Campbell Chiropractors Of Chiropractic First

Dr. Ken Savage

Dr. Kenneth SavageDr. Savage’s first experience with chiropractic came at the young age of 16, when he injured his low back playing sports. Advised to undergo back surgery, he instead took the advice of a family friend who referred him to a chiropractor. The chiropractor helped Dr. Savage overcome spine and nerve injury and educated him on the exercises that would become a part of his life. Not only did that chiropractor become his mentor, but he urged Dr. Savage to seek a career in chiropractic. Since that time, his life changed forever.

Initially specializing in treating sports injuries by combining chiropractic with physical therapy, Dr. Savage found that his clients were returning for regular adjustments even after recovering. They found chiropractic helped not only with recovering from injuries, but in maintaining good health. This experience led Dr. Savage to focus on chiropractic for wellness and maintenance.

Dr. TJ Gudilin

From Young Athlete to Chiropractor

Dr TJ GudilinWhen Dr. Gudilin (better known around the office as Dr. G) was 13 years old, he was an avid rugby player who had been experiencing dizziness during games and practices with radiating shoulder and neck pain—to the point where he would “see stars.” Knowing this was not normal, his mother took him to see a Chiropractor. Dr. G was immediately amazed at the sheer energy this chiropractor had. After spending some time with him, he learned how chiropractic could correct his shoulder and neck problems. He still remembers a day more than 20 years ago when he turned to his mother after being adjusted and said, “Mom, I want to be a Chiropractor.”

Dr. G went on to attend the renowned Life College West where he obtained his Doctorate of Chiropractic. Though he initially specialized in treating sports injuries with other therapies, he later found that care worked best when it was focused and specific to each patient.

He has enjoyed every day that he’s been able to practice chiropractic, spreading health and wellness to the community. He hopes to help his patients understand the benefits of chiropractic while improving their lives for the long-term instead of merely masking symptoms.
