John La Rochelle September 2018

The laser treatment allowed me to stop taking medication for pain that I had been taking for years related to shingles. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Jean Rhodes MARCH 2017

For the last three or four years I had been experiencing knee pain and tingling in both legs at bedtime sometimes referred to as Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS).

          Not wanting to become addicted to pain medication, my husband and I started looking for a chiropractor since I had experienced some relief after seeing chiropractors at home in West Virginia.

          We saw an ad in the newspaper promoting the Grand Strand chiropractor offering laser treatment.           Since starting laser and chiropractic treatment care. I have improved and experience a good night’s sleep most nights. The staff at Grand Strand is exceptional and caring with little waiting time.

After talking to Dr. Garner about my elevated cholesterol level, He suggested the book (the 8 week Cholesterol Cure). After reading and following the information in the book, I had cholesterol levels around 222 and dropped to 141 in 12 months, through diet and supplements.

Pam Taylor December 2, 2013

I have to give the biggest hug in the world to Dr. Chris for helping me out in such a desperate time. I had a severe case of vertigo, which I had never had before, that left me so dizzy I couldn’t walk without tilting my head to one side. I was extremely nauseated and had a terrible night the night before. My husband suggested that we go see Dr. Chris. We are both patients of his. We had no appointment and we arrived 15 minutes before closing. He and his staff were so caring and concerned, but he knew right away how to take care of me. I am so thankful for his kindness, because it wasn’t a pretty ordeal. He has such a kind heart and hand and TRULY cares about his patients. If you are ever in need of a chiropractor, I highly recommend him and his wonderful office staff.

Paul Szaszkiewicz April 2016

Before I started chiropractic care with Grand Strand Health and Wellness, I was experiencing vertigo daily due to my Meniere’s Disease. It left me unable to do simple tasks around the house and yard as well as drive to places I needed to go. After several sessions with Dr. Garner, my vertigo went away and I was able to resume a normal life. The sessions were prompt and Dr. Garner explained to me what he saw wrong on his examinations and x-rays. At the end of my sessions, he showed me what he corrected to solve my problems. I would recommend Dr. Garner to anyone that may have Meniere’s Disease or vertigo because of my positive experience I had with my issues.

I was looking for someone I could trust to do manual adjustments as I have found various other methods in the past unproductive.


Dr. Chris Garner is certified to do both manual adjustments and the Pro Adjuster.  I have serious chronic problems, so I began with manual adjustments and then changed my mind.   The Pro Adjuster IS less traumatic, and while I’m not totally through the treatment period, I have greatly improved.  Treatment generally includes a period (before or after) on a roller or water massage bed, then an adjustment.  The Dr works from X-rays taken before and after the course of treatment.

I am very picky about chiropractors particularly because they are working with my neck.  I liked Dr. Garner and was impressed with his credentials, but at the beginning I was put off by the way the wellness center works.


The first session was an x-ray, watching a video on chiropractic care, and meeting the doctor.  I came back a few days later to find that if I wanted treatment, I would sign up for so many sessions, three days a week – and that it would cost $300 over the amount insurance would pay – because my insurance only covered adjustments and not the added therapy (heat, stimulation, time on the massage bed, etc).   In addition, I would be required to attend a class on wellness at some point during the treatment.


I was put off and said so to the office administrator.  On the other hand, I had been looking for someone I trusted for over a year, so I signed up.  When Dr. Chris called to see how I was doing (after the first treatment), I told him my feelings – and he said that it should have been dealt with differently, and that I had the option of not doing the added therapy.  I was impressed he called – and I was impressed he gave out his home number in case there is an emergency. 


I kept the treatment schedule and went to the class – then realizing why he requires it.  He wants to make sure people don’t stop treatment when they begin feeling better….and his view of wellness in holistic.  He gives out a lot of material, talks about diet, maintaining, etc.   It may just be my personality that balks about being told what to do and when, but there is no mistaking that he is an excellent doc with a lot of good ideas.


I should also say that I have Fibromyalgia that is quite severe.  During one session he realized that my entire shoulder was out of place – and he manually put it back in place.  There was incredible relief.  I have never had anyone do that – but it worked!


I gave them a B for staff friendliness because I did feel the administrator did not look at me as someone to work with or that the patients concern is at least equal to “the plan”.  On the other hand, the people administering the additional therapy and the doctor are all friendly, capable and caring.


I began the treatment with lower back issues and my physician recommended that I see an orthopedic surgeon.  I chose this route and I’m not sorry.  I’m walking like a real person again, and my shoulders and neck have much more flexibility.

Sandi Cronkey     _Septemer 8, 2008

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing severe muscle pain, extreme fatigue, depression, overall flu-like symptoms and extreme insomnia from Fibromyalgia. I now have pain relief, much better and higher quality sleep and the awful fatigue is gone. I have more energy and overall good positive feelings. My overall health will benefit as I stay on this path, eat healthy, exercise and keep my chiropractic appointments.  Our health and wellness is the biggest, most important asset we have.  I recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness because you are a full-circle office. I love what you have done for me!  

Shari Russell April 2016

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

Alice Stephenson February 2015

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!!

Anthony S. Knable – June 30th, 2014

Before I started chiropractic care, I was experiencing extreme pain in all my fingers and joints (osteoarthritis).  Since starting care, I have no pain and a very positive outlook.  My experience with this practice has exceeded my expectations.  The service is prompt compared to other practices. There is no waiting time.  I have gotten what I paid for and more.  I like that it is very comforting. I will recommend to everyone I know.  Regular chiropractic visits are in my future! Dr. Garner has helped me dramatically.

Joanne Knable October 17, 2014

I have had seven cold laser treatments on my right hand so far. I had been experiencing discomfort in my thumb and wrist. I went from a five in pain down to a three in just a few treatments. Thank you for the pain relief Dr. Garner, Cindy, Lisa, and staff!

Justin McIntyre May 2021

I’m so happy that I gave Grand Strand Health and Wellness a try. The therapy I have received for lower back pain, neck pain, hand numbness/pain/tingling, and sciatica, has made a huge difference. My discomfort/pain has decreased dramatically! Immediately, I started noticing a change. No longer was my back keeping me up at night, or killing me after a day at work, my left hand was no longer constantly giving me trouble. The various laser treatments on my hands have been a real game changer. The numbness/pain/tingling I once suffered has significantly subsided. I would also highly recommend having the Pro-Soft treatment and PEMF therapy. The PEMF might not be fun at first, but you feel great once you’re finished! Time spent on the rolling beds can’t be missed as well! Many thanks go to Dr. Crilley and the staff, particularly Trina and Cassidy, for their attention and care. They have made my visits to the clinic and friendly and enjoyable experience. I look forward to continuing my therapy at Grand Strand Health and Wellness and maintaining good chiropractic health into the future.

Micheal Fulmore FEBRUARY 2017

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my hand and knees. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing less pain. The experience with the practice exceeded my expectations. The service was reliable and prompt; also staff was very friendly. There was nothing that I didn’t dislike! I would definitely recommend Dr. Garner and his practice any chance I get because it really works out the pain! I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by coming once a month.

Ashley Gray June 2015

The care I receive is superior, from the consult and education which helped me to understand the issues I was experiencing, to the excellent customer service. The Pro Adjuster is non-invasive and less frightening than beginning with manual adjustments only. Dr. Garner listens and treats specific areas of concern as they may change each visit. Thank you for your outstanding service and convenient appointment scheduling!

Murrells Inlet, SC 29576

Dear Dr. Chris & Team:

I want to thank ALL of you for the wonderful team that you are and the exceptional way you treat your clients.

I attended a volunteer fair earlier this year, after relocating in January to Conway, SC. I was offered a complimentary evaluation, which I quickly took advantage of. Dr. Chris’ thorough exam made me feel confident that he had my best interest, and health, in mind. After about a month’s delay, I was able to get started in May. I am finishing up my visits, adjustments and massages and have to say that this has been the most beneficial chiropractic treatment I have ever received. (NOTE: I was seeing a chiropractor in Maryland for years and never felt this good).

I reside in Conway, close to Aynor, so the trip to Murrells Inlet is not close or necessarily convenient; however, receiving exceptional chiropractic care is of the utmost importance to me and my lifestyle. I have chosen Grand Strand Health & Wellness and am so thoroughly pleased that the distance is not an issue.

Each team member plays an important part. Terra is the best receptionist ever, a quick call and she can change my appointment times whenever needed. Teresa is thorough in her billing knowledge and carefully explains in detail what my financial responsibility is. Kathy is an awesome massage therapist and asks each visit what my needs are and hits all my trigger points. Morganne is one of the nicest people I have ever met and makes me feel important every time I walk in the door. And finally, Dr. Chris is the most knowledgeable chiropractor I have ever been associated with. His kind and sensitive demeanor is so appreciative in a world where doctors don’t necessarily take their patients seriously and look at us as just a number; not Dr. Chris. He treats us with professionalism, care and concern for our long-term health and well being.

Again, THANKS TEAM for a wonderful experience.

Sincerely,

JODY N.

John Ennis April 2016

I have been receiving chiropractic care for thirty one years and have never had the positive results that I have experienced since coming to Grand Strand Health and Wellness. Dr. Garner and his skillful hands have allowed me to play golf again and improve my quality of life. Thank you Doctor and your great staff!

John Moran February 2015

Having started chiropractic care, I have received the results that I was told to expect. I had been to another chiropractic care doctor before and the results were slow and long and not sufficient. With my care here with Dr. Garner I have had better and faster results. I am 87 years old and it is hard sometimes to do the exercises, but I try. I would recommend others to try their care with Dr. Garner. The staff and Dr. Garner are the most efficient and knowledgeable and kindest staff.

Madeline Mary Jones March 2017

My hair dresser Karen Porter gave me the gift certificate. I t was a gift of a lifetime! I was hesitant at first because I have been to several chiropractors and not satisfied with the results. The first visit I was greeted at the reception desk, they welcomed me as part of their family. My symptoms were explained and I understood the treatment plan was needed to relieve my problem. A financial plan was explained to me and it was very affordable.  As I went forward with my visit I was experiencing some positive changes and plan to continue my treatments and share my gift certificate with a friend and bring good health and wellness to their life!

Mari Sonko May 2021  

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing lots of pain and discomfort. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing less pain and more energy. The experience with the practice has definitely met my expectations. I got very reliable service. I am getting what I paid for. I love everything about it all there is nothing that I dislike. I would very much recommend this place. I can see my health change for the better. This place has helped me very much and continues to do so. The doctors, nurses and staff are all wonderful people.

Pat Fulton May 2021

I have been using chiropractic for over 30 years. I have had the best results here at Grand Strand Health and Wellness; the people are courteous and kind, very personable and professional. Thanks for everything you do!

Troy Noack May 2021  

Dr. Chris has done an exceptional job putting together this team! Everyone truly cares about you as a client and as a person. I truly care for everyone at the office and enjoy every visit.

Elaine Quadrozzi May 30, 2013

I’m 76 years old and usually felt what I thought was a normal experience of aches and pains. But at the beginning of March 2012, I was in agony with pain in my head, mainly behind my right ear. It became worse as time went on. After trying many avenues of tests and treatment with prescriptions, my primary doctor eventually referred me to a pain management doctor. I had two very expensive treatments that did nothing for the pain. A friend mentioned Dr. Garner and his method of treatment (Pro-Adjuster) and I went the day I couldn’t stand it anymore, which was approximately three months from the time the pain first began. I was a “walk-in” and Dr. Garner took me right away. Within a week, the pain started to subside! I couldn’t believe it! And within a month, the pain was 95% gone! After three months of taking pills as if they were M&Ms, after the first week, I have not had to take one pill! Dr. Garner and his staff were kind and compassionate. I was taken on time with every appointment and every time I left the office, I felt better than when I went in. I have been a regular patient for nine months and I’m on a maintenance schedule now and although I have never been a chiropractic patient before this episode, I cannot imagine not being treated by Dr. Garner for my well being in the future. I would highly recommend this practice. He and his staff have taken care of me so well that even those “normal” aches and pains are gone!

