Our Practice



In 2008 Dr. Spillman joined Dr. David Brown in practice, and Balance Chiropractic was born. Although Dr. Brown’s interests have taken him elsewhere, Balanced Chiropractic and Physical Therapy continues with an emphasis on evidence-based, results-oriented care. We continue to be a privately owned small business within the heart of downtown Charlottesville.

In keeping with the principles of evidence-based practice, Dr. Spillman gradually began expanding services and in 2011 when he added in-house physical therapy services, and we became Balanced Chiropractic and Physical Therapy. We now offer chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy all under one roof! We allow the latest evidence to inform our treatment recommendations for optimal outcomes: faster results, longer lasting results, lower treatment costs, and happier patients.

Our doctors and therapists are skilled and passionate about what they do. Here we strive to do better than offer multiple types of services. Instead, we work together to give our patients an integrated approach to provide comprehensive care, including manipulation, therapeutic and corrective exercises, soft tissue/muscle therapy, as well as ergonomic and activity modification and lifestyle counseling.

Research has shown that patients respond better to a holistic approach than to a symptom-driven care plan. In other words, we treat the whole person and not just the symptom. While pain in your shoulder may be what brings you to see us, moving your keyboard at work or working on your tennis serve may be the key to keeping it from re-injury. We believe in addressing your main issues while taking a holistic approach to help you lead a healthier, happier life. Check us out here.
