Meet Dr. Colby Smith

Dr. Colby experienced the benefits of chiropractic care in addressing different sports injuries he sustained in high school. As he also had chiropractors in his extended family he was inspired to become a chiropractor—a natural fit for him!

“When I switched career paths, I found that my engineering background and natural curiosity regarding how things work are significant assets when addressing many of the conditions we see daily.” Dr. Colby enjoys the challenges of being a chiropractor and finds it rewarding to make a difference in someone’s life.