Joanne Casillo NOVEMBER 2019

I came to the office after being involved in a car accident. I was immediately impressed with the overwhelming friendliness of the staff of Grand Strand Health & Wellness, and the upbeat attitude everyone possessed. I felt so welcomed and well cared for here at my first visit and every visit since. My headaches have been less since getting decompression and adjustments from Dr. Crilley and I look forward to my visits just to see all the great staff. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone for pain or just regular health care. As a prior chiropractic patient my knowledge at this office has increased even more through their great teachings via the patient findings and health class. Thanks Grand Strand Health & Wellness!!!!                       

Melanie C. Warren – August 20, 2014

Before starting chiropractic care, I was having migraine headaches several times a week, numbness and loss of strength in my right hand, and severe TMJ. Within the first 4 weeks of care, my debilitating migraines have subsided tremendously and I have regained some of the feeling in my right hand. At first, I was a little skeptical of the Pro Adjuster because I have always had the “hands on” adjustments and thought that was the only way. Along with the Pro Adjuster, the therapy that I have received has been a plus. In the beginning, this type of treatment can be time consuming, and somewhat costly, however, once you start seeing positive results, start feeling better, and feel motivated, you will find it is well worth it. Dr. Garner and his staff are very knowledgeable about the type of individualized care they give. In addition to the personal touch that the Grand Strand Health and Wellness staff adds to each visit, the “No Wait” policy is awesome. When setting appointments, like most people, I set them to fit into my busy schedule. It is a breath of fresh air to know that I am going to be seen as scheduled and I am always in and out which is unlike any other doctors office visits these days. I have recommended Grand Strand Health and Wellness to several friends and encourage others outside of South Carolina to locate this very type of treatment. Overall, I feel that should I follow the doctor’s orders, I will be a much healthier and happier person!

Peggy Goins June 8th, 2014

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

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

The staff has been very pleasant and accommodating.  The service is above and beyond.  I would recommend this to others that may be suffering with the same symptoms. I see this program as a helpful benefit to my future by minimizing the tension and stress level of my daily activities!

Rebecca Burris September 2021

I will admit that I was running out of hope for my issues to be resolved until I visited Dr. Garner and his team at Grand Strand Health and Wellness. Their care and enthusiasm has been a life changer for me. When I first came in I was experiencing migraines daily, vertigo and constant pain.           After 2 visits to the ER and numerous appointments with my primary physician I felt no change in my conditions. However, after my first treatment at Grand Strand Health and Wellness I noticed a dramatic change for the good immediately. No headaches, no vertigo!! Since the first treatment I finally felt relieve! No medications needed! The entire team Dr. Garner has makes my visits pleasurable. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants their life back to normal, pain free!

Sandy FillersApril 2016

Before I started routine Chiropractic Care I was experiencing headaches, neck pain and lower back pain. I am beginning to feel better each day. I love coming in the mornings for my appointment it starts my day with a positive note from the staff and with the adjustment.

Sylvia Brainard May 2021

Before I started going to the chiropractor I was experiencing headaches, continuous back and neck pain. Within a couple of weeks my pain and discomfort has subsided to where I don’t think about it during the day.

It’s actually quite remarkable how they do it here. I recommend the laser treatment. I don’t have to take pain medication every day. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. They met with me to explain the cost of my care and the expected timelines to recover.

Beverly Ahr

Before I started chiropractic care I was having terrible hip pain, so much so, that I thought all my troubles were in my hips. I went to an Orthopedic Dr. who took x-rays of my hips and detected some arthritis, but nothing that should have been causing me the pain I was experiencing. After my neighbor recommended Grand Strand Health and Wellness, I decided to try chiropractic care again. Grand Strand Health and Wellness staff have been fantastic to work with. They pamper me while there! Between the Pro-Adjuster system and manual adjustments by Dr. Matt and Dr. Chris, I now have a better range of motion! I love the massage chair. I look forward to trying some of the other treatments that are available in the office. Since I have been coming here for adjustments, I feel so much better! I had been to two other chiropractors since moving to the area but were not satisfied with the treatments I received. I would recommend GSHW to everyone. I now know that to keep feeling 100%, I need to have chiropractic care in my life.

Dan Evans  June 2014

Several years ago, I was having sharp pain in my lower hip area. It was debilitating pain such that I could barely walk. A friend recommended Dr. Garner.  After about a dozen visits and following the recommended stretches and icing, the pain was gone and I could walk comfortably. I was skeptical at first that the technology would work but it did. Dr. Chris is a true professional, very knowledgeable and a wonderful person. I’m back for my lower back after surgery and already having great results. I tell everyone I know to put their chiropractic needs in Dr. Garner’s hands. His staff is also awesome.

Andrea Albert September 20, 2013

I started chiropractic care with Dr. Garner over a year ago when hip pain began to interfere with my normal routine and exercise regime. Dr. Garner diagnosed the issue right away and laid out a plan to correct the problem. I am happy to say that I no longer have that pain and I am back to my normal routine. When I recently started to experience pain in my left knee, the first person I went to see was Dr. Garner. Again, he diagnosed the issue and has had me on a plan using the cold laser treatment, adjustments, and exercises specific to the knee. After two weeks of treatment, the pain has decreased significantly. The staff at Grand Strand Health and Wellness is professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of their jobs. It is a pleasure to be a patient here!

Ben Hartman July 2016

My name is Ben Hartman and I have been experiencing pain for a great number of years. I have knee pain in both my knees, pain in my lower and upper back, and an enlarged heart that has slowed my blood rate volume to 22%. I have had no energy, very weak, and take a lot of pain pills for these problems.

After a single visit to Grand Strand Health and Wellness, Dr. Garner talked with me about my problems and recommended a treatment. I was very skeptical because chiropractic care was never mentioned by any of my doctors. X-rays were taken and a treatment program started. A laser was used on my knees and pain was reduced a whole lot. A back adjustment was completed to set my spine, hips and knees in proper position. My pain level was 10 plus, and about 5% after 4 or 5 treatments. My heart blood flow rate went from 22% to over 50 %. I know chiropractic care got me there.

Now at my 10th visit, I have no pain at all, and has continued to be that was as of today. The staff is the best I have had the privilege to work with, kind, considerate, caring and above all make patients feel like they are family.

I at first believed chiropractic care would not help me with all my pain problems. Well I was strongly misinformed! They did a super job of getting my pain under control and I think helped to eliminate a few of my medicines that were not needed. NOW PAIN FREE! I will continue treatment to stay that way, and anyone who will listen get to a CHIROPRACTOR! I would highly recommend GSHW chiropractic to anyone who wants pain gone and to feel healthy again!

Ben Turner May 2021

Two years ago, I was a patient here with problems with my back. I was well pleased so far with the help I have gotten with the pain in my left knee, right hip and right shoulder here.

Bernice Picerno-Jones   November 2017

I have had 9 treatments (adjustment, laser, and roller bed) thus far and am happy with the results; although temporary. I realize that it took years accumulating my knee and back problems and will require much more treatment to rectify my issues. The family atmosphere at this facility adds to the reason why I will continue treatments. The fact that I have recommended others to come to this facility is my testimony to getting the treatments I need and the success that goes with it.

Elizabeth Sharrett August 2015

While in Virginia for my father-in-law’s funeral, I bent down to my suitcase and ended up on the floor in the most excruciating pain I’ve ever felt. I had to crawl downstairs backwards so my husband could get me into the car to go to a walk-in emergency clinic. The doctor at the clinic told me that the sciatic pain would “get better in six to eight weeks” and the only thing I could do was take some muscle relaxers or narcotic painkillers.  Neither of those was an acceptable option for me.

My family doctor here told me the same thing was about the six to eight weeks recover time and offered to write prescriptions for painkillers.  At the end of the eighth week, I began physical therapy, which was helpful, but I still did not lose the sudden lightening-flash pains between the right shoulder blade and knee- always random and breath-stealing in their intensity.

Two additional medical doctors repeated the same offer for painkillers and the advice was always “get used to the pain; if the sciatic nerve still hurts, there’s no telling how long it may last.”  Twelve and a half years is a long time to hurt.

During my eighth session at Grand Strand Health and Wellness, Dr. Garner performed a manual adjustment on my back. I stood up for the first time in twelve and a half years with neither a dull ache nor any shooting pains in my lower back.  I wept with joy.  I have thanked God every day since for bringing me to Dr. Garner’s chiropractic practice.

Everyone at Grand Strand Health and Wellness is friendly, welcoming, personable, and helpful.  Each procedure – therapy to massage – is explained thoroughly.  Members of this staff make clients feel like they are partners in the quest for health, and they cheer every patient on to a return of full health.  This office demonstrates professionalism at it’s finest! I convinced my husband to have an assessment; he is now a patient with GSH&W.  I have raved about this practice and how much better I feel since becoming a patient here.  I will continue to urge others to come for a visit to see for themselves how much better they can feel using a more natural approach to chiropractic care so they could live in healthy harmony!       

Bettie Davis June 2019

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing a great deal of pain. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing a more positive change with leg pain. The experience with the practice exceeds my expectations, and I did get prompt service. They are one of the best compared to other practices I’ve been to, and I did get what I paid for. I like the way everyone works together, no dislikes. I would recommend this practice. I can see chiropractic benefitting my overall health in the future by much improvement. If somebody I knew hasn’t tried it yet, I would recommend it, because its benefitting me greatly.     

Brenda Barnson February 2019

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing a lot of pain in my knees and lower back. Since starting my treatment my pain in my levels are down and I am walking and standing a whole lot better. I was skeptical at first but now I am glad I took the step towards the treatment. The employees are all great, friendly, and its great to be called by your name from start to you finish your therapy. It is worth the time and effort you put into it. I would recommend this practice to everyone. When your body is aligned and working properly your overall health is better. I would definitely recommend it because it can change your whole outlook on life and your health. I   just love the laser therapy Trina does. She’s Awesome.

Brenda Purvis

Before starting chiropractic care, I was experiencing excruciating pain in my right knee, and had a heel spur on my right foot. Walking or going up and down stairs was very difficult. When I would sit for a long period of time I would feel sharp pain in my knee. I went to a couple of other doctors, was prescribed medications that gave me very little relief. It was depressing. I started chiropractic care at Dr Garner and immediately he pinpointed the problem. He ordered orthodics that were custom made for my feet and started laser treatments and the adjustor. The orthotics are wonderful. My legs and walk are more balanced and I no longer have a heel spur. The laser treatments brought instant relief to the pain in my knee and after a few visits my pain was at minimum. The adjustor is getting my knee back into joint, because I feel a big difference when I walk. I am no longer staggering as I get out of the car, and the pain is at minimum. Overall I feel so much better and I am so glad I found chiropractic care. I feel like I’m getting my life back again!

Charles Holcomb September 27, 2013

Before attending Dr. Garner’s office my left knee was locked up and I could not walk. After laser therapy and adjustments my knee does not hurt and everything seems to be normal. I feel very positive about the treatment I have received.

Cindy Storer December 17, 2013

I had been having trouble walking even a half mile on the beach because the tendons or ligaments in my ankles were constantly swollen and painful. My shoes were also wearing badly, and I was constantly in danger of twisting my knees and ankles. Out of desperation I ordered a pair of the custom orthotic sandals. After a month of constant use, the swelling in my ankles has gone down and I can walk and stand for much longer. I now also have a pair of sandals and two pairs of inserts, and will not wear any shoes without the inserts. Though expensive, they have been worth every penny.

