My name is Dr. Christopher Akin. As a chiropractor, it is my goal to reach, help, and educate as many people as possible on the positive effects that chiropractic care can have on their health, wellness, and quality of life.
I am a graduate of Life Chiropractic College West and a Turlock native. I did my undergraduate studies at Cal State Stanislaus in biology. Originally pre-med, I had a life changing experience with Chiropractic care.
After 4 years at Life Chiropractic College I’m back in Turlock to reach out and educate the community on the profound, positive effects that chiropractic can have on their health, wellness and quality of life.
As an intern I worked with very difficult chronic conditions such as Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Asthma. These patients saw a significant reduction in their symptoms. I also enjoyed working with children with ADD and ADHD as well as pregnant mothers and their newborns.
I am also the only Active Release Techniques (A.R.T) provider in the Central Valley. Active Release Technique is a soft tissue treatment that involves treating the muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
A.R.T. is used to treat anyone from professional athletes, to law enforcement officers, to teachers for their conditions. Not only does it work extremely well for athletes, but individuals have gotten permanent and quick results with shoulder issues, carpal tunnel, neck pain, plantar fascitis, sciatica and many other conditions.
