When Amy Kerr was younger, she suffered from severe migraines. She missed a lot of classes in high school and had to isolate in a dark room for days at a time.
It was when she started seeing a chiropractor that things improved. They adjusted her spine to remove nerve interference and improve overall body function by getting the nerves communicating better.
“Not only did it get rid of my migraines, it helped my overall health and I decided it was what I wanted to do,” Amy said. “Spinal manipulation got rid of my migraines.”
Grace Chiropractic, at 13720 N. Cleveland Ave. has been in business for 22 years, with Joshua and Amy Kerr having taken over ownership of it in December 2019 after the original owner retired.
Joshua was a contractor for the military, while Amy graduated from chiropractic school in Iowa (Where she worked briefly out of college) and took a job in Georgia before coming to Southwest Florida.
“We love it here. How can you not? It’s paradise all year long,” Amy said.
Joshua Kerr, clinic director, said they closed on the clinic on March 13, 2020, just when COVID hit, making the first year in business a tough one.
“We’re still here, growing the patient base of the clinic and looking forward to everything going back to normal,” Joshua said. “It was about patient relations, making them feel better and they tell their neighbors and friends and the word spread.”
Grace Chiropractic is an integrated clinic, Joshua said. There is an MD on staff along with a chiropractor and physical therapist and an assistant, making it a one-stop shop.
Chiropractic does not only handle the back, it actually handles the entire body, from headaches to vertigo and even jaw pain.
“Anywhere there’s a joint of extremity pain, that joint can get out of joint. It needs to be adjusted and put back where it goes,” Joshua said. “We refer back and forth with the dentist next door.”
“We pair chiropractic with physical therapy. We get our patient well a lot faster and stay well a lot longer and with the multiple providers in one place we get a lot of great minds behind each patient and provide excellent care,” Amy said.
Grace Chiropractic is open Monday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is open on weekends for emergencies only.