Connie Phillips February 2015

The summer of 2014 I was reading a local newspaper and found how Dr. Garner was using a new technique, and shared it with two of my friends who were experiencing knee and back pain. Both followed up with the info and had good results. While doing yard work, I found myself needing the doctors care – I was experiencing hip, knee and leg pain. I was very happy to get in to see him within days. The staff was very helpful and has a positive attitude. Dr Garner is very informative and explained what my problem was and began working on me without delay. After my first visit, I could feel a very big difference. And after every visit, there was an improvement. I did and will continue to share my experience with others. We were created by a higher power and He leads us to the right source in need. This was my first time using chiropractic and if needed again, I’ll be back. Now symptoms have improved. LOVE IT!!

Cristobal Mendoza March 2015

I am an ex-professional baseball player. I played baseball for 20 years and through all those years my left knee took a lot of abuse. In 1998, I had knee surgery and for the past few years, I have been in a lot of pain during daily activity.

I saw an advertisement in the newspaper for Dr. Christopher D. Garner. I went to see him, and after a thorough consultation and x-rays I was diagnosed with a misaligned left knee and myofascial pain syndrome.

So far, I have had seven therapy sessions. I started to feel better after the third session. I am currently 80% better. I know have a lot less pain and my knee feels stronger. Dr. Garner is not only a great doctor he treats you like family. His entire staff is incredibly nice and attentive throughout all treatment.

I would highly recommend Dr. Garner.

Debbie Cody May 2021

At 50 years old, I never dreamed my freedom of getting up and going would dissipate. Waking up and not being able to walk was scary. I felt like my legs were balloons and would pop if I bent down, tried to cross my legs or even relax. I received a flyer with introductory offer; I said I am going to do this. My first initial visit I was scared of the findings and what was next. Well, here I am today. The staffs made me feel like a priority. They care, they listen and they help. I look forward to coming and learning new ways to encourage activity and work on getting stronger. The staffs that work directly with clients are first class. They know you by name. I am feeling a lot better and am working in my pain levels. Thank to Grand Strand Health and Wellness, I am getting my life back!

Debbie Floyd February 2019

My sister had been urging me for years to see a chiropractor because the one she sees in Batesburg-Leesville (SC) helps her so very much. When my husband showed me the advertisement in the Sun News which explained there is laser therapy available that can help knee pain, I decided it was time to try chiropractic help.  I’m so glad I set up a consultation appointment and followed up with beginning a regiment of treating my knees as well as correcting subluxation of my spine- particularly my neck which had recently been sprained in a fall. Before I even had a treatment, I was impressed with the level of explanation and education provided by Cindy, the patient educator, as well as the general attitude of caring by each and every staff member. 

Never have I had a medical establishment take the time and show the concern to fully explain my condition(s) and compare it to how it should exist–and how it could improve with the proper procedures!! As an educator, I know how much more effective it is for a person to understand WHY something needs to be done, rather than just being told to do it! I came to understand how much using ice packs and performing certain exercises could help me help myself. My body has coped with years-decades- of not being cared for properly so I don’t expect immediate results, BUT I have delighted in small periods of time of lessened pain and even pain-free hours in the 2 1/2 weeks of therapy and adjustments. I am confident that the coming months hold improving health for me – and my husband, who after sitting in on my consultation follow-up, also signed up for a series of care!

Don Stidham February 2015

When my knee problem started I was putting my shoes on and my knee popped. I went to a chiropractor in Ohio and he said my next stop would be surgery. I limped around for awhile, but didn’t trust my knee, so I got a brace for it and it has been on since June 2014. Then Dr. Garner said he could fix it, and as of February 2015 it feels 100% better. I have had the most reliable service and would recommend the service to anybody. I also said I would use two canes before surgery because my wife Jean had a bad experience with surgery.

Doris Watters August 27, 2013

It began in 2008 with a little pinch feeling in my left knee and gradually moved to my right knee. After a year or so the pain became more intense. My family and friends began to notice that I was limping or favoring one side or another. My knees were very painful and the pain moved down my shin. It was hard to walk or stand. About a year ago, my pastor had knee surgery and had difficulty walking. He was referred to a chiropractor and had great results. I was a skeptic at first but after seeing an ad in the newspaper I decided to give it a try. At first I didn’t notice any changes, but after about two or three weeks I noticed I was not limping anymore. It’s been over a month and I am so happy I made that call. Dr. Garner and his staff have made my experience life changing. I tell everyone I know what a difference it has made doing small things like bending, standing for long periods of time, walking, etc. This is something I will continue to do for my overall health. I thank God for this intervention, I’m only sorry I didn’t try chiropractic treatments before now. I didn’t know that knee pain was something a chiropractor handled. I’m free of all pain medications and over the counter supplements. My treatments have exceeded my expectations. I recently found out that Dr. Garner is also my pastor’s Chiropractor.

Dwight Stephens June 2019

I had never been to a chiropractor for treatment but heard about low level laser therapy for knee pain. I signed up for treatment and after 6 weeks of treatment my right knee is pain free. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who is experiencing knee pain. This treat and the people involved far exceed my expectations.  The cost for treatment was well worth it.

Carl Hudson April 2016

Before I started Chiropractic care, I was experiencing very bad pain in both knees. Since starting chiropractic care, I have very little pain. The experience I have had has exceeded my expectation, the service I have had at Dr. Garner’s office has been great. The staff  know their jobs and I go through the visit with little wait. I am more mobile then I have been in several years. I will gladly recommend Dr. Garner to anyone.

Ellen Anderson 9/25/14

I met Dr. Garner through the newspaper advertisement about cold laser treatment.  I previously went to a bone doctor for the pain I have been having in my knee since January.  He wanted to give me shots in the knee; so, I wanted to try this new way with Dr. Garner first.  In the beginning, I didn’t think it was working, but half way through I started to notice that the pain was getting less and less.  One day I was doing my grocery shopping and half way through the store, I stopped and said, “I don’t have any pain!” I finished shopping with NO PAIN!!

I would also like to tell you Dr. Garner’s staff is one of a kind.  They are friendly and know what they are doing. Thank you Dr. Garner and your staff !  Ask me if this works and I will tell you YES IT DOES!

Emily Garcia 2018

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing, heaviness and pain in my knees. I was taking cortisone shots every 3 months and was told that I need surgery. I also had tightness in my middle back and pain from time to time in my lower back, which sometimes necessitated muscle relaxants to alleviate the pain. Since starting regular chiropractic care with laser treatments, I have noticed that I have much better mobility, little or no pain in my knees and muscles. There has been a big improvement in how my back feels as well. I ignored my back pain originally thinking it was age. I even had a physical therapy for a while, but noticed the pain returned soon after completion and I went back to medication. With regular chiropractic care my back feels so much better. I always get cheerfully welcomed when I walk in and offered assistance if it appears I am having trouble checking in with my key card. I am immediately placed in the tracking mode and Paige moves me from service to service, i.e. laser treatments with Trina, (she also massages the knees and muscles), Electrotherapy-TENS machine with Paige and chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Crilley. All staff are very pleasant and prompt. The office is a bit small on space, but they utilize every bit of it well. When I first signed up, I was concerned with the cost as my insurance didn’t cover everything entirely. Considering I don’t have any more pain in my knees can move with more flexibility as well as my ability to climb stairs has improved tremendously, I feel I’m getting my monies

Frank Maundy June 2019

Before I started chiropractic care, I had a lot of pain getting in and out of my car. It’s much better already after about 7 treatments. The staff here is great especially Trina and Dr. Crilley. Mary the receptionist is also nice along with everyone else. Although for my budget the treatments are not cheap, but it’s been worth it, to relieve a lot of pain. I haven’t tried any other method, so I can’t say it’s the best but again it’s helped. I look forward to continuing my program and reaping the rewards.

Gardiner Moore February 2015

Before I started chiropractic care, I was experiencing pain in both knees. After taking shots in both knees for years, the doctor thought it was time for knee replacements. Not sure about having surgery, I saw Dr. Garner’s Ad and decided to try chiropractic services. I was taking up to six acetaminophen a day, and now most days, I don’t take any. Chiropractic far exceeded what I thought I would experience. The expertise of Dr. Garner and his staff got me on my way with more ease. I believe everyone should consider chiropractic services before surgery. I would highly recommend chiropractic and Dr. Garner.

Jan Pender July 30, 2013  

Before I started chiropractic care the level of pain I was experiencing was so intense it was hard to focus on any of the activities I enjoy. In a short period of time my pain was fifty percent improved. My friends have commented on how much better I look and feel.

Since receiving cold laser therapy on my right knee the pain has almost gone away. It does not hurt to walk on it and it is bone on bone. If this continues I won’t need a knee replacement. I have had one on my left knee and treatment on it has eliminated any pain on it.

I continue to improve each week. Chiropractic care has done what my regular doctor could not do. I have learned a lot about why and how chiropractic care works. I would recommend it to anyone! Dr. Garner and his staff are very knowledgeable and caring. The fact I do not have to wait two hours or longer to receive treatment is a big plus.

Joan Sykes September 20, 2013

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

Joe Sapone June 2015

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!

John McStravick   June 2014

When I first started treatment, my left knee pain was so severe I could hardly walk.  After three treatments, I saw a big improvement in my walking.  I thought it was very good!  It continued to improve every week.

I would like to thank Dr. Chris and his staff for their work, for their kindness and for making me feel like family. 

I would recommend this treatment to any friend or family member.

Just a thank you to you all!

Kathleen Anderson June 2018

My 90-Year-old Mother, reported by daughter Susan Payne, is wheel-chair bound. She underwent 24 sessions with DrCrilleyincluding laser therapy. During the sessions, she saw a reduction in her knee pain. Her physical therapist, noted a marked improvement from December to May in her mobility with much less pain. 

Eric Pate January 2022

I came to see Dr. Garner due to knee pain from an old running injury. I had asked Dr. Garner about a referral to an orthopedic doctor for options including possible surgery. He asked me to come to his office for therapy on the knee on trac machine, before going to an orthopedic doctor. After three sessions my knee pain was completely gone and I was able to return to my normal routine running routine. In addition to the knee treatment, I received adjustments via the ProAdjuster to my spine, shoulders, and hips which produced noticeable improvements in my running form and overall improved mobility for just day to day living. I would certainly recommend chiropractic care as a better alternative to surgery or pain medicine.

Jeanette Berry February 2022

My journey began with my painful hips. Three visits a week, has turned into a painless one visit month maintenance. I am now getting treatment on my painful right knee. The knee on trac has reduced the pain to almost pain free after the first treatment, AMAZING! The employees are wonderful, caring and know what they are doing.

Judy Dieterich February 2022

I started going to Grand Strand Health and Wellness in 2020, for my knee. I made up my mind I was not going to have knee surgery. It has helped. They got this machine knee on trac, which stretches your knee. I went two weeks three times weekly. By the end of my two weeks I could see a change in my knee and walking; more normal walking. So between the treatments Dr. Forrest does on my knee and this knee on trac, I could see a change. It is amazing!

Janice Honyotski February 2022

Before I started treatment I was in great pain with my knee all the time. Since treatment my pain has decreased and I’m able to walk a lot better and the pain has decreased a lot. Trina is great with the knee on trac. I can definitely tell the difference. Torie is great with the therapy. She gets a laugh at me being the only one having to use a step stool but I’m so short. The doctors are great and everyone is courteous. Love coming for my treatment!

