Our Practice



Our practice began in 2008 when Dr. Spillman joined Dr. David Brown in practice. Although Dr. Brown’s interests have taken him elsewhere, Balanced Chiropractic and Physical Therapy in Charlottesville 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. In 2011, he added in-house physical therapy in Charlottesville and we became Balanced Chiropractic and Physical Therapy. Our practice now offers chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy all under one roof! We allow the latest evidence to inform our treatments for optimal outcomes: faster results, longer lasting results, lower treatment costs, and happier patients.


The doctors are skilled and passionate about what they do. Our practice strives 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/manual 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.
