The two adjusting techniques we specialize in at Novel Chiropractic are among the most up-to-date functional, scientific, and neurologically based models. These techniques have been shown to produce the highest outcomes in biomechanical and neurological improvement.
- Upper Cervical Chiropractic - It is estimated that of the 100,000 chiropractors in the world approximately 1,800 of those specialize in Upper Cervical Chiropractic. Dr. Collins has earned over 200 additional hours in advanced post-graduate upper cervical training and certification. Part of this training involved traveling to San Salvador, El Salvador to provide care and service for the community in Santo Tomas.
- Torque Release Technique - Torque Release is among the newest, most effective, and well-studied techniques in the field. Dr. Collins has earned over 100 additional hours in advanced training and certification in the technique. Torque Release involves using The Integrator, an FDA approved, torque and recoil release adjusting instrument which provides a gentle and clinically reproducible adjustment appropriate for all ages.
specific chiropractic adjusting
A specific chiropractic adjustment is delivered only when nervous system dysfunction is present as indicated by paraspinal thermography. When clinically necessary, the adjustment is made to the spine to restore integrity within the nervous system. Following the adjustment, the patient undergoes a post-adjustment neural recuperation in a zero-gravity position; after which, another thermograph is used to confirm that the correction has been made. The correction allows the body to restore proper communication between the brain and cells throughout the body.
computed infrared paraspinal thermography
Thermography is a medical technology that is FDA approved as a neurodiagnostic procedure. In our office, this technology is utilized by scanning a temperature sensitive device over the spine. A computerized analysis produces a graph which reveals dysfunction in the nervous system. This procedure is used on every visit to objectively monitor the course of patient care.
precision laser aligned digital x-ray
Unique to the private chiropractic office, Novel Chiropractic utilizes state-of-the-art technology with precision laser-aligned digital radiography for the most accurate and effective x-ray available today. X-ray images are taken and analyzed by the doctor to determine the three-dimensional displacement of the upper cervical vertebrae. Be assured that radiological examinations are performed only when clinically necessary to ensure proper patient care.
initial examinations | 250.00
Initial testing occurs over 2-3 visits and involves a full history review, a comprehensive examination, muscle, sensory, orthopedic and neurological testing, thermographic scans, a detailed spinal examination, range of motion tests, a postural examination, and x-rays if needed.
plan of care | case dependent
Length and frequency of care programs vary and are case dependent. Care programs are tailored on an individual basis and designed to implement wellness goals specific to each client. Care programs are based on regular office fees which are 70.00 per visit and 100.00 for re-exams. An explanation of recommended care is included as a part of your initial evaluation.

As I approached middle age, I became increasingly plagued by stiffness, joint pain and other aches and pains of life. From the very first appointment, I was impressed with the meticulous scrutiny Dr. Collins gave to my overall health, and was convinced that his goal was simple: get me on the path towards total-body healing and well-being. His passion for seeing that I had exactly the care I needed completely erased any negative feelings I previously had toward chiropractic care. I have been amazed at how the attention Dr. Collins gave to critical areas (particularly upper cervical) addressed issues throughout my body that I had lived with for years. I can say with certainty that I have never felt better.

As a client of Dr. Collins, I was always pleased with his attention to detail. He listened to whatever current state I was in and compared it to what he was finding in my spine. I have been to other chiropractors before, and I prefer a doctor who observes respectfully and who talks about his approach with me. Dr. Collins is thoughtful of this. I could see that his goal was to improve the overall health of his clients quickly with a course that allows the body to heal itself with the correct adjustments. His focus was not on adjusting up and down the spine generally, but on a few specific adjustments that would make it all fall into the right place.

I have always been curious about chiropractic care, and finally decided to give it a try when I met Dr. Collins. I began chiropractic care at the end of July, last year. I was interested in learning how to stay healthy, and Dr. Collins was a wonderful guide. He walked me through every process, explaining each step, and answering any questions that I had. While I was excited for Dr. Collins to make his big move to Chattanooga, I was sad to see him go. I feel confident that he will continue his excellent care for his new patients to come.