Janae Davis January 2022

Before seeing Dr. Garner and staff at Grand Strand Health and Wellness I wasn’t able to do a full one hour workout for about a month and a half. My knee and feet pain prevented me from working regularly. After my fourth visit I was able to accomplish a full workout four days a week. The adjustments, knee on trac and other therapies worked wonders for my neck, knees, and feet. I’m grateful for Dr. Garner and his amazing staff! They have truly improved my quality of life!                                  

Linda Coyle – September 2014

Before I started chiropractic care both of my knees were killing me and I was experiencing a lot of pain. My left knee was worse than my right one. I was using a walker to get around and when I went to the store I had to use an electric scooter. I could not walk or sleep because my knees would continuously hurt and that has been going on for two years! One day I saw an ad in the paper for chiropractic care and cold laser treatment. I called and made an appointment with Dr. Garner and his staff. Dr. Garner was great! He explained everything to me including my x-rays, how much it would cost, etc. My x-ray showed that my knees were in poor condition and I was going to need a lot of work if I wanted to walk again. Since my first initial visit, I have been going three times a week to see the doctor. Dr. Garner uses the Pro-Adjuster to work on my back while Cindy uses the cold laser therapy to work on my knees. The first time I had the treatment I felt a huge difference. I started to walk again for the first time without pain. The more appointments I went to the better off I was. I have just started walking without a walker and now I can sleep again! I am so glad I went to see Dr. Garner. The cold laser really does wonders. I did not have hope at all before but now I do and I am thinking more positively! Dr. Garner and his staff really care about their patients and treat you wonderful! I am very happy I chose to go here; I am very pleased with everything they have done for me. I would recommend this office to everyone who has any problems. If I ever need someone for the same problem, I will definitely be back. Dr. Garner and staff will truly help you any way they can!

Linda Frasso November 7, 2013

For many years I have been a chiropractic patient. Not until I saw the handout in the paper about cold laser therapy did I start seeing Dr. Garner. I have had pain in my knees for many years and the medical doctors I have seen have suggested I take medication or cortisone shots, neither of which I wanted to do. When I arrived at Dr. Garner’s office I noticed how professional looking it is and all the wonderful educational material he has. I believe education is an important part of the healing process. His staff is kind, caring, and very knowledgeable. Dr. Garner has an easy way and his smile says he cares and wants to help with the pain. He emits energy to be able to do the chiropractic work he needs to do. After all my cold laser therapy treatments, I have no pain in my knees and the swelling is 90% gone! I do not expect that I will have 20 year old knees but I can walk longer, dance, and I really have more energy. I do have some slight discomfort which I expect when I overdo but I use the ice and am ready to go again! I will continue with my maintenance program prescribed and highly recommend it to anyone with knee pain. I highly recommend chiropractic care for any kind of problems associated with pain. And, Dr. Garner is the one I would send them to. The experience I have had with his office has led me to be more uplifting physically, mentally, and spiritually. Thank you Dr. Garner for all your support and thank you God for answering my prayers through him.

Lorraine Eglington – September 2014

Before I started chiropractic and cold laser therapy, I had been contemplating knee surgery. I was at the point of driving to the store and because of the pain, deciding it wasn’t worth it and going home instead. I saw Dr. Garner’s ad and decided why not try it? To my amazement, within a month and a half I was able to walk longer distances without pain. I am starting to do things that I haven’t done for over a year or more. I went to the driving range and most recently tried some dancing. I’m so thankful to Dr. Garner and his staff for helping me to experience some joy in my lifestyle again. I will definitely keep up my maintenance. I would recommend anyone in pain to give Dr. Garner a chance to better their life.

Margie Cochran Ostrowski       June 2014

Before I saw the newspaper ad for Dr. Garner’s chiropractic office, I was experiencing severe pain in my left knee.  I had appointments with my orthopedic doctor and she recommended 3 “gel” shots for my knee pain.  I wanted to explore other options other than what I had been prescribed. “Gel” shots previously had no positive effect for the pain I had in my other knee.

After seeing Dr. Garner’s ad for a $35 evaluation, I called and made an appointment to see what was involved and also to see if I could benefit from his treatments. Dr. Garner evaluated my condition and found out I was a good candidate for the laser treatment. I felt relief right away after that initial treatment. This exceeded my expectations for relief and I scheduled my cold laser treatments for 3 times a week. I’m very satisfied with the services that have been provided from Dr. Garner and his staff. The entire staff makes me feel very comfortable and appreciated. Dr. Garner is very sincere with the care I receive.

I find that through having these cold laser treatments and physical adjustments, I don’t feel a need to see an orthopedic doctor for my knee. The cost involved is well worth every penny and it is quite affordable as well.

I would recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness and Dr. Garner over any other care that I’ve had from other practices. I tell my friends and neighbors about my success with the cold laser treatments. My pain level initially had been a 10 and now I can say it’s a 1 or 2 on a pain scale.

Mary Allen May 21, 2013

My Experience with knee pain and chiropractic has been very remarkable. Chiropractic has kept me pain free and out of surgery as long as I maintain my treatments.

Mary K. June 25, 2013

After years of lifting weight in my business, my knees became weak and painful and did not recover from rest. Walking long distances over 40 feet became impossible. After my second treatment I noticed substantial improvement in my endurance and range of motion and was pleased to see such an improvement without surgery. I was actually able to walk for two hours straight! I highly recommend Dr. Garner and the services he offers. I look forward to my treatments and enjoy his friendly staff!

Mary Martin August 20, 2013

Before chiropractic care I was experiencing terrible knee pain. I hurt constantly! Since starting chiropractic care I am no longer in such pain. Dr. Garner and his staff were very kind and helpful in every aspect. I would definitely recommend Dr. Garner to anyone suffering from pain and stress.

Mary S. Russell  May 2014

One day in July, thank God, I looked in the newspaper and saw this advertisement about knees. When I first started I was in alot of pain. Since I started chiropractic care, I feel much better. I don’t have to depend on pain medication anymore and I have given up my cane in the name of Jesus. I can walk!  My knees don’t lock up on me anymore!

The services are real good.  Everyone treats me like family. They make me feel at home. You don’t wait a long time.

Everything I started treatment for is doing well. I like everything about Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I would recommend this practice to anyone.  For my health in the future, I will exercise, trust in the Lord and do as Dr. Garner suggest including continuing the laser therapy.

Patricia Paul December 26, 2013

What brought me to chiropractic care is, I was having considerable knee pain in both knees. I had heard about the Cold Laser Treatment and decided to make an appointment and find out if this could help rather than face possible surgery.  From the time I made the appointment and met with Dr. Chris and his staff, a treatment plan was presented and discussed with me in a professional manner.  I also liked the fact your appointments are on time and made to fit your schedule too.  Dr. Chris and Staff put you at ease and explain treatment procedures.  The Cold Laser Treatment certainly has helped.  It took a few additional treatments but now I feel more comfortable and the pain has decreased dramatically.  If I was to compare other exam and treatment from another practitioner, I would choose Chiropractic care again. When someone tells me they are having issues with their back, knees or neck, I recommend them to call Dr. Chris’ office and to speak to his Staff.   Find out how Chiropractic care could be a benefit to your overall lifestyle… I did and the results speak for themselves!

Paul Hopkins February 2015

In 2010, I stepped off a curb and the leader came loose on the left side, of my left knee. I had been in pain since. Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my left knee. Since starting regular care I have not had pain for over three weeks. My experience with Grand Strand Health and Wellness exceeded my expectations. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future. I have recommended chiropractic and this practice because IT WORKS! The adjustments have taken the pain away and are definitely working.

Phil Jezierski May 2016

I was a little skeptical of the ad in the paper that stated they could help with knee pain. I had been to a doctor for about 7 years dealing with arthritis and the loss of cartilage in my knee. After an exam and x-rays they spelled out the treatment for me. In the following days after the first session my knee pain was almost nothing and I could bend my knee to put on my pants. I hadn’t done this without pain for about 5 years! Hoping that the progress will continue and I will no longer have to take Aleve. Thanks Ms. Lacey the Laser!

REGINA DAYS JUNE 2019

When I started coming to Dr. Crilley, I had lots of pain in my knees and I walked all the time with a cane. Since seeing Dr. Crilley, I have a lot less pain and I’m walking without my cane more than before. I even sometimes FORGET it! I even trotted to the bathroom one day and my daughter commented, “You haven’t done that in a long time.” I feel better after each visit and I feel my knees are much more better. Before going to see Dr. Crilley, when I showered I had to sit on a stool, now I don’t use it. My knees are so much better, having less pain, and walking in and out the house without my cane. My mobility is a lot better. I love to dance, I’m dancing again, and I love that!! Dr. Crilley has an interest in me and making me feel better and that is wonderful. This is the best thing that I could have done. Yes I am looking forward to much more improvement, but the improvement I have is awesome. My family is commenting on my dancing again. They can see the progress! My knees improve daily each visit along with my back arms….EVERYTHING. If you have knee pain see Dr .Crilley. It will decrease and you will feel so much better than before. THANK YOU DR. CRILLEY.

Richard Torrey DECEMBER 2019

Before I started care I was in constant pain. I saw two specialists about my knee pain, and couldn’t turn my neck and couldn’t put on my socks or get into my wife’s car without great difficulty.

Since starting care I no longer have knee pain, my neck has improved, and it is easier to get into my wife’s car. All this was accomplished without any jerking and snapping of bones. Little or no pain.

Dr. Sheree Nwanegwo, MD June 2015

I am so grateful to Dr. Chris Garner, and his courteous staff for the improvement in my knees, neck and back pain. I must say I had my doubts since I am a Medical Doctor, but after hurting throughout my body for years, and taking far too many medicines and injections to relieve my pain as well as not wanting to go through anymore surgery, I decided to try a more natural, hands on and non-medication chiropractic approach to my pain. So after seeing an ad in a local newspaper claiming that cold laser therapy could relieve knee pain without medicines or surgery, this did it for me, and this is how I found Dr. Chris, who has been great! My knee pain has diminished so much from chiropractic care that I am able to become much more active, and to be able to work a full day in my office without being in tears and agony by the end of the day. Thanks to Dr. Chris Garner and staff!

Sherry Hutchins January 2018

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my legs, knees, lower back and leg cramps. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing positive changes such as no leg cramp, no back pain, and my knees are much better. I was a bit apprehensive but I have been totally impressed the practice has exceed my expectations, I have received prompt and reliable service. I have only been to one other chiropractor office years ago. This practice does more patient teaching and more modern equipment. I love the roller table and would recommend this practice to anyone. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by helping me prevent damage to my body and improving my overall health. If somebody I knew hasn’t tried it yet, I would recommend it because as a nurse I hate to see people in pain, or addicted to pain medications, by helping relieve pain people will feel better.

Sherry Sutter 2018

I was in such pain and burning with my knees I didn’t know where to turn too. The specialist said no operation. I tried shots they didn’t work. I felt lost, depressed, and I was thinking will I end up in a wheelchair. I found your ad on the internet and said I will try this. I signed up for 30 visits and after the third visit when I was out at a club I noticed the burning in my knees stopped. I couldn’t believe it, then walking out of the club I told my husband to stop. I said I have no more pain in my knees. I truly feel like my life was given back to me. I have been telling everyone about your office. God bless you.

Shirley Campbell    April 3, 2014

   I was experiencing a lot of pain in my left knee. My right knee had been replaced with knee surgery and I didn’t want to go through that again! Reading an ad in the newspaper about cold laser, I decided to try it. I look forward to my appointment to grand Strand health and wellness because the staff was very friendly and helpful. It took about 13 weeks of treatments and I can honestly say the pain in my left knee is gone! I would recommend this practice to anyone suffering with pains and I can say “I did get what I paid for.                              

