North Atlanta Chiropractic Center

Dr. Dana Kind and North Atlanta Chiropractic Center have been providing quality chiropractic health care for more than a decade. Our gentle holistic approach and natural solutions for many common health issues have improved the lives of many Metro Atlanta residents. Our chiropractic services are tailored to the needs of each unique patient.

Our services include a holistic approach based on sound medical knowledge. We specialize in non-surgical Spinal Decompression, Chiropractic Care, pain management, and physical rehabilitation. We specialize in healing injuries caused by automobile accidents, sports injuries, and workplace injuries. We can help reverse the effects of injuries caused by repetitive motion, poor posture, and poor lifting habits. At North Atlanta Chiropractic, we believe in promoting wellness through injury prevention and health maintenance.

Chiropractic Care
The chiropractic perspective on health and disease emphasizes two fundamental concepts:

1) the structure and condition of the body influences how the body functions and its ability to heal itself;
2) the mind-body relationship is instrumental in maintaining health and in the healing processes.

Although chiropractic shares much with other health professions, its emphasis and application of philosophy that distinguishes it from modern medicine. Chiropractic philosophy gravitates toward a holistic ("total person") approach to healing which combines elements of the mind, body and spirit and maintains that health depends on obedience to natural laws, and that deviation from such laws can result in illness.

Spinal Decompression

The discs of the spine receive nourishment through blood vessels until approximately the age of 20. At this point, the disc has been filled with a lifetime supply of nourishment. However, the disc has to make that supply of nourishment last a lifetime. Through aging and with normal wear and tear, we use the nourishment and all experience a slow degeneration of the discs of the spine.  This is normal aging. The more “stress” you put on the disc, the more you use up the nourishment, weakening and deteriorating the disc, creating a problem. One of the amazing benefits of decompression is that it heightens the disc space, and is seen to return it to normal size and function.

Bulging Disc

The jelly-like substance is prone to injury and the most common situation causing problems is one that puts pressure on the disc. The pressure causes the jelly material inside the disc to “bulge” or “slip” out of place. As this occurs, the bulge itself puts pressure on other structures near the disc like the nerves. That’s how bulging discs cause pressure to build up on the nerve.

Herniated Disc

Herniated discs are also often referred to as ruptured discs. A disc can bulge without herniating. When the jelly- like nucleus pulposis is under pressure, it can bulge. But, when the pressure is excessive, it can herniated (rupture) through the outer band called the annulus fibrosis. As the "herniated" disc material spills out, a portion can press on a nerve, causing pain and accompanying radiation and weakness of the muscles involved.

The nerve can get "pinched" resulting in the condition of sciatica, radiating pain to the buttocks and/or lower extremity (leg and calf).  Over 90% of herniated discs occur in the lowest two levels of the lumbar spine, between L4/L5 and L5/S1.


Decompression relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain comes about as a result of drawing areas of herniated disc back into place.

Decompression achieves this by creating negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative intra-discal pressure. This creates essentially a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieve pressure.
As the ligaments that hold disc material in place become stretched or torn due to bulging and herniation, decompression strengthens the ligament bands that hold the disc material in place to heal & prevent future recurrence.

In most cases the healing process requires only a few weeks of treatment on an out-patient basis. We have committed to undergo expert training in the delivery of decompression and dedicate a large portion of our practice to the relief of severe and chronic low back pain. Patients come to us to return to a normal pain free life.

Cold LASER Therapy
Low level laser therapy may be used any place there is acute or chronic pain or inflammation, and, low level laser therapy may be effective on any disease or disorder.  We have been using Low Level Lasers to assist our patients for many years and the combination of Laser and Chiropractic are very effective in reducing pain and inflammation.

• Over 2500 Clinical Research studies have shown that Low Level Laser Therapy:

* Reduces Pain
* Reduces Inflammation
* Enhances Lymphatic Drainage
* Releases Tight Muscles
* Speeds Bone Repair
* Increases Cellular ATP
* Is Antiviral & Anti-fungal
* Re-polarizes Damaged Cell Walls
* Helps Repair Damaged DNA
* Stimulates Healing Enzymes

 Basic Information on Q 1000 Low Level Laser Therapy

• One laser of single wavelength will not treat all diseases and disorders.

The Q-laser System is the only low level laser therapy SYSTEM available, with all the tools needed for every health problem you’ll ever encounter. The SYSTEM combines multiple lasers offering both harmonizing/relaxing and stimulating levels of energy, multiple wavelengths, and multiple frequencies.

• The Patented Q1000 uses 12 true laser diodes and 8 LED’s to computerize frequency and power density output, effectively “Piggy-Backing” the beneficial effects of the visible light onto the penetrating effects of the infrared light.

• The Q1000 has 7 unique wavelengths of laser energy combined into 3 computerized per-programmed modes, which produce 63 frequencies. These 63 unique frequencies harmonize at the cellular level with 95 % of the frequencies within the human or animal body.

• Four additional programmable modes enable you to customize special frequencies for problem conditions for yourself or within your practice.

• The Q1000 is the only laser that creates a penetrating Soliton Wave.

Soliton Wave Technology eliminates depth of penetration issues and ensures that the laser energy will get to the needed point in the body.

• The system has two lasers for stimulating hard tissue and bone.

The 660 and 808 Enhancing Lasers are useful for non-invasive “needle-less” acupuncture and trigger point release, controlling bone infection, stimulating bone growth, cartilage problems, tendon problems, ligament problems, nerve damage, and MORE!

• The Q1000 system is computer controlled, uses safe levels of power, and is portable.

The small, “go anywhere” Q1000 laser provides the most unique multi-wavelength, safe, easy to use laser in the world. This system is available for use in the office or you can purchase the unit for home use.  Just contact our Doctor for more information.
