Dr. Shelby Kemp joined The Joint Chiropractic family of local healthcare providers in 2020 with her arrival at the Sugar Hill clinic location. A graduate of Southern Illinois University who got her bachelor's of science degree in biomedical science, she went on to earn her doctorate of chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Fla.
“The thing I love most about being in the chiropractic field is seeing my patients’ quality of life improve after adjustments,” she says. “It’s gratifying being able to talk and interact with my patients and develop a relationship with them.”
A native of southern Illinois, Dr. Kemp worked in Lawrenceville prior to working in Sugar Hill. She spends time with her two dogs, Lucy and Jax, and her cockatiel Reggie. When she’s not working or walking the dogs, she enjoys hiking and going to the beach.
She knew chiropractic was her calling based on her personal experience. “I had horrible back pain in college, so bad that I was unable to drive,” she says. “I did not want to go to a doctor where they would just give me medication to cover up the pain. I decided to try a chiropractor. I left after the first visit and felt immediate relief. I continued to go and kept feeling better after each visit, and I knew I wanted to help others feel this relief!”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Kemp says the one thing she always keeps in her refrigerator is spicy mayo for the sushi she loves so much.
If she could bring together four people from history for a dream dinner party, Dr. Kemp would sit down “with Robin Williams for his sense of humor to keep the conversation light and happy; Gordon Ramsay, who will be cooking; escape artist Harry Houdini to provide the entertainment; and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to pay for it.”
Dr. Kemp loves to travel, and a solo trip to Ireland was one of the most amazing experiences of her life, she says. “The scenery is stunning and the castles were absolutely beautiful.”
My introduction to Chiropractic care
My very first visit to the Chiropractor was as a result of an injury sustained at work. I was working in the mailroom of a large corporation and hurt my back lifting a box one eventful afternoon. The pain left me in agony for over 3 weeks. I went to one doctor after another in the "Worker's Compensation" circle. I was getting no relief and there was talk of surgery. It was then that a friend of mine mentioned chiropractic. I was intrigued so I inquired about chiropractic care as part of my rehab, but was met with stern warnings. I was told that if I didn't follow the treatment regimen or sought care outside of the workers comp umbrella, my claims would be come void and that I would be responsible for my care. My fear of surgery led me underground so to speak. Unbeknownst to the workers comp doctors, I sought chiropractic care through my friends chiropractor. This was unlike any experience I had ever had in a doctor's office before. Within just a few adjustments, I was back on my feet and back at work. I learned that Chiropractors are very skilled and knowledgeable doctors who are trained in many areas . I learned that not only do Chiropractors help with back and neck injuries, but they truly care about their patients' problems. But most of all, I realized how much I had been helped by the Chiropractor and how I couldn't wait to help people in the same way, so I become a Chiropractor myself!
I was accepted to attend the prestigious Life University of Chiropractic right here in Atlanta. During my 4 years at Life University, I learned the only limitations that we have are those that we accept or believe. Upon graduation from Life University, I started my career as a Chiropractor in the Atlanta area . A few years out of school, I opened a practice in Eastman, GA where I served a large population of Middle Georgia for over 11 years. During that time our office treated over 6,000 new patients. In 2010 I moved back to the Atlanta area to be closer to my son.
I continue to further my knowledge by attending frequent educational seminars on several health-related topics, including nutrition, sports care, wellness, weight loss and pediatric care. I am currently involved with the Georgia Chiropractic Association and the International Chiropractic Association.
My take on true health...
My health philosophy is simple. True health comes from a properly functioning nervous system. Your nervous system controls every process in your body, from your immune system to the functioning of your organs and muscles. When your nervous system is not able to function properly, commonly from the interference of spinal misalignments, your body is not able to function at 100%, causing ill-health and "disease". I feel that everyone should have the benefit of pure health through Chiropractic! It's safe, effective and doesn't require harmful drugs or painful surgery . More and more people around the world are discovering the benefits of Chiropractic care. This is because it is founded on the principles of overall wellness and not on treating symptoms.
Chiropractors need chiropractic care too!
Chiropractic has played a huge role in my own personal health as well. I receive adjustments from my Chiropractor on a weekly basis while watching my overall health and wellness constantly grow to new heights.
As a professional chiropractor in Buford, I do my best to stay abreast of all the latest happenings in the field of chiropractic care. This amazing profession never ceases to amaze me and my aim is to help as many people as I can on a daily basis. I am as excited about this profession as the day I graduated from college. When I look into a patient’s happy face...that is all the motivation I need to come to work the next day and do my best to improve their overall health.
