Dr.  Santjer uses a "whole person approach". This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, he is able to help you  accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.

Dr. Santjer is licensed by the Virginia Board of Health Professions and also licensed in the State of N.Y.  He is a member of the American Chiropractic Association and the Virginia Chiropractic Association.

It is always good to get a second opinion. Book with him now for a new perspective on an old nagging pain or condition. Dr. Ellul will be joining us on 1/22/24, and is currently taking appointments.

Dr. Kenneth Ellul was born and raised in the outskirts of Chicago Illinois.

  • ""I first came to Atlantic Chiropractic 5 years ago with a pinched nerve in my neck. I was in so much pain, I could not even move my head. Dr. Eric diagnosed the problem almost immediately and confirmed it with the EMG. He set up a treatment plan and told me I probably would not feel significant relief for a good two weeks. I appreciated his thoroughness, expertise, and honesty. As it turned out, I was actually pain free in one week! I always refer my friends to Dr. Eric/Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation for the most trusted effective chiropractic care.""
