Healthy From The Inside Out

We don’t just help people get out of pain. We are in the business of restoration and education, working to help the body heal itself naturally from the inside out and teaching families what real health looks like.

As one of the largest family chiropractors in Smyrna, Georgia, we are building a community of health and wellness founded on the power of quality chiropractic care. Our care services extend to every member of the family, it doesn’t matter if you are man, woman, child or grandparent, we are here to help you!

Dr. Jamie Michael

I was born and raised in Milledgeville, GA. I had no clue what chiropractic was. I like most people just thought you went when you were in pain or a car accident. I was inspired by the movie “Patch Adams” and knew I wanted to be a physician that took care of children. I was discouraged from becoming a pediatrician after discovering first hand in college the poor state of our medical system. I ended up getting an amazing job as a chemist for a large pharmaceutical company which opened my eyes to the stark reality of drug abuse and opioid addiction in our country.

My mom was a victim of the mismanagement of prescription medications through her chemotherapy and her immune system was destroyed, and she was severely depressed, and plagued with chronic pain. Fortunately, she was encouraged to seek chiropractic care. After three months of chiropractic care, she went into remission from cancer after years of mainstream treatment. My first visit to a chiropractor was in 2006 after I suffered from a yoga injury and then I understood why my mom had been able to heal and gain back her quality of life.

While in school, I reaffirmed my passion for children, and studied under the leading Pediatric and Prenatal Chiropractors in the world. I opened my practice in 2012 in Smyrna, GA, and I haven’t stopped talking about the power of chiropractic since.

My “WHY” for practicing chiropractic is constantly evolving. Initially, it was for myself but now I practice for my children, Therine and Ryan. My amazing husband Tommy has put up with me through it all and helped build MFC and I love that my entire family is apart of this dream. My mission now is to communicate that chiropractic care is for every member of your family. When you and your family come in for an adjustment, I will use the most gentle and effective technique for each member. Every adjustment is delivered with compassion and love with the intent of creating a well-adjusted community just as if you were part of my family.

Dr. Kerstin Halstead

Dr. Kerstin grew up in Michigan and completed her undergraduate studies at Michigan State University in Kinesiology. While in college, she struggled with anxiety – which had a direct effect on her ability to focus, study and sleep – leading to stress and other health issues. After struggling through multiple semesters, it was suggested by a mentor that she start seeing a local chiropractor. Within one month, her ability to focus vastly improved and her anxiety surrounding test taking was almost completely gone.

After learning about and experiencing the positive impact that chiropractic care can have on leading a healthy lifestyle, Dr. Kerstin decided she wanted to be able to empower others to take back control of their health. She then decided to pursue a chiropractic degree at Life University here in Georgia.  She trained extensively under Dr. Jamie Michael while in school, and officially became a part of the Michael Family Chiropractic team after graduating in 2017.

Dr. Kerstin has advanced training in pediatrics and pregnancy including the Webster technique, a technique specifically dedicated to pregnant women. She also practices extremity adjusting, such as on the arms and legs, and has completed post-graduate training to become advanced proficiency certified in Torque Release Technique. This specialized technique allows for a gentle amount of force and the spine to be in a neutral position.

Dr. Kerstin believes in the power of chiropractic and loves being a part of Michael Family Chiropractic. Her dedication to serving the families of Smyrna, GA and seeing them lead happy and healthy lives is inspiring. When you come into the office here at Michael Family, you’ll be treated just like family, and Dr. Kerstin will be leading the charge.

How Can You Help Me?

Our goal is to go over any health goals, health history and current problems you are experiencing all on your first visit with us. We determine what diagnostics need to be done to get to the root cause of your concerns, and this includes X-rays if needed. If we feel we cannot help you, we will do our best to refer you to someone who can and be upfront with you about that.


What Can I Expect On My First Visit?

Coming into our place, you’ll always feel welcomed, comfortable and part of our family. We are rooted in transparency and we’ll answer any questions you have. On this visit, we’ll do a full comprehensive exam which includes:
– Personal and Complimentary Doctor Consultation
– Digital Assessment of your Nervous System
– Digital X-rays (if necessary)

Do You Take Insurance?

We will verify your insurance and it is not required to receive care. We will do our best to maximize anyone’s insurance, however, we find that 99% of the time the cost of care at MFC, is less than most co-pays and deductibles with insurance.


How Much Does Chiropractic Care Cost?

We are upfront with all costs prior to your first exam, and taking care of your health isn’t as expensive as you may think. While you will receive the highest level of clinical and professional expertise, which includes state of the art technological equipment and techniques, we want to make care affordable for all families.


When Can I Get Adjusted?

After your first visit, we’ll have you come back in for a second visit to go over the results of your exam and explain exactly what’s going on inside your body. We will recommend a personalized care plan unique to your needs and goals and properly adjust you if you continue to move on with care.


How Long Will My Chiropractic Care Take To Fix The Problem?

Everybody is going to respond to care differently and our treatment plans will reflect those variables. After performing the necessary exam, we will create a tailored treatment plan for you. We will, however, explain clearly what your expectations are, as well as ours, so that we are on the same page and can reach your goals effectively.


“This is your health. Stop masking the symptoms and thinking they will just go away. It will just continue to degenerate. Let us help you really take control of your body.” – Dr. Jamie Michael, D.C.
