The short answer to how Dr. Grabouski became an Overland Park sports chiropractor: baseball.
Dr. Justin Grabouski has been lauded as one of the best chiropractors in Kansas. His accolades include being a Pinnacle Award Top 25 Chiropractor for five years running and more than 100 five-star reviews on Google. A surprise to many is that Dr. Justin wasn’t always planning on becoming a chiropractor. But fate (and baseball) stepped in.
According to Dr. Grabouski, his original goal was to earn a medical degree. His plans were moving along until he suffered a devastating injury playing baseball in college. His injuries meant he could no longer play, and he was suffering from pain that did not seem to want to go away. This was obviously alarming to the young athlete who visited numerous healthcare providers, including physical therapists and orthopedic surgeons. Nothing worked.
The future sports chiropractor was frustrated, to say the least. After a chance encounter with an athletic trainer he knew, Grabouski was pointed toward chiropractic. A bit skeptical at first, Grabouski decided to give chiropractic a chance at the urging of his grandfather. After a few visits, the sports chiropractor allowed the future Dr. Grabouski to shadow him in the office. What still stands out in Dr. Grabouski’s mind is how happy the chiropractor’s patients were. He knew then that chiropractic was his calling.
Today, the Overland Park sports chiropractor remains passionate about providing quality chiropractic care. He sees patients from high school baseball players to retired men and women who spend more time on the golf course than at home. He says that each of these athletes benefit from the range of motion, improved response time, and added flexibility gained through chiropractic manipulation.
More than just treating and helping to prevent injuries of the back, Dr. Grabouski explains that a sports chiropractor can assist with injuries throughout the body, including those of the ankle and knee. Chiropractic care can also reduce issues associated with stress fractures, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and tendinitis.
Specialized sports chiropractic care is within reach to all residents of the Overland Park area.
