Knee Pain...

  • "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. It makes sense to make the adjustments in a less radical fashion and keep the spine properly aligned and I have been very pleased with the results."
    John W.
  • "I cannot say enough about Cathy – when she started working on my deep muscle massage, she had a tough job. I know she worked out knots and relaxed tissues in my back and legs that felt like a washboard to me when I first started with her. She has worked all of the kinks out. Then I had damaged nerves in my elbow that affected my little finger and ring finger. I had no feeling in either finger, accompanied by lots of pain – they were very cold feeling and had an electrical shock feeling when touched."
    Alice Stephenson
  • "It began in 2008 with a little pinch feeling in my left knee and gradually moved to my right knee. My knees were very painful and the pain moved down my shin. It was hard to walk or stand. Dr. Garner and his staff have made my experience life changing. I tell everyone I know what a difference it has made doing small things like bending, standing for long periods of time, walking, etc. This is something I will continue to do for my overall health."
    Doris Watters
  • "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."
    Jan Pender
  • "For the last three of four years I had been experiencing knee pain and tingling in both legs at bedtime sometimes referred to as Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). Not wanting to become addicted to pain medication, my husband and I started looking for a chiropractor since I had experienced some relief after seeing chiropractors at home in West Virginia. We saw an ad in the newspaper promoting the Grand Strand chiropractor offering laser treatment. Since starting laser and chiropractic treatment care. I have improved and experience a good night's sleep most nights. The staff at Grand Strand is exceptional and caring with little waiting time."
    Jean Rhodes
  • "When I first came to Grand Strand Health & Wellness, I was hurting, walking with a cane, and within 3 weeks of Dr. Garner & staff, the cane is gone and I really can’t believe the improvement. The cold laser & Pro Adjuster and therapy have helped greatly. Wish I would have come sooner since I’ve been experiencing pain for years, I feel great! Actually, the best in 20 years! Thanks! Many Thanks!"
    Joe Sapone
  • "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."
    John Williams
  • "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."
    Linda Coyle
  • "My Experience with knee pain and chiropractic has been very remarkable. Chiropractic has kept me pain free and out of surgery as long as I maintain my treatments."
    Mary Allen

  • ""Awesome, Fantastic, Incredible!" That is what I think of cold laser therapy. Before my knee was in constant pain, now it feels so much better. The best decision I ever made was coming to see Dr. Chris and his chiropractic team (Cindy, Rachael, Michael and Lisa) What a difference they have made in my life!"

Back Pain...

  • "Before I started visiting Dr. Garner, I was struggling with lower back stiffness, upper back pain and knee pain. Since I have started my sessions with him, I can usually walk without my cane. Although there is still some stiffness in my back, it has been reduced. My left knee does not give me as much trouble as before. I think as I continue my therapies it will continue to improve. I also purchased insoles for my shoes. I thank God I made that choice, as I have seen great improvements. I have faith that attending therapy and with God’s help I will improve even more. Thank god for Dr. Garners’ ad in the newspaper."
    Brenda G.
  • "Thanks to Dr. Garner and the Pro Adjuster I am finally able to stand up straight without severe back pain for the first time in many years! After treatment with many neurosurgeons, several orthopedics surgeons, pain management, facet injections, epidural injections, and several years of physical therapy that never worked for me! I finally found a treatment that actually is helping with my severe, chronic back pain. Thank you Dr. Garner!"
    Antonio Sa
  • "During my eighth session at Grand Strand Health and Wellness, Dr. Garner performed a manual adjustment on my back. I stood up for the first time in twelve and a half years with neither a dull ache nor any shooting pains in my lower pack. I wept with joy. I have thanked God every day since for bringing me to Dr. Garner's chiropractic practice.
    Everyone at Grand Strand Health and Wellness is friendly, welcoming, personable, and helpful. Each procedure - therapy to massage - is explained thoroughly. Members of this staff make clients feel like they are partners in the quest for health, and they cheer every patient on to a return of full health. This office demonstrates professionalism at it's finest!"
    Elizabeth Sharrett
  • "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."
    Bill Bancalari
  • "After many years of suffering from back pain, I gradually was improving. I also added ice packs, pillows, and orthotics to my treatment. All have really helped to get me back to where I can live a more normal life.

