Dr. Colin Mackay

As a Chiropractor with experience, Dr. Mackay is committed to promoting the health and well-being of his patients. Dr. Mackay uses a “whole person approach” to determine what each patient requires. This individualized approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make appropriate interventions and lifestyle adjustments to optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Mackay is able to help you to accelerate and / or maintain your journey to optimal health. Once the cause is determined and treatment is rendered, the patient will be re-evaluated in 3 to 4 weeks where treatment will eventually be scaled down to maintain the patients wellness. Continual treatment will be tailored specifically to the patient’s future needs taking a “Proactive approach rather than the typical Reactive one!”. Dr. Mackay specializes in sports injuries and rehabilitation. His passion for sports stems from his amateur athletic career growing up in Canada playing hockey and lacrosse for years. He attributes his longevity in being able to still take part in sports to his years of receiving chiropractic care.

Away from the practice, Dr. Mackay’s interests include golfing, hockey and shuttling his three children to the various sports. Dr. Mackay resides in San Diego and spends most of his personal time with his wife Dr. Sarah, and three children.

Dr. Mackay’s clinical proficiency and caring touch are just a part of why he is so valued at SDARC Wellness Center.
