Increase healing, reduce pain & create optimal health without drugs or surgery

What is Chiropractic Wellness?

Chiropractic treatment can be the key to detecting the cause of your problem. Chiropractic Wellness is a drugless, non-surgical method of promoting the healing process and maintaining optimal health and wellness; it has been in existence over 120 years. Chiropractic is the philosophy, science, and art that concerns itself with the relationship between the nervous system and function (health) of the body. It is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body!

The chiropractic approach to better health and mobility is to detect, reduce, and prevent nervous system dysfunction. If detected early enough, Chiropractic adjustments can often restore joint function, and release pressure on the nerve, and eliminate the Nerve Impingement Syndrome.

The Doctor’s job is to relieve as much Nerve Impingement Syndrome as possible. By allowing the nervous system to freely transport the nerve impulses throughout your body, you will begin to feel like new again; free to enjoy life to the fullest! Chiropractors work to achieve the highest level of function for your body, relieving the pain, eliminating the symptoms and correcting the cause of those symptoms. With the help of modern technology, the job of making you feel better just got easier.

A chiropractic wellness lifestyle may also incorporate exercise rehabilitation, physical therapy, low level & Class IV laser therapy, clinical nutrition, massage therapy or other forms of treatment. Grand Strand Health and Wellness emphasizes natural and PRO-ACTIVE health care, not just symptom based reactive or preventative care.

Can Chiropractic Care Help Me?

People seek Chiropractic Wellness for a variety of reasons. Some people are already healthy and want to make sure they STAY healthy. Some people want to help create an optimal healing environment in their bodies after a trauma or injury. Others need help with functional disorders- those caused by a disturbance in one or more systems of the body. Ask yourself two questions:

Do you deal with pain that keeps you from work, taking place in family activities or just making it hard to do the activities that you love, like golf, gardening, sports or maybe even just taking a scenic walk?

Do you find yourself feeling “under the weather” including a lack of energy that keeps you feeling lethargic and interferes with your drive to be active?

Then chiropractic care from Grand Strand Health & Wellness in Murrells Inlet is right for you!

What Our Patients Say About Our Chiropractic Care

  • Vicki's Review: Grand Strand Health and Wellness has a modern, up to date approach to meeting needs and concerns regarding chiropractic care. They strongly embraced a business like approach with long term appointments and direct withdrawal payment plans. Spouse per their policy must attend the first meeting. Different from the usual chiropractor you are one of many in an open setting, which at times can be loud and chaotic, having your adjustments completed. Staff are friendly and helpful. Dr. Crilley and partners have taken a new and modern approach to chiropractic care by introducing the Pro-Adjuster which I really have appreciated. Standard adjustments are available if one so desires. After two months of care, I have started to get some temporary relief from the ongoing chronic problems I have.

    I started chiropractic care at Dr Garner and immediately he pinpointed the problem. He ordered orthodics that were custom made for my feet and started laser treatments and the adjustor. The orthotics are wonderful. My legs and walk are more balanced and I no longer have a heel spur. The laser treatments brought instant relief to the pain in my knee and after a few visits my pain was at minimum. The adjustor is getting my knee back into joint, because I feel a big difference when I walk. I am no longer staggering as I get out of the car, and the pain is at minimum. Overall I feel so much better and I am so glad I found chiropractic care. I feel like I’m getting my life back again!

    Before starting chiropractic care I was experiencing lower back pain going down my legs. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing the following positive changes, my pain in the lower body has become almost non-existent. I can see chiropractic care helping maintain much better overall health in the future. I would recommend anyone who has some pains they shouldn’t have, to try chiropractic care.

    Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing lower back pain since getting injured several years ago in a lawn tractor accident. I was treated by an orthopedic doctor but never felt like I was right afterwards. Since starting regular chiropractic care I'm getting incrementally better each week. I am very close to being pain free now and can move easier. My back is more flexible and my balance has even improved. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by following through with maintenance care. If somebody I knew hasn't tried it yet, I would recommend it because Dr. Chris and his very professional practice and staff.

    Before I started Chiropractic Care, I had pain across my lower back, going down my right leg to the knee. Since then I find the pain has decreased and I can walk much better. My experience with the practice has met my expectations to the point as I continue Chiropractic Care. Service is prompt with short waiting times for treatment, very professional as well to make sure that I am ok with each procedure. Dr. Garner is way ahead of this calling and the costs are in line from what I hear from friends or less! I like to walk in and be met by smiles and hellos! I would recommend this practice to anyone. I know I can benefit from further care with Dr. Garner and his staff.

