Like a number of other injured athletes who were looking for healing, Dr. Justin Grabouski decided to earn a chiropractic degree (D.C.) because of a chiropractor’s expertise in diagnosing and treating neuromusculoskeletal conditions and diseases.
“I was seriously injured while playing college baseball,” Grabouski said. “I saw athletic trainers, physical therapists, specialists. They did a great job, but nothing seemed to help at the time.”
Finally, Grabouski was approached by an athletic trainer who suggested he visit a chiropractor.
“I went, and that chiropractic fixed me – changed my entire life,” he says.
Now, 13 years after earning his doctor of chiropractic degree, he knows that chiropractic is a healthcare profession with a tremendous future.
“The age range in our office is from three days old to 93 years,” Grabouski says. “Everybody benefits from some sort of chiropractic care.”
