Dr. Josh Kolonick
Dr. Josh Kolonick, owner of Gonstead Chiropractic Clinic, P.C., exclusively practices the Gonstead Technique, a highly specific and effective form of Chiropractic.
Before taking ownership of Gonstead Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Kolonick spent several years studying under Dr. Michael Stewart, a Gonstead Diplomate who was well known in the Chiropractic community for his clinical skill and expertise.
Dr. Kolonick received his Chiropractic certification at Life University in 2004, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and served as President of the Gonstead student club on campus. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Clinical Exercise Physiology from Boston University and completed extensive post-graduate work in exercise rehabilitation of the spine. In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Kolonick serves as an adjunct faculty member and PEAK Internship mentor at Life University. He is also a member of the Georgia Chiropractic Council and Gonstead Clinical Studies Society.
As a high school track athlete, Dr. Kolonick first discovered the profound impact Chiropractic care can have on one’s health. He sustained a spinal injury while running, and when other treatments were unsuccessful, his coach recommended that he see a Chiropractor. Chiropractic care not only helped him return to the track in a short time, he also became free of the migraines and chronic ear infections he had been experiencing since early childhood.
When he’s not at the clinic helping his patients, Dr. Kolonick enjoys running in local road races, home improvement projects, and spending time with friends and family.
Enjoying the one-on-one experience with patients, she decided to specialize in massage therapy. In 2001, she graduated from The Academy of Somatic Healing Arts (ASHA) as a Certified Massage Therapist specializing in neuromuscular therapy. Neuromuscular therapy is a very specific method of treating and preventing soft tissue injuries and chronic pain. Shanna also has extensive experience in relaxation and sports massage, and can accommodate patients with pressure preferences ranging from light to deep.
In her spare time, Shanna enjoys running and weight lifting. She has practiced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has a black belt in Muey Thai. She is currently practicing Qigong (pronounced Chegong), which is similar to Tai Chai. Shanna has been receiving chiropractic care since she was 18 and believes chiropractic and massage therapy go hand-in-hand.
