Chiropractor Hendersonville, Dr. Craig TankersleyMeet Dr. Craig Tankersley

Growing up in West Palm Beach, Florida, Dr. Craig came home from surfing one day and thought he needed to do something with his life and thought about chiropractic. As his father is a chiropractor, it was a natural fit for him. Though he initially considered himself to be a reluctant chiropractor, Dr. Craig became an enthusiastic one. “I became infatuated with chiropractic care once I started working with patients. It’s been one of the greatest professionals I’ve ever been in.”

Education and Certifications

In 1993, Dr. Craig obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College. He also is certified in acupuncture in the state of Tennessee. Additionally, he is certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners in both chiropractic and acupuncture. Dr. Craig also completed a course of study in the diagnosis and treatment of whiplash injuries at the Spine Research Institute of San Diego.

Dr. Craig’s Treatment Style

Because he values your time, Dr. Craig takes a direct approach. “I understand you don’t have the time nor the patience for health problems. I also know full well that my patients and the people in this community have zero tolerance for BS. As a health consumer myself, I know that we are asked to jump through hoops to get answers or solutions to our health problems.” That’s why you can count on Dr. Craig to identify the problem you’re dealing with quickly and fix it efficiently.

Dr. Craig also stays active professionally; since 2005, he’s been a member of the Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce in Hendersonville.
