Meet The Doctors

Dr. James Casteel, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Carmel Mountain

Dr. James Casteel joined The Joint Chiropractic team in September of 2016 when he became the local chiropractor for both the Carmel Mountain and San Marcos clinics in San Diego, California. Dr. Casteel has been providing chiropractic care since 2012, after receiving his doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida.

He was born and raised in Huntsville, AL and moved to his current home of Carlsbad, CA in July 2013. Dr. Casteel first became interested in chiropractic as a profession when he injured his back playing basketball in college.

“I tried the traditional medicine route, and broke out in hives from the medication I was prescribed. Reluctantly, I tried chiropractic; and to my surprise after my first visit I felt about 60% better! After a few more weeks I was as good as new! So when the time came, I chose to apply to chiropractic school instead of medical school.”

Dr. Casteel loves having the ability to help treat and relieve his local community as his chiropractor did for him. He says the best thing about being a doctor of chiropractic is being able to provide immediate relief without the use of drugs or invasive surgery.

Over the course of his professional career Dr. Casteel has learned to serve a range of patients from infants to grandparents all with a variety of ailments such as sciatica, neck pain, upper and lower back pain, migraines, arthritis and much more.

In his spare time, Dr. Casteel can be found participating in outdoor activities such as surfing and snowboarding, or spending time with his fiancée, Rachna.

Dr. Casteel says he has done a lot of ‘cool’ things in his lifetime, but one of the coolest occurred while he was finishing up chiropractic school.

“I was chosen to go on a chiropractic mission/volunteer trip to India. We set up a free clinic for a week in Hyderabad and got to experience the amazing culture and people on the other side of the world.”

Dr. Kamsi met his wife while attending college and married her in 2000. They have 2 boys now and enjoy raising their family in the beautiful city of San Diego.
