The Doctor

Dr. Christian Augustin, D.C doc

Doctor of Chiropractic

Hi everyone. My name is Christian Augustin and I was born in Ontario, Canada. I have been a chiropractor for 20 years. I spent time in Atlanta, before studying Chiropractic medicine at Logan University In Chesterfield, Missouri where I graduated summa cum laude in 1999 with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. After graduation, I moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado or God's country where I set up practice. For several years in Colorado, I became well known for my skills in chiropractic medicine. I spent a number of years focusing on personal injury from accidents and perfected what was necessary in order to help my patients heal. I also perfected techniques in sports and exercise injuries. I became proficient in exercise therapy, laser treatments, ultra sound, and e-stem therapies. All of these aid in optimal recovery times. My goal was and still is to get my patients living happy, healthy, and pain free while increasing their qualilty of life. These are skils I perfected while in Colorado and have brought my expertise and knowledge to Fairhope, Alabama.

After several years in Colorado, I relocated my practice to Fairhope, Alabama in order to be closer to family. It was a joy watching my children grow up in the proximity of family. Having the beach a few miles away certainly doesn't hurt either! The Eastern Shore is another area that I consider God's country. This area is the perfect setting to raise a family or to enjoy life at a relaxing pace. Fairhope is like a beautful postcard that has provided a place to fish, ride bikes along the shore lone, watch kids play sports, or to take a evening stroll by the bay at sunset. I have fallen in love with this area and the people that make the Eastern Shore home. Because this area is the perfect setting for a relaxing life, you will see me around town doing activties that I love like playing soccer, coaching soccer, riding my bike, fishing, working out at the gym, or grabbing coffee at a local coffee shop. While here I have gained the franchise for Chirothin Weight Loss. I offer this fast paced weight loss program in the office. I now have extensive knowledge of nutriton and and supplements. We carry a variety of natural supplemnts and vitamins in our office. Another thing that I love about the Eastern Shore is that the residents are actively involved in their health and wellness, and I love partnering with them to meet their goals.

On a more serious note, I would like to explain my philosophy when it comes to the treatment of the human body. I always believe one should use a conservative, non-invasive treatment when possible and prudent. This limits unwanted side effects and usually decreases the costs of treatment. It is not always prudent, possible, and wise to use conservative care. Aggressive infections, cancer, life threatening illness, and serious injuries always need invasive therapy and if uncovered in this office will always result in an immediate referral to the appropriate medical specialist, the ER, or 911 if necessary.

Most injuries are not life threatening and in many cases respond well to conservative care with very few side effects. In Colorado I treated a variety of injuries and conditions stemming from sports, motor vehicle accidents, repetitive use and old age. Just to list a few, I would include back pain, shoulder pain, tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, golfer's elbow, tennis elbow, tension headaches, migraines, carpal tunnel and many more. Treatments provided included laser therapy, spinal manipulation, extremity adjusting, physical therapy and modalities, taping and more.

I am very excited to also introduce Class IV Low Level Laser therapy as an option. This therapy was given FDA approval for pain management in 2005 and has been shown to have significant effects on healing. It is so popular that professional sports teams and Olympic teams have started using them routinely on their athletes. The laser that I will feature in my office is used by the New York Yankees, Houston Astros, Detroit Tigers and now the Auburn Tigers. Please call and ask to speak to me directly if you would like to learn more about laser therapy. Remember it is for healing, and even though it works extremely well for sports injuries, that is only the tip of the iceberg.

If you have any questions I will always try to make myself available to answer your questions. Take advantage of our free initial consultation and sit down with me and we will discuss your options.

Yours in health,

Christian Augustin D.C.
