He also carried out extensive spinal trauma advanced course work through Jacobs school of Medicine in New York at Buffalo, and is continually updating his skill set.

Dr. Adamson's Philosophy

Dr. Adamson believes that there is more to chiropractic than the relief of headaches and back pain. His primary focus is the treatment of vertebral subluxation and the integrity of your nervous system, which controls every cell and tissue of your body.

Dr. Adamson addresses the entire spine through a few very specific protocols such as the upper cervical care of Blair, Gonstead, Diversified, Thompson, and Lumbar Flexion Distraction. Patients of Kinexis Chiropractic get a series of full spine digital X-rays taken on the initial visit along with the initial consultation. X-rays are analyzed for medical reasons and chiropractic line analysis of the spine. The X-ray line analysis results are consulted every treatment visit for continued precise chiropractic treatment. 

Dr. Adamson loves providing care to his patients and takes a very active role in their overall health care. He enjoys spending time on the beach and in the water with his three sons. A multisport athlete through his early adult life, Dr. Adamson is currently a national and world champion powerlifter, and has been competing since the age of 16 years old. Dr. Adamson is very active in the community by providing care to area youth, high school, collegiate, professional, and recreational level athletes, for which he has been further recognized with various Leadership and Community Service awards.
