Madison Chiropractor : Dr. Elise Faust

My Chiropractic Journey (So Far)

I began getting adjusted when I was 19 years old. As a dancer and personal fitness trainer, I knew it was tremendously important to take care of my body. Early on in my career, I realized that our bodies are innate healing organisms and needed to be respected as such

I never actually thought about “becoming” a chiropractor until I was 25. One day I got to watch a friend of mine (who was a chiropractor) adjust a patient who was debilitated by a severe headache. I said to him, “It must be amazing to walk around with the power to help someone in just your two hands.” He replied, “You can go back to school and learn to do the same thing!” At that moment it was as if a light bulb had gone off in my head—this is what I would do with my life! I haven’t regretted that decision for one second.

Chiropractic Education

I packed up my husband, Mark, my two-year-old daughter, Victoria, and everything we owned, put it all in a U-Haul truck, and moved to Atlanta to pursue my chiropractic degree. Going to Life University (which was called Life College at the time) was an amazing experience for me. The college was fairly small and felt like a family community. I even brought Victoria with me to some of my classes (like many other classmates who were moms and dads changing careers like me).

While attending Life, I met Vince Campbell. We had the same love of healing, the same philosophy about health, and the same desire to share our love and knowledge with others. So, we decided to open a practice together here in Madison (right after my second daughter, Taylor, was born).

We have enjoyed practicing together for almost 14 years, and becoming a part of the Madison community. Our children (Victoria, 22 and Taylor, 15) have grown up here, and my husband is a Professor at the University of Georgia. Part of the appeal of practicing in a small town like Madison is that we don’t just see people in our office and forget about them. Our patients are the people we see every day at the grocery store, at the coffee shop, at the schools. So, we’re invested in helping our patients even more because they’re our friends and neighbors, too.

Our office is a homey, healing environment.

We encourage our patients to learn more about their bodies and their health, and we provide them as much information as we possibly can. We’ve taken extensive continuing education courses, and offer our patients classes about posture, nutrition, exercise, yoga, Pilates, breathing, Essential Oil therapy, and other topics. We use many different adjusting techniques in our healing care, because every body needs something different. We help newborn babies through 90+ year olds. It’s never too early or too late to start taking care of your amazing, miraculous body.

I can say confidently that we practice what we (lovingly) preach to our patients. I am an avid walker/jogger; I absolutely love my yoga practice (I teach both yoga and Pilates); eating delicious, healthy (and not so healthy) food is especially joyful for me!

I encourage you to come in and meet me, and Dr. Vince, so that we can, with love and enthusiasm, help you get started on your healing path…whatever it may be!
