In 2005, Arctic Chiropractic was founded by Walter Campbell DC to provide chiropractic care to remote areas of Alaska where chiropractic was lacking. Growing up in Barrow, Alaska, Dr. Campbell was acutely aware of the special needs of rural Alaskans and how difficult it was to recieve quality health care. In many cases a flight to Anchorage or Fairbanks was required to obtain health care services. Dr. Campbell therfore decided that the next step in advancing chiropractic health care in Alaska was to bring it to the areas in Alaska that needed it most and had little access to it.
Bringing Chiropractic Care to Alaska
Following the axiom led Arctic Chiropractic to establish the Bethel clinic in Bethel 2005 and then the Kozebue clinic in 2006, All the while maintaining monthly remote service to Healy and the residents of the Tri-Valley area. The West Mat-Su soon followed; located in the meadow lakes area, it was established to bring better chiropractic access to the communities of Wasilla, Meadow Lakes, Big Lake, Houston, Willow, and Talkeetna.
In Early 2007 the Arctic Chiropractic Fairbanks and Anchorage offices opened their doors to provide service to those areas, and also to offer care for rural patients when they were travelling or relocating to these larger cities. Later that year, Arctic Chiropractic Delta Junction went online, serving the people of Delta Junction, Big Delta, and Ft. Greely.
With the addition of many more clinics, the doctors of Arctic Chiropractic now proudly operating 17 full-time, fully staffed clinics throughout Alaska in addition to also providing monthly remote service to rural, outlying areas.