    Dr. Chris and his staff are a real team that makes you feel welcome; and really seem to care about my health. I also like the medical messages that constantly roll across his TV monitors."
    Colin Peterson
  • "I have been seeing Dr. Garner since May now and I already feel like a new person. He took the time to listen to me and to develop a holistic program that worked all of the problem areas in order to help me be the person I wanted to be. Today I am still seeing Dr. Garner, my shoulders and posture are getting much better, my back is in much better shape and I find that I can once again do things around the house that use to cause such pain. No more discussions of shots and surgeries, just his great effort to help me get around better and to do the things I want to do. In addition to Dr. Garner’s great care, he also has a very knowledgeable and caring staff. I very much appreciate the excellent care I have received and look forward to my continued visits."
    Hazel Bordwine
  • "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."
    Joanne W
  • "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!"
    Joanne Knable
  • "I had bulging discs and terrible back pain. I had been treated by a chiropractor in Ohio. Nothing helped for very long. I also had my pelvic bone out of place, and neuropathy of my feet and legs. I didn’t know it was caused by my back. I was taking 3 Advil or 800mg Motrin a day. I felt I was just waiting to die. I had seen ads in the paper but they were all too expensive. I know God sent me to Dr. Garner. I can’t believe in such a short time I feel so much better. My back is okay. My feet now have feeling. They are even pink instead of a sickly white. I can’t say enough about Dr. Garner and his staff. I have a completely different outlook on life. I am so thankful I found them. I no longer take pain medication of any kind."
    Jean Stidham
  • "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!"
    Joan Sykes



Auto Injuries...

  • "I had nerve damage from a lower back injury (due to a car accident) in both of my feet. It was recommended that I try the foot treatment (cold laser therapy and rebuilder) to see if it would alleviate some of the pain, when I came to Grand Strand Health & Wellness.I am so impressed with the excellent results I am feeling. In 4 weeks, after ten treatments from Rachael, my feet are almost pain free, which is amazing since I’ve lived with the pain for over 20 years. I will be recommending this service to everyone seeking relief from joint pain.."
    Noreen G.
  • "I was involved in a car accident which left me, a previously healthy woman, experiencing bad headaches, weak arms and legs, a sharp pain in the neck and back, and stuttering badly all the time. I also lost my taste and could not feel my lips. Since getting my adjustments, I am not stuttering anymore, I’m getting my strength back in my arms and legs, I have my taste back, and I sleep all night."
    Annette P.



Neck Pain...

  • "My experience at GSHW has more than met my expectations. The staff is friendly, professional, and there is very little wait time. Dr Garner is not only a healer but also, a teacher. I like his workshops that provide information to help the patient continue with home care and make improvements on their own. He encourages good health habits and gives his patients information to improve their overall health. To me, that is the true definition of a health care provider."
    Diane W.
  • "Five weeks ago I could barely walk using a cane. My knees were extremely painful bringing me to tears after walking a few feet or standing for more than thirty seconds. Lower lumbar pain was so severe, that only lying down brought any relief. My first laser treatment and chiropractic adjustment brought relief and could not have been expected. These along with my assigned exercises have given me continuous and improving relief. For the first time in three years, I am able to walk and do household chores as well as yard work and bicycle riding with a smile. Addendum: I have never been treated by a more caring and enthusiastic group of professionals."
    Kate Buscher
  • "Since starting chiropractic care I have felt major relief from neck and shoulder pain. I have also had relief from really bad headaches; and hey, you wont find a better group of people or environment to be around!"
    Matthew Alford
  • "Before starting Chiropractic care I was having severe neck pain. Since I started my appointments the pain in my neck has been reduced. The service of the staff is great. I would recommend Dr. Garner to anyone who needs chiropractic care"
    Arthur Corneliusen
  • "Everyone was very nice and friendly. The facility was very clean and well organized. On my second visit my wife was also invited to come so that my treatment plan and x-rays could be viewed, by us, and explained so that we would know the extent of my condition. We were both overwhelmed at the findings that were revealed on the x-rays. We were even more overwhelmed to find that Dr. Garner's office would work out an affordable payment plan that would fit our slim budget. The following day I received my first treatment. I was shocked to find that I could actually move my neck rom side to side without pain, and I could also reach an additional 6 inches toward my toes. I have been getting more and more limber in my movements ever since.
    My only regret is that I had not found Dr. Garner 20 years earlier."
    George David Smith
  • "When I first started going to her I had much pain in my neck and my shoulders. I sit at a computer all day which causes stress in these areas. After her massage I go home completely relaxed and feel wonderful.

