Chris Lammert, DC


Dr. Chris Lammert graduated from Life University in Marietta, Ga in 2017 as a Doctor of Chiropractic. As a former college athlete, lover of all sports, husband, father, and active with his local church, he is here to help you feel your best through holistic chiropractic care.

Dr. Lammert first experienced chiropractic care at the age of 14 while dealing with some right shoulder pain and left lower back pain that he attributed to playing baseball. He was informed that even though baseball may have had some effect on his shoulder, his pain may have originated from an auto accident that occurred two years prior. After about a month of care from a chiropractor in his hometown, he no longer had ANY lower back or shoulder pain while playing sports. This led Dr. Lammert to his interest in the human body and how it works.
