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. She did a procedure called, touch for health, from a new course that she was taking, and she asked if she could try it. My response was, Go For It, It Can’t Hurt! I could tell right away that something was happening. I could feel warmth in my ring finger (that was cold before, and felt like rubber). Long story short, she got that finger back 100%, not so on the little finger – got that one back to where it stopped the pain. Then Dr. Garner suggested the cold laser treatment – 12 sessions – that has worked to 80%. By this, I can tell you, I now have feeling in my little finger – it is no longer ice cold, or feels like rubber. No Pain, No electrical shock. It is not normal – but getting there! The bottom line is all this kept me from having surgery, which the ortho doctor highly suggested with a 3 month recovery time. I chose a different path first and it worked!! Dr Garner, Cathy and his group are wonderful!!

We recently moved here and I needed a chiropractor. After moving everything from NY to SC my neck, upper back and lower back were very painful all of the time, I was not sleeping well and having headaches that lasted days. I was very happy to see the post on Facebook for Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I started on the 13th of October and within a week I was feeling better with each treatment. I can honestly say that my back and neck feel great most of the time including no headaches. The staff is very professional and helpful. Dr. Crilley truly cares for helping you get well. Trina and Cassidy are amazing and excellent at their jobs. I’ve been able to ask them questions and if they don’t know the answer they finf it for me. The care I have received from them is beyond anything I could have expected.

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!
Byron Ballard July 2018
I came to Grand Strand Health and Wellness with excruciating lower back pain and had to have assistance with walking, standing, and sitting. The professionalism and knowledge off the entire staff made me feel right at home. Since starting treatment I have experienced a 100% relief from lower back pain, and I can now do activities I haven’t been able to do in years! My thanks to Dr. Crilley and the entire staff for everything you continue to do for my health sake.
Brenda Kornfield October 2021
My journey with chiropractic care began 35 years ago after the birth of my 11 lb baby boy was born. I experienced problems with my hips and lower back. Manual adjustments were very difficult, but I continued because the adjustments worked. I found a practice that offered the Pro-Adjuster and I fell in love with it. When we went to Myrtle Beach I started a search for the Pro-Adjuster. I found Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I have had a very positive experience with Dr. Garner and his group. I like that they take x-rays, offer a program, including exercises to do at home, along with continued check-ups throughout my program. I would absolutely recommend the practice!
Michele Johnson April 2016
Pain? All over, all the time. Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain for so long and it was so pervasive and chronic that I could not pinpoint what specifically was hurting or when the pain began. I was perpetually exhausted but struggled to get to sleep at night. Mornings were a battle with the snooze alarm because my nights were so restless. Instead of waking rested and refreshed, I felt as if I had been run over by a Mack truck. Daily, I was foggy headed and lethargic. The numbness in my hands and arms was virtually debilitating. Sitting for very long made my back and neck hurt, but standing for very long made my legs and back hurt. I was utterly miserable. My chronic pain quelled any possible motivation for activity and my quality of life was minimal and continued to diminish.
I did not have previous chiropractic experience so I was not really sure what I should expect. I did have high hopes that chiropractic treatment might finally be the answer to my health issues and I have not been disappointed. Now that I have been receiving regular chiropractic care from Dr. Garner, my quality of life has greatly improved. I am no longer experiencing chronic pain. I find I am able to fall asleep easily and I often wake before my alarm goes off. I now wake feeling rested and refreshed enough to exercise daily before work. The painful numbness in my hands and arms has just about disappeared and I feel that I have more clarity of thought. I also have a great deal more energy which has allowed me to be more active. My increased activity has resulted in weight loss and muscle tone. I plan to continue with wellness visits once my initial treatment plan is finished because I never want to be in the poor she I was in before starting chiropractic care. There are a few things I have experienced at Dr. Garner’s office that I appreciate and cause me to highly recommend this practice for others. First and foremost is the respect for my appointment time. If I have been scheduled at 4:30, I am seen by 4:30. This office is very efficient and I have never been left sitting past my appointment time. Dr. Garner and his office staff are welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable about chiropractic care and individual patients and their needs. I am greeted by name when I walk in the door and Dr. Garner and the staff members remember my preferences and what I am being treated for. I also appreciate all the supplemental information and focus on wellness and living a healthier lifestyle that is pervasive throughout the office. This chiropractic treatment is the single best investment I have ever made for my health and the benefits have greatly improved the quality of my life.
Barbara Ward August 2017
After seeing Dr. Garner’s add on Facebook, thought I give it a try. So I called, and here I am. I have lower back pain, and pain in both knees, and legs. I has been going to pain management doctors for years, but it didn’t seem to help. Also, I was very interested in the cold laser treatment. I can tell you, the relief that I have received from the treatments is unbelievable. It has definitely exceeded my expectations. The service at his practice is so very outstanding, everyone treats you like you are part of the family, and that is very unusual. I am definitely getting what I paid for, plus much much more. You can’t put a price on your health, because without your health, you have nothing. Believe me I have suffered for years. I have not found one thing that I dislike about this practice. I do keep wishing that this office was closer, because I live in Little River. The drive to Murrells Inlet is quite a drive. If anyone has any health problems, please go see Dr. Garner, you will not be sorry. Just give it a try. They are terrific. I will continue his care as long as I am able to drive to Murrells Inlet. Thank you, Dr. Garner and staff, you are all super. And thanks for making me feel better!!!
Barbara Welch February 2020
I had been having increasing discomfort/pain in my thoracic and lumbar areas for a month. It was affecting my activities of daily living to the point where I was giving up several activities. Previous to this, about 5 years ago, had a similar problem after I had moved and pulled some muscles during my lifting and unpacking. At that time, I sought help from a chiropractor who used activator treatments which helped.
