ABOUT US


OUR GOALS


A DOCTOR YOU CAN TRUST

As one of a select few active Board Certified Chiropractic Functional Neurologists in Colorado, Dr. Paul Austin provides high quality health and wellness care. He believes in developing a deep understanding of his patients, in order to give them the power to heal.


CONTROLLING INFLAMMATION

We believe that inflammation is a root cause of most health conditions our patients experience. The key to achieving optimal wellness is to identify and address the real source of your symptoms and “dis-ease.”


FUNCTIONAL WELLNESS

Dr. Paul Austin will create a personalized plan that is tailored to you. After an initial exam, he will recommend specific therapies to improve how your body and brain communicate and perform, while addressing underlying inflammation and pain.


PATIENT-CENTERED

We embrace an approach centered around YOU—respectful of and responsive to your preferences, needs, values and goals (NOT centered around disease). We encourage you to take an active role in orchestrating your Functional Wellness Plan.

DR. AUSTIN’S JOURNEY

Dr. Austin’s credo is to continually grow in knowledge and best practices in many different areas of chiropractic, functional neurology, nutrition and holistic care. He has participated in close to 1500 hours of post-graduate specialty education—holding a degree as a Board Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP), becoming Board Certified in Chiropractic Functional Neurology (DACNB), and trainings which integrate Functional Medicine and Nutrition with Functional Neurology and Sports Medicine. Dr. Austin has learned the most effective tools/techniques for working with patients who may have difficult and frustrating conditions that haven’t responded to traditional chiropractic or medical care.

At the core of Dr. Austin’s passion for helping patients through their wellness journeys is how he healed his own autoimmune symptoms.  As a child, Dr. Austin suffered from chronic sinusitis (which his mother told him was from allergies he had inherited from her). Hypoglycemia struck in his early 20s, which was resolved when a Holistic MD urged him to drink less alcohol, eat healthier, juice vegetables and fruits, and take supplements.  He suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) intermittently between his 30s and 50s, and also developed joint pain, migraines, eczema and psoriasis. After finally getting tested for food sensitivity to gluten and dairy, Dr. Austin eliminated just these two food groups—within 6 weeks his sinuses were clear, in 3 months the IBS was gone, and by 9 months his skin was clear.



TREATING THE WHOLE PERSON

Even for patients who are seeking traditional chiropractic care, Dr. Austin believes in treating the whole person, where optimal health is achieved through Functional Wellness—meaning all the bodily systems are working cooperatively at their highest levels.

When there is dysfunction or pain in one area, it may be connected to dysfunction or pain to other areas of the body and brain. A well researched example is the Brain-Gut connection: a concussion caused by an auto or bike accident can cause severe intestinal dysfunction, and vice versa.

Dr. Austin is an avid lover of the outdoors. He plays tennis competitively, hikes 14ers, runs, bikes, and loves to travel when he can. He has been married to his wife Amy for over 3 decades, and they have 2 adult children.

If you want a genuinely compassionate, passionate and knowledgeable partner on your quest for greater health and well-being, Dr. Austin is eager to join you!

A Testimonial From One of Our Patients


Dr. Austin is one of my favorite people in the whole world. I have been working with him for 4 months now to help me recover from a traumatic brain injury and post-concussion syndrome. He is a walking encyclopedia, and I wish I could download the knowledge from his brain to mine. He is also the most compassionate, enthusiastic, supportive, and genuinely kindhearted doctor I have ever encountered. He will do everything in his power to help you heal! I have made huge strides in my recovery in the past 4 months, and I am eternally grateful for his work.
