Dr. Marie Kruzel
is a 1995 graduate of Life College in Marietta, and studied at Florida State University for her undergraduate degree.

In addition to her background in the treatment of spine related injuries and conditions, she also has extensive training and background in conditions of the extremities as well.
What really separates her from many of her peers is her philosophy of combining several different types of physical medicine under one roof all in the effort to benefit patients and help treat their pain faster and more effectively. She believes that not only is there a need for chiropractic to move the bone but also the need for Physical therapy/ Athletic training to stretch and strengthen the appropriate muscles, ligaments and tendons supporting the bones and structure (curves of the spine) in order to completely alleviate the symptoms and the problem. The last piece of the puzzle is combining traditional forms of medical pain management and medical diagnosis to help speed the recovery time and more effectively diagnosis conditions that need referrals.
