Our Nashville Chiropractic Clinic Team
Nashville Spine and Disc’s primary goal is to help you and your family to achieve and maintain optimal health through natural chiropractic care and welness programs. Our staff is dedicated to educating you about the many wonderful benefits of our drug-free and surgery-free method of pain relief and health care. Thousands of hours of advanced training, years of clinical experience, combined with sophisticated analysis and x-ray techniques enable us to help a wide range of spinal abnormalities that impede naturally healthy living. We all agree that Pain is Bad, never desirable, and detrimental to your quality of life! Pain is the body’s way of telling us something is wrong. We create a customized healing plan to address the cause of the pain. It is very common that patients leave us is a pain-free state. That is what we strive to achieve with each and every patient.
All things Spine and All Things Disc
Our chiropractors specialize in all conditions of the spine and discs. Our team instituted an effective treatment protocol that repairs herniated and ruptured discs when other physicians and clinics can’t. Our chiropractic team has helped hundreds of patients heal without back surgery.
Our clinic aims to help patients learn more about our effective treatments and personal plan to better health and wellness. Please feel free to browse our site and learn why having “a healthy spine equals a healthier body”.

Chiropractic Therapy Assistant (CTA), Registered Yoga Therapist (RYT)
Lauren graduated from Auburn University with a bachelor’s degree in apparel merchandising in 2011. She moved with her husband, Chris, to San Francisco, and in her time there she grew her yoga practice. Due to intense physical activity during training, she experienced injury first hand. Chiropractic work provided healing and enabled her to get back to what she loves. This prompted a career change and Lauren is now a CTA as well as a certified yoga teacher, with an emphasis on restorative movement. You can bribe Lauren with puppies, coffee and food covered in hot sauce.
