At Collins Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our office.
We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Gerald Collins and Dr. Kristen Machen have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Disc bulges, protrusions, herniations or "slipped discs" can be very painful. Often there is associated leg or arm pain or pain in the shoulder or hip. If you are dealing with chronic pain and don't know if it is disc related, let us check you out. Disc disorders are easily identified. Disc decompression is a non-invasive technique and many patients show vast improvement. Our personal approach in dealing with disc disorders combines Chiropractic care along with disc decompression, ultrasound, interferrential therapy, along with therapeutic exercise.

Acupuncture is to promote and restore the balance of energy, which flows throughout the body, the benefits of acupuncture can extend to a wide variety of conditions, from emotional disorders to digestive complaints.

It can also be helpful in treating neurological problems like migraines or Parkinson's or as a rehabilitation strategy for individuals who suffered a stroke.
