About Dr. Castanet

dr-craigDr. Craig Castanet graduated from Palmer-West Chiropractic College in 1986. He has 30 years clinical experience; 18 years in an orthopedic, physical medicine and physical therapy clinic, participating in the treatment of 40,000 patients. He also dedicated time each week, for four years, in a neurosurgical practice, learning surgical indications and procedures. Unlike most chiropractors, he has always had a decidedly “medical orientation”. He has excellent professional relationships with pain physicians, orthopedists and neurosurgeons because, sometimes, injections and surgery are appropriate.

He has always sought the best, newest tools and methods in patient treatment. His exceptional interest and competency in treating neck and back pain derives, in part, from his personal experience suffering from sciatica for 6 years, previously. Such chronic pain provides the kind of insight and empathy that books, alone, cannot.

Dr. Castanet is certified in physiotherapy, functional capacity evaluations, Medx spinal rehabilitation, whiplash and brain traumatology, active release techniques, spinal decompression, ATM-2, MRI interpretation, spinal biomechanics, functional medicine, Colossus and has conducted more than 1,000 nerve conduction studies and performed more than 100 FCE’s.
