Meet The Doctors

Dr. Andrew St. Bernard, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Acworth

Dr. Andrew St. Bernard, commonly called Dr. Andrew by his patients, joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2017 as part of the Acworth clinic’s team of local chiropractors. “If I can’t adjust it,” he says, “it’s not meant to be adjusted.”

Dr. Andrew graduated from University of Western Ontario in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, and a doctorate of chiropractic from Life University.

He loves being engaged with those who come into The Joint seeking relief from pain and improved wellness. Their reactions are priceless.

“The thing I like best about being in the chiropractic field is seeing the relief in my patients’ faces after a great adjustment,” he says.

“The other thing I love is being part of a solution to end chronic health problems and promote a vitalistic, thriving lifestyle in my community.”

Working out, particularly in CrossFit and natural bodybuilding and physique, is what Dr. Andrew enjoys doing in his spare time.

Dr. Andrew hopes everyone appreciates going into the Acworth clinic as much as he does. “I enjoy creating an environment that is warm, friendly, and fun for my patients, and contributes positively to their livelihood,” he says.

In Case You Didn’t Know

In his daily routine, Dr. Andrew must have coffee, coconut oil, whey protein concentrate, and almond butter on hand “because of their healthy gains.”

Dr. Andrew says his ideal dinner party would include Jesus Christ, late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon, and comedic actors Jim Gaffigan and Terry Crews, “because dinner should always be accompanied by meaningful conversation and humor!”

When talk turns to the coolest thing each of them has done, Dr. Andrew says his go-to story will be about the time he dove off a 40-foot cliff into Caribbean waters.

Dr. Joel attended Life University in Marietta, GA, earning a bachelor’s degree in biology as well as a professional degree as doctor of chiropractic. While in school he helped raise his five kids who are now 13, 13, 14, 17, and 18 and worked part-time as an audio-visual specialist for Life U.

Dr. Joel has special interest in and is pursuing advanced training in scoliosis specific rehabilitative chiropractic care. His wife of 19 years, Sarah, was diagnosed with scoliosis as a young teenager and is part of the reason Dr. Joel became a chiropractor.
