Q&A with NCLC Presenters: Dr. Austin McMillin

Dr. McMillin's initial and ongoing interest in rehab and active care for the spine is centered on enhancing the basic chiropractic care he can provide to patients and more effectively managing a broader range of musculoskeletal conditions.

"New, evidenced-based approaches in rehab and active care for the spine and central body fit perfectly within chiropractic practice. They also help raise the bar in musculoskeletal care. They allow for better care continuum for patients and provide another level of connection to natural health care and wellness."