Desiring to find a chiropractor who used activator treatments, my family physician suggested I contact Grand Strand Health and Wellness. When I did, I was pleasantly surprised by the thoroughness of my initial appointment. I had a thorough work up with a history, x-rays, and consult prior to any treatment. My explanation consultation was complete with the diagnosis of my problem and then plan for my treatment needs. The pro-adjuster would be used, similar to what I’d had previously, called an activator, along with other types of treatment.
I have had several treatment sessions, all of which have helped me greatly. I know I have more treatments to complete my plan of action, but already my activities of daily living are not cumbersome and I have relief the majority of my day. I can accomplish things without being hindered with pain. What a change in my life!
I especially like the sign in process whereby I enter my status at the time of my appointment. This info goes directly to the Dr. who retrieves it before even seeing you for your appointment so he doesn’t waste time asking again what area(s) are causing difficulty.
My expectations have been exceeded. My previous experience with a chiropractor were good with the use of the activator, but he did not give me a thorough treatment, he only used the activator. No X-rays were taken, just use of an activator. Grand Strand is most professional and thorough in their treatments. It is a very efficiently managed office with the staff being “on time” for my appointments, cleanliness of the facility and they treat me with a personal acknowledgement of me as a person. The staff uses my name to address me, are always pleasant, take their time doing my treatment, are competent, efficient and effective. The flow of the activity in this office is smooth and relaxing even though they are a busy practice. I enjoy coming for my treatments.
One of the extra special things about Grand Strand Health & Wellness is their TRIVIA media that provides education during my “wait” times to be called for treatment. I always pick up a health tip at each appointment from this media. It is interesting to look at the ceiling TV messages too during my treatments when the ceiling is my main focal point.
I have recommended this practice to two people already and know that I will be continuing to do so in the future because the relief I am feeling already has been well worth the cost. I’m getting my money’s worth!
During the course of my treatment, I was repeatedly impressed with Dr. Salami’s sincere concern about my status of how I was progressing and if I had any new problems that he should address in my treatment. He always has good advice
I also know that I will need to continue follow up with maintenance appointments so that I will not have a return of discomfort/pain.
Bill Bancalari December 10, 2012
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. My wife was going to Dr. Chris for neck and shoulder pain and I went with her to a presentation on the benefits of Chiropractic care. I decided to give it a try. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing the following positive changes of being back on the golf course just after a few weeks. I can get out of bed without help, don’t have to use a cane and my pain is starting to diminish. I am not completely pain free but I am well on the way enjoying life again and my pain levels have decreased from a 10/10 to now only 1/10 in four short weeks. 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 Parker May 2021
Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing back and neck pain. Since receiving chiropractic care I can now turn my head to both sides, and the pain has decreased. I have been to the spin institute in Charleston and had multiple steroid shots in my back, which got very little results.
I am very surprised and pleased at the results I have gotten thus far in my treatment. I greatly appreciate the help and kindness I have received there. I can see chiropractic care benefiting my overall health by increasing my mobility. I have already started referring friends to this chiropractic care center.
Brenda Graham March 2015
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 Morris September 14, 2015
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!
Carol Roscher January 2022
I came to Grand Strand Health and Wellness in December of 2020 suffering with chronic pain in my lower back. I was greeted at the front desk with smiles and a very welcoming staff. Dr. Garner evaluated my situation and designed a therapy treatment for me. After discussing cost that I find very reasonable; especially for the results that I am witnessing. We began sessions, three times per week at first. Dr. Forrest uses the
ProAdjustor to adjust my back. Trina treats my back with the laser and the decompression table. In one month my back is feeling better than it has in years! I would highly recommend this practice! Everyone is very knowledgeable about their tasks and there is always a “good vibe” in the office … and great music!
Charlie Jeter April 2016
I had been experiencing lower back pain, unable to play golf at all. A friend recommended Dr. Garner at Grand Strand Health and Wellness, after just 7 or 8 treatments, I was able to get back on the golf course and I am playing five days a week. I highly recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness. Dr. Garner and all the staff are very professional and friendly.
Chris Williams January 2019
My back problems started the weekend of Thanksgiving. My last visit to a chiropractic was four years ago, my how times have changed. The emphasis today is not only as much immediate relief of pain as possible, but also long-term care and, just as important, education about your specific problems. Also, long term care designed specifically for each patient. Grand Strand Health and Wellness has the absolute latest equipment and technology necessary to make each visit as effective as possible, but that’s not the total story. The strongest attribute is it’s people. The doctor, therapists, and the front desk staff are all there for one reason, to make each visit as personal and pleasant as possible. I would highly recommend Grand Strand Health & Wellness to anyone who is having back, neck or any problems with joints. I would also recommend these people for health and wellness maintenance.
Christine Atchinson July 2017
I sought out chiropractic care when the pain and numbness in my back and legs started to interfere with my daily life. I was most impressed with the office and staff. Not only are they friendly but everyone is very knowledgeable. I am about six weeks into my treatment and I am feeling better. My range of motion has improved dramatically. I love the Pro Adjuster. I was always hesitant at other practices because I would tense up with manual adjustments. The Pro Adjuster is a piece of cake and makes me feel great. I never followed through with long term treatment before because I didn’t feel like it worked but I will continue with this team! Not only does my back and legs feel better, my mood has improved.
Cinda Woodberry April 2016
Before I started chiropractic care I was in so much pain I could not stand long enough to wash dishes, grocery shop or teach my secondary school class. Since starting regular chiropractic care I can do about all of the things that I was not able to do before. My quality of life has really increased without dealing with the pain. I never expected to feel this good again without surgery on my back. I am so thankful for Dr. Garner and his wonderful staff really has given me back my life, at my age, some pain is expected, but not me! I would definitely recommend anyone with the slightest back pain to come see my chiropractic team!
