Meet Dr. Kara Zajac

It was Dr. Kara’s junior year in high school in Massachusetts. She was a long-distance runner with the hope and promise of a track scholarship. In an instant, her reality changed.

Dr. Kara suffered a severe injury that prevented her from running, sometimes even walking. She saw the best specialists in New England. After a year of treatment and some $30,000 in medical bills later, however, Dr. Kara was nowhere near better. Her doctors even suggested putting her on psychological drugs. Not knowing what the answer to her pain was, but knowing that wasn’t it, Dr. Kara sufficiently lost hope in the medical field and in herself. She didn’t think she’d ever run or feel her usual self again.

Your Body Heals from the Inside out

During this time a neighbor suggested that Dr. Kara see a chiropractor. The chiropractor was happy and his office was positive, vibrant, and alive. At no time did he push drugs as the solution to her pain. Though he couldn’t label what was causing Dr. Kara’s chronic pain the chiropractor explained that when a bone puts pressure on a nerve, the body doesn’t work right. The chiropractor gave Dr. Kara her first adjustment and she felt remarkably better.

Dr. Kara left her first chiropractic appointment with her doctor’s phrase ringing in her head, “Your body heals from above down, inside out. Drugs are not necessary to fix all problems. Unfortunately, our society trains us to think that way.” Looking back on this moment Dr. Kara recalls, “The revelation of how the body works, of the innate power the body has to heal itself and what true, total health meant was so cool. It was something I wanted to share with other people to make their lives better.”

After a course of chiropractic treatment, Dr. Kara was able to run again. She had found the career that she wanted to go after, and began applying to chiropractic colleges. She attended Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, Georgia, and became a licensed chiropractor in early 2000. Two years later she would open her own practice, Nature’s Way Chiropractic in Dawsonville.

Our Bodies Are Self-Healing Entities

Dr. Kara’s biggest challenge as a chiropractor is breaking patients’ medical mindsets. “They live in a medical model where if you have pain, you take a pill.” She likes to open patients’ minds, as hers was opened, and say, ‘You’re fine the way you are. Let’s just allow your body to work better as a whole.'”

Dr. Kara’s life passion is to share with her patients the knowledge that we are self-healing entities, meant to thrive. When we remove the stress (physical, chemical, or emotional) causing our bodies to be dis-eased, they will naturally work correctly.
