Inspired Chiropractic with Jeff Griffin
What other complementary modalities are you trained in?
Besides chiropractic, I have advanced training and diplomate status in maternity care and pediatrics through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. I’ve also completed training as a certified wellness practitioner through the International Chiropractic Association and have advanced training with the Loomis Institute as a digestive health practitioner. I also received certification as an internal health care provider through Logan College of Chiropractic, which focuses on multiple internal disorders associated with the human body.
When and why did you start incorporating these modalities into your practice?
A little over 15 years ago, I began blending my knowledge as a chiropractor and my training from Dr. Howard Loomis of the Loomis Institute. He helped “pull it all together” into a system of diagnosis and treatment that easily puts me on the ballfield and, in most cases, allows me to hit a home run with my patients’ health care.
What sets integrative chiropractors apart from traditional chiropractors?
Nothing against other chiropractors that focus specifically on the spinal adjustment. I get it… that’s what we all went to chiropractic school for—to learn how to identify and treat structural issues. But what if that’s not where your patient’s neck or back pain is coming from? Being able to look beyond structural issues to identify the source of stress allows me to add depth to the services I offer my patients.
How do you work in partnership with other medical providers in an effort to create a comprehensive health plan for your patients?
Partnering is never an issue. In fact, I enjoy it because, in most cases, the primary physician has already ruled out disease. In situations of disease, medication will work best. But what if no disease is found, yet the patient is symptomatic? These are the patients I love to treat. Clearly, they have no disease process but their body isn’t functioning normally. This is where a practitioner such as myself can look at things from a different angle that often reveals the source of the stress. Once you locate the source of stress, then the treatment becomes obvious.
