About Dr. Collins
Hello! My name is Dr. Michael Collins and I have been a Chiropractor since 2008.
As my parents before me, I've been in the Springfield area all my life. Since my father is a cardiologist, I was always drawn to the healthcare field. Several of my brothers and sisters became registered nurses and due to their influence, I knew that was the field for me.
I've been a registered nurse since 1994, working in some local hospitals, with dialysis as my specialty. I was always looking for a more natural way to improve people's health and now with chiropractic, I can!
Living with chronic pain from a high school wrestling injury made it tough for me to do my nursing duties. A friend told me about a Chiropractor he was seeing and I thought, it couldn't hurt. After a short time of chiropractic adjustments, I was amazed at how good my low back felt, even with increased activity.
It was at that time I realized this is how I can help give people back their life, just as I was given back mine.
The POWER OF CHIROPRACTIC is what I want to give you.
