The seed for Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine was planted many years ago in 2001 while founder and CEO Dr. Heather Lambert was visiting Denmark as part of her college studies. As she toured multiple healthcare facilities, she was amazed to see chiropractic and medical physicians working side by side seamlessly (something that wouldn’t be seen here in the US for another decade).
Dr. Lambert was most impressed with the tremendous results that the physicians were seeing with their patients – all without using dangerous drugs or surgery. In 2005, she started Atlantic Coast Family Chiropractic in Summerville, South Carolina with the goal in mind to one day create an integrated office.
In 2013, Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine (ACPM) began accepting new patients and became one of Charleston’s first fully integrated medical practices.
Atlantic Coastal Physical Medicine is committed to providing high quality outpatient physical rehab services in beautiful state-of-the-art facilities using an integrated office environment.
We are committed as primary healthcare professionals to help our clients resume their lifelong pursuit of health, fitness, and well-being.
ACPM’s physicians practice functional medicine – Instead of treating symptoms, they take a holistic approach that takes into account the entire person.
This means that we help our patients to function better physically, as well as resolve their symptoms. Restoring function means regaining the abilities and activities that mean the most.
In the Charleston area, ACPM also provides wellness programs to many of the area’s corporations, educating employees about preventative healthcare including injury prevention, nutrition, and weight loss, and stress management just to name a few.
