Patient Feedback
I've been to many clinics in the Atlanta area and Dr. Schenendorf's is by far the best I've encountered. I suffered chronic lower back pain and sciatica for years that impacted my ability to travel and work. Since starting treatment with Dr Schenendorf, the pain has subsided, allowing me to travel again pain free and to enjoy running and working out. His passion, professionalism and unique personality builds trust and confidence making you feel at ease during treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Schenendorf!

Rob Cuel Gwinnett Spine Specialists: Changing the way sciatica is treated by saving our patients time, money and frustration!

Gwinnett Spine Specialists specializes in the treatment of low back pain and more specifically sciatic pain.  We see more patients for low back pain and sciatica than any other condition.   In fact, we have over 60 years experience and see hundreds of patients a year for this condition.  

Our revolutionary system incorporates the best of medical, physical therapy, chiropractic, decompression and massage allowing for more comprehensive treatment options.

While many clinics will work collaboratively with these various doctors and therapists, we offer these services on site.   This comprehensive system is designed to utilize the latest diagnostic testing, ensure an accurate diagnosis and subsequent proper treatment which saves our patients time and money.  

The truth is, no one method is best and no one method is effective for every patient.  In fact, research has shown that incorporating more than one method of treatment is the most effective, fastest way to recovery.

Therefore, at GSS every method of treatment is available to you in one location.   Just as important,  any additional treatments and diagnostic testing are offered at no additional cost to the patient.  

Our goal it to provide the best of each discipline to quickly alleviate any pain or discomfort and rehabilitate the sciatic pain to prevent future complications.  Any necessary treatments, prescriptions, diagnostic testing as well as the more conservative chiropractic and physical therapy are done on location.  Of course, conservative treatment is our first priority.

In short, you receive the benefits of a more comprehensive approach without incurring the extra cost normally associated with such care.  

Whether you are interested in incorporating all of our services or you are interested in one facet of our care, GSS is the ideal place to treat your pain.  


1.  Physical Therapy:  PT can be prescribed to begin a program of exercises, stretching and strengthening.  Physical therapy has been found to be a very effective conservative treatment for sciatica.    Other associated treatments include:              

· Ultrasound
· Electrical muscle stimulation
· Cold Laser
· Hydro Beds
· Inter-segmental Traction Beds

2.  Chiropractic:  Chiropractors are experts of the joints that make up the spine.  Sciatica is often caused by pressure of the sciatic nerve as it exits these joints.  Chiropractic has proven very effective in treating such cases.  

3.  Medical:  Our medical doctor is available to oversee the patients care.  He will make recommendations on necessary diagnostic testing as well as treatment recommendations such as the need for physical therapy, prescriptions or injections.  However, the medical doctor will only provide prescriptions to current patients. 

4. Decompression Therapy:   IDD therapy is the latest in sciatica treatment.  It is a highly researched method for treating sciatic pain, specifically disc injuries.  It utilizes traction to rehabilitate the spine and take the pressure off the nerves exiting the low back.  In our office we have experienced a very high success rate with this treatment.  IDD has proven very effective in not only treating sciatic pain but various other spinal conditions as well.  To read more about decompression, please see the decompression page.

5.  Massage:   Massage helps facilitate the rehabilitative process serving as a catalyst for faster recovery.  Sciatica often has muscular factors which are treated effectively by massage therapy.  In addition it helps to avoid scar tissue to build up which can lead to more chronic conditions.  Our patients enjoy the benefit of insurance covered massage when used as an adjunct to care.