Susan Gasque February 2019

I first came to Grand Strand Health and Wellness walking with a cane because of a partially torn meniscus in late June 2018. My initial evaluation also showed subluxation of my back involving 3 vertebras. I had laser treatment and adjustments. At first my entire body got very sore but my knee felt better and better after each treatment. The length of time that I felt better continued to increase. After about two weeks of treatment, I had more energy and the stiffness and soreness went away. I began to forget my cane because I felt so well. After about a month I no longer needed a cane and I walked much better. Now I am having Dr. Crilley work on my wrists and hands under my thumb where I have arthritis. The laser has taken the swelling down and reduced the pain significantly. The staff members are also wonderful. They work very well together and are very friendly and helpful. Elizabeth their massage therapist, is wonderful. I have had many massages, but none as diagnostic and therapeutic. She was able to help pinpoint what was going on with my hands.

TONY MALONEY  JULY 2016

After 8-10 years of chronic knee pain, I was put on pain pills (narcotics.) Over these five years, side effects became bad and had to be detoxified off of these medications. The good Lord sent me a flyer in the mail for Grand Strand Health and Wellness.

I made an appointment and WOW what a group of wonderful people! I cannot say enough good things about the staff at Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I can see they really wanted to help me. They are all so professional and love their jobs and I grew to love them all. They took my pain away and gave me my life back. I am happy for the first time in years! I read somewhere that those who help the Lords’ children with physical needs get a special reward in Heaven. May the Lord bless and keep you all!

William E. Cameron  APRIL 2017

I was experiencing knee pain in my right knee, and was dreading the thought of surgery, when I saw the doctor’s ad in the newspaper, stating that the doctor could cure your pain without surgery, I was impressed. After going to the doctor, my knee is pain free!

YOUR RELIEF IS OUR BEST REVIEW

Our goal at Grand Strand Health & Wellness is to help you live a healthier life without pain getting in the way. Here are some patients, just like you that have found relief through our treatments & services.

Alice Stephenson February 2015

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!!

Amy Fancher October 2020

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.

Antonio Sa – July 24, 2014

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!

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.

Fred Brown

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%.

Joanne W. September 8, 2011

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.

Joe Sapone June 2015

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!

John Dietz    APRIL 2017

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!

Judy Malatras   March 12, 2014

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!

Kat McGill – Lillywhite May 2021

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.

LarryNoackApril 2016

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.

Linda Ketron July 28, 2014

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.

BEFORE    

RECORD OF WEIGHT LOSS

AFTER

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.

Cathie Walsh – June 2014

Kathy Summers… What to say about her?  So much to say, so little space. I have been receiving massages from Kathy for awhile now as a compliment to chiropractic services. I have been blessed to be able to receive messages for most of my adult life and am pleased to say that Kathy is the best masseuse that I have ever had. She shines in regards to her professionalism yet she is so down to earth in her personality. I have come to rely on her knowledge in terms of my physical well being as she is always available to my multitude of questions. I love that she is always interested in the latest techniques and looks at the whole person in terms of health. Now, for the obvious: I melt as she is able to relieve stress from my tight muscles. I feel so much better, so much more relaxed since her massages. Aches and pains have decreased. My mind is cleared and my mood is always lifted as I exit the massage. I would and have recommended Kathy to several friends and know that all would benefit from her knowledge of her art and compassion to serve with the highest quality. Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for my massage!

David Earl Shelley – June 2014

My testimony is about the benefits of massage therapy, specifically massage therapist, Kathy Summers.  I have had the occasional massage for feet and back pain for 20 years.  Sure, they all felt good and relaxing but the pain soon came back, usually within hours.  Kathy suggested I have massages on a regular time schedule.  She does not just oil up and rub me down but targets certain vertebra, joints and muscles.  I feel much better after each massage and the physical benefits last much longer.  Having massages on a regular basis has greatly improved my pain and quality of life.  Not only does she cause positive changes in my back, but with her friendly and caring personality, I feel overall good health and happiness.

Elfi Rottenbucher – May 6, 2014

My name is Elfi and I am 74 years old.  I am also an insulin dependent diabetic with arthritis.  I have been under chiropractic care for over 2 years, but by adding massage therapy to the chiropractic care is really a great improvement to my overall feeling better, especially to my legs and neck. I am very pleased with Kathy who gives me an excellent massage treatment.  The staff and Dr. Garner at the Grand Strand Health and Wellness Center are all very professional and courteous.  I am very grateful to all of them.

Elizabeth “Liz” Barber – 5/14/14

Sore muscles from yard work, volunteer work, housework, shopping and even long travel in car or on a plane have taken their toll on my shoulders and back.  Even tension headaches can plague me – but I finally have these under control with regular visits to Dr. Chris and massage therapist, Kathy Summers.  Stress relief and general sense of well being are wonderful side benefits of regular massage.  Relaxation and calmness are Kathy’s goal for each visit and when I leave I am already looking forward to my next visit.  A mini vacation!!

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

Kathy is very compassionate and skilled.  Treating myself to a massage with her once a month is my little luxury.  It is a very relaxing time; more than worth the price; a calm and soothing atmosphere. I absolutely recommend this practice.  It helps in maintaining a well balanced body and benefiting my overall health.  When your body is relaxed and working properly, everything else falls into place.

Iris Dian July 30, 2013   

I started chiropractic care eighty-six years ago when I was six years old. I was very ill – weak anemic with bronchial asthma. Chiropractic turned my poor health around in a hurry. I started to eat – gain strength and enjoy life. I had missed the whole first grade of school. I have seen a few different chiropractors in my time and many around the country. Of all places I have been, Dr. Garner, his staff, and Kathy, his massage therapist are the best I have ever had. I am moving again and I will miss them terribly. I will be back to visit, that is for sure. Chiropractic care was the answer to my parent’s prayer.

Jack Ebright – August 6, 2014

In the early 1970’s I was introduced to the power and importance of massage and physical touch. It’s been my good fortune to have had many professional massages from highly qualified massage therapist, male and female, young and old, deep and intensive, warm and relaxing. I’ve enjoyed them all. Frankly, though, there are differences. Some therapist had great techniques but little attunement to my body. Others have been intuitive but not very knowledgeable of body physiology. When I first met Kathy Summers I was already seeing a well-known local massage therapist who was excellent. I didn’t switch to Kathy because I didn’t love my previous massage therapist but because Kathy is AWESOME. Kathy’s knowledge of physiology is amazing and her understanding of how to apply that knowledge is what sets her apart. She studies your body as she begins her work; she analyzes, hypothesizes, and explores your body’s needs. We see skin; she sees muscles and tendons. We feel discomfort; she feels knots begging to relax. I know when I see Kathy for a massage that she will better understand my physical aches and pains than even I do. She is the best! For the stress relief and healing that she provides I am forever grateful. It is impossible to recommend her more highly.

Jeanette Chichester  June 2014

Before I started massage therapy I was in pain all the time. My pain level is next to zero at this point. I have been going to Dr. Garner’s office for 2 years. 


Kathy (massage therapist) has helped me with my pain.  She always answers any questions that I may have and always recommends different things that help me such as exercise or natural things that I can do to keep all my joints in working order. 


When I first started going to her I had much pain in my lower back, my neck and my shoulders. I sit at a computer all day which causes stress in these areas. After her massage I go home completely relaxed and feel wonderful. I highly recommend a massage with Kathy. She is the most personable and knowledgeable of all the massage therapists I have been to and I have used four others before her. She is the best.

Before massage therapy, I was experiencing pain and stress. I started massage and I can’t believe the difference. My pain is greatly reduced and I feel so much more relaxed and comfortable all the time. I have learned exercise routines to help develop strength and muscle so that I can avert aching and feel better on a daily basis. When I go for massage, I don’t have to wait.  My appointment is prompt and always exceeds my expectations. I have had a little experience with massage before but never as good as this. I feel as if the time is so long and that I’ve gotten much more than I paid for,  in terms of relief and well-being. I would highly recommend Kathy Summers and this practice. I plan to continue for the long term as I know it contributes to my good health! I have recommended this to friends and will continue to do so. Massage has changed my life.

Thirty years ago, I  had my first bout of sciatica. Since that time, I have seen a chiropractor regularly. Massage therapy had been recommended to alleviate the muscle spasms in my neck and shoulders as well as deal with the stress of work (adolescent psychiatric nurse). I never followed up on these recommendations. I always thought massage therapy was a luxury, not something that would give me long lasting relief.

Three years ago I quit smoking. I thought I would treat myself to 6 half hour sessions with Kathy. I had so much relief of muscle spasms (some I didn’t realize I had!), I  have included regular massage therapy in my budget along with chiropractic care. She has improved my flexibility, range of motion and I believe has prevented any acute subluxations or sciatica.  My  degenerative condition and arthritis in my spine will never go away, but Kathy Summers and   Dr. Garner  have kept me relatively pain free. I have been able to continue to golf (4-5x/week). Not only play the game but improve my performance from a 30 handicap, down to a 17 handicap. I truly believe the therapeutic massage was the addition I needed to improve my level of functioning, health and well being. I look forward weekly to my half hour session. It is the best part of my week.

Phyllis Wicker  June 2014

Before I started massage care, I was experiencing swelling in my ankles and legs.  This has been a problem for many years.  After massage, my legs seem lighter and my ankles and feet are much smaller, as the excess fluid has been moved from my legs and ankles.  My shoes seem much larger after a massage!  Most recently, massage has helped the arthritis in my hands.  I am NOT taking Aleve daily.  My left hand is just fine and my right hand is such that I am able to type, write and use my hand almost normally!  After chiropractic care and a massage, I feel so relaxed.  Overall, I feel better since starting massage and chiropractic care. I am able to schedule appointments that are convenient for me.  All of the staff members are courteous and helpful.  I have recommended this practice to several friends and co-workers.

Tom Herzog   June 2014

I experience sciatica, alot of muscle cramps and body stress due to my work and the gym. I have been to many many massage therapists. The massage therapist at this establishment is only 1 of 2 that is outstanding in what she does in my opinion. The care, the privacy and the professionalism that is performed here is outstanding. I have been coming here for several years now and will continue to come back as long as Kathy is the masseuse. Not only do I get a great, relaxing, therapeutic massage but also great advice on stretching and exercises that can help my issues.

Before I started therapeutic massage, I was experiencing tight muscles, cramps, stiffness and overall discomfort in my body especially sciatica nerve and hamstrings. Since starting regular massages, I am more flexible, alot less pain in the sciatic nerve and alot fewer muscle cramps. My service here is always on time and very relaxing. I have received top notch service here. Price is not even a factor. I like the professionalism of the staff and the establishment. I would definitely recommend this practice. Grand Strand Health and Wellness is the best I have experienced in the area.

YOUR RELIEF IS OUR BEST REVIEW

Our goal at Grand Strand Health & Wellness is to help you live a healthier life without pain getting in the way. Here are some patients, just like you that have found relief through our treatments & services.

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.

CHRISTINE MAGLIATO  OCTOBER 2017

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.

YOUR RELIEF IS OUR BEST REVIEW

Our goal at Grand Strand Health & Wellness is to help you live a healthier life without pain getting in the way. Here are some patients, just like you that have found relief through our treatments & services.

Antonia P. Waltz    October 30, 2017

I  had been treated for neuropathy at the office of Dr. Garner, its been very successfully, two weeks into the treatment I was totally relieved of the symptoms like numbness, tingling, burning, in my feet. My experience with the practice met my expectations, the service was prompt and reliable. I like mostly the way you are treated at the office, the girls are friendly, patient and always very positive attitude. I’ll recommend without second thought this practice to anybody in the future. Thank you, thank you for making me feel strong and so well so soon.

