Chiropractor Christopher Dohnal D.C.
A Sports Injury Led Me to Chiropractic
Chiropractor in Nashville, Dr. Chris Dohnal was a runner in college. During my last year, I had an injury that brought me to my first experience with chiropractic. The medical doctors I saw for my injury couldn’t figure out what was wrong despite all the expensive tests they were running.
They even told me the pain was in my head, yet my knee was swelling up to the size of a softball every time I tried to run!
Mild low back pain started to accompany my knee problems. My dad brought me to his chiropractor. I was surprised to find out that it could also help with my knee problems. My ankle, knee and low back pain went away after being adjusted.
I’d always wanted to become a doctor and help people, thinking I would specialize in sports medicine. After my visit to a chiropractor, I was amazed that he could help me without drugs or surgery. It started me on a path of exploring chiropractic, and the rest is history.
An Education in Natural Health
Dr. Dohnal attended Mount Union College in Ohio to receive a Bachelor of Science in Biology. He then continued on to Logan College of Chiropractic. ‘’Helping people without resorting to drugs or surgery was the most appealing part of chiropractic.” While at school, Dr. Dohnal met several different doctors and worked in their clinics, seeing what they did at a hands-on level.
In addition, Dr. Dohnal is certified in Selective Functional Movement Assessments (SFMA), which he uses to thoroughly assess our patients. He’s also certified in Rock Tape, a type of Kinesio® Tape that works well for our patients suffering from both acute and chronic conditions.
Dr. Dohnal is a member of the Tennessee Chiropractic Association.
A Busy, Active Life
When they’re not in the office, Dr. Dohnal and his wife Linda stay busy with their three young boys, Lucas, Garrett and Miles. They attend ball games or go fishing, hiking and camping. Their active, healthy family eats a diet rich in whole foods and receives regular chiropractic care. Dr. Dohnal is still an avid runner.
Dohnal Chiropractic supports Toys for Tots by holding a drive in our office every Christmas.
