We care about the in-between transactions. We are interested in preventing problems before they occur. It is, therefore, necessary to not only check-in when you are in pain, but more importantly when you are not in pain, so we can encourage and prevent problems before they occur or worsen.  Dr. Christian focuses on holistic care helping patients create simple strategies they can carry out to manage pain and improve function. He believes in a more individualized approach to pain management. By taking the time to get to know every patient that walks through the door, he is able to create a unique and effective treatment plan for each individual.

"My wife experienced a concussion in a car accident a few years back and was treated by Dr. Christian. She could not move her neck left or right for a month along with terrible pain and headaches, which led to vision problems. From her first visit, Dr. Christian helped her get her neck moving side to side again. From that point until now, she feels that after going through all that, she has a normal life today thanks to his treatment. He truly cares about the patients, they are not just numbers or statistics to him. She is totally grateful to him for getting the pain under control and now at his new practice, the peptide therapy has helped her get her Polycystic Ovary Syndrome under control. This helps her with weight loss (down 58 pounds), and the PCOS symptoms have almost disappeared. She is grateful to have an amazing physician like him in her life, we are both very thankful for everything he has done for us!"