Robert McRae March, 2019

      Before I started chiropractic care, I was experiencing swelling in my lower legs, accompanied with what other physicians diagnosed as neuropathy. I was also experiencing routine aches and occasional stabbing pain in my right knee. If that wasn’t enough, my lower back began to ache much more frequently than in the past. After attending one of Dr. Crilley’s informational presentations one evening, I decided to try this different approach; to treat the problems physically, not the pain with medications. Since starting my care, I’m having less pain in my feet and legs, allowing me to sleep more comfortably. I’ve noticed the return of some normal sensations in my feet, too; not so much numbness. My knee still has its moments, but not as frequently and not as intense as before I began adjustments. My lower back is improving gradually as well. I am continually impressed with how efficiently the staff moves the myriad of patients through their treatments, and remembers each and every one’s name. I am excited to continue my treatments and I’m confident that Dr. Crilley and his staff will do everything they can to help me return to good health! I highly recommend exploring the chiropractic approach to a healthy life, as opposed to popping pills to mask your body’s problems. There’s no excuse, and there’s nothing to lose taking that first step at Grand Strand Health & Wellness!

Bruce Lake August 2018

In July I attended an educational diabetes presentation sponsored by Grand Strand Health and Wellness. Dr. Crilley did a fine job explaining important nutritional aspects of diabetes care and he also mentioned that they had laser treatments and a “rebuilder” in the office. His description sounded like it might help with the neuropathy I have experience in my feet and toes. (I have had type 2 diabetes for 20+ years.)

                Was I skeptical? Yes, I guess that’s just my nature…but my initial visit to the office showed me how much the office staff cares about each patient. After just 5 weeks of laser and rebuilder treatments I noticed marked improvement in my feet. I no longer felt like I had an anvil on my toes and the feeling was returning to my feet. My biggest surprise was completely unexpected. In 2004 I sprained my right foot and it never healed properly. For 14 years, every step was painful unless I walked with the pressure on the outside of that foot. I had dealt with the discomfort for so long that I just lived with it and failed to even mention it to the doctor during my initial visit. If it had not healed in all that time I figured it never would.                 A month after starting treatment I realized that my right foot no longer hurt when I walked normally. I feel that the treatments have made a big improvement with my neuropathy issues and a 90 to 95 percent reduction of the pain on the instep of my right foot. Personally I highly recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness. Do you have doubts like I did? Just put those doubts aside and don’t hesitate to visit their office to see the information they have available in the office and check out the many treatments and chiropractic services they provide. I am glad that I did!!

Gerry Baumgartner February 2019

When I first began neuropathy treatment at the Grand Strand Health and Wellness center, I had pain and numbness in both feet to the extent that I had trouble walking. Which affected my posture and I was not able to stand up straight. After my third treatment the numbness subsided, and the pain was minimal. My posture improved and the pain subsided tremendously over the next few sessions. I was walking almost normal again! I am amazed at the results I have had and wished I had not waited all this time when help was available to me all along. I found Dr. Garner, Dr. Crilley and all the staff very professional and loving in every step we have taken. I am half way through my care plan and would recommend it to anyone who has problems.

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.

I attended a free seminar with friends just to see what was available because I had similar treatments 3 years ago, but after 1 year they didn’t work. Well after a nice free lunch and seminar I decided to give this pain group a try. The pain in my feet at times was unbearable.

                After 1 month of treatments I have some really good days where as before I had none. Pain seems to have moved, isn’t as sharp, and not as frequent. I can actually sit and watch TV without saying “OUCH” every few minutes and my wife saying “WHAT, WHAT, WHAT!”

                By nature I am very fishy, questioning, and doubting; so I came into this office with a “OK I’m here, Help Me” attitude. Well shut my mouth. They did! The employees are wonderful, caring, friendly, and hard working to better the business and make customers comfortable and feel like a friend rather than a number. If this treatment continues to help me, I may be able to do The Twist again someday. For all you youngsters, that’s a dance.                 Just a quick thumbs up for all the workers who amaze me by their knowledge as to what each person needs next and does it without being told. Talk about A+ for the business. WOW!!! And Dr. Crilley you are great. You make me comfortable and help my pain. Except for a million dollars, who could ask for more?! And if you do hurt me I’ll deal with it because I read your bio… And I didn’t forget Dr.Garner. A great office takes a great leader and I know you are on top of everything. I wish I had the energy of everyone in the office. And just one more thing…I WILL RING THAT BELL!!!!

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

John Williams February 2015

I went to Dr. Gardner after reading an advertisement in the newspaper offering a complete evaluation of overall and specific health problems where chiropractic care could correct the problems or offer pain relief without the use of medications. I have been a patient of chiropractors for many years and firmly believe in the services and strategies that are used for these purposes and overall general health.

I developed pretty severe pain on the right side of my right foot due to a severe sports injury 40 years ago. Although surgery was performed at that time, I was experiencing quite severe burning and tingling on the outside of my foot so I thought the cold laser treatment would be beneficial.

The cold laser treatment, electrical stimulation and the adjustments to my foot and knees by Dr. Garner have brought tremendous relief from the pain. I am also a big fan of the Pro Adjuster. It makes sense to make the adjustments in a less radical fashion and keep the spine properly aligned and I have been very pleased with the results. I will continue to be a patient of Dr. Garner and will receive regularly scheduled care which includes all of the available services. I take advantage of all of the services Dr Garner offers including physical massage, therapy, laser and electrical stimulation. Because this is a complete, comprehensive approach combined with proper nutrition and exercise, I know that I will be able to continue to enjoy the physical activities that I enjoy – PAIN FREE – as I continue to age thanks to this caring doctor and his equally caring staff.

Joyice Waters  June 2019

I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes in 2010. I thought oh well I don’t really have diabetes so just did nothing at that time. It continued to get worse until I had full blown type 2 diabetes and had to start taking medication for it and watching what I ate. I had to give up some of my favorite foods. After a while I started noticing a feeling of numbness and burning in my feet. Then one day my doctor told me that I had an abnormal gait. Then I realized that I had diabetic neuropathy. I read everything I came across about neuropathy. But nothing told me what to do about it. I just figured I had to live with it. It would wake me up from a sound sleep burning so bad that I would look at my feet and think I was going to see flames. I would have to take my feet from under the sheets in order to get them to stop burning. As I said I read anything and everything I could read,. As most people do.  I would scroll through Facebook postings and read whatever was there about neuropathy. One day I came across a posting of Dr. Garners. He was offering a special to come have x-rays done and talk to his staff. I responded to the posting. It was just a matter of minutes and my phone rang and it was someone from his office. She was a very nice person and immediately set me up with an appointment.

When I walked in the door to the office I was cheerfully greeted with a great big hello and smiling faces. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. It was like visiting good friends and family. I have been going here for several weeks now and I get the same treatment every time I walk in. when I am out for a while, I actually miss not seeing them.  I would definitely recommend them to any one that needs a good chiropractor. Just wish I had heard about them a lot sooner. I just love all the people that I come in contact with on each of my visits. They are the best!!

Thank you for your prompt attention and all that you have done.

Karen Osterhuber     October 9, 2012

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing severe pain in my right hip running down my leg and numbness in my foot. I was also on medication and received injections for the pain. I found out that the vertebral subluxation complex in my lower back was putting pressure on the sciatic nerve. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing the following positive changes that the pain is now gone and the daily back pain I under control. I can see chiropractic benefiting my overall health in the future by maintaining relief. If somebody I knew hasn’t tried it yet, I would recommend it because I have received amazing success. Dr. Garner and his staff show that they truly care for their patients in a very professional way.

Kathy Dye December 2016

In April 2015, after 4 years of being diagnosed with neuropathy in my feet due to Lyme’s disease, I contacted Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I had dealt with my podiatrist, a neurologist, taken various prescriptions and still had incredible pain and very few answers to my questions. After my initial visit and then the proceeding follow-up, I had the first hope of help in those 4 years. I started treatments with Cold Laser along with Re-Builder and within weeks was able to walk without having to drag either foot. This was incredible; as just a few weeks before, I would get out of my vehicle and have to stand for minutes before I could begin to walk. I have been visiting for 6 months now and although my feet have their “days”, I would have never dreamed I could have come this far. Dr. Garner and his staff are like family. From the very beginning, you would walk in the office and everyone knows your name. Every visit there is concern for your pain level. There is so much knowledge to be gained by watching the videos and talking to this well- educated, friendly staff. I would and do recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness to everyone I can!!

Laura Doolittle June 2019

I tried the Wellness Center as a last resort. My family doctor did not encourage me but my neuropathy was debilitating and was getting worse. When I came here, I was surrounded by kindness, caring and encouragement. My improvement is slow but it is definitely happening. I no longer drive because my feet are too numb but after a few months here, the numbness is subsiding. People say I am walking better and I can walk a short distance without my cane!!!! Not only is the Wellness Center helping me physically, it has giving me hope. When I think of where I was vs where I am now, it’s hard not to believe in miracles.

Lois Dalgliesh June 2015

Numbness, tingling and pain in my feet and legs had been interfering with my sleep. I saw the ad regarding the cold laser treatment for neuropathy and decided to give it a try.

After a few visits with Rachael, the pain and numbness in my feet has practically disappeared. This has been worth it! The staff is very good!

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.

Pam Kidder February 2020

I have had pain in my lower back for DECADES and DECADES!! I had my first PEMF treatment and to my utter amazement, the pain was gone. I will continue the PEMF treatments forever. I am grateful this treatment is available to me!!!

Patrick McLear April 2016

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

Rho Anderson DECEMBER 2019

PEMF has been most beneficial for me. I’d lost the ability to stand on one leg and had difficulty walking without stumbling, even though I wasn’t experiencing dizziness. Foot and leg pains were nearly intolerable. Driving had become difficult. Since treatment began the difficulties have disappeared and the pains are minimal. I look forward to continuing treatments, knowing that the light remaining problems will be dealt with. I’ve been most pleased with the treatment and care I’ve found here. The staff are the most caring and friendly I’ve encountered in any practice. I’m grateful that Dr. Crilley continues to do research on neuropathy and brings new treatments to his patients. The level of education provided here is exceptional. I have recommended his services and regret that people haven’t tried them.

Robert Pagano January 3, 2014

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

Shirley Meader May 28, 2013

Before starting chiropractic care I was having sharp pains in my toes and on the balls of my feet as well as numbness in my toes and burning on the bottom of my feet.

The numbness is now minor, the burning is gone, and the sharp pains have disappeared.

Prior to this treatment, I went to a neurologist and podiatrist but nothing they did helped. Dr. Garner is the best!

Kate Buscher  APRIL 2017

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

Kim Tripp January 2022

Before I received chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my Achilles on left foot and bilateral plantar fasciitis in my feet. I started getting adjustments in my feet/ankles and along with that I received graston (adhesion breakers) with Trina, life changers. Prior to all this I was unable to walk without pain. Just a few weeks started with this group and I’m up to six miles so far walking again. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done so far!!

Jeanne Fletcher July 2020

I have a metal rod in my second toe on my right foot from surgery done about ten years ago. The doctor was also supposed to align my big toe which has a bunion, but decided I should return a different time for that procedure. He did fix the hammertoe with the metal rod as originally discussed.

I have what my birth doctor told my mom “frog toes” as they curl somewhat under each other (better to grip for climbing trees). Since my second toe now straight and stationary, this has caused me discomfort with my third toe wanting to go under the second toe. I tried to fix the problem with some toe gels, but that seemed to cause bruising on the top of my foot radiating near toe wo and three.

