A Different Approach:
As Colorado Springs’ only certified Chiropractic Sports Physician and Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner, Dr. Christie is uniquely qualified to provide a range of treatments to guide the whole body into the harmony so critical to optimal health and performance.
We offer a variety of diagnostic and care options. Functional Medicine shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a patient-centered approach that addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Chiropractic is a health care discipline that focuses on the built-in regenerative power of the body to bring healing to itself, apart from drugs or surgery. We also offer blood analysis, gait analysis, extensive diagnostic treatment along with training services for athletes. Dr. Christie encourages her patients to be proactive in their own quest for wellness. Together you can restore and maintain good health, regardless of your age or occupation.
These proven methods sharply contrast with conventional medicine's ‘band-aid’ approach of using expensive drugs that actually suppress symptoms and leave serious side-effects. Stacking one drug on top of another, a common practice of traditional medicine, escalates the very real potential for dangerous drug reactions. Using natural methods that work with your body's natural ability to repair and rebuild itself insure that you are truly moving FORWARD to optimal health rather than masking symptoms that will continue to exist and re-occur.
We Know How You Are Wired
Your nervous system is a wonderfully complex network that consists of your central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral nervous system (the nerves connected to your central system). Your brain receives, stores and sends incredible amounts of information, and the spinal cord and nerves serve as the brain’s information highways to all parts of your body. Since the spine, or vertebral column, both houses and protects the spinal cord, it plays an important role in your overall wellness.
Nerve dysfunction can result from falls, stress, tension, overuse or a number of other reasons. Any of these events can alter your ‘wiring’ and create great pain or discomfort. Still worse, without proper care, even minor alterations to the nervous system can lead to serious yet avoidable illnesses and conditions.
We Touch All the Bases
Positioning the body for self-healing involves more than adjustments to the nervous system. Because Dr. Christie believes in holistic health care, she encourages her patients to make important lifestyle changes that can lead to optimal wellness and vitality.
This involves education in the areas of diet, nutrition, fitness, ergonomics and stress management—all contributors to the state of your overall health. Individual counseling and group events are both available, so you will find it comfortable, easy and fun to start making those choices that will you improve your health regardless of your starting point.
