Our approach combines the power of chiropractic with the gold standard of spine care research. If your symptoms are new, you’ll likely receive a barrage of advice from friends, family, and health care professionals (like Dr. Google). The long list of products and services intended for relief can be overwhelming. Clinical expertise brings clarity- simple modifications often produce immediate and dramatic results. For those suffering from chronic pain, conservative care from a good clinician is a must before resorting to invasive procedures or pain management. Our service provides hands-on relief care and a practical step by step method to fix the root cause and prevent reoccurrence. Treatment is tailored to meet your specific health and performance objectives in a healing environment.
Top Clinic for Conservative Back Care in Boston
We will apply a broad range of manual therapy skills to achieve the best and fastest results. Chiropractors analyze posture to deliver spinal "adjustments". This safe, effective, hands-on manipulation has been popularized due to instant relief. Each adjustment is designed to address motion restrictions and take as much pressure off the spine as possible. Additionally, we may employ low force techniques such as manual spinal decompression, hip mobilization, motion palpation, and assisted stretching.
Many doctors ignore or are unaware of the basic rules of spine biomechanics. Neck and back troubles are not a life sentence! With a clear understanding of symptoms, patients often feel pleasantly surprised and empowered. Our evidence-based approach involves patient education and simple progressions. It's the type of treatment that just makes sense.

Soft Tissue Release
Certain patients may benefit from supporting muscle work. Local tissue damage may affect associated musculature and negatively influence movement on a larger scale. These issues often delay recovery or prevent full recovery. Our focused muscle work targets adhesions, tension, spasm, and stiffness. This is performed briefly with moderate intensity, similar to a deep tissue or sports massage. For those looking for gentle massage and longer duration, we are happy to recommend a trusted massage therapist in Boston. Chiropractic and massage often work well together.
Your First Visit
A treatment session is built around you! Your body, lifestyle, and goals. New patients receive a personalized assessment to arrive at a precise diagnosis and outline your care here in our office. The assessment is usually brief, but it can also be more detailed. It depends on your clinical presentation. And yes, you'll also get a great adjustment!
"Time spent in assessment will save time in treatment."
MEET THE DOCTOR
Dr. Ryan Hollien is a licensed chiropractor and owner of Seaport Spine. Having first-hand experience of back pain due to a sports injury as a teenager and the ensuing frustration over the lack of effective treatment available, it was finally visiting a chiropractor that would inspire his calling to help others alleviate their back pain. By being afforded wider avenues for treatment options, the chiropractor’s thorough assessment, practical treatment plan, and positive results illustrated that back pain can be treated in a healthy, drug-free, noninvasive manner without hindrance from insufficient insurance guidelines and fragmented healthcare coverage. Dr. Hollien is able to continue in this tradition, and received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College. Dr. Hollien has since cultivated his expertise by attending seminars with the nation's top spine specialists. Dr. Hollien's primary objective is to deliver outstanding service to his clients.
As a native of the Boston area, Dr. Hollien has a well-established network of local doctors and therapists. He aims to create a more collaborative environment among health and wellness professionals throughout the city. During consultation, he will often point patients in the right direction if alternative routes would be more suitable to their needs.
He also acts as a volunteer consultant to local businesses.
