Ooltewah Chiropractor, Dr. Donald Shelby
Like many Chiropractors, Dr Shelby's Career path was influenced and inspired by his own experience with Chiropractic. Dr Shelby's story is about stumbling on Chiropractic in an effort to find relief from headaches resulting from a car accident. The headaches he experienced after the accident were of an intensity that he had never had before. He first sought the traditional medical model for relief, but after having spent a considerable amount of time and money for relief he found that he was left with a headache that medicine would not cure. Willing to now look at options he had not considered before, a friend told him about her great chiropractor. Skeptical and hesitant, he pursued this approach. To his surprise and amazement not only did he find the chiropractor to be professional and caring, but he found immediate relief on the first treatment. This was such a wonderful surprise to discover this and it inspired him to pursue Chiropractic as a mission and a career and to share this misunderstood gem of a profession with the world. Read More.

My family moved here from Michigan in 2000 when I was five years old. I've completely fallen in love with beautiful Chattanooga and intend to stay here. I want to study environmental science and become and advocate for our earth. I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and my family and friends, and I love going to the beach. I've been going to a chiropractor for over a year now, and it has made such a difference in how I feel from day to day - no more aches and pains! My mom is the office manager at another chiropractor's office down the road, and when I agreed to sub in for her one day, I had no idea it would lead to a permanent job offer. Dr. Shelby happened to come to the office on the one day I was working there. He started a conversation with me, and I wound up telling him that I had been looking for a job for months with no success. It turned out that he needed to hire a front desk person by the end of that week. I applied, interviewed, and was hired within two days. Things like that don't happen by accident, and I love knowing that I'm supposed to be here, helping Dr. Shelby help others.
