Hi, I'm Dr. Craig Tankersley, DC
I have over 29 years of experience in helping people just like you get out of pain and back to living and loving life. Together, I am confident that we can figure out what’s causing your problem and come up with a solution to correct it. Chiropractic care has helped millions of other patients, I'm sure it can help you as well.
What does an adjustment look like?
Here is a very short video of a traditional (Diversified or Palmer) adjusting method. I also use different low force techniques for infants, children and those patients who don't like to hear anything pop or crack. Chiropractic Adjustment
An Interview with Dr. Craig
In case you're wondering how I wound up here
I was born in Coral Gables, Florida and grew up in West Palm Beach. In my early years I spent most of my time fishing and surfing while trying to avoid school as much as possible. I never dreamed that I would become a doctor as I was a D+ student at best. After graduating from John I Leonard High School in 1979 I worked many an odd job while trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I was all over the place but nothing seemed to fit. At the tender young age of 28 something inside me said, how about being a chiropractor? I was accepted to Cleveland Chiropractic School in Kansas City, MO in 1989 and dug into the course work. I found anatomy and neurology fascinating and discovered I could actually be an A student, if I applied myself. I graduated with honors and returned home to work with my dad in Lake Worth, Fl.
The father son team lasted a month, I decided to head to Colorado with my girlfriend as she didn't like Florida and I was unemployed. We moved to Littleton, CO and started a small practice that eventually grew into a busy office with multiple employees. I never liked being so far from home so, after 10 years of enjoying Colorado we sold the practice and moved to Hendersonville, TN. During the next few years my ex-wife left for greener pastures and I stayed in TN.
And then I met Laurie
She was nice enough to move from WPB to TN and marry me 2012. Together we continued to grow the practice and enjoyed the Nashville area. We both knew that Florida was our home so we sold our practice to a great doc and moved back home. The new office is now up and running and we don't plan on ever leaving Florida again. Laurie has become a busy realtor here while I still try to sneak off to the beach wehn able for some fishing and surfing. I guess somethings never change : )
