Welcome to Columbia Advanced Chiropractic, LLC, the office of Dr. Allen M. Manison, where quality chiropractic and rehabilitative services are offered in a caring, compassionate, and warm environment.
**New and exciting news for 2019. We are now working with only Blue Cross Blue Shield/Blue Choice, Aetna, and like insurance plans that allow for chiropractic care along with dry needling. We have implemented a ‘Tier’ system for those who do not have an insurance plan that we work with. Dr. Manison enjoys helping patients get out of pain but it is vital to work on prevention and insurance does not cover this side of care. Why is this? Insurance is limiting chiropractors’ (as is the case in many fields of medicine) abilities. This is done by either not allowing us to perform certain skill sets, allowing us to perform such services but not covering them, or creating such a paperwork headache for both patient and staff that it is too difficult to render the necessary care.
Dr. Manison has spent 20 years acquiring the top diagnostic and treatment skills in the field. He prefers to utilize all that he has learned. The way around the insurance limitations is to offer different tiers of care so that each patient can decide what level of care they wish to receive. The top Tier, or Tier 5, involves Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) evaluations, along with other movement screens, hyperbaric sessions, all the treatment skills Dr. Manison specializes in, and lots more. We are excited that our patients can now choose which level of care they want without an insurance company dictating the terms of their treatment.
Please browse through our site and see all the great services that we provide. Whether it be a spinal condition, injury due to trauma, extremity condition, pre or post surgical rehabilitation, sports-related injury, gait problem, or other type of musculoskeletal issue, chances are that Dr. Manison has specialized training that can assist with your problem(s). Dr. Manison is one of only three Diplomates of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians® in Maryland, the highest level of sports injury training in the field.
Dr. Manison prides himself on offering the best chiropractic, soft tissue, diagnostic, and rehabilitative care possible. His philosophy is that good patient results can only be achieved when the doctor administering the care has optimal training and spends the necessary time to diagnose the problem and correct it. Individualized care is essential! It is for these reasons that the majority of the patients at Columbia Advanced Chiropractic, LLC are referred from medical doctors and other patients. Dr. Manison has the highest level of training in the Columbia / Ellicott City / Howard County region. As Dr. Manison likes to say ‘When you’re ready to get better, come and see me.’

What Our Patients Say
For over 40 years (I am 61) I lived with chronic low back pain, punctuated by occasional acute attacks of pain that kept me flat on my back for a day or more. Dr. Manison used manipulations and the Graston technique to “rebuild my back” over a period of five months; and he gave me a graded set of exercises to help me strengthen stomach and back muscles.
I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you for the successful treatment of the herniated and bulging discs in my neck. As you know, back in May 2007, I was incapacitated due to the severe pain caused by the pressure on the nerves from the herniated and bulging discs.
I just wanted to take a moment to drop you a note to say thanks for all that you have done. When I first began treatment following my back injury, I was in a lot of pain. Additionally, I was obviously concerned about the significance of a back injury due to my status as an active duty service member.
