Alina House    November 2017

I started chiropractic care because like all of us in the past couple of years, I experienced a host of aches and pains. Headaches, back pain, neck pain, joint pains, and even trouble sleeping. I also thought that these are the “benefits” of getting old, and the only thing to do is treat the symptoms with different medicine. But, since I started regular chiropractic care all of my symptoms improved, despite being a little skeptical at the beginning. The treatment works, and I got a lot more care and results for the price! Also, the doctors and staff provide a lot of information, educating the patient instead of asking me to accept the results and the treatment without questions. The staff is great and they make the whole experience much more pleasant than any other doctors visits!   A+++

Arthur Corneliusen April 2016

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.

Chris Williams  January 2019

My back problems started the weekend of Thanksgiving. My last visit to a chiropractor 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 its 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.


In 2015 I was hit by a car walking at that time I thought that I would be okay. I lived in Florida at that time and was going to therapy. Two months later I moved to Myrtle Beach. Even though I complained to the doctors about my neck, shoulders, back, and knee that I was in a lot of pain they did nothing for me. I had been in constant pain for the past three years and led a miserable life. Since starting regular chiropractic care three weeks ago I have been pain free for 15 days.

I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future and look forward to taking better care of myself. I highly recommend chiropractic care to all of my family and friends. The chiropractic care staff is excellent- friendly, warm and caring. Dr. Crilley has been just wonderful; he answers all my questions and even had An educational session explaining what chiropractic is and how it heals your body. His adjustments have given me back my body and my life. I could never thank you all enough for caring for me and making me better.

Connie Piccoli July 2019

When we saw the ad on Facebook, what do we have to loose, on a wing and a prayer on the wings of an angel and prayer sent to God. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah is what I was singing when my hand I had no feeling in, I could feel little pinches after two years. The tears came down my face! Oh My God!!!! His helper Dr. Garner and Dr. Crilley God’s Angels and after 3 treatments is that a hallelujah yes it is. Sure everyone is skeptical, but they work hard to get rid of that. The staff even more angels always smiles, always from love and really sincere, everyone with their own unique personality. Make you feel like you’re coming home for lunch or dinner so sit down get comfortable because your home. Thank you for being a great office and staff, and for helping someone who thought this is how I will live the rest of my last years.  OH NO! Grand Stand Health and Wellness will not allow that, they have a different motto, LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST WITH NO PAIN!! I am happy with no pain 75 and not acting like my age, but finally able to enjoy my life!!

Darlene Chapman September 2020

I can’t believe the difference chiropractic treatments have made in my neck. I’m excited to continue therapy for my lower back. Before I started chiropractic care, I was experiencing bad neck pain. Since starting regular chiropractic care, I’m experiencing that my neck pain is almost gone. I love the laser treatment. This practice met and exceeds my expectations. The services are prompt and reliable. The chiropractors that I have been to in the past only offered “cracking” manual adjustment, but Grand Strand Health and Wellness has the Pro Adjuster and there is no more cracking. I feel that I got what I paid for with the adjustments and treatments. There is nothing to dislike because I am very pleased with the experience at this office. I would recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness to my family and friends. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by continuing therapy. If somebody knew hasn’t tried it yet, I would recommend it because I feel better and everyone is caring and willing to work with your schedule.

Diane White February 2015

I was a medical technologist in a major medical center for thirty years. I spent many hours during that time with my head bent down over my work station or computer keyboard; I also had an injury to my neck (whiplash) while snow skiing. I had off and on pain in my neck and shoulders for years. I would take NSAIDS for the pain but when I retired and was away from the stress, the pain went away. However this past year, the pain came back and it seemed to me that it came back to stay and along with it, headaches. I did not want to take pain medicine for the rest of my life so I decided to try chiropractic care. I have been very pleased with the results. I rarely take medicine for neck pain or headaches and generally feel better and have more energy. 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.

Donald Halbohn April 2019

My neck, shoulders, upper back and lower back were a mess. I have been coming to GSHW for 3 weeks now and I have seen a vast improvement. My upper and lower back is fine now. My neck and shoulders have greatly improved. My days and nights are a lot more comfortable now.  I will say that at first, I was skeptical of all the new high-tech equipment, but not anymore. It all seems to be working towards improving my health. Will I recommend GSHW? I already have spoken highly of GSHW to my son and daughter, the people I speak to at the gym and anyone else who will listen.

                                  Thank you, Dr. Garner, Dr. Crilley and the entire staff!!

                                                             RING THE BELL!!

Doug Jennings February 2015

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.

