This lady is the absolutely the best chiropractor in Santa Cruz and in the Bay Area. She ended my two years neck pain in four sessions in 1997, and the pain disappeared since then. Thanks a lot!” ZH, Yahoo Local reviews »

“The moment you enter my chiropractic office, the focus and the gentle, effective care you’ll receive during your treatment centers on you and your specific needs. If you are suffering from chronic back pain, back or other injury, neck pain, shoulder pain, foot pain, headaches, or other acute or chronic conditions, my skillful Directional Non-Force Technique® (DNFT) holistic approach will deliver consistent, thorough results in just a few appointments.” – Dr. Katie Griffin

“It may be gentle, but the results are powerful,” say Dr. Griffin’s and Dr. Bayless’ patients.

Using a chiropractic modality called Directional Non-Force Technique® (DNFT®) Chiropractic, Dr. Griffin and Dr. Bayless repeatedly get quick and lasting results for her patients. Listen to how Dr. Griffin describes it in the video above.

DNFT®, or “Directional Non-Force Technique” chiropractic, is a gentle technique that delivers highly effective results, often beyond expectations and without the torque and strong force often associated with traditional chiropractic. It is practiced by only a handful of elite practitioners, and Dr. Griffin and Dr. Bayless are proud to be two of them.

Your first visit includes approximately 40 – 45 minutes of one-to-one treatment time from Dr. Griffin or Dr. Bayless to alleviate your pain.  This isn’t just a conversation session – this is real treatment with real progress.

If additional appointments are needed, each lasts approximately 20 minutes, all one-to-one treatment time with you and Dr. Griffin or Dr. Bayless.

Dr. Griffin and Dr. Bayless believe a 5 minute appointment will never produce sustainable results, and so no appointment is ever that short.

Make an appointment with Dr. Griffin or Dr. Bayless and you’ll experience gentle, non-force chiropractic adjustments that will empower you and your natural physical capabilities. With their dedicated and genuine care during your appointments you can expect:

  • Recommendations for movements, habits, and activities that will help prevent recurrence.
  • Education and suggestions empowering you to take charge of your health.
  • Referrals, if needed, to a variety of trusted healthcare practitioners in the local Santa Cruz area and beyond with proven results.
  • Relief from back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, shoulder pain, foot pain, headaches and more.
