For Crossroads Chiropractic’s Dr. Amanda Tipton Stiller, the path to helping patients eliminate pain began in a high school marching band with a tuba slung around her body.

“I was a rather small teenager, and I herniated a disc very badly (carrying it),” she said. 

The injury first slowed, then brought her marching band and dance days to a halt, but the stubborn teen continued to refuse treatment until the pain was so acute, she couldn’t walk. 

After one chiropractic appointment, she was on her feet again, and though she didn’t know it at the time, she was on her way to a career.

“I walked out of the chiropractor’s office after begrudgingly going,” she said. The experience was a life changer.

With continued visits, Tipton Stiller made her way back to ballet and band and became passionate about providing the type of care that was integral to her recovery.

“I want to help people become pain-free in a way that’s non-invasive, in the way I was helped,” she said, describing chiropractic adjustments as “eliminating any nerve interference that might be going on in the body and allowing your body the tools it needs to function optimally.”

Tipon Stiller graduated from the University of Western States in 2014 and practiced in the Metro area for about a decade before buying Crossroads Chiropractic last year.

She treats a wide spectrum of patients, from expecting mothers to athletes, for a variety of aches and injuries. Despite its association with spinal injuries, chiropractic work can also help relieve pain and restore mobility to hips, hands, shoulders, ankles, and other joints.

Outside the clinic, Tipton Stiller, who’s currently serving as vice president of the Oregon Chiropractic Association, incorporated her lifelong love of dance into her work as a volunteer practitioner with Oregon Ballet Theater.

A decade into her career, Tipton Stiller says her greatest satisfaction still comes from seeing patients experience the same relief that surprised her as a reluctant teen patient.

“I love watching that process with other people. Watching their mood change, watching how their walk changes,” she said. “Watching them be able to live their lives to the fullest again is just so rewarding.”
