When it comes to chiropractic care, treatment includes assessment, manual manipulation, prevention, and education.
The body is an intelligent, strong, and resilient functional unit. Pain is an alert signal from the body! The signal tells the brain that something is out of balance and needs immediate attention!
The majority of conditions seen by today’s manual practitioners are those of long standing origin. This means that the condition is due to repetitive strain and cumulative trauma. In these situations pain presents after months or years of minute imbalances. However, pain can also present after a single event that pushes the injury over the pain threshold.
When working with a patient, Dr. Colin believes that it is essential to have a strong understanding of the functional and applied anatomy in order to effectively diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions.
Pulling together results from orthopedic testing, neurological screening, gait and biomechanical assessments, as well as a systematic approach to soft tissue palpation, Dr. Colin can specifically isolate structures that cause pain and imbalances in the musculoskeletal system.
A treatment plan is then customized to correct the imbalances causing the pain. Dr. Colin uses a combination of proven treatment and rehabilitation techniques, including Active Release Techniques®, to keep your body functioning optimally and pain free.
Dr. Colin works to give you the best chiropractic care so that you can focus on giving your best at work and in your daily activities!
