Dr. Michael Curtin is a 1988 graduate of National College of Chiropractic in Chicago. He practices traditional Chiropractic which is the number one natural healing alternative to drugs and surgery. He focuses on the identification and correction of spinal misalignments called subluxations. Subluxations cause nerve interference. This nerve interference disconnects the body from the control and coordination of the Central Nervous System resulting in poor function of the organs and tissues of the body.
These weakened areas of the body are prone to injury or infection. Dr. Curtin uses his hands to adjust the spine and reduce nerve interference to help return normal function and promote healing. You are healthy when your body is functioning properly. This is because your body is a self regulating, self healing organism by design. That is the "Big Idea" of chiropractic philosophy.
In the time that Dr. Curtin has been in practice on Vashon, he has had the privilege of helping islanders like our young athletes playing football, soccer, volleyball and crew, women during and after pregnancy, ballet dancers, infants with colic, shop owners, restaurant workers, grocery clerks, ferry workers, horseback riders, health care providers, firefighters and many more people from a wide cross section of our island family.