Cindy Sirois May 2021
I began my journey of better health and wellness due to chronic back pain from an injury 14 years ago. Not only did my back pain improve it set me in motion to a healthier lifestyle. It gave me hope which quite honestly I don’t have anymore. I had been to an orthopedic neurologist and medical doctors and they just prescribed medications never getting to the route of the problem. Because of Dr. Luis and the entire staff my hope has been restored. I’m faithfully doing my stretches, eating better (losing weight) and taking additional supplements all to increase my quality of life. Thank you GSHW for making all the difference in my life with your care, kindness, and expertise.
Colin Peterson April 2014
I first stumbled upon Dr. Chris at harbor walk, in Georgetown (annual festival). My daughter had seen a chiropractor for years and had been trying to get me to see one, especially one who uses the pro adjuster. I was really struggling at standing for any long periods of time. It was hard for me to stand during the honor guard of the knights of Columbus.
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.
Colleen Padula November 2017
I was experiencing mid-lower back pain. Since starting regular chiropractic visits my pain has lessened, and I can actually bend!! The service is so reliable and prompt. Everyone here is so sweet! This practice exceeded my expectations.
My overall health is improving as now I can move better and can already feel the strength returning and I still have ½ my therapy left. I would recommend Chiropractic care to anyone, because it’s better than medication and WORKS!
Dorothy O’Brien September 2018
I would like to tell of my experience since beginning my treatments at Grand Strand Health and Wellness. My back was in pretty bad shape due to my age, deterioration of my discs, as well as a few back surgeries. I never knew much about laser treatments, but opted to try them. I was pleasantly surprised to discover how they have helped me, as well as the expertise of Dr. Crilley. I had a problem with one of my feet for 3-4 yrs, but he also worked a miracle on my foot (with God’s help of course), and it is now pain free. I can honestly say that each time I walk out of their office, I am pain-free. They are also doing a great job of relieving my sciatica pain! This chiropractic office is the happiest medical office I’ve seen. Dr. Garner and Dr. Crilley and the whole staff are the friendliest, happiest people you would want to meet. I highly recommend them! Why not give them a try–you won’t be disappointed!!!
David Joye February 2015
Before I started chiropractic care, I was experiencing extreme pain over my left kidney. It was so extreme and almost paralyzing. Since I started chiropractic care regularly, I have experienced a gradual lessening of the pain. It has exceeded my expectations, because I no longer use my walker or cane.
I got prompt and also very attentive service. Everyone was so nice!
I got what I paid for and more. I’m not experiencing pain now. I would recommend Dr. Garner to anyone that I think he could help.
Dorothy Swabb July 2017
Pain robs us of so much… mobility, sleep, and peace of mind. Easing pain without prescription drugs and/or injections is a blessing. Thank you Dr. Garner for giving me my smile back.
Earl Jones November 2017
Since I started chiropractic care I feel some change in pain, but when I go to work and have a rough day, I’m still having pain. I feel that the staff is doing what they can. All my treatments are great I’m just not feeling as I thought.
Edward Kelly January 29, 2013
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.
Ed Sharrett August 2015
I joined the military in July 1968 and worked as an aircraft mechanic for 4.5 years and started having problems then. In 1972 I changed careers and went into the munitions field and lifting rockets, munition cans and other heavy items caused more back problems. When I went to the base hospitals, I was always given medicine to suppress the pain, never really treating the problem. I would be pot on light duty for a week or so and back to work, never cured.
Why did I choose Grand Strand Health and Wellness you ask? My wife was going and said I should go. I learned 43 years ago to say “yes dear”, if you know what I mean. She persuaded me to go and try it after her first visit. You know men don’t go to doctors, but she said it might help. I was weary of any successes due to every doctor I’ve been to just prescribing drugs. The last one I went to had an MRI done on me and when I went to get the results they hadn’t gotten them yet, after I took off work for three hours for the appointment. They gave me oxycodone for the pain, but after taking two of those I never took another one due to the side effects. The day after my appointment the doctor’s office was raided by the FBI and local law enforcement for over prescribing oxycodone. I never did get the results of the MRI and have never seen anyone else for the problem.
Dr. Garner and his staff have been great, welcomed me in, explained what they were going to do and what results I should see. Friendly people automatically make you feel better and the whole staff conveys that at every one of my visits.
Two weeks ago my wife went for her normal visit and she told me that for the first time in almost 13 years her sciatic nerve problem was gone. This was both a relief for her and me because we have both dealt with the problem, if you know what I mean.
My pain level has diminished every time Dr. Garner has adjusted my back. He put me on the adjustment table and made adjustments and it was like turning off the pain switch. Along with the handout for stretching my pain has been greatly reduced. The one machine that massages your legs was the only apparatus to cause any discomfort. It compressed on my knee too tightly and I didn’t know how to control it. I haven’t used it since, but with more training, I will.
I would recommend GSHW and Dr. Garner to other people and tell them of both my experience and my wife’s.
Elena Fear October 2021
When I first started, my mobility was limited in regards to my back and neck. Within the first week of being adjusted and utilizing the Decompression machine, the difference in pain was night and day. My daily life has transformed for the better, with very little to no pain for my back. I am very glad that I took the step to give going to a chiropractor a chance. I truly appreciate all the friendly and helpful staff. They make you feel comfortable right from the start.
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. I wish I would had known about the help I got and I would have done this years ago. I always was taken in on time with minimal waiting and treated very courteous by all staff members. With regular Dr.’s, I experienced long waits and never knew how long or when I would get out of their office. I know I got better faster and with more relief than I expected from going. For years I had been to expensive back Dr.’s with co-pay I could not afford. I liked the friendly respect, profound treatment, and lower cost. I would advise all my friends and others to try Dr. Garner for complete relief undergoing surgeries with long recovery time and pay. I can now see that going to Dr. Garner periodically as a maintenance or “tune up”, which greatly benefited me and my quality of life.
