Welcome to our clinic website. If you have found us because you are having a health problem(s), please take a moment to read what others have had to say about our office and more importantly, their results. There can still be a solution for you without the use of drugs or surgery.
I started seeing Dr. Smith a year ago. When I first went in I could hardly walk and had been in severe pain for over 4-5 weeks and I was looking for relief NOW. Guess what? I didn’t get it that day. It was the 2nd appointment before I got my first adjustment. So until that point I was disappointed and a little skeptical. Over the next couple visits, I started to see changes after about 2 months I was back walking and back in the Gym. I now am pain free most days unless self-inflicted. Dr. Smith has helped my wife with her headaches as well. Anyone I see in pain I tell them the good word about Dr. Smith and what he can do for them. His wife is Super Awesome as well!
"Said Goodbye to the Annoying Shoe Lift!"
I’ve seen several Chiropractors over the past 20 years and never got the results like I did after my first visit with Dr. Smith.
After ONE cervical adjustment I did not put my lift back in my shoe. I did not need to!
I can wear flip flops and not worry about hip pain. I can exercise and not fret about my lift shifting in my shoe. I now have the freedom to walk bare foot because I said goodbye to the annoying shoe lift.
By the way, I ‘m not the only one in my family that has benefited from Dr. Smith’s chiropractic care! Thank you!
"I am living, thriving proof of the benefits of Chiropractic care"
Having recently moved to this area from out of state, it was a challenge to find new doctors. A friend from church referred me to Dr. Smith. I had been experiencing tremendous tightness and pain in my back. When I woke up each morning I would have to lay flat on the floor because my back was in such spasms. My arms and hands would also tingle and go numb. I exercised regularly and didn’t understand why I was having so much spasms. It was exhausting! After x-rays, Dr. Smith began his treatment plan. Within 30 days I was almost pain free!
I am so grateful for a Doctor who listens and wants to see me healthy. I continue on a monthly maintenance plan and this has become part of my regimen for a healthy life. I am living, thriving proof of the benefits of Chiropractic care.
"Trouble walking and standing"
A few years ago I started having trouble walking and standing. Pain in my legs and back. I had a knee replacement and that stopped the leg problem but not my back. The pain was so bad I lost interest in shopping or going anywhere. It was hard to stand for any length of time.
My son and daughter-in laws told me about Dr. Smith. He has made me a new person. I can enjoy life again. I went on vacation and for the first time I was able to walk on the beach and shop without pain in my back.
Thank you Dr. Smith for helping me be able to enjoy life again.
"Help Even After Two Neck Fusion Surgeries
Singing your praises! Started getting adjusted 3 years ago.
Three years ago, I was out sick from work with back issues on an average of 80 hours (2 weeks) per year!!! Last year I was out a total of 3 days! Only ONE day was due to back issues (the other 2 days were for a cold).
Thanking my auntie, Kathy, for the best referral EVER!!!
Two neck surgeries (2001+2003) and it took my stubborn tail 8 years to seek chiropractic help!
Lesson learned...while singing your praises!!!!!!
When I first came to Camden Clinic of Chiropractic I was having migraine headaches that involved neck, shoulder and upper back pain. I would experience “regular migraines” about 2 – 3 times per month and severe migraines about every 2 months. The headaches would be so severe that they would cause nausea/vomiting and I would end up with trips to the Emergency Room about once a month. I was experiencing these headaches since I was 10 years old.
Camden Clinic of Chiropractic treated me compassionately and professionally. The care that I received was very thorough and convenient with my schedule.
I now have a “life”! I continue receiving care monthly to maintain the progress that I made. I haven’t made a trip to the emergency room in over 9 months. I haven’t had nausea or vomiting. I occasionally get headaches but these headaches are manageable.
Thank you so much!
“Now I realize that pain is not normal”
I am a mother of two children and a wife. My life is very busy and my days are long. In my twenties I started having health problems, one problem after another. I even had a mild stroke at the age of 25 years old. I had to learn to talk and walk again. So, basically I became accustomed to pain, I mean major pain. Which, I thought was just going to be my new normal “pain”.
