Dr. Benjamin W. Smith III, D.C.

A Provider of ReliefNow

Dr. Smith is from Birmingham where he attended UAB for his undergraduate degree in Exercise Science. He obtained his chiropractic degree from Texas College of Chiropractic(TCC). Having finished his clinic requirements and completing an externship early, he was accepted and allowed to participate in medical rotations in Rheumatology under Dr. Lidsky..

As an undergraduate Dr. Smith chose Exercise Science as a pre-professional degree with a desire to go into physical therapy. During this time he played rugby for the Birmingham Vulcans. Upon his second season he began to experience significant back pain for the second time in his athletic career. The pain persisted through two seasons and ultimately sidelined him. With a desire to continue to play and having been through multiple epidural blocks and physical therapy, he finally sought chiropractic care. It was through chiropractic care that he not only found relief from his pain but was able to return to rugby. As a result of this experience he decided to change his professional path to chiropractic and ultimately deliver that experience to others.

Having been in practice for 20 years Dr. Smith focuses on restoring function to the spine and joints of patients and giving them freedom to perform their daily activities. He accomplishes this through a wide array of treatment protocols including manipulation, rehabilitation, class IV laser, and spinal disc decompression. During his initial exam of each patient, he not only diagnoses them but also determines their deficiencies in their musculoskeletal function. He then discusses with them what their goals with care are. This allows him to develop a unique plan specific to that patient's needs.

Dr. Smith is a member of the American Chiropractic Association where he has served as the Local Liaison. He is a member of Alabama State Chiropractic Association where he has served as the CACC representative and past Government Affairs Chair.

Dr. Smith is Married to Je Anne Smith. Together they have three children BW, Grayson, and Vivi. He spends his spare time actively with them. He enjoys coaching his children in football, basketball, and volleyball.