Gayle Bobino 7-22-10

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

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

I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by… Continuing my treatments, and be consistent with the doctors orders. Stay Healthy.If somebody I knew hasn’t tried it yet, I would recommend it because… It has changed my life physically and mentally. Amazing results- thanks Dr. Garner!

George David Smith April 2016

My wife, Wanda Smith, was trying to locate one of her Doctors whose name is also Dr. Garner. When the receptionist answered the telephone she found that this was not Dr. Garner the surgeon, but was Dr. Garner the chiropractor. Somehow my wife struck up a conversation with the receptionist and scheduled me an appointment to see Dr. Garner.

At my first appointment I was given a grand tour of the facility and also had a few x-rays taken. 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.

I am only half way through my treatment plan, but I feel 100% better than I was on my first visit. I have energy that I have not felt in 15 years, and I am able to move without hurting or tiring out. My only regret is that I had not found Dr. Garner 20 years earlier. I would highly recommend anyone to come to the office and have an examination to see if any of your aches and pains, or other health problems could be stemming from an “out of whack back.” Please remember that the treatments are well worth the expense. They have several plans to choose from to finance the cost of the treatments. Best of all, the treatments are gentle and painless.

George Heger May 30, 2013

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.

Jeanette Berry   November 2017

As of 11-15-17 I am pain free!! My journey with Grand Strand Health and Wellness has resulted with the following results:

  1. No pain in my jaw.
  2. No pain in the heel of my right foot.
  3. No pain in my neck and shoulders.
  4. No pain in my hips.
  5. No longer have to take prescription blood pressure medicines (with all the side effects) use instead Chiropractor’s Blend Nitric Oxide Booster.

No cramping in feet, use muscle ease PM—also helps me sleep.

Joe Bispo    November 2017

Came in for drop foot, poor balance, and stiff neck  So far not experiencing much for drop foot, however my wife sees a 15-20% improvement in my balance. Neck moves more freely. Enjoy the roller bed and foot massager, I really can’t comment in laser. For me it’s not something “I feel” but working deeper. I’d recommend if insurance helps out.

John Frangelli   July 31, 2012

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.

Kathy Raponi April 2019

Definitely seeing a difference in my posture. Also, my neck feels aligned as it should be, my legs do not cramp at night. I appreciate that they can zoom in on particular areas that need adjusted.

Kenny Crawford  July 30, 2012

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.

Leveta Pierce April 2016

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!

Loetta Haigler February 2015

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.

Margaret Carmichael September 2015

Prior to starting my care at Grand Strand Health and Wellness, I was experiencing extreme neck and back pain.  It limited my range of motion, my strength, and my sleep. Since beginning treatment, I have No neck pain and little lower back pain. My range of motion is almost normal, my strength is back, and I sleep well! Best of all, I feel well enough to go back to practicing yoga, which I had to stop because of pain. Another positive about GSHW is the efficiency of the staff. Patients are seen with little to no wait time, everyone is friendly, and it’s an enjoyable experience overall! I look forward to continuing my care and maintenance!

Marlene Hehnke April 2016

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.

Matthew Alford FEBRUARY 2017

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!

Matt Gilliand May 2021

Before the start of my care I had been in pain for years, but I did not realize the damage that was being done to my spine. The staff here has done an excellent job in educating me about the importance of spinal health, and every one of them displays a genuine interest in my continued improvement. Over time, my pain has decreased to almost nothing, and I definitely feel that I got my money’s worth out of the detailed treatment plan. I would absolutely recommend this practice to anyone with aches and pain they cannot get rid of.

Nicole Engle May 2021

When I came to Grand Strand Health and Wellness I had severe neck pain and was unable to do everyday tasks. After 3 months of treatments I have significantly less pain, some days of zero pain, and I am backing to living my life. The staff is welcoming and caring, everyone knows you by name. I appreciate the efficiency and timeliness of appointments. I have had nothing but positive experiences at Grand Strand Health and Wellness and recommend them to anyone experiencing neck or back pain. It is amazing to walk in with pain and walk out pain free and completely relaxed.

Paul J. Monheim Jr. April 2016

I used my Pyramid Pillow as a first responder for my morning stiffness of my neck. Pyramid Pillow stopped the neck pain to headache, to migraine spiral I have experienced in the past. Now Pyramid Pillow is part of my regular scheduled thing to do.

Richard Mock DECEMBER 2019

Before beginning chiropractic care I was experiencing a lot of neck and back pain. At times it could be debilitating and led to severe headaches and sometimes numbness in my arms. Since starting chiropractic care these issues have subsided drastically! I was skeptical at first, but have been very pleased with my results so far.

