As an osteopath I treat specific problems in the context of the person as a whole.
As a physiatrist I recognize disabilities, whether temporary or permanent, as challenges to met as you restore ability to be productive and enjoy life.
This develops a customized treatment plan for each patient.
Kevin J. Kane D.O. has worked in Southeast Portland since 1997 after completing a residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. As an osteopath, his orientation is to treat specific problems in the context of the person as a whole. Most of his patients are injured workers. He applies his skills in spinal manipulation, therapeutic stretching and strengthening, and instruction in good body mechanics. He employs medications, supplements, and other modalities such as acupuncture to control pain and restore health. He also uses injections into muscles, joints, or the spine to reduce pain.
