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. In October 2014 he was 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 most integral part of a patient’s treatment, ancillary treatments over and above the adjustment get his patients better, quicker.
Verified Patient Reviews
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 of us not in a medical profession why things ache and how the body works, bringing a more fuller understanding of the treatments post-appointment
Very helpful and knows what he is doing.
My appointment was very quick and easy. The treatment was effective and helpful.
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.
