I was in great deal of sciatica pain and hobbled into Dr. Hosmer's clinic. He was utmost professional, took time to get complete history and provided with some immediate relief through working some of the soft tissue. I have been going to his clinic for about 2 months and feeling great! Leah does an unbelievable massage and partners closely with Dr.Hosmer to ensure focus on needed areas for treatment. Dr Hosmer and his full staff are a crown jewel! Been to many chiropractic clinics and none have come to close to being the outstanding service and care provided here. Dr. Hosmer treats the whole patient in a very thoughtful manner. Highly recommend this clinic to help you get healthy and pain free.

Do not wait!
I've been seeing Dr. Hosmer since this past spring regarding lower back issues while cycling. This has been an ongoing problem for many years and one that I thought I could just train through. After meeting with Dr. Hosmer he quickly identified a few of the key problems and recommended a number of improvements to my riding position and stretching routine.
If you have issues with your lower back I would immediately contact Dr. Hosmer. After the bike fit and a few treatments I noticed immediate improvements. What I really appreciate about Dr. Hosmer's services is that he provided stretching and strengthening routines that I could do on my own time. The fact that Dr. Hosmer is an accomplished cyclist himself provided a key understanding of the mechanisms involved in cycling and how best to go about alleviating my lower back issues. Thank you Dr. Hosmer!

This place is amazing – magical even! I walked in sore and limping and walked out feeling like a million dollars! I was visiting Portland and made the mistake of impulsively running a 1/2 marathon! Needles to say I was sore AND I injured my foot, I was in a terrible state. I hobbled into Hosmer's and was greeted by friendly staff willing to help. They got me an appointment for a massage the same day and even called my insurance company for me. I received an excellent and healing massage from Hillary, she was attentive, targeted the massage to my post run soreness and really helped me recover. I walked out that massage feelings glorious! After the massage Dr. Hosmer offered to take a look at my foot, free of charge! After chatting a bit he provided an adjusted and my foot was instantly 100% better! It was amazing. Dr. Hosmer also gave me shoe tips and running suggestions and offered to consult with any chiropractor when I returned home. My experience there was stellar, every one was super helpful, friendly and professional. Thanks Hosmer for restoring my vacation in Portland!

Excellent all-around care, friendly Staff!
I have seen Dr. Hosmer and staff for several different things and have had an excellent experience. The chiro, massage, and strength training classes have exceeded my expectations. I have gained relief from chronic back pain since being seen by HCH with a combination of massage, adjustments, stretching, strength training, foam rolling, pressure point ball therapy, and more! Dr. Seth has worked hard on getting me educated on my injuries and bad habbits has helped me with a home treatment plan as well. They are very friendly and flexible. They also provide more than traditional chiroptractic services such as yoga, bike fittings, kettlebell training, etc. which is great. I highly recommend!!!

Honest diagnosis and great results!
After trying to play through ever increasing foot and heel pain for a number of months, I decided to seek treatment. I did some poking around the internet for a local sports therapist and happened across Dr. Hosmer's website, whose previous office location was, incidentally, less than a block from my workplace. In any case, he was easily able to confirm my fears that I was suffering from a fairly bad case of plantar fasciitis and gave me some exercises and good advice that I could use right away to get me on my way to recovery. I continued to visit his office for a month or two for that condition and some nagging lower back tightness and in both cases his treatments and advice were spot on. I've had no qualms about recommending his practice to friends who have either injured themselves in sports or who have some chronic issues they want advice or treatment for. Oh, and he's a really nice and friendly person too.

Keeping the Body Moving!
As a busy litigator with complex cases, I spend long hours hunched over my desk. As a 50+ age group defending national champion track bike racer, I need lots of training including regular high intensity workouts. As a husband and father of three great kids, I lack the necessary time to decompress from work and training and always feel like I push things to and beyond the edge. Sports Injury treatment with Dr. Seth Hosmer has helped me recover from injury and perform at my best, and Yoga with Uma helps keep me rolling smooth in my endeavors!

TRIED and TRUE
Seth Hosmer has been an invaluable Coach and mentor to be since December 2003. His style and approach to the sport of Triathlon mesh perfectly with my attitude and goals. There is a silent confidence about Seth that translates into the same belief in yourself. His expert cycling knowledge is reflected in his admirable racing results, validating his coaching of others. In addition, he is focused on nutrition and strength training, both of which are critical pieces in the Sport of Triathlon. Seth has proven easy to work with and flexible. He designs my training schedule within the time constraints I give him, and never pressures me to do more than I can handle in the busy lifestyle of mother, wife, and career person. He is dependable, and quickly responds to an e-mail if needed. His sense of humor helps pave the road during training’s inevitable ups and downs, and reminds me of the "big picture". I highly respect and trust Seth's judgment, and have consistently improved under his tutelage. I have evolved from a mediocre athlete to a proud member of Team USA attending the 2008 World Championships in both the Short and Long course distances. Thank you Seth for experiences beyond my wildest expectations!! Well done !!!!

Bringing it all Together
Dr. Hosmer’s practice is definitely worth checking out. I went to Seth a few months ago for some serious on-the-bike alignment and muscle pain/fatigue issues. Seth was able to quickly diagnose the problems, provide treatment and exercises to help me with the musculo-skeletal issues, and make related adjustments to my bike fit. It was perfect (and seems almost essential) to have both chiropractic care and bike fit all in one place, and having a practitioner that is also a (very) competitive cyclist made a huge difference.

If you feel out of whack on the bike or just want to make sure you are maximizing your power, Dr. Hosmer can help. He completely changed my fit to create a more efficient pedal stroke, and he also revamped my training program. There is a reason he is one of the best riders in the Oregon. Talk to him about coaching and get a bike fit. It's worth it.

HPC Treatment Results
There is no such thing as too much publicity for something that works. I had a really debilitating knee surgery last year that had me off the bike for about 13 months. With numerous referrals, physical therapy sessions, massage, chinese medicine and other rehabilitation services, I should have been better and racing. But I wasn't. I don't know why I waited so long to talk to Dr. Hosmer. His individual attention to his patients, his cutting-edge medical and technological innovations for treatments, his informative approach to biomechanics of bike and body, and his own personal experience and knowledge as a coach, cyclist and former triathlete all combine for effective and real RESULTS. After having worked with him for a relatively short time, my knee pain has disappeared for good, and through his coaching, I feel like this will be my strongest season ever. Whether it's nagging joint pain, questions about racing, wanting to get in touch with the modern marvels of advanced training, or whatever - this is your guy.
