Transforming Lives – Naturally

We strive to help our patients achieve OPTIMAL HEALTH though chiropractic care, nutrition, exercise, and stress management.  We are dedicated to your health and bringing the highest quality of natural health care to families and athletes in Central Ohio.  We provide a wide variety of services to maximize your health and improve your quality of life.  We focus on treating entire families from birth to old age.  In addition, we pride ourselves in our ability to help athletes improve performance as well as prevent and manage sports injuries.  We want YOU to reach a higher level!  We are here to make Central Ohio the healthiest community in America!  

Our Philosophy

At Ohio Family & Sports Chiropractic we believe OPTIMAL HEALTH is achieved through a partnership between the physician and patient.  We consider YOU as a person, not only the condition you enter our office with.  Health Care at OFSC is patient centered, and focused on PREVENTING disease through vigilance and education.

The human body, under normal circumstances, has the incredible ability to heal itself.  Unfortunately, in our society we have forgotten how to care for our bodies and have allowed obstacles such as poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, and most importantly, spinal dysfunction to prevent us from achieving optimal health.  As chiropractors it is our job to help our patients eliminate these obstacles and allow their bodies to function at 100%.

The public is now beginning to seek new ways to obtain health.  Our holistic approach to health care is based on the four keys to proper health:  chiropractic care, nutrition, exercise, and stress management.  Ohio Family and Sports Chiropractic IS redefining health in our community.

Dr. Greg’s Personal Note:

“As a high school freshman I was injured by a collision during basketball practice.  Following this collision I experienced several severe migraine headaches.  After all the medications failed my parents brought me to our local chiropractor who treated the neck problem that caused my headaches.  Chiropractic has since become not just a career for me, but a lifestyle.  Outside of our office I enjoy hiking, rollerblading, kayaking, cycling, woodworking, and working with young pitchers.

Dr. Heather’s Personal Note:

“I love the natural, holistic premise of chiropractic.  I hope to educate the public that there are ways to approach health from a natural, drug-free angle.  I originally chose chiropractic as a profession due to my experience as an athlete (gymnastics and rowing) who benefited greatly from chiropractic care.   As I moved into the motherhood season of life, my interest in chiropractic care for women during pregnancy and postpartum grew, as well as for infants and children.  I have personally experienced the benefits of chiropractic while pregnant and seen how it has helped my children as an infants and throughout childhood.  Finally, I find it very rewarding working with all patients to improve their diet  Now, I spend much of my time homeschooling our 5 children.  When I have a spare moment, I enjoy gardening, reading, knitting, and CrossFit.  Most dear to my heart is my role as a wife and mom.”