Gerald (Jerry) Sekula October 2020
I was a commercial construction carpenter for 50 years in Southern Florida, raising a family, wife, mother-in-law and four boys. That caused me to not take care of my body. Now living in South Carolina, I started having issues with my hip so I went to Grand Strand Health and Wellness facility with Dr. Garner who x-rayed my neck, hip, and backbones. I went back a few days later to see the x-ray results and was shown all the areas that needed attention. I signed up for one of the plans, attending adjustments three days a week. To my surprise, all treatments are directed by the doctor, who is on-site giving treatments and directing his technicians to perform other therapies. The devices are high-tech computerized treatments. I am half-way through my program and my recovery is beyond what I expected. The team is highly qualified and caring people. I look forward going to my appointments.
Gary Mission January 2022
I came to Grand Strand Health and Wellness after seeing their posts on Facebook about their services. I have been experiencing lower back pain for some time. Physical therapy was only providing me with temporary relief so I decided to contact their office. I came in for an initial consultation and x-rays and determined that I had couple nerves being pinched by my spine. After only a couple visits I noticed considerable relief. I could stand and sit for much longer periods than before I started. So far Grand Strand Health and Wellness is following through with what they promised relief from the pain. I had lived on Ibuprofen and since I started 4 weeks ago I haven’t had to take a single pill. Everyone at the office is so friendly, helpful and takes the time to answer any questions I have. I have the flexibility to schedule visits on my schedule and not always theirs. They are on time and if my treatments are to take 45 minutes I am in and out in 45 minutes. I know that there is no quick fix when it comes to the back. Back issues have run in my family and I’ve seen the surgical options. So far everything I’ve been told about the treatment and relief, they have followed through with. I would certainly recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness to anyone with back issue.
Gene Cox 2018
Before starting chiropractic, I suffered with back pain and found it difficult to get around. Just standing up caused considerable pain. The pain was constant and would constantly wake me from sleep and prevent me from having a normal life. In the past 3 years I have also put on over 30 pounds from being forced into a sedentary life. Since starting regular chiropractic care the pain is gone and my range of motion has increased significantly. I can get out of bed without suffering and stand up from being seated without supporting myself with the arms of the chair. Best part is not experiencing the pain involved with simply moving. The past week I have lost 4 pounds which I contribute to the fact that I am already being more active, taking walks, going to the pool, and just having the ability to do life. Looking forward to increasing my activity even more and getting the weight back under control. I was hesitant in getting chiropractic as I did not understand it and was afraid it would be a waste of time and money and even potentially harmful. The pain finally forced me to either look at getting invasive surgery or non-invasive alternative treatment. I decided to give chiropractic’s a try and am glad I did. My expectations were completely surpassed. Not only did I achieve results, but it happened rather quickly, and the experience was on enjoyable. On a scale of 0-10 my pain level was an 8 when I started. Now I am at a 0 which is simply amazing to me. My friends and family have seen the difference and are glad to have the old me back. Dr. Crilley and his staff were so welcoming and friendly right from the start. Everyone was concerned with my welfare and always have taken the time to ensure I was being treated not only professionally but as if I were family. They know what they are doing and do it with kindness and compassion. I highly recommend this practice to handle all your chiropractic needs and know I will continue to enjoy coming here as part of my regular health service.
Hazel Bordwine June 2015
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. After my husband passed away last December, I realized just how badly I felt and not wanting to go back to any of the previous doctors, I saw an advertisement for Dr. Garner. I left the information on my dining room table until one day I decided to make the call. And what a great call it turned out to be. 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.
Jack Van Housen August 2017
Before I came to Dr. Garner and Dr. Crilley I was having severe back pain. My wife had to dress me, and I started using a cane to walk. I had great difficulty even getting in and out of the car. Since my wife has had positive results with Dr. Garner, I expected the same for me. They pulled out all of the tools on hand. They used the pro-adjuster, manual table, roller table, electromagnetic therapy, cold laser, and ultrasound. Finally, on the seventh visit I agreed to massage also. On that day I walked out without my cane, and after all treatments and massage, by Barron, I handed the cane to my wife. I can resume all of my daily activities! I told others that it is like God performed a miracle, like in the Bible. I referred several others who have back pain to this office, and will continue to do so. Thanks to the whole team!
Jean Stidham February 2015
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.
Joan Eroh January 2021
The same day I became a patient at Grand Strand Health and Wellness, I started my therapy. At this time, I had suffered with the pain for at least 2 straight months. The simplest of tasks gave me pain. I could not bend to put on my socks and shoes without yelping (ouch!!)
Dr. Crilley does adjustments each visit along with relieving laser therapy, I have improved significantly. I have much less pain in my leg and back. Putting on socks is an easy task now. Unfortunate due to medical restrictions in consuming many green vegetables, I may not be getting some nutrients. But, my husband and I, eat chicken, pork and fish over red meat. We primarily use olive oil in cooking. As of this day, Jan 26, 2021, I can say that I have achieved improvement of 60%.

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.

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!

I have been experiencing back and neck pain. Since starting seeing the chiropractor, I’m experiencing less pain in my back, legs, and neck. Yes it did meet my expectations. I scored faster relief from the laser and Pro Adjuster. Yes I would recommend this to anyone with pain. I can touch my toes when for the last thirty years it was hard for me to bend over. It will benefit me by keeping out of pain. I have seen improvement in my back within four visits!

My back was sore and sometimes very stiff in the mornings. I figured that was part of the aging process and I would have to accept it; but when I started having trouble picking up my grandkids, I knew I needed help.
