Dr. Chris Edginton, DC

Chiropractor

Professional statement

Dr. Edginton has been in practice since graduating from The National University of Health Sciences in 2001. He has a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, and a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from the National College of Chiropractic. He is certified in MDT, commonly known as the McKenzie Method. Additionally, he is accredited by the federal government as a Registered Medical Examiner for the Department of Transportation. Since graduating from Chiropractic school, Dr. Chris has worked in a mix of hospital settings, in private practice alongside medical colleagues, and in Chiropractic clinics with Physical Therapy services. This variety has lent itself to a wide variety of patient experiences and conditions treated, from sports injuries to chronic aches and pains to spinal disc herniations. Specific to the American Back Center, Dr. Chris has years experience with VaxD Spinal Decompression, which is a non-surgical treatment for herniated spinal discs in the neck and low back. His VaxD patients are often looking to avoid surgery. He has treated discs that cause mild but chronic pain to extruded discs that are often more acute and severely painful. Dr. Chris’ approach often uses a combination of VaxD and Physical Therapy for maximum results. With his additional training in Acupuncture and Athletic Taping protocols, and his experience with a multi-disciplinary approach, Dr. Chris’ treatment is customized to the patient and presentation. While the Chiropractic adjustment remains the an integral part of a patient’s treatment, ancillary treatments over and above the adjustment get his patients better, quicker.

Very thorough and pleasant. I felt very comfortable with him. It was the first time, in many months, that I was hopeful that my condition would improve.

Chris is a good Dr. and he is very easy to work with. I have seen a lot of Chiropractors over my life for a bad back. Its something that I may never be over, but I have found in Chrissomeone who is both helpful in managing the discomfort but can easily work around my schedule. I highly recommend him to you

Dr. Chris made the appointment super personalized and really listened to all my pain points adjusting our time together based off the first 10-minute questioning portion of our appointment. He also does an amazing job explaining to those ofus not in a medical profession why things ache and how the body works, bringing a more fuller understanding of the treatments post-appointment

I went through a treatment with Dr. Chris for a painful disc problem. The experience was really great and I had a fast recovery. The Vax-D machine works wonders.