In addition to having less pain, I am sleeping better and feeling less stress in my life. The doctors and staff have all been extremely informative and helpful. My work schedule can be difficult, but they have came out of their way to fit me in. I highly recommend GSHW and look forward to continuing my chiropractic care now and in the future.

Russell Hall June 2017

While attending your facility with my wife I had a conversation with Dr. Crilley. I explained some problems I was having. These problems were pain in neck, radiating down my back, hips and legs. I was advised lets do an x-ray to determine if they could give me some relief of my pain. This is my third week of adjustments and care. I do feel I am progressing from my treatment. I feel less pain in my back area. I am getting out of bed easier since I started also walking better. I would highly recommend this facility to others. Service and staff are excellent.

Sandra Hynes – September 23, 2014

After suffering for a couple of weeks with a nagging pain in my neck and shoulder, I did something quite out of the ordinary. I remembered a friend of mine telling me what a success she had after seeing a chiropractor, and even though I had never consulted one before, I decided that if something could be done that didn’t require a shot or pills, I was willing to give it a try. Thankfully, I was able to get in to see Dr. Chris Garner fairly quickly and a therapy and exercise program was begun. I am happy to say that the pain is almost non-existent at this point in my treatment and I would heartedly recommend him if you are experiencing any sort of discomfort. I would also like to say that the office is run like a well-oiled machine. Lisa does a fantastic job of moving the patients from the therapy tables to the doctor’s chair for the pro-adjuster treatment. And, in fact, all of the office staff is extremely helpful and always ready to answer any questions you may have.

Stacie Scoggin June 2019

Since starting PEMF, my neck, and shoulders aren’t as tight and I have more range of motion. Kim is wonderful at making sure all affected areas are addressed and the treatments don’t take very long. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who has tried other means but still suffer from ongoing pain and stiffness.

Stephen Klunk February 2019

I was experiencing neck, shoulder and lower back pain, numbness in my left arm and hand: pinched nerve in my left hip. My pain is now minimal. My treatment exceeded my expectations. Service was exceptional, friendly and concerned staff. Equipment is higher technology (no cracking of bones). I would highly recommend this practice and have referred many patients. I will continue to do so!!

Sue Ellis    September 2014

Before I started chiropractic care, I was experiencing a lot of pain in both shoulders, neck and both knees.  Since starting regular care, I’m experiencing the following positive changes:  less pain, able to walk and stand more and taking less pain pills from my pain mgt Dr. Mayhew.  I can say my expectations have been exceeded because I have bone on bone in both knees and was facing two surgeries that my doctors didn’t want me to have as I am a recent cancer patient with a lot of blood clots associated with a double embolism in 2012.  You get prompt, reliable service. You very rarely wait for appointments as they take care of you as soon as you walk in the door most of the time.  This has been a very good and rewarding experience.  I also love the staff.  They are all very friendly.  I feel I get what I pay for here.  Between the instruments Dr. Garner uses on me and the cold laser therapy, I can walk without a lot of pain and that is new for me and a most pleasant result. As for likes and dislikes, I have liked everything so far.  You will have to experience it for yourself and you will know what I am talking about.  I certainly would recommend this practice and have already given out two of their cards to my friends.  You need to meet this doctor and his staff.  It is such an angelic atmosphere that it is hard to explain.  I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by what the procedures have done for me & all the information they give to you about wellness.  They also have books you can borrow.  When you are in therapy, you are constantly watching videos that enlighten you about things that you never knew about your health. If somebody I knew hasn’t tried this office yet, I would recommend it because of the results I noticed right away. The doctor’s bedside manner & all the friendly smiles just make for a wonderful positive attitude from the doctor all the way to the receptionist that greets you upon arrival.  This is not your every day doctor’s office where you just wait & wait while no one pays attention to you.  Oh and I forgot, they have a wonderful water cooler, hot chocolate, coffee and hot tea.  What more could you ask for.  One day they even had cake because it was one of the staff’s  birthday.  They were sharing the cake with the patients; now you don’t find that in many offices.  I cannot say enough about this practice.  If you are experiencing pain in any of your joints, muscles, back problems or even if you are not sure, give them a call.  They will advise you as to how they can help with your particular problem.  I guarantee you will be happy.  This is a state of the art chiropractic office with the most modern equipment.  A lot of the other chiropractors in this area are still using their hands to crack your back as someone put it to me one day and twist your neck with their hands.  I would strongly advise you to visit the office for yourself and they would gladly show you what they are using and what they can do for you.  Oh, and by the way, I was not paid to say this; it is coming from my heart and my own personal experience.
