Dr. Griffis’ belief in chiropractic and health goes back to high school and college where he had a major interest in health and physical fitness. This evolved into a career as a Health and Physical Education teacher. During this time he took health, physical fitness and nutrition to a higher level. He became involved in distance running, triathlons and eventually worked up to doing 50 mile mountain races.
Nutrition and chiropractic played a big part in helping him function optimally during these times. He saw what good nutrition and chiropractic did for him and others which led him to pursue a career in chiropractic.
Dr. Griffis is a firm believer that good health is the responsibility of the individual and that as a chiropractor he can help to guide and assist his clients towards that optimal health.