In 2009 my son got diagnosed with autism, which changed my life. Here I am a young mother needing my husband and my parents help to care for me. How can I handle the demands of a specials needs child? So, with a lot of prayer, reading, research and support we discovered that our diet may help my son and all of us. We started eating fresh fruit and vegetables, stopped eating out at fast food, took vitamins, natural products, we exercised, etc. my life had greatly improved to the point that I alone could handle the demands on my special needs son and my other child, which was great! My health and well-being improved a lot. I even started back volunteering more fully in my Bible educational work that I love.
Then in September 2011 an unlicensed driver rear-ended me when I was at a complete stop at a stop sign. This SHOOK my whole world, causing all the problems I had before to come back to the surface along with a lot of new ones. So, here I am again, needing someone to take care of me. So, my husband drove me to Camden Clinic of Chiropractic for help and I am so glad that he did.
Now, I am back to volunteering and having a full share in my children school activities. I have stamina to walk, to stand, to play with my kids and to do my household cleaning, to drive, etc. I feel much better. I am so thankful and grateful for all the help I received at Camden Clinic of Chiropractic. I thank you, my husband, my family, and especially my children thank you. They have their mom back! Now, I realize that pain is not normal. You don’t have to make it a part of your daily life. Kick the pain! Take charge of your life and get the help you need from Dr. Smith and Gail at Camden Clinic of Chiropractic! My sound advice to everyone is…to Live IN your LIFE AGAIN not just MANAGING around it!
"Great results after being skeptical because of past experiences"
The first time I had an appointment with Dr. Smith, and met Gail, I saw all of the testimonials on the wall and thought to myself, I'll never be writing a letter like that. Having been to various Doctors, Chiropractors, an Acupuncturist, and other kinds of treatments and creams, I was very skeptical that I would ever get relief from the pain in my back and leg.
At that point I was only able to walk from the kitchen to the living room without having to sit down. In order to go to the grocery store for a few things, I had to take Tylenol, and ice down for at least 20 minutes. Then I was only able to last for about 30 minutes and had to come home. I was desperate! I agreed to give it a try...
Dr. Smith began working on my back and neck and before I knew it, I was feeling better. What a wonderful thing to get some relief!
About 3 weeks into the treatment, my close friend was diagnosed with cancer and we began a long journey of hospitals, treatments, tests, weeks in the hospital, where I slept in a chair and did a lot of walking. A hospital chair is torture for a good back. My back was so much better that somehow I was able to do what I had to do and keep up with most of my treatments. Gail was great to make a time for me whenever I had a minute to run into the office.
Some days I am pain free and have driven my friend to radiation in Columbia five days a week and to chemotherapy one day a week. Never did I think on that day Dr. Smith knocked on my door and handed me a card announcing that he was opening a new practice that I would be going and get such great results.
"No More Pain Pills"
I was referred to Camden Clinic of Chiropractic by another patient. At the time that I went to see Dr. Smith I was having back pain, ringing in my ears, and it was difficult going to the restroom consistently each day. I was suffering with this every day for about 3 years. The staff treated me very good and they helped me make sure that I stayed on track with my care.
I'm now feeling better and I'm making sure that my posture is good. The results have been great. I am now going every day without back pain, no more pain pills and I am now able to use the restroom consistently every day!
"My overall wellbeing has improved tremendously"
I started seeing Dr. Smith in March 2015 for lower back pain and neck stiffness. I had suffered from this for a few years and needed relief. From the beginning the staff treated me with respect and like a long-term patient. One of my favorite things about Dr. Smith’s office is the personal touch and all around concern for the patients. Since beginning my treatment with Dr. Smith I can stand for long periods of time without getting tired or being in pain. It has made coaching and umpiring baseball much easier for me, thus more enjoyable. My overall wellbeing has improved tremendously since coming to see Dr. Smith.
"Maintenance care has helped me to continue to do well"
I started seeing Dr. Smith 4 years ago for neck and back pain. My pain decreased substantially while under care. I have continued to see Dr. Smith under maintenance care the last few years. Maintenance care has helped me to continue to do well and I have noticed that my activity levels have increased. I am now able to do things with my 3 children that I was not able to do prior to visiting Dr. Smith.
His office is very professional and easy to work with.
“I realized how far I had come”
Trust These Two People!
From my first visit several years ago, I knew I was in the right place. Dr. Smith and his sweet wife Gail have helped me improve my overall health and dramatically ease my degenerative conditions. My progress has been steady but so gradual that I was almost unaware of the results. Then, one day in the middle of doing some activities virtually pain-free, I realized how far I had come. I continue to enjoy the benefits of their treatments and feel blessed to have them helping me enjoy a better quality of life. Our community is fortunate to have the excellent care found at the Camden Clinic of Chiropractic!
