
Beau’s favorite hobbies revolve around fitness, as his career choice suggests. He has always been fascinated by physical challenge and the liberation that results from beating personal goals. Some of his preferred activities are weightlifting, hiking and playing sports such as basketball and football. Beau is engaged to his college sweetheart, Lexi, and is looking forward to marriage in 2020.
Having worked with a diverse range of musculoskeletal conditions, Dr. Sparks practices with the philosophy that every patient has an “athletic value” that can be built upon and utilized to create long-term results. This drives Beau to place a premium importance on core strength and its relation to spinal conditions. His main treatment focus utilizes diversified adjusting, spinal traction therapies, myofascial release techniques and core stabilization exercises to alleviate pain and restore proper joint mechanics.

What is Chiropractic?
In 1895, Daniel David Palmer founded a therapy that allows the body to heal naturally. Now, 120+ years later, the chiropractic profession has built a reputation as a mainstream option for people dealing with chronic pain and other ailments. Today, chiropractic physicians are extensively trained to understand the human body in immense detail. Chiropractic, as originally defined, is a holistic philosophy because its foundation is the premise that the whole (functioning body) is greater than the sum of its parts. The World Health Organization defines health as a "state" of complete physical, mental and social well-being (including the ability to lead an economically productive life) and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. We aim to treat symptoms of pain and prevent future re-aggravation so our patients can live to their fullest ability.
A strong and stable core is an important component to preventing injury. A proper core exercise regimen can improve joint stability, decrease muscular fatigue and, most importantly, prevent injuries of the spinal column. Our patients are also given access to a HIPAA-protected exercise database that allows allows for further instruction with visual aid
The Art of the Adjustment
The art of chiropractic focuses on the chiropractic adjustment. We safely administer a high-velocity low-amplitude force to the spine in order to restore pain-free mobility by rejuvenating joints and decreasing tension within core muscle groups. Dysfunctional joints can materialize for several reasons; either by injury, nutritional deficiencies, tight and weak musculature or postural related activities of daily living.
Flexion-Distraction Therapy is doctor-controlled, hands-on spinal manipulative therapy performed most commonly by chiropractic physicians. This therapy increases spinal range of motion, stretches core musculature, reduces muscle spasms, increases blood circulation to promote healing and decreases pressure within the inter-vertebral discs. Parkrose Chiropractic utilizes this therapy by having Cox flexion distraction tables in every room.
Ice & Heat Therapy
Before treatment is administered, it is common to apply cooling or heating packs to the spinal column. We warm our hot packs in a Hydrocollator that maintains a consistent temperature of 160° F. Heat help decrease muscular tension and increase blood circulation to allow for immediate relief and a more effective spinal adjustment.
