Arctic Chiropractic Exemplifies Quality Conservative Healthcare in Alaska
Arctic Chiropractic Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy is an Alaskan company with an “authentically Alaskan” origin. Dr. Walter Campbell, a lifelong Alaskan, founded Arctic Chiropractic in 2005 to offer chiropractic services to under served, rural areas where services were greatly needed. The company has gone from a one man itinerant clinic, servicing a few locations in rural Alaska, to a network of twenty chiropractic clinics and nine physical therapy clinics, spanning the state from Utqiaġvik (Barrow) to Dutch Harbor, Nome to Ketchikan, and most places in between. Dr. Campbell was born in Fairbanks, raised in Utqiaġvik, and now resides in Palmer. Growing up in Utqiaġvik, he was acutely aware of the needs of rural Alaskans and how difficult it can be to receive quality healthcare. “From early on, I knew the next step in advancing chiropractic healthcare in Alaska was to bring it to the areas in Alaska that needed it most and had little access to it,” Dr. Campbell says. “So we have been able to do that, and it’s been the most rewarding aspect of my career. We’ve brought a lot to places that didn’t have many, if any options before. I’m also very proud of our larger clinics […]

We therefore 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 Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy to establish the Bethel clinic in Bethel 2005 and then the Kotzebue 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. 2007 In Early 2007 the Arctic Chiropractic Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy Fairbanks and Anchorage offices opened their doors to provide service to those areas, and also to offer care for rural […]
