Dr. Borgardt was initially guided toward the chiropractic profession, and sports related injury treatment in particular, after receiving chiropractic care for a sport related shoulder injury in high school. In addition to specializing in sport related care, Dr. Borgardt also specializes in pain treatment related to auto accidents and common work-related injuries such as carpal tunnel, and sports related injuries like tennis elbow and plantar fasciitis. His use of advanced myofascial techniques, kinesiologic taping, and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization allows Dr. Borgardt to treat a wide variety of conditions from extremity injuries, post-surgical scar tissue removal to standard musculoskeletal low back pain. Integrating these therapeutic options with traditional chiropractic manipulation puts Dr. Borgardt in a very unique position to treat his patients with the most current evidence-based therapies available for musculoskeletal conditions. 

As a Portland chiropractor, Dr. Borgardt is friendly and approachable. He focuses on pain management and improving function while having fun doing it. He believes that as a patient, you should enjoy coming to treatment and most importantly the benefits after treatment. Patient education is very important to Dr. Borgardt, that’s why he takes the extra time to ensure that as one of his patient’s, you fully understand the nature of your injury and how the treatment will help.

In his spare time Dr. Borgardt can be found spending time with his wife and two daughters, running through the neighborhood, or playing golf when time allows.
