Kansas City Pediatric And Pregnancy Chiropractor, Dr. Garrett Smith, Brings Over 4 Years Of Experience And Dedication And 700+ Hours In Pediatric Specific Training To The People He Cares For
Dr. Garrett played football in college and worked in a factory that left him with severe back pain. Unable to get out of bed, he sought the help of the team’s athletic trainers, who couldn’t agree on what was wrong. They sent him to the team physician, who took expensive images but didn’t inform Dr. Garrett what was happening. Finally, at the end of his rope and needing to return to work, he went to a Chiropractor who got him up and running. Not only was the back pain alleviated, but the digestive issues he’d had for years cleared up, too. “I realized there was more to Chiropractic. I knew being a pro football player wasn’t in my future. If I could help someone like the Chiropractor helped me, it would be a rewarding and fulfilling career path.”
Dr. Garrett attended Cleveland Chiropractic College, where he complemented his Chiropractic education in school by traveling to various conferences that would further hone his craft. “I look at Chiropractic care as an art form that has to be trained on daily. After my graduation, I completed a mission trip to Haiti, where despite a language barrier, I adjusted about 800 people in eight days. It was a fantastic, hands-on experience.” Dr. Garrett has been extensively trained on how to work with children, from newborns to those with demanding, neuro-developmental challenges, such as ADHD, SPD, ASD and many other health conditions. To further his knowledge, Dr. Garrett takes regular continuing education courses on topics such as Applied Kinesiology, the Webster Technique and more. Licensed in acupuncture, he finds it gratifying to be able to use this form of Traditional Chinese Medicine to help his patients experience pain relief and much more.
Dr. Garrett is passionate about serving all ages, particularly children and entire families who improve their health together. He started the practice years ago with his Mother as his office manager. When you arrive today, you will likely meet his wife, Jacquelyn. She shares the passion of holistic health that this practice is all about, and is currently finishing up a Master’s Certification in Nutrition Therapy.
Outside of the office, Dr. Garrett likes to spend time with his family, exercise, travel, and prepare to welcome their first child in the Spring of 2020! He’s a newly certified doula, a member of the Missouri State Chiropractic Association, and an active member of Epic Pediatrics.
Improvement in All Areas of Life
We've seen a lot of improvement in his speech and his vocabulary has grown vastly. I'm able to have more conversations with him. He has more control over his body and we're seeing so much improvement in all areas of his life.

Given Her Life Back
In only 4 visits for my daughter, they have given her life back to her. Relieving her completely from debilitating depression for over 10 yrs, anxiety, OCD, and panic attacks that at times kept her from going out.
It is truly a miracle. She is playing music, painting, drawing. She told me tonight she can't ever remember being this happy in her life. I thank God for leading me to Dr. Steve. He may just have saved her life. She has been suicidal for years. She is just 19 yrs old. God bless you Steve for saving my daughter and me from the hell we've been in for so long.

The increase in affection has been the greatest reward since our son started care. We are so grateful Dr. Steve.

We have seen so many changes in Liam since he’s been coming. He went from having up to 60 seizures a day to seizure free.

Kindness, Respect & Patience
Dr. Steve and his staff at the Center for Health and Human Potential have treated our daughter with special needs with total kindness, complete respect, and immeasurable patience.
It has been one of the most comfortable experiences with healthcare, and we would recommend any parent to look into services at CHHP, whether to improve a specific condition or to seek out general health benefits from their approach to chiropractic care.

Improvement with Seizures
Although Dylan still has a long way to go, we have seen significant improvements with his seizures, medication dosages, and trunk control. I feel confident that we will see even more progress as he continues to see Dr. Steve!

More Sociable and Happy
My daughter has come out of her shell. She is more sociable on her own without being prompted to speak. It's a wonderful feeling to see her so happy where before I would have to encourage her to reply to people when spoken to. She is on the safety patrol at school and encourages students K-8 to follow rules. I can't believe she is telling 8th graders to follow rules!
