Australian spine specialist, Dr. Cameron McConville shares a story of a 67 year-old retired taxi driver with severe lower back and leg pain. Dr. McConville's specialized treatment quickly returned this patient to his normal activities.
Dr. McConville graduated from the RMIT Bachelor course in 1993. Following his graduation, he spent his first 5 years in Geelong.

Muscle treatments and exercise rehabilitative therapy became a central focus of his treatments and he continues this unique approach today.
Through ongoing professional education and training Dr. McConville has expanded his expertise and knowledge in the management of spinal disorders. Advances in the treatment of severe spinal cases led Cameron to the USA where he has undertaken further studies in the theory and application of Cox Technic.

Certified Cox practitioners are regarded for their evidence-based approach to the management of spinal disorders. Dr. McConville has special interest in the management of sciatica, chronic low back, neck pain and headaches.

About Dr. Nelson
My journey to becoming a Chiropractor began with me as a patient in my early teens. I was being treated for some debilitating migraine headaches that would take my vision from me. The care I was receiving significantly reduced this.
I finished my education graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa March of 2002. I have practiced in Michigan continuously since then. My wife and I have 2 boys and a girl which keeps us very active. I have been helping to coach my son’s wrestling club in the winters as well.
I have treated every type of patient possible from all 3 of my kids within 2 hours of their birth, to professional athletes, to motor vehicle injuries, to my oldest a fascinating 110 year old woman who was a burlesque dancer in Paris France in World War II. Given my own experiences in athletics, with my own significant injuries, I have a wealth of experience in treating all aspects of the spine. I also have a specialized technique for treatment of the shoulder. I employ over 10 techniques for adjusting the spine, and work tirelessly to find the technique that is right for each patient. I utilize a mechanically vitalistic view of the body. It is a beautiful machine that can do amazing things functionally, but only if it’s structure (the spine) is in its optimum condition.
