Hello, my name is Dr. Jon Holt and I am excited to be joining the TEAM at Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I am originally from Charlotte, NC and did my undergraduate studies at East Carolina University earning a B.S. in Economics.
I first visited a Chiropractor in undergraduate school for an injury I received playing golf, I was amazed at how fast I was pain free and back to playing golf again. Once I graduated, I began selling medical equipment and through that experience working with Medical Doctors, I knew then there had to be a better way to treat patients. I remembered my Chiropractic experience and matriculated to Life University in Atlanta, GA, the largest Chiropractic College in the world, for my Chiropractic studies.
Upon graduation in 2005 I moved to Myrtle Beach, SC to start my own Chiropractic Clinic. I have been practicing in Myrtle Beach for the last 18 years. I have worked with a wide range of patients both in condition and age. I hold several post graduate National Certifications such as Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP), Professional Sports Care Certified (PSC) for Management of Golf Injuries, Chiropractic Management of Golf Injuries Certified and Nationally Certified Activator Technique. My PSC training certifies me to work on all the Professional Golf Tours. With Special training in Extremities and Golf course injuries, I have also worked with a wide range of sports injuries. I was an Anatomy, Biomechanics & Exercise Instructor for Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach for 13Yrs. Additionally, I am a Sports Medical Expert for CSI & Bones Television Series. I am proud to serve as Lead Doctor for Palmetto State Roller Girls (Roller Derby Team). Some of my past activities include:
- Instructor Eastern Carolina School of Bartending 2yrs
