Chiropractor St Paul MN

Twin Cities Headache Neck & Back

Welcome to Twin Cities Headache Neck & Back located in St. Paul. Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what it's all about. Dr. Matthew Collins has extensive post-graduate education and credentials in imaging, spinal trauma, and rehabilitation along with years of accumulated experience. This article is here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our St Paul MN chiropractor can help you and your family.

Twin Cities Headache Neck & Back is a Primary Spine Care clinic, with an emphasis on spinal injury and rehabilitation. Primary Spine Care is focused on being the first line referral option for the diagnosis and management of a broad range of spine related conditions, with the exception of clear emergencies such as fracture, cancer and infection. We diagnose and manage spinal pain, injury and other spinal conditions. We provide non-surgical, evidence-based care to minimize pain while accelerating recovery from injuries or chronic conditions.


After taking your health history into account, your chiropractor will perform a physical examination. Your chiropractor may feel your spine, joints, and examine your range of motion.


A chiropractic exam will be thorough and may include X-rays, orthopedic tests, and neurological tests.

Spinal Exam

To determine what parts of your spine would require chiropractic treatment, your chiropractor will likely use a palpation technique to find what areas of your spine's mobility are restricted.


Many healthcare providers employ the use of x-rays for diagnostic purposes, including chiropractors. They are useful in helping identify the source of a problem, its potential severity, and potentially guiding the course of treatment.

chiropractic evaluation & Care

A chiropractic evaluation is one of the best initial steps for spinal injury, neck pain and back pain. Patients can have a rapid diagnosis and early conservative treatment, often without the needs of drugs, surgery or injections.

The current scientific literature verifies that chiropractic, when utilized as the first provider significantly reduces disability in the workplace, reduces overall pain, prevents recurring injuries and improves function in almost every aspect of life. The scientific literature reports that when chiropractic is considered as a first option for spine care, the need and use of opiates decreases.

New patients receive a comprehensive history and thorough evaluation of their area of complaint. If clinically necessary, imaging such as x-ray and or MRI will be ordered to reach an accurate diagnosis, prognosis and treatment plan. Some spine conditions require a team approach and at Twin Cities Headache Neck & Back we will co-manage with appropriate medical specialists in the fields of neurology, pain management, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery and other related professions.
