Dr. Caitlin Waldrip
I’m Dr. Caitlin, it’s great that you’re here! I’m a Chiropractor in Douglasville, GA that focuses on correcting the spine and increasing patients’ health.
My family includes my wonderful and supportive husband, Wesley Waldrip; who is a Dietitian at Douglasville Nursing and Rehabilitation.
While learning about the body in Chiropractic College and having a background in Biology, I have a deep understanding on how the body functions at a cellular level. When all the organelles function the way they’re supposed to on a cellular level, the rest of the tissue (and furthermore organ system) can function more efficiently. This is the foundation of health and disease!
Professionally, I have an attraction to scoliosis cases. I have education in Chiropractic BioPhysics, but primarily adjust diversified. We use in office traction, exercises, and trigger point therapy to compliment the adjustment. Scoliosis tends to present in pains and aches before ever being diagnosed on an X-ray. This condition is dealt with on a case by case situation as there are many presenting scenarios. As a chiropractor, I’m trained to recognize these misalignments in children and adults.
Pediatric patients are another group that I have a natural affinity for. Babies and children respond incredibly well to chiropractic care. The development of the spine and natural curve formation astounds me. Growing humans learn to crawl before walking for a reason! We adjust and treat each age group appropriately because of the growth and maturity of the skeletal system. The adjustment for an infant is very light and gently performed as their spines are fragile. With that being said, the birthing process is very stressful for both the baby and mother. As kids develop, the spine can handle more pressure and eventually will be adjusted as an adult.
Chiropractic care is incredibly important when it comes to the health of the overall “unit” we know as family. The natural progression of families is to think, eat, and overall behave like one another either consciously or subconsciously. Therefore, we strive to make the family unit stronger, healthier, and more aware of choices in the day to day routine only to better the family as a whole.
Pain. Nobody wants to deal with pain. It is NOT normal, despite how “common” it may be in society. Pain is a presentation that something is wrong, it should not be ignored or masked. Chronic pain can be more difficult to deal with then acute pain, but I have had many successful cases where both types have resolved.
