Dr. Maxwell's message is a simple one; he care about healing you, the patient, as soon as possible. As an Olympian and lifelong athlete, Gavin understands that an injury is a disruption in your daily life and sporting goals and incurs your time and money to seek treatment. His focus is to listen to you in order to diagnose your complaint, explain your condition/injury and design a treatment plan to help resolve and minimize recurrence of your injury in as little visits as possible so you can get back to your busy schedule and save your hard earned money for future services. As a professional athlete, Dr. Gavin competed in the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, he combines his love of sports with a deep understanding of the intricate human body from his education in kinesiology and chiropractic to deliver personalize treatment solutions that include manual therapy, medical acupuncture and exercise protocols to treat the root of your condition. In some cases you may simply be referred to another health professional because that’s the best treatment he could recommend.