My doctor recommended that I see a chiropractor so I made an appointment with Dr. Garner. He took an x-ray and I could see the curvy line of my spine. At the bottom it was actually starting to rotate. I was diagnosed with scoliosis along with compressed discs. Also, one hip was higher than the other. As I look at my twisted spine, I thought there is no way this could be fixed without surgery; but Dr. Garner’s fees are so reasonable, it made sense to ask him to try.
Three weeks after we started treatment, I could feel a definite improvement. After 12 weeks of treatment, Dr. Garner xrayed my back again and we compared it to my original x-ray. I was amazed. My spine was nearly straight, my discs had improved and my hips were almost level. After my 12 week re-evaluation, I had improved so much my treatments were cut back to once a week then they were cut back to once per month maintenance. Again, I was amazed.
I feel wonderful. I can spend long hours in the kitchen with no back pain. I get out of bed in the mornings with no stiffness. I can carry my grandkids around all day, up and down the stairs and feel great afterwards. As an added bonus, my golf swing is smoother!
Dr. Garner and his staff have created such a friendly and inviting atmosphere in his office that I look forward to my visits. There is almost no wait time. His whole office flows efficiently. I especially love his hydrotherapy table. It makes me feel so calm and refreshed. Anytime I hear someone complain about any type of body pain, I tell them they must go see Dr. Garner first. Dr. Garner treats all parts of the body. He also hosts a wellness forum in his office on a regular basis. Dr. Garner has definitely improved my quality of life- WITHOUT SURGERY! I thank him every day!

My visits to Dr. Garner for back issues have been always beneficial to me. I have a lower back injury which affects my upper back and the treatments relieve the issues and helps prevent further problems. I am always treated in a professional manner and never have a long wait to be seen. The facilities are clean and the staffs with their wonderful smiles are amazing and helpful. Love this place!
Kate Buscher APRIL 2017
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.
Kenny Koonts June 2019
Hello, my name is Kenny Koonts, I am a very active person. I do construction and play drums up and down the east coast. I woke up one morning and couldn’t even walk to the bathroom, didn’t know what happened. My boss directed me to Dr. Crilley. After my MRI they discovered I have a bulging disk and 2 degenerative disks. The pain was unbearable. The doctor and staff shuffled me right in, very friendly and even concerned enough to give me his personal phone number. Which I didn’t use but it was a nice gesture.
In two weeks’, time they had me a lot better but I sneezed and relapsed back to the start. They rushed me back in and two weeks later I was back again. He said he would get me back to square one and they did. I would recommend Dr. Crilley to anyone with back problems. THEY CAN’T BE BEAT!! Thank you for all you did. I’m back to working and jamming again!!
Kevin Myers Sr. May 2021
Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing lower back pain with difficulty getting up and down. My back had not been right for some while, I just put things off and unfortunately I found myself in an acute situation.
I was able to get into Dr.Garner’s office for evaluation the same day I called and my treatment program developed and implemented immediately. I have found all the staff to be very professional, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable and have far exceeded my expectations.
Since starting regular chiropractic care, I have become pain free with much more flexibility. I’ve learned that I have neglected giving proper attention needed to my back and spine and will continue with the full course of recommended treatment along with stretching, walking and other physical activity I have avoided for some while. I was once an avid golfer and have been inactive for several years. I can see chiropractic not only getting me pain free and more flexible, but also allowing me to play golf again. I’ve already started to practice.
Kevin Wilburn May 2021
Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing very bad lower back pain. I couldn’t sit or stand for any length of time. I went to an orthopedic doctor, and was told there was nothing they could do so they sent me to physical therapy, which helped but didn’t last long. My back pain started to get worse. One evening my wife was looking on Facebook and came across Grand Strand Health and Wellness. So I thought I would call and make an appointment and I’m glad I did! As soon as I walked in I knew I had made the right choice. The staff was very friendly, and made me feel welcomed. Dr. Luis was very through and explained the problems I have with my back as well as my shoulders. Also Cassidy and Beatrina are the best. They explained the treatment therapy I was getting, which is really helping. You can’t put a price on your health. What I was charger is worth every penny. I recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness to everyone, especially if you have any time of spinal situation, or nay if you have never been to a chiropractor.
When I started coming here I had very limited movement and in just a few weeks wasn’t feeling any numbness and pain has let up. I will continue to come back because the rewards to me are great. I would suggest to anyone to come here.
LINDA HOOD SEPTEMBER 2020
I received a pleasant reception when I survived for my initial consultation. A detailed evaluation of my body systems affected by my various health problems and previous surgical and athletic injuries was completed. I wanted to be able to walk without a limp which would require attention to multiple joints including my swollen knees and stiffness in my lower back and hips. I also needed relief of poor balance due to numbness is on both feet which resulted from prior surgeries.
My decreased ability to walk added to muscle weakness from inactivity. Poor balance and weakness caused my gout to look like a stagger and I could no longer participate in sports and social activities. A comprehensive plan with explanation of procedures and financial impact felt right like I’d come to the right place. I enrolled and immediately began.
Daily adjustments by doctor addressed my symptoms since last visit. A body roller table and warm water massage bed made my spine more flexible. Cold laser and electrical nerve stimulation and magnetic therapy (PEMF) were used to awaken the nerves and muscles of my lower feet and legs. These built strength in my numb feet and muscles of lower legs up to my knees and swelling of joints decreased.
My walk became better balanced and I could walk smoother without limping. I had received homework of exercises and I soon resumed walking and biking. I also received instructions for anti-inflammatory diet with details of specialized supplements and protein shakes. I felt better and lost 5-10lbs. I was able to return to a healthy lifestyle!
