Dr. David Newton DC, MS, CSCS

Dr. Newton is the founder and owner of Active Performance Chiropractic. Having grown up as an athlete, Dr. Newton understands the hard work and dedication it takes to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Unfortunately, injuries often come with activity and this is where Active Performance Chiropractic is able to help.  As a neuromusculoskeletal specialist, Dr. Newton is able to evaluate an injury and determine the appropriate treatment plan to ensure an optimal recovery.  Dr. Newton's treatment often focuses on the importance of movement patterns and their contributions to various injuries over time.  This is why corrective exercise is often a large component of the treatment plan.  Without change to faulty movement, injuries can continue to occur.  Having also received his Master's degree in Sports and Exercise Science in addition to his Certified Strength and Conditioning Certification, Dr. Newton truly understands the injuries athletes of all levels deal with on a daily basis.