    I highly recommend a massage with Kathy. She is the most personable and knowledgeable of all the massage therapists I have been to and I have used four others before her. She is the best."
    Jeanette Chichester
  • "Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain and tingling from my neck radiating down my left arm. I also suffer from lower back pain. 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. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by continuing care. If somebody I knew hasn't tried it yet, I would recommend it because Dr. Chris and his staff are very professional and thorough in their approach to treatment."
    John Frangelli
  • "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."
    Kenny Crawford
  • "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!"
    Leveta Pierce
  • "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."
    Loetta Haigler
  • "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."
    Marlene Hehnke



TMJ...

  • "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."
    Bonnie B.



Headaches...

  • "Before I started massage care I was experiencing tension headaches and stiffness in my shoulders and neck. Since having regular care, I am experiencing the following positive changes: few headaches, if any; far less “knots” in my muscles.

    I absolutely recommend this practice. It helps in maintaining a well balanced body and benefiting my overall health. When your body is relaxed and working properly, everything else falls into place."
    Liz B.
  • "I was in agony with pain in my head, mainly behind my right ear. It became worse as time went on. After trying many avenues of tests and treatment with prescriptions, my primary doctor eventually referred me to a pain management doctor. I had two very expensive treatments that did nothing for the pain. A friend mentioned Dr. Garner and his method of treatment (Pro-Adjuster) and I went the day I couldn’t stand it anymore, which was approximately three months from the time the pain first began. I was a “walk-in” and Dr. Garner took me right away. Within a week, the pain started to subside! I couldn’t believe it! And within a month, the pain was 95% gone!"
    Elaine Quadrozzi
  • "Before I started massage care I was experiencing tension headaches and stiffness in my shoulders and neck. Since having regular care, I am experiencing the following positive changes: few headaches, if any; far less “knots” in my muscles.
    Kathy is very compassionate and skilled. Treating myself to a massage with her once a month is my little luxury. It is a very relaxing time; more than worth the price; a calm and soothing atmosphere."
    Elizabeth “Liz” Barber
  • "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."
    Gayle Bobino
  • "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"
    Shari Russell
  • "Before I started routine Chiropractic Care I was experiencing headaches, neck pain and lower back pain. I am beginning to feel better each day. I love coming in the mornings for my appointment it starts my day with a positive note from the staff and with the adjustment."
    Sandy Fillers
  • "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!"
    Peggy Goins

Shoulder Pain...

  • "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."
    Kory H.
  • "I was doing a little touch up cleaning in our home and without warning I had an excruciating pain in my shoulder. I told my husband I needed to see a doctor and he said you need a chiropractor. Being new to the area we had no idea where to find one. I truly believe it was by divine intervention we saw Dr. Garner’s chiropractic sign-pulled in- parked and the rest of the story is all well and good. After seeing Dr. Garner, I felt no more pain. I have continued to see Dr. Garner for routine chiropractic care because I want to stay fit and active, after all I'm only in my seventy's. If you have not tried chiropractic care I recommend you make an appointment with Dr. Garner today. He and his staff are very dedicated to their profession. They were very pleasant and so helpful from the beginning. Everything done by Dr. Garner and his staff was way above average."
    Adene Frizzell
  • "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."
    Robert Lewis
  • "After 3 weeks of adjustments and laser treatments, my pain in my shoulders has almost disappeared. I am sleeping better and able to do more!"
    Davina Cowdrick
  • "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."
    Doug Jennings
  • "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."
    Elfi Rottenbucher
  • "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."
    George Heger May
  • "I came to Dr. Garner’s office in March 2015 after reading an advertisement, because I have suffered from bad shoulder pain for over a year. I had over 20 physio visits and several chiropractic treatments in Canada with very little results. Dr. Garner and his staff at this point have treated me four times and I have gone from very little mobility to regular range with very little pain. I can’t believe it and I would recommend this office to anyone!"
    Hal Sealy