Smiling staff addressed me by name and within 3 weeks commented on my improved walk. I focused on reading notebooks containing peer-revised research articles about wellness and chiropractic care. For COVID-19, face masks, hand sanitizers, and monitored entry for distance and thorough cleaning after each person was utilized. As a retired medical professional with medical issues I was reassured. I did come to a great place and am pleased with improvements and will continue the program. This practice has met my highest expectations. For someone who hasn’t tried it yet I would tell them to come here BEFORE surgery. My surgeries were considered successful, but left me with residual difficulties I could have avoided.

Testimonial for Dr. Chris Garner, Chiropractor, and Kathy Summers, Massage Therapist, at Grand Strand Health and WellnessChris Garner, D.C. is my third chiropractic experience, and Kathy Summers is my second massage therapist. They are by far the longest in duration and the best terms of results. In the past, I would reach a crisis of pain and immobility from mid-back scoliosis and lower back strain. This would require intense treatment until everything stabilized, and then I would stop therapy, thinking I was “fixed.” I’ve always practiced preventative medicine when it came to physical fitness and nutrition, but it took me a while to be equally kind to my spine. I have finally learned the “maintenance” lesson, coming regularly every two weeks for the past five years for an adjustment, therapy, and massage. Together, the GSH&W team helps me unravel the stress of work, release my computer shoulders, and prevent sciatic nerve flare-ups. I generally know where I’m holding tension, but Dr. Garner’s work with the Pro-Adjuster and manual manipulation always reunifies my system, while Kathy’s magic intuitive fingers go right to the problem spot. I am grateful to the entire office staff for caring, kind, and quality service.
Linda Long September 2021
Before starting chiropractic care I was experiencing severe pain in my lower back and down my leg. Since starting chiropractic care I’ve been able to get around so much better because I’m not having the everyday pain. It has truly exceeded my expectation. Within a couple weeks I started noticing a big difference and now half way through it’s truly amazing how much better I’m doing. I’ve been to other chiropractors but this one by far has done the best. It was definitely worth the money. Everyone there was just wonderful. I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone.
LINDA STIWALT AUGUST 2020
When I came to Dr. Crilley in 2019, I could barely move. I was in such pain in my lower back and nothing I did helped stop it. After two years my pain is almost gone. Keeping a wellness plan is IMPORTANT to recovery. All the staff are wonderful. They are kind and very understanding of what each patient is experiencing. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Crilley and his staff!!
Lou Haarstick June 2019
Since coming here my pain has dramatically reduced. I can once again enjoy my life! The team has helped me so much!
Mary Austin July 2019
I have suffered with lower back pain for 15 years. I was unable to walk any distance before getting a pulling sensation and pain in my lower back. I have tried shots in my back for years and also had the nerves burnt several times. Every time the doctor would give me a different pain pill. After seeing the wonderful people here at GSHW I have less pain, no drugs and I have improved tremendously. I only wish I had found GSHW years ago. The doctor and staff are exceptional. I suggest you try this treatment now. Don’t waste your time with meds that harm you!!
Mary Kathryn Ross January 2022
The people who work at Grand Strand Health and Wellness are amazing! I’m so glad that I came in for a consultation. Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing (moderate) constant pain in my lower back and severe pain when I stretched, lifted anything, stood for more than ten minutes, or walked for more than fifteen minutes. After about ten sessions I no longer have constant pain and I’m able to stretch, lift, stand, and walk without severe pain.
Michele Ford November 2021
On Wednesday, 10/6/21, I bent over to pick up something and could literally not straighten up. I consulted with Grand Strand Health and Wellness on Friday 10/8/21. They diagnosed and suggested a treatment plan which I began on Monday 10/11. I went from excruciating pain and a weekend of icing to the beginning of a process that alleviated that pain within a week. The tightness of my lower back was relieved within two weeks, thanks to my treatments and the stretches, exercises and physical therapy. I was able to golf eleven holes by 10/23 without pain. I was able to play eighteen holes 10/30. The tightness in my back is GONE and I’m looking forward to strengthening my core and improving my spinal issues. I have never been to a chiropractor and was very skeptical. I would highly recommend this practice and the professional, skilled team at Grand Strand Health and Wellness.
Michele Johnson April 2016
Pain? All over, all the time. Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain for so long and it was so pervasive and chronic that I could not pinpoint what specifically was hurting or when the pain began. I was perpetually exhausted but struggled to get to sleep at night. Mornings were a battle with the snooze alarm because my nights were so restless. Instead of waking rested and refreshed, I felt as if I had been run over my a Mack truck. Daily, I was foggy headed and lethargic. The numbness in my hands and arms was virtually debilitating. Sitting for very long made my back and neck hurt, but standing for very long made my legs and back hurt. I was utterly miserable. My chronic pain quelled any possible motivation for activity and my quality of life was minimal and continued to diminish.
I did not have previous chiropractic experience so I was not really sure what I should expect. I did have high hopes that chiropractic treatment might finally be the answer to my health issues and I have not been disappointed. Now that I have been receiving regular chiropractic care from Dr. Garner, my quality of life has greatly improved. I am no longer experiencing chronic pain. I find I am able to fall asleep easily and I often wake before my alarm goes off. I now wake feeling rested and refreshed enough to exercise daily before work. The painful numbness in my hands and arms has just about disappeared and I feel that I have more clarity of thought. I also have a great deal more energy which has allowed me to be more active. My increased activity has resulted in weight loss and muscle tone. I plan to continue with wellness visits once my initial treatment plan is finished because I never want to be in the poor shape I was in before starting chiropractic care. There are a few things I have experienced at Dr. Garner’s office that I appreciate and cause me to highly recommend this practice for others. First and foremost is the respect for my appointment time. If I have been scheduled at 4:30, I am seen by 4:30. This office is very efficient and I have never been left sitting past my appointment time. Dr. Garner and his office staff are welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable about chiropractic care and individual patients and their needs. I am greeted by name when I walk in the door and Dr. Garner and the staff members remember my preferences and what I am being treated for. I also appreciate all the supplemental information and focus on wellness and living a healthier lifestyle that is pervasive throughout the office. This chiropractic treatment is the single best investment I have ever made for my health and the benefits have greatly improved the quality of my life.
