A POWERFUL ALLY
Dr. Drew Parker
My first experience with chiropractic occurred during my sophomore year in high school in which I injured my arm during football practice. The next morning I woke up physically unable to move my arm and elbow.
My mother, who had been a chiropractic patient for years due to her severe scoliosis, suggested I go to her chiropractor. I refused, thinking that chiropractic would not help my situation. I visited my medical doctor who offered me medications for the pain but had no answers as to how to get my arm mobile again in time for the championship game coming up in a few days.
Frustrated and skeptical, I had little choice but to give in to my mother’s request to try chiropractic. After the first adjustment I was amazed at how good I felt! Not only was my arm moving again but the headaches and lower back pain that had been constant during the football season started to melt away. After a few more treatments I felt like a new person and my interest in the human body started to grow.
I became fascinated with the biomechanics of the human body and how chiropractic could help people, especially athletes. After high school I attended Life University in Marietta to obtain my Bachelor’s and enter the Doctorate program.
During and after finishing school I worked with many athletes including the Kennesaw State lacrosse team and Atlanta Renegades football team. After completing school and national boards I worked in a clinic which had great success with their patients by blending chiropractic and physical therapy. We treated everyone from ultra-marathon runners and Olympic athletes to pregnant moms and newborns.
My family and I are very excited to be a part of the West Georgia Spine Center and serve Carrollton and the surrounding areas. The ability to help people on a daily basis is something that I feel truly blessed to be doing.
As well as Chiropractic Care, we offer Massage Therapy, Acupuncture and Trigger Point Injections
There’s no denying the power of bodywork.
Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.
