Dr. Stephen Griswold received his Bachelor of Science degree in BioMedical Engineering from Arizona State University in 1996. While completing his undergraduate studies he was introduced to chiropractic. Chiropractic changed his life, and he decided to alter his future plans and enroll in the Palmer College of Chiropractic. Dr. Griswold graduated from Palmer in 2001 and has been in private practice in the Middle Georgia ever since.
Dr. Griswold has studied a wide range of chiropractic techniques including Gonstead, Palmer Package and Activator. He has also very successful protocols for the non-surgical treatment of the cervical and lumbar spine with the use of DTS Spinal Decompression Therapy and Cold Laser Therapy.
Dr. Griswold views wellness from a holistic perspective. His concept of wellness consists of using Chiropractic as the foundation for wellness. With this foundation, he believes other aspects of health like nutrition, exercise, stretching, strength training and patient education can be incorporated into the Wellness model. He believes that to be well requires getting adjusted on a regular basis and having an optimal functioning spine and nervous system: This equates to optimal health. If the nervous system is not functioning as well as it could be, the body is in a state of “dis-ease.” The absence of symptoms does not, therefore, equate to health. He believes that wellness is the optimal functioning of mind, body and spirit.
Dr. Griswold’s goals also include educating the community on the benefits of chiropractic and how the body can heal itself, if allowed to function at its optimum capacity. He wants to adjust as many people as possible and convert them to wellness, enabling them to enjoy the benefits of chiropractic that he experiences on a daily basis, such as better health, lack of disease, life without medication, no allergies, a healthier life, and the ability to exercise without concerns of pain. Dr. Griswold wants everyone to have the freedom to live life. His desire is to change the concept of “sick care” to “health care.” He wants people to view Chiropractic as part of a preventative, proactive lifestyle resulting in overall wellness.
