Services & Techniques

At C & R Family Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different chiropractic services offered in our Grand Rapids chiropractic office, but please call us at 616-554-0077 if you have any questions!

Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractors utilize various Chiropractic Spinal Techniques and Cranial Adjusting (CATS: Cranial Adjusting Turner Style) in order to care for each person as an individual. Dr's. Ryan and Carly Sorrell have years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get results. Chiropractic Care has resolved or brought significant improvement  to a variety of health issues but is not limited to headaches, reflux, TMJ, asthma, stress, concussions, pregnancy, memory loss, ADHD, Autism, menstrual discomfort, whiplash. Chiropractic looks to the power source of the body, our Nervous System for any interference and uses Chiropractic Adjustments to remove the interference which allows your body to heal itself from the inside. Chiropractic has a philosophy of health, a science of the Nervous System and the art of spinal and cranial adjusting. Chiropractic care under a trained professional allows you to live a life at a level of optimum daily performance. Chiropractic care is a way of prevention so you are able to make better health care choices for you and your family.


Corrective Exercises

At C & R Family Chiropractic Center, we teach our patients how to perform "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractors will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.


Lifestyle Advice

Many of our patients come to see our chiropractors to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractors will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.


Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural  treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!

Testimonial

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was in a very serious car accident October of 2004. I visited an MD & Neurologist for almost a year and had very little improvement even w/ physical therapy. When Dr. Sorrell opened his practice nearby I stopped in. Within a few weeks I could move my shoulders and neck farther than I had for over a year.I am now back at the gym, swimming. And I don't have a headache every day. I recommend trying chiropractic. It works for me."

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
