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. "It’s my opinion that the chiropractic profession should be leading the way in improving functional musculoskeletal care, especially as it relates to the spine in central body fitness," he writes. "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."
