About Dr. Ackerman

Gonstead Chiropractor

Dr. Scott Ackerman

Dr. Ackerman grew up in New York then moved to Florida at age 13. He attended the University of Florida for his Undergraduate Degree and received a B.S. in Business and Marketing in 1986. After realizing chiropractic was his true goal, Scott went to Life Chiropractic College, graduating in 1990 with a D.C. (Doctor of Chiropractic).

Dr. Ackerman has 4 wonderful children: Aaron, Sam, Todd and Lindsay. He has lived happily in Alpharetta for the last 25 plus years. Scott's vices are tennis and golf, which are aided by weekly adjustments.

Why did Scott choose chiropractic?

Dr. Ackerman played a lot of tennis in college and his back was always sore. He procrastinated for a while but finally couldn't take it anymore! Dr. Ackerman went to a chiropractor and never had a problem again!!!

"I got into chiropractic because I like helping people and I liked the hands on approach to healing. I was amazed that everything is controlled by your brain and spinal cord and that the body is a self healing organism."

-Dr. Ackerman

Would you like to know why the first adjustment was given?

The first adjustment was made in 1895 on a janitor named Harvey Lillard. Harvey was deaf. A man named D. D. Palmer noticed a bump on his back. When he pushed the bump away, his hearing was restored! That is how chiropractic was started, not with lower back pain or headaches, but with a deaf man who had a lump on his back.

This is a prime example of how interconnected our bodies really are, and how chiropractic can play a large role in your wellness!

Dr. Ackerman is a member of the Georgia Chiropractic Council as well as the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society and Proudly uses the Gonstead Technique!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Common Questions

General questions

Our bodies are programmed to be healthy! Chiropractic care helps restore optimum function. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. The brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body control these important functions. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spinal column protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots.

If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. Doctors call this the "Vertebral Subluxation Complex," which, when broken down is defined as "Vertebrae" -- the individual bones of the spine, "Subluxation" -- less than a total dislocation and "Complex"-- consisting of more than one part. A chiropractic doctor's job is to locate and correct the subluxation complex and educate the patient on how to maintain the correction.

For Skeptics Only

Answers to Common Questions

General questions

While chiropractic is unique and different, it certainly isn't something that you have to "believe in". Chiropractic, like gravity, works whether you believe in it or not. Instead, chiropractic produces results because it acknowledges scientifically confirmed facts:

The nervous system controls everything in your body. Nerve impulses flow from the brain, down the spinal cord where nerves branch off to every organ and tissue. Impulses sent back to the brain confirm that the body is functioning normally.

The bones of the spine can mis-align and interfere with this exchange of communication by irritating the corresponding nerves. Dysfunction and ill health will result from a compromised nervous system. Chiropractic care removes the interference and helps restore the integrity of the nervous system thereby promoting health and healing.
