Back in the 1970's, a friend of mine was telling me about how they had problems opening and closing their hands and how after seeing a chiropractor, the movement in their hands was much better. So I decided to go to a chiropractor to see what they could do for me. Before being under chiropractic care I had frequent back pain and terrible migraines that I would get at least once a week. The migraines started in my early 30's and the medical doctor prescribed me to take Aspirin once a day, or at least whenever my headache would begin. But after just a few weeks of chiropractic care, I have not had a migraine since. That was almost 40 years ago. As a child, I had my booster shots and vaccines but now I know better. I don't believe it's necessary for schools to require their students to get shots. Unless it's necessary for someone to get better, why make everyone do it? I had one flu shot in my entire life and 3 day's later I got very sick. So I said, 'That's not for me [shots]... that's for somebody else.' I haven't had a shot since. On January 27, 2006 I had a minor surgery and was given a prescription pain medicine. For the first few days I used the medicine to help with my pain but I realized that I really didn't need them, so I stopped in the middle of the prescription. I haven't taken any pain medicine since then. In my 30's, I was taking a blood pressure medicine to help with the stress I was under for worrying about my autistic son. After seeing my chiropractor I realized that I no longer needed to take my blood pressure medicine and my stress level had gone down. My son lives in a group home now, but I think that if I had continued to bring him to the chiropractor that it would have helped him greatly. I am 75 years old today. I take no medications. I eat as healthy as I can, take my recommended vitamins and minerals, and walk about 5 miles a day (that's more than I did in my 20's-30's.) If I wasn't under regular chiropractic care for this long I believe I would be in a nursing home. And I want to stay out of that place! I visit Dr. Briegel about every two weeks to maintain my overall health. Every now and then I have lower back pain but that is fixed every time I am adjusted. Chiropractic helps keep me in line. I would recommend people to chiropractic, and seeing their chiropractor regularly. I would also recommend eating well and exercising. It's all about staying healthy and I'm in better health than I was when I started under chiropractic care! "We looked at his X-rays today and he has the neck of a 35 year old!"
I decided to seek chiropractic care because Western Medicine had failed me. Growing up I had a few allergies and very minor exercise induced asthma; nothing that ever caused me too much grief. All of that changed in October of 2014, when I came down with a respiratory cold that left me feeling like I couldn't breathe. I was suffering from chest tightness, constant post nasal drip and a thick or fuzzy feeling in my upper chest and trachea area. About a week after the initial cold, the shortness of breath became so severe that I could not complete a sentence without pausing for a breath. I started feeling so bad that I ended up going to Urgent Care (as a Registered Nurse, this was the LAST thing I wanted to do!). The MD prescribed a round of steroids and an antibiotic, and a rescue inhaler (Ventolin). I also received 2 breathing treatments in the office that day. While the breathing treatments helped mildly, I still felt very tight in my chest. Suffice it to say that I saw several MDs, including Allergists and Immunologists over the next 6 months. Each time I would go to the doctor, I would be prescribed another drug and told that it would clear me up. Before I knew it, I was taking Dulera, Ventolin, Singulair, Astelin, Zyrtec and Flonase, along with several anti-allergy and anti-asthma supplements, and I also completed a full year of allergy injections and I was STILL NOT NORMAL! Nothing was working. I finally broke down and spent the money on a Naturopath who suggested that I had mold in my home. I could hardly believe that this could be true since my house was very dry and clean. We didn’t even have a damp/musty smell in the basement. After a qualified building biologist inspected my home, we discovered mold in 3 HVACs. Having my home remediated was the first thing that brought my health to the next level. However, I was still suffering with allergies and asthma-like symptoms, though much less severe. It was at this point that I decided to give chiropractic a try. I have been routinely checked by either Dr. Laurie or Dr. Lou Briegel at Wellness Chiropractic Center for about 5 months now. After the first few weeks, I was able to wean off all of my medications, and now only occasionally use a natural supplement to bring relief to what I would consider to be a minor irritation. Not only are my asthma and allergy symptoms mostly resolved, but I also no longer suffer from heartburn and my immune system is much stronger. I had been getting sick almost every 2 weeks for the last year, and now I rarely catch a cold. I have seen the benefits of chiropractic first hand and know that everyone should be routinely checked by a chiropractor to maximize their health.