"The best, most thorough approach I’ve ever experienced in a Chiropractic practice"
When I first came to Camden Clinic of Chiropractic I was having frequent lower back pain with pain going down my left leg. I had experienced this pain for 8 – 10 years. Dr. Smith treated me with focused concern in a professional manner. Dr. Smith and Gail were both very kind and solicitous.
What I liked most about the care I received at Camden Clinic of Chiropractic was the high level of professionalism. Dr. Smith has the best, most thorough approach I’ve ever experienced in a Chiropractic practice.
My bouts of acute pain have almost disappeared since I received care from Camden Clinic of Chiropractic. With Dr. Smith’s help I have learned exercises and techniques that I can use to help prevent pain most of the time to maintain normal movement.
"All it would take was a simple wrong movement and suddenly..."
All it would take was a simple wrong movement and suddenly, I would experience severe pain across my lower back and down my legs. Over the past few years, these episodes became more frequent. Muscle relaxers and pain medication only put a band-aid on the problem. I wanted to know what was causing it and how to prevent it. Dr. Smith wanted to know the same thing.
My heart sank when x-rays revealed that I had no curve in the lumbar section of my spine, and my spine was not vertically aligned; rather it curved to the right. Add to that, pelvic unleveling and rotation of the pelvis. Now we know what is causing my back problem! Left untreated this could lead to spurs and bulging or herniated discs.
Dr. Smith presented a written case evaluation and recommendation just for me. This plan included the problems I had stated and his suggested treatment. This was important to me because, as I read it, I knew he had listened to and considered everything I said. With the written plan in my hand, I never had to worry if I had missed something he said. It was all there in black and white.
He gave me the opportunity to be proactive in my treatment – something I had not been given the opportunity to do previously. I followed his treatment schedule, keeping my appointments and exercising to strengthen the core muscles attached to my spine and to improve mobility. Finally! We’re doing something to prevent it from happening again!
I am excited about how far I have come in three months. Recent x-rays show that I have a normal curved lumbar, my spine is only slightly away from vertical alignment, and there is major improvement in leveling and rotation of my pelvis. With proper maintenance, the risk of simple movement causing pain or having spurs and bulging or herniated discs has been lowered significantly. Now I have the hope of completing my time in the work force and remaining independent well into my retirement years. And most importantly, I will be able to do the things I love with my grandchildren. I am truly blessed to have been treated by this compassionate and caring doctor and his assistant.
"I can finally have my hair washed at the salon without any pain!"
When I first came in to see Dr. Smith what I had was pain in my right shoulder and neck pain and noticed it when I would go into the beauty shop to get my hair done. I suffered with this pain probably for a couple of years.
Dr. Smith and Gail were encouraging and kind to me. Gail always has a smile on her face and she even acknowledged my success.
What I liked most about my care at Camden Clinic of Chiropractic was that I was treated with kindness and they gave me hope that I could get better. Now I can lean back in a beauty parlor chair to have my hair washed without any pain in my neck.
I am now coming into the clinic on a monthly basis to maintain the good health that I received and help to keep my neck in alignment. I know that I am doing all that I can to keep from having this problem return.
"I never knew that I had Scoliosis"
When I first went to Dr. Smith, I was experiencing severe pain in my neck and the top of my legs. After our initial consultation & x-rays, he discovered I had a bad case of Scoliosis. I had never been diagnosed with this and I am 61 years "young"! I am a very active person and this was really cramping my style!
After treating me for almost 4 months now, I cannot believe how much better I feel! I have full movement in my neck and very little pain in my legs. Before going to Dr. Smith, every step I took I felt pain – I was even walking with a limp. He has given me exercises to do as well as stretches.
I know my Scoliosis will never go away, but I will continue to get regular adjustments from Dr. Smith in order to maintain my pain free neck and legs.
I am so glad that Dr. Smith and his dear wife Gail have come to settle in our great town of Camden.
"I can do things that I haven't done in years"
Since I started going to the Camden Clinic of Chiropractic, I have really started to feel the difference in my body. I am able to do things that I have not done in years. I am even able to exercise and walk around the track. I really enjoy it. I would recommend the clinic to all my family and friends.