Michele Nix DECEMBER 2019
After my initial thorough and knowledgeable consultation, I felt confident the plan outlining for me would work and benefit my overall health going forward. The warm and friendly STAFF makes each visit a pleasure!
Mike Ross July 2019
I have had chronic back pain for 40 years and decided to give chiropractic care a chance. I am so glad I did as
Grand Strand Health and Wellness has eliminated my pain after a few treatments. The doctors and staff are very professional and very friendly, they make you feel like one of the family and really care about your well-being. Their equipment and latest technology are very effective. My appointments are always on time as their organizational structure is outstanding. If you suffer from back or joint pain, I would highly recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness.
Naomi Harris August 2015
A few years ago I started having back pain. I consulted an orthopedist and his recommendations were surgery or drugs. Since neither option was desirable to me, I chose to deal with the pain. A few months ago the pain had increased to the point where I was in constant pain. I attend St. Michael Catholic Church and Dr.Chris Garner has an advertisement in our church bulletin. I read his ad for several weeks, and then decided to give him a try. I will freely admit I was very skeptical when I made my first appointment. How could a chiropractor help me when an orthopedist couldn’t? I am now a believer! My first appointment was a comprehensive physical exam to determine my problem areas. A plan of action was presented and explained to me in terms I could clearly understand. I started my therapy a week later and if I didn’t believe in miracles before, I am a believer now! I have been in therapy for about six weeks and I am almost pain free. I can do things that were either impossible or extremely painful before. But Dr. Chris doesn’t just treat your physical problems; he teaches you how to live a better and healthier life. Dr. Chris hosts a Health and Wellness workshop twice each month, the focus of which is ways and means for living a healthier life. While sitting in his waiting area or undergoing therapy, you can watch TV and learn interesting and factual information about a variety of subjects that can improve your quality of life, or expand your base of knowledge. Dr. Chris also offers a selection of goods that are both nutritional and functional. Dr. Chris and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and helpful. As soon as you walk in to the office, you are greeted by name with smiles all around. You are made to feel like you are special and in fact, to Dr. Chris and staff, you are very special. It has been a very satisfying experience for me. If you are undecided about whether chiropractic care can benefit you, don’t hesitate any longer. Make an appointment, get your evaluation and start living a healthier life!
Noreen Gordon June 2015
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.
Norman Winkler December 30, 2013
Upon experiencing severe pain and discomfort from a back issue that deprived me of sleep for weeks, I went to a chiropractor for the first time ever. Like many people, I had my doubts regarding the practice. With the incentive of a coupon provided by a friend that covered all cost for the first initial visit, I went to see Dr. Garner. After the initial evaluation, I started a schedule of treatment and within two and a half weeks the pain went away and has not returned. I continued with the prescribed treatment and into a maintenance cycle to prevent any further problems and am I glad that I did! When a subsequent injury occurred a few months later while playing pickle ball, I had no reservations about going back to Dr. Garner and once again the results in a relatively short time were absolutely positive. I have also gotten several helpful suggestions from Dr. Garner regarding various health issues as he is always ready to provide advice in many areas such as diet, exercise, etc. I have no hesitation to recommend Dr. Garner to anyone for a variety of issues and learned that you can teach an old dog new tricks!
Pamela Taylor – July 31, 2012
I heard about the Pro Adjuster Chiropractic care from my mother in law. Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing neck and lower back pain. The range of motion in my neck was poor and I was not able to vacuum without pain. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing the following positive changes of no longer having the extreme lower back pain and my range of motion in my neck has improved. I am truly blessed to have found such a caring doctor. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by continuing my care with Dr. Garner on a regular basis to keep my spine as healthy as possible. If somebody I knew hasn’t tried it yet, I would recommend it because it’s a safe and simple way to relieve so much pain.
Pat Morgan May 2021
A month ago, I was in horrible lower back pain and also pain in both hips. I was unable to walk any distance or to do the one thing I love to do ….. Read. I could not sit for more than a few minutes at a time and definitely not long enough to read a few pages of the latest thriller novel. At that point, I began looking for help and discovered Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I had never considered chiropractic care, but after doing my research, I was hoping for some relief and improvement in my life. From the moment I walked into this beautiful facility, I was greeted by the staff and made me feel welcome and cared for. After my x – rays and examination by Dr. Crilley, a treatment plan was designed for my particular complaint. GSHW uses state – of – the – art equipment and has professional and caring staffs that are committed to improving my quality of life. I have experienced marked improvement in my pain level since starting treatment. Everyone is always encouraging and go the extra step to help me be pain free. I am so pleased with my choice of GSHW for the treatment of my back and hip pain, and would highly recommend them to anyone suffering from persistent pain.
Pat Andrews August 22, 2012
Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing lower back pain, sinus pain and pressure. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing the following positive changes of minimal lower back pain + No sinus pain. A general overall “feeling better” and a more positive attitude. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by reducing my pain, wherever it may show up, and provide me with wellness. If somebody I knew hasn’t tried it yet, I would recommend it because… IT WORKS! It’s safe- without chemicals.

RECORD OF WEIGHT LOSS
My special thanks to Dr. Garner and his staff for starting me on a path towards improved wellness, mobility, and mental attitude.
