Products & Services

Personal Injury

Chiropractors are professionals who uncover underlying issues in personal injury accidents. Whether using a single spinal adjustment or a series of treatment, visiting a chiropractor is one of the best options to start the healing process.

If you find yourself in a personal injury accident, schedule a consultation with a chiropractor, as you may have underlying issues that we can help diagnose and treat.

Auto Injury

Chiropractors are able to treat neck and back injuries associated with auto accidents. Many times, individuals who have been injured in a car accident experience such intense muscle pain and stiffness that they simply cannot function normally. When left untreated, this discomfort can be a serious issue.

After an auto accident, some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, shoulder pain, dizziness, reduced range of motion and arm pain. Whiplash can also result in minor back injuries, muscle injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Other individuals may be injured and feel nothing at all.

Treating pain or whiplash should never be secondary to bringing your car at the mechanic or working with your insurance company. If you’ve had an auto accident recently, your first priority should be taking the initiative to visit your chiropractor!

  • I would recommend this business

Dr. Tyler is a godsend. Even though I live in Laramie, and contacted him initially for an emergency appointment on the weekend, he was so kind and flexible and willing to accomodate me - got me right in!

Dr. Tyler differs from other chiropractors in that inasmuch as he works to help his patients regain mobility and eliminate pain from injuries or strains, most importantly, his gift is that he works collaboratively with his patients. His objectives center around helping you, the patient, to learn about your body, holistically, so that you may integrate the various exercises and healing modalities he will personalize to your concerns/imbalances.

He is such a genuine and caring health practitioner. He is absolutely worth the trip to Fort Collins if you are not local. Dr. Tyler is extremely knowledgeable, professional, but extends patient-centered care in a truly responsive and lovely way.

Customer Testimonials

Dr. Garrett is the best, always there to help, I have been going to Dr. G. for years and wish he and staff would move up to the mountains, Payson, as it would be easier for me to see him:) Jenn is awesome and I always feel much better when I see her. You all need to come up to the mountains. thanks much for all the great treatments.

Dr. Garrett is the only one I trust to adjust my whole family! He and his staff are always professional and will go out of their way to find ways to get you healthy! Thank you!

Dr. Garrett and his team are genuinely concerned about my family's well being. We have been seeing Doc for 10 years and my overall well being has improved dramatically since my initial visit. My wife and children see him weekly for adjustments as well. Adjustments with massage from Jen keep our spines aligned and body's healthy. Thank you for all you do for us!

I recommend Dr. Garrett and his staff for complete chiropractic care. They are very professional and helped me tremendously with a problem I was having with vertigo. I am able to function and sleep peacefully without waking up to the room spinning. Thank you Dr. Garrett and Jen for your great care. Love the office staff as well.

I haven't been to Dr. Garrett in ~3 years due to moving to CO, but when I did visit him him and his staff were amazing. They were all really good people and I completely trusted my health in Dr. Garrett's hands.

I can't remember their name's but the front desk receptionist was always personable and really nice to me even reaching out when I was dealing with severe depression. The pretty, young, blonde massage therapist is one of the best that I've ever been to.
I've seen some quack chiropractor's and I've been to some top notch ones. This is what a chiropractor's office should be.

Dr Garrett and his team are just amazing!! If you are looking for Chiropractor or massage therapist look no further then Optimal Health Center!! They care deeply about you and your whole family's health care!!

I was always told "you're just going to have to LIVE with it." I believed that all through my childhood, because it seem to be true: I had Asthma as long as I could remember until I started getting adjusted for my NECK problem I created through working toward one of my Black Belts in the Martial Arts. Since I had experienced chiropractic for myself and the MIRACLE of no longer needing the 3 different Asthma medications to live a" Normal " life, my path to being a chiropractor had been laid. The thought of helping others with their health limitations and expanding their sense of possibility of what "could be" if they just felt better or had better health without feeling dependent on a CHEMICAL to survive.
