Dr. Donald R. Shelby

A place for natural healing.


Hello and welcome! My name is Dr. Donald Shelby. I attended Chiropractic School at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia. Although I was excited to be in school, I still sought proof - proof that chiropractic work was worth doing. I wanted to make sure there was a scientific explanation for all of this. I was ready to challenge my professors and basic chiropractic theory. However, I found out quickly that they did not need my help proving anything at all. Everything had already been proven, tested, and rooted deeply in sound science, theory, and principle. I spent the next four years immersed in chemistry, physics, microbiology, biochemistry, anatomy, and physiology, diagnosis, adjusting skills, x-ray analysis, and nutrition. I finally found what I had been looking for: a way to assist people in achieving optimal health and wellness through natural methods!

My focus and concern as a Doctor of Chiropractic is to give every person I comes into contact with the opportunity to thrive and express optimal health. Helping you to eliminate obstacles from lifestyles, diets, and ultimately the nervous system are the tools by which I can help people achieve their goals.

Watching patients and their families change, grow, and heal is extremely gratifying for me as a doctor.

Most of my care involves analysis with some stretching and use of a non invasive hand held instrument called an activator gun. At times depending on the need, I may use another system of analysis and treatment called Applied Kinesiology to assist my patients in coming back into alignment with their health.
