Dr. Matt Campbell, Licensed Chiropractic Physician
Dr. Matt Campbell is a graduate of Life University’s College of Chiropractic in Marietta, GA. During his schooling, he completed a number of extracurricular certifications that are specific to the sports medicine field, including full body certification in Active Release Technique (ART), as well as FAKTR, Rocktape, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), and Mckenzie Lumbar Spine. He was very active on campus and was on the executive board of the school’s Sports Chiropractic Council since his 3rd quarter in the program. He went on to serve as the council president for a year and was the Life University ambassador for the American Chiropractic Association’s Sports Council.
Matt has always been very active and involved in sports from a young age. He played soccer competitively since he was able to kick a ball and has been a part of a number of high-level teams in North Carolina. It was here that he found chiropractic after sustaining an on-field injury to his back when he was a teenager. His interest in athletics led him to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science at Appalachian State University where he was a part of a handful of research studies within the department. During his time in the North Carolina mountains, he found his passions for rock climbing and trail running which have become his current athletic pursuits.
He is in the final stages of completing his Master’s Degree in Sports Health Science with a concentration in Sports Chiropractic. As part of the degree, he spent a year providing chiropractic care to Life University’s athletic teams, including the national championship-winning rugby team. Here he grew his skills in sports-focused chiropractic adjusting and injury management.
Matt believes in a multi-faceted approach to care that involves a thorough functional assessment centered on the patient’s ability to move. Matt’s Philosophy is that we are nothing without movement. Through assessing movement we can determine how to address current conditions and predict future dysfunction and disease. He utilizes the most current and well-researched modalities to complement the chiropractic adjustment and ensure that the patient gets back to their highest functioning state as quickly as possible.
