Hello, I am Dr. Bates, owner of Journey Family Chiropractic.
As a child I grew up in a household where I suffered from frequent sickness; allergies and headaches just to name a few. My mother’s remedy to everything was "Did you take your vitamins and have you drank enough water today?" Of course as a child I didn't know the significance of simply taking care of oneself to prevent illness. However, as I have grown, I have realized the power of remedying the cause, not covering up the symptoms of a problem.
The medical model has taught us that you visit your doctor when you are sick instead of fostering good health to prevent sickness. Just like a car, house, etc our bodies are meant to be taken care of. We manage to complete oil changes every three months for our vehicle but fail to take care of the one thing that is the most important, our health.
As I realized the importance of health this motivated me to pursue a health related profession. I went on to graduate with a Bachelors of Science in Biology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I later graduated with my Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, GA. During my education at Life University, I expanded my knowledge through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This extensive program provided me with an advanced understanding of chiropractic care for the pregnant and pediatric community. Along with this program, I became certified in the Webster Technique. This technique provides a specific adjustment to reduce the dysfunctions of the pelvis that comes with pregnancy. It allows mom and baby to be more comfortable during the preparation for birth.
With the knowledge I have gained, I am privileged to take care of patients from all backgrounds and age groups. As a mother of a vibrant 5 year old I know the importance of chiropractic care starting in utero. No matter the stage, give yourself and your family one of the greatest gifts - the healing power of chiropractic care. I thank you for choosing me to help you reach your health care goals. I welcome you to the Journey Family Chiropractic Family. he