When I came for a regular session with Dr. Crilley and saw the advertisement for the Pro-Soft 360, I requested we try it on my sore foot. The pain was mostly gone the first time the Pro-Soft was used on my foot. After the six treatments, my feet felt great. I still have a bunion on my right foot, my third toe still curls under, but I know what can be done should I have pain again in that foot.

Laura Doolittle July 2020

Before beginning Pro-Soft treatment, my knee was swollen to almost twice it’s normal size & was painful when I put my weight on it. I also had a lot of pain below my knee, radiating from knee to ankle. Theses pains often wake me up at night. After 12 treatments, my knee is close to normal size & my knee pain has lessened somewhat. The pains no longer wake me at night. I am encouraged by the progress and plan on taking another 12 treatments.

Bonnie Parker  November 2017

I began my treatment with Grand Strand Health and Wellness September 2017. I have seen a significant improvement in the sciatica nerve in the back of my legs. The staff is very friendly and tries to get you to the treatment rooms in a speedy and orderly manner. The assistant Trina always makes sure I am comfortable and receive the best of care. I would highly recommend this office to any friend or relative.

Carol Ann Smith October 2021

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing lower back pain and sciatica pain down both sides of my legs. After two weeks of Decompression and Laser treatments I feel better. My pain in my legs has pretty much subsided and my lower back pain has also decreased. I am able to get back to walking 2 miles without pain. When I come to my appointment Trina is ready for me. She is very professional and very polite. I had gone to two other chiropractors before coming here…but were not successful. At first I thought they were just “another one of those”, but I was wrong. They go out of their way to get you where you should be. I recommend it for everybody. I drive from North Myrtle Beach three times a week, which if it didn’t work, I wouldn’t do it!

Chuck Rhodes

As a long time sufferer of sciatica, I’d grown used to the on-again, off-again pain in my lower back and left side. When my wife and I saw the Grand Strand Health and Wellness ad in the paper, we decided to check it out, since she, too, had developed a lot of knee pain during the past year. Since we were short on time here, we were prescribed an accelerated schedule of treatments (3 per week).  The staff quickly became like family and administered treatments, always with good attitudes. We’re now about ⅔ of the way through the treatments and while not totally cured yet, are optimistic that the end result will be good. After all, it took us 80+ years to develop these ailments. Overnight cures are extremely rare.

Ed Roth August 2018

Before starting chiropractic care I could not walk far before I had extreme pain from hip to down my leg. Since I started 1 month ago, I can walk better without pain. Everyone “Beatrina, Jimmy, Paige” have all been very nice and helpful. I was hesitant before I started but now I wish I had started sooner. So far things have gone well, and I hope it continues.

Frances F. Phillips

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

Gail Marchesa February 2018

For a lot of  years people said to go to a chiropractor. I had pain in my back to the point when I walk the pain went right down my leg. My foot was always in pain. Since coming here I have been walking with no leg pain, and my foot feels much better. I also needed to do something for pain in my shoulders from my bra straps. All in all I feel better!

Gloria Miliote February 2015

Previously, I had been going for pain management injections in my back for my sciatic nerve problems which had only helped slightly. I had never gone to a chiropractor before but Dr. Garner was highly recommended to me. It has been an enlightening experience. The pain in my hips and the muscles surrounding them is considerably less severe and my flexibility has returned after 2 years of stiffness, soreness and pain. I couldn’t be more pleased with my treatment. I have already recommended a neighbor. Thank you Dr. Garner!

Jacqueline Keenan May 30, 2013

I am not being melodramatic when I say that I was practically crawling to my first appointment with Dr. Garner. The pain in my left leg, running from my hip to my ankle, was excruciating.

What first impressed me was the speed in which a determination was made as to whether chiropractic care could help my particular problem. (It could and it has!) Next was the genuine caring of not just Dr. Garner, but all the staff at Grand Strand Health and Wellness, and last, but not least, the strict adherence to appointment times. I have never experienced chiropractic care and am delighted that my first experience was with the best! I am now walking and the intense pain I was suffering has diminished substantially. On a scale of 1-10, Dr. Garner and Grand Strand deserve an 11. I would recommend them unhesitatingly.

Jane Hallos

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

Jannette Forman    June 16, 2014

When I first came to the office I had lower back pain and pains going down my right leg.  I was very skeptical about whether Dr. Garner’s treatment of running a pulsating wand/instrument down my back was really going to help me.  However, after about 3 to 4 weeks with visits 3 times a week, I had very little pain in my back or pain in my right leg.  I continued the visits and now I am down to 1 visit a week and haven’t had pain in my back or leg for weeks.

Dr. Garner and his staff are very pleasant and professional.  They make you feel that you are important to them and they are never too busy to take the time to answer your questions. I would recommend Dr. Garner’s practice to anyone seeking relief from back or muscle pain.  It worked to relieve my pain so I know it will work for others too.

Kathryn Nichols August 1, 2013

In November 2012, I began having severe lower back pain and leg pain, so severe that I had to hold on to furniture to walk or stand. I also had to use a walking cane. I first saw an orthopedic doctor and was diagnosed with sciatica and no plan of treatment was offered. My family physician referred me to a pain specialist- after several rounds of treatment (epidurals) – I experienced minimal relief. I learned from another chiropractor of Dr. Garner and since I have been under his care my pain has diminished considerably. I would recommend Dr. Garner to anyone who is experiencing any type of back, leg, or knee pain.

Marilyn Maracich October 31, 2013

This is the first time I have ever been to a chiropractor. I have been experiencing back pain especially in my sciatic nerve. Dr. Garner has been working to ease that nerve pain. It has been helping me greatly. The service was very prompt and the girls in the office were very accommodating.  I feel that Dr. Garner is doing a great job in getting me to feel better. I would recommend Dr. Garner to anyone!

Maryanne Robinson     July 7, 2012

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my low back that was radiating down my right leg. Since starting regular chiropractic care I’m experiencing the following positive change of total elimination of back pain. I have not experienced pain when awaking in the morning or after a long day of doing massages. 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 I am now a firm believer of chiropractic care and Dr. Garner has an excellent staff.

Maryanne Robinson May 30, 2013

I had the blessing of meeting Dr. Garner at Pepper Geddings Health Fair on Saturday, January 7. He was referred to me by one of my colleagues, Lori Young. I was experiencing pain in my low back that was radiating down my right leg. Since having regular treatments with Dr. Garner, my pain has totally been eliminated! I have not experienced pain when waking in the morning or after a long day of doing massages. Dr. Garner and his excellent staff are so kind and always willing to answer any questions. I am now a firm believer in chiropractic care and have been referring Dr. Garner to my clients!

May Jackson DECEMBER 2019

I had pain in my lower back and down my left leg for many years. When I started receiving regular treatments at Grand Strand Health and Wellness I was surprised at my improvement, now I’m pain free in these areas. While living in another state I had received chiropractic services, but it wasn’t the same type. The ProAdjuster is a definite improvement. The staff is always friendly and informative. I receive even more pain relief when getting a massage every few weeks. I will always recommend the Grand Strand Health and Wellness to my friends and family.

Sandra Hardin March 2015

For many, many years my family and I have experienced the wonderful health results of using chiropractic care. After moving to the beach area, I began to experience symptoms of sciatica and neuropathy that continued to slowly grow worse. I chose Dr. Chris Garner to be the chiropractor to correct my physical problem. He and his staff are caring, friendly, and intelligent individuals who are well trained to treat my problems. The chiropractic adjustments (including the Pro Adjuster) and all of the modalities being used to treat me are working. I am especially pleased with the cold laser therapy that is removing the numbness in my leg, and fast! My back pain has been dramatically reduced from around an 8 to a 3 – and I am only halfway through my treatment plan! The office environment is modern, clean, friendly, warm, prompt and affordable. I expect a full recovery from my problems and will continue to do follow-up visits. I highly recommend Dr. Chris Garner to anyone with physical problems.

Tammy Lewis May 30, 2013

Before I started chiropractic care, I was experiencing sharp pain in my right thigh and couldn’t walk or sit very long without extreme pain. Since starting chiropractic care, I am pain free and can walk longer distances and when sitting, I’ve noticed my posture has improved. Chiropractic care has really met my expectations. I was relieved a great deal after my first appointment and have improved 100% throughout my initial weeks of therapy.  Insurance covers the visits and I have to pay a small co-pay which is only ten dollars a visit. I highly recommend Dr. Garner and the wonderful care I have received and I have a new lease on life.

Virginia Aull February 2017

I began using the chiropractic wellness care in December 2016 due to pain in my right groin area, intermittent pain in my right ankle which was broken at age seventeen due to an ice skating fall. Now in February after more that fifteen visits during which I received three procedures per visit my ankle is 100% improved and my groin is 75% improved. I actually enjoy and look forward to my sessions with the wellness program and enjoy the positive and pleasant environment there.

Vito Pizzariello June 25, 2013

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in my lower back and down my right leg. The pain in my lower back has eased and we are working on the pain in my leg. This practice exceeded my expectations. It was very different from my previous chiropractor. The service from the office staff as well as Dr. Chris has been great! I certainly got my money’s worth and did recommend Dr. Chris to a friend. I really like the techniques that Dr. Chris uses. What I learned from Dr. Chris’ videos and 50 Minutes to Wellness Workshop will really help me in the future. I would recommend Dr. Chris and his practice because it worked for me and I hope it would work for them!

William Keener May 28, 2013

Before I started chiropractic care I was having a lot of lower back pain that would go down to my knees. I was very skeptical and had my doubts if the pain would ever go away but after a few visits the pain was gone. I am a true believer that chiropractic care does work and I will recommend this practice to everyone.

AdeneFrizzell May 2014

I was doing a little touch up cleaning in our home and without warning I had an excruciating pain in my shoulder. I told my husband I needed to see a doctor and he said you need a chiropractor. Being new to the area we had no idea where to find one. I truly believe it was by divine intervention we saw Dr. Garner’s chiropractic sign-pulled in- parked and the rest of the story is all well and good. After seeing Dr. Garner, I felt no more pain. I have continued to see Dr. Garner for routine chiropractic care because I want to stay fit and active, after all I’m only in my seventy’s.

If you have not tried chiropractic care I recommend you make an appointment with Dr. Garner today. He and his staffare very dedicated to their profession. They were very pleasant and so helpful from the beginning. Everything done by Dr. Garner and his staff was way above average.

My body and mind have benefitted tremendously. Make your appointment today. You too can feel like a whole new person. Don’t wait. See Dr. Chris Garner today!

Barbara Martin April 2015

Way back in December of 2007, I took a bad fall outside Waccamaw Community Hospital. As hard as it is to believe, I broke both of my arms. The right one had only one break, but the left one was broken in 2 places at the shoulder. I was immobile for 6 weeks while it healed. The right one was back to normal at the end of 6 weeks. The left one never healed. My left arm was basically not useable. I could not raise it above my waist.

I actually believed that I would be this way forever. Then “EUREKA!” Dr. Christopher D. Garner came into my life. I was impressed with his ad in the Sun News entitled “Why haven’t people with shoulder pain been told these facts?” I had at least 5 of the shoulder maladies listed.

I called the office and spoke to a very friendly lady. She made me an appointment, and when I arrived at the office, I was greeted by a very welcoming employee, which is a good indication that the office is filled with happy personnel.

I felt like I made the correct decision to go see him and his staff. Dr. Garner came into the room and was so kind, compassionate and knowledgeable; he put me completely at ease. But the best outcome of the month I have been going is how much better my frozen shoulder has become. I actually washed my hair using my left arm; I had not done that in almost 8 years!

Each visit consists of cold laser therapy, pro-adjustment, and electrical stimulation for pain management. When you leave you feel hopeful and so much better. Regardless of the cost, which is minimal, I will continue to see Dr. Garner for as long as I can to maintain the best possible health.

