Located in Bremerton, Smith Chiropractic & Sports Rehab is like no other chiropractic office in Kitsap County. Built and opened in August of 2010, our new location is designed with the care of patients in mind. To meet the demands of a diverse patient population our doctors combine traditional family chiropractic care with the latest techniques in conservative sports medicine including: active release techniques (myofascial), passive joint mobilization, therapeutic kinesio taping, flexion-distraction therapy, and strengthening exercises. All our sports medicine doctors specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders ranging from a recent traumatic event to a chronic injury. As sport chiropractors we understand that no two people and no two conditions are the same. We work with each patient to create a rehabilitation program that is based on each patients presenting symptoms and individual goals.
We understand that conservative care comes with limitations, therefore to optimize your care we maintain relationships with local orthopedic surgeons and other specialists in case treatment response is not ideal or the condition requires immediate referral.
In addition, we provide massage therapy services, acupuncture treatment, biomechanical analysis of the golf swing and gait, personal training and sports performance training for individuals or teams. Our goal is to alleviate pain, identify any underlying dysfunctions and provide the tools to prevent re-occurrence.The combination of services we offer allow us to quickly and effectively treat patients from elite level athletes and weekend warriors to those suffering from repetitive stress injuries. Our highly skilled staff are committed to providing each patient with personalized gentle and safe care centered on the special needs of our patients, one size does not fit all.
Dr. Graeme Smith, founder and owner of Smith Chiropractic in 2004 performed his undergraduate studies at Olympic College in Bremerton, Washington. Following graduation, he went on to earn a doctorate of chiropractic at Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon.
Upon returning to Bremerton he became fully certified in ART (active release techniques) and has utilized this soft tissue system to release the pain of almost any chronic or acute injury.
Dr. Smith has since furthered his studies and has added CCSP (certified chiropractic sports physician) to his resume. This allows him to work with teams on the field of play and to stay in touch with and teach the latest in functional strength and performance techniques.
Combining his passion for golf and exercise Dr. Smith became a level 3 medical golf fitness instructor certification with TPI (Titleist Performance Institute). Now he is using golf specific evaluation and exercises to enhance his patients golf game. He also has studied gait biomechanics to help with diagnosing running injuries.
Outside the office Graeme enjoys playing golf, swimming, cycling and running. When he gets the chance loves travelling with his wife and daughter back to his home town in South Africa.
