Originally from Leesburg, Georgia, Dr. Chandler Turnipseed, AKA 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.

He earned his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and Wellness from Georgia Southwestern State University, his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida, and received his certification as a Primary Spine Practitioner from the University of Pittsburgh.

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 triathlon, marathon, powerlifting, CrossFit, baseball, football, soccer, and motocross.

Dr. T uses movement/mechanical assessment to analyze how a person moves in their day to day life as well as in their work and sport-specific movements. This is key in proper diagnosis, classification, and treatment of their conditions. In addition to traditional chiropractic adjustments and joint mobilizations, Dr. T uses soft tissue techniques, such as Active Release Technique and Graston Technique, and rehab exercises to better help his patients.

Dr. T has completed post-graduate training at the University of Pittsburgh School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences and earned certification as a Primary Spine Practitioner (PSP). The PSP functions as primary-contact provider for patients with spine and other neuromusculoskeletal disorders. This involves taking responsibility for managing most patients without the need for special tests or specialist referrals. It also involves identifying the minority of patients who do require further diagnostic evaluations (X-ray, MRI, CT, EMG/NCV, or lab work) or specialized interventions (injections and surgery). Further, the PSP serves as inter-professional care coordinator, referring patients for the appropriate test or specialty service, and following up after these referrals to continually guide the patient toward management and resolution of their complaints. An important aspect of this role is educating the patient on the risks, benefits, and research evidence of all treatments so that, through a shared decision making process, appropriate choices can be made as to what is the best treatment for the patient. In addition, the PSP is tasked with helping the patient navigate the often-complex social systems, particularly for patients whose injuries arose from a work-related incident or personal injury.

 

Dr. T’s practice philosophy is simple: help you with your pain and then help you meet your goals.

"Communication about care is the top priority and my job is to create a plan tailored to you and for you to have an active role in meeting your goals. We’ll guide you along that path with the best evidence and information we have. We take our time, answer questions, and research more when needed."

This is called patient centered care and puts you at the front of treatment decisions.