  • Before I started chiropractic care, I was experience sore neck and shoulders. After two weeks of care, my range of motion has increased and soreness reduced. I like the education on subluxation and stretching the most. Also, I like the roller table. I would recommend Dr. Garner because of the education he provides on how the spine, nerves, and brain impact our health. Most important is Jeanne will leave me alone about going to see Dr. Garner for all my aches and pains in old age.

    Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my shoulder going the length of my arm and into my finger tips. The pain had began to get worse. Since starting regular chiropractic care at Grand Strand Health and Wellness I have experienced relief since the first treatment. After the third treatment I had almost no pain at all. That makes me very happy with the entire treatment I receive. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by continuing with treatment. If somebody I knew hasn't tried it yet, I would recommend it because Dr. Garner is extremely efficient as well as his staff. Everyone is professional and very friendly.

    Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing lower neck, upper back and shoulder pain. I’ve always slept on my stomach, and slept restlessly.

    Since coming to Grand Strand Health and Wellness, Dr. Garner told me sleeping on my stomach was the worst way to sleep and I should sleep on my back or fetus position with a pillow between my knees. I can honestly say since coming here, I’ve never felt better and I am sleeping more soundly. My shoulder pain and neck pain have diminished.

  • I was experiencing shoulder pain, and regular chiropractic care has decreased the pain and improved my range of motion. It feels good that everyone knows my name and that my treatment plan was personalized to me. It is very affordable for the amount of services received. The Pro-Adjuster has benefits over manual adjustments in that I noticed less pain. I would refer anyone, and I trusted the practice enough for my mother to have an assessment. I have goals to remain healthy in body, mind and spirit and want to prevent rather than intervene. I recommend chiropractic before going to an M.D. and being handed drugs to put a band-aid on the problem rather than solve it.

    Before I started chiropractic care, I was hurting from a shoulder injury and was in pain. I saw the ad in the newspaper and called for an appointment. That is how I met Dr. Garner and his wonderful crew.After about six visits my arm is much better and I can almost use it normally.

    One big thing that impressed me about this office is that you do not sit for an hour to be helped. Usually no more than ten minutes.

    If I know of anyone, or hear of anyone, with aches and pains, I will definitely recommend Dr. Garner and his staff.

  • Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing… Severe neck pain, headaches, and spinal pain. I could not swallow food well, it would get stuck. I was in bad shape.

    Since starting regular chiropractic care I'm experiencing the following positive changes… No neck pain, headaches, spinal pain, hip pain. I can now swallow better, and my digestive system works better. I feel amazing.

    I’ve had vertigo for over a year and my symptoms of dizziness, headaches and fatigue were lasting longer and longer in duration. A friend recommended a chiropractor whom I thought was odd because I associated chiropractic care with back pain. On my 1st visit, Dr. Garner and his staff explained in detail how subluxation specifically in my neck can be producing my symptoms each episode. His staff is always friendly and willing to address questions and concern. I’ve been receiving treatment for almost 3 months and my symptoms are gone and I am able to do all my normal activities.

    Before I started chiropractic care, I was experiencing severe migraine headaches that kept me out of work at least 7 times a year up to 5 days at a time.

    Since starting this care, I have only had two headaches. The severity was so much less I did not miss any days from work. My experience here has been wonderful.

    The staff has been very pleasant and accommodating. The service is above and beyond. I would recommend this to others that may be suffering with the same symptoms.

    I see this program as a helpful benefit to my future by minimizing the tension and stress level of my daily activities!

  • Before I started Chiropractic care I was experiencing neck and shoulder pain as well as headaches which would develop into migraines. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing diminished neck and shoulder pain as well as NO headaches since after the first week of treatment and adjustment. This was and is truly a surprising to me. The services have been prompt and reliable. The staff is friendly and helpful. I appreciate that these are not any manual adjustments unless specifically prescribed; loving the treatment and the Pro- Adjuster. Grand Strand Health and Wellness will always come highly recommended from me.

    Before starting chiropractic care, I was having migraine headaches several times a week, numbness and loss of strength in my right hand, and severe TMJ.

    Dr. Garner and his staff are very knowledgeable about the type of individualized care they give. In addition to the personal touch that the Grand Strand Health and Wellness staff adds to each visit, the “No Wait” policy is awesome.

Since starting regular chiropractic care I'm experiencing the following positive changes of seeing results with less pain and stiffness in my neck area and lower back. The treatments plus the water bed, traction machine, and electric stimulation have all contributed to my improvement.

  • Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my neck. It constantly felt fatigue and tight in spite of a lot of stretching. Since starting regular chiropractic care I noticed the knots were no longer forming between my shoulder blades and spine. This positive change began to take place within one month. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by continuing chiropractic through maintenance care. If somebody I knew hasn't tried it yet, I would recommend it because everyone is very professional and nice. The pro-adjuster treatment seems to be helping my problems.

    I was told that I have 2 pinched nerves in my neck and needed surgery. I remember using chiropractic care many years ago. Since I have been having sessions with Dr. Garner, I am having much less numbness in my right arm. It is unbelievable the relief I am feeling. Everyone at the office is so pleasant and welcoming. There is always a great smile and it is almost like a family. They are very prompt with your appointments. This is the best thing that I have ever done for myself. The messages are wonderful. Such a treat. I highly recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness. There is none better. I tried another but came back to the BEST!

    When I went to see Dr. Garner, I was having severe pain in my neck, pain has decreased to a management level, and not constant pain like previous. Dr Garner and staff have been very professional, very prompt with appointment times. This has been my first experience with chiropractic care and I have been very pleased with my progress. I would recommend Dr. Garner to anyone is having pain or discomfort in neck, back or shoulders.

    Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing chronic back and hip pain that caused me to have to use a cane and walk bent forward. I suffered for years. I was sent to doctors in Pain Management, Neurology, and Orthopedics. Nothing seemed to help for very long. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by continuing to maintenance care. If somebody I knew hasn't tried it yet, I would recommend it because I only have praise for Dr. Chris and his staff; they are very professional, friendly and always ready to help. It is the first time I have had a Doctor to give me an emergency number that is answered at all times.

    Before I started I was experiencing a great amount of pain in my back. It hurt to walk, to vacuum, to stand and cook or wash dishes. I could not enjoy walking. I was surprised to see what my spine really looked like. Since starting regular chiropractic care I'm experiencing less pain, less soreness and easier bending. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by allowing me to walk more, do more exercise and maybe lose weight and use less medicine. If somebody I knew hasn't tried it yet, I would recommend it because life is more enjoyable with less pain and being able to travel some and have a more active life. I would like to thank my sister Jewel Peppers for her referral and encouragement and all the girls that worked with me and especially Dr. Chris for his patience.

  • Before chiropractic care, I was experiencing burning pain between my shoulder blades, under my breastbone, and around my back for six months. Since beginning care, my back does not bother me as much and it makes me so happy I want to do the happy dance! My experience with Grand Strand Health and Wellness has definitely exceeded my expectations. The service is always prompt and reliable. Dr. Chris and staff are wonderful! I love the massage bed and I do plan to continue my treatment with follow up visits because it continues to help and it feels great!

    Before Starting chiropractic care, I had suffered from back and knee pain. I would feel tired and worn out from working all day (8 hours) until my husband found this advertisement in the paper. So I gave it a try and I’m not sorry that I went. Dr. Chris has helped me a lot. Now I have little or no pain in my knees with very little pain in my back. I will continue to go and get the maintenance I need to be pain free. Thanks Dr. Chris and Staff!

    I went to Dr. Gardner after reading an advertisement in the newspaper offering a complete evaluation of overall and specific health problems where chiropractic care could correct the problems or offer pain relief without the use of medications. I have been a patient of chiropractors for many years and firmly believe in the services and strategies that are used for these purposes and overall general health. The cold laser treatment, electrical stimulation and the adjustments to my foot and knees by Dr. Garner have brought tremendous relief from the pain. I am also a big fan of the Pro-Adjuster.

  • Before I started chiropractic care both of my knees were killing me and I was experiencing a lot of pain. My left knee was worse than my right one. I could not walk or sleep because my knees would continuously hurt and that has been going on for two years! One day I saw an ad in the paper for chiropractic care and cold laser treatment. Dr. Garner uses the Pro-Adjuster to work on my back while Cindy uses the cold laser therapy to work on my knees. The first time I had the treatment I felt a huge difference.

    Before I started chiropractic care the level of pain I was experiencing was so intense it was hard to focus on any of the activities I enjoy. In a short period of time my pain was fifty percent improved. Since receiving cold laser therapy on my right knee the pain has almost gone away. It does not hurt to walk on it and it is bone on bone. If this continues I won’t need a knee replacement. I have had one on my left knee and treatment on it has eliminated any pain on it. I continue to improve each week. Chiropractic care has done what my regular doctor could not do. I have learned a lot about why and how chiropractic care works. I would recommend it to anyone! Dr. Garner and his staff are very knowledgeable and caring.
