Dr.Gary Chandler

Chiropractic Physician

Hi, I am Dr Gary Chandler and I have been practicing in Grays Harbor for 28 years. During that time I have had the honor of providing chiropractic care for hundreds, if not thousands of people in our community. I treat family members of all ages and stages of life.

I practice Diversified Technique, which means I use a variety of tools and adjusting techniques, including manual adjustments, (with my hands) activator adjustments and The Thompson Technique. The activator is a small tapping device which is perfect for babies and older people. The Thompson Technique is a chiropractic adjustment that uses a segmented drop table to adjust the spine. This stretches the spine slightly and so requires less force to move the spinal joints. It is a popular and effective non-invasive treatment.

I tailor the treatment to the patient, using the methods that are most comfortable and effective for them. I treat newborn infants to help them with issues such as colic and digestive upset or constipation. I adjust Loggers and people who do physical work, pregnant women, the elderly. I treat quite a variety of people that have different needs, so I adjust them according to what works best for them.

Along with resolving pain, chiropractic adjustments also remove interference in communication throughout the nervous system. This restores proper function. The spinal column protects our spinal cord and nervous system. There are 31 pairs of spinal nerves that emanate from the spinal cord composed of both sensory and motor fibers that function as the intermediary between the central nervous system and the periphery. If one of the nerves is irritated because one of the spinal joints is out of alignment, it can cause dysfunction in different areas of the body as well as pain. That is why chiropractic is such an effective, natural treatment that addresses the underlying cause of the problem.
