APPROACH

Our approach is much different than traditional chiropractors. Our doctors work as a team with our therapists to formulate care plans with an all-hands-on approach to facilitate healing and remodel detrimental postural patterns. Our treatments are integrative sessions using techniques that combine assisted and active stretching, yoga and focused massage. Chiropractic is our foundation, but the icing on the cake is the additional time that we spend with our patients allowing their bodies to transform at a much faster pace with all that we offer at our clinic.

WHEN AND WHY

I have been under chiropractic care since I was six years old, my father since he was eight. The powerful effects of chiropractic care have always been a part of my family’s overall health and wellness. I worked for Chiropractor Doctor Meg Lawson when I was studying at the University of Georgia; she brought her dog to work with her every day. I watched her and learned so much. Witnessing firsthand how happy her patients were, and the positive change she made in people’s lives was the catalyst for me moving to Atlanta to start chiropractic school.

OUTSTANDING MOMENTS

All of the cases over the last 20 years when I performed the Webster technique on breech in utero presentations allowing babies to turn before delivery so that the mother could achieve her chosen birth plan; those are the most rewarding moments and achievements in my practice.

OUTSTANDING PROCEDURES

Dr. Janie Baxter in Hazlehurst, GA., was a real influence in how I wanted to practice and how I wanted to serve my patients. She was my family’s chiropractor. Everyone in her clinic felt like family and her staff went above and beyond to provide extra care and time. I wanted my clinic to feel like I did when I was at hers.

OUTSTANDING TECHNOLOGY

Studies show that chiropractic care increases telomere length. A decrease in telomere length can shorten your lifespan causing a faster rate of aging. Chiropractors seek to increase the function of every cell in the body through better neurological communication. Studies have also been released relating longevity and posture. Certainly, chiropractic can add years to your life and life to your years.

COVID-19 CHALLENGES

The biggest effect of COVID-19 was people not knowing that chiropractors are essential healthcare workers. I think a lot of our patients suffered, not knowing that they could still get in to see us at that time.