Low Back Pain...

    Charlie Jeter
  • "Several years ago, I was having sharp pain in my lower hip area. It was debilitating pain such that I could barely walk. A friend recommended Dr. Garner. After about a dozen visits and following the recommended stretches and icing, the pain was gone and I could walk comfortably. I was skeptical at first that the technology would work but it did. Dr. Chris is a true professional, very knowledgeable and a wonderful person. I'm back for my lower back after surgery and already having great results. I tell everyone I know to put their chiropractic needs in Dr. Garner’s hands. His staff is also awesome."
    Dan Evans
  • "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."
    Edward Kelly
  • "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."
    Frances F. Phillips
  • "Severe lower back pain. Also weakness in left leg. Pain in neck and between shoulders to the extent of could hardly walk dog without stopping about 50’ or so to bend over to relieve pressure. Now after Dr. Garners care, can walk several blocks and stand up straighter, go up and down stairs with more ease. Also able to do more housework and shopping. I had no idea that I would ever be able to resume so many daily activities."
    Fred Brown
  • "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.

Orthotics...

  • "Way back in December of 2007, I took a bad fall outside Waccamaw Community Hospital. As hard as it is to believe, I broke both of my arms. I was immobile for 6 weeks while it healed. The right one was back to normal at the end of 6 weeks. The left one never healed. I actually believed that I would be this way forever. Then “EUREKA!” Dr. Christopher D. Garner came into my life. I called the office and spoke to a very friendly lady. She made me an appointment, and I was greeted by a very welcoming employee, which is a good indication that the office is filled with happy personnel. I felt like I made the correct decision to go see him and his staff. Dr. Garner came into the room and was so kind, compassionate and knowledgeable; he put me completely at ease. But the best outcome of the month I have been going is how much better my frozen shoulder has become. I actually washed my hair using my left arm; I had not done that in almost 8 years!"

  • "After being a patient at Grand Strand Health and Wellness for about seven months, I was noticing good results with my knee and back pain, but had a feeling things could be even better. I read a brochure about Orthotics and decided to have my feet tested and then I ordered specially made orthotics for my various "fallen arches", etc. The result is wonderful. After wearing the inserts for about three days, I noticed increased pain relief in my knees as well as better posture as the inserts are helping my skeletal system to recover from knee misplacement. I recommend everyone with knee and/or hip pain to consider personally prescribed orthotics."

  • "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. On my first visit I was not sure what to expect, for this would be my first visit with a chiropractic Dr. That first visit was enough to make me return for more treatments. The staff was very informative and very pleasant. On that first visit they took at least an hour to go over what I could expect and covered what my insurance would cover and what my expense would be. This was very helpful in making my decision to return and to continue treatments.
    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."

  • "After 3 weeks of adjustments and laser treatments, my pain in my shoulders has almost disappeared. I am sleeping better and able to do more!"

  • "Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my shoulder going the length of my arm and into my fingertips. 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 came to Dr. Garner’s office in March 2015 after reading an advertisement, because I have suffered from bad shoulder pain for over a year. I had over 20 physio visits and several chiropractic treatments in Canada with very little results. Dr. Garner and his staff at this point have treated me four times and I have gone from very little mobility to regular range with very little pain. I can’t believe it and I would recommend this office to anyone!"

