For as long as he can recall, Dr Christianson wanted to help people feel better through chiropractic care and fitness. His primary focus is helping patients become more physically active in their lives. This includes helping people get out of pain and enjoy their sport or recreational activity. Dr Christianson’s specialty is helping soft-tissue injuries (muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, nerves) specifically developed through athletic or occupational stress or repetitive motion (running, cycling, swimming, lifting or work). His goal is to see his patients achieve a quick recovery then help to support their wellness 5, 10 or 30 years down the road.

Andrea in her own words: “I’m from Denver and I go to school in Colorado Springs at UCCS. In December I will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Health Care Science with an emphasis in Health and Wellness Promotion. I will also have a minor in Nutrition. I currently have an ACSM group fitness certification and I am working on a “nutrition holistic health coach”. My favorite thing to do is scope out new coffee shops and test their chai teas! I also love doing anything outdoors. The reason I went into the health industry in the first place was because I was a student athlete in high school (cross country) and once I got to college I stopped working out and ate fast food all the time. I gained 60 pounds in 6 months and had hypertension, high blood pressure, and was pre-diabetic. That was a big wake up call, so I changed my lifestyle around and lost the weight. I then decided I wanted to help people change theirs to help them achieve optimal health and wellness.”
