Why Should You Choose Eastside Chiropractic?

Eastside Chiropractic started with a modest beginning 17 years ago in an old house on the eastside of Athens, Georgia. During the time that has passed, the practice has grown leaps and bounds but not left behind the humble core of the practice-- exceptional patient care.

Dr. Bryan Hooper was born and raised in the Five Points area of Athens and attended the University of Georgia to earn his bachelor's degree in exercise physiology, which he first used as a trainer at the University of Georgia before moving on to physical therapy at St. Mary’s hospital. From there he felt the pull to do more for patients seeking care in the area. He felt a calling to enter the field of chiropractic and returned to school at Life University, graduating with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. Immediately post-graduation, Dr. Hooper started his own practice that has flourished primarily from word of mouth referrals.

Though the office itself may be considered small to some, the scope of practice is wide. Specialized individual care is given to each patient by using current methods and techniques to provide relief and aid patients on their path to wellness and a pain-free life. Treatments are administered to relieve pain from: TMJ, sciatica, arthritis, IT band tension, migraines, bursitis, bulging or herniated discs, forward head posture, joint pain, sport related injuries, and more. A frequently prescribed treatment for living a well life is massage therapy.

In addition to Dr. Hooper, two well trained licensed massage therapists on staff provide relief of symptoms and ailments. Ashley McDonald has nearly eleven years of experience treating a litany of ailments and has been with Eastside Chiropractic for five years, since relocating to the Athens area from South Georgia. Katie Crawford recently joined the staff bringing an additional ten years of experience to the table after working with the University of Georgia Gym Dawgs for several years.


Combined, the doctors and therapists at Eastside Chiropractic bring 55 years of experience treating the human body to the table, offering expert care to all who walk through the door seeking the best in healthcare on their journey to a full life.
