Our chiropractor, Dr. Munira Patel, has been providing wellness care at the Dunwoody Chiropractic Center since 1995. By combining chiropractic care, massage therapy, physiotherapy and nutritional counseling, Dr. Patel helps patients reduce pain and reach their optimal health.
Many patients come to our Dunwoody chiropractic clinic looking for relief from pain associated with auto accident injuries, sports injury, or work-related injury. Some are struggling with the effects of stress, sciatica, or fibromyalgia. What they find is a knowledgeable and caring professional who uses a "whole person" approach to healing. Dr. Patel takes the time to perform an examination to look for any underlying causes of pain and then develops a treatment plan based on each patient's unique needs.
Her treatment plans are designed to work first to relieve the pain a patient is feeling and provide corrective care for any underlying causes of pain. This phase may involve a combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy to relieve pain and promote healing. Once a patient is feeling better, Dr. Patel will recommend a course of wellness care to help the patient continue to achieve the goal of living pain-free. This may include ongoing massage therapy, corrective exercises, nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice.

I believe that wellness can be achieved through touch. My mission is to provide therapeutic massage to help others deal with everyday stress,chronic illness, pain, and create an improved mental state. I am licensed to perform many different massage modalities such as deep tissue, trigger point, lymphatic drainage, sports, and prenatal.
I was adopted from South Korea at a young age and grew up in the Northwest. I have a younger brother that was also adopted. I attended Biola University and Boise State majoring in Pre-physical Therapy. Playing competitive soccer and having experience with sports medicine has given me experience and knowledge on injuries, anatomy, and body mechanics
On my free, spending time with my family and friends is very important to me. I am married with a 4 year old son and 2 Year old daughter. I enjoy attending church, going to the movies, traveling, and I love to cook. It is my passion to help others. With my interest in alternative medicine and holistic remedies, I'm always looking into ways the body can heal itself naturally. I am excited to work with Dr. Patel and look forward to integrating massage at Dunwoody Chiropractic
Our motto at the Dunwoody Chiropractic Center is "Pain-Free Living…Your Goal, Our Mission." Dr. Patel works with patients to help them achieve their goal of pain-free living. She believes that her skills as a chiropractor, combined with a course of massage therapy and wellness care, are the fundamental tools that are necessary for success without resorting to drastic measures such as invasive surgery or dealing with the negative side effects of prescription drugs. Other healing techniques she may prescribe at our chiropractic center include ultrasound, muscle, and neural stimulation, mechanical traction, cryotherapy, or moist heat therapy. Each recommendation is based on the patient's needs and goals.
Dr. Patel feels that the most important component of what she provides is her caring attitude and genuine concern for the ongoing health and wellness of our patients. That's why she may recommend lifestyle changes or suggest natural vitamins and mineral supplements that can help patients accelerate or maintain their journey to wellness and pain-free living.
