On field injuries can be scary. Dr. Colby knows what to do and how to do it when it matters most. In addition to sprains, strains and breaks, he’s trained to identify and handle concussions and spinal injuries. He’ll work to keep you safe and get you where you need to be without causing further injury.

FMS™is one of the simplest, most reliable, injury prevention programs available. In just minutes a day, you can correct your fundamental movement patterns and reduce your likelihood of injury.
CCSPs are your fastest route to answers. They are experts in diagnosis, treatment and the prevention of future injuries.

Also, being seen by a Chiropractor first, greatly reduces the cost of treatment. Dr. Colby can usually have you healthy and back in the game for less than initial diagnostic costs associated with seeing an MD first for the same injury.
