Dr. Hunter's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hunter "Dr. Carolyn Hunter completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Alberta in Canada in 1986. Following graduation she continued her studies in the field of Psychoneuroimmunology and became fascinated with the powerful relationship between our thoughts and attitudes and our health. This proved to be a natural segue into the study of Chiropractic. In 1996 she began her graduate studies at Life University in Atlanta, Ga graduating magna cum laude as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2000. Upon graduation, Dr. Hunter first practiced in Europe where she had the opportunity to practice in both hospital based and private practice settings. She began extensive training in Chiropractic Neurology in London with the Carrick Institute and is currently working toward Board Certification in this Specialty. In addition to pursuing advanced training in neurology she has participated in post graduate training in a broad spectrum of clinical techniques including Chiropractic Biophysics, Sacral Occipital Technique, Activator Methods, and Pediatrics. She has had the privilege of working with a wide spectrum of patients in her practice all with unique and varied needs and goals. Dr. Hunter has treated world class professional athletes, children with disabilities and autism, weekend warriors, golfers, moms, dads and grandmas and even moms to be. Dr. Hunter relocated to South Carolina with her family in 2005 and has been practicing in the Charleston area ever since. Her focus has always been geared toward optimizing human performance and wellness by helping her patients achieve their personal best. She is nationally certified in Non –Surgical spinal decompression, her ability to treat disc injuries makes her the ideal choice as Back Pain is the # 1 Cause for disability and worker compensation claims in America. Dr. Hunter was the first female doctor chosen to serve on the International Advisory Board on Spinal Decompression, whose honorary chairman is Neurosurgeon Dr. Norman Shealy, who was educated at Duke Medical School and taught at Harvard Medical School. Recently Spinal Decompression has been shown in in the McClure study to be 91% effective, which involved over 500 pre-surgical candidates, who were able to avoid surgery. Providing spinal decompression will often eliminate the need for surgery with a median cost of $42,000, not counting time lost from work, as well as future disability. Dr. Hunter maintains a special interest in helping people with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, headaches and various neuralgias as well as low back pain, and neck pain and those injured in auto or workplace through natural, painless and non-invasive techniques."
