Dr. Craig Taylor, D.C.
Dr. Craig Taylor is the co-founder and co-owner of Charleston Pain and Rehab & Wellness, whose focus is to provide patient-centered care using a variety of integrative treatments. His Bachelor of Science was earned in Biological Sciences at the University of Georgia and became a Doctor of Chiropractic at Life University. He is certified in a wide range of Chiropractic techniques as well as physiotherapy exercises and modalities.
His expertise is not only helping to relieve discomfort, but also finding the actual cause of the pain. He believes that detecting the origin of where the pain is coming from will remove the source of what’s causing the discomfort. He uses a variety of highly scientific researched chiropractic techniques to help improve spinal biomechanics, reduce nervous system interference and improve overall health.
Growing up in a medical family, he always envisioned himself going to medical school. In college, he experienced a lacrosse injury, which lead to two herniated discs in his mid-back. After months of seeing several medical doctors and physical therapists with minimal long-term pain relief, he finally sought out to find a chiropractor. Within a month, his mid-back pain began to drastically diminish and has been under control ever since. He feels fortunate to have gone through this type of experience, as he feels he can help others with similar injuries and symptoms.
Being an Atlanta native, he is excited to give back to the community that has treated him so well. On his spare time, he enjoys playing and supporting the local sports teams and athletes. He also enjoys spending time with his family and friends, taking his dog Bailey (Queen B) to the park, weightlifting, water sports and living a healthy active lifestyle.
