In his free time he enjoys cycling of all disciplines, hiking, flying, playing guitar, reading, and spending time with his wife and new daughter.
Dr. Drew Illman can also be found teaching at Front Range Community College, where he is an adjunct physiology professor.
Dr. Christine Illman, DC
Dr. Chris’s passion is caring for pregnant mothers and children. She has had an additional 2 years of training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and has undergone training in prenatal pelvic function through the Institute of Birth Healing. Dr. Illman is a certified Webster Technique practitioner, which is a special technique used for adjusting pregnant women to help balance the sacrum and pelvis leading to more comfort during pregnancy and even a shorter labor and delivery.
Dr. Chris practices full spectrum chiropractic and uses a variety of techniques to adjust patients including Diversified, drop table, SOT, Thompson, Logan and Activator. While adjustments are very important, Dr. Chris will also address the muscular components of pain by using Trigger Point Therapy (working on the knots in muscles), Graston Technique or Functional Dry Needling. In addition to moms and kids, Dr. Chris specializes in treating migraine, headache and neck pain sufferers.
In her free time, Dr. Chris enjoys hiking, trail running, baking, reading and most of all, playing with their hilarious daughters Addie and Emma.
