Dr. Charles Schuster, DC

Owner/Disc Specialist/Doctor of Chiropractic

When people ask Dr. Schuster why he became a Doctor of Chiropractic, he always has the same response; ‘I didn’t choose it, it chose me’. He didn’t always want to become a Chiropractic Physician. When he began college, he just wanted to study health and live a healthy lifestyle. It didn’t take long for him to discover a profession that embraced true health and after visiting a couple of Chiropractic Colleges; he had made up my mind that he was born to do this.

Dr. Schuster specializes in natural pain relief treatment that reduces reliance on medications and prevents surgery. Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Back To Health emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. This is one of the main reasons for the big surge in the popularity of our wellness center. Dr. Schuster is also a Disc Specialist who is able to relieve back and neck pain through non-surgical Spinal Decompression. 

Dr. Schuster is a long-time resident of Charleston. He and his wife Suzi have 5 grown children and 1 grandson.
