Meet Dr. Craig
Dr. Tankersley has been in active full time practice for 22+ years serving his community. His approach is direct and efficient because he understands that most people do not have the time nor the patience for health problems. Instead of exclusively setting clinical goals for his patients, he also sets "life effect" goals. In other words, goals that are IMPORTANT to his patients, such as having enough energy to exercise again, or a new mother being able to pick up her newborn without searing pain, etc.
Dr. Tankersley also understands that people in his community have ZERO tolerance for BS. As a health consumer himself, he knows that people are asked to jump through hoops in order to get answers or solutions to their health problems. He has received accolades for being able to help people get their lives back without relying on drugs or surgery. In other words he tries to correct the problem, not just give a short term quick fix or drawn out fancy moves.
Dr. Tankersley is a State Licensed and a Certified Nationally Board of Chiropractic Examiners Practitioner in both Chiropractic and Acupuncture. He has over 300 hours of training at the Acupuncture Society of America in Kansas City, Missouri, which has educated physicians and practitioners for over thirty years both nationally and internationally. He has also completed a course of study in the diagnosis and treatment of whiplash injuries at the Spine Research Institute of San Diego.
Outside the Office
Dr. Tankersley is a so-so golfer, enjoys the outdoors, and goes fishing and surfing when time allows back home.