Billy Hester February 2019

January 2000, I was in a automobile accident that caused damage to my right shoulder. The past nineteen years I have been unable to sleep on my right side of my body. Sleeping on my right arm would cause it to go numb and take hours for my right arm to return to normal. During the past nineteen years I worked as a mail carrier with a thirty -five-pound mail bag on my right shoulder which added to pain and discomfort. I am very appreciative of Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I learned for the first time in my life the importance of chiropractic care and wellness for a better quality of life. Thanks to Dr. Garner, Dr. Crilley and their outstanding staff. Finally, in February 2019 I am “pain free” and sleeping on my right side of my body! Chiropractic care will now be a part of my lifestyle. Thank you all for your great work and services!!

Robert Lewis July 2015

Before I started chiropractic care, I was hurting from a shoulder injury and was in pain. I saw the ad in the newspaper and called for an appointment. That is how I met Dr. Garner and his wonderful crew.

On my first visit I was not sure what to expect, for this would be my first visit with a chiropractic Dr.

That first visit was enough to make me return for more treatments. The staff was very informative and very pleasant. On that first visit they took at least an hour to go over what I could expect and covered what my insurance would cover and what my expense would be. This was very helpful in making my decision to return and to continue treatments.

After about six visits my arm is much better and I can almost use it normally.

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

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

As a patient, when you have a setback you would naturally think that what happened could be the fault of the Doctor or his staff. Don’t think that until you are sure that you have been doing everything that you are supposed to be doing to help with the treatment. It makes things a little harder to get the problem taken care of. I have been guilty of this and I have found that I have to get back with the program and get things done. I also noticed a drop in my blood sugar. It has been lower overall, and has dropped as much as 50 points!

Davina Cowdrick  April 2015

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

Diane Billings January 2022

Within the last ten years I have had two rotator cuff surgeries and been through months of physical therapy which left me experiencing constant, sharp, incapacitating pain in my shoulders and bicep muscles. I was to the point that I thought I was going to have to live with this the rest of my life. Then I went to the Blue Crab Festival and came upon the booth set up by Grand Strand Health and Wellness and listened to what they had to offer. I thought, hey why not! Let me tell you this was a gift from God. I went in for my consultation and x-ray just two days later and walked into the friendliest and efficient medical facility I have ever been in. Everyone was so attentive and super nice and they continue to be each and every time I come in for treatment. I had absolutely no idea what a chiropractor actually did or could do, as I had never been to one before, and within two weeks I was feelings so much relief. While I am not 100% pain free yet I feel confident that by continuing the treatment plan I will be sooner or later. I would not only recommend chiropractic treatment for healing but I would definitely recommend this particular practice. They work together as a team and treat each patient like a family member. Thank you God for leading me to this wonderful group of healing professional!

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

I started this journey back in May 2017. I have a partially torn radiator cuff in my left shoulder. My husband was reading the news paper one day and passed a section to me to read. This noted “Why haven’t people with shoulder pain been told these facts?” I had already gone to an orthopedic doctor, had physical therapy, and given cortisone shots twice. I am now trying to prevent myself from having surgery. So I called and discussed my issues with Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I was given an appointment to come in for x-rays and then a follow up for a plan to help me. So I started MLS laser and adjustments with them three times weekly. At this time I no longer have the pain that I started out with. My pain level in the beginning was between a five and six and now is a level one or two. Also my mobility has come so far. So at this time I would like to give a great big thumbs up to Grand Strand Health and Wellness. Not only have I been helped medically but have gained a family. I cannot praise them enough for their knowledge, friendliness, and organization. May God bless each of you for not only being there for me but my husband as well.

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.

Hal Sealy February 2015

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

Joanne Knable July 7, 2014

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

Kory Hottenstein April 2015

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

Laiken Casillo NOVEMBER 2019

I started chiropractic care because I’ve been involved in a car accident and dislocated my shoulder. I was expecting just to be told I needed surgery but as soon as I walked in the Grand Strand Health and Wellness Center the staff made me feel like family and did everything possible to make sure I was comfortable and wouldn’t have to get surgery. My shoulder hasn’t felt this god in a while, and hasn’t dislocated again since I’ve been under your care. Since being under chiropractic care I’ve been sleeping better, and I rarely ever get headaches compared to getting them every other day!

Louise Garcia August 11, 2017

Before I started chiropractic care at Grand Strand Health and Wellness, I suffered severe pain in my shoulders and lower back. I was told I needed a shoulder replacement. After just three weeks of care, my pain had been reduced greatly and my range of motion has greatly improved. The staff goes beyond and above to make me comfortable and make my appointment times convenient for me. Dr. Crilley is very competent and caring toward my needs for recovery. I would tell anyone who has back, neck, or any joint pain and also generalized bodily malfunctions to come to Grand Strand Health and Wellness for chiropractic care. It is outstanding and like no other practice I have gone to.

Marge Healy April 2016

I knew I needed help when I was becoming more and more dependent on my husband to assist with household chores. Simple tasks caused pain. I couldn’t put on or remove a jacket without help and dressing was a challenge. I had trouble sleeping related to the pain in my arms.

I had been diagnosed with frozen shoulders and arthritis. I thought surgery was my only option until I read Dr. Garner’s advertisement in the Sun News. I had nothing to lose, so I made an appointment for an evaluation. Dr. Garner reviewed my x-rays and physical limitations to determine if he could help me with cold laser.

I truly appreciated the patient education provided to explain treatments and procedures. The office is run efficiently and the staff is friendly and courteous. They are very helpful and patient.

After about two weeks of treatments the improvement in my condition was remarkable. The range of motion in my shoulders had increased dramatically. I can reach for things with little or no pain. I have no trouble dressing and taking of my jacket is a breeze! I am able to move easily and sleep without waking up because of pain. Before undergoing an invasive, painful procedure, I would strongly recommend that you visit Dr. Garner. My only regret is that I didn’t know about this option sooner!

Marsha Wolford 2018

I started going to Grand Strand Health and Wellness for shoulder pain and discovered I was getting other benefits as well. My lower back feels great and my energy level has increased. I was impressed with the new technology. Going to the chiropractor now is a pleasant experience, Dr. Crilley has been great as well as the whole staff. I would highly recommend this practice as I believe it would benefit everyone.

Michael J Bourque Sr. August 1, 2013

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

Minnie McPhillips March 2017

Before I started chiropractic care I was experiencing pain in both my shoulders when I reached back or put my shirt on! Being half way through my treatment, I can honestly say that I can feel improvement. The massages are simply wonderful! The entire staff is friendly and makes you feel comfortable! Highly recommend this chiropractic care if you are experiencing any kind of pain!

Nell Hester March 2019

Before I started my weekly treatment with my chiropractor, I was experiencing pain in my right shoulder. The pain was so severe I couldn’t raise my right arm above my head, making it difficult to do daily tasks such as brushing my hair and getting dress. I finally decided to go see an orthopedic. He ordered an MRI to see what damage had been done. I was told that I would need an operation on my shoulder in my near future. I knew at that moment that I did not want surgery of any kind. My husband had heard about laser therapy, so we found Grand Strand Health and Wellness. We called for an appointment, to our surprise we were able to get in an appointment right away. The first visit was really informative. The office manager (Cindy) took her time to explain and go over everything that we needed to know, she was very thorough. Before we left, we were given an ice pack treatment on our shoulder. My shoulder felt better right away. We were put on a weekly schedule for laser therapy. Every visit left us feeling better than the last one. I would truly recommend coming to Grand Strand Health and Wellness Center to everyone before under going surgery!

Purvi Bhatt  November 2017

I had an accident one year before on August, was treated from bone and joint in Charlotte, NC. But never got as better, I should. So I started getting chiropractic services here after I moved to SC. I am way better than before. No more right shoulder problem left or knees too and back pain also getting so better. All staff are very friendly and so nice. I like the massage therapist too. All over good services.

Richard Barnhorst April 2016

After 9 months of shoulder pain, an MRI revealed a rotator cuff tear, not a complete tear. The surgeon said the operation would correct the problem with 6 months rehabilitation. Dr. Garner suggested MLS Laser Therapy, before any operation, 12 treatments over 4 weeks. After about 7 treatments the pain was almost gone and was able to sleep. After the 12th treatment my shoulder is pain free most of the time. Best thing is no pain when I sleep, it is almost 2 months after my last treatment and the shoulder is still good and no operation.

Sal Lorenzo  August 2018

Before I started chiropractic care I was having long term knee, and shoulder pain. Occasionally my lower back would hurt and sometimes lock. It was hard for me to take long walks and lift my arm above my head or behind my back because of the pain. Since my treatments I have noticed a big improvement. Not only do I take long walks but I even run on the treadmill. I can lift my arm with little or no pain in my shoulder and can almost raise it behind my back. My lower back has no pain at all. You definitely get what you pay for. Not only do you receive excellent treatment but the office staff goes above and beyond to  make sure you feel comfortable. You don’t have to wait very long but the few times that you have to wait didn’t really matter because everyone is very friendly and at peace. I love the informative info that they show on the screens such as nutrition, neck paint, etc. I also like the fact that they put pictures of the staff and their families. You really feel at home there instead of being in an office. I highly recommend this office and the care that you get to anyone who has an issue with back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, etc. This office will help in a positive holistic approach. I will continue my care for as long as needed because I feel it will benefit my health and I can live a pain free life.

TIM BUSHAW MAY 2018

I was playing softball several years ago, and I was ran into on my right shoulder pushing the ball up in the socket. It ended my playing career. I read an article in the paper that said this facility may be able to make the pain in my shoulder go away. So I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I made that decision because only after a few appointments my shoulder is feeling so much better. Thanks to Dr. Crilley and to Trina, the laser tech. They both have been the best! A great staff; very friendly and they take great care of their patients.

Vicki Justice October 2015

I have had a problem with Chronic Sinus Infections for more than 30 years. I have had 3 surgeries and a lot of antibiotics Nothing helped my Sinus! Dr. Garner suggested that I started using Local Honey to my coffee every morning to fight the local allergens from our area. He uses his Pro- adjuster on my sinus area. My breathing and sinuses have greatly improved. I would recommend this therapy to anyone with chronic sinus problems.

Brenda Lorenzo   September 2018

I recently moved to Garden City from Dunkirk N.Y. and I had been going to a chiropractor there. I had asked him to research a place for me to go to continue treatment and he recommended Grand Strand Health and Wellness. I thank the Lord that he found this facility for me. I have had a bad back for many years. My ribs would pop out of place and it would hurt to breathe. My neck would get sore and I would get headaches. Since I have been receiving treatments my pain has almost disappeared. I can breathe better and no more headaches. The one thing that surprised me though was the fact that I have bad sinuses and TMJ and they even treat these conditions. My sinuses have opened up and I can breathe much better and I have found that a lot of my headaches were caused by my TMJ which has been treated and has worked. The atmosphere in the office is absolutely wonderful. Everyone is friendly and it almost feels like you belong to a family instead of being a patient. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone who has any type of pain or medical problems. Much can  be treated with proper back alignment.

Trish Coleman May 2021

I came to Grand Strand Health and Wellness with terrible jaw, neck, and shoulder pain. My symptoms started with shoulder pain and moved to my neck and then to my left jaw. Over a period of a few days, it had progressed until I was unable to chew solid food. I had never experienced jaw pain like this and was unable to get any relief. The staffs at Grand Stand Health and Wellness were very welcoming and Dr. Crilley quickly reviewed my X – Rays to help me assess my plan for chiropractic care. Since starting regular chiropractic care I can chew solid food and have improved range of motion with my arm and neck. I would highly recommend Grand Strand Health and Wellness!
