Dr. Lesa & Dr. David Amato

Several years ago, having suffered chronic hip pain, I decided to seek chiropractic care.

I was skeptical at first, because the treatment seemed to focus more on my neck, however the results came fast, and I wanted to learn more. I changed my major to biology, and never looked back from my path to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.

In 1995, upon graduating from Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport Iowa, I returned to my home state for an internship position in Petaluma California. Several months later, I joined Dr. David in Augusta Georgia for a second internship, in addition to providing coverage for a practice in Aiken South Carolina.

Opening Amato Chiropractic Wellness Center

In 1996 Dr. David and I married, and opened Amato Chiropractic Wellness Center in Kingsland, GA. We have an integrated approach to spinal health care, and we have recently expanded our clinical Nutrition program, and have added a Nutritionist to our staff.  We utilize Standard Process and Mediherb products to help support the patient and their condition naturally, without harmful side effects. Most patients come for pain relief, and end up learning not only how to partner in their healing process, but also how to lead a healthier life that will lend itself to preventing future health problems.

We are grateful to work with such a caring and conscientious staff, and feel thankful to care for, and be a part of this tight knit community.

In addition to her chiropractic doctorate, Dr. Lesa holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, is licensed by the state of Georgia, the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and is a Certified Pilates Rehabilitation Instructor.


David Amato, D.C.

I have continually been inspired by chiropractic throughout my life. I was adjusted at birth and grew up with chiropractic care as a normal part of a healthy lifestyle. Recovering from a sports injury in high school with the help of my father’s chiropractic treatments taught me that treating the cause of my pain with natural chiropractic care, instead of masking the symptoms with pain killing drugs, was the focus of chiropractic. I learned that chiropractic is the largest all natural healing profession in the world and decided that I wanted to devote my life to helping others heal naturally, just like my father had helped thousands of patients in his 40 years as a practicing chiropractor.

Becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic

Upon completing my undergraduate studies at the University of Cincinnati, I enrolled at Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa, like my father and brothers before me. While attending “Palmer”, I was the president of the Atlas Orthogonal Club where I would help coordinate advanced seminars with practicing doctors from Atlanta helping to teach the Atlas Technique to other students. I was in a band formed with three other chiropractic students at Palmer College. We would perform at the student union and at various venues in the quad city area during our time in Davenport, Iowa.

Graduating in 1995, I moved to Augusta, Ga with Dr. Lesa, where I performed an internship with the Boutwell Chiropractic Group. On the weekends Dr. Lesa and I would explore the East Coast from Myrtle Beach to Jacksonville which is when we discovered Camden County. What won us over the most was the friendliness of the local residents and the natural beauty of the area. We opened our practice in Kingsland in 1996 and have been in the same location ever since. My hobbies include music, outdoor recreation, exercise, and cooking.

In addition to his chiropractic doctorate, Dr. David studied pre-med at University of Cincinnati, is licensed by the state of Georgia, and the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
