Dr. Katie Griffin helped me so much. Her treatments were painless. After years of low back pain radiating down my legs and an uneven gait, which made things worse, she realigned my pelvis and all of those problems went away. She was also able to help me with joint pain and inflammation that had been bothering me for several months. She is a wonderful healer!

Dr. Katie Griffin is an extraordinary healer who I feel saved me from a lifetime of lower back pain. I had a serious accident when a tall, heavy object fell on me. I collapsed under its weight with my spine twisted. In such pain I could hardly breathe and could not walk I made one of the the smartest decisions in m life. I went directly to Dr. Katie's instead of to Emergency. Without any pushing or cracking or any force, she un-did my spinal situation and I walked out of there about 45 minutes later,sore but not in pain. I shudder to think if I had gone to emergency--drugs, a long wait--who knows. I have been helped by Dr. Katie each time I have gone in to see her, but this incident "took the cake". Thank you Dr. Griffin for your skill, kindness and integrity.

Integrity combined with knowledge, experience and desire to help every one of her patients live a life filled with freedom of movement. This is what I have come to trust in Dr. Griffin. Her type of non force Chiropractic care opens up the body's natural ability to heal and she gets results 100% of the time. This is the kind of healing that works fast and lasts, in fact, she releases you from her care as soon as the injury has healed. She is dedicated to her profession and to helping her patients live a pain free life. This is why I recommend her if you need a Chiropractor you can trust.

I have been seeing Dr. Katie for about 3 years now. She has fixed me! I have been struggling with migraines, jaw pain, and low back pain for about a decade. I just about gave up! Until I made the best decision I had ever made about my health. I went to see Dr Katie. Her method really works! I only see her on occasion now when my body get a bit out of sorts. She fixed my jaw completely, I have an occasional migraine and my low back has been fixed. Thank you Dr Katie and giving me my freedom back. I really appreciate it!

Dr. Katie Griffin is an outstanding example of a medical practitioner who is not only extraordinarily skilled, she is also deeply compassionate and focussed on healing! She really means it when she says 3-6 visits EVER. I've seen her 3 times and her work shifted my body in a way that 7 years of visiting other practitioners did not. Amazing. Simply amazing.

Dr Katie Griffin is an exceptional chiropractor and health professional. The approach/form she practices (Directional Non-Force) is extremely gentle, with no jarring or cracking. In addition, her goal is to get to the root of the problem in as few visits as possible so that you don’t have to continue going to get adjustments. I went to Dr. Katie a while back for hip pain that I had for years. I had tried a variety of doctors and modalities and nothing helped. After a few visits to Dr. Katie, my pain was gone. I also felt more energy after her treatments, which was an added bonus. In addition to her expertise, knowledge and skill in her field, Dr. Katie’s passion and dedication to her patients and her work is also exceptional. She is a true professional and I highly recommend her!

Dr. Katie Griffin utilizes an incredible technique to restore alignment and balance with a non-force, gentle approach. Her demeanor is as gentle and healing as her technique. She is unlike other chiropractors. The way she performs adjustments is so calming, that it is possible to sleep through a session. Her adjustments hold, so people usually only need a few visits with her. The office is clean and bright, and the front desk staff is friendly and kind. Dr. Griffin's years of experience truly shows with her ability to help people feel more centered, connected and comfortable in their bodies again. I highly recommend Dr. Griffin to my patients, and I also see her for my own care. She is truly an amazing and unique chiropractor.

I love Dr. Katie! I I have been going to chiropractors religiously after having back surgery several years ago. One of the greatest benefits of using Dr. Katie is that she can fix you in just a few visits rather than continuous on-going treatment. Not only does by back feel great, but I've saved a ton of money over the past few years! Thanks Dr. Katie.
