About Me

Diana Salzmann D.C., Certified IVCA
For the past 27 years, Dr. Diana Salzmann has been providing chiropractic care for patients in the Atlanta area. In addition to general care, she is a specialist in dealing with sports injuries and extremities.

Dr. Salzmann is a true believer in the benefits of physical fitness. She combined a Pilates studio with her chiropractic office, has received certification in fitness training, strength training, Pilates, and Pilates rehabilitation. She also practices what she preaches, running, lifting weights, stretching, and doing yoga at least six days a week. Her focus on fitness and restoring patients to optimum health earned her the nickname ‘the body mechanic.

Dr. Salzmann is also very active with animals. She has been a competitive equestrian for more than a decade, and competes in agility trials with her Border Collie, Oakley.

With this background, it was only natural for Dr. Salzmann to see the benefits of providing chiropractic care to animals, especially to horses. She completed an extensive training program open only to veterinarians and chiropractors and received certification from the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association.

Though all creatures with spines can benefit from chiropractic care, Dr. Salzmann recognizes that horses that carry riders, especially in competitive events, are in particular need of attention.

About Animal Chiropractic

About Animal Chiropractic

Animal Chiropractic is the Science, Art and Philosophy concerned with Good Health through Restoration and Maintenance of a properly functioning NeuroMusculoSkeletal System, without the use of drugs
or surgery.

Animal Chiropractic Care is a manual therapy, which can be used for many health and performance problems. It focuses on the biomechanical dysfunction of the spine and its effect on the entire nervous system throughout the body.

Animal Chiropractic Treatment does not replace traditional veterinary medicine; however, it can provide additional means of diagnosis and treatment options for spinal problems as well as biomechanical related musculoskeletal disorders.

Animal Chiropractic can often eliminate the source of acute or chronic pain syndromes.
