Here at Griffes Chiropractic, we have a number of services to fit your specific needs. If you are experiencing pain, loss of function, feeling out of alignment, or looking to improve your health, we can help.
To assist all of our patients, we offer the following services:
Chiropractic spinal adjustments: Dr. Griffes has 32 years experience adjusting the spine, always learning new techniques to improve his ability to deliver the best chiropractic experience for his patients. He uses a number of different methods that are gentle and non-force, and will adjust you in a manner that is the best for you. Dr. Griffes also includes spinal traction/decompression in his practice as an effective method for addressing herniated discs and sciatica.
Deep-tissue bodywork: Dr. Griffes is one of only a handful of people in the world who are chiropractors and trained as Hellerwork practitioners. Hellerwork is a method of deep-tissue bodywork designed to realign the muscles, release old habit patterns that contribute to tension and restriction in the body, and teach new patterns of movement that promote ease and efficiency. Dr. G continues to employ the basic principles of Hellerwork that he first learned in 1981 as an adjunct to his chiropractic care.
Exercise prescription: Dr. Griffes earned a Master’s Degree in Physical Education from CSUN in 1986, and continues to study the latest trends in fitness and conditioning. He wrote a book on stretching in 2001, and continues to teach his patients the benefits of stretching, along with practical suggestions for improving their health and fitness and their sports performance. Dr. G is also active in mountain biking, hiking, golf and disc golf.
Lifestyle coaching: Optimal health includes eating properly, getting adequate amount of sleep, watching your posture and have a positive mental attitude. Dr. Griffes works with his patients to help them with their weight management, sleeping well and improving their posture, usually with simple suggestions that can help make noticeable lifestyle improvements.
