The Clinical Team
Dr. David Shapiro, DC, Advanced Certification in Chiropractic BioPhysics
Chief Wellness Officer (CWO)
“I admit it, I was a skeptic,” remembers Dr. David Shapiro.
“At the age of 16, I didn’t want to have knee surgery from a wrestling injury. Because I did not have back pain, I was reluctant to turn to chiropractic; but, with no other option except surgery, I made an appointment to see a chiropractor.
I’ll never forget that first treatment. It felt as if a huge weight was suddenly lifted from my body. My misaligned spine was putting excessive pressure on the side of my injured knee. Dr. Galbraith balanced out my body with adjustments to the spine, allowing my injured knee to finally heal – no surgery! That was the moment I decided I was going to be a chiropractor.”
After graduating in 1993 from Life University of Chiropractic, Dr. Shapiro settled here in the Atlanta area with his wife, Arlene, to establish his practice. He has been part of the University’s extension faculty since 2007 and opens his practices to senior interns, providing a training ground for future doctors of chiropractic.
Dr. Alyssa Dennis, DC, Certification in Chiropractic BioPhysics
Lead Treating Doctor
Growing up with her chiropractor father and her nurse practitioner mother, Dr. Dennis always had a respect for how the human body works, as well as a passion for helping people.
With the intention of going to medical school, she began her studies at James Madison University in 2011. In studying anatomy and physiology, however, she knew there was another way, besides prescribing medication, not only to treat pain, but to heal people.
“I never understood the idea of putting chemicals into the body for it to function better.”
“Although we are bombarded with claims that medication is needed for every health issue, in many cases, that is not true. The CSS specialized chiropractic technique is based on the formula ‘Better Structure = Better Function.’ The human body is much like a bridge: If the structure is poor, it will fail. Improve the structure, and function is restored. For the body, that means pain is gone, and health potential can be realized.”
Dr. Dennis graduated summa cum laude, from Life University College of Chiropractic in 2015, and is currently working toward certification from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Also, after intensive training, she is now basic certified in Chiropractic BioPhysics, the spinal remodeling technique that is a CSS specialty.
Dr. Tara VanVranken, DC, Certification in Chiropractic BioPhysics
As an athlete her entire life, Dr. Tara grew up with a unique respect of proper biomechanics and spinal alignment with interest in how these factors can greatly influence athletic performance and daily function. After a softball injury, she sought chiropractic care.
“An athlete was who I was and what I devoted my life to.”
This Doctor of Chiropractic was able to get her back on the field almost immediately. “An athlete was who I was and what I devoted my life to. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not discovered chiropractic.”
Dr. Tara began her studies at Ohio Wesleyan University in 2007, majoring in exercise science. Thanks to her life changing results from her chiropractor, she played collegiate softball at OWU for 4 years. Continuing chiropractic care was a priority throughout her collegiate career because she understood how much getting adjusted contributed to her ability to perform and compete at a higher level. After expressing her desire to help people without the use of medicine or surgery, her chiropractor inspired her to start chiropractic school.
Dr. Tara started her chiropractic journey at Life University in 2012. She graduated Cum Laude in September 2016. It was in school that she realized that you can change the structure of the spine to function and feel better. This realization brought her to CSS, where a specialized technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) is used to do just that. She received intensive training at the Ideal Spine Doctor Institution to become basic certified in Chiropractic BioPhysics.
Dr. Mike Weiner, DC, Certification in Chiropractic BioPhysics
“A herniated disc may have been the best thing that happened to me” Dr. Mike Weiner says with a smile on his face. It all started when he was 10 years old. He had a herniated disc. He was bedridden for 3 months – but felt like he was trapped for an eternity. He couldn’t move. He never knew if he would get better.
“Only you are in control of your life.“
It was at this point he had two options: get surgery as a child stuck with hardware in his spine for the rest of his life or receive regular chiropractic adjustments to let his body heal itself. Fortunately for him, his father is a chiropractor and not only did he heal naturally by regular chiropractic adjustments, he became a three sport athlete throughout high school and continues to play baseball, run trails, hike, and paddle board down the Chattahoochee river on the weekends.
“Having a herniated disc proved to myself that no one is controlled by a diagnosis – only you are in control of your life. It is this passion that I vow to instill in others to live to their true health potential so everyone can be in complete control of their health.”
Dr. Mike Weiner graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a major of Kinesiology – Movement Science and immediately enrolled into Life Chiropractic College where he received a Doctorate of Chiropractic as cum laude in both institutions. He is certified in Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP), the most evidence based natural spinal corrective technique in chiropractic.