About me

Hi! My name is Lou Briegel and I'm a chiropractor and cellular healing specialist. Most people call me Dr. Lou.

I have been in practice in Canton, Georgia since 1981. Since I've been in practice I have also held positions as state representative for the International Chiropractors Association, Southeastern Chiropractic Federation and Congress of Chiropractic State Associations as well as various positions in the Georgia Council of Chiropractic including the Presidency. I have written many articles for chiropractic magazines as well as co-authored a book, "For The Love of Children", and authored the book, "For The Love of Children Too".

Prior to 1977, I was more interested in becoming a nutritionist and was studying that field. A friend of mine was a dancer in New York City and during a performance one night had injured her back. She called me to see if there was some kind of vitamin that she could take that would help. It wasn't just a coincidence, but two days before her injury; I had started reading a little book that talked about the benefits of chiropractic. I mentioned to her that I thought she should seek out the services of a chiropractor.

Later that night she called me and said I had to meet her to go with her to this chiropractor that she had gone to. I declined but she insisted because she was going to get his report and wanted me to meet him. He explained the benefits of chiropractic and the damaging effects of vertebral subluxations. After showing my friend's x-rays to her, he then proceeded to check my spine.

X-rays were recommended to me and I was absolutely appalled at what my spine looked like. Without having taken those x-rays, I would have never known the negative effects to my health that was taking place within my body. But there is no way in a million years that I could have guessed how much better I would have felt after my first adjustment. I was absolutely amazed!! I continued with regular chiropractic care and finally I decided to become a chiropractor.

In September of 1977 I met a dear sweet girl by the name of Laurie. She has honored me by becoming my wife, a strong chiropractor and partner and has blessed me by birthing both of our daughters at home.

Our two girls are just as sweet as Dr. Laurie, have been adjusted since birth, have had no drugs or medications, nor any vaccines, and to this day amaze me with their expression of total health and lack of any major illnesses.

Chiropractic has certainly blessed my life. I hope it will bless yours too.

Hello, my name is Dr. Laurie Briegel, and I am a chiropractor. Many patients have asked me over the years, how did you get started in chiropractic? This is my story:

When I was a child, I had a lot of health problems, mainly sick with colds and tonsillitis and such. I missed a lot of school and my grades suffered. I also had problems with my feet being turned in (pigeon toed) and I had to wear corrective shoes and when that didn't work the doctors recommended that we try corrective braces to straighten my feet and legs. None of the doctors that examined me ever looked at my hips or my spine, they insisted that the problem was with my legs.

When I was eighteen years old and in college, I met my future husband (Dr. Lou). He was studying to be a chiropractor and I was very interested in hearing about this kind of profession because I was interested in doing something in the allied health field, maybe microbiology or medical lab technology. I was thrilled to hear about the natural, drugless approach that chiropractic had to offer because I was personally sick of taking drugs that didn't make me healthier and in most cases made me feel worse.

I had accidentally strained my back during an exercise class and that was when I knew that something was telling me that I needed chiropractic care. I found a principled doctor (one that only uses hands on chiropractic) and I went and got x-rays and my first adjustment. The doctor had me come to his office to explain the principles of chiropractic and to show me how my spine relates to my health and how subluxations can cause ill health. I was amazed to see my x-rays... I had a double rotatory scoliosis, which means a severe curvature of my spine. He told me that is why my posture was so bad and why my feet turned in.

After only a few adjustments I was amazed at the difference in the way I felt... more energy, no headaches, no nervous stomach, no menstral cramps. I had a better attitude both mentally and spiritually. Within about a month I noticed a dramatic difference in my posture and my feet are no longer turning in! All in all I felt that my life was changed due to releasing the nerve pressure in my body. I knew that my life was made better for a reason and that reason was so that I may in turn release the imprisoned splendor in others.
