The Joint Chiropractic announces the hire of Dr. I-Keyanna Hamlin to run its NorthShore Clinic at 313 Manufacturers Road.
Born in Albany, N.Y., Dr. Hamlin is a graduate of Life University in Atlanta.
"My undergraduate degree is in biology," said Dr. Hamlin. "I attended a Historically Black College and University in Holly Springs, Ms., Rust College. I was pre-med but after meeting a representative from Life University, I felt led to pursue chiropractic instead.
"I became passionate about the philosophy which is really deep and began getting adjusted myself. The philosophy is vitalism - the power that made the body can heal the body. Also that all natural measures should be taken to heal the body as much as possible."
After graduating from Life University, Dr. Hamlin worked for a private chiropractic practice in Picayune, Ms. She later moved to Texas where she began working for The Joint Chiropractic.
"I liked The Joint's business model - clean, lean and simple," said Dr. Hamlin. "The Joint makes chiropractic care available to everyone by offering great wellness plans that keep the cost of adjustments very low, often less than an insurance co-pay. And by having flexible hours and being open nights and weekends, it makes it easy for those of us with challenging schedules to just walk in, get adjusted and get out, many times in under ten or fifteen minutes."
With her family now residing in Atlanta, Dr. Hamlin decided to make the move to Chattanooga. "I'd visited Chattanooga many times and fell in love with the scenery. It is so beautiful here. And now, I'm closer to my family, and that is important to me."
The Joint Chiropractic currently has four clinics open in the Chattanooga and Cleveland area located in Hixson, NorthShore, Paul Huff Parkway in Cleveland and now open on Gunbarrel next to Fresh Market. For more information call any of their four clinic locations.
