The body is an intelligent, strong, and resilient functional unit. Many people do not realize that pain is the signal from the anatomical structures telling the brain that something is out of balance and needs attention. The majority of conditions seen by today's manual practitioner are those of long standing origin, such as repetitive strain injury and cumulative trauma. In these situations pain presents after months or years of minute imbalances, or after a single event 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. They will get to the cause of the problem, so you can focus on giving your best in whatever work, sport, or daily activity you are participating in.