  • "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 laser treatment I was unable to bend my right arm and unable to lift anything without pain. Within one week of treatment I was able to bend the arm and the pain I felt was reduced by 75-80%! I was amazed at how fast I saw results in the laser treatments. After a month I was almost pain free. The process was pain free and the results are phenomenal! The process was explained to me in depth every step of the way. I would recommend laser to anyone experiencing any pain like I was. Other doctors I saw just wanted to give me pain medications and a shot but both were ineffective in removing the symptoms. Nothing worked until Dr. Garner suggested the laser treatments. Thanks to him I am in a much better state of health and mind."

  • "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!"

Neuropathy...

  • "I have been experiencing problems with my back, hip and foot for years. I even had two surgeries on my foot to relieve the pain that kept me from even walking very well. All of this though, had to be over-looked as I was also the care provider for my husband, whose health was rather bad for several years during this same period of time. I found that I had to take care of him and just work through my pain, even though I did visit other doctors, I still remained in pain and I could not find a doctor that would take time to research a holistic approach that would get me well again. I received shots that did more damage than good and spoke with a doctor that even suggested surgery. Unfortunately, but also fortunately, I could not take time away from my care giving duties for surgery or more doctor visits that brought no relief or very limited relief."

  • "I originally went to Dr Garner for neuropathy in my feet. The cold laser treatments have stopped the pain and burning that I was experiencing, especially at night. Because I can now get into a deep restorative sleep, my energy level has increased to where I no longer need a nap every day. Upon examination, Dr Garner also found I had a misalignment in my neck that was causing me to have migraines. With only six treatments to my neck and spine, I have had only two since I began. The results from both of these treatments have been remarkable to say the least. I can’t say enough about Dr. Garner and his staff. I fully intend to recommend them to everyone I know who needs help."

  • "Numbness, tingling and pain in my feet and legs had been interfering with my sleep. I saw the ad regarding the cold laser treatment for neuropathy and decided to give it a try. After a few visits with Rachael, the pain and numbness in my feet has practically disappeared. This has been worth it! The staff is very good!"

  • "I had nerve damage from a lower back injury (due to a car accident) in both of my feet. It was recommended that I try the foot treatment (cold laser therapy and rebuilder) to see if it would alleviate some of the pain, when I came to Grand Strand Health & Wellness. I am so impressed with the excellent results I am feeling. In 4 weeks, after ten treatments from Rachael, my feet are almost pain free, which is amazing since I’ve lived with the pain for over 20 years. I will be recommending this service to everyone seeking relief from joint pain."

  • "In April 2015, after 4 years of being diagnosed with neuropathy in my feet due to Lyme’s disease, I contacted Grand Strand Health and Wellness. Dr. Garner and his staff are like family. From the very beginning, you would walk in the office and everyone knows your name. Every visit there is concern for your pain level. There is so much knowledge to be gained by watching the videos and talking to this well- educated, friendly staff. I would and do recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness to everyone I can!!"

  • "I have been treated for the past 2 years for a condition in my feet called peripheral neuropathy. I cannot tell you how many miles I traveled from the North end to the South end of the Grand Strand seeing numerous specialists. I was experiencing constant sharp pain, numbness, tingling and swelling to the point my toes felt like they were encased. I wasn't able to work, I couldn't play golf or bowl, and I wasn't able to enjoy going grocery shopping! When I got to Dr. Garner I was at my wits end. After the first treatment the swelling in my feet and the pain was considerably reduced. Within 3 months, my problems had cleared up. Now that I have had cold laser therapy and the ProAdjuster back adjustments over the past three months, I can sit here and say that my feet are feeling absolutely marvelous. I would like to thank Dr. Garner and his wonderful staff and I would highly recommend this office for anyone because he is absolutely wonderful!"

  • "For the last 3 years, I have had severe diabetic neuropathy in my right leg. When I started the treatment I did not know what to expect, but after 3 treatments the result was better than I expected. The ladies in the office were very informative and let me know, through every step, what was going to happen. I had only been to a neurologist before and came here and they did not detect any abnormalities in my spine. It is well worth the cost to have this done and I liked all the treatments and I would recommend Dr. Garner and his staff. I would like to thank them all for their help."