My wife and I started seeing Dr. Garner for back and neck issues during the summer of 2010. I found out that I had vertebrae out of alignment as well as three lower back vertebrae that had become fused as a result of a childhood accident (I had no symptoms of pain & was not aware of this situation). Had this not been addressed now, additional vertebrae would have fused and my mobility would have been limited even further over time. While the fused vertebrae cannot be fixed, my treatment allows me to maximize the mobility I can have. I have more mobility to play golf, fewer neck and back pains, and more energy.
However, the most visible improvement in my life is demonstrated above. It was a weight loss program endorsed by Dr. Garner and used by himself, as well as some of his staff. I had been over eating as a response to stress in my life. The HCG aided weight loss program allowed me to lose 40 lbs in about 40 days. I have kept all the weight off through the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. I feel better than I have in 20 years. Have more energy, mobility, and ability to handle stressful situations without resulting to binge eating as a coping mechanism. I have changed what I eat permanently. Proteins, vegetables, and fruits are the basics. I don’t even miss “bad” foods. At parties, I often drink flavored water instead of alcohol to help maintain weight loss.
Since becoming a patient at Dr. Garner’s Grand Strand Health and Wellness offices, I have adopted a healthier and happier life style that I did not think possible. I continue to be involved in a periodic maintenance program to maintain what I have gained. These life style changes have produced results for me in a matter of a few months. Sincerely…Richard Gill….Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Rick Thompson A.K.A Coach December 2021
The staff at Grand Strand Health and Wellness is second to none. They all are very professional and willing to listen to your wellness concerns.
Robert Rogers June 2020
With constant back pain it is hard to play with your children making you feel less than a perfect parent. Through Chiropractic care I was able to start playing with my son more. All days are not perfect, but I can definitely tell a difference. I can also sleep better at night with the care I received. I highly recommend chiropractic care to anyone with aches and pains to help them live a healthier life.
Ronald Burchianti September 5, 2013
I was completely crooked and had severe pain in my lower back. After only two treatments, I was greatly improved. The treatments were completely painless, comfortable, and made me feel good. Dr. Garner and his staff are incredible! They are informative as treatment is being administrated, answering any and all concerns and questions. They are also extremely pleasant. My back is completely straight and all pain is gone! I for one will definitely continue monthly or bi-monthly maintenance for my good health. Do yourself a favor – Meet Dr. Garner and get an evaluation. It will change your life!
Shirley Wheeler October 2015
When I started treatment on my back, I could only stand in the kitchen 15 minutes before I had to sit and rest. Now 6 weeks later, I can go 30 minutes before I have to rest, same for the grocery store. I couldn’t feel my feet and I suffered, now I have a little feeling and am walking better (not good) but better!
Sophia Finnegan July 26, 2013
Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing lower back and neck pain. Since starting regular chiropractic care I am experiencing some relief in my neck and lower back.
The staff is so prompt, reliable, and caring. This is my first time in chiropractic care. It helps that my insurance pays some of the cost. I would recommend this care to my friends. I am looking forward to less pain and a better health report. Thank you Dr. Garner and staff!
Stephen Linzenbold Mar 2013
Chiropractic care has significantly improved my lower back problems. After each visit I come away with a wonderful sense of well-being. Not only have my back problems been relieved, but problems I had experienced with anal discomfort have been alleviated. The massages are also fantastic. I highly recommend them to anyone.
Tara Burfening October 2021
I have been seeing chiropractors for over 25 years for lower back pain. When I moved here from VA seven years ago, I had to find and trust a new Chiropractor. That is hard to do when you leave a great one behind. I was satisfied for a few years with the new doctor I found, but once he left the practice I quit going. Two years later, I found myself to be in quite a bit of pain so I knew I needed to do something. A friend of mine highly recommended Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I have been getting regular chiropractic care for almost one month now. I already feel a lot better in just that short of time. I have never experienced a practice like this one. Everyone is over the top wonderful to be around, the care I get is always with a smile, and there is no wait time. I have also never experienced a very detailed consultation and explanation of what my issues are and a full game plan that will benefit my health and wellbeing. I was also impressed with the reading material you hand out which provides a lot of great information and understanding of the importance of chiropractic care. I searched through other chiropractors and found you to be on board with the BEST technology and doctors to help me feel better! I would recommend this practice to anyone who needs chiropractic care and any other health and wellness attention. YOU WON’T REGRET YOUR DECISION. It is definitely worth your overall health. Thank you!!!
Thomas Pierce November 2017
Before coming to Dr. Garner I was suffering from severe lower back pain. Since beginning my treatment I am noticing my pain has decreased. So I am taking less pain meds a day. The staff is all very professional and friendly. They have helped improve my condition. For someone looking at chiropractic service I would recommend this practice to my friend,
Tonya Thompson July 2020
Since coming to Grand Strand Health and Wellness, I have been so much happier. Grand Strand Health and Wellness has been an absolute blessing for me. Everyone there are professional, caring, and knowledgeable. They are welcoming and there’s no place like it. I absolutely love everyone there, and I’m definitely healthier for being treated here. Thanks to everyone I have encountered at GSHW; also a special thanks to Trina, Dr. Crilley, Paige, and, Bridgett.
Troy Bonds May 2021
Before starting the chiropractic service I was experiencing lower back pain. Since starting mu back pain has stopped but I’m now experiencing tingling in my feet. The staff is trying their best to help with that. The decompressions helped a lot. I wish there was a way I can just receive decompression but I really can’t afford it. The exercises I do work but I feel that hands on stretching helps works better. All in all I’m satisfied with my services.
Trudy Storer October 2017
Before starting chiropractic care I was in an auto accident and was hit on the side of the car by a large truck. This resulted in back pain. Since starting chiropractic care my symptoms are not as bad, I am pain free except for if I stand on my feet for too long. I am very pleased with my progress. The staff here is very knowledgeable and pleasant. My daughter told me about the practice. I’m glad I made the decision to come. I Am doing much better.
