DR. Chandler Turnipseed, DC

Originally from Leesburg, Georgia, Dr. Chandler Turnipseed (Dr. T) was introduced to chiropractic care while racing motocross. After recovering from a compression fracture in his thoracic spine, Dr. T visited his local chiropractic clinic to help alleviate the remaining pain and stiffness. After his first visit not only had the pain decreased dramatically, but he could move better and more freely while racing. It was not long after this that Dr. T was treated with Active Release Techniques for the first time. Within the first week of treatments with ART, the chronic hip and leg pain that had started nearly 8 years before was gone. These two instances solidified Dr. T’s future path as a doctor of chiropractic.

Dr. T's interest in working with athletes stems from his days playing baseball and racing motocross. He has treated competitive athletes in many sports such as triathalon, marathon, powerlifting, Crossfit, baseball, football, soccer, and motocross.

Dr. T uses movement assessment to analyze how a person moves in not just their day to day life, but also in their work and sport-specific movements. This is key in proper diagnosis and treatment of their conditions. In addition to traditional chiropractic adjustments, Dr. T uses soft tissue techniques such as Active Release Technique and Graston Technique to better treat his patients and is certified as an Advanced RockTape Provider in Fascial Movement Taping.

Dr. T also uses low force adjusting methods such as Activator Technique (Advanced Proficiency Rated) and Flexion-Distraction Technique and uses nutrition and rehabilitation exercise to help his patients recover from injuries and to continue to perform and move at the best of their abilities. The methods Dr. T uses are also very effective in helping patients recover from automobile accidents and more chronic issues as well.

DR. Young K. Ryu, DC

Dr. Ryu graduated from McGill University in Montreal, Canada in 2000 having earned a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering. It was sports that eventually brought Dr. Ryu to his first experience with Chiropractic care. While playing tennis, he suffered a lower back injury, which was the worst pain he had ever experienced. It was affecting the quality of his life and his ability to do the things he loved to do. Initially he received traditional medical treatment without satisfying results. Fortunately, he was referred to a chiropractor for help. He began getting adjusted regularly and thanks to chiropractic, his low back injury was resolved.

Introduced to chiropractic at a young age, Dr. Jong Lee has relied on this natural healing power to cure a chronic shoulder injury that he sustained during a National Judo Tournament in high school. His injury left him crippled from daily activities and it was labeled as “surgical” from medical doctors. Discouraged, Dr. Lee looked to chiropractic which ultimately resolved his injury, returning his shoulder to a normal range of motion. Eventually, he was able to fully return to practicing Judo. Dr. Lee was inspired by the natural philosophy of chiropractic and it led him towards his degree in Doctor of Chiropractic. He graduated Cum Laude in 2006 from Life University in Marietta, GA.
