Dr. Jay Erickson
Dr. Jay Erickson was born and raised in Athens, Georgia, so when it came time for Jay and Brandi to decide where to start a Chiropractic Office; the Athens Community was first on their list. The creation of Erickson Chiropractic & Wellness has been a “dream come true” for both Jay and Brandi Erickson. Moving back to Jay’s hometown, where he and Brandi met, is the icing on the cake. Chiropractic continues to bless them in so many ways.
While growing up in Athens, Jay experienced the benefits of Chiropractic at an early age. After suffering a soccer injury, Jay began seeing a local Chiropractor. He loved the fact that he actually felt better after leaving his office. In 1996, he was involved in a motor cycle accident on Baxter Street. Dr. Jerry Chastain put him back together and got him walking again. This experience set his path for a Chiropractic career of his own.
After graduating from the University of Georgia, Dr. Erickson and his new wife moved to Spartanburg South Carolina to attend Sherman College of Chiropractic. While in school, Jay became passionate about the importance of nutrition along with proper alignment of the spine. Along with his Chiropractic studies he began taking Continued Education for nutrition and supplementation under Dr. Theodore Barody, a well respected Chiropractor and Nutritionist. In 2003, he earned his license in Holographic Health. After graduating Chiropractic College in 2004, he became an Associate Chiropractor at one of the busiest Chiropractic offices in Spartanburg. While working at Wise Chiropractic, he learned from two of the most respected Doctors in the business.
During this period, the Ericksons received a call from Dr. Jerry Chastain with the news that he would be retiring and wanted them to take over his practice. With their first child TJ on the way they knew it was time to move back close to family and friends, and begin digging roots for their family to grow.
Now with three children, TJ, Sam and Luke. Doctor Erickson is proud to be serving the Athens community and watching his boys thrive in Bulldog country
