“I admit it, I was a skeptic,” remembers Dr. David Shapiro.

At the age of 16, I didn’t want to have knee surgery from a wrestling injury. Because I did not have back pain, I was reluctant to turn to chiropractic, but as the only option instead of surgery, I made an appointment to see a chiropractor.

I'll never forget that first treatment. It felt as if a huge weight was suddenly lifted from my body. My misaligned spine was putting excessive pressure on the side of the injured knee. Dr. Galbraith balanced out my body with adjustments to the spine, allowing my injured knee to finally heal - no surgery! That was the moment I decided I was going to be a chiropractor.”

After graduating in 1993 from Life University of Chiropractic, Dr. Shapiro settled here in the Atlanta area with his wife, Arlene, to establish his practice. He has been part of the University extension faculty since 2007 and opens his practices to senior interns, providing a training ground for future doctors of chiropractic.

Treating Doctor

Growing up with her chiropractor father and her nurse practitioner mother, Dr. Dennis always had a respect for how the human body worked, as well as a passion for helping people.

With the intention of going to medical school, she began her studies at James Madison University in 2011, but concluded that she didn’t like the idea of prescribing medication. Through her studies of anatomy and physiology, she knew that there was another way to not only treat pain, but more importantly, to heal people.

“I never understood the idea of putting chemicals into the body for it to function better. Our culture is bombarded from all media sources telling us we need medical intervention for every health issue. In many cases, this is not true. CSS’ specialized technique in chiropractic uses the formula Better Structure=Better Function. Think of a bridge: its structure dictates the function. Poor structure and that bridge will fail. The same is with the body. Improve the structure, watch the pain go away and realize your health potential!

Dr. Dennis graduated summa cum laude, from Life University College of Chiropractic in December 2015. She is currently working towards certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

After an intensive training at the Ideal Spine Doctor Institution, she is now basic certified in Chiropractic BioPhysics, the spinal remodeling technique that is our specialty at Complete Spine Solutions.
