Upper Cervical Care Specialist

Dr. Kyle Collins

“My favorite thing about Chiropractic? Helping patients get their lives back!”
Dr. Collins

Dr. Kyle Collins graduated from Arizona State University. He then pursued his passion and received his Doctorate from the Life Chiropractic College West in the California Bay area. Later he then continued his education in Upper Cervical Care.

Dr. Collins believes there is nothing more fulfilling for him than to see his patients’ lives changed by empowering them to take responsibility of their own health. “As a Chiropractor, my job is to educate patients on how to maximize their health potential. Allowing them to express health the way their body was intended. It’s a lifestyle… Its not a gimmick, pill, potion or lotion… We create long lasting true health changes that allow people to not only feel better, but to function better. The common perception is that if we are symptom free then we must be healthy… Nothing can be further from the truth.. I believe that is one of the main reasons our healthcare system is in the position it is today. Our model of health and how to achieve it is wrong. We need a new model. One that’s actually based on the workings of the human body that if embraced has the ability to change your life and the lives of the people around you”.

Dr. Kyle Collins is the youngest of five siblings. Dr. Collins is married to Courtney and they have a daughter named Madison. In his free time he loves to spend time with his family, cook healthy meals and golf!
