Meet the Doc

Dr. Colby at Alyeska small

Dr. Colby grew up in Othello, WA, a small town deep in the heart of the Central Washington desert.  He was an athlete, playing both basketball and football and trying to eat his family out of house and home!

After high school, he moved to Spokane where he attended ITT Tech, became a draftsman and continued playing on men’s league basketball team.  He intended to get a few years of experience drafting before pursuing a degree engineering.

Then, fate stepped in; Dr. Karl Smith D.C. saw a promising chiropractor in his younger cousin, and suggested Dr. Colby shadow him for a few days.  In chiropractic, Dr. Colby found a way to combine his interest in how things work (biomechanics) with an ability to help people improve their lives.  He moved to the San Francisco area and began his chiropractic studies.  Dr. Colby graduated from Life Chiropractic College West in 2007.  After graduating, he moved back to Spokane and went to work honing his skills.

On a trip to Anchorage in February 2012, Dr. Colby fell in love with Alaska and set out on a mission to move up.  Everything came together at the end of the year, and on December 3, 2012, Alaska Chiropractic Care embraced a new owner and a new name, “Midtown Chiropractic.”
