Meet Dr. Matthew Hamby

Effingham County Chiropractor, Dr. Matthew Hamby

“I had extreme low back pain and was amazed at the results!”

My personal experience with chiropractic came when I was in high school. I was working at a warehouse lifting heavy boxes when I felt extreme lower back pain. My parents were chiropractic patients so I decided to make an appointment. My lower back pain was gone after a few visits and I was excited about the idea of restoring health naturally through chiropractic. My desire to help people through natural means began to develop.

Chiropractic Education

Dr. Hamby began his pre-chiropractic education at E.C.C. in Elgin, Il. where he studied basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry along with basic physiology and anatomy courses.

After receiving his Associate of Science degree he was accepted at Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in Los Angeles, CA. During his four years at L.A.C.C., courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, x-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the L.A.C.C. public clinics. After completing this extensive education he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology and his Doctorate of Chiropractic.

Family

Dr. Matthew Hamby is married to Sharon and they have two children, Kristin and Christian. The family enjoys traveling and outdoor activities. Dr. Hamby and his wife met through chiropractic and enjoy working together and serving their patient’s needs. Dr. Hamby and his family are involved in their local church and community.

Dr. Hamby and his family receive regular chiropractic care to enhance their overall health. They get their exercise through outdoor activities such as gardening, yard work, walking the dogs and bicycling. They enjoy cooking healthy meals at home and trying new recipes.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
